Sky Express Baggage Allowance

My intended carry on bag is 5cm height more than the maximum allowed. the width and depth are ok.

Do you think that they will let me off or will I have to check the bag into the hold?

I am guessing their aircraft are smaller so have to reduce the size allowed.

Re: Highway Roadworks near Aptera

Sometimes it needs police intervention to keep the flow going. I think you are right. Its going to take some time to fix the road. Its a sheer drop and needs a lot of foundation to build it back up to road level. It could take months. Am sure they are giving it their priority considering the tourist...

Highway Roadworks near Aptera

Anyone know if the temporary lights are still on the highway and long tail backs.

I am going to the airport on Weds and wondered if I should leave any earlier than I normally do.

Cheers

Re: Parking at Chania airport

I download the cityzen app for smart phones. If you book up through the app there is a small discount. plus its convenient to use because as you drive up to the barrier in the airport, the anpr recognises the license plate and sees that you have already paid and the barrier goes up. easy and simple ...

Re: rent or buy?

I agree Kathleen. Social life here is much better than in Crete. I have more friends here than I do in the UK as well.

I merely posted my opinions on the fees. I didnt quite expect to get my head ripped off with silly replies from people.

I hope it all works out for you Kathleen

rent or buy?

I will never buy a house again in Crete. I own one now but due to the hidden costs when you sell and if you happn to have a mortgage and pay it off. Lots of hidden costs involved which can run into the 1000s When I come to sell my house, I will just rent because it is easier and less cost. It seems ...

Re: OTE charger 8 eurors to send a text

Yes, I have data on, but my topup included 500mb of data and there is no way I would have used that much data in 2 days. Everywhere I go there is wifi so the phone wouldnt have been using much. I will go to Germanos tomorrow in Souda and ask the question and see what deal they can do me for contract...

Re: Legalising a property

so the reason for legalising a property was because the system was, and still is to a point, very corrupt. It does need tightening up for sure but sadly it falls with the house owner and there is probably no comeback on the notary, lawyer or developer, particularly after some builders/developers hav...
