Is RAK now the furthest destination? Not bad for award miles in the economy buckets.

I believe so. Up to these starting, the longest flight was ATH-LIS (which I did last week funnily enough).

RAK 1858 new
CMN 1790 new
LIS 1784
DUB 1781
EDI 1765
OPO 1732

The other one to come even close to 1700 miles would be HER-ARN 1697.

The AMS increase from 7 to 10 weekly seems to be not so sure. I noticed that the extra flights they had put on the schedule (Tue, Fri, Sun) are now no longer bookable (Though they do show up in the search results). That would be a shame. Wonder if it's related to the slot crisis at Amsterdam...

The RAK-ATH-LHR looks quite good for those looking to earn some cheap miles (2,515 miles to be precise)....can even be 'Flex-ed up' for 71.79 EUR during the current 30% 'flights through Greece' sale!

S class for 87.79 EUR (3,353 miles) on some days.

No, "this" is not at all related to the release of the W19/20 schedule. But no worries, A3 will do so in a few weeks, late as always!

I would say that the W19/20 schedule won’t be uploaded prior to the forthcoming April.

Does anyone of the Aegean experts here have any idea what these "non-Greece" A3 flights are all about?

https://www.flightera.net/flight/Aegean+Airlines/A34823

Some kind of unofficial positioning flights? I don't see these in the Aegean booking engine.

Maybe there are more flights like these that I just haven't noticed yet?

They look like typical holiday charter flights of the type that European airlines operate on behalf of package operators all over Europe.

A3 operate charters between Dubrovnik and loads of European airports; the aircraft (SX-DVS) that last performed your noted Copenhagen-Dubrovnik flight has been bouncing back and forth from Dubrovnik to points all around Europe for the last few days

Thank you! Since these are not open for booking from the Aegean site, I guess they neither give segments nor miles?
