Could anyone explain why an A321 had to maintain a 2 hour holding pattern because of a small private plane that appears to be a Piper blocking the runway? Did it really take 2 hours to move this small plane off the runway? Hey, I may be wrong, but that sounds a little excessive to me. If it were an airliner, then 2 hours would be understandable.
Also if the A321 was going to wait 2 hours, why didn't it divert to one of the other Greek islands?
Any feedback would be appreciated.
