I liked the comfort. Food was meh, so was service, and entertainment options for movies were unimpressive.
Very organized airline with friendly and professional air and land crew.
Very lethargic, lazy, rude process to check-in and board the plane. The staff is not well trained or has no care for customer service or any decency at all. First time flying Qatar airways after hearing so many good things about the airline, however the experience was awful!
Experience in IAD could have been lot better. IAD is one of the worst airport ik n terms of service. Chennai is also equally worst with too many bureacracies.
Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport.
Pros: "Crew friendly it's my son favorite"
Cons: "Seat selection and little needs comfortable for young kids with mothers"
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive. The seats were really confortable. I loved that the seat would completely flatten to make a « bed », wonderfully for sleeping!"
Cons: "The check in and boarding in Kathmandu was really not good. I requested wheelchair assistance when I booked, and was never offered a wheelchair nor any assistance for that matter ..."
Pros: "Seats are wider apart than usual, leaving comfortable space for legs in economy class. The crew is really attentive and nice"
Cons: "coffee is to strong and to many spicy foods"

Pros: "Everything- leg space, crew were great, relaxed atmosphere, great entertainment systems"
Cons: "Delayed flight for no apparent reason"
Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Dulles airport - yes, not directly related to the airline but Dulles is over capacity. Some should consider BWI - Baltimore Washington International that is little further but still a good airport."
Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."
Pros: "On time. No problems"
Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."
Pros: "Love the service of qattar"
Cons: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "Amazing airlines. Lots of food and snacks. Because of a long layover they even got us a hotel room for free!"
Cons: "Very strict luggage rules, even flying international we were only allowed a handbag on board, not our carryon"
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Zero customer service, absolute waste of money,. I should have read reviews before using your services"
Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food"
Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."
Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"
Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."
Cons: "The seats are quite uncomfortable and small. Really struggled to get comfortable."
Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Cons: "everything were so bad and the service was awful ,"
Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was top notch, and, in business class, served to order anytime. The seats were comfortable and the supplied noise cancelling headphones were great. Pillow, blanket and pajamas supplied were all nice quality. Restrooms kept spotless through a very long flight. Best business class I have experienced on any airline."
Cons: "The one glitch was the entertainment system, which froze several times and needed to be re-booted."
Pros: "Overall I would highly recommend it. Excellent service, good food, good on board entertainment. Flight attendants and crew in general very polite and very helpful. Despite our delay in arriving at the airport (check in was done online in advance), the flight attendants accepted us for the trip. The whole process was extremely efficient, there was no delay in take off time and the suitcases arrived all on time to our destination. I really appreciated their help: we did have a medical emergency 3 hours prior to our arrival to the airport, hence the delay.."
Cons: "Everything went smoothly, I had no bad experience with this flight.."
Pros: "Every thing likely"
Rued and unhelpful airport staff when asking for directions. Food is really bad.
The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!
Emirates was top class. Clean flights, rich ambience, helpful crew, good food. Entertainment was subpar. Seat cushion was not at its best. A lot of movement by Cabin Crew, causing continuous sleep interruptions (Aisle seat is not the best option).
Cons: "Overall experience turns exceptional great when crew is friendly, understandable & helpful. My overall experience on this flight from CAI-DXB on Emirates was great because of the wonderful crew, on top was their Supervisor/ Adel A.Hamid El-Hareth. On the contrary my decision after an experience with Emirates on board from DXB-LAX, was never to repeat it due to Crew Supervisor, she was British, she was there on board I guess to teach everybody disciplines with a tone !! Someone exceptional to meet once in life but it may bring you to a decision along with other factors not to fly again with Emirates to LAX. Thanks for your professional follow up Regards, Dr. Karim Ali"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."

Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Delayed departure, seats were not selected properly. We were 6 were the preferred seat for one of them was window. However, they selected seats in the middle till the last before window."
Cons: "Airport helpers at both airport are not dealing properly. Newark wheelchair employees were demanding for big money as tips. Why money is charged to use trolley to move luggage????"
Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Screen didn’t always work"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."

Cons: "Seat could have been more comfortable but the leg room was good"
Cons: "Swiss Air from Athens to Zurich stellar—excellent service, seating, food—but left one hour late due to air traffic. Nearly missed connecting Edelweiss flight—and that flight was just terrible. Passengers behind me constantly kicking, pulling my seat—wouldn’t allow me to put seat in recline position."
Cons: "Better entertainment for an 8 hour flight. Take under consideration that tall guys can’t be squeezed in for 8 hours.Give some space to people who really need it"
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Cons: "No entertainment. Food was bad."
Cons: "Don’t overbook trafficking of flights, I barely made my connection. My colleague missed this same flight last week and had to spend the night in Zürich. I hope this is not a trend because I will not fly Swiss anymore, as I can not have lost evenings due to flight delays."

Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "they did not put our special meal request for the 1st leg of our journey .. it was only 2.5 hours flight.. so its okay,.. but generally not a good thing...experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."
Pros: "General attitude of staff"
Cons: "Seats and handling of luggage"
Cons: "space at my feet"
Pros: "Flight itself was good for a shorter international flight. Dim cabin lights for early morning, crew providing plenty of drinks and snacks."
Cons: "For international travel, I’m always told to get there 3 hours before. For this trip we checked in but didn’t have access to a printer so needed a boarding pass. We wanted to carry on luggage so just needed to print the pass. Swiss was the only airline that wasn’t available on the check-in kiosks. The front desk staff didn’t arrive until closer to 1.5 hours before check in so nearly theall passengers were in a huge line to get passes and check bags."
Pros: "Service was great with staff being very professional Flights were on time and entertainment selections were good."
Pros: "Very friendly and excellent service. It was my first experience flying with Swiss. Will definitely fly with them again. Brest airline I've taken to Europe. This airline should be called tthe friendly skies of Europe. They are outstanding."

Cons: "The quality of the flight is cheap"
Pros: "Once staff arrived all went well."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for about 1pm and we arrived with another connecting flight to the Athens airport at 8am as that was our only choice. No staff arrived until 11am to check people in and take baggage. We were flying business and would have liked to check in earlier and make our way through security to the business lounge but could not and had to wait for three hours. It would have been nice to have one person on duty."
Pros: "Food was excellent and staff was friendy."
Cons: "Wifi was expensive."
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "No outlet for charging electronics. No free checked luggage. My carry on (of usual size) was deemed a bit too big so I was forced to check it in."
Cons: "Customer services fly attendece great services"
Pros: "I got ill on my flight to Zurich and the Swiss Flight Attendants attended to me like true professionals. They made sure I was comfortable until we landed which meant the world to me considering I was SO far away from my home. I'd like to especially acknowledge Frank, one of the attendants, who sat next to me to make sure I did not feel alone while I was sitting in the back with ice on my head, and felt like the world was spinning. He was my point of trust and warmth. That was not only extraordinary service, but human compassion at it's finest. Furthermore, the head attendant, who's name I could not get in the haze of the flight, escorted me from the plane to the cart who took me to the lounge to recover until my next flight. Thank you, Swiss Airlines, for having employees who knew how to triage my illness, and took care of me like family would. I appreciate it greatly and will surely be booking all my future European flights on Swiss. Please extend my gratitude to the flight crew on my Athens - Zurich flight on 5/28."
Pros: "the entertainment selection was above an beyond."
Cons: "The food was really not great. The meals were tiny and low quality. I understand there are restrictions when on an aircraft, but the meals were the size of snacks and not understanding of allergies at all. (Ie, cheese was on everything.)"

Pros: "Decent food, for airline food. I was not expecting anythoing for the 3 hour flight,. Included beer/wine/spirits helps a lot."

Pros: "Service, food was excellent. They went above and beyond."
Cons: "Hard to say.. Comfort of economy section."
Cons: "No me gusto . porque quando compre las pasajes con ustedes por la pagina me decia q estaba incluydo 1 maleta de 23 kg y otra de mano 8 kg. por el precio total pagado y cuando llegue ñas mañetas no estavam incluydas y tuve que pagalas. Yo ley las condiciones de mi pasaje y me daba exactamente esto que tenia derecho a las maletas. Grande falla de ustedes. ya no comprare mas con su compania K"
Cons: "I missed a collecting flight due to weather and the airline refused to rebook my flight."
They allow passengers to sleep for couple of hours before starting food service. I think that is very thoughtful. Good seat comfort, pitch. Good IFE.
Short layover would have been better.
I liked the service, the food, the gifts, the children were very happy..a lot of money. it would be nice to have the children in one sector of the plane
Everything was outstanding
Pros: "Flying Business with them couldn’t have been better. The 10 hours flight didn’t feel that long thanks to the first class service"

Pros: "Kaptan Pilot and crew we’re excellent"

Pros: "Organized overall"
Cons: "Cabin way too cold"
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "This flight was great. It was a short flight but food was still served. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding was late and no announcement came from anyone."
Pros: "Thr A330 has 32" pitch which was ok. The 2-4-2 seating made this less of an issue. Food was ok. Screens are decent and responsive."
Cons: "It's 32" for a 10 hour flight. Not really comfortable and enjoyable, and a squeeze throughout."
Pros: "The service, the food. The staff is very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Good entertainment."

Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Planes are very clean, food is excellent, there is plenty of alcohol, and the crew treats economy passengers as if they were royalty. Flying attendants clean toilette each hour, There is also a flower pasted on the mirror in the toilette. All details of the flight have been take care of."
Cons: "1) The safety record is not superb https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Airlines#Incidents_and_accidents 2) Political situation in Turkey is unstable. 3) Most of Europe is west of Istanbul - the flights to Europe are longer. BUT ANYWAY: THE AIRLINES ARE WORKING HARD TO OVERCOME ALL OBSTACLES AND PRICES ARE GREAT."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is better than all airlines I have used."
Cons: "The entertainment system could be more user friendly. Navigating the movies could be better. I'm not complaining, however. All in all, Tk is very good."
Pros: "The food, when you get what you ask for, isn't bad"

Pros: "I was upgraded to buisnes class :)"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable with a foot rest, stuff went out of their way to help. I fell asleep and miss the dinner, when I woke up I was hungry and they went out of their way and fed me. Compare to most of us airline plus British Airlines that even sells the earphones and pillows, THY had everything free. It is a first class treatment for economy."
Pros: "Staff was very good"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Pleasant staff and good food and great movie selection"
Cons: "A330 is a flying sardine can."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Cons: "It wasn't communicated beforehand to check in our baggage to electronics."
Pros: "Over all Turkish airlines is a class airlines"
Cons: "can't think of anything I didn't like about my flight"
Pros: "The service was great, no one had any attitude on the plane,but the airports were different"
Cons: "The airport service was horrible, they rerouted us made us wait in Charlotte for 2 extra hours and there were half kids on board, a baby was crying every hour and my earplugs didn't mask the noise enough, I swear I thought two mom's were going to fight."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't give food 5 stars though, because compared to my previous experience, quality is less than usual. I always fly on Turkish airlines and I like it overall. Security at Istanbul airport is great. Better than anywhere else."
Cons: "Quality of food is less than the previous experience"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. Lost connecting flight. 1 day stuck in Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Friendly, polite and very helpful staff. Clean aircraft.on time best customer service."

Pros: "I Like the food and movies"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "everything was good and don rhith"
Pros: "There wasn't anything particularly special about this flight to make it stand out from other airlines. It was just a short 2 hour flight and had everything you needed."
Cons: "At check in, the agent said she had put me in the exit row, but I was actually just behind it."
Pros: "Good food great passenger service."
Cons: "Having to take a bus to plane"
Pros: "The food with Turkisj airlines is always amazing. Service is great. Cleanliness always kept up through the flight"
Pros: "Food and drinks!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was great"
Cons: "There is no free beverage service, let alone snacks or meals. Some tickets do not allow you to pre-book a meal and there is no way to buy a hot meal even in a 12-hour flight.leg room is a bit small and carry on restrictions are getting lower all the time."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The kosher food"
Pros: "Crew was amazing—efficient and kind. Loved the seat space"
Cons: "Nothing. All good"
Pros: "The best landing of a commercial aircraft I have ever experienced in my 74 years and in half a century of flying across the globe, took place in arriving at the Madrid airport with this Aegean Airlines flight. I had to ask the airline hostesses the names of the pilot, and they were two pilots flying"
Pros: "Good on business class was amazing and the staff was always ready to help with any questions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice and because of that the airplane was not as clean as it should of been"
Pros: "Ground crew and cabin crew were very helpful and efficient"
Pros: "I did not make this connection due to delayed first flight and the most poorly organized and staffed airport!!!"
Cons: "Getting reimbursed!"
Pros: "Aegean is a fine airline overall"
Cons: "I had a carry-on bag, no problem on the flight from Madrid to Athens; but on the return trip they weighed the bags of some passengers, and when mine was over the limit -- which, however, was not indicated in the baggage restrictions -- they charged me 60 euros and I had to check it right there."
Pros: "The crew was nice, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There wasn't an autobus ready to take us from the main terminal in Athens to the plane on the runway."
Cons: "Boarding could have been handled a bit better. We were told our suitcases could not be carried on as they were too big, but we saw other passengers with luggage just as big but they got to carry it on. They didn't charge us for checking the bag which made the issue less irritating."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite"
Cons: "Apparently Aegean has stopped offering candy before take off. That's a pity as this was a nice (and presumably low cost) way of differentiating from other Star Alliance airlines. Food was mediocre and there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Seats and the leg room"
Cons: "Vegetarian food"
Pros: "The food, crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "Didn't have any entertainment"
Cons: "Again the airport. Its not the airlines fault, but to have ONe set of toilets in a whole airport wing is unacceptable."
Cons: "I'm a photographer on a 3 week trip. I have luggage. Unless you take the ferry, there are limited airline options to Cyclades. Aegean really doesn't want you if you have luggage. Felt like I was being scolded. True, I'm trying to be frugal and avoid a big investment in shock-proof luggage and/or checked baggage fees, but as long as it fits under my seat, what's the big deal? I'm sure I easily weigh at least 70 pounds less than the person sitting next to me, so the extra 4 kg in a backpack that I (female) can personally carry shouldn't be an issue. Then, there's no jetway. You leave the gate to board a bus that takes you to a plane on the tarmac where you must climb a rather large flight of metal stairs. Reverse direction, It takes quite some time and a few crew members to assist those with disabilities to deplane. All the time the rest of the passengers are waiting in the bus to get to their connections. Would only ever fly this airline again if it was the only option to get where I want to go."
Cons: "I arrived just before the hour an hour before departure for a 6am flight, which is in line with their 60 minute policy to find the counter closed. I spent another 25 minutes running around the airport trying to find someone to assist including a ticket agent to adjust my flight. Only to be told I couldn't get a flight out until the next day and I had to pay more for my original ticket for it. I contacted customer service and their response was a simple copy and paste of the rules which I was well aware of (apparently I should have really been there 90 mins before and not 60 according to the site). I only booked with the airline because it offered an 8 hour layover in Athens...a chance to see a bonus city. There are plenty of other airlines with more flexible and consistent policies. I have traveled the world on many airlines and have never had an early check in counter close or to have to chase down a representative to get service."
Pros: "The employees were very helpful and friendly. Food was not worse than what one can expect of an airline (about as “good” as a US airline’s, which is not a high standard to beat). The plane seemed recent and clean."
Cons: "The major problem was the lack of detail on their luggage policy. I am sure they can show the text clearly warning me about the fees for bringing a piece of luggage per person, but I missed it. Therefore, they charged me $35 per person for their registered bag. That’s probably how they “beat” their competitors’ prices. If you include the fees in your calculation, this might still be a good option, but make sure that you read the fine print, or be prepared to pay as “extra” what many airlines offer as basic."
Pros: "This flight was great."
Pros: "Accurate times"
Cons: "Night travelling"
Pros: "No surprises. Routine flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The changes in gates"
Pros: "We were given a meal"
Cons: "The meal wasn't very good"
Cons: "I did not understand flight attendants in english because of their bad pronunciation and I did not know what their saying all flight."
Cons: "I had round trip flight with Aegean airline from Santorini to Athen and Athen to Santorini, Both flights had DELAYED FOR ONE HOUR!!! My gateleg table was broken on Athen to Santorini flight so I ate my lunch in a hard way!!!!! On the way back after one delayed finally we arrived at Athen airport and I had two more flight to caught. when I got my luggage do the next flight I realized literally my luggage was destroyed!!!!"
Cons: "Procedures for handling sick elderly passenger. One crew member should take initiative and deal with sick person and handle calling for a doctor on board ."
Pros: "Very bad"
Cons: "All the team"
Pros: "Friendly staff, clean airplane"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I love airlines where you can drink wine with your food."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Clean, smooth, on time"
Cons: "Food was not interesting"
Cons: "They charge me on my two flight about 100 euros for my bags that's the worst , never had that and this is my first and last time I used them"
Pros: "Quick smooth and efficient with two exits at landing."
Cons: "I hated that I and 10 ither passengers were told to RUN! i had left London, so my attite was heavy, and here i am running through the airport. It was exhausting. Why should we have to run when the intial connection was 45 mins. Because one plane with the SAME airline is running late and gives us 6 minute's to get to the gate, that should not be any fault of the passengers. Radio the other flight and have them hold. I got an email that the gate changed TWICE. the airline employee did not get that memo at all. So we were raced to the wrong gate even AFTER, I mentioned the gate change. A real frustrating experience all together."
Pros: "Great service nice food comfortable flight"
Cons: "Nothing :))"
Pros: "The flight was great. The staff was nice. Everything was great!"
Cons: "I didn't realize that we could of brought on our bags for free."
Cons: "The staff in Athens airport, at the ticket desks, were disinterested, and actually rude. Bad impression."
Pros: "I was surprised about the food, it was exellent."
Cons: "The ticket didnt specify the type of economy class so we had to pay for extra baggage"
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendly and gorgeous!! And short flights!!"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little unorganized."
Pros: "Nothing!!! I wait for 21 hours in the airport for a 45 minutes flight!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "We lost a day and all the expenses such as tours, hotels, etc. that we payed before and nothing was covered by the airline, we were just offered to get our money back from the flight but they never gave us a solution. Some of the people in AEGEAN airlines were extremely rude and had no empathy for us, it was an awful day!!! because we had no sleep cause we where there at 2 am in the morning cause the flight was at 5:15 and we did that because we wanted to be for the whole day in santorini so you can imagine how frustrating and upset we were, they just gave us a snak for 6.50 Euro and 10 hours later We literalaly had to figth for our Food, We will apriciate if youu can do something about it or get us a refound, we where 3 people: ana Marrufo, Estefani Escoffie and pamela Ramayo"
