Summer has loaded - Strike ...

All flights to Greece that should arrive between 11-15.00 today will be delayed or cancelled due to an air traffic controllers strike ...

Plenty of grumpy comments on the wires this morning. The UK charters to Skiathos are just delayed. Many flights to Greece are cancelled this morning ...

Καλό ταξίδι - To Kay & Trevor, currently watching the clock at Gatwick awaiting their delayed departure to Skiathos at 10am. Look out for them as they head off to Boots now to stock up with repellent, as its raining in paradise right now ...

Post ATC strike update:


MT1418 /TCX31XF Ex Bristol and MT1106 /TCX67MF Ex Gatwick MT1194 /TCX25EQ ex Man are all in a queue. All descending into JSI at the moment ...

So Its @Neil_A_A leading closely followed by Kay & Trevor then the flat cap brigade.

Today's stunning typo is 'Archeledis beach' ...

The Thomas Cooks have all landed in close formation,  and there will be a queue at the luggage belts. Standby for a wave of complaints about the queue, and state of the toilets ..

Breezy landing at JSI ...

Whilst the island waits for fresh food supplies, tomorrow you can see how 'home made' hummus turns out ...

      Those who do not like fish, olives, pulses, prawns etc will be getting nervous if the strikes continue ...
