I haven't been on Cruise Critic for quite awhile and didn't know this specific forum existed. I'm hoping that someone has flown Chicago to Athens with different airlines and can say which one has better service. Thank you FlyerTalker but I'm afraid I don't now what PE stands for. Also thank you rkacruiser for checking on fares - that is something I've been doing. I just haven't found any reviews lately - for any Airline - including Emirates - that has positive experiences. Even though our cruise - I am taking my family - isn't until late May, 2022 - with all of these COVID variants I'm wondering if it will even be practical then.
