It should be a Boeing 737, 400 I think. Kosmar, Golden Sun and Price right (all the main greek specialists) usually get together and charter flights to greece each summer and share capacity. In the past they have used somre really dodgy airlines and indeed even more dodgy planes. Air Miles 737, Hola Airlines 737 - with Spanish crew!, Macedonian airlines 737. Aegean I have not personally flown with but have heard that they are very good as they were once a buisness airline which flew inter island within Greece before merging with Cronus Air (a naff Greek charter company). Your parents are lucky they didn't end up on Islandsflug (Icelandic carrier) as they were amongst the ranks of bad airlines I mentioned above, somehow though they were lucky enough to be awarded more NCL
- Greece flights this year unlike the others.
When I booked with Golden Sun to fly NCL
back in 97, I was chartered to fly on Nordic East but a few weeks before, we were informed that the airline were performing poorly and therefore we would now be flying on Air Atlanta. Flight times were changed from 18:20 originally to 08:00 departure so I was quite pleased. However we were not told at the time of booking that the KGS
flight continued on to RHO
, so on out return after a week we had to make the short hop to RHO
, sit onboard whilst the remaining homeward bound got on (1hr) then flew back, so my whole time sat on the plane back from KGS
was nearly 7hrs!
I cannot really complain as it was a beatiful Lockheed Tristar and I got one albeit short extra flight out of it too.
