Well, their website gives you the following message:

http://www.hellenicairways.com/

"The online booking engine is temporarily closed in order to improve our Service. We do apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and interest for
Hellenic Imperial Airways"

"Temporarily closed to improve our Service". Ha Ha, they got a good Spindoctor in their Marketing Department. I personally think they have been doomed ever since they tried to be profitable with 3-4 742 A/C, trying to move away from ad-hoc charter in to scheduled service.

One question: Crew?? How do they keep the crew on their rosters with no income? Do they just hire anything available when they get enough money to fly one plane or a charter mission?

Detroit is bankrupt. Don't forget to thank UAW folks!
