In transit to Sitia

Just letting my avid readers know that I'm in transit from Athens to Sitia. I have a spare minute to update the blog, because the transit involved Olympic Airways (yes, it's coming), and I was put on the Olympic bus to the 08:35 flight (wait for it) only to be taken off it ten minutes later (get ready, now) because we are boarding another plane a half hour later.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen,

HELP BANKRUPT OLYMPIC AIRWAYS

The cute thing is, when we were taken off the bus, the woman next to me muttered


Να την κλείσουν δηλαδή να τελειώνουμε. Κι ύστερα σου λέει ιδιωτικοποίηση.


i.e.


Why don't they just close the airline down already. And they have the nerve to complain about privatising it.


I think this may be more pithily rendered in English as

HELP BANKRUPT OLYMPIC AIRWAYS
