Good value for money. Small snack and free drinks. And most important: on time!
Pros: "Price is good"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The kosher food"
Cons: "there was a problem with special assistance on the connection flight. Nobody was waiting at the end..."
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: "The food was good and so was the price of the airline ticket."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. There was no organization as to the line."
Pros: "I was seated next to my fiancé. We were separated on Blue air."
Cons: "We had a delayed flight from Mykonos to Athens and the airflight company did nothing to help us."
Pros: "Ground crew and cabin crew were very helpful and efficient"
Cons: "Food, not in time."
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: "Efficient. It was a very short flight."
Cons: "Offer of Wi-Fi."
Pros: "Seats and the leg room"
Cons: "Vegetarian food"
Pros: "Comfortable airplane, organized crew and fast boarding operation"
Cons: "I asked for a vegan meal when I ordered a ticket and did not get one. I needed to ask and explain myself and it was not so nice. At the end I got it, thanks to the attendant"
Pros: "Plan crew , pilots , services on plan and cleaning"
Cons: "Land crew , airport , and airline disorganized I wanted to complain about crew member , But she will not give her name or ID number, And when I snap a picture she calls the police , Her bag was inside her shirt and she will not revile"
Pros: "The flight attendant was welcoming at the door and the service was done efficiently."
Cons: "The tv monitor at the airport never bother to inform the passengers which was the boarding gate. After asking other passengers we deducted the gate number. The boarding was like a cattle drive bordering on a stampede since Aegean Airlines didn’t bother to divide passengers by groups, so people rushed to be first in line. We waited standing with our carryons for over 45minutes. Nobody knew what was happening or when they will start boarding. Naturally, when we finally got on board people where blocking the aisle because Aegean didn’t bother to board from back to front as it is usually done. The flight attendants were sweet but their English was almost unintelligible. My brother works and I worked for major airlines and have never seen anything so disorganized and unprofessional."
Pros: "Everything was on-time, easy, and fairly quick."
Cons: "The legroom."
Cons: "We have a delay. Alrhoght we order kosher food- we werent in the list- so there was no food for us. At the end one of the passagers didnt wanted to eat so they gave us his portion. Was cold and the feeling of been forget is bad. Specially when you are traveling with a 2y old. That is hungry abd tired. Very disapointed."
Pros: "- Crew service was pleasant"
Cons: "- Misinformed about luggage included in the ticket, had to pay extra money. - Flights delays"
Pros: "I appreciated that they didn't charge me to check in my carry on bag."
Cons: "It is sad that they could not add this flight on to my Star Alliance without my card."
Pros: "Although they were at the right size snd weight. I was skipped dinner."
Cons: "Disembarkation via buses. Not great."
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: ".usually I like this company."
Cons: "There was 50% of the flight with a feeling that the is no air. It was suffocating."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom. Professional crew. They offered food on a relatively short flight. Very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "Evrything was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on that flightes"
Pros: "Everything was fine, even above expected for low cost airline. Nice crew, free drinks."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better."
Pros: "No surprises. Routine flight."
Pros: "on time, they were aware that we came from a connection and took care of everything. pleasant flight."
Pros: "I love flying Aegan - it is always comfortable and pleasant. Due to my own mistake I didn't order a kosher/vegetarian meal, which is why I rated the food "N/A". On flights this short there are no entertainment options which is fine I suppose :) overall, this is one of my favorite airlines to fly! Thanks!"
Cons: "too many fussy babies crying and screaming."
Cons: "As something that seems to happen pretty much constantly with Aegean... the plane arrived late and was delayed... which also in turn caused me to miss my scheduled bus to Jerusalem... but... what can you do... not everything is in our control unfortunately... I hope one day that the airline will organise itself and get things running a bit more smoothly.... Also... there was a meal on the flight but not option was given to those who are vegetarians to request a special meal at time of booking or later on while managing the booking... this was a bit unfair in my mind that my only option was a pasta and meat sauce meal so I did not get to eat... also... within my Star Alliance menber account I am listed as a vegetarian meal... so it should have been automatic just as it is on Swiss, Lufthansa, Etc... when I fly with them."
Cons: "about 50 minutes late"
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."
Pros: "I liked that I was going to Israel – I didn't like being an hour and a half late losing my luggage and not knowing when I'm going to receive it"
Cons: "Lost my luggage – plain one and a half hours late"
Cons: "Delay 1 hour and 20 minutes at departure"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "They should work on their airport staff a little."
Cons: "it has nothing to do with aegean air but security at the flight was poor - we found out that by mistake my friend left a knife in his hand bag and it was not found untill we unpacked and saw it at home!!!"
Pros: "On time. Space. Great team."
Pros: "Clean, smooth, on time"
Cons: "Food was not interesting"
Pros: "Checkin and boarding was fast. Short flight; only one and a half hours."
Cons: "Food was minimal."
Pros: "crew was supportive. food was ok. Check in on line was good. We could choose our seats. We flew with Aegean several times already. they are a reliable company."
Cons: "The flight was late by almost an hour. On arrival we were transferred to the terminal by buses after having to carry our troll all the way down the stairs."
Cons: "a little more leg room"
Cons: "meets expectations"
Cons: "Boarding process was not nice. Secondary check up is fine but explanation would be helpful and communication from airport crew was awful."
Pros: "Great crew. Great food."
Cons: "Seats were ok, could be better."
Pros: "777 & entertainment"
Pros: "The application for entertainment was good"
Cons: "Everything got delayed in an hour and a half, due to intense traffic. This is irresponsible, such things should be planned and taken into account!"
Pros: "Great crew! Nice new plane"
Cons: "Paid for baggage on the website but website didnt work and was forced to pay full price in person at airport. Frustrating!"
Pros: "The security and fast boarding"
Cons: "The meal"
Pros: "The service was good, the food wasn't bad at all. They were able to accommodate my food preference, though I hadn't requested a vegetarian meal. The rest of the flight was pretty bad. The flight boarded and left one hour late. No communication from ground crew about that. Boarding was a madhouse."
Cons: "There were like 3 movies/shows to watch on a seat screen that you couldn't control anything. So outdated and old. If I had known, I would have made alternate arrangements. Seats were so small and uncomfortable. No width space and no frontal space when person in front reclined their seat. Horrible."
Cons: "Hi I ordered a flight at the Kayak site with a suitcase. And when I got to the talk they told me you had to pay for the $ 70 suitcase. When I bought the flight ticket on the site I paid for a suitcase but at the desk they did not see it and I bought to pay again"
Pros: "pleasant seats, friendly staff"
Cons: "security checking in airport"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the plain was great, the food was tasty."
Pros: "Service was friendly"
Cons: "The LY security check took longer than usual and could be better organized. I waited 25 minutes in the line for online check in and then another 15 in the other. Why can’t people go directly from the online check in station to the screening and boarding area?"
Cons: "Food and entertainment"
Pros: "The chicken sandwich was good"
Cons: "More spacious seats, better arange the airoplane with three lines of two seats ..."
Pros: "crew always gives a feeling of getting home price was good"
Cons: "seems like an old airplane (quite consistent with previous flights :( that might be the reason for taking off about 90 later? - overhead light did not work ("yes we already know about it") - entertainment set did not work properly - food is very mediocre and the same (i don't care that much about it if other things worked well.)"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, really good food, good service, great private entertainment with lots of options"
Cons: "There was chaos at boarding with seat assignments"
Pros: "Arrival on time, helpfull pleasent crew."
Cons: "No soft drink selection, water only."
Pros: "On time. Food reasonable. Seats a bit cramped"
Cons: "Very easy Eli. Good service. No children nr me!!"
Cons: "The online check in was very inconvenient, the site was slow, the reservation couldn't be found, the seats couldn't be chosen. On the inbound flight I managed to check in after numerous tries, on the outbound, couldn't check in at all. The flight was delayed for an hour while we were already in our seats. The staff was unorganized and inattentive."
Pros: "New plane with a great entertainment selection but I think the leg room is becoming less with each new plane. Musical seats —if you’ve flown ElAl before you know what I mean—was annoying. Flight crew seemed to disappear for a while. No response to the call button for over 5 minutes so I walked to the back of the plane where all flight crew seemed to be congregating to get a glass of water. When crew was around, they were very pleasant ."
Cons: "Everything.. Flight canceled, no explanation what so ever. In hk costume service they took my gift of bought from Auckland duty free since I needed to exit in hk because flight canceled. N"
Cons: "Lost my baggage lock and lost my shoes after searching through my bag"
Pros: "the crew is very nice"
Cons: "On this flight the seats are a bit narrower and closer together. It did not have the feel of the other fights we have taken in business class el al."
Pros: "The people the service best airline"
Pros: "The crew was great! Super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Almost 12 hour flight with 2 hour delay. Plane interior was outdated. Not one TV monitor worked, a total disgrace. Should have given bottled water to everyone while we had a two hour delay. Did get served fluids in 4 ounce cups no ice. Felt like I went on easy jet but had to pay $1300. No leg room, when the guy in front leaned back ,his chair was touching my knees and I am only 5'4."
Pros: "The confidence of the pilot and how he transmitted he will control the bumping due to bed weather"
Cons: "Small room leg between chairs - when the chair before me reclined back no place to breath ... The entertainment system was old and did not work well - when asking to see a film - you catch another one or the middle of it and the screen pixelised The taste of hot meal"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful"
Cons: "It is a night flight. There is no reason for the lights to be turned off only 4.5 hours after departure, and turned back on after 3.5 hours. It is really awful when you are traveling with kids."
Cons: "A day before I realized it was El Al Up (low cost) so I had to pay for 2 suitcase extra 200 $! And couldn't seat near my partner. The data was presented in a misleading manner which was very diaspointing ..."
Pros: "It was good short flight , smooth ride. Good food and drinks."
Cons: "Was no entertainment at the flight, maybe because was a short flight"
Pros: "Wifi on the plane. Great crew."
Pros: "Comfortable seat however it didn't recline as it was in front of emergency exit row"
Cons: "Above, plus my light was outso I couldn't read and I had brought books and work to do! Also my TV screen wasn't functionalso I also couldn't watch anything g AND my headset, only one earlier e worked!!"
Cons: "boarding in newark was chaotic, took forever and plane was delayed for an hour. Food was so so. Iam allergic and it seems there were lentils in the rice which i couldnt eat, also possibility of nuts in the pastry served. Nut allergies are quite widespread. It would be nice to have had the ingedients to the various foods. Stewardesses had attitudes if they were bothered in between meals. seats very cramped, had no room to move."
Cons: "Sitting seems intentionally bad (separating families) unless you pay extra Food is inedible Crew being sardonic of local latency when we all remember how ELAL crew used to sit idle on track to earn a couple more bucks"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable for my 6'3" frame."
Cons: "If you want entertainment, you need to download app before boarding plane"
Pros: "That it was a non stop flight."
Cons: "A. the airplane was the oldest airplane I've been on. The seats were so uncomfortable, I thought my butt would crack open after sitting on it for 10 hours. The TVs were worse qualities than what we had 50 years ago. There was minimal seat room for arms and legs. I'm not just bitchin, but I never paid that much for a flight, yet, it was the worst experience ever. (Just to give context, I've flown to Israel with Azerbaijan, Royal Jordanian, Air France and Turkish Airlines and ALL of them were exponentially more enjoyable). B. The flight attendants were literally the ruddest ones I've met. I clicked the help light on my seat like 5 times throughout the flight for water but they never came. I couldn't get up because an old woman was sitting next to me and she was sleeping. C. The flight was delayed which was a huge inconvenience for me because I bought this flight specifically because of its departure time. Overall, my advice is to stay away from this airline because it will probably be your worst flying experience ever"
Pros: "We got home finally"
Cons: "Delay Old planes No updates on delay No food on delayed flight"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight"
Cons: "Stupid song at the end and a delay on schedule"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for over an hour with no reasons or apologies given."
Cons: "Service was lousy"
Cons: "The security is ridiculous. They discriminate all non Jewish passengers and have no respect to people that live in Israel."
Pros: "Never flying with those amateurs again!"
Cons: "Too long security Very crowded"
Cons: "You don't offer food for vegan people!"
Cons: "The boarding time kept on delaying all the time."
Pros: "It was the first time that even for the cup of coffee you pay. The next step is obviously that you pay also the cup of water?"
Cons: "i am a guide arranging groups to Rome. I arrived 3 hours before the flight - as is required, to find an under-staffed security check . My group of 20 people , some of which were over 80 years old , had to stand 2 hours in line before they where approached. For those that collapsed there were only about 12 chairs in the entire space, for the multitudes that were coming for the flight. i will never fly El -Al to Rome with my groups again, and will not accept the claim that this is "the Ministry of Security" (as the security checkers claimed) , unless i receive an answer to assure that this is to be amended. i purchased tickets from ElAl - and they must provide better standards for and during their security issues."
Pros: "Nice comfortable temperature newspaper Pita and Humous"
Cons: "The service was rhe the worst part of the flight"
Check in extremely slow. Only one hour after regular check in was open, somebody came and opened the priority check in desk . The seats on this line Tel Aviv-warsaw -tel aviv are not reclinable at all . That’s weird and uncomfortable. The crew was nice .
the company doues not provide basic cofee and somthing to eat on a price that they ask for and also very difficult to communicate with the company except social apps
Flight got canceled after endless hours of delay and 3 hours sitting in the plane without water, food or any feeling of freedom. A horrible experience being stuck and locked down with chaos all around, people shouting and no information. Impotent organization, careless execution, just once step away from being hijacked.
flightcdelay ruined the expirence
Could not check on on line for 1 out of 3 passengers
I was not boarded because i was positive on my pcr test
The one thing I must say is that the flight wasn't full at all, and in this case, I'm really unsure why they wouldn't sit people farther from each other.
Pros: "It was enough fast"
Cons: "Too much money for nothing service."
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience overall, but what you pay is what you get."
Cons: "Pretty much everything..."
Pros: "It's the cheapest you can get"
Cons: "They split me and my wife on porpuse to force me to buy the option to choose my seating. The leg space is tiny and the chairs won't recline so it's super uncomfortable. Flight times are shitty. Te leave early in the morning so you can barely get some sleep at night. Nor on the plane. They don't any serve food or even water and let you dry up. You can buy overpriced food and beverage onboard. My purchase from the duty free was stolen and they didn't help me handle the problem. Awful experience."
Pros: "I was at the gate. Before the door to enter the airplane. The Hungarian crew wasn’t telling me that they are closing the gate or going to close it. They completely ignore me and let me stand there and at the end I see the door close in front of me, 2 meter from me and they told me I mised flight."
Cons: "I lost my money and I had to buy new flight with other company. Wizzair crew at budapest was very rude and didn’t take responsibility for the mistake they did. They could just say they are closing the door but nobody did. 2 meters from me and after I passed all security they ignored me completely."
Pros: "The cheap fares"
Cons: "Airplane was filthy, needed a thorough cleaning. More padding on the seat."
Pros: "The seat not so comfortable but good"
Cons: "Wiz air seems to trick you constantly to get more money out if things they hide from you.. online check-in required.. letting you in work a trolley and then charge you at the gate.. pee service overall.. beware!!"
Cons: "Comfort of the plane. So freaking uncomfortable. Seats didn’t even recline back."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Pros: "All and all great value for the money"
Cons: "1. The check in was delayed and very chaotic. 2. The landing was horrible 3. The plane was not comfortable ."
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "There was a problem with their website that was out of our control, that didn’t allow us to print boarding passes and we were charged at the airport even though we had proof we tried and were not able through no fault of our own"
Pros: "Late over two hours due to late arrival of the plane and even so they board us for nothing cauosng us to wait withot bathroom sitta etc."
Pros: "Good legroom and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The staff took ages boarding us because they were obsessed with trying to scalp people for exceeding baggage limits. Nothing free aboard, no entertainment, the seats were uncomfortable too."
Cons: "Had to stand in the sun for about 30 mins waiting to board. Had to buy a bottle of water for £2.5 why can’t they just pour a glass of water or even sell at a reasonable price."
Pros: "The Crew was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible, took a long time - few and not enough boarding and suitcases counters, which made people wait for a long time and even let others to pass them in line because their flight was earlier. due to this our flight was late by 45 minutes. the food was too expensive."
Pros: "On time boarding, departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Better than Ryanair."
Cons: "Seats were horrible. Narrow, no leg room and awfully uncomfortable. Worse than easyJet."
Pros: "Mobile app is very good, but just allow you to download boarding pass on PDF version right at the moment of the check in"
Cons: "They didn't let me flight. Even that I did the online check in 24 hours before they didn't send me the boarding pass on PDF format via email. Also there were no way to download it from the mobile app or the website. I was in the airport 2 hours before and they didn't want to print it for me even that I showed all the online check in confirmation. They requested that I pay €35 Euro for the airport print. I submitted a complain and hope to get a credit or refund. Confirmation code: L3QZWB"
Pros: "So many crying children"
Pros: "Quick to board, smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "On night flights woken up to serve drinks and given flying details from the pilot. Great in the day but would rather be left and not disturbed at night!"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
Cons: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"
Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"
Cons: "Hidden fees"
Pros: "Flight attendance service was great and smiley"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Actual in-air flying experience was smooth."
Cons: "Due to technical issue with plane, passengers were delayed about 15-20 minutes on the tarmac in a crowded, hot shuttle bus with ineffective air conditioning and almost no fresh air coming in."
Pros: "I will never take flight with this company again!!!!! The worst ever shame on you"
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "only good for short flights....the price.."
Cons: "not comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding and getting off the plane via bus"
Pros: "All handled professionally."
Cons: "we didn't get food at all. i purchased a cabin baggage for 40 dollar, and when i went to the check in i paid another 110 euro for checked in baggage although i had only one baggage!!!"
Pros: "The don't say the truth"
more than 1 hour delay for a technical problem found after boarding ended.
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "50euro check in fee was awesome"
Cons: "No boarding passes, flight delayed"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our suitcase were lost"
Pros: "Absolute nothing!"
Cons: "Dishonest airline. Never taking it again."
Cons: "We did not realize that we had to check in within a minimum of 2 hours before the flight or else you have to pay this ridiculous fee. They were unable to do anything us at the counter and we had to go to this separate line that was very line in order to pay this massive fee. Their emails were not clear on this policy at all and you should be able to do it at the Ryanair counter vs go to another line. It was very convoluted and not a great customer experience. I wish somebody warned me of this policy as we almost missed an entire day in Santorini."
Cons: "We got the feeling that the price is low but the company will do all it takes to FAIL the customer and make him pay more. For example, the customer must check in online. if not done properly the cost is about 100 euro more, AND the online check in procedure is not working that well, you need to press buttons several times in order for it to work (and I have a good phone), and if you give up in the middle it will cost you. More on that we did a mistake and did not purchase luggage for the way back, when we went to the desk to buy it (after standing more than 2 hours in the check in), we were told to pay 40 euros, where the price is 23 if paid online. we asked to talk to a manager and get the regular price for the suitcase, the cashier said "no problem i can call him, but then you will miss the flight..." and in the meantime there were still lots of people in the check in line... The service is very slow and not pleasant, and the crew always give you the feeling you are not ok. I understand the price is low and this is a lo cost flight, but this should not happen no matter what is the price."
Pros: "Only option available at the time. I would not have flown Ryanair if there had been any other airline flying the route in the time slot. Actual flight was fine, but the process from booking the flight to gettin aboard was horrible."
Cons: "Rayanair made the transaction as difficult, uncertain and unpleasant as they could. From the moment the booking was complete, a series of email demands, warnings and impossible conditions ensured that it was never clear whether we and our baggage would get on the flight. The initial price was unreasonably low and the eventual cost was twice what was quoted but it had to be paid as a series of penalties over several days. The contract staff in Athens were clearly demoralized, embarrassed and apolgetic, but had no flexibility to resolve issues in a reasonable way."
Cons: "we had delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "Baggage policy, no room between sits, the fact that you have to pay for everything on board including water, flight attendants have been transformed into salespersons, delay of flight for 30 minutes due to technical last minute checking."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not smooth landing"
Pros: "it wasnt that turbulent and great staff"
Pros: "Very good value for money. Courteous service by cabin crew."
Pros: "That the flight was on time. I gave 5 stars for food although I didn’t eat but what the y offered looked ok."
Pros: "Crew was very loud, I couldn't really sleep, the personal leg space is too small, could barely fit in there."
Cons: "The crew was loud (flight related issues)"
Cons: "Excessive price for a check in luggage. It is ridiculous. Outrageous."
Cons: "No drink and snacks"
Pros: "Onboard staff was friendly. Flight was on time."
Cons: "We didn't check in online and were charged almost $300 at the airport. The only time the fee was mentioned was in an email that was sent two days ago. We were already on vacation!!! And the message went directly to the SPAM folder. Ridiculous policy that was not clearly stated. We were held hostage...even though we already paid for our flight, they wouldn't give us a boarding pass without paying this new, unexpected amount of money. Ryan Air was not clear about this policy...we went back and looked at all communication from them. Kayak was not clear either, so we will be looking for a refund!!"
Pros: "Short flight and easy checkin with preprinted boarding passes."
Cons: "If you don't pay to choose your seats, they intentionally split you up from your traveling companion and then pester you to pay in order to sit together. Literally, a significant part of the plane were not sitting next to their spouse/companion. And then the crew announced that people were not allowed to switch seat because "assignments were made based on weight and balance calculations"! Wait, what?! No one asked me or my wife our weights, size, or even weight of any carry-ons, so what calculation were they making?! I'll tell you. They calculated how much money they could squeeze and, dare I say, extort from their passengers!"
Pros: "I thought the flight crew was welcoming and friendly."
Cons: "I feel this airline tries to add additional fees for everything. Airline charges a rediculous amount per ticket if you don't print out your boarding pass to check-in. I flew with 8 family members and had to pay over $100 because I did not have a paper copy of my ticket. They do not accept online confirmations for non- EU customers and no kiosk to print one...how old school. You are unable to pay for extra baggage or overage fees at the desk where you check-in. You have to leave the line and pay elsewhere and then wait back online. The charge for overage was outrages even if it was over by 1 kg..it was over $12 per kg. By the time you pay for 3 kg over you virtually pay for another baggage fee. As soon as the plane is in the air...the carts are going around for you to by products from their catalog. Collecting as much money from the customer is the first priority....customer service is second. By the time all was said in done I ended up paying more for my flight then I could have with most other airlines. The one thing I learned was to never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Boarding was easy. Coffee was good."
Cons: "Minimal leg room. No where to put books or magazines."
Cons: "Worst service ever. I didn't see the email reminder that they sent to print the boarding pass. I also didn't prepay my bag because I wasn't sure if it was going to be 15 or 20 kilos. They charged me 160 euros just to print the two boarding passes and 1 20 kilo bag and the man at the counter told me that I should have printed them at home. Not only have I never ever had hat happen to me on any respectable airline but we took Vueling from Mykonos to Rome and they included the bag and they printed the boarding passes for free as all other customer friendly airlines. Never again!! Horrible customer service."
Pros: "Getting off the plane after we landed."
Cons: "The staff charged me 62 euro for checking in my bag at the gate. Beforehand, I tried to check my bag in at the check in counter and the lady told me that I didn't need to check my nag in because it was within the required size. At the gate, I tried to explain the situation to the women, but they forced me to pay or threatened that I would miss my flight. Because it was their fault for not being consistent with enforcing the rules of Ryanair and a lack of communication on their part, I'm never flying with Ryanair again."
Pros: "The flight left on-time. The plane had 2 entrances so that helped with boarding."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. No entertainment of any kind."
Pros: "Nothing. Rude staff. Charged me 20 Euro to obtain my boarding pass"
Cons: "Worst experience I have ever had flying."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "I wish the air conditioning worked"
Pros: "It was smooth, operated well and on time!"
Pros: "simple and overall ok"
Pros: "The ticket was cheap."
Cons: "We had a RT from Rome to Athens. When we returned we arrived at 11pm with a flight at 6am. I had intended to go to a hotel 0.2 mile away, but when we got there and I found out I had to pay a min $50 fee to the cab to leave the airport, I balked. We considered just waiting it out in the airport; until midnight when they suddenly cleared the airport of all the people waiting for transfers and had everyone wait outside on the sidewalk (no seating or anything). I was in shorts and it was 45F. Sigh. Both going to and coming from Athens boarding was more like a riot. I was told it was because Italians were hot blooded. Whatever. I awaited bloodshed. My mother is 73 and we had asked for assistance with boarding. We waited as people filled the hall, surrounded the podium, and slowly were shoved on board, and still no wheelchair or assistance. We kept being told to calm as the gate closed and the departure time passed. Eventually a very nice man got mom loaded like cargo and it was kind of fun, but I didn't get the impression that the airport or Ryanair were a particularly well oiled machine. As usual, arm + leg for baggage. No free drinks and teh entertainment was a non stop cavalcade of sales from the overhead of everything from perfume to lottery tickets. If I had a long trip in a city and wanted to take a short jump to a Ryanair city with my skivvies in my purse, this is a great airline. It's crappy in every way, but cheap. But, if you want a suitcase or food or a seat that doesn't worry you about it's cleanliness and give you leg cramps for weeks, pony up for the extra."
Pros: "on time, friendly crew, well organized"
Pros: "Friendly staff and on time"
Pros: "Crew friendly."
Cons: "The website is impossible. It appeared to process my bag payment only to find out it didn't. Address options for USA don't include my address so it won't process my credit card. Online chat "help" asked me to try several things, none of which worked. Paid for bags at airport for twice the price and told how to avoid it on the return flight by cashier. Of course that method didn't work either. Would not process the Paypal payment either. Hard to believe that all the online issues are not at least somewhat deliberate so they can bill more at the airport."
Cons: "They send email about check in but if you did not get it for various reasons while traveling (lack of wi-fi access) the day of the flight even though I was there 21/2 hours before I could not get my boarding pass from the agent I was told that I had 15 minutes to check in thru the Internet because I could check in only thru the airport automatic check in system as a result I missed the deadline ( only one station was functioning) and I had to pay 55 additional euros to board the flight another ways "legal highway robbery". Traveler be aware of this airline cheap tickets but they get you in other ways...."
Cons: "Front desk was rude, confirmation of flight did not come until late at which point they charged me for late checkin per passenger w/o my consent. Extremely unprofessional, will never use the airline. KAYAK should warn clients of these measures as it make a difference in price...very misleading. Extemely unsatisfied."
Cons: "Chair does not decline"
Cons: "Everything. They charge to print out the tickets. It's insane. I will never fly them again."
Pros: "Low cost, flight schedule on a route (Athens, Greece to the island of Rhodes) which fit my travel plans"
Cons: "When my incoming flight to Athens on Delta was postponed a day by that airline, the delay was going to cause me to miss my RyanAir flight on 13 August, 2016. Despite two sessions in on-line chat with RyanAir customer service prior to the missed flight, RyanAir refused to re-schedule me. By the time the flight was actually missed, all RyanAir flights on the following day were full and I had to book a flight on Aegean Air. RyanAir is a terrible company with an incomplete web site (no phone number for customer assistance, missing data and hyperlinks that don't work or lead nowhere), unwritten rules which are non-sensual and work to the detriment of customers, and customer assistance representatives on the on-line chat who won't do anything to actually help customers."
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "18 euro per boarding pass. Apathy of employees."
Cons: "It wasn't mentioned that you cannot check in at the airport but you have to do it online. We ended up paying €55 euros for the check in even if we dont have check in baggage at the airport."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the Ryanair check in booth we were appalled to find that we were assessed absurd penalty fees for not checking in on-line 2 days prior to the flight. We had to pay 58 euros for the penalty and 46 euro for each checked bag. At least 1/2 of the customers on our flight were duped in to paying the same fee. The staff was rude, unapologetic and unconcerned with the disappointment of their customers. This seemed like an intentional scam to turn a 100 euro flight in to a 200+ euro flight. They should be ashamed of their business practices and I will NEVER be flying Ryanair again. Save yourself the headache and fly Aegean Air."
Cons: "18 hours delay , poor communication"
Cons: "I arrived at the Athens Airport 3.5h in advance. I tried to check in online. The ultimately unworkable airport wifi meant that I spent about an hour trying to get to the Ryanair website. I found an internet kiosk, only to find out that the fact that I am Canadian prevented me from checking in online. I got in the very long line to get to the Ryanair service desk and print my boarding pass, but by the time I got to the desk, I was 2 (two) minutes after the 2h boarding period limit. As a result, I was charged over twice the cost of my ticket, simply to print a piece of paper confirming the reservation I had already paid for, and had proof of in my email inbox. I am understandably outraged. I am telling everyone I know to avoid Ryanair in favor of other low-cost carriers."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable (short flight from Athens to Rome). The boarding process was a little chaotic but everyone made it through alright. There were too many passengers and not enough attendants to keep order."
Cons: "I do not understand their carry-on baggage rules and regulations and how they choose which bags should be allowed on the plain or not. We have two small carry-ons that are perfect for every other airline we have ever flown on (and we fly a lot) but we knew they did not follow Ryanair's policy so we paid about $100 (two times as much as the flight cost us) to check our bags. However, we got to the boarding gate and there were a lot of backpackers there with bags as big and as heavy as the little girls carrying them and the attendants didn't even look twice. These bags took up a whole cabin bin by themselves and the girls could not lift them without help. The bags had to forced into the overhead bins and still barely fit. However, I watched as the attendants demanded that people check their (much) smaller roller bags in the metal luggage measure and then turn them away because the back didn't quite fit. Our bags could have easily fit in the overhead compartments and yet we paid a lot of money to check them because that is what their regulations stated. I guess the determining factor is, can you carry it on your back."
Crew did not seem to care about safe deplaning process and allowed unruly passengers jamming on plane isle before plane is completely stop which cause the deplaning process chaotic.
Delayed over two hours Poor boarding and too slow Ordered wheelchair - no available help- wheelchair staff at arrival were rude
Cons: "They wanted to charge me for water in Euros, though the flight left from Istanbul and I only had Turkish lira with me. So we tried credit card, but credit card machine didn't work on any of my three cards. So they kindly brought me a free cup of water after all."
Cons: "It’s stupid Airlines. He give me brooding pass and make security check everything at final he didn’t make me fly to London because they sey u need transit visa. Why not they inform early so I can get online visa. And airlines don’t help anything finally i buy new tkt by myself ....."
Pros: "The on-board crew were friendly and professional. The in flight entertainment options were great. And the flight was mostly on time and easy."
Cons: "We had significant issues getting our one boarding pass from the computers and then the workers in the airport. We purchased both tickets together and the one had no issues. However, we got nonchalantly passed off from one employee to another without having anyone seem really concerned for us."
Pros: "We landed without crashing"
Cons: "The check in process, the upgrade process, the boarding process. And, everyone just sat where they wanted, even after I paid for the upgraded seat. The crew could not care less, and I ended up with the largest person on the plane next to me, who seat jumped, so I had to sit sideways the whole fly."
Pros: "Crew amazing .. seats not comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed boarding .."
Pros: "Nothing really"

Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "No drinks offered"
Pros: "good crew."
Cons: "very not comfortable chairs"
Pros: "You get what you pay for, nothing more and nothing less."
Cons: "Almost on every other airline you can check using the self-check-in computers at the airport; on Pegasus you can't, which caused unnecessary queues at the check-in desks (both there and back)."
Pros: "Not worse than any other low cost airline. planes are new and cabin personal was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to delay of other plane. Cabin was really hot"
Pros: "Easy check-in and boarding."
Cons: "I've never seen so many young children on a plane. There must have been one child for every one adult. Worst of all, their parents didn't even attempt to make them behave themselves. And the crew just let the kids run up and down the aisles and climb on seats. What ever happened to "please remain seated with your seat belts fastened"? Additionally, when I checked in, I asked for a window seat, the agent nodded, and when I got on the plane I found I was stuck in a middle seat. It was the longest two hours of my life."
Pros: "An early landing made my onward journey so much easier."
Pros: "Way and take two taxi Please write in the mail In big laters the terminal"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and there was enough place in the overhead bins"

Cons: "No Internet access at Istanbul airport which isahugh issue nowadays!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bad customer support, unwillingness to correct an error in the first name appearing on one of the tickets. This forced us to cancel all 5 tickets and purchase tickets for a different airline at 4 times the cost."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bad customer support, unwillingness to correct an error in the first name appearing on one of the tickets. This forced us to cancel all 5 tickets and purchase tickets for a different airline at 4 times the cost."
Cons: "The seats were very tight. The crew at the airport was terrible. The security staff didnt know english. The bis to the plane was crammed which was quite dangerous"
Pros: "clean aircraft"
Cons: "Flights are overcrowded, chairs won't recline, even a glass of water will cost you, transit via buses"
Pros: "Good price, times of flights worked for what I wanted"
Cons: "Transfer between flights was on a short timescale and I received several warnings from pegasus about delays at the airport, because of this I purchased a fast track via their site. This was a total waste of money as there was only one Peterson dealing with fast track and long queues, this meant that ordinary queue was dealt with faster."
Pros: "Flight was on time and luggage arrived. No problems!"
Cons: "We didn't get a glass of water. Shame on you"
Pros: "No problems at all, everything was OK and most important, on time"
Pros: "The seats are not narrow."
Cons: "I am guessing this company does clean their aircraft only once in a while. In both of my flights between Istanbul and Amsterdam, the airplane was not cleaned off of the previous flight's trash. When I was seated in my first flight to Amsterdam, my tray had a lot of stains of food and drinks. Not a pleasant sight! In my flight back to Istanbul, I had to travel looking at a former passenger's waste, such as a used napkin tissue, stuck to the handle of the seat, and a chocolate package. I also have to say that the sinks of the bathrooms do not drain properly, so you, actually, cannot leave the place clean for the next person. All in all, this company definitely needs to work on the cleanliness of their aircraft. Thank you!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and there were no announcements about when we would be boarding. Also the ticket check at the gate to board the buses was not the most well-organized/efficient."
Pros: "it's fine. It gets you from point A to point B."
Cons: "It's almost outrageous that they don't give water."
Pros: "It is fine. It gets you from point A to point B."
Cons: "It's almost outrageous that they don't give you water."
Cons: "The way of talking to the passengers."
Pros: "Staff was super friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The smallest leg room I have ever experienced! Flight was 30 min late, with no explanation...but we had a long layover so didn't really care."
Pros: "Although the previous flight was late, the boarding has waited for us to come."
Cons: "The staff's English was not understandable at all even for a native speaker."
Pros: "Plane is ok, clean, good condition"
Cons: "Almost no service. Cheak in took 2 hours!"
Pros: "It was a fast flight, flights have a low bar for comfort and food. The seats were fine and I slept through the flight so I cannot comment on the food but everything was clean and the staff was polite. The style of the aircraft is what shocked me. It seemed modern and almost like they hired an interior design person for style not function."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. But hey, that happens with flights"
Pros: "The crew rushed us to the next Pegasus flight (Istanbul to Beirut) so that we made it on time."
Cons: "The flight departed nearly an hour late after idling on the tarmac. All food is for purchase. There is no in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "As long as I arrive safely, price is the most important thing about a flight..."
Cons: "Ticket agent was short with us and was bothered hat she had to check us in and questioned our flight. We had a cursing drunk guy in the boarding line for 20 minutes with no staff anywhere to help the passengers he was harassing. we left the airport late and heard horror stories from many other passengers about the lack of customer service."
Cons: "Totally useless. Dirty plane, lousy service. Was ready to pay for refreshments as I had to take this low cost airline for time reasons. When trying to pay with a credit card the stewardess was telling me it was a debit card (as if I didn't know what my cards are) - after a while it appeared she mixed online and offline cards for credit and debit cards, yet she was increasingly arrogant while trying to convince me my card is a debit one. So I tried to pay cash with 100 EUR bill and she told me she was going to return the change in Turkish lira! The male steward was just standing next to the trolley without saying a word, looking afraid of his aggressive lady colleague. That's what I call customer service! The particular flight was PC861 Kuwait - Istanbul on June 17."
