Subject: Re: Need information on new Athens airport
We are leaving for Greece on May 16, and have been advised by our Greek friends that we are making a mistake this year by flying to Athens...

The new airport is opened and they say that it's chaos there! Baggage is lost on a regular basis and flights are often badly delayed if not cancelled altogether.

If anyone has information on this situation, I'd really appreciate hearing from you. We are flying through Germany on Lufthansa and there is a chance for us to bypass Athens by flying directly to Crete from Germany - taking high-speed ferries from there to our destination.

I hope someone can help us as Athens Airport (the old one) was, unfortunately, no bargain and we don't want to be stuck in the new one.

Thanks in advance, Susie Newton, MA
