A touching moment at the end of an era : SX-DFB with gear up at the start of a low pass over runway 03L on her return trip from Montreal and Toronto as OA 424. This was the last intercontinental flight for Olympic which ceases operations today (2009-9-30). Dedicated to the crew and all Olympic Airways and Airlines employees.

Nice moment captured, but personally, I won't miss the old Olympic at all.

I was lucky enough to witness the last revenue flight of this A340 as it departed Montreal's runway 24R and glad you managed to snap this great shot as it arrived in Athens. We will miss seeing OA in YUL!

I will miss old OA as much as I do the good romantic Hellinikon airport and the Emmantina Hotel.

Wish I could have flown them again. Only once, from Athens to Santorini. Always wanted to fly the OA A340...too late now.

I have enjoyed many pleasant trans-Atlantic trips on Olympic. I will truly miss this airline, and I hope that it will one day return to JFK. 5 stars from me.

A truly magnificent photo illustrating a truly magnificent airline. I have enjoyed a number of flights on SX-DFB and her "sisters", and I hope the new Olympic Air will one day return to JFK.
