The only other LoCo that I know of that flies out of Athens is Virgin Express, but whatever their cost is, you'll end up in Brussels and then have to take either a puddle jumper or the train to London - it'll end up costing more.

The best I could find was US$184 on Olympic Airlines, which is a tiny bit less than the 184e, I guess.

Faith,

Check out German Wings. I found two flights (no direct ones unfortunately) on the 16th as follows:

Athens to Cologne (89 Euro), Departing 11:20 arriving at 13:20, then
Cologne to London Gatwick (46 Euro), Departing 18:20 arriving at 18:40

That'll mean a bit of a wait at Cologne airport but at least its a bit cheaper than the 184 Euros

Hope this helps,

cliffo
