Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very friendly."
Pros: "On time. Check in was very easy."
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."
Cons: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing wrong, but not outstanding, either. It helps to have no one in the middle seat, but it would have been nicer to have slightly more comfortable seating, and a bit more privacy."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"

Pros: "Food / movies"
Cons: "Comfort/ staff"
Pros: "Unexpected food/snacks that were provided.Good crew and the plane was on time."

Pros: "On Board Service"

Cons: "the flight was delayed, so I have arrivede later and was told that I should have been there for the original time..."

Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Pros: "Quick and easy- no problems. We had drink service and a yummy croissant. Flights attendants were really nice and spoke great English."
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good legroom in economy, excellent meals."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth. The crew was friendly and attentive. Even though it was a short flight, we each got a piece of Swiss chocolate."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room."
Pros: "I am very satisfied and I will recommended it to my friendships"
Pros: "It was okay. No complaints. I appreciated that I was given a seat near the front to run and make my next flight."
Cons: "my ticket was changed and messed up and could be due to language and understanding, I ran a lot to get to my flight and had to go back and forth between the check in line and ground force and wait out of line until a resolution was found."
Pros: "Flight crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Delay in BCN for an hour"
Pros: "the food was delicious, the movie selection was great, the seats were comfortable, the plane was chilly but they supplied us all with nice warm blankets, and I prefer it be cold over hot on the plane any day."
Cons: "The line at the check in was quite long. Luckily I had only carryon"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Engine shut down juast as the safety briefing started but all was good when it started again. A light meal would have been better than yoghurt & biscuits. Staff were very helpful."
Pros: "Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas."
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "The crew members were professional and we really appreciate their high quality of service. Love the food and we enjoyed the wide selections of entertainment that was provided."
Cons: "On ticket it said time between flights was 1hr 25min, but as soon as we got off the plane we had to RUN through Zurich airport, where 1000 other people were all trying to funnel down the single escalator to Passport Control, to get to our gate. Then we had to wait in another Passport Control. TERRIBLE and stressful. The actual flight was fine."
Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."
Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"
Cons: "No USB charger in seat"
Pros: "The planes were clean and in good repair. The staff was well trained, polite, efficient. The food was excellent. Our entire experience with Swiss Air was the best in ten weeks of travel we have completed this year."

Cons: "Nothing, we would have stayed in this airplane longer...."
Cons: "priority luggage arrived in SFO about 30 mins after regular luggage"
Cons: "I arrived to the airport within an hour of boarding time. I wasn't told the gate to my plane until 8:30. When I arrived to the gate there were no employees to speak to and it stated boarding time was 8:35 we didn't board until 9! It was just scary and confusing for someone flying alone in another country. When all the other confused flyers asked simple questions the employees at the gate were annoyed and rude."
Pros: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and accommodating."
We ordered assistance during the transfer in Istanbul, but did not receive anything
Pros: "Amazing crew. Great food"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was definitely above average."
Cons: "Crew were very impersonal. Didn’t seem to care about the needs of the passengers."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines always provides a great combination of price and comfort. The team on the flight was very helpful and the entertainment system is superb."

Pros: "The check in was with a smile and a good service"
Cons: "The terminal was separated from the duty free and it was prostrating they all the shops were an available including the tax free refund."
Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Pros: "Everything was great but I particularly liked the meals."
Cons: "Our trip to Europe required three legs: Boston to Ljubljana, Slovenia; Slovenia to Barcelona; and Barcelona to Boston. Each leg required a plane change in Istanbul which added a lot of time to the trip and resulting jet lag. We knew this going in but were motivated by the very low fare. I don't think I'd do it again."
Cons: "Tried to cancel due to flooding in home and they would not refund my ticket. Neither would airfare.com, whom I purchased the ticket through."
Cons: "The crew offered no help or solutions when I was denied af security and had to return to ticketing to check a bag. They refused to check the bag and caused me to miss the flight, and offered to rebook me for over $2000. Shady. Most unhelpful agents. You'd just better hope you don't have an issue, because the customer service is some of the worst I've experienced. Won't fly them again."
Pros: "No air conditioner. Sweated like a pig the whole 13 hour flight"
Cons: "No ac"
Pros: "crew, food, entertainment was great. Seats were terrible"
Pros: "After we missed our connection flight because of a delay in Barcelona Turkish took care of everything until we were on the next flight home. It includes shutle to a different airport with an escort, dinner and tickets."
Cons: "there was a long delay and we missed our connection. The staff was very helpfull but everything happened so slowl. When we finally took off the food service was very slow and also the trash collection. The very tasty chocolate punding arrived as a guice"
Cons: "No miles. No notification either. Seems very arbitrary"
Pros: "The food is imazing"
Cons: "40mins rotar"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very courteous. Aircraft was clean, nice and spacious. In flight entertainment was very good"
Cons: "I waited on line for over an hour until we found out our flight was cancelled indefinitely. There was no communication and no way to rebook. I had to book a different flight on my own through a separate airline to get back home in less than 3 days."
Pros: "The staff and crew were very helpful and provided excellent service throughout the experience. The food makes one rethink all the bad stereotypes of airlines food and one does. It go hungry."
Pros: "Overall it was a smooth flight except for few minor issues."
Cons: "It seems as thought several of the hostesses may have been trainees so the food service was slow and, they ran out of food on some trolleys and sometimes forgot orders for passengers."
Pros: "There was a snowstorm in Istanbul so we got diverted to Antalya. I am sitting in a hotel room. If someone from kayak could let me know when my flight to Dhaka will happen it would be greatly appreciated. My email is email@example.com. Thanks"
Pros: "The crew was nice They handled the delay well so we didn't missed our connection afterall"
Cons: "1. We had to wait 2 hours in the plane 2. there is no way to use the monitors (not a personal monitor)."
Pros: "the plain is good and there is a big space for the legs. the crew is helpfull"
Cons: "1. There was a delay on the flight from Barcelona to SAW (Turkey) of 2.5 hours. Turkish Airline didn't update us at any time what and why is the delay problem . Due to this, we missed the connetcion flight to Tel Aviv.They took us to another air port(Attaturk) in Istanbul (1.5 hour driving) . They gave us only food vaucher and no compensation for the overall delay(7 hours!!!) 2.Icoud not order a Cosher foo at all TK flights web sitr. WHY ??? 3.the Entertainment is very poor. only one movie and no subtitlse .Music is wired."
Pros: "The Price!"
Cons: "Would have appreciated different breakfast choices."
Pros: "The entertainment options, food, toiletry bag"
Cons: "Stuardess service is very poor. For a 13 hour flight I would expect to have more than 2 beverage visits. Also, I ended up taking my requests to a first class stuardress since the ladies in coach didn't respond to me. I was also appalled to have my connecting flight delayed for over 24 hours without proper notification."
Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Most seats were broke, staff seemed grumpy, 3 out of 4 flights didn't have individual TVs, staff couldn't handle unruly passengers, etc. Won't be using Turkish Air anymore."
Pros: "The food was very good. The movie selection was outstanding"
Cons: "I showed up roughly an hour before the flight, as I had no bags to check in. The employees at the check in counter had already cleared out, so I was unable to get my boarding pass. Then when I called in, they were extremely unhelpful. They gave me no alternative options, and instead only listed out a ridiculous list of fees and said I they could get me on a flight a different day for a total cost that was greater than what I had paid for the entire round trip ticket. I asked to speak to a manager and they refused to connect me. I ended up buying a one way ticket home with another airline. I will not fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future, and I would definitely not recommend them to anyone. Just beware of this service if you see them listed as the cheapest option."
Cons: "Terrible Airline- cancelled flight and rescheduled long flight leg for another day without notice"
Pros: "They treat economy like you're in first class. They literally give you a menu of food. The entertainment is extensive and free. It's also likely your flight will be less than half full. Tons of empty seats to lay down and sleep."
Cons: "Boarding was behind and slow and very crowded in be area."
Pros: "فى رحلة الذهاب فقدنا شنطة وكان الفطور جدا ضعيف لأ يلق بطيران وصلنا مطار اسطنبول تعامل سيئ جدا من الموظفين. هناك مشكلة في الدولة صحيح لاكن تعامل جدا سيء"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour"
Pros: "Service was awesome top to bottom"
Cons: "The business class cabin was hot on both flights. That seemed to be a common complaint among the passengers we talked to. The Economy cabin seemed to be set quite a bit cooler."
Pros: "I really like the fact that they still prepare food for their passengers, however, the quality of the food was less than average They prepare you with the eye mask and the slippers, and a thin sheet of blankets for longer flight, which was really nice. The seats are comfortable, and there are a larger selection of movies and songs to choose from which were also great. The flight was relatively stable. I didn't ever realize that we took off, maybe i was too tired to notice, i don't know."
Cons: "The boarding was really slow, it was not on time. The food was less than average, but better than not have any. It was hard to find assistance. The flight seemed a bit old, because we weren't able to turn off our light which caused some inconvenience."
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't find the reclining in seats"
Pros: "Really amazing service."
Pros: "food es very good, service also awesome,"
Cons: "very dirty plane."
Pros: "Fast, efficient, confortable, nice flight attendants, good food."
Cons: "The guy sitting next to me who was upset that I had to go to the bathroom."
Pros: "Everything, starting with the complementary sweets they give you at the beginning of the flight"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "all the time same food and we believe the menu should change. the voice of the anounce and music is too much , it is bothering."
Cons: "This was not a business class seating arrangement"
Pros: "Everything was good on this flight, crew, and food."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Better food than most airlines. Appreciated the kit."
Cons: "They ran out of non-beef options for dinner. Flight attendants weren't the friendliest. No usb charger. Seats weren't very comfortable."
Pros: "It was fairly comfortable & the staff was pleasant. The initial leg from BCN to Frankfurt went very smoothly."
Cons: "The flight 2nd flight from Frankfurt to Boston was significantly delayed for a variety of issues, and ( though not really within Lufthansa’s control) the security at Frankfurt was easily the most disorganized & poorly run situation I’ve ever encountered. There was almost constant interruption for announcements at the outset, with information that wasn’t necessary & actually made waiting for an extra hr + more frustrating. I give the crew/staff credit for doing their jobs well enough that it still managed to be a decent flight in the end."
Pros: "Really friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and entertainment screen."
Pros: "The pilot pointed out the Alps as we flew over. It was an early flight most were sleeping and we would have missed it had he not mentioned it."
Cons: "Nothing all was good"
Pros: "The crew was really wonderful. They went the extra mile- pun intended- to make sure me and my family were comfortable. They were especially kind to my daughter. The plane was also great, very clean and well equipped. The 8 hours from Munich to JFK flew by very quickly."
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Cons: "Frankfurt Lufthansa ground staff gave us bad advise and sent us on a 2 mile walk for nothing."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "The infotainment system could be better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and then the sound went out out completely after 2 hours of use. Also the airbus model still use the outdated 2 prone headphone and I was not able to use my noise canceling headphones."
Pros: "The boarding was simple and easy. The crew was polite."
Cons: "The entertainment touchscreen is right in the headrest and everytine the person behind me wanted to do anything I could feel it. It was very irritating especially when I was able to fall asleep."
Cons: "It would be nice if the seats had more leg room. Staff was super nice. Food is not bad"
Pros: "Nothing except the crew were very efficient and helpful"
Cons: "Economy seats. No recline. THAT IS NOT BUSINESS CLASS - This is a joke! Putting an empty seat in the middle does not make it business class. Mis-leading seat image when selecting seats. Shows Buisness class large and 2X2 and Economy at 3x3. When you get on the plane it just a one large economy plane with a mark in business "Extra space for you in the middle seat". Food was cold food - no hot food on the whole plane - only hot coffee. I am not paying 4 times the amount to get economy seats that I can get and most probably get lucky and have an empty seat next to me. STAR ALLIANCE IS REALLY GOING DOWN AND LUFTHANSA IS THE WORST. Will never travel Lufthansa business class every again."
Pros: "A regional flight. On time and clean."
Pros: "Standard German efficiency. Neither good nor bad."
Pros: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"
Pros: "Got the exit row (great)!"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed but retrieving the bags took a long time. Short flight but food wasn’t appealing and there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Barcelona airport is beautiful. The Chechen in staff was helpful and arranged wheelchair assistance for all legs of my flight"
Cons: "We requested extra leg room seats on the bulkhead. We did not get them which was not a big deal on this leg of the flight but on the flight from Frankfurt to SFO which was 10+ hours, was miserable"
Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"
Pros: "Breakfast & ease of boarding."
Cons: "Business class with normal seats and empty seat in the middle is not the same."
Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old plane! There was no personal air comditioning. I was dying. So hot."
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Pros: "The staff was courteous,friendly and helpful. The Plane was on time. The crew took time to tell us what we would be seeing as we flew, it was a beautiful morning for the flight until we experienced overcast skies in Austria- Germany. The staff did their job well with minimal comfort disruption."
Cons: "I would take this flight again. The only thing I would change is unloading procedure of walking down stairs on the outside of the terminal, then loaded on a stand up bus for a rather long ride to the terminal. It reminded me of London. But, I guess it is something you have to deal with."
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Pros: "Flew back last weekend in February. Transfer between plane from Barcelona in Frankfort (LH hub) to flight to Boston extremely chaotic. Masses of passengers all attempting to transfer to US bound flights. Insufficient staff from both Lufthansa and German border control to process or even organize the masses of people flying that day. Mob scene at transfer points. Not up to LH usual standards. Quite surprising as their passenger volume data should have alerted them to impending problems. Our flight was delayed over an hour for takeoff so USA bound connecting passengers (whose luggage was already on the planes) could be processed."
Cons: "Chaos and disorganization. Masses of connecting passengers unable to get to their flights anywhere near planned boarding time. Takeoffs delayed substantially."
Pros: "The crew was great. It was only a short flight, so we only got a c0okie, but what a cookie!! Big and soft and super tasty. And the coffee was quite good. Germany has never been known for its superb coffee, but this coffee was very good. None of that fakey airline taste to it at all. Could easily be the gourmet coffee you'd serve at home. You DO serve gourmet coffee at home, right? And water and juice and then more water and more juice, all served up by very nice people--not just good service personnel, good people. Baggage pickup was quick and smooth--I travel with my cat, so pickup can be rocky. Nothing to it here."
Cons: "I liked everything, so am leaving this box completely blank. Completely, I tell you!! Stop reading this!!"
Pros: "Very nice crew, clean facilities, not too uncomfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight and the food was gross! Give option of pretzels or snack over a bad sandwich."
Pros: "The crew are friendly and generous"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."
Pros: "This was our first time flying with Lufthansa and it was our favorite airline so far!! The flight attendants are why our experience was so great, they are so kind and helpful"
Cons: "They charged 40 Euro for baggage. On the charge again? Why this was not on any agreement International flights one baggage suppose to be free"
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was flown through Air Canada, so this review doesn't reflect on other hosts. However the flight was the worst service I've ever had on an airline in every category."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour after we had boarded the plane. Sat at the gate the whole time. Crew started to pass out juice, water and coffee. You know when the coffee comes out, you aren't departing any time soon."
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "Timing was on schedule"
Cons: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Cons: "Systems were down. And it was chaos getting the boarding passes. Nothing was communicated to us until over an hour waiting in line. My daughter was miserable waiting as everyone passed by us, bumping into her and not apologizing."
Pros: "Though our flight was cancelled due to inclement weather in Boston, I cannot say enough about the ticketing agent at the Luftansa desk. she was so incredibly helpful in rearranging our flights to get us where we needed to be as soon as possible. She spent so much time with us and on the phone and was very patient."
Pros: "The service is good."
Cons: "Noises obnoxious passengers drinking standing up in the isles for long periods. Hanging on other passenger's seats. Very rude and clearly didn't care. Flight attendent tried to get them to sit and hold it down but it had little effect. They were part of a larger group so they wanted the flight to be a social event."
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Older plane, uncomfortable seats. No gate boarding. Required a shuttle to plane parked on tarmac."
Pros: "fast, efficient, on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Me ubicaron en el último asiento y no se podía reclinar."
Pros: "The airline staff for Lufthansa were kind, courteous, and respectful! As mentioned, haven't flown in 30 years, let alone, never overseas, and I couldn't have had a better experience; especially being in economy seating! Would fly with Lufthansa again in a second, and recommended them to friends on Facebook!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The crew woman that assist us in Barcelona Airport counters for the check-in was really rude asking very personal question that I still don't understand why and questioning our passports without any reason. My partner and I felt very uncomfortable and that was a totally unnecessary situation. After that everything was totally great during the flight."
Pros: "It was definitely on time, service is good and it was a very nice flight."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Nice aircraft."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "But leg room."
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."
Cons: "Very light and friendly crew"
Cons: "rip off at boarding. very intellectual airline. we had a piece of luggage for two. total weight 8.2kg. I have been flying with this case for more than 10 years without any problems. aegeian found out that he 1.5! cm is too long. we would have to pay 50 euros. I go to court with this bill"
Pros: "Price, availability of their ticket and they deliver a good product and the flight was on time. Excellent crew"
Cons: "Overall this trip was a very good experience. I love Aegean and use them as much I can"
Pros: "Modern, clean airplane with spacious seating and attentive crew."
Pros: "Crew is really friendly. We ran into one of them afterwards when our metro from the airport broke down and she helped us understand what was going on (we didn't speak the local language)."
Cons: "Boarding was slow, but it's a cultural thing at the departure airport."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats comfortable. Served candy and snack on a 20 minute flight. Amazing. Definitely book a flight rather than ferry from Mykonos to Athens."
Pros: "Flight was the best I've taken in a long time - comfortable plane with plenty of room between rows friendly crew and tasty food"
Cons: "Check-in was ridiculous it took almost an hour to check in even though there were not many people in front of us and boarding took a very long time"
Pros: "The seats very tightly spaced and did not reclnine"
Cons: "The flights war 2 hours late and the boarding was totally disorganized."
Pros: "i try to cancel the tickets for 3 weeks now.... please help"
Pros: "Nothing was outstanding, I do like the hard candy treats they hand out prior to flight."
Cons: "It was such a nightmare at the gate. We were standing in line and then were shoved aside by other passengers and the attendants did nothing to help keep order when boarding. Also we had paid to upgrade our seats to extra leg room and they had given our seats away to a handicap person."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable plane"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Check-in counter mentioned that our ticket did not include checked baggage, but she only charged for one bag (will be checking on my ticket and discussing with Aegean's corporate if I bought the correct ticket with checked bags). Boarding was easy and the crew was very nice and helpful throughout the flight. I was glad that they served a small meal - food was good...we're not talking about a restaurant meal. Seats were good and just wish there was some in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Plane got stuck on the runway for 45 minutes citing some air congestion reason over Cyprus!!!! we where in Lebanon. Comfort is low for the prices you pay"
Pros: "Wonderful staff and service. Food was good."
Cons: "Plane was a little late due to airport backup"
Cons: "they lost my bags flight was overbooked"
Pros: "The staff was polite."
Cons: "For some reason my boarding pass wasn't scanning. They took me to the side and had to do it manually even though everything was correct."
Pros: "crew was pleasant once on board"
Cons: "Very last minute posting of gate and then was late with no explanation. They were a bit rude at the gate to some fellow passengers and I feel it was because they were heading to Albania."
Pros: "Evrything was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on that flightes"
Pros: "Nice aircraft , excellent crew"
Pros: "Everything was fine, even above expected for low cost airline. Nice crew, free drinks."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better."
Pros: "The CREW was very friendly and aircraft wasn't bad itself."
Cons: "Boarding and ticket takers. 2 people checking folks in. It took over 30 minutes! @ 5 in the morning, I didn't need to stand in line for half an hour to start my day..."
Pros: "Air attendants were nice"
Cons: "Long queue for baggage check. Food was below average."
Pros: "They give you a hot meal, even on a short flight."
Cons: "Their dimensions for carry on luggage are smaller than the industry norm. As such, bags that most any other airline would consider carry on, must be checked for 40 Euros on Aegean."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "That we survived"
Cons: "The crew had no control over any situation. The flight attendants were abrupt and clearly didn't want to be there. I have never felt so much anxiety on a flight due to a flight attendant jot being able to do her job with competence. I will avoid this airline at great lengths for the future.not to mention it was the most uncomfortable plane and the pilot may have still been getting his hours to fly? Not sure."
Pros: "For an affordable carrier, they provided multiple complimentary beverages and a tasty hot light meal. Flight attendants were marvelous: kind, helpful, and accommodating. I would definitely recommend them as affordable and pleasant."
Cons: "It was almost impossible to understand the announcements in English. The seats are tight, but that's true of most flights."
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."
Cons: "Everything was bad delayed and unprofessional team."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours and there was very little information offered as to what to expect. I was grateful I did not have a connecting flight as surely I would have missed it. The gate agent seemed to be completely lost and at one point started boarding and then had to ask those that had boarded to deplane. The seats were rather uncomfortable to begin with but then add to that being in the last row next to the toilets and the galley AND with crew members stepping on the side of my seat to reach supplies in the overhead bin without warning."
Pros: "Services, friendly people, on time, comfortable"
Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Could not get a juice or water ignored me. No movie option"
Pros: "The crew was generally ok. Governed again by Aegean's old fashioned standards where crew has to be female almost fashion models, but this has nothing to do with the crew who was very professional and courteous but with the hiring policies of the company instead. The food was generally very well cooked (but ... see negatives section)"
Cons: "The flight was from 2-5am (local destination time). The company/captain/crew made the decision to have the lights on during the whole flight. The service of drinks and refreshments had to stop for some minor turbulence (I've had much worse where service was uninterrupted). We had to wait until 30 minutes before landing to be served food. It wasn't clear if this was the company's way of apologizing for the interruption of service. They served us a full course dinner with baked pasta with cheese and beef at 4am. I found that to be quite random, disorienting and inappropriate. There was no entertainment options provided on flight"
Cons: "no words to describe how bad it was - the main problem was the operated company at Israel"
Pros: "The staff in Santorini were wonderful and we are very grateful they fixed whatever had gone wrong with our booking."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport for our initial flight (to Athens) and were informed that "the system" had cancelled our flights from Athens to Dubrovnik, so the very nice woman in Santorini re-booked us. We arrived to Athens and had to exit security and then re-enter security because of the gate we were to fly out of. Then, the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, and we only received 3 announcements each saying there would be "information" at a later time."
Pros: "The service in overall was good. Since this is consider to be a low cost fare, my expectation were not high."
Cons: "My Luggage did not arrive. Since I have been in a motorcycle tour, I had expensive and valuable accessories and I also bought new things. For almost 48 hours, I have been very worried that I will need to go through an expensive law suite. The whole issue was cause because of overbooking. I was asked to be on a waiting list with my luggage. When I was boarding I specifically asked the local crew whether my luggage is on board as well and I was answered definitely "YES"."
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "Served food to all on the flight. Awesome!"
Pros: "Gate staff are able to deal with things"
Cons: "Check-in can't process baggage charges, so they send you off to an office across the airport, just to find that the payment processing office is closed for a couple hours in the late afternoon. Why don't you just set the baggage check in people up to process a credit card transaction?"
Cons: "Doesn't mention on kayak that the flight was low-cost flight and that we need to pay extra for luggage. we had to pay it on the check -in on airport and it was so expensive."
Pros: "I am from Chile and I really appreciated the tasty red wine offered with dinner."
Cons: "Everything was ok. Staff are nice"
Cons: "They should board the back rows first so that people are not jamming the isle, like they do in Brazil. The boarding ran 15 minutes late."
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "The fact the passenger behind me needed me to sit up straight so he could eat mad me feel bad. I suppose entertainment is not a big thing nowadays with all the choices we have with smart phone's and tablets, so not so much a big deal. But with space itn is a big deaI. I reclined my seat and Icould feel my seat on top of someone's knees. So i sat up and struggled to sleep. I suppose in a sleepy haste I reclined my seat. I was awaken to a gentleman asking me to sit my chair up so he could put his tray down to eat his dinner. I felt horrible."
Pros: "25 minutes flight was awesome! Pilot take off and landing was smooth."
Cons: "Luggage at baggage claim took longer to receive than the check in and flight combined"
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: "Not a very organized airline from what I can tell. Check-in line took forever and was only staffed by 1 person. Although, this is generally true of most things in Greece (sorry to say) as the companies are simply not as efficient as those in bigger countries."
Cons: "You cannot charge someone 200 euros for a flight then dump a 40$ unnecessary bag check fee on them, it's quite deceptive. I will never be flying Aegean again."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. That's about it."
Cons: "Some of the tiniest most uncomfortable seats I've been on. I did not realize that Aegean was a budget airline going to a third world country (Greece??!). Flight was late but they pretended that it wasn't (45 minutes)"
Pros: "Nice service easy flight"
Cons: "Hot, ridiculously warm on the plane"
Pros: "Stewards dis perfect job"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Hi am happy"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "You give no room for passengers to sit comfortably. We are crammed in the airplane like sardines in a can. No legroom, small seats, etc."
Cons: "Buses to and from the plane. One driver left us in a full bus waiting for 20 minutes. When we arrived in Vienna, there was no bus to pick us up. We had to wait in the plane until one showed up."
Pros: "Why the 3 hours delay?"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Good flight , bad flight delay and luggage."
Cons: "To be on time"
Pros: "Friendly crew and ground crew worked VERY quickly and efficiently to deal with a broken plane and switch us all rather seamlessly to a replacement plane. Impressive."
Cons: "My wife and I were separated by six rows. Unacceptable!"
Pros: "Crew was good and entertainment was great."
Cons: "They charged me 200 euros for my bag and I wasn’t told that I couldn’t bring 1 luggage with me."
Pros: "Crew was positively and smiling."
Cons: "Flight was 44 min late. Could have been on time"
Cons: "Seats very hard and uncomfortable in economy"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. Despite booking business class flights 3 months before departure date because we had to attend a very important wedding. Swiss Airlines overbooked the flight but didn’t warn us in advance. This meant my husband was forced to pay over 8 thousand Euros to charter a small private je"
Cons: "So That we could attend the wedding early the next morning in Oldenburg. They then had the audacity to void our return flights. Luckily I spoke with a lovely lady at Lufthansa, explained the situation and she re-instated return flights for an admin fee. Will never ever use Swiss Airlines again."
Pros: "It was better with the earache, plane felt cleaner, the crew was more friendly and attentive. Didn't feel as dark as the first flight."
Cons: "The Star Alliance flights aren't that cheap. Comparable price between Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS and Austrian. Lufthansa gives you food, and has friendly service. SAS gives you coffee and tea. On Austrian and Swiss I didn't get anything. For same price range and same alliance, that is a point I keep in mind. Now I mainly try to get onto Lufthansa flights (or Turkish Airlines which is my favorite). Even on Aegean, I got better food, and the magazine was better, plus there were some monitors to track the flight. Austrian feels cheaper than the others. That is the main point I didn't like."
Cons: "Flight was late departing Cairo Changing flights from Cairo to Amsterdam was scheduled at 50 minutes. I asked the male flight attendant about changing airplanes, said our new gate was right next to our arriving gate. He said no problem. He failed to mention we had to go through customs and security again, and walk almost a Kilometer in the process. Fortunately they held the Amsterdam plane because many passengers would have missed it. I did not appreciate the lack of information from the flight attendant, however holding the plane was a godsend."
Pros: "Service was good and the crew was courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Online check-in did not allow me to select my seat. It was already assigned and didn't let me change it Boarding was later than scheduled and caused my connecting flight at O'Hare hectic This was the first time that I had ordered Kosher food and I would never make that mistake again, the meal was okay but the sandwich was awful and had no taste!"
Pros: "The seats were very nice, and I found it very pleasing that everything was colour coordinated. (the small details in red and the rest in gray). The flight attendants were so happy and upbeat, it lifted your mood as well! I believe that we left a few minutes early, as boarding was completed early. And thefood? Mind-blowing for airplane food. I really enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the flight. Sometimes the announcements were very slightly difficult to hear (accents and whatnot,) but you could still tell what they were saying."
Pros: "The crew worked very hard to make sure we're comfortable. Water, snacks were provided often during flight."
Cons: "Difficulty getting to flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly and afficient onboard service. Fast boarding. On time departure."
Cons: "Croatian Airline checkin service was good but was made to check in carry on. However, baggage clerk was extremely hostile and wanted to charge us for two bags for which we had prepaid. Would not accept our evidence of payment for the two bags. Finally accepted her mistake but Forced to pay 90€ For the extra bag. Ripoff!! Other airlines (Vueling, Air Europa) checked same bag as courtely, did not charge. First and last time flying Austrian."
Pros: "Excellent flight Excellent food"
Pros: "I like everithing was great . Thank you ."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff on the plane and in the airport. Economy Seats are more comfortable than some other airlines. Food is good."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, flight was on time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight of 12h 20min?! I was offered the appetizer (pretzel or biscuit - both of 14gr of product inside). This is unacceptable - overseas flights have to have some snacks No eye mask or ear plugs, nor socks for economy class Outdated entertainment"
Cons: "The worst airline, customer service ever"
Cons: "We were almost three hours late on arrival. Being at VIE airport after midnight with no buses going home is no fun."
Cons: "flt was delayed 2 hours due to "employee meeting""
Pros: "Everything OK"
Cons: "Arrived 5’ later, lost train"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at the time we were suppose to board. We had to find another flight via Istanbul and got to our destination 6 hours late. Won't use Kayak again."
Pros: "Seating like every other airline in economy. There was NO baggage charge for economy and the drink trolley offered wine and beer, at no cost, on our 1.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
Pros: "Super friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, on time"
Cons: "Crew's attitude for any request was snobby and harsh"
Pros: "Spacious aircraft. Polite crew. Even good food. On time."
Pros: "Snacks in board included in the price. Super nice crew team. Unlike British airways where prices are higher, on longer flights there is no free refreshments and crew staff were unpleasant."
Cons: "Very small and old plane. Uncomfortable seats. Hand luggage bigger than small backpack not permitted on the board."
Pros: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Cons: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."
Pros: "IT WOES HAREBELL. 4 HOURS BEFORE THE FLIGHT THEY TELL NE THETA WE DOESN`T HAVE PLIES ON THE FLIGHT. THE MAN IN DESC 377 GAVE TO ME BIRDING CARD TO GET G. IN STAND-BY. THER FLIGHT 599 NOT ON THE BORD. AT THE HEAD OFFICE OFF THE OSTREIN CCOMPANY IN GAT G TELL TO WAIT. HALF HOUR LATER STILL THE FLIGHT NO ON THE BORD AND I RAN EAGEN TO OFFICE OF OSTRIEN END NOW THEY SAD IT`S MESTEK AND I IN GET F . NOW WE MAST MAKE THE SECURITY CHECK OVER AGAIN . WE RAN TO GET F TO FLOOR DAWN . IN THE END...WE GET BORDING CARD WITH SEPARATED SETS."
Cons: "RUDENESS INSOLENCE RATTLE, RUN-AROUND MISTAKE, OR EVIL"
Cons: "Boarded via stairs, requiring going down stairs to the tarmac, then up the boarding stairs, carrying our bags."
Pros: "Pillows were great, blankets clean and comfy, food was even good, staff was extremely helpful and polite.."
Cons: "nothing, it was a great flight from beginning to end"
Pros: "So I had to fly to Munich, and rather than flying direct on terrible United, I took a connecting flight via Vienna. Flight was full yet still departed on time and even arrived early. The seat was comfortable and flight went very smoothly. Food served on board was perfectly edible. Disembarking also went without problems. The flight staff even accommodated the requests of a particularly nasty Russian family seated behind me even though they were total jerks. I was very impressed with their professionalism."
Cons: "Nothing. I will make a point of trying to fly via Vienna in the future. Airport is very pleasant and well run."
Pros: "Short flight from Milan to Vienna. Easy check in -- which at MXP is always a plus and a relief, Crew was very friendly, attentive and focused on the passengers and their job. A smile is worth a million dollars!"
Cons: "I loved it all!!"
Pros: "Catering and service was superb. While linen. Course by course on China, no tray service. The food was exquisite. The wine was acceptable, mid range, with very generous pours in Riedel glassware and always the offer made of would I like anything more? The seperate coffee menu has to be experienced to be believed, basically, it's an authentic Vienna see cafe experience at 30,000 ft."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was fiddly and the offerings meagre compared to the vast libraries found on other carriers, but it was sufficient. More a quibble than a gripe from me. The noise cancelling headsets were good quality noise cancelling, and comfortable. I can't wear some other airlines headsets at all and use my ear pods with an airline adapter jack."
Pros: "The crew were very nice"
Cons: "Toilets could be cleaned more often"
Pros: "Short flight and the crew was attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Loading of the bus to the terminal was slow only 1 bus was available."
Pros: "Check in and gate agents in TLV were top shelf pros, fast, friendly and to the point with a smile. Crew on board followed through as well."
Cons: "Food was crappy and there was no entertainment on board at all. Also, crowded seating."
Pros: "Sleep at the airport with kids from 7:pm to next day 10: am and be first time and lass time"
Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
