Will it sit in Athens or will it go in to service in disguise?

I see TK are getting their A321NEOs into service in 48 hours after delivery these days which is pretty fast. Then they do have grounded 7M8s to make up for.
TK have its own crews already prepared and qualified for the new type, but hence this is its first A320neo most probably Aegean will run a few traning (empty) flights with the aircraft until will enter in service.

There is no need for training flights. There is no difference (except of the engines) with the other a320s. The only reason it will not fly is because they wait the second a320neo (which will arrive mid January) to unveil the company logo etc.

Why would they need 2 airplanes to unveil the new logo?

They maybe doing some night time test flights but most likely the covering will remain in place.

This reminds me of Sabena, especially the top half of the tail. Which brought me back old memories of the time I was flying them to Brussels...

Could someone more mech-savvy than me enlighten me as to why they would have the most fuel-efficient aircraft in their fleet operate some of their shortest flights?

Moreover I thought OA were doing only their domestic routes...

The LCA sectors are probably just fill ins, the services to London are some of the longest A3 operate throughout the year.

I've just seen this interesting report:

https://airlinerwatch.com/aegean-air...eo-next-month/

It states that the A20N will have a total of 166 seats which is lower than the 180 which now seems to be standard - although both LH and BA are having issues with the density and weight distribution.

It breaks it down further and states there will be 12 business class seats and 154 in economy. I wonder if we're going to see a properly differentiated business class product? The other info in the article has been well recorded elsewhere but I haven't seen anything about seating yet.
