Aegean Airlines La Traviata On Board

I’ve flown Aegean Airlines before, but I wasn’t aboard this flight on May 28 when Tenor Dimitris Paksoglou and soprano Eleni Kelesidis got out of their seats and started singing La Traviata.

I think I’d have more of a reaction than the people aboard, who seem about as cool as cucumbers, and took it all in stride. I’ve been on a lot of planes, but not one while it served live opera, or made a couple of singers from the Greece’s National Opera troupe sing for their supper. I wonder if they took requests? Wednesday was the 15 year anniversary of AEGEAN Airlines. I think at the very least I’d have requested “Happy birthday”.

I have flown that airlines to Athens. I’ve never been serenaded on it (yet), but it’s a good airline.

Opa!
