Quick flight. Easy and cheap! Better than taking a ferry over 4 hours

Flight delayed and jampacked full.

Pros: "fast and efficient"
Cons: "Plane has propellers so it was shaking"
Cons: "More media or WiFi on board (& not only for flights abroad). Thank you."
Pros: "All round the flight was uneventful ie just how it should be."
Cons: "The transfer between flights was difficult due to the distance from one gate to the other gate and the tight timeframe - the cabin crew advised there would be a connection ambassador at the gate to assist, when we arrived, but there wasn't which made it a bit more difficult but none the less I made the connecting flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding, on time and nice beverages."
Pros: "I’m an average size male and I could fit in the seat"
Cons: "3” leg room."
Pros: "Crew was great!! Food was good! On the whole a good flight!"
Cons: "Seats are always an issue. They need to be wider and needs to be legroom."
Pros: "The granola bar was a nice added touch for such a short flight. Crew members were all friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Waited for our connecting flight luggage to arrive to plane."
Cons: "It was delayed and we weren’t informed"
Pros: "Attendants with positive attitude and smiles."
Cons: "Earlier notice when there is a delay occurred, so that we could arrange our time better, with no hurry or longer with some people."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Super easy boarding, crew was nice, no troubles at all with baggage"
Cons: "You need to download the Aegean Airlines app beforehand if you want access to any kind of entertainment on the flight."
Pros: "Flying with Olympic Airlines on their ATR-42, it was only to be a quick flight hopping from Athens to Limnos. Despite only a 25-minute cruise, the flight attendant still walked down the island with complimentary drinks and snacks, making the whole flight experience rather calm and enjoyable."
Pros: "Last row has a great recliner!!!"
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Was an easy boarding. I like that they serve bottled water and not tap water."
Pros: "Very punctual and easy. Very friendly crew."
Cons: "The seats feel small both in width and in leg room. Online check in did not work properly--I got a message that I was put on the stand-by list."
Pros: "At least they didn't recharge me for the luggage. Although the baggage check-in person did not like this. Informed me that I had not paid, and when I showed her the paper and pointed to the desk across the terminal, she reluctantly accepted it. Flight landing and takeoff were good."
Cons: "Totally impossible to make over an hour connection time. The airport passport control and security checks were poorly conducted and multiple checks for all the same information. I assume part of this is because Turkey is not part of the EU, but customers should be made aware of this on booking. We got through all the checks and briskly walked "straight" to the gate where we were informed the boarding had closed 4 minutes before. We were sent back to a desk with very poor directions how to get there, where we were informed that we had plenty of time between flights. They allowed 55 minutes and it took us 80 min to arrive at her counter. She accused os of stopping, maybe to go to the bathroom, or get a cup of coffee, of which we had not even hesitated in our jog to the gate. They refused to rebook our ticket and we then had to go, in a very round-about method back through the airport to recover our "lost" luggage because it had been removed from the flight we were supposed to be on. We were not informed that it had been removed. I had to ask if it would be in Heraklion when we arrived and then she said, "oh no, it was taken off the plane when you didn't board". After picking up the luggage, we were to find a travel agency to book a new flight and go through the entire check in process again. I asked if there would be enough time to accomplish this and was told "it should be, if you don't make any stops." After walking back & forth through the entire airport at least 3 times, we ended up with a last minute gate change and apparently was not the only change. There was no control of the loading. Seats were like sitting on stone. I will never willingly use Agean or Olympic or whatever it was, again. This was not inexpensive. Rebooking for this less than 1 hour flight cost me 106 Euros each."
Cons: "Airline lost my checked bag"
Pros: "Again a comfortable flight and pleasant crew."
Cons: "A slight delay boarding.but staff very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The spaciousness. The brightness of the airplane—not just clean but glowing. The crew was too perfect. Did you clone Stepford wives?"
Cons: "Nothing. No negative remarks from me"
Pros: "It was by far the best of all 3 of the flights I had to take to get to Greece."
Cons: "They lost my luggage and the crew would not let me go to the restroom."
Cons: "Bags hasn't arrived in Corfu. We came for a wedding and ended up with no dress or anything. Very annoying!"
Pros: "Very fast and nice crew"
Cons: "The landing was a bit shaky and they boarded very late"
Pros: "Aegean airlines is always spot on with service and punctuality!"
Pros: ":)"
Pros: "Great that they boarded families with young children first. We then were bused to the aircraft. Short flight and bags came out quickly."
Pros: "Plenty of room, friendly flight crew, comfortable cabin. It was my 4th flight that day and definitely the best of the 4. One long flight I had that day had poor air circulation...the Aegean flight had air vents that worked!"
Cons: "We arrived in Athens earlier than planned and would have liked to have been able to get on an earlier flight. Aegean would not let us trade to an earlier flight...only way to fly earlier would be to pay full fare again."
Pros: "Nice service on short flight"
Cons: "The plane did not arrive at the terminal. Required going down stairs, riding a bus to the terminal. Baggage was slow."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Late for no good reason (they said operations which to me read we are just kind of disorganized at the gate), boarding was chaos and they carried out service so slow that only about half the plane got it. Also crew was rude and demanded that I take my headphones off though I could hear them fine and was complying with instructions to raise seat and table as they were mentioning the headphones. Wasn't worth pointing out that and the fact that other ppl had headphones to them as they all seemed miserable to be there anyway. Just complied and was happy it was a short flight. Oh I guess on the positives the plane didn't fall apart midflight and only one wheel broke off on landing (kidding I felt safe)."
Pros: "It takes only 45 minutes or so. I could leave the plane in a short time sitting at the rear. They open both doors, and a bus takes the passengers to the terminal. I could sniff that typical Creten air when arriving: kerozin+ breeze from the air. I love it!"
Cons: "I was less lucky concerning my seat from Athens to Heraklion. I got a B seat, happened to sit next to a rather fat man in row 29. I am not a Twiggy myself, if it means anytning to you. His wife was sitting in front of him, more comfortably. It is a private problem of course, not their fault. Economy is economic."
Pros: "Great plane"
Pros: "On time and great service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight to Athens was forced to make an emergency landing for medical emergency. After we proceeded to Athens from the small island of Portugal, we were already too late to catch the flight from Athens to Mykonos. I went to the AEgean airlines desk to switch the flight to a later flight which they accommodated. He then proceeded to tell me that I must pay an extra €80 for the flight to Mykonos. I told him that I paid a high fair for this ticket and he said yes that's the only reason I'm charging €80. When I checked kayak at that moment the price for the flight that he was switching me to was exactly the same price as what I had paid. He said this was the best that they can do, take it or leave it. I'm very disappointed and feel I'm entitled to reimbursement. Please let me know what I should do i'm very disappointed and feel I'm entitled to reimbursement. Please let me know what I should do"
Pros: "Spacious seats with lots of leg room"
Cons: "Boarding was late both flights and we were delayed"
Cons: "Myself, my husband, and our two young children traveling with my elderly father in law nearly missed our 5:50 AM flight out of Athens due to incompetent staff and a frozen system that was assessing an absurd 50€ PER carry-on bag fee for each of us plus another 50€ for one carry-on tennis racquet bag! Be warned that with Aegean you end up paying an additional 50% or more of the cost of the ticket in "luggage allowance." These are misleading and deceptive business practices. Not to mention how ineffective it is to hold up a flight by making a person run around to various ticket counters to pay the hidden fees. Now that we are leaving the island to London via Athens the airline refuses to connect the two legs of the itinerary despite the fact that they are both on Aegean. The only reason being so they can assess two separate "luggage allowance" fees. We warned guests visiting from abroad prior to traveling to be sure to pay the mysterious "luggage allowance" fee. They did so and yet were told they needed to pay yet another one once they checked-in. Flying Aegean is an infuriating exercise in paying multiple hidden fees, bureaucracy and inefficiency. This is how they say, Welcome to Greece!"
Pros: "There is nothing good to say about this airline other than the plane made it to the destination"
Cons: "45 min on line at the check in counter in Athens. Luggage policy online not clear. Attempted to charge for each bag $60 EUR for each piece. Considered a tennis bag a sports bag and charged me 50 EUR for it. Counter person was unclear on how I can pay for the baggage. The sports bag had to be paid at a different counter at Athens airport. I had to ask for a supervisor because we were at the counter for 30 min and were within 15min of flight departure. Supervisor had to escort us to the gate to make the flight on time. On the return, declined to connect itineraries to get our bags checked through from LXS to ATH to LHR. Declined to charge us one fee per bag. 18 EUR per bag from LXS to ATH and 40 EUR from ATH to LXS per bag totaled over 200 EUR for the family of four for baggage. Inexperienced and rude staff all around. I hope to never have to fly them again."
Pros: "Short and service was good. Was not delayed."
Cons: "I only had an hour and twenty minutes on my layover. Which I though was plenty of time. When I arrived in Athens, everyone was put on one customs line which was over a few hours long. The guys in front of me missed his flight and I only made my flight by cutting the line and running to the gate. Very unprofessional."
Pros: "Only drinks served. Short flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "They charged us 40 euro per suitcase, it is not a budget airline, the ticket price was already skyhigh for a short flight"
Cons: "Aegean canceled my flight the day before and refused to help me book a new flight on a different airline."
Pros: "Arrived quickly and safely."
Cons: "Nothing bad to report was a brief flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Everything else was awful. So unorganized."
Pros: "It was nice trip tomorrow I am travelling back, then I conclude full reviews."
Cons: "I bought my ticket more than two weeks ago, yet I was told I was placed on standby because "It's a pretty full flight." No explanation was given to me other than that. When I was finally assigned a seat and was one of the last ones allowed to board, I was assigned a dreaded middle seat! I could understand this treatment had I purchased a ticket at the last minute, or if I had missed my flight, but when I had already paid for a seat more than two weeks earlier? Unacceptable."
Pros: "From checking up to boarding was perfect. Everything was on time.very smooth landing. Airline staff was well cooperating,"
Cons: "First checking bag was expensive (35$) for solo travelers,"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful. Also kind and sweet with my almost 2 year old son! Thank you!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "With Ryanair even if you break your leg during your trip and you’ll need an emergency trip back home they will make you pay a double seat (2 tickets because you have to stretch your broken leg) + 50€ commission on that second ticket. A 3€ for a small plastic water and of course a physical screaming/aggression from their staff while you are on a wheelchair. Thank you. Always a pleasure. You never surprise me."
Cons: "Get more organised. There is no point checking the passports on the plane door when they have already been checked at the gate, especially when people are waiting in the freezing cold to board the plane."
Cons: "Not much was good about this flight. I had to pay an extra €55 because I couldn’t check in online 2 hours prior and had to do it at the airport. The flight itself was a sales pitch with every few moments the flight attendants offering things to sell. I’ll try not to take Ryanair again."
Cons: "Ryanair website did not work properly for check in and I was charge 110euro extra upon arrival at Athens airport - myself and my fiancé are very disappointed. We arrived at the airport 2 hours before our flight and we were told we could not complete our check in process as it was only available online. The flight had delayed 1 hour and we still payed 110 euro. The crew had very rude attitude. This was the first time flying with Ryanair and it was a complete disaster. I believe it is unacceptable to pay for something that it was not my mistake and I except to receive a response from you soon."
Pros: "Most uncomfortable seats I have ever been. The Thames train link seats I took to St Pancras was 10 times better. 49 minutes late departure from Athens and not a single word of apology. The crew onboard was friendly."
Cons: "You figure..maybe say we get some compensation for the delay?"
Cons: "No service. In order to make up the low fare they force you to buy their services-food, lottary, seats- and because they pay less at the airports , they are last on the list for take off and landing."
Pros: "though the plane is small the process of boarding is smooth & efficient"
Cons: "seating is small."
Cons: "All was poor the way your stuff talking in Greece extra charging it's so shame for your company"
Pros: "Getting to my destination safely and getting the heck off their plane!"
Cons: "Trip was Athens - Rome. We had an issue trying to check in online in Greece; it told us to bring our passports to the agent at the airport. We arrived at the airport 2 1/2 hrs before boarding time. After waiting in line the agent told us the check in was closed and we had to pay 55 Euros each JUST TO GET OUR BOARDING PASS. It’s paper with a bar code on it! And we had an issue checking in online. You’re supposed to check in with RyanAir 2 hrs before the plane leaves and we were 4 mins late by the time we waited in line and got to the agent. Nope, still had to pay for paper. Not to mention we had paid extra for priority check in at book. Sure felt like just a cash machine for them. Charge for water too. Awful awful company. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Just the Flight crew...They were ok..."
Cons: "They kept saying my suitcase didnot fit the overhead compartment. I saw so many people with the same size bag...that didnot pay. I flew from Rome to Greece, back to Rome and, Lisbon Back And forth. I will think twice next time...When I fly to Europe next year..Flying Ryanair."
Pros: "very smooth take off and landing, passengers and crew were very polite"
Cons: "it is a very long walk in Athens from the main terminal to the Ryanair extension"
Cons: "Dishonest airline. Never taking it again."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not smooth landing"
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Every thing"
Cons: "Very good very grateful"
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: "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: "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: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charged a 62 euro for check in at the airport when they never informed me that I was supposed to check in online"
Cons: "to Whom it may concern. hope all is well, i was so disappointed to be charged 198 euros for the simple reason that I didn't check in and didn't add baggage. I can understand that this is a way to make money out of it but it was too much for it. I was okey about it until I went on the plane and had the cabin crew rushing at me preventing me to stand up to pick my phone from the locker above me for the reason that she's giving instructions... she had a good reason but after she finished it I tried to get up knowing that the flight was delayed for 35 minutes and still she didn't let me stand thought other people behind her where getting up... and she insisted to open my camera bag and get me the phone out of it rather then just giving me the bag, she smiled in a sarcastic way at the end... I asked her to put the camera bag next to my hand bag but she's didn't want to listen and she wanted to put it where she wants... not to mention the very bumpy landing and very fast he was almost run out of the runway, it was scary. I hope you'll read this thought u asked for my opinion Best g"
Pros: "Nothing!"
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: "That the airplane functioned correctly"
Cons: "The check in staff at the booth were rude to me and then short with others at baggage check in Athens. I saw the gate check in employee being short to guests as well. the company culture feels negative in my one experience. To compare with another regional carrier who seemed to have it together, Olympus, the Ryanair staff didn't appear to like their jobs. Also, Ryanair charges for seat assignments even when you don't have a preference. And the checked luggage size restriction is the smallest I've ever seen. I pack light but the bag I would have needed to have a free checked bag is tiny. Again, my money will go to Olypus Air the next time I'm in this region."
Pros: "Getting off the plane after we landed."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Nothing."
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: "They make fare look cheap but by time you pay for seat/boarding/check. In etc it's not cheap.... end to end experience check in, boarding and flight crew was miserable... never again"
Cons: "The extra cost for baggage. The flight was late but there was no announcement or explanation. The flight attendants talked over the loud intercom the entire time trying to sell products like perfume. One flight attendant kept bumping into me each time she walked by. The flight felt crowded. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. I fly a lot and this was my first and probably last time flying ryan air."
Cons: "Comfort: No reclining seats. No seat pocket. the back of the headrest is an eye-sore and it is in-your-face for the entire flight. They have their advertisements there and there' no way to avoid seeing their ads. Boarding: I had priority boarding, but I could see chaos taking place . More importantly, there was a lady with serious mobility issues (she was old, limping and walking slowly) and nobody from the crew even spoke to her or offered to help as she was getting on or off the plane. I had to tell someone from the crew to get a wheelchair for her after she exited the plane. Upselling: disappointed. They even sell you scratch gamble games, they charge for water during the flight. Ticketing: they charge to print your boarding pass at the airport. I usually get a printed boarding pass at the airport, but stuck to just using my phone. Can not believe this experience. What kind of a airline is this?"
Cons: "They close the self check kiosk and online check in 2 hours before the flight and charged me 50 Euro to check in. Scam."
Pros: "It was smooth, operated well and on time!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airport staff not professional, No customer service, the airline is not customer service oriented. I will never fly Ryanair ever!!!"
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!"
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 $50 fee to the cab to leave the airport, I balked. We considered just waiting it out in the airport; until midnight when they suddenly cleared the airport of all the people waiting for transfers and had everyone wait outside on the sidewalk (no seating or anything). I was in shorts and it was 45F. Sigh. Both going to and coming from Athens boarding was more like a riot. I was told it was because Italians were hot blooded. Whatever. I awaited bloodshed. My mother is 73 and we had asked for assistance with boarding. We waited as people filled the hall, surrounded the podium, and slowly were shoved on board, and still no wheelchair or assistance. We kept being told to calm as the gate closed and the departure time passed. Eventually a very nice man got mom loaded like cargo and it was kind of fun, but I didn't get the impression that the airport or Ryanair were a particularly well oiled machine. As usual, arm + leg for baggage. No free drinks and teh entertainment was a non stop cavalcade of sales from the overhead of everything from perfume to lottery tickets. If I had a long trip in a city and wanted to take a short jump to a Ryanair city with my skivvies in my purse, this is a great airline. It's crappy in every way, but cheap. But, if you want a suitcase or food or a seat that doesn't worry you about it's cleanliness and give you leg cramps for weeks, pony up for the extra."
Cons: "Be prepare for surprised$€£¥! 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: "The staff on board is very friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "Too many handlagguages of the people, so I needed to check in my bag..... and got it back broken! :-( the service for handling the replacement of broken bags is a kathastrophy!!!!"
Cons: "The damn fee they charged me when I was still an hour and 1/2 early to print boarding passes"
Pros: "nothing that sticks out, at all."
Cons: "I paid money to be 1st on/1st off. No one cared, and i was trampled Duty free ?? You have people convinced of that, in a flight from Athens to Thessaloniki?? Honesty?!! Water please: 3 euros, for a bit of water"
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...."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to strikes in Greece. I went to the airport to talk with a rep from RyanAir in person since they charge you to speak to in the phone and they were no help at all. They did not offer any type of rebooking. My initial flight was the following day at 6:15am. The strikes were called off and my flight was reinstated but I was sent an email after I went to sleep so I missed the original flight. I went back to the airport and was refused help to rebook on a new flight because it was my fault that I missed the reinstated flight when I was contacted by email at 10:30pm. I had to book with another airline at a much costlier expense, but they were much more pleasant and accommodating and even moved me to an earlier flight at no charge. i understand the strikes are out of their control but their customer service was terrible."
Cons: "I asked to have my ticket moved up two days which it was for a flight that wasn't full and was flying out in a hour but instead of using me to fill a seat and use my old ticket to sell they charged me a fee to change the date which was more than I originally paid for the first ticket then I had to pay for baggage wasn't included in my ticket like other airlines do. I was not the only one another guy at the counter was being charged extra for something stupid. He also stated he would not be doing business with Ryan Air again. I also will not recommend them to anyone. My flight was an hour late departing and we never were told why when I asked I was told don't worry about it in a very rude tone by the Flight attendant. During the flight it was more like a sales pitch over and over being asked if we wanted to buy refreshments instead of them being provided like other airlines. They also tried to sell me make up and perfume lastly they bothered us about donating to charities. It was a 1020pm-1120pm flight I would of loved to sleep or relax with it being so late not be hounded for money."
Pros: "The price of the ticket."
Cons: "Everything else. The seats were the smallest I've flown in a very long time. The boarding process was chaos. The flight attendants spent more time trying to sell us perfume than they did providing any type of service, such as a beverage service. In fact, they charged money for beverages (a lot too!), as well as pretty much every other aspect of the flight experience. How does it make any sense to charge you money for checking in for your flight at the airport if you have to visit the check in counter either way? Really crappy airline, I would only fly them or recommend them to someone who is also trying to pinch pennies wherever they can."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Chair does not decline"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Extremely poor organization at the airport checkin kiosk. Not enough staff. Huge lack in instructions and assistance. No proper lines at all. Tickets are cheap but one piece of luggage to check in is very expensive. Can't even get a cup of water for free on the flight. It may be a low fare, but the stressful experience is absolutely not worth it. Will never fly them again."
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"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. The way you have everything set up online for luggage and in flight is set up to extort us for money. All I did was pay 150$ for luggage that wasn't that heavy and constant hounding to buy stuff in flight. Never using rush air again."
Cons: "Lack of customer service understanding that i did check in online but i was not able to retrieve my boarding pass due wifi problems at airport. I was just charged and told it was policy. They were not helpful just confrontational. I am going to be contacting ryanair directly to complain. Very unhappy with the service i received."
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."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "I did not know I had to print my ticket before hand or they would charge me $55 euros . I thought if I would check in before the time the flights were to take off they would print if for me at no charge ..I tryed to check in on the machine at the airport but I could not figure it out cause there was no enter button on the machine. Then I went back to ask for help and they did not know how to use it either ."

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: "Everything."
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: "Delayed and slow"
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."
Pros: "Everything"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My name was listed twice on the iten. Didn’t bord."
Pros: "Once on plane rest was quick"
Cons: "Airport"
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: "Flight Delayed"
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: "Flight attendants on the plane"
Cons: "The check in agent was one of the meanest people I have ever met."
Cons: "The ticket explicitely says luggage allowance is 23kg(50 lb). When we arrived to check-in the airline refused to honor it and said allowance is only 15kg. They made everyone pay €3 per each kg "overweight""
Cons: "I did not board my return flight to Athens with Sky Express because the flight never showed up. I had to pay out of pocket for another flight with a different airline to get back to Athens. While I was waiting to hear any updates regarding the flight status, the company provided minimal details about the status of our flight and spoke in a condescending manner to concerned passengers that had flight connections in Athens. I was told my flight would be reimbursed but I have no confidence in this company's management to expect reimbursement. I will warn other customers that this airline can cause great grievances and inconveniences. The company's service was atrocious and frankly unbelievable. If one pays for a plane ticket, one should be provided adequate service in a timely manner. I'm forgiving about delays but the plane never came."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Booked the flight with Hahn Air two months in advance to make sure everything went smoothly as it was a special trip for my 12 year old son and I. When we got to the check in counter we were told our reservation could not be found!! Even after I spent over $400USD for our tickets to Santorini. Thankfully, Olympic air had a flight later in the day and we were able to salvage our vacation. I had to spend a lot more money for the new tickets probably because it was last minute. Do not use Hahn Air systems to book your flight-you'll be left in the lurch with added stress and possibly a spoiled vacation."
Pros: "Sole cabin crew was very nice, polite. Seats were relatively comfortable with just enough legroom for a tall person. No food, no entertainment so left as 1-star (not because it was bad, just that it wasn't there for a 50-minute flight)."
Cons: "Unavoidable delay in flight due to air traffic in Santorini was full, so delayed by an hour."
Cons: "If you arrive in Athens on an international flight and are heading to Santorini, you must collect your bags, proceed through customs and then journey to a different area of the airport for domestic check-in. . Hahn's service was exceptionally slow, with only one window. if possible pay for your bags online. I wasn't able to find the option to do so. Airport fee to check 2 average size bags was 70 euro and required us to wait in another line just to make the payment. We gave ourselves 2.5 hours between flights and barely made the boarding for Santorini. Flight is approx 35 minutes. Service was good and seats were comfortable."
