Hi all,

The uniform of Olympic Air crew to the left is interesting as this is the only airline along with Aegean that use sleeveless dresses, which is interesting

And some pictures of this great Island. Late fall or winter the island is deserted and empty of tourists, which make it very great for taking pictures as there are not many people around and you feel that you have the whole island to yourself. It's the most beautiful place on earth in my opinion. There are so many cute local cats who live there and there are many stray dogs as well but mostly in the Oia, which is to the north of the island.

Conclusion

Overall a great flight with Olympic air and great cabin and seat comfort. The crew were nice and attentive. Athens Airport was nice and big. Santorini airport was super small and tiny but it was ok as it was the winter season and not many tourists were around but I think in summer holidays it gets super crowded and tight for that many visitors.
