Cons: "Better entertainment for an 8 hour flight. Take under consideration that tall guys can’t be squeezed in for 8 hours.Give some space to people who really need it"
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The boarding process need improvement. The sits are very tight."
Pros: "Quick passport control Friendly staff Short waiting time to board"
Pros: "I loved the upgrade to business class. It was private, spacious, and very hospitable."
Pros: "Nice breakfast treat and chocolate is always appreciated"
Cons: "Not a specific complaint about this flight but boarding in general is not smooth No online check-in that I could find."
Pros: "flight left on time as schedule and the flight staff was absolutely courteous."
Cons: "The boarding process is very uncomfortable as the passengers are asked to board the plane without any specific order, regardless of where they’re sitting, instead of boarding them by groups."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Service was perfect Food was incredible Movies and entertainment high level"
Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "they did not put our special meal request for the 1st leg of our journey .. it was only 2.5 hours flight.. so its okay,.. but generally not a good thing...experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."
Pros: "Crew was amazing—efficient and kind. Loved the seat space"
Cons: "Nothing. All good"
Pros: "The best landing of a commercial aircraft I have ever experienced in my 74 years and in half a century of flying across the globe, took place in arriving at the Madrid airport with this Aegean Airlines flight. I had to ask the airline hostesses the names of the pilot, and they were two pilots flying"
Pros: "Good on business class was amazing and the staff was always ready to help with any questions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice and because of that the airplane was not as clean as it should of been"
Pros: "Ground crew and cabin crew were very helpful and efficient"
Cons: "Better organization during boarding would be good. People all stand around in a mass blocking others access to the boat ding pass control terminals."
Pros: "I did not make this connection due to delayed first flight and the most poorly organized and staffed airport!!!"
Cons: "Getting reimbursed!"
Pros: "Aegean is a fine airline overall"
Cons: "I had a carry-on bag, no problem on the flight from Madrid to Athens; but on the return trip they weighed the bags of some passengers, and when mine was over the limit -- which, however, was not indicated in the baggage restrictions -- they charged me 60 euros and I had to check it right there."
Pros: "The crew was nice, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There wasn't an autobus ready to take us from the main terminal in Athens to the plane on the runway."
Cons: "Boarding could have been handled a bit better. We were told our suitcases could not be carried on as they were too big, but we saw other passengers with luggage just as big but they got to carry it on. They didn't charge us for checking the bag which made the issue less irritating."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite"
Cons: "Apparently Aegean has stopped offering candy before take off. That's a pity as this was a nice (and presumably low cost) way of differentiating from other Star Alliance airlines. Food was mediocre and there was no in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was good. They were friendly and efficient. One did forget to return with a promised coffee but she apologized when I spoke of it to her."
Cons: "1. no air conditioning until the plane was in the air. It was STIFLING on the runway. 2. no power sockets to charge devices"
Cons: "Airport in Vienna was pretty disorganized. Several people from several flights had to be pulled out for additional screening that should have been done earlier. Passengers were confused and frustrated"
Pros: "Leg room was good. I am 6ft 2in"
Cons: "Seat bottom could have been better. I have a honey bottom"
Pros: "Airline met us at the plane to transfer us to our next flight to Tel Aviv! Excellent service and great entertainment on the flight."
Cons: "The food. It was okay."
Pros: "From start to finish, Sevdije was in great hands. She had to be in a wheelchair, and there were three connecting flights in countries where she doesn't speak the language. It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"
Cons: "small seats,no LCD for each one,food nor so good."
Pros: "Even on this short 1-hour prop flight they do have average service and pass out Swiss chocolate."
Pros: "I liked that the airplane was newer and comfortable. The crew and food was ok."
Cons: "There was no entertainment unless you paid for it. We already pay enough for our tickets to fly and entertainment should be included and not another added expense, especially for families that already pay so much for their flights!"
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Plane was cramped. Snack was not very good. Need healthy options."
Pros: "The food was very good and inflight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "They keep the cabin temperature too warm the entire flight. The seats are too stiff."
Pros: "Very comfortable business class. Amazing food prepared on board. Flight crew was very pleasant, helpful and professional. The business class lounge in Istanbul was amazing as well, 2 stories tall with food, drink and entertainment everywhere. Golf simulator, slot cars etc!!!"
Cons: "Check in process was more disorganized than most business class ."
Pros: "Athens to Istanbul is a short one hour flight, made very pleasant by the attentiveness of cabin crew"
Pros: "Crew. Food wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Late leaving. Waited an hour in Joburg before we could deplane. Cramped seat (normal on most airlines)."
Pros: "Crew efficient and tried to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "On the runway, the crew upgraded a family with two small toddlers. They cried on and off non stop and walked back and forth in business class. I pay for business class so I can have some peace and quiet ! Crew informed everyone that they switch this family seat due to the safety of this family seat. I understand they need seats but crew should upgrade another couple with no toddlers and maybe a star alliance gold member rather than give this family with the toddlers the upgrade. No one wants to pay for business class with 2toddlers crying and up and down aisle ."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines does not communicate with its passengers. If the flight is late (as both of ours were), you wait with no information as to when the flight leaves. The same lack of communication occurs once you on board. I joked to my wife that the cargo on a Fed-Ex flight is given more information. Arrived in Istanbul with a very tight connection. Airplane was not given a gate so we needed to take a bus to terminal. The bus dropped us just about as far from our connecting gate as possible. Since it took four buses to transport passengers, one could have been designated for US bound transfer passengers (who were all leaving from same group of gates) and taken us directly there."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic."
Pros: "I had only 70 minutes transfer time and had to spend almost all of that time standing in line to go through security after just arriving from another flight!! I ran to the gate and was the last person through before it closed. I asked about my two bags and was told they were accounted for. Hardly believing it but glad to at least have made it I boarded. When I arrived in Zurich, sure enough my bags arrived too! Was very pleasantly surprised!"
Cons: "Though no fault of Turkish Airlines, having to go through security after just getting off one flight was stressful even if it might have been necessary. Almost missed my flight. The security area is not properly designed for accomodating many people at one time and the officials (actually two cleaning personnel) who did not speak anything but Turkish were manning the entrance. Even when I showed them my boarding pass they just rudely shooed me away!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. We were served beverages and a tasty (by American airlines standards) sandwich on the less than 1 1/2 hour flight"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, late and somewhat disorganized."
Pros: "Nice to have room to spread out. Amazing that a staffer in Greece managed to quickly rebook us on a different flight due to delays and the fear of missing our connection! The best!"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. The movie system or user interface was clunky - nice variety of films but hard to find them and choose them."
Pros: "Great crew, decent food, plenty of wine and other drinks, on-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Uncomfortable cramped seats, USB port on seat-back video display does not charge a connected device."
Cons: "I was stranded in Dublin after being rerouted by Lufthansa and they were no help at all"
Cons: "Multiple technical issues on each leg of the flight for both airlines. Took 1.5 hours to deboard the aircraft on final leg of journey"
Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! I booked it online but in reality, it wasn't what was advertised. There was a problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so"
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Delayed departure resulting in missed connection. 2 hours in lineup and ‘service’ from Lufthansa. Rebooked through Zürich with overnight there - had to find own hotel as they said all the ones on their list were booked. Will not be using this airline for a long time ( they lost our luggage for 4 da"
Cons: "The workers at Lufthansa can learn to communicate with one another so that people don’t miss their flights. First flight stayed on the runway for an hour with no explanation for the delay. This caused us to miss our connecting flight, which clearly could have been avoided. Pathetic professionalism."
Pros: "Food was good (not pasta!), crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed (again!). There was no desert with the food."
Pros: "The red wine was good. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Unpleasant boarding experience: While my carry-on item was well within the Lufthansa guidelines, the lady in charge of boarding insisted that it was too big and did not allow it in the cabin. I have used the same bag in previous Lufthansa flights without any problem. She sarcastically told me that "I am not Americanaki" - a derogatory expression used by those in Greece who consider the Americans naive."
Pros: "the crew were very good"
Cons: "sitting all the way back of the plane next to fat lady sorry"
