RE: Olympic Airways 747-200 Leaving Athens

As for the "Greek Aviation Authorities" approving Olympic, I present this to you, from the FAA website:
Greece is rated Category 2 (Does Not Meet ICAO Standards) in FAA's International Aviation Safety Assessment Program (IASA)


NOT ANYMORE SINCE THE NEW AIRPORT OPENED.

Its basically up to IAS, when IAS gives the money which is about 102 EURO, then the government will gladly switch hands. IAS will give money for 51 percent of OAL and Greek Gov will have 49 percent. Both Sides will give up lots of money. I like the idea that a Billionare like Vardinoggianis will be ...

If Axon takes olympic we can kiss goodbye the a340s and all the routes they did. If IAS takes it I believe it will be much better.
