OA trouble

Today I was supposed to be flying to Cyprus for a business meeting. My flight was to leave at 06.50 and my meeting was at 10.00 - Plenty of time. Well nope. One should flight to a destination that is only an hour and a half at least a day before to make sure that Olympic will keep the schedule and not divert the passenger via Rome! Yes, you read well. The 06.50 (aka the FIRST FLIGHT OUT) was cancelled and the only consolation that olympic offered to half awaken but shocked passengers was a flight to Larnaka via Rome!!!!! No kidding. Or else there was the flight the next day.
I must say that I have appreciated Aegean Airlines' employee professionalism and politeness that booked me immediatel a flight for 2pm. Of course I did not attend the meeting - my colleagues that flew the night before did. The good thing is that I did not present in that one, so not much harm done. But still. How can the first flight out be cancelled with no contingency plan is one of the worst experiences I've had with any airline. So far I have been an Olympic fan. Not anymore. The worst? You don't need a wild guess. Alitalia in Sicily..

an Olympic fan? That must have been a very small club to be in. Even smaller than the AEK fan club. Ha, ha.
