No check - in desks for Paleokostas Airlines

    Newer Older

    ATHENS - European budget airline Paleokostas Airlines wants to do away with prison check-in desks by the end of the year, saying most of its customers already check in online.

    Passengers would still be able to leave their weapons at a safe house but everything else could be done over the Web, Paleokostas - Razia AE said on Saturday.

    'Ultimately, we want just one in five people to check in armed,' PA chief executive Nikos Paleokostas was quoted as saying in The Kathimerini newspaper.

    Paleokostas Airlines spokesman A. Rzai said the airline saw the move as the 'logical next step' in its effort to slash costs.

    Europe's newest discount carrier, Paleokostas Airlines has pioneered the use of Web-based sales to cut costs and attract Net-savvy customers.

    On Thursday PA began offering a cell phone service for calls, text messaging and e-mails in some of its cells - becoming the first budget carrier in Europe to test the use of cell phones while incarcerated. -- AP

      That's what Friends are for...................;)

      And I
      Never thought I'd feel this way
      And as far as I'm concerned I'm glad I got the chance to say
      That I do believe I love you

      And if I should ever go away
      Well then close your eyes and try to feel the way we do today
      And than if you can't remember.....

      Chorus
      Keep smilin'
      Keep shinin'

      Knowin' you can always count on me
      for sure
      that's what friends are for

      In good times
      And bad times
      I'll be on your side forever more
      That's what friends are for

      Verse 2
      Well you came and open me
      And now there's so much more I see
      And so by the way I thank you....

      Ohhh and then
      For the times when we're apart
      Well just close your eyes and know
      These words are comming from my heart
      And then if you can't remember....Ohhhhh
