Why are they going to Greece?  To avoid landing in Israel on shabbos?

They were diverted for a medical reason

Why Athens? How many Kosher/Shabbos options do they have there? Why not a bigger community....

Why go on a flight that lands so close to shabbos in the first place?

Did they make it to a hotel before Shabbos?
