Thank you Wim for reviving this important subject. We are flying to Heraklion by the end of the month: Oslo-Munich-Athens-Heraklion, and find it takes more time (and costs more) than flying Oslo-Heraklion direct. This option will only begin in late March.

With present concern about CO2 emissions, we wish that seafaring nations like yours and mine would restore the proud period of the windjammers! B)

Sorry! www.kayak.com is the name of the site for searching airline connections. I found it very useful!

Thanks to both of you, Ian and John! Cayak.com also led me to BA, where I now have booked tickets for OSL LHR ATH. The convenience of booking luggage through to Athens convinced me not to look for more economy solutions. I now also have tickets on Aegean for Heraklion, but was surprised to find that while the flight is advertized for 19 E, the extra charges adds it up to 46.

I shall try to get the refund you mention, John.

You are right, John,

I planned to correct it, but you were there before me!

I can fly OSL CPH LGW ATH but with all the charges added on top of each fare, flying BA from Oslo via Heathrow may still be my best bet. I will check the airlines suggested by Mani in his last post before I make the booking. Thank you both for your help!
