Ok...here are some of my ideas!

International flights with mix of eihter A-34S/33S or 777/787 to

JFK/ORD/YYZ/BWI or IAD/BOS/YUL/GRU/GIG/JNB/CPT/BKK/SIN
HKG/KIX/NRT/SHA/PEK/DEL/BOM/MEL(viaBKK)/ADL(viaBKK) and nonstop (!!) to SYD

Flights from Europe, SA)">NA, SA and Greece to connect to Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia
and flight from Asia, Africa, ME to connect to Greece, Europe and the Americas!

Athens will be the super hub!

Superb Lounges and extras for full fare Business Passengers

Internatinal Business Class with First Class Slepper seats and service

Low Fare Structure

etc.


...more ideas?....

Island operations - Dash 8-400's
Short Haul operations - Airbus A319 single cabin high density seating.
You are 100 times more likely to catch a cold on a flight than an average person!

No Greek unions involved and high staff productivity would be a fine start for the airline......

Quoting Delta777Jet (Reply 2):
JNB/CPT/BKK/SIN
HKG/KIX/NRT/SHA/PEK/DEL/BOM/MEL(viaBKK)/ADL(viaBKK) and nonstop (!!) to SYD

Watch out for Emirates, they could send in a B773 twice daily and soak up all the demand for Asia and Australia...  biting 

Better keep your money and spend it on tickets!  Wink

Force the Greek government to reduce the ridiculously high airport charges at Athens airport woiuld be a big advantage. No chance of competing with Emirates without that

A345's non stop to Australia - SYD + MEL
A332's for the remaining long-haul ops
Mix A319/320/321 for Europe and Middle East with leather seats and IFE
DH-8Q-400s for the smaller island flights
AVOD in all classes
Business Class with lie-flat seats
Economy class seat pitch 34" ( as in their 734's currently )
Top-notch Cabin crew, in flight service and catering- a true reflection of the Greek sense of hospitality.
Top-notch ground staff
Updated corporate ID and aircraft livery

Let's GO !

You get my vote I agree totaly! Especially for the 34' pitch.
Also consider the A346

Best regards
I am willing to pay extra for a A346 flight !

No no no! Please leave their livery well alone- it is a classic purely because it has not been messed around with.

What about serving BOS via MAN. Did OA ever get to operate the route that they planned to serve with an A300-600?

Did ATH ever get a train from the airport to downtown Athens?

Else i suggest a 737/320 shuttle service between ATH Venizelos (or how its spelled) and downtown Athens. It was quite a ride by bus last time I visited Big grin

perhaps we can land on some on the pedestrian paths build around Akropolis before the olympics were held. That would make our airline true olympian  Smile
Last flight: SAW-CPH on H9 on 02/11/09 - Next Flights: 23/12/09 CPH-AAL on QI, 30/12/09 CPH-LHR on SK, 19/01/10 CPH-CDG-

Hello to all!

I don't think OA should change its livery, which (to me) is one of the best in the world. As I used to fly frequently with OA for my vacations, I would like to suggest to change the timetable in order to schedule more flights to the islands without having to overnight in Athens; this is a user's point of view!

Paolo
