  1. Cancellation of Winter Schedule Service of Ryanair bye bye and dont come back to Crete
    Again this Winter Ryanair have left Cretans with no scheduled air service from Chania to Athens and Salonica.
    Cretans are not happy with the service provided by Ryanair.They seem to want to CHERRYPICK services within Greece for Winter months with no apologies.
    Well the attitude of Cretans is that Ryannair can take their planes back to ”Leprechaun Land” and dont come back.byebye to Ryanair.The Cretans have got a replacement airline to fill the void left by Ryanair.

  2. Looks like a very strict shut down , why ? Are people trying to escape from the tyranny of Pandemic controls. Freedom. I want my life back and a Job. Too feed my family ! Not the public feeding trough hand outs. I want to pry , go to vespers , meet with people and family , I want a life back . If we have another season shut down what will be the condition of the country , how will it support it’s people ?
