Flights to Santorini without stopping in ATH

Jump to last reply

I am looking at flights to Santorini for Sept 2013. There seems to be two roughly different ways to book this segment from the US.

1. Book all the way to Santorini using major carriers. All of which seem to require a change in ATH to Aegean for the Athens-Santorini segment.

2. Book a transatlantic flight only to Germany and use of a German airline, Air Berlin, Condor, etc, having high season direct flights to Santorini from Germany. Being on separate reservations, leave enough time margin to deal with transatlantic flight snafus.

Is there a gotcha with the German direct flight option? I plan to extend the time in Germany to several days to use the buffer between the two reservations to visit a few more places in Germany.
