A Greek man who narrowly missed the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed Sunday said he had argued with ground staff in Addis Ababa to try to get on the plane after reaching the gate minutes too late.

“I saw the last passengers going through, but the gate had already closed. I complained, in the usual way when that kind of thing happens. But they were very kind and placed me on another flight,” Antonis Mavropoulos told Greece’s private Skai Television, speaking via Skype from Nairobi

Mavropoulos, who runs a recycling company and lives in Athens, was traveling to Kenya to attend an environmental conference and changed planes in Addis Ababa.

“I’m slowly coming to terms with what happened and how close it came. On the other hand, I’m also very upset, I’m shattered for those who were lost,” he said in the interview yesterday. “To be honest, I didn’t get much sleep last night.”

Mavropoulos put his survival down to luck.

“I didn’t check my suitcase, because I knew the gap between connecting flights was tight. If I had checked the bag in, they would have waited for me,” he said.“This is a very difficult moment, one that can change your life.”
