Morning flight to santorini, the crew randomly pick the passenger who bring hand luggage more than 8kg.. force them to check in without cost. From gate to plane take a bus. Flight is 30 mins so short n they give small water bottle only.
Pros: "The food was excellent and the cabin crew were friendly"
Cons: "Not enough water available as it was a very warm flight and I was quite dehydrated"
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: "Again a lovely smooth flight that departed on time. The captain spoke very clearly and was easily understood."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable for this length of flight and space very limited."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and happy to assist Good communication"
Cons: "Late boarding Late gate change Too many people with large carry on bags that wouldn’t fit into storage bins"
Cons: "40 mins inside the plane before departing with temperature 30 Celsius when aircondition not functional"
Pros: "The staff especially the cabin crew were very professional and Courteous. The food was fantastic and served well."
Cons: "Being called to wait to board in a Que when we did not need to like Ryan Air"
Cons: "Disembarkation via buses. Not great."
Pros: "I would tell the boarding man (C. G..?..) that I know that TIME IS MONEY, and for that I pay my money to the air lines to help in doing my stuff (like boarding) GENTLY and respectfully. Actually, when I noticed this from you twice, I had an embression that the passport nationality harms you.... Any way, thank you."
Cons: "Food was good. Chairs were clean and relatevly good. Thank you"
Cons: "They locked the bathrooms whenever the staff were passing around drinks, food, or collecting garbage. They claimed it was due to "safety" but every staff was easily walking around passing around drinks. There was no turbulence. Even when multiple people tried to get up to go to the restroom, they sent them away. Finally, when they unlocked the bathrooms after a good 30 mins, there were HUGE lines. They did this multiple times. It doesn't make sense to lock the bathrooms that long. People need to use the restroom and then they create larger lines which is more dangerous because even more people are standing up at the same time. Doesn't make sense. Will probably not use this airline again if this occurs again."
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!!!!"
Pros: "short flight but managed to get some coffee/food, very helpful and polite crew as always"
Pros: "Was good space."
Cons: "Not informed of any delays on screen or anywhere but somehow Kayak knew before I arrived at airport."
Cons: "Cold on the plane"
Pros: "Legroom Polite and attentive crew"
Cons: "Flight times No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "I only had a 45 minute flight so it's hard to really judge anything but it wasn't a bad experience. Overall Neutral feeling."
Pros: "good service prompt take off quick disembarkation"
Cons: "the two paramedics in the seats next to me clearly engaged in an inappropriate workplace relationship lol"
Pros: "Departure delay and change of gate at last minute. This has become a frequent occurrence even though they usually make up some of the time in flight. I would appreciate more timely information about delays."
Cons: "Announced 10 minute delay but when I got to the gate the plane had not yet arrived. Eventually the delay to depart was closer to 40 minutes. This is not the first time this happened with Aegean. I would appreciate more accurate and timely information about delays so as not to have to rush to the gate and then wait."
Pros: "plane packed full but staff still managed to look after passengers needs"
Cons: "dislike bus transfers to terminal for economy reasons"
Pros: "We had a technical problem after take off and our flight needed to return to Athens airport. The Captain assured all the pax this was not a safety related issue, and a fresh plane would be ready for us when we landed in Athens. After landing in Athens at a remote gate, we were bussed to the terminal, waited for no more than 10 minutes to another aircraft to make our journey to Paris. As we got on the bus to go to the new aircraft we were handed a letter with apologies for the disruption. In this letter we were offered a free flight anywhere within the Aegean Airlines network, valid for 12 months. I thought this was great customer recovery. The same technical and cabin crew took our new plane to Paris and we managed to make up a reasonable amount of time delay. This was an unforeseen situation handled very well. Well done Aegean."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by an awful 8 hours. We were stuck at the airport through the entire morning and missed half our day in Santorini. There was very poor communication between the airline and us so we were utterly frustrated at the experience."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Great airline and a star Alliance member, will fly again for sure"
Pros: "first they announced 10 min delay, then they could not find the crew, after they appeared delay was extended to 45 min we left about 50 min late. gained some time in flight and arrived 35 min late. first batch of luggage came out relatively early and then there was a break of over 20 min before the luggage started to come out again, just as if somebody decided to have a coffee break."
Cons: "The boarding gets extremely hectic. When we were getting on our flight they kept us in a hot bus for 15 minutes before letting us out to board the plane. It's also very difficult to get someone from customer services to help - they seem to pass the buck to someone else always and you're left running in circles."
Pros: "The spinach pie and greek yogurt with honey breakfast was the BEST airplane food I've ever had! Also, I was seated in the exit row and there was a good 10 feet in front of me before the next row of seats. I didn't know what to do with all that space. Great experience"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "Staff is rude. We are the paying customer"
Pros: "Border and de boarding front and back of the plane"
Cons: "We arrived 45 minutes late to destination."
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendly and gorgeous!! And short flights!!"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little unorganized."
Cons: "No drink at the flight"
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"
Pros: "The seats were nice leather, but thin."
Cons: "No leg room. Very late departing"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant mannered, and efficient. They had only 30 minutes and they gave us a cookie, some candy, collected the trash, all very efficiently and kindly."
Cons: "I was shocked to find that we had to pay 60 euros a bag at check in. This was almost as much as the ticket and higher than any baggage fees we have paid on other airlines for much longer flights. it is a terrible way to finance an airline and be assured that we will not fly Aegean if there is any possible way to avoid it."
Pros: "It was inexpensive therefor I didn't expect much although I got more than I paid for!"
Pros: "The same wonderful Greek hospitality you're love on a plane. Smooth passage through security, smooth boarding process, and alight atmosphere on board. American airlines should take notes."
Cons: "Rough flight and bad landing"
Pros: "Super friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "The hardest landing I have ever experienced. A little scary!!!"
Cons: "Had a 8 hour delay because we mssed our flight because you let our luggage."
Pros: "Not alot. The crew were very professional and nice to the eye"
Cons: "No information on delay. Boardind process: id and boarding card were checked on entry to the gate area. Then once again before the actusl boarding: doing the ssame job twice and creating a further delay."
Pros: "On a 40 min flight, they actually passed out a snack. Boarding was good even though we didn't have a gate and had to be bussed."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. They made an announcement about it in Greek, and either didin'r repeat it in English, or the words were so unintelligible I thought it was Greek."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Deplaning onto a bus for a 30 meter walk was ridiculous when it could be walked easily."
Cons: "BE EXYREMELY CAREFUL WITH BAGGAGES FEES: 35 EUROS x2 MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE AT THE END. I would not have picked kayak if it would have been CLEARLY indicated when I bought the ticket"
Pros: "They were on time, got us there early and provided a snack even thought we were only in the air 30 minutes."
Pros: "Snack was very good. Attendants helpful and pleasant"
We have to wait more for cheking the luggage, not two hours before, just one hour and a half. The flight was on time
+ the crew was great + clean airplane - we had priority boarding and there was no call for priority boarding - we had a fast lane (received in the email the info, but not showing on the boarding card) and it was complicated to manage to use it in the MRS airport. The security line was immense and there was no sign whatsoever informing us about Fast Lane, but we found it and had to find the email confirming we had special attention offered by Kayak in the airport of Marseille, etc.
I paid extra for my carry on but it is for “check-in” only. The only way my carry on can go with me to the cabin is to pay another extra 50 Euro under “priority boarding”. This luggage policy is confusing and basically it’s price gouging!
Le vol a été annulé sans aucune autre proposition respectant nos dates et nos tarifs engagés. C'est de la prise d'otage et nous allons devoir lancer une procédure si le remboursement ne se réalise pas rapidement.
Funny crew with a great sense of humor.
We had to wait 1h to register the luggage, then the flight was delayed and arrived 1h15 later than expected
I paid extra money at the Barcelona airport to register and get my boarding pass ! I’ve already register 2 days before but didn’t get my boarding pass by email ! Unacceptable
We had pay 50 euros taxe bagage to aéroport and we have already pay with kayak option bagage cabine It is not normal Bad service of kayak
Pros: "Quick flight, arrived early! That part was great!"
Cons: "Boarding is a joke. Everyone hoards the gate and there is no organization. Recommend using boarding zones. Italians have no idea how to make lines."
Pros: "The crew did a fanstastic job!"
Cons: "The seats werent the best and my seat didnt have a window."
Cons: "We did not arrive on time to the flight because our conection delayed and the airfligt company did nothing to help us."
Cons: "Beware of checked baggage, the costs are astronomic (around 60 usd per bag)"
Cons: "High baggage and other fees that are not publicized. Web site just says check bags start at 15 euro, actual price was over 50 euro."
Cons: "Very high baggage and other fees that are not publicized. Web site just says checked bags start at 15 euro, actual price was over 50 euro."
Cons: "The return flight was very turbulent, but mostly close to take off and landing."
Cons: "To check a bag is about $75 if you do it at airport. We witnessed a number of people who had done carry on from Athens to Santorini not be able to do carry on back. It's a scam on the Island. The bin in which you have to fit your bag is smaller on Santorini."
Pros: "Boarding was like any other boarding, it went fine, but then we had to sit on runway for about 30 minutes or so. Not a huge deal. I keep myself busy on computer so flight went quickly."
Cons: "Flight crew was not happy and they didn't even pretend to be. Seats were not comfortable at all and mine even had a huge tear in it so it just bugged my back side the entire flight. Food was not good at all! Salad smelled moldy. Oh yeah, and I ended up paying extra for my bags that were exactly the same as my husbands but he was not up charged. Between the c crew and the constant selling and up charges, I would rather pay more for a different company."
Pros: "Organization in boarding the plane"
Cons: "When i read the baggage rate, its only 20 euro, when i got there its 40 euro the lady told me its cheaper on line cuz i was there 6 hours early. I didnt know that i have to buy the baggage ahead of time. It would be nice if its highlighted in red when i bought the tix. Also i had to pay extra 30 euro bec i didnt chk in on line, seriously? What is the point of having a chk un counter? Also i was told to come back 2 hours before my flight . As i said i was there 6 hours eatly, when i came back the chk in on line is already closed. Im sure its a common problem , a lot if ppl paid extra and were complaining, they could have told us or have a sign there. Dont u think 30 euro is a lot to pay for not chking in? Is it only in europe? Its better when we book that ppl shld be warn of the pronlem, i paid extra 210 euro bec there are 3 of us plus the internet there suck at the airport , if you get in on the internet in 2 mins you are out or cant get in gor hours"
Cons: "I booked an afternoon flight on Volta. They changed me weeks later to a morning flight. I told them I wanted to cancel my earlier flight and preferred a refund instead. I have never received credit for my cancellation."
Cons: "Worst airline I've ever experienced, avoid at all costs"
Cons: "Missed our connection they did not accommodate at all Wanted to sell us another flight the next day My brother made the flight and him and his girlfriend had to pay 140 euros for carry on and boarding pass THEIR LOW PRICES ARE A SCAM BAIT SND SWITCH"
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "About 50 minutes late, hard landing, and worst of all they called us for boarding and we went out of the semi-comfortable terminal and STOOD in the HOT sun. Our plane hadn't even landed. We stood out there for 40 minutes. Voltea is even a worse version of Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "I cancelled the trip because in reading the fine print, I found the cost of checking a single small bag almost as much as the cost of the flight itself. Cancellation was accepted but took some effort to do it."
Pros: "Accepted phone scans of our boarding passes. Decent price Nice crew Left a little late but still managed to arrive 15 minutes early on a one hour flight."
Cons: "I only gave one star for food but I didn't buy any food so I would rather have a "not applicable" category."
Pros: "Helpful and smiling staff , seats have good leg room , time of departure was accurate"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "minimum fuss from beginning to end, and no bombarding by emails. their staff all handle carry-on luggage discreetly even when slightly over sized ... Compliments to Volotea."
Pros: "The friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Unfriendly check in agent and having to pay for everything including being able to sit next to my husband makes it not worth their "affordable" fares. Note: print out your boarding card and check in prior to arriving to airport, otherwise it's an additional $40/pp."
Cons: "Due to delays we missed our flight. I emailed and got no response. Tried calling. Office was closed on Saturday. Went to their desk and no one was there. I would like to be reimbursed. I had to then pay for two tickets on Aegean Airline totalling $400.00"
Pros: "Excellent price and route. Very friendly crew. I didn't need much for a 2hr flight. Met all my expectations."
Pros: "Flight was fine once we got going but one staff working made for a long long line and a half hour delay. Staff were excellent though."
Pros: "Personnel were helpful, polite and spoke English as well as many other languages."
Cons: "Volotea is a low cost airline that charges for early seat assignments, printing boarding passes, luggage and drinks on the flight. There is a service charge added to everything. It isn't as low cost as it initial appears. Beware"
Pros: "Good short flight"
Cons: "Short flight, no food or entertainment"
Cons: "There was no airline or flight by his name ."
Cons: "The flight was 5 hours late and the company did not give us any information about when the flight would take off and what the problem was. They sent us a voucher for €10 for our next flight. No thanks."
Cons: "The Volotea website was very poorly run and thus, we accidentally booked the flight on the wrong date, due to the way the calendar was loaded on the site. We entered the correct date, but somehow we still received flights for 5 days after the date we needed. We tried to change them at the airport, and after being sent to 2 different ticket counters, we ended up paying an additional $420 to get the flights we needed. Therefore, each flight from Athens to Mykonos was over $400 each. It was ridiculous and I will NEVER fly this airline again."
Pros: "Too short of a flight for food and entertainment! Smooth flight. No complaints"
Cons: "Hidden fees everywhere with this airline as well as smaller than usual carry-on requirements. My carry-on that fit everywhere else but cost me an extra 40 euros to check with this airline. Also a young women was told at the check-in counter that her carry-on was acceptable but at the gate was told different. They then preceded to demand 60 euros cash as a penalty. Just wasn't right."
Cons: "The next flight they had to my destination was 3 DAYS later. Therefore, I had to purchase another three tickets with a different carrier and got NO credit for the missed fight with Volotea. BAD Business."
Pros: "Price, direct flight"
Cons: "No frills, no beverage/snack service, seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "We printed the boarding passes a week prior and we were ready to go! However Volotea emailed us 24 hours prior to tell us some information had changed and we had new boarding passes. We were worried that we had to pay extra as we were already traveling and could not print the new boarding passes. It was no problem! We downloaded the app and the crew just scanned the app boarding passes. It was a huge relief."
Pros: "Nothing, flight was cancelled 6 months ago and I still have not received my refund."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 6 months ago and I still have not received my refund."
Pros: "price was great for our flight, otherwise it was like any other flight, nice attendants, nice clean plane, on time"
Cons: "Plane delayed for 2 hours. Small, cramped airport(Santorini) with no working men's restroom."
Cons: "Was delayed and had to cancel flight and book a different airline"
Pros: "on time inexpensive and nice flight attendants"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Extra charge (30 Euros) for printing a boarding pass. Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "The flight was so smooth I forgot I was on a plane. Great landing, too."
Pros: "Nothing to be honest."
Cons: "When we checked in my bag was 21 kg and she gave me trouble with that even though we had to pay extra for the bag in the first place. And then since it was a backpack we had to take it to a different location to drop it off for check-in. She also wasn't too friendly either. The flight was an hour and a half delayed. In fact each time I have flown with volotea the airplane hasn't been on time and hasn't even taken off by the time the flight was scheduled to land! The seats were close and the ride was not comfortable. I absolutely will not be using this airline again and certainly would not recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport two hours before the flight and were told we had to pay 30 euro/person (120 euro total) for boarding passes. Really?!? We had been checked in, but hadn't printed the boarding passes. They told us that they had just closed the opportunity to do this for free at the airport & we now had to pay the exorbitant fee or no boarding passes and no getting on the plane. No other way around it. It just felt like yet another ridiculous excuse to suck more money out of passengers. Just like the banks...a fee here, a free there will add to the profit bottom line without providing any additional value for the customer. Buyer beware!"
Efficient boarding and offloading. Cheap flight… get what I paid for!
un enregistrement des bagages par ordre de vol. Le plus tôt en premier;
flight was delayed but overall all was good
Very much on time, enjoyed the magazine and services
A coffee at 7 am in the morning would have been nice.
Welcome to the new age of flights!
We hope that soon Sky Express will have the entire airplane fleet refreshed. More new airplanes to fill the gap and expand further direct flights to new airports. Crew acts responsibly and kind, which is even more important at this pandemic period.
I was going to miss my connecting flight with sky Express also and the people in the office said they couldn't help me book another flight for the next day, but that I had to wait until anthens and go their office to help me. Other people on staff were friendly though.
Pros: "Not a lot of anything."
Cons: "Everything. Just a really bad flight I’m general."
Pros: "Never again"
Cons: "I had to pay extra for baggage, I had baggage on the booking, but upon booking it was only for 8 KG, and need to purchase more, The baggage cost was almost equal to the ticket, needs to be addressed on the home page, I pick with baggage and then booked the ticket, needs to show that it is not the same baggage as other flights, comparison is wrong."
Cons: "Only allowed 15kgs even though we had booked for 23 on the way to Santorini. Not sure where this discrepancy occurred but had to pay for extra weight."
Pros: "Crew and flight attendants were highly professional. Arrived early; short boarding time. Airport was clean and easy to navigate. Good places to dine."
Cons: "The web site is difficult to navigate, including the determination of luggage pricing and seat assignments only available at check-in."
Cons: "Three hours of delay for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Fast flight. Nice staff onboard aircraft."
Cons: "The boarding process at Milos airport is a bit slow but I guess that is to be expected in the islands."
Cons: "I have never been treated so horribly by another human as I was by the boarding gate agent. My luggage was a roller board that was approved by the check-in counter to go aboard. Upon boarding the woman refused to let me board stating my bag was too large. I was charged 60 euros."
Cons: "The repeatedly delayed our flight without further information, leaving us in the dark as to what was goin going on, the reason for the delay, and when the expected new time of take off is. Disappointing service. Could have been better handled by sky express staff."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no notice / flight attendant rude , very bad experience"
Cons: "Sent the passengers but not your bags without telling us. Caused a great deal of trouble, time and anxiety as we had another international flight to catch. Would not fly them again."
Cons: "After years of checking in online well before a flight with other airlines an inability to do so for this sky express flight made me nervous that something was wrong or that I would be charged a fee to check in at the airport. Ultimately everything worked out once we arrived at the counter."
Pros: "Delayed 90 min and missed our connection"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "It was terribly hot - everyone on the flight was fanning themselves with the emergency instructions and looking miserable. The individual air didn't work either. Felt like I was going to passout."
Cons: "20 min delay Crew doesn’t smile"
Pros: "The cabin crew was professional and helpful"
Cons: "If buying through Kayak, it isn't clear that SkyExpress has severe weight restrictions on luggage. You are allowed a small carry-on, but at the discounted fare, any checked baggage over 8kg is charged at 8 Euros per kg (around $4.25 per lb), which can add up to a large surcharge quickly."
Cons: "Great flight, great people"
Cons: "Long wait and crowded Santorini airport"
Cons: "Paying $600 for the next leg of our flight because of airline delay."
Cons: "My name was listed twice on the iten. Didn’t bord."
Pros: "Once on plane rest was quick"
Pros: "Fast check-in at counter, no line. Was invited to Sky Express lounge prior to boarding. Small plane meant a quick boarding with no issues."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late."
Pros: "No pros. Will never travel with them again."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late and there was NO air conditioning on the flight. It was 87 degrees on the flight and we spent almost 2 hours in that heat on the plane between the actual flight time and just sitting on the runway for an hour. Nothing was done to accommodate for the heat. I’m 5 months pregnant and felt unsafe. Everyone on the flight was suffering. It was inhumane conditions. I will NEVER fly with this company again."
Pros: "I mean the flight gets you to and from..."
Cons: "Sky charges for every KG over 15kilos unless you have a special ticket. This option is not listed on kayak and the suggest you book thru sky. Problem is NOBODY BOOKS VIA SKY AND THEIR WEBSITE IS GARBAGE. YOU CANT EVEN CHECK IN ONLINE. The result is many rude, dismissive folks charging an extra 100 euros for something you will have no control over."
Pros: "Thankfully no extra fee for baggage, although what constitutes as carry on for another airline, they require you to check."
Cons: "We were very delayed on the way leaving Mykonos and there wasn’t a single notification, update or apology. The plane had no air, was extremely hot and muggy, almost unbearable. On the other end, luggage delivery extremely delayed. Completely incompetent airline and staff. Never again."
Cons: "20 minute delay with nobody at the gate and no communication about why we were leaving late"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I realize we’ve all heard the required announcements a hundred times but, if you are going to bother saying it, please speak more slowly and clearly."
Cons: "Very late and hot. Unorganized."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The tickets I purchased through Kayak stated we were allotted 23 kilo/bag, the standard for most airlines. We flew Sky Express to Santorini with no issues. It wasn’t until we were boarding to go back to Athens when the attendants for Sky Express told us the limit per bag was only 15 kilo, not 23. I spoke with someone in their management office at the Santorini airport and apparently they have different levels of tickets you can purchase, the highest allows the most amount of baggage weight. I explained to them that we had no issues flying into Santorini and showed them my e-ticket from Kayak that clearly showed 23 kilo/bag limit and they would not honor that. We wound up having to pay over $80 in baggage fees because we were lied to by Kayak. Thank you Kayak."
Pros: "Easy checkin, no issues"
Cons: "Skyexpress is extremely disorganized and the flight was very old. The flight is very small and in a poor condition. The baggage policy is very unreasonable and I had to pay extra even though my kayak confirmation says 23 kg per passenger clearly! I showed the representative and they said to deal with it from the "vendor" I used to book! Very disappointed with sky express!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Ridiculous wait to get a boarding pass--standing and standing in line before they opened the desk. Santorini airport a nightmare. Old plane.... the letters of the airline's name were peeling off the plane. Flight was fine"
Cons: "Trip cancelled due to high winds. I was forced to keep my luggage on the plane for an hour after the cancellation then another hour to get out of baggage claim. Don't take those small planes, fly Aegean or Olympic who have bigger planes and the best pilots."
Pros: "Short time for boarding"
Cons: "I had to pay extra charge due to lack of communication between the KAYAK and the S.A Then the KAYAK blamed me for paying this money even though I emailed them telling what happens exactly. I don't recommend using KAYAK for booking flights again"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. Flight time was short."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed, I almost missed my ferry connection"
Pros: "It was a very fast fight"
Cons: "No air conditioning on a very hot day"
Cons: "The airline closed the gates 30 minutes prior to boarding and wouldn't let us get in the plane. We missed our flight and had to find another way there. No refunds or credit"
Cons: "I purchased 3 tickets through Hahn Air for a special trip for my daughters. I rechecked reservations before to make sure had everything in place, since I named my daughter Santorini afte the island. The day of the flight, we spent 2 hours waiting in line for this flight. The service was exceptionally slow and they kept letting other passengers who were on another flight ahead of us. When I got to the check-out counter we were told that our flight didn't exist and it was like we were ghosts in the system. Even after showing proof of our e-ticket confirmation, it didn't matter. We had to repurchase new tickets at high prices and wait the whole day at the airport to get to Santorini. My friends who were traveling with us had to go on without us and the expensive hotel I purchased for the trip was a waste. We didn't get off the island until 8 and arrived late in Santorini. The whole experience was a disaster."
Cons: "They charged us 6 euro per kilo for every kilo over the bad weight limit, but our ticket only allowed for a very small bag which we didn't know until we were at the ticket counter and it was too late. No one tried to help us or have any sort of customer service so we ended up paying a lot of money so that we didn't make other passengers wait on us to transfer weight."
Pros: "though the plane is small the process of boarding is smooth & efficient"
Cons: "seating is small."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport over 90 minutes before our flight and were never warned we’d be charged a hefty fee if we didn’t check in ahead of time. We did try to check in prior, but there was an error in my confirmation code and it didn’t work. They told us we couldn’t get on our flight, then charged us $487 euros to take a different flight and required us to check all our bags! A total scam and they were extremely rude!!"
Pros: "Despite stating on the website a printed boarding pass is required I arrived at the airport with only the boarding pass on my phone and all was good."
Cons: "They put my daughter (under 16) on an exit seat only to tell later she can’t sit there! They randomly selected the seat for her in the first place!!!"
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."
Pros: "Horrible customer service .. The plane had one and half hour delay and the plane landed so badly that we thought it’s going to crash . I would like to get a refund ."
Cons: "Flight had one and half hour delay and the landing of the plane was so horrible . All the passengers were scared to death . I would like to get a refund."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Worst airline unfriendly staff. They ripped us for more money when it was their fault not sending an email. I hope more people complain so they get their act together."
Cons: "We were scarred because they sounded very strict but the flight left in time and arrived early. Checking was fast and great."
Pros: "Quick service overall well conducted."
Cons: "The queue to the ground transportation had no order at all."
Pros: "Short flightt"
Cons: "The no variation policy in spite of explanation"
Cons: "Overcharged for everything. If you need to check a bag or want to sit next to the person you are traveling with, then you are charged fees. The checked bag fee was almost $50. On board, nothing is offered and they try to sell you perfume and other extras. Overall, the boarding was a mess, the staff were not very friendly, and it was not a great experience."
Pros: "I can't think of anything."
Cons: "So many add on expenses, additional 47 Euro for a checked bag, 15 Euro to pick our seat, etc.. Tickets ended up being more expensive than Olympic Air, even though they were more affordable on the surface. We ran 20+ minutes late, Boarding was a zoo. We were told we couldn't take a small back pack on the plan and had to check it, once on board there was more than enough room to put it under my feet. others had the same size bag or bigger."
Cons: "Their website is extremely hard to use. I was unable to pay for my bags online and yet they advertize 25 euros a bag. I was charged 49 euros per bag at the airport.It costs more for your bag than for yourself to fly. I was not the only person in line at the baggage counter who had the same complaint. A family was charged over 300 euros for their luggage and they stated the same complaint that they were unable to pay for their luggage online. They are actually the most expensive way to travel."
Cons: "I absolutely hated this trip. In order to check in i had to have my tickets on my phone. Even though I knew my confirmation number. We were told to go to a terminal to get our ticket printed out. I checked in early online so that was weird. We went to the terminal and couldn't figure out how to print it out. After about 20 minutes we got upset and left the terminal to get help. A guy told us he could print off our tickets 37€ to get a flight ticket printed off. He worked for Ryanair. He said if I pull it up off my phone I could get it with an email. Unfortunately I'm a tourist and don't have signal in that country and the wifi was conveniently not operational. I was to to try a local cafe to use wifi. I went to the cafe used their WiFi and then pulled my ticket online. I brought it to the guy who needed my ticket. I asked to check my luggage on. She said I couldn't because my luggage was broken because on my flight to Athens it came back to me broken. Frustrated I walked off to security in Athens. I went to go to my gate and looked at the ticket. The ticket didn't even have my gate on there. I searched on the board for my flight to come on in English but everything was moving too fast so it took 10 minutes to do. I finally found the gate I needed to go to and left. By this time 1hr and 30 minutes we're expended before I got to even security. I got to security and through my backpack containing my camera equipment onto the scanner taking my laptop out. They kicked the back back saying I had to take all my gear out of the back so they can scan it. ( I mean what's the point of a scanner anyways) they they told me to open up my lenses to see inside.... Like what?! I did that so he could look into my lenses. Then he asked me to open up my laptop so he could see inside the laptop.... Again... Seriously?? You have a scanner. Then they told to take all my hygiene products including my expensive calone I put in my bag that was intended for check luggage and throw it away. Because my luggage was broken and wasn't able to go on the plane I lost about $100 of hygiene products. Let me tell you I also work in Africa.... I can't get hygiene products anymore. We began boarding the plane. The ticket on my phone wasn't able to be scanned and see had to put the number in manually. Then we got to the plane and told us to leave my luggage at the bottom of the stairs to be put into the plane with the checked luggage. My broken luggage that wasn't accepted for check luggage was now checked luggage just without all the important items I needed -_- worst airline and airport ever. Never fly with them."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than original time."
Cons: "The gate was not announced until 20 mins before the gate closed time."
Cons: "No cancelation, no refunds or exchanges for missed flight."
Cons: "We flew Ryanair from Athens and Santorini. My friend got her phone stolen the day before and had to cancel her credit card. Instead of contacting her or letting her know what was happening, Ryanair cancelled her flight. We got to the airport and they were not understanding and would not let her board, although they could see that her reservation once existed, and they just canceled it without her knowledge. We were forced to board the flight while she waited for another one in Athens."
Cons: "We only received emailed in Greek while we were in the United States and didn’t receive any emailed while we were in Greece prior to our flight to Santorini from Athens. When we went to the airport we were told that we had pay 66 euros per person because we didn’t register online for checkin. We were told that if we didn’t we wouldn’t be let on our flight. This happened with many customers that were inline with us. Terrible flight, would not recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "Staff was nice and friendly."
Cons: "It was a 35 min flight. Although cheap, the baggage fees are ridiculous. It was cramped. And it took forever to board. Seriously our boarding passes were checked 3 different times."
Cons: "Extort money for no pre boarding. Also, no beverage service on flight. But did roll around cart yo dell stuff. Also, didnt sit eith my wife"
Cons: "The check-in kiosk was broken so weer could not print our boarding passes. We had to argue with the attendant to print the passes which almost made us late for our flight."
Cons: "The on-line check-in site for Ryanair is terrible. Not at all user friendly. Of course this may be deliberate because if you have to check-in at the airport, they extract a big fee from you."
Pros: "It was a quick flight from Athens to Santorini and it left on time."
Cons: "Didn't think about pre-checking bags. It was expensive. So all liquids were taken and thrown out upon security check. The bags were checked anyway. There were not many people with their carry one on the plane, most ended up being checked."
Cons: "Having to check a bag that will fit in the plane and being charged so much"
Pros: "Very quick service! We paid for two checked bags and priority boarding which made this flight especially smooth. The service was friendly and fast."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "We had to print the boarding pass. Few rules we couldn't understand. Gave baggage tag separately near the gate. Have to check in in advance get ur own boarding pass printed."
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: "Nothing . I wish there was an option for 0 stars"
Cons: "They charged 3 times more on the actual ticket for CHECK-IN at the airport and PRINTING BOARDING PASSES. Sent us to the cashier two times separately to pay for checkin bags and for the boarding passes. When we did not understand the extra round trips to the cashier the agent yelled at us. If you must fly RyanAir -make sure you pay for every thing on line ahead of the tIme and unless you are a back packer do not think you are getting a bargain price."
Cons: "I did check in online but the web site did not send me the boarding pass to my email. I thought it is fine. But We I got airport the counter charge me more than $60/each for check in!!!. And they are very rude. Just say to us either do it or just leave. Very bad feeling"
Pros: "Not much to like about Ryanair."
Cons: "All the fees and restrictions are ridiculous. They are so picky about weight & size of luggage. While we were checking in, everyone had their luggage open trying to finagle weight. Boarding is total chaos and very inefficient. So many things to say about Ryanair - none of which is good. I would never fly Ryanair again. If travelling Europe, try Aegean or EasyJet. Avoid Ryanair !"
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: "price until I had to pay 62 euros for a bag that was 1cm too big (but still fit on the plane on the flight in on Ryan air)."
Cons: "no announcements about the delay. just stood and waited. baggage policy is absurdly expensive. no wonder they can survive on discounted tickets...they make it up in all the extra charges."
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."
Cons: "All the extra charges they try to get from you."
Pros: "Cheap fares."
Cons: "The airline is dependent on tacking you with extra fees from extra baggage or denying you boarding so that you eventually have to pay more. If you depend on this type of service as an airline they should never be in the business period."
Cons: "Had to pay 20 euros to get a boarding pass printed because we hadn't had access to a printer and hadn't downloaded the PDF file to our phone. The customer service was terrible, we had to rush to our flight, and the baggage lady gave me back the wrong passport. What a joke. I will never fly this airline again."
Cons: "I work for a main line airline in the U.S. when we were boarding the flight I noticed we were on a 737-800 which I'm familiar with this aircraft. I know my bag will fit with no problem. As we a bearing the podium the agent says the bag is to big and demands I pay 65 euros. I am trying to explain to her that the bag will fit. Long story short they got 65 euros out of me. I probably won't fly them again ."
Pros: "Nothing - it was slow and the most inconvenient process I've ever had to deal with when flying."
Cons: "The entire check in process is a joke. They have no signs or employees standing there telling you where to go, so you wait in line with everyone else. Then you get to the ticket counter and they tell you you need to go to a counter behind in order to get boarding pass + pay for baggage claim. We wasted 45 minutes in a line that could have been avoided if they were more willing to help their customers upfront."
Cons: "Airport staff not professional, No customer service, the airline is not customer service oriented. I will never fly Ryanair ever!!!"
Cons: "We got charged 68 euro each because we were waiting on the line and it was 5 minutes after the check in window closed- as much as the flight itself. When we went to board, the flight was late and chaotic."
Pros: "The flights were on time. Crew were polite and efficient. Pilot was smooth with the controls and kept everyone informed of weather and progress"
Cons: "Boarding had long with lines for check in and the policy of having a check in counter and then a second check in for carry on bags after the passport control and scanners was deceptive at best. I watched several frustrated passengers trying to cram legitimate small bags into the carry-on measuring cage. After failing they were asked for money - these bags were small and reasonable so be aware of the measurements before you fly."
Pros: "You know what you're paying for when you fly RyanAir but it's usually worth it especially on these short flights. Boarding, traveling, and landing were all great!"
Cons: "Be prepare for surprised$€£¥! Ryanair wil always find a way to get from you ~4x the cost of you ticket. They will have a charge for everything (check in at the airport=€45, select seats,etc) and you will be told from this at the check-in time. I though I was prepared to avoid all these surprises, but at the boarding time they told to most of the passengers they need to check at least one carry in item because there will be no space. They charge us €65 to check one carry on luggage, even though it complied with carry on dimensions and weight. If this surprise charge of €65 is compare to the €18 cost of the ticket (from ATH to JTR) you will note you will actually pay 4x of the ticket cost."
Pros: "on time, friendly crew, well organized"
Pros: "Friendly staff and on time"
Cons: "The damn fee they charged me when I was still an hour and 1/2 early to print boarding passes"
Cons: "I do not like the rule to make the check in through out the internet or otherwise, any late of that you pay an expensive plenty"
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "We, along with many other people in the ticketing line were told to get a ticket voucher from another kiosk that we were unaware of. This is ridiculous. My wife and I paid over 300 euro just to take a 40 minute flight. I feel like this is a trick for the airline to make lots of money."
Pros: "They switched the flight time from a day flight to a time after midnight which was totally inconvenient. We had to book another flight"
Cons: "They switched the flight time from a day flight to a time after midnight which was totally inconvenient. We had to book another flight"
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: "The staff before the plane"
