Pros: "Roomy seats and good food"

Cons: "Terrible customer service. Rude and unhelpful. They refused to do a spelling change on my name and forced me to purchase a second ticket. The flight was 25+ minutes late taking off due to lack of organization at passenger check-in. It really is a shame that Agean is pretty much the only option to Istanbul (IST) from Athens."

Cons: "I’ve flown Aegean 3 times in the last month and there flights have been late all 3 times."

Pros: "Wider than average seats and a nice meal."
Cons: "Plane was not near the gate & we had to ride a bus to the plane."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 2 hours without having any announcement nor a reps to tell you what was going on or when is the new departure time. The aircraft is very small, old, narrow seats, delay in boarding and unboarding."

Pros: "Cabin crew was good."
Cons: "Delays are unavoidable. But better communication during delays would be helpful"

Pros: "Crew very helpful and happy to assist Good communication"
Cons: "Late boarding Late gate change Too many people with large carry on bags that wouldn’t fit into storage bins"

Cons: "Connection flight was not accessible because of the arrival delay. Airline staff did not help at all."

Cons: "THe food"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "It had business class and we were told it did not when we booked"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew were good. Flight deck announcements were appreciated."
Cons: "Getting on a bus to the aircraft is challenging with 3 young children and carry on. We couldn’t get a seat. Could not eat the croissant as I’m allergic to chocolate. I’d had no breakfast and that was the only option."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was bad delayed and unprofessional team."

Pros: "The boarding experience at the horrible Santorini airport ruined it or us. I wish Aegean had provided us with more instructions about what to expect and when to arrive so that we didn't there so early and stand outside in the heat of so long."

Cons: "They overbooked the flight so we were delayed an hour . The flight was very bumpy an I couldn't hear any of the announcements. The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing at all."

Pros: "Clean, smooth, on time"
Cons: "Not interesting"

Pros: "I loved everything :-)"

Cons: "Tehran station staff need more trainig and need to be overseen"

Cons: "Overall very disorganized."

Pros: "Served Snack during Red eye without any drink"

Pros: "Good plane and crew."
Cons: "Bathroom facilities at the airport totally filthy and out of order."

Pros: "They served a meal!"

Cons: "This flight was delayed by an awful 8 hours. We were stuck at the airport through the entire morning and missed half our day in Santorini. There was very poor communication between the airline and us so we were utterly frustrated at the experience."

Pros: "Nothing particularly."
Cons: "I didn't like that they don't seem to honor the benefits afforded to Star Alliance Premier Members. Not at check in, and not at boarding. They just do their own thing. If they don't want to follow the Star Alliance rules, then they shouldn't be part of Star Alliance. It's that simple."

Pros: "25 minute flight. Day trip from Athens."
Cons: "20 minutes late boarding."

Cons: "40 minute delay due to traffic at destination airport. Not Aegean's fault. Pilot kept us informed. Very nice job."

Pros: "Friendly staff, movies on the plane"
Cons: "The checkin area at the airport is poorly staffed and disorganized which resulted in a feeling of crowded confusion and stress. A greeter for agean airlines directly at the entrance would significantly improve this, as would more check in kiosks (two and only one worked) and a more linear system (you have to go backward to check your bag before going forward)."

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."

Pros: "Accommodating staff"
Cons: "Chaos in the airport (where to wait in line, online check in vs drop off line etc)"

Pros: "This was fine."

Pros: "Good food and beverage service on a short duration flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a little cumbersome, having some reading materials would help."

Pros: "Flight attendants were really nice, seats on a plane were comfortable and the views from the plane were amazing"

Pros: "Did not feel like a budget airline. Great service."

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "No clear signage on line formations Boarding pass kiosk was broken only one working CHAOS No one in authority assisting families or anyone else."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"

Cons: "If it is possible to change the timing of the departing flight from Beirut."

Pros: "Aegean is an amazing airline that takes you back To flying in the 90's the right way. It hold their staff to be poised and very elegant. The crew staff is friendly and welcoming. From great dinners to delicious snacks its the little details that captivated me and really took me back when flying was luxurious! I would recommend Aegean as a first choice for flying."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence, 30 mins delayed, no drinks offered. Nobody came around to collect trash"

Cons: "The staff at the check in counter really hassled us about our bags and made a big deal about the airport in Catania, Italy (we had just flown from there with Aegean) and the differences in what they had told us and what we were being told now."

Pros: "Prompt , on time flight sched"
Cons: "Havas customer service reps are not warm. Just doing their job, no.extta mile...can be rude at times"

Cons: "When I arrived to the airport they told me my ticket had been canceled with no explanation. After 40 min they got me on the flight. I am still not sure exactly what the issue was"

Pros: "Nice plane, good crew"
Cons: "Boarding process"

Cons: "Was very hot during the flight."

Pros: "The plane was clean and the flight smooth."
Cons: "The boarding process was frustratingly disorganized. We had no idea if we were in the right place or why boarding was delayed."

Cons: "Airport was super busy, not very well marked. Took so long we almost missed our flight."

Cons: "My brother in law and I both had carry on luggages that look big but fit in the box. After being asked to do the size check, the agent asked him to check his bag instead of carrying it on but not mine, even though his is within size limit and mine clearly looked bigger. We have no doubt that there was some profiling going on; he's Latino. That sat with us the whole ride and now will probably never ride with Aegean Airlines again."

Cons: "I don't like that it keeps on delaying. I don't like the shakiness of the whole flight."

Cons: "I had an economy ticket and I looked it up on line and from what I could tell it included 1 free checked bag. I did NOT have a Go Light fare which clearly did not include a bag. No where in my paperwork did it say a checked bag was NOT included. They make it very confusing. I would have purchased baggage on line and instead had to pay full price at the gate. Very disappointing that it was not clear to me regarding what specifically my ticket did/ did not include."

Pros: "Aegean Airlines is nice. 2 hour flight they showed a new release movie and served a full lunch complete with the best chocolate mousse. Airlines in American could learn something from there hospitality."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great flight attendants. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. No announcement, just a bum rush to the bus and over packed us in said bus."
