Safely Arrived in Athens!

Aloha Everyone,

Our flights to London on Virgin Atlantic, then from London to Athens on Aegean Airlines represented the best of air travel during the Covid pandemic. Business Class or using Virgin Atlantic’s term “Upper Class” allowed us to lay down flat with a pillow, mattress and blanket.  

We can’t thank enough the many wonderful people who work at various airports providing assistance to wheelchair passengers. They helped us ease not only moving from point A to point B and then C on unfamiliar airport terminals, but also provided valuable assistance in navigating confusing Covid check points.  

J.J.’s comprehensive preparation included scanning documents on our iPhones and having print copies even impressed the ground crew at Virgin Atlantic as well as Aegean.

We are staying overnight at Sofitel located just across the street fronting the Athens airport. Here is a visual chronology of our hectic but successful day’s activities.

Aloha -- Cathi
