Re: Chania airport's new look

I can testify from my recent visit that as of last Tuesday the toilets remain totally unimproved; and the bizarre special Chania carry-your-own-suitcase-to-the-scanner-and dont-expect-us-to-lift-your-bag-onto-the- belt-for-you system is still in place.

Re: Rescue operation for Norwegian tourist in Askifou
