30 minute holding pattern need wifi

This sunny Greek isle had an air traffic problem the other day.

Sleeping-in is not a career enhancing habit especially for air traffic controllers. This happened on the isle of Lesbos from which of course the word lesbian is derived.

I found this other fact about Lesbos that may explain this sleepy controller.

From wikipedia
Modern ouzo distillation largely took off in the 19th century following Greek independence, with much production centered on the island of Lesbos, which claims to be the originator of the drink and remains a major producer.
Ouzo is a very strong liquor. Little too much and your alarm clock will not work.

BTW - being in a holding pattern for 30 minutes makes on-board wi-fi and internet connectivity very appealing.

Here's more from the Telegraph (UK).
