Cons: "EXCELENT SERVICE BOTH ; COUNTER & IN AIR:: GREAT FOOD ; LOVED THIS AIRLINE"
Pros: "Would fly again! Food was excellent (warm meal on a 2.5hrs flight!), got an empty seat to use for my baby, they didn’t break her stroller or car seat, they didn’t lose our luggage."
Cons: "Seating little tight (especially if seat in front of you reclines)"
Pros: "Crew were v good"
Cons: "Comfort no entertainment, small seats..."
Cons: "We boarded late and had to sit on the runway for quite a while. Ended up leaving more than an hour late."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket I made sure there was one piece of luggage allowed. When I checked in they said there is no baggage allowance and had to pay usd 69. I feel I have been duped. I should get a refund."
Pros: "Cabin crew was good."
Cons: "Delays are unavoidable. But better communication during delays would be helpful"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the staff friendly and did realize we would be served a full meal for a two hour flight from Athens to London; unexpected and appreciated."
Cons: "We didn’t board the plane at the times listed, it was running behind."
Cons: "Seats were empty and the flight attendant didn't let me set !! Why should I pay almost 50euros for one bag ???!!! No more Aegean for me. Thanks for nothing"
Pros: "The crew were very professional and polite on board and the food was excellent"
Cons: "The baggage machine at Athens that my friend used seemed to be faulty when the same bag was checked on another machine it was kilos lighter. But the ground staff at that machine a man was very rude to her."
Cons: "Connection flight was not accessible because of the arrival delay. Airline staff did not help at all."
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."
Cons: "Professional but not friendly crew. Very uncomfortable seats both fights. It was like there was a big lump that hit my tailbone, both flights. This is what you get when you use frequent flier miles with United Star Alliance."
Pros: "Friendly staff and excellent onboard service"
Cons: "There was a slight delay with the boarding process. We were bussed from the terminal to the plane on the tarmac and were held on the bus for several minutes while maintenance workers sorted things out with the crew. We were finally allowed to board the plane after the maintenance crew had left. The entire plane from front to back had a terrible smell, as if the sewage pipe had burst and liquid/waste flowed everywhere. The smell may or may not have anything to do with the maintenance crew on board and delayed our boarding. No explanation of the smell. Good thing it was a short flight from Athens to Naples"
Pros: "Once we landed in Athens, knowing that our next flight would be taking off in 5 minutes, we thought ther was no way that we'd make it. Instead, they had someone waiting for us when we got off of the flight and someone to run all 11 of us through the airport to the plane. Aegean held the flight because they knew 11 people from the Santorini flight were coming."
Cons: "Once on the plane, we ended up sitting there for another 30 minutes, even though it was already 20 minutes late waiting for us. When I asked the stewardess whether that meant that our bags were going to make the flight she said she'd have to check. She never came back. I then asked a second girl and she said that she'd have to check and she never came back. I finally asked again before landing and she supposedly went and asked someone and came back and said yes they made it. Got to baggage claim - no bags. We had another flight to catch back to the states, so we didn't have time to figure out the situation. We spent the next three days frantically calling Aegean, to no avail. Their customer service either wouldn't answer or would tell us to call London Heathrow lost and found, who wouldn't answer. Eventually, Delta found our bags and had to work with Lufthansa and their own boots on the ground at LHR to find the bags and get them back to us."
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."
Pros: "On time. Space. Great team."
Pros: "Personnel were great"
Pros: "Departure delay and change of gate at last minute. This has become a frequent occurrence even though they usually make up some of the time in flight. I would appreciate more timely information about delays."
Pros: "I loved everything :-)"
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!"
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."
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: "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."
Cons: "If it is possible to change the timing of the departing flight from Beirut."
Pros: "Very good"
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."
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: "The friendly and capable crew"
Cons: "The seats lacked any semblance of comfort. There was little to no padding in the seat cushion and the fact that it didn't recline at all and the seats were crammed so close together my husband had no knee room, made for probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on and that is saying a lot!"
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"
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."
Pros: "Friendly crew, in time flight"
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 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: "Quick service. Although the gate operation was late in getting started. Plane was ready to go. Not much waiting around once on board."
Cons: "No one at th gate or information at the gate to indicate the flight about 45 minutes before boarding was to commence. I thought I was at a the wrong gate."
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."
Pros: "Flights were exactly on time. Planes clean and crew professional"
Cons: "Firos airport is a third world country. It took well over an hour to check in, drop a bag and go through security. It is completely chaotic but they get everyone on board and out on time."
Pros: "Fast boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible, Santorini’s airport was horrible, the flight was delayed, no one knew what was going on, there is no organization with boarding it was a mess"
Pros: "Quick flight, arrived early! That part was great!"
Cons: "Boarding is a joke. Everyone hoards the gate and there is no organization. Recommend using boarding zones. Italians have no idea how to make lines."
Pros: "The crew did a fanstastic job!"
Cons: "The seats werent the best and my seat didnt have a window."
Cons: "Charged full fight fee, don't ask customers pay over size luggage penalty minutes before departure"
Cons: "High baggage and other fees that are not publicized. Web site just says check bags start at 15 euro, actual price was over 50 euro."
Cons: "Very high baggage and other fees that are not publicized. Web site just says checked bags start at 15 euro, actual price was over 50 euro."
Pros: "The only saving grace to this whole experience was the woman at the check in counter who was friendly and made small talk while checking our bags."
Cons: "Honestly, I would consider myself well travelled but after this flight I wanted to rule out air travel from our future plans. The take off was bumpy, fast and uncomfortable. Handling the turbulence was unbearable and I had a full blown panic attack on the flight. I couldn't understand a word of the English announcements each time we hit turbulence. I felt unbearably sick but couldn't bring myself to get out of my seat. There was no food, no entertainment, and definitely no entertainment. I hope to never fly Volotea again."
Cons: "the app is that that great, it gets stook. Also, they don't have any chance to change or re-schedule any flight."
Pros: "Boarding was like any other boarding, it went fine, but then we had to sit on runway for about 30 minutes or so. Not a huge deal. I keep myself busy on computer so flight went quickly."
Cons: "Flight crew was not happy and they didn't even pretend to be. Seats were not comfortable at all and mine even had a huge tear in it so it just bugged my back side the entire flight. Food was not good at all! Salad smelled moldy. Oh yeah, and I ended up paying extra for my bags that were exactly the same as my husbands but he was not up charged. Between the c crew and the constant selling and up charges, I would rather pay more for a different company."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "Have to carry any carry-on luggage up the metal stairs in any weather, up to plane. Same thing after landing."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Boarding process stinks. You have 2 groups but board them all at the same time well let's say start to board by having us wait outside for 20 minutes in 90 plus heat. No water then stand on a hot bus for another 15 or 20. If we want a water after heat stroke it's 2.50"
Cons: "I booked an afternoon flight on Volta. They changed me weeks later to a morning flight. I told them I wanted to cancel my earlier flight and preferred a refund instead. I have never received credit for my cancellation."
Cons: "Will never fly them again"
Cons: "Worst airline I've ever experienced, avoid at all costs"
Cons: "Missed our connection they did not accommodate at all Wanted to sell us another flight the next day My brother made the flight and him and his girlfriend had to pay 140 euros for carry on and boarding pass THEIR LOW PRICES ARE A SCAM BAIT SND SWITCH"
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "About 50 minutes late, hard landing, and worst of all they called us for boarding and we went out of the semi-comfortable terminal and STOOD in the HOT sun. Our plane hadn't even landed. We stood out there for 40 minutes. Voltea is even a worse version of Spirit Airlines"
Pros: "I cancelled the trip because in reading the fine print, I found the cost of checking a single small bag almost as much as the cost of the flight itself. Cancellation was accepted but took some effort to do it."
Pros: "A flight es eventually arranged"
Cons: "There was zero communication from Volotea over 12 hours of being stuck when a flight was delayed. For a long time I thought the flight was cancelled. Now that I am trying to seek compensation via EU guidelines they are similarly evasive and not helpful."
Pros: "Helpful and smiling staff , seats have good leg room , time of departure was accurate"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "minimum fuss from beginning to end, and no bombarding by emails. their staff all handle carry-on luggage discreetly even when slightly over sized ... Compliments to Volotea."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, planes are old, no entertainment and boarding process was unorganized"
Cons: "Due to delays we missed our flight. I emailed and got no response. Tried calling. Office was closed on Saturday. Went to their desk and no one was there. I would like to be reimbursed. I had to then pay for two tickets on Aegean Airline totalling $400.00"
Pros: "Flight was fine once we got going but one staff working made for a long long line and a half hour delay. Staff were excellent though."
Pros: "Personnel were helpful, polite and spoke English as well as many other languages."
Cons: "Volotea is a low cost airline that charges for early seat assignments, printing boarding passes, luggage and drinks on the flight. There is a service charge added to everything. It isn't as low cost as it initial appears. Beware"
Pros: "the plane were very old and we felt scared since there was turbulence and the plane showed an unsafe one..."
Cons: "Check in started at 9:05 and boarding was at 9:25, we arrived at the airport (which has 1 gate) at 9:10. There was no one at the check in counter until we asked the security guard for help. At 9:30, the Volotea attendant came back and said we were late and missed boarding and it would cost another 180 euro to get on the plane!! Beware!!! -They have a 20 kg or 44 lb weight limit instead of 50 and will charge you an additional 60 euro per bag of over 44 lbs! -Print your own boarding passes, they charge 20 euro per passenger if they have to print it at check in. -There are fees all over the place, it is a SCAM!"
Cons: "The Volotea website was very poorly run and thus, we accidentally booked the flight on the wrong date, due to the way the calendar was loaded on the site. We entered the correct date, but somehow we still received flights for 5 days after the date we needed. We tried to change them at the airport, and after being sent to 2 different ticket counters, we ended up paying an additional $420 to get the flights we needed. Therefore, each flight from Athens to Mykonos was over $400 each. It was ridiculous and I will NEVER fly this airline again."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and professional."
Cons: "Seating is a bit tight. But ours was a short flight."
Cons: "The next flight they had to my destination was 3 DAYS later. Therefore, I had to purchase another three tickets with a different carrier and got NO credit for the missed fight with Volotea. BAD Business."
Pros: "Everything in the plane felt new, crew was friendly, efficient."
Pros: "Price, direct flight"
Cons: "No frills, no beverage/snack service, seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Volotea flight was good and I would fly Volotea again but checking in at the Santorini Airport is Chaos for all airlines Santorini Airport needs to organize the check in area with better barriers especially for the very long line of psgrs lining up for security Without barriers it's unclear where the line ends and where those joining the line should go therefore causing a lot of confusion and people trying to bud in"
Pros: "We printed the boarding passes a week prior and we were ready to go! However Volotea emailed us 24 hours prior to tell us some information had changed and we had new boarding passes. We were worried that we had to pay extra as we were already traveling and could not print the new boarding passes. It was no problem! We downloaded the app and the crew just scanned the app boarding passes. It was a huge relief."
Pros: "The cabin crew don't know their job and don't care about security! They separate my husband and I from our children. They changed our seats, because they 2 people previous to us were too elder to seat at emergency exit. So we got stuck seating at emergency exit and away from our children! Who will put the emergency mask on my children now in case of emergency Volotea airline ?! Learn your job as flight attendant!"
Pros: "Errrm...that we actually got to Palermo alive, that was nice."
Cons: "Kind of sneaky with the hand luggage, you may well have the guidelines in small print somewhere, but you really should allow people to check their bags in online before the flight, as opposed to paying 80 euro per bag, so 160 euros for two bags that didn't even weigh 10kgs each. RyanAir would have been able to fly us the same trip for that alone, with bags! Then when we were boarding, both of our seats were taken - the flight attendant said "Welcome to Italy". So, that's our story. In a nutshell, overpriced, and didn't get the seats on our boarding passes..."
Pros: "price was great for our flight, otherwise it was like any other flight, nice attendants, nice clean plane, on time"
Cons: "Plane delayed for 2 hours. Small, cramped airport(Santorini) with no working men's restroom."
Pros: "on time inexpensive and nice flight attendants"
Cons: "attendant in the check in was horrible. not nice, rood, when we tried to ask questions at the end told us "bye" and called next. prices are high for luggage check in, the standard size of the hand luggage is very small and not fair. plain was very very old. overall, bad experience."
Pros: "Simplicity and no headache."
Cons: "A poor todler who was crying because his ears were hurting. Flight attendant did everything she could."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it, it was a horrible experience and I will never suggest this airline."
Cons: "I didn't like service, extremely rude and not helpful. They wouldn't let us check in early, they scammed us into paying $30 each to print out ticket. $40 for a bag!! And to top it off with their extremely rude service I had to go wait in a miserable line at the most in organized airport I have ever been in to pay this outrageous extra $100 complete scam and worst airline ever!!!"
Pros: "The flight was so smooth I forgot I was on a plane. Great landing, too."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "Left us standing for a huge time in front of customs and arrived late to boarding gate. Ridiculous.y small measurement boxes for carry on luggage which would not hold standard carry on bags. This dispute the plane having full sized overhead bins that easily accommodated the bags. Forced us to pay $60 a bag under the pretext that the bags would have to be ch caked. But they didn't, we just carried them on and there was plenty of room. They were rude and unreasonable and let lots of people through without the charges after they simply removed items from their bags and carried them a few feet before putting them back. It was just a shake down."
Cons: "Give us a snack or drink"
Pros: "Our family of 4 flew Bordeaux to Split; 3 of 4 bags arrived as scheduled. Volotea DID find and deliver the lost bag on the 7th day. So all was happy in the end."
Cons: "The flight was delayed , no communication, no bus arrived at the gate to take us to the plane , no communication , no boarding process whatsoever , no communication , no apology offered , no in flight catering offered free or for purchase , a complete joke of a flight , my worst ever and I have flown all around the world including both poles !"
Cons: "They nickle and dimed us on everything including printing my boarding pass when in the end I didn't even need it. The. They were over an hour late They they didn't even serve us a drink on the plane. Worst airline I've ever flown with. if I thought I'd ever get it I'd be demanding my money back."
Pros: "plane was clean enough"
Cons: "horrible check in process, horrible. there was a line out the door of the airport. one lady checking in an entire plane. the pilot also seemed like a novice due to the incredibly scary landing. The last 15 minutes of the ride was VERY turbulent and the landing was VERY hard."
Pros: "Short fairly cheap flight"
Cons: "They needed more staff to check people in. Flight was delayed because we were still boarding. Was a cluster."
Pros: "The price was very reasonable. Despite delayed takeoff and boarding area lacking clear instructions, flight boarded quickly and made up most of the lost time. Other flights and trains in Italy seemed to be delayed too!! (not operated by Volotea)! I did pay extra in advance for baggage and printed out boarding cards before leaving USA for Italy. Familiarize yourself with the rules. Ate a sandwich on board, good enough and friendly flight attendants."
Pros: "The boardin personnel was unbelievably rude..they didnt let us board our very small luggages despite the plane was half empty. When we insisted they started laughing and threathen us of letting us miss our flight,with the attitude ignorants display when they are given a bit of authority"
Cons: "Change boarding personnel"
Pros: "Budget carrier. No frills. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "At least provide water."
Pros: "Easy boarding prep was and bag check! Flight attends and crew were very pleasant!"
Pros: "I couldn't tell you. They were basically non existent."
Cons: "Easy jet lost my bag. For four days. I had to go back to Naples airport and find it myself"
Pros: "4 hour delay."
Cons: "On time. At least vouchers."
Pros: "The crew was kind"
Cons: "The baggage boarding process. The boarding process in itself."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ELSE"
Cons: "Horrible boarding process."
Cons: "Too many delays with a lot of miss information"
Cons: "Queue too long in airport. Need more space"
Pros: "easy, no fuss boarding and flight"
Cons: "the queuing to have your bags scanned as you board your flight was confusing as there were 3 queues in the same space for flights leaving within 10 minutes of each other. Not a big deal, but someone explaining which queue to those at the back would have been helpful"
Pros: "It was a short and cheap flight."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Luggage space limited."
Cons: "No comp snacks or drinks I had these on Easy Jet from London to Prague!!!"
Cons: "Didn’t even get to take this flight due to our first EasyJet flight being delayed."
Pros: "The actual flight crew was pleasant to speak with."
Cons: "Despite online AND my experience flying to Santorini on the same airline, the boarding personnel at Santorini not only didn't communicate which gate until right when boarding started but inexplicably told me only 1 cabin bag was allowed and forced me to go back out through security and pay 60 euros to last minute check the bag. Also the seats don't recline in plane, there is no internet or movies on board, and no snacks or drinks are provided complimentary despite taking off over an hour late for an international flight."
Pros: "That I managed to get on the flight."
Cons: "That they were overbooked and 1 hour and 45 min late. All this time we were already sitting on the plane."
Cons: "Too warm in airplane at boarding and took to long to cool"
Cons: "They made us pay for our bag even though we only had one and it fit into the measurements. They said it was because it was full but they still made us pay 60 euros each. Making it a 120 euro more than it should have been. They also pretended not to speak English when we tried to talk to them about payment even though they spoke perfect English when they told us the cabin overheads were full. Will definitely be contacting kayak about this."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly"
Cons: "I didn’t like that you had to pay for snacks & water. Passengers were skipping ahead in line in front of those waiting to board"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and price was good."
Cons: "We tried to check in online but website wouldn’t allow us. When we arrived at airport we discovered that was because we were assigned standby status. At no point during the booking process did we receive any notification about standby status. This lead to a very stressful 90 minutes waiting to find out if we would make the flight."
Pros: "Airport restaurants would have been nice...without the overcrowding"
Cons: "Terrible automated check-in. Harried and worried staff. Extra costs. Invasive and slow security. Overcrowded airport. Ancient plane with too many tiny seats. Abrupt and unfriendly service."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"
Pros: "Crew were welcoming"
Cons: "Flight was full, noisy and one hour late"
Cons: "I found my luggage broken!!!!"
Pros: "Great price for a flight. Also, the agent at the ticket counter was very helpful."
Cons: "It wasn't clear that their basic fare didn't allow you to bring a backpack in addition to a carry-on bag."
Pros: "I like the ease of this airline"
Cons: "Landing was bumpy."
Pros: "Easy to book flights and know in advance what to expect. Was able to check in immediately after I purchased the ticket. I rated food and entertainment as a 1 as there was no food unless you bought it and there was no in-seat entertainment. These was expected as easyJet is a lower cost airline so just want people to be aware."
Cons: "Didn’t like being told just 30 minutes before flight which gate the plane would be boarding from. Seat was very uncomfortable (cushion needed to be re-stuffed)."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Hummus and Falaffel wrap. Additionally the personal appearance and attitude of the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Checking in for an EasyJet flight is always challenging because I travel predominantly on Delta(Sky Team) or American Airlines(One World) and I am Diamond Medallion or Executive Platinum respectively. I am allowed 3 bags at 70 lbs, however I am aware that most European Airlines only allow 23 kilos. EasyJet has lowered their allowance to 20 kilos causing me to have to repack in th middle of check in and move items over to my carry on. It is just a big headache and really puts a damper on the travel mood especially for the price of the tickets. Additionally the seats did not recline."
Pros: "The prompt staff"
Cons: "It was SO hot and when you're cramped like that, the temperature can make you panic a little bit. Did not get cooler in the air, and they made you pay for drinks!!! Even water! Nothing "easy" about this jet."
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "High price to check luggage"
Pros: "Crew was nice, and the wide aisle was a bonus! Overall it was an average fying, no problems!"
Cons: "I didn't love taking a bus to and from the plane but maybe that is fairly standard in Europe. I wish there was wifi/USB plug on the plane or at least tvs. I didn't have any food or see any entertainment offered so I cannot speak to that!"
Pros: "The inflight crew were caring wonderful people!!!"
Cons: "We waited too long in the line to check in (after we had checked in online). On our departure flight to Milano at the gate we were charged 60 euros for each of our bags, which was an surprise unexpected charge of 180 euros and none of our bags were over the weight limit. On our arrival flight we checked in online and paid an additional $5 euros each just in case we were over the weight limit (which we were not but we did not want to take the chance since Easy Jets Limits are less than all the airlines we fly with). No option online that said we had to pay for our bags again. Check in crew very unfriendly and rude... We don't like hidden charges, unexplained charges and being over charged. Please refund these bag charges. Thank you."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "It was delayed like the previous flight with easyJet to the holiday destination"
Cons: "The system was down and had to wait in line for a long time to get my boarding pass and had to rush through security to board on time"
Pros: "It got me to Naples."
Cons: "The flight was late taking off by an hour, we received messages that it was going to be late, but by only ten minutes. Even at the desk, a long line formed at the original boarding gate, before we were told that the gates were chaning to one at the other end of the building. Then made to queue at the gate for half an hour, then sat in the plane for an hour. Plus on top of that it was from Stansted which is the worst aiport."
Pros: "Its cheap on time"
Cons: "The ground crew didn't allow a carry on which was supposedly allowed"
Pros: "Didn't check in online before getting to the airport and could not get on my plane because they sold my seat. Agents didn't even try to help or care. Had to buy another ticket for full price so made the trip very expensive in the end. Not worth the discount!"
Cons: "Seats small, staff rude, paid 180 euro to check luggage"
Pros: "Rough landings on two flights. Long waiting time outdoor and the queue was not properly managed."
Cons: "The queue."
Pros: "Legroom was great Seats do not recline which means you always have plenty of legroom Boarding was civilised Crew were friendly"
Pros: "This was a one-hour flight from Catania, Sicily, to Naples. Boarding the plane, takeoff and landing all typical of flying these days. No food, water or entertainment was offered, typical on short flights, but we and our baggage arrived on time."
Cons: "Fortunately we'd arrived quite early to check in. We had acquired an additional bag to check in. I knew it was 47 Euro and when it was our turn to approach the check-in person, I had my credit card ready with our passports and boarding passes. The woman seemed put out that we had another bag and after several minutes of conferring with a colleague and filling out a form, she gave me the form and my credit card and directed me to another area to pay the 47E. This was on the other end of the terminal and involved another queue, more discussion, finally paying and getting another form to take back to the first woman who finally processed our paperwork, printed the baggage tickets and sent them on their way. BTW, we travel fairly light. I had a 24-inch roller and a small daypack on my back. My wife started wity a carry-on roller and a small daypack, but now at the end of our two-week trip, with purchases she'd switched her carry-on to a 24-inch roller instead. If I'd known what an insane system Easy Jet has, at least at Catania, I'd have tried to add the extra bag online the day before."
Cons: "Rude staff, crowded planes, stand by on a booked ticket , 3 hours late"
Cons: "The trolley I came with to UK was fine, but back to tlv they decided to charge me 45 pounds"
Pros: "A flight attendant worked with me to find the boarding pass on my phone, so that I would know my seat."
Cons: "I could not find my boarding pass on my phone, required because since Easy Jet will not print off and hand a passenger a boarding pass, the one on the phone must be used. One of the flight attendants assisted me to find the boarding pass. I really dislike that an airline refuses to print a boarding pass."
Pros: "Makeing up lost time"
Cons: "Time taken to board"
Pros: "Like? They ripped us off, so there's nothing to like."
Cons: "€70 per person fee for not printing a boarding pass 2 hours prior to departure. No JTR kiosks to even try doing this. The check-in was not avail' via the app. The Skyserv staffer lied to us about sending an email notice & SMS about this. There was ZERO flexibility by the Skyserv staff to enforce this horse$#;t policy, just a hardlined pay the fee or don't fly. Thus we had to double, triple the cost of our flight just to get to Athens. JTR is worse than flight terminals in Iraq & Afghanistan. The flight - who cares, they ripped us off, made our morning miserable, and we'll never fly RyanAir again."
Cons: "The airline only allows online checkin and didn’t notify us through emails until a few days before the flight when we’re already traveling. During international travel, we don’t check emails. We ended up paying almost $200 to checking at the airport. will not use this airline again."
Cons: "Checking bags was a disorganized nightmare."
Pros: "Punctuality, quick check in procedures."
Pros: "I got assigned to the seat I requested"
Cons: "I arrived early per their suggestion and was one of the first few people in line for baggage check in. I was told boarding passes were not free, they charge a fee but she would not do it right there. She sent me off to another window to pay, then I had to come back to this window to get my boarding pass, which had a huge line by that time. It cost me an extra 68.20€ and another 31€ for a checked bag. Definitely NOT the low cost airline they claim to be! The flight may be reasonable but they get you with ridiculous fees. I will never take Ryan Air again- they are crooks! Once they’ve sold you a ticket you are stuck having to pay the fees. It’s cagey business practices."
Pros: "Cabin staff was polite, the flight was short."
Cons: "The check in process is absurd. I did not have a chance to check in on my phone beforehand, so I waited in line to check in at the desk. At my turn, the woman behind the desk was annoyed with me for not checking in and told me I had to go speak with another office (though she did not clarify why) and then come back to her. The airport was small, so lines for check in, security, this other office, and those seeking food were all merged into one large group. This second office didn’t open for another 40 minutes so I was thankful I’d arrived early. Standing in line, those around me all figured out why we were there: this was the line to pay extra fees. Apparently if one doesn’t check in beforehand, there is a fee. Ok, I had a few euros left. Nope, it was €68.20 to check in at the airport desk. I took my receipt and went back to the first line, she printed me a boarding pass and I was able to get through security. The fee to check in at airport was more than the cost of my ticket."
Pros: "Crew was nice and apologetic"
Cons: "We waited over 1 hour to board. The airport was small and packed with sweaty people and delays. Seats were tiny and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing !!"
Cons: "Had to pay for not checking in 2hrs before 55 euros per person, After booking information there isnt clear enough notification asking for prior check-in. Flight attendants allowed anyone and everyone change seats before takeoff .. simply seems like Ryanair has no procedures and rules to follow... flight attendants look like they are on life support.. no smiling or kindness whatsoever... Seats were really uncomfortable, cant even recline the seats. Landing was scary. Budget of all budget airlines.. simply a joke and a waste of money ... vueling or easyjet is a 100 times better"
Pros: "I like nothing about this airline."
Cons: "No check in email reminder is provided. Had to wait in 3 different lines to print boarding pass, check in, and find out if your bag fit airline restrictions. We were charged 68 euro each to print boarding pass. The airports credit card machine was down and we were forced to go to an ATM and pay in cash. The carry on size restrictions are ridiculous. Your bag will be marked as too large (at a 50 additional euro charge) if it sicks out by 1 inch thickness wise, even if it fits into the box provided. Horrible experience and I will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they were not communicating with the passengers. They had us standing for an hour without letting us know they flight was delayed and you can’t find information online. Also it seems their goal was to charge everyone for luggage and the overhead compartments were pretty empty."
Cons: "As usual with ryan air it's all about the cash. Missed my flight because of lip balm and a baggage check and then when I asked for help. They basically did nothing. I will never fly with you again. Luckily managed to get a B.A flight for £95.00 the same day and Ryan air wanted £413.00"
Cons: "Customer service is really poor , the employees are not pleasant ,I got charge 3 times the price I booked my one trip flight from Santorini to Athens because I did not check in two hours before the flight, when I got to the airport in Santorini it was exactly 2 hours prior to my flight they would not accommodate because all they wanted was making money ,extra money. They saling products in the airplane throughout the flight which in my opinion is really cheap and disturbing ,especially I had a early morning flight. Overall the experience was bad ,maybe it was just with me ,but again that's my experience."
Pros: "The price of the ticket is really cheap and I keep that in mind when I review the flight"
Cons: "The boarding was tedious."
Cons: "My biggest complaint was the way they handle random seating. My husband and I were on the same record locator and had the same last name, yet he was in the middle seat in the front of the plane and I was in a middle seat in the back of the plane. What gives?"
Pros: "lower cost and nice staff."
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Seating were narrow"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "RyanAir is THE absolute WORST airline in the entire world!!! Ripped me off of almost $200.00! I will never ever use them again."
Pros: "Very orderly and on time"
Pros: "Actual plan ride was smooth."
Cons: "They nickel and dime you. If that's their business model, fine, but clearly state what fees are charged and outline how they can be avoided. My story is.... none of the "check in online" emails/reminders nor the actual check in process clearly outlines how to retrieve your boarding pass. We arrived at the airport and they made us pay €37 per boarding pass!!!!! Turns out you have to download an app to retrieve an electronic pass. Well, we didn't know that, and since we were in a foreign country whose airport had no WIFI, we couldn't download the app. We were traveling with friends who had carry on luggages. The carry on luggages were deemed carry on to our destination. When traveling back home, they were no longer deemed carry on and my friends were charged €60 per carry on bag. Ridiculous. In summary between check bag fees and boarding passes we paid triple the amount of th airfare."
Cons: "I tried to do the check in on my phone and it showed that i did it. But when I got to airport I found out I did not do correctly and needed to pay 50 euro extra per ticket. It was confusing and I had not been prepare to use internet too much on my vacation abroad. This made it very confusing and difficult to try and do emailing on my old phone. And Not something any of the other flight bookings I made required. Or had such a high charge for not doing. Why isn't just buying ticket enough? Why did I need to do an added checkin, with such a high cost. And the people at airport were not understanding or helpful at all. What a hassle and pain to spend same amount as ticket itself practically."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "This airline actually charged 62 Euros, this was to print a boarding pass--and this was after I was deliberately delayed in getting one and then charged another 62 Euros at the gate because they claimed my luggage didn't fit. This was after I watched the guy before me leave with his bag that didn't fit, and I had paid for priority boarding, which was what their site had suggested when I did the online check-in, which I was charged for. In all, I paid over 130 Euros in total in addition to the money I paid for the ticket. Dispicable!!! a real rip-off!!!"
Pros: "It was cheaper than others."
Cons: "They make you measure your bag about three different times and charge a lot to check. They also do not post this anywhere but the airport. THEY WILL NOT TRANSFER YOUR BAGS FROM ONE FLIGHT TO THE NEXT. You have to go out, collect the bags at baggage claim and repay for your bag to check it onto your next flight. They call this "point to point" I call it an annoying scam for more $$. They also don't let you sit down in the waiting area without measuring your carry on bags. So my husband went out to get the checked luggage and then recheck it, I took his carry on luggage so it would be easier for him to go through security. Ryan air would not allow me to sit down until he came back."
Cons: "Generally, the experience was horrible. Poor service at the terminal, with unfriendly staff, no proper instruction about what to expect in terms of all the hidden fees for bags and other items, and an unorganized boarding process. The plane itself was clean, but very cramped, and the process of forcing random seating is just totally meaningless. The flight is already so overbooked that there is no chance any seats would be left unfilled, yet you split up couples, families and friends by forcing them to pay for assigned seats. Very poor customer service. There are many who say the money saved is not worth the hassle if you are not flying alone, and I agree with that. The one good thing I can say is that there were no problems with the baggage handling, but again, this is to be expected, not applauded. Poor quality service, Ryanair, as evident by the fact that your own employees were voicing their complaints to several passengers about the company. This should really be improved, but given that they are not under any significant competition, and people need a way to get to the islands, it is unlikely this will happen. I hope that my negative review, as many others, will force the management to make necessary changes to improve the service provided."
Cons: "The check-in was long, lots of standing in cramped spaces, and the rep wasn't friendly or helpful. The website was difficult to utilize and app wouldn't download. It doesn't make sense that you must pay 30 euro before you get to the airport and it seems as if you are checking in. But then you find out you have only paid for luggage and not checked-in. Every time I went to website to check-in got diverted back to main check-in page. So, I had to pay 63 euro for them to print. T boarding pass which is absurd! I ended up paying double what I originally paid. I would not fly them again And would recommend that people just pay extra $50 or so for a better quality of airline, seating, customer service, and fees explained up front. These outrageous surprise fees are crazy!"
Pros: "Seating was not bad. However it seems they made no effort to seat couples together."
Cons: "My flight over doubled its cost when I got to the airport because I was not able to check in or print a boarding pass beforehand and had not prepaid for luggage. Not sure how that adds up to 208 extra euros when my flight cost 160 euros. I do not have an international phone plan and was not able to do this on my phone but so far have had no issues with getting a boarding pass and luggage completed at the airport. And the service there was terrible. There was no order to the line, people kept pushing in and they would just take them ahead. Also the manner of which they dealt with customers was very rushed, rude, and impatient. This is the second review I have written in my life because I don't feel the need to usually, but I wish I knew this beforehand and wanted to share."
Cons: "THE HORRIBLE POOR SYSTEM TO HAVE TO GET OFF THE LINE TO HAVE TO GO PAY FOR OVERWEIGHT, THEN COME BACK TO COUNTER, THEN TAKE YOUR OWN LUGGAGE TO ANOTHER AREA WE ARE NOT USED TO THAT KIND OF LAST CENTURY SYSTEM IN THE USA YOU HAVE A LOT TO LEARN ABOUT CUSTOMER SERVICE, THERE IS NONE... I WILL NEVER FLY WITH RYANAIR AGAIN (NEITHER THE 34 OTHER PEOPLE IN OUR GROUP)"
Cons: "Check in process at airport was sheer chaos. Only one check-in agent, with several standing around doing nothing."
Pros: "Cheap airfare, but everything else tanked so you definitely get what you pay for."
Cons: "As a non-EU passport holder, Ryan Air didn't communicate when I would be receiving my boarding pass (answer: 3 days prior to flying). Also, I needed to print my boarding pass because of my non-EU status. I found all of this out last minute and it was a little stressful while I was abroad since printers weren't at my disposal. On the day of my flight, everything went smoothly until they made me check my bag at the gate before boarding because they claimed my bag was too big and wanted to save room for other carry-ons. It's not, I've complied with all the dimensions and weight policies. Additionally, I purchased priority boarding for the sole reason of securing a place for my carry-on. I found all of this out when I was on the tarmac. The staff wasn't nice about it and I was overall irritated by the lack of communication. While I was in flight, the staff kept trying to sell duty-free products such as perfumes, food and other goods. This would have been fine for a bit but they literally filled the airwaves during the 45 minute trip with product announcements and pricing on the intercom system and trolling the galley holding stuff up the air. It felt like I was at a hectic auction house. Really odd and annoying."
Cons: "The actual airport in Santorini is a zoo and everything takes far longer than it should. There are countless lines to wait in and huge inefficiencies in the way they operate. This causes frustration but Ryan Air only added to that tenfold. They nickel and dime their customers for everything including charging 62 Euro for in person check in. They then charge for overweight and oversized bags but these are based on their unorthodox weight and size restrictions. The worst part of all of this is that after going through 3 lines, you then find out your bag is too big and are forced to go back to the gate agent to start the process over. The flight left late because of these delays. This airline is a joke and I would not recommend flying with them to my worst enemy!"
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "We didn't check in early online so we were charged $120+(two passengers). We are on vacation with extremely limited and generally useless internet access. Charging is 120+ for checking in is an obsurb and unethical business practice geared toward taking advantage of travellers with limited options. We showed up 2+ hrs early and the checked baggage attendants shows up about an 1 after we got there. The checked bags process is a big mess. We barely made our flight and were charged 120+ for checking in at the desk. Checked bags at one counter, payed at a different counter, the attendants were late, dropped checked bags at a different counter, required to check a bag that we have travelled all over the world with, and then they curbside check other passengers bags of the same size."
Pros: "Love the dual boarding process extremely efficient"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have water"
Cons: "We didn't have our boarding passes, so they charged us 30 euros each to print boarding passes and then we wanted to check our suitcases and we were charged 60 euros each. So our original cost of the 2 tickets was a reasonable combined 110 euros, but then they hit us with an additional 180 euros for suitcases and boarding tickets. Felt totaled screwed over"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Online check in or you are charged 45 euros, boarding passes must be printed or downloaded on phones or an additional 18 euro charge per ticket. Check in baggage very expensive."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Crying baby throughout flight."
Cons: "The Greek ATC strike cancelled all flights for 2 days but my flight on Monday had not yet been cancelled although my flight out of Athens on American was cancelled and replaced with a much earlier flight so Monday on Ryanair would not work for me. There was no way on earth that I could get in touch with any human or even online Chat (no one available - ever). The website would not let me make a change - not even to reduce my luggage from 1 bag to zero. No refund because they show me as having flown on the flight! Tried faxing headquarters and no response. Wow what a total rip-off!!!"
Cons: "Last minute online check-in notice, if you miss it you have to pay a $45 fee (per person) upon check-in. First luggage is not free either ($45?), Boarding took two hours of waiting in line."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "simple steps to guide passengers; for example sign with arrow where bus will stop or where passengers will board will help a lot"
Cons: "This airline sent an email indicating that security at the Santorini airport would take 2.5 hours when in reality it was Ryan Air's inefficiency that took that long. I've never had a boarding process take so long, be so inefficient, and the crew be so lacking in customer service. They also were on the PA for almost the entire 50 minute flight trying to sell products which was irritating at best on an 0825 flight. Fly another airline out of Santorini...Ryan air was terrible and the hidden costs for check in and bagggage are ridiculous."
Pros: "Very good nothing bad"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Cons: "Everything! Unorganized, customer service was horrible, so many extra fees, lost luggage along with our friends that lost there luggage. No, direction on where to go for checking in."
Pros: "Cheap ticket prices. Left on time and landed on time."
Cons: "They have fees for absolutely everything. They don't transfer checked luggage, so basically just don't check luggage if you're using Ryanair. Also be sure to print off your tickets, otherwise you get charged a lot extra. And they can't do any of the billing at the bag check desk - you have to go to a separate line for a separate desk. In summary, RyanAir is okay IF you print off your tickets and IF you don't have any checked bags and IF you have zero questions or concerns for them and IF you don't want anything from them at any point. Their tickets aren't cheap enough to warrant such terrible service."
Cons: "over charged the amount for luggage by almost 100% than promised. absolutely chaotic operation and staffs. not a bit concerned about customers needs or comforts."
Pros: "The actual flight was good. It was smooth and quick."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I had to pay almost 140 euros more for extra weight in my baggage. Since I was on vacation, I bought items for myself as well as for friends and family. This made me exceed the 20kg weight limit by 5kg for each check in bag. I wish I flew with Volotea back to Athens from Santorini. I flew with Volotea from Athens to Mykonos, and prior to my flight, they allowed me to buy an extra 10kg per bag for 10 euros, which saved me a lot in baggage fees. Ryanair did not give me that option. DO NOT BE INTICED BY THE LOW PRICE. THEY WILL GET YOU IN THE END. They are the Spirit Airlines of Greece. I will NEVER fly with them again."
Pros: "Flight was on time, they are like a bus service in the sky."
Cons: "Ryanair will price gouge you at the gate. If you show a mobile boarding pass but they decide they want to see it on paper, they will charge you a ridiculous fee to print out the pass. If you want to add a bag, they will charge you over 2x the fee stated online. They know they have you at the airport already, so they can charge whatever they want. Don't bother trying to reach out to their customer service afterwards, they are half-robots that send canned responses that don't really apply to the issue you're trying to explain."
Pros: "Nothing positive to review."
Cons: "We arrive to the Santorini Airport at 6 a.m. for a 8:10 a.m. flight. The first issue that we experienced was a charge for checked bags over 20 kilograms, the initially fee is 43 euros with an additional fee for each kilogram above 20 you are required to pay 9 euro. After shuffling our bag around, we paid the 43 euro. Although we had electronic tickets, they tried to make us to print the tickets for 18 euro. After we worked through that, we proceeded to our "gate." Shortly before our flight, they delayed it in 10 minutes increments, then 20 minute increments until the departure time was rescheduled for 10 AM. Once 10 AM arrived, the flight was delayed again from 10 AM to 5 PM. At that time, I left security to speak to a representative of Ryanair and she informed me that she GUARANTEED the flight would depart at 5 PM. I proceeded to ask her that if it did not, if she could immediately provide me a refund so that we could take the 7:15 PM ferry to Athens for our departure flight to the United States. She agreed she would. As the departure time approached for our 5 PM flight they once again delayed. We immediately went to receive our refund and she informed is that because it was not canceled, she could not provide a refund, which was not what she had previously told me. We then decided to take a cab to the port and purchase tickets for the ferry. Shortly after we left, we were told the flight was delayed time and time again until at least 1:45 AM. I'm not sure if the flight ever went out or if it was ultimately canceled. I would never recommend flying Ryanair. The only positive after 12 hours in the overcrowded, rundown, Santorini airport, a 20 Euro cab ride to the port, and 5 hours on an extremely turbulent ferry boat, Ryan air did refund our ticket and baggage fees. They did not refund us for any other expenses. Avoid them at all cost."
Pros: "Receiving an e mail telling us to arrive at least 2.5 hours before flight...Ryanair representative didn't arrive at the check in counter until 1.5 hour before flight."
Pros: "Almost on time performance"
Cons: "Baggage fees are horrendous. This is the Spirit Airlines of Europe. Unless you are traveling very light, use another airline, it will probably be cheaper when you account for the fees."
