Call it a pit stop.
No need to leave the plane.
And also interesting, most DUS pax disembarked here at SKG.
Time for some talking with the FA´s and a view from the rear door.
The whole crew started at ATH this morning 6.30 am, briefing, preparations for the four legs along the day, max. 5 legs are possible and one young male FA joined us here

"Thessaloniki International Airport Makedonia
Διεθνής Κρατικός Αερολιμένας Θεσσαλονίκης Μακεδονία" at
5.10 pm, ten minutes ahead to schedule, "Aegean" and 35 minutes to fly. Departure from runway "One-Six" like arrivals, 13 degrees and just a few clouds around

With the modern style cabin, no changes by the way and this is leg
no. 32 on type now.
The load is very close to 100%, lot´s of biz people on the way.
34D for me again and also again, all three seats are taken.
Well, the few DUS to ATH pax who decided to change seats, also when the lead FA commented that there are new pax ahead are not that really amused to return to the original seats earlier, but that´s the way to go here!

Should I really walk back to the hotel right now?
 photo GRFEB2014108_zps64b13147.jpg
 photo GRFEB2014109_zpsfa741d99.jpg
Well, it seems I should!
 photo GRFEB2014110_zpsd88a111a.jpg
Well, should I really go to sleep tonight with all these magic signs around and well, too, some more talking with the nice woman at the hotels desk doesn´t help to extend my time to sleep!.

Here are the conclusions from day one around Greece:
1.)Airberlin STR-DUS: What about flying something else somedays?.
2.)Aegean DUS-SKG: As relaxed as a full service might be.
3.)Aegean SKG-ATH: Short and quiet for the capital.

And more to come this way.
Are you sure?. This is definitely not a greek coat of arms:
