Be aware, after June 15 Greece is still mandating "Passengers from all other countries will have to continue getting tested, staying overnight at specific hotels, and quarantining for either seven or 14 days" despite the airport being open for flights. Best wait for the situation to settle if you start from NA.

That only applies until June 15th.
​​​​​​
Here is the quote direct from the article you posted.

*Starting July 1, all Greek airports that can handle international traffic will reopen to flights from abroad. At that time, random screening for the virus will apply to all arriving passengers unless public health considerations dictate stricter testing, a tourism ministry official said.*

Things very well may change, but at the moment, this is what has been announced.

Signature Lounges are closed right? And reduced/minimal services for the foreseeable future.

Currently, that is correct - no firm decision on when they open AFAIK, but the dates I was looking at and posted were in December. I am hopeful they will be functional with appropriate precautions by then.

LX isn't bad, I'd take them over AF.

And thanks for posting the fare! I just booked on miles yesterday for September (LX RT from SFO).

Also, the ST/OW fares now available from SFO.

Never tried AF or KLM international J, so figured it was a decent opportunity. Is LX J substantially better than AF? Since AF is no longer flying the A380, the 777 J product looks pretty nice.

Tried both, and would prefer AF J. With that said, both were great!

AF has the more comfortable seat, but the 772s are pretty tired. LX keeps its cabins in much better shape. ZRH every day over CDG for the transfer. Nothing wrong with trying AF/KL and deciding for yourself.
