AHEPA Welcomes New Emirates Year-round Daily U.S.
Route to Athens, Greece
AHEPA welcomes the launch of a new year-round, non-stop
daily service from the United States to Greece offered by
Emirates Airlines. The new Dubai-Athens-Newark service
began March 12. Supreme President Andrew C. Zachariades
was on-hand in Newark, N.J., with Emirates officials, joining Matthias Schmid, vice president of Sales, Emirates; Joel
Goldowsky, regional sales director Eastern USA for Emirates;
and Consul General of Greece Konstantinos Koutras, to mark
the launch of the new route.
"We applaud the launch of Emirates' new Dubai-AthensNewark service because it will enhance relations between
the United States and Greece, especially in the tourism and
commerce sectors," Zachariades said. "Of course, the new
route fills a tremendous void for consumers, especially Greek
Americans."
At the event, Supreme President Zachariades announced
he would take Emirates to depart for the annual AHEPA
Family Leadership Excursion, which took place in April.

Arby's Apologizes to AHEPA,
Removes TV Ad
Paul Brown, CEO, Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc., personally
apologized to Supreme President Andrew C. Zachariades in
an April 13 letter for any offense taken by AHEPA and the Greek
American community to the national restaurant chain's Gyros
"Mathematics" Ad. "We absolutely did not intend to offend anyone with the ad, but rather were trying to be funny knowing that
the contributions ancient Greeks have made to our modern civilization is undoubtedly immense," Brown wrote. "Regardless, we
have removed the commercial from our national rotation."
"We sincerely thank Mr. Brown for taking our concerns about
the ad into account and for removing it from its national rotation,"
Zachariades, who wrote to Brown on April 5, said. "We also thank
the community for its netroots activism on social media  that
shared our initial post, which Arby's clearly heard."  
In his April 5 letter, Zachariades contended the commercial
trivialized and demeaned the contributions of the ancient Greeks.
