  1. Oh Dear,
    Salaries are reduced and fares increased! Well, welcome to Greece. So much for trying to be competitive. Couldn’t the fares have stayed the same at least? Will we ever learn? I did hear once that the vast majority of the fares went for the special pensions of the seamen-do not know how true that is. but certainly wouldn’t surprise me.

    Not that I agree with this 6 percent hike. I think it is shooting into their own foot as even less people will travel. But it is the way a lot of Greek companies and private renters are reacting. And it is all part of the phenomenon called ‘stagflation’.
