Who said every cloud doesn’t have a silver lining?
I’m guessing new bookings to Greece may have dropped a bit, and the sale announced yesterday by Aegean Airlines is another good piece of evidence in support of that.
ETA: reading is apparently harder than I thought. As pointed out to me in comments, the T&C of the fare sale are for domestic segments. However, when I looked at this yesterday I saw cheap flights from Paris, Istanbul, Frankfurt, Berlin, etc, all in the price ranges.
That’s a screaming good deal, especially considering what I paid for tickets to get from Greece to Paris for our trip later this summer (hint: quite a bit more than 39 Euro).
Why is this relevant? They fly a lot of places in Europe:
And, you can get there from a bunch of places in the US. For example, US Airways flies nonstop from Philly, United has a lot of connecting itineraries through Frankfurt with Lufthansa. And, Aegean is a Star Alliance partner, which means you can earn PQMs and RDMs on United (though you may not want to, depending on the fare class).
So, consider a quick detour to Greece. And, you might want to bring some cash with you. 😉
