Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "The food maybe"
Pros: "Ground crew and cabin crew were very helpful and efficient"
Cons: "The staff at the airport did not know how to validate my travel documents which were emergency documents issued as the originals were stolen in Greece. Apparently a common issue according to the police so I would think the airline would have standard procedures in place for these circumstance."
Cons: "Aegean is an excellent airline one of the best"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat and to close to seat in front. Could barely put tray table down!"
Pros: "Was on time and staff is always great"
Pros: "i try to cancel the tickets for 3 weeks now.... please help"
Cons: "the connecting flight was missed because of a delay in the first flight. i got a different flight with a different airline (sas), they were not informed that i paid extra weight and window seat. i am very unhappy! not to mention that the whole purpuise of my trip is gone, because i a will arrive to copenhagen five hours late for the meeting i was supposed to hold with my fans! i will never fly with egean again!"
Pros: "I purchased the go lite fare because I wanted to reserve the exit row and this was the least expensive option. Good food and nice crew"
Cons: "Entertainment was music only no movies to download. Would have given more stars to Aegean"
Pros: "Free food! Very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Chaos with boarding - should be by rows"
Cons: "I wish the announcements made in English were easier to understand"
Pros: "The assistance from om HE check inn clerk."
Cons: "The confusion of where to drop your bags- whether we had to pay extra and where to pay it!"
Pros: "Excellent service, support and attention from hosts/hostesses"
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: "Our first flight out of Mykonos was delayed by a little so we had to run to our connection in Athens and my bag didn’t make it onto the plane. So now I’m in London, missing a dinner because I don’t have dress acceptable clothes, can’t go out and buy any because it’s too late on a Sunday. I am also going to miss my plans which were the only reason we came to London. as I do not have acceptable clothing to go out in tonight. So it was a waste of paying the flight to London, and our Airbnb in London."
Cons: "space when seating"
Pros: "crow and food and cooporatio was wow"
Cons: "seat was so hard"
Pros: "The staff especially the cabin crew were very professional and Courteous. The food was fantastic and served well."
Cons: "Being called to wait to board in a Que when we did not need to like Ryan Air"
Pros: "Good service! On time!"
Cons: "not nearly enough room, despite having bought extra legroom seats. Crowded.."
Cons: "Gâte operator were very slow I was going to loose my connection to Paris as it took me more than 1hour to make the check in"
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: "Very good"
Pros: "The employees were very helpful and friendly. Food was not worse than what one can expect of an airline (about as “good” as a US airline’s, which is not a high standard to beat). The plane seemed recent and clean."
Cons: "The major problem was the lack of detail on their luggage policy. I am sure they can show the text clearly warning me about the fees for bringing a piece of luggage per person, but I missed it. Therefore, they charged me $35 per person for their registered bag. That’s probably how they “beat” their competitors’ prices. If you include the fees in your calculation, this might still be a good option, but make sure that you read the fine print, or be prepared to pay as “extra” what many airlines offer as basic."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment was good! Plane wasn’t full so made a more comfortable trip."
Cons: "Had to wait over an hour before take off for repair. But happy they were conscientious about fixes."
Cons: "They locked the bathrooms whenever the staff were passing around drinks, food, or collecting garbage. They claimed it was due to "safety" but every staff was easily walking around passing around drinks. There was no turbulence. Even when multiple people tried to get up to go to the restroom, they sent them away. Finally, when they unlocked the bathrooms after a good 30 mins, there were HUGE lines. They did this multiple times. It doesn't make sense to lock the bathrooms that long. People need to use the restroom and then they create larger lines which is more dangerous because even more people are standing up at the same time. Doesn't make sense. Will probably not use this airline again if this occurs again."
Pros: "Air attendants were nice"
Cons: "Long queue for baggage check. Food was below average."
Pros: "Crew is very patient, and have a beautiful appearance. We arrived 1hr late, but an attendant was available to help us to the nxt gate. We only had 15mins."
Cons: "Both connecting flights between Heraklion & Athens where late. This one being 1hr late! When we finally did board, it was a mess! Couldn't hear any instructions, the people for the nxt flight from that gate where all standing in the way. In Athens an attendant did his best to get us to the connecting flight. 15mins was all we had. My travel partner had problems walking & had to try to run to the nxt terminal. An awful experience, especially for her!"
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: "Boarding was expedited using two entries."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour."
Pros: "Onboard food is always excellent. Great legroom (row 5 on a321) from Athens to London (LHR). Seats are comfortable enough and servers are always pleasant."
Pros: "Getting food provided. After almost missing the flight it was a real bonus to find this is the only flight in years that I've taken which provided a meal. In the old days I might have complained about the quality of airline food. Now I'm just very grateful to get it! - and the quality was not bed either!!"
Pros: "Wasn't expecting so much food for such a short journey, but it was delicious, and views from the plane were gorgeous."
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 entertainment on a 4 hour flight"
Cons: "My luggage was broken and Aegean was not helpful in resolving the issue."
Pros: "Before the first fly we request to be on the front and we ger the last row!!! The plan was so small that i cant get inside and i'm 1.90 m so i need to put my legs out and all the time the girls staff kick my legs and wake me up Before i get inside the plan they took my trol (small sutcate) becuse "it's to much big" (this is the regular size!!!! and when i told the girls they told me that we dont dissc lus about it!!!! Al the flight their wasnt ballans and it was terrible i felt so bad and when all the people get a paper to feel and i was sleep so no one told me that i need to do this Terrible flight of my life!!!!"
Pros: "Quick and direct flight."
Cons: "There wasn't any food or snacks. The airport was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Flight was canceled and had to stay 3 more nights took boat to Athens. Missed work at home . It cost me over 1000.00 dollars. Reservation was never made by you. I will never use kayak again. Being a senior I became very stressed in a strange country"
Cons: "I don't like kayak"
Pros: "They served a meal!"
Cons: "I was not able to use this reservation and when I contacted Aegean, they would not refund any portion of the ticket nor give me credit. Therefore, I cannot recommend the airline nor will I ever fly them."
Cons: "When I purchased the ticket the site stated one bag checked was includEd. But when we checked in we were told we had to pay an additional 35 euros per bag. We did not expect the additional expense."
Cons: "We were delayed almost 3 hours and we're not provided with the reason for the delay except for "technical difficulties" at airport"
Cons: "The lost and found office is not open 24 hours in Athens. And that is strange how can you claim something u lost if your flight doesn't fall within the 9 to 5 hours."
Pros: "Amazing food!!! All free! Amazing food and amazing wine for free! I love Aegean they are the best best best."
Pros: "Very friendly. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Quick flight from mykonos to Athens. IIt's a small airport can arrive 1 hr from departure"
Pros: "Great service. Cabin crew was fenomenal."
Pros: "There was a little more room than I am used to in coach and that made for a more enjoyable flight. The staff was attentive and nice and English skills were good enough so that I did not feel that there were any misunderstandings. I would fly them again and cost was a plus"
Cons: "I was charged $90 for something which I was unaware of. I assume it was baggage but they did not tell me when I checked in. I only found out once I was home and reviewing my credit card statement. At the time of check in I was surprised they did not charge for bags but I was not going say anything at the time."
Cons: "Not cancelling this flight and 5 other flights."
Pros: "Great leg room in standard seats!"
Pros: "So not amazing, but good value - you get for what you pay-"
Cons: "Boarding at gate 43 at Berlin was very bad. Encouraged to go to gate very early. The gate area wasn’t pleasant. Once checked in through the gate we had to stand in a cramped fenced off area for more than 30 mins Seating on aeroplane cramped Everything else was good."
Cons: "Tall people suffer in any seat but the exit seat. Delayed flights are never enjoyable"
Cons: "More than one hour delay"
Pros: "Quick and no fuss"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice There are always delays"
Pros: "On time. Price."
Cons: "No vegan food just crisps or alcohol"
Cons: "Delay at departure one hour, long queues in Luton at passport control"
Pros: "Easy boarding and flight. The onboard meal deal tasted alright and wasn't as had value as I'd expected."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats but bearable for a few hours if you're not trying to sleep."
Cons: "The seats not comfortable for such a long flight, especially compared to bue air on the outbound trip"
Pros: "One time"
Cons: "Cattle car boarding. But expected. Luton airport is confusing for transport to London"
Pros: "Kept informed about delay"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 3 hours so booked another flight with another airline"
Cons: "Late again!! This flight has a 100% record of being over 30 mins late!"
Cons: "i think the whole airline companies are losing the idea of providing simple free tea or coffee."
Pros: "The EasyJet crew are always excellent - friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "The Paris to Luton flight is nearly always delayed. The is no slack in the timetable so any morning delay continues until the evening."
Pros: "The crew were good. Friendly and worked hard throughout the flight."
Cons: "Check in at Antalya was late opening, very disorganised and seemed incapable of dealing with what is a relatively small aircraft. Not easyjet’s fault, but Antalya is very poor, very much like the Greek island airports. Flight was a about 2 hours late."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "At first we had no seats as the plane was one row shorter than the one booked, so we had to wait. It turned out there were 3 free seats on the back row so my son could have a window seat for his 2nd time in the air."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed from 2040 to 2230"
Pros: "Their friendly service was great"
Cons: "leg room might push me out of their great airline"
Cons: "While clearly my lack of attention to detail, I do not mind Heathrow / city / Gatwick, so when I saw a deal I took it. On my return flight I discover that it is to London Luton, and not one of the 3 ACTUAL Airports in London."
Pros: "The flight itself was quite quick and the staff on board were very nice"
Cons: "We boarded really early but the plane hadn’t arrived and we were made to wait in a corridor, we boarded at about 9:30 when we were supposed to depart at 8:55, we departed almosted an hour later than expected (9:45) which made a huge difference and unfortuntely we missed the train from luton and the last tube in London."
Pros: "The crew and flight experience in general was nice"
Cons: "3 hours delay! Also, few people got a 5€ bonus (for food/drinks) but most of us didn’t know about it."
Pros: "Reasonable price. On time- in fact we left early"
Cons: "Passengers tend to be slow boarding as they are not frequent travellers"
Pros: "The fact that it was on time which is unusual between Charles du Gaulle and london"
Pros: "We left on time and had a very smooth take off and landing. No issues with easyJet on this flight at all."
Cons: "The usual, not much legroom unless one is prepared to pay extra."
Pros: "Nothing special to mention"
Cons: "No luggage room above our head, we had to leave our luggage somewhere else far from our seats and the crew should help us promptly to get those luggage back but no, we had to get it ourselves and had to wait till the very end after all the other passengers have already got off the plane. Not fair on us when we were sat next to exit but had to anxiously wait. Shame!"
Pros: "Cabin crew tried hard to sound cheerful and be efficient"
Cons: "One word: DIRE. No information on the delay, we were left standing with no refreshments and tired kids for 2 hours, a good part of which was outside the terminal waiting to walk over to board the plane. Staff didn't bother to say anything, didn't know anything, offered no help, no refreshments or food, and there were only a couple of benches for people to sit on (this was the covered walkway outside the terminal building, offering no shelter from the heat). easyJet showing once again that it actually manages to be worse than Ryanair!"
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Late departure. Limited legroom."
Pros: "Pilot telling very clear about flight , timing,"
Cons: "For the second time in a row the boarding process at Lyon airport was a joke. They try and board 3 flights at a time with just 2 stsff checking passports. This causes a massive queue and delays to all flights."
Pros: "Although there was a delay, the staff were as friendly and helpful as can be. They kept us posted throughout. Boarding was carried out super quick. Flight staff were very friendly and had been delayed themselves and working extra hours for us"
Cons: "4 hours or more delay - will be claiming compensation and hope they will do the right thing and not give trouble with compensation"
Cons: "Accumulated delays over the day meant we only departed after midnight. Crew were understanding and offered free drinks / snacks, but in the end you just want to get home."
Pros: "Nothing - no certainty for me the passenger over the delay. I had info by text which stopped after a while fortunately I could check on the website - times kept changing? The board only showed delayed & few announcements. Giving us €4.50 only covered half cost of a muffin and a drink!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed four hours but they told us to check in at the early time!!!! Then had to wait at airport all that time. Nice airport a mess not re signposted hard to find gate B!The ground crew were vague & not helpful. They should have provided us with bottles of water and a decent meal!! & certainty- failed woefully. The rep was not always at the gate to assist people I sat nearby reading so saw this. When it was time to actually board they made no announcement just put the gate number up on the board!!! Later made one for speedy boarding!! Did not feel looked after in any way. Then no cold drinks on plane and no ice till I made a fuss - suddenly I had ice!!! Charged my card in £ instead of € No hot food. Card machines not working - no wifi!! Doh!! All in all appalling customer service/ PR The crew were exhausted and over it - their job to to care for passengers - I think one went off in tears??"
Pros: "The online booking & check in saved time. Process from baggage check in to boarding were smooth & hassle-free. That's what I need for a short flight. Will recommend to my brother when he & his wife travel to Europe end of this year"
Cons: "No time so approached the counter staff at the airport about baggage hold, info provided was not complete. Luckily found some time to double check online, saved €€€ on baggage hold. Also, pls ignore rating on the food & entertainment, there were none. Overall, experience good enough for my short flight."
Pros: "Flew on one of the newest planes, a new airbus A320"
Cons: "Crew disorganized in service, several sandwich options ran out. Took 40 minutes to get to row 8. Some crew member focused on service but missed the mark on efficiency, and several appeared occupied with chit chatting than running the service"
Cons: "Slowwwww boarding. Half a dozen or so speedy boarders and instead of letting everyone else through once those passengers were through they continued to check people in a single file, until staff realised we were behind schedule and started using both check in scanners."
Pros: "I regularly fly between Luton & Paris. The Easyjet staff are always happy and professional - on this flight Christopher & Sarah. Their welcome is sincere and the warmth of their hospitality is maintained throughout the flight, as it is with many of their colleagues. I ordered hot food which was not anything beyond OK - but it was as expected, and promptly served on the short flight. The variety of drinks and snacks is good, and the offers on boutique products is worth a look. The flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "It seems that fairly regularly the overall experience is marred by inconsistent levels of service by the support services at Luton Aiport (which I believe is run by Menzies). Over several occasions I have waited some time for steps to arrive, and yesterday, it was the availability of coaches to take the passengers to the terminal building. It is as if there is a breakdown in the overall organisation, which is not directly the fault of Easyjet - but being their home base, over which you would expect that Easyjet could exert some influence. The delay was not severe on this occasion, but just takes the edge off an otherwise pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Delayed and over-zealous ex-RAF types on security"
Cons: "There's no lifts to board the planes. So with your on-board luggage, a buggy and a baby it is really hard with the stairs and there's no one around to help"
Pros: "The check-in/security was very efficient and pain free especially at Gatwick. The return leg flight was delayed, but time was made up and information was good."
Pros: "Did not rush to board the plane, waited until the very end. No point. Got allocated seats anyway. Got on to plane smoothly."
Cons: "Leg room!! Either my legs have grown or those seats are getting closer!!"
Cons: "seat are really uncomfortable...staff unpolite"
Pros: "Airport facilities in Edinburgh. No waiting time at security. Water fountaine after security."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by nearly 1 hr. No information of it until 15 min before the scheduled take off time, inspite of me signing up to text alerts at the flight booking. Boarding via bus and just 1 staircase. Passengers with children under 5 years announced to board first, but no chance as no way through unorganised crowd of passengers waiting."
Cons: "Horrible experience! I missed a very important meeting! Flight from LTN to CPH (EZY2445). Flight was suppose to take off at 7:00am. When we board at 6:40 we are told we are not taking off until 7:30a, (why did we even board then?) And then when the plane is nearly on the runway to take off, one of the crew members decides to mention she is sick so we have to turn back. Two points here: 1. If you are sick, why didn't you call in? 2. from 6:40 - 7:30am you did not know you were sick?? You wait until we get on the runway, after we finally get a spot in the Que? So then we get back to the gate, take a good 10- 15 mins for her to walk off and a new cabin crew to come on (not to mention she looked fine walking off, i mean she was probably sick but sick to bring the plane back from the runway - not so sure). Following this, apparently the plane needed re-fueling because we went to the runway and back. Now this is a bit worrying. The fact that we just went to the runway and back and the aircraft needed more fuel. What if we had to wait in the air for additional minutes for air traffic would we run out? just a thought.. Ok well all this happened. And then guess what - we have to wait another 45 mins in the que for take off! At this point it was very clear i was going to miss my meeting given it was already 9am. After all this a passenger sitting next to me asked if we can at least get a complimentary coffee or tea, which initially he received a NO because the flight has to be delayed a MINIMUM of 3 hrs before we can get that. He had to raise a fuss, for them to say ok we will ask the captain, the opp team, the air traffic control (FOR COFFEE OR TEA!!?) . Overall horrible experience, and i missed a a very important meeting. Will be reconsidering my airline choice in the future."
Pros: "Great cheerful helpful crew as ever, even if the lady on the bag on the bag drop seemed rather unhappy."
Cons: "Luton Airport. This is the first time I have landed there and I think it competes for the worst airport in the world. Very cramped, long queues at passport control, toilets out of order everywhere, awful decor, terrible signage. Dirty crowded, depressing. And the train service at the station is also dreadful."
Cons: "People were called to the gate according to original departure time, although the flight was delayed (this info was give via loudspeakers.) I for one had to rush from a coffee shop, thinking that we are now boarding. Instead I had to stand up for 45 min (no seats in the corridor) to get into a boarding area, just to continue standing as all the seats were taken - I wasn't the only one, there were mothers with small children who couldn't find a seat either. Temperature was about 30 oC. Suggestions: 1. Don't alert people too early. 2. Offer water when temperature is so high and wait so long. 3. Ask young men playing games on they smartphones to give up their seats to those who have difficulty standing up."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Nothing, only good thing was that the girl at the check-in was very nice and felt bad for the situation, then inside the plane after we landed, the manager was very attentive and nice to me, she heard my complaints and made sure I spoke my part."
Cons: "- They charged me 55 GBP for missing the check-in - They didn't let me facture the suitcase even tho I paid for the priority entrance. I had to throw away my liquid bottles. - While boarding one of the flight attendants told me to walk faster because they were late, even though I had two heavy bags in both of my hands. Then he insulted me in Italian and after I asked him 8 times to tell me what he said to me he told me to shut up and sit down. I sat down for 2 hours in a very bad mood trying to control myself from starting a fight. After the flight I waited and spoke with the manager about it, If I'm not wrong the name of the attendant was Luca and the manager heard my complaints. This was the worse flight of my entire life, I have never been treated so disrespectfully in a plane, I felt humiliated. I will never touch a Ryanair plane ever again. I definitely should be getting a refund for this."
Cons: "Delayed then not delayed then the crew were late and made no attempt to hurry themselves then wen we boarded we were told we were delayed an hour and 40 minutes so had to sit there on the plane with no1 telling us wats going on or wen we were leaving! No refreshments available while we were waiting really poor from Ryan air I won't be flying with them agen"
Cons: "Plane arrived late, took off 1.5hrs after plan and arrived late in Dublin There was no tea, beer or wine. Most of the food was not available"
Cons: "Nearly 3 hours late and no proper explanation for delay. Sorry but delayed incoming aircraft doesn't wash. Also had to wait nearly half an hour upon landing at Stansted before we could disembark"
Pros: "Passengers and crew were nice. The basic price is ok, but many people buy "extras" like "privileged" boarding, and seats next to friends/relatives, so not so cheap overall."
Cons: "I don't understand Ryanair policy on random seat assignment. It delays boarding while passengers negotiate on swapping seats. I guess it's just a cynical ploy to extract more money, like the privileged boarding scam. In Palma, the departure board went from Delayed to Boarding without any announcements. The plane was late arriving and the crew blamed the ground staff. The ground staff were certainly slow coming to the plane at Stansted. I wonder if they are disenchanted with Ryanair too. We will actively avoid Ryanair where possible, and advise others to do so."
Pros: "Cabin baggage management"
Cons: "Hold baggage took over half an hour to arrive. Loot enough seats in gate at airport of departure"
Cons: "Gates announced too late"
Pros: "Informative polite pilot Most cabin crew were courteous, helpful and professional"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a free for all without being organised at Chania end One member of cabin crew was clearly having a bad day; rolled his eyes and sighed when I was attempting to be helpful in returning items."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Our flight was late to take off, and had to queue for 30 minutes at Shannon - before the plane had even landed. At stansted then had to get a long bus to the terminal and wait on the bus for 10 minutes because they couldn't open the doors. Luckily after a sprint to the station we made the last stansted express of the evening (£28 return each - 'London' airports for you)"
Cons: "Plane was late to take off by 40 minutes We arrived at the plane early on the bus, but couldnt board as the stairwell hadnt been fitted to the plane, therefore had to sit on the bus in the heat until the stairs came along"
Pros: "everything on this flight went like clockwork the flight left on time and the crew onboard were really helpful and pleasant"
Pros: "Nice, not that noisy"
Cons: "Other passenger a bit loud"
Pros: "Adequate seat room, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Priority boarding but congested at Gate and held standing on bus for 10+ mins. Cabin staff ok but not as alert, proactive or responsive as normal. Trying to sell scratch cards rather than provide relevant services."
Pros: "nothing ..."
Cons: "Queuing for 45 mins at boarding at 21.25 pm which grew to 10.05 pm! no apparent reason for this although we were all given manual luggage tags and then they were checked off again before getting into the plane- the Malaga ground staff could not answer questions as they didn't speak english well enough.. poor. onboard completely overcrowded locals and no help from crew on seating = lots of spare stoats at back.. i.e. space."
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "All passengers were lined up waiting to Board at the correct gate at leading up to and at the time the flight was supposed to depart at 11.55am. There was no communication on the flight boards and no member of staff from Ryanair or other near the gate. At about 12.30 two members of airport staff turned up and started the boarding process and eventually we got away an hour late at 12.55 still none the wiser about the lack of communication, service and delay. It would take a lot to persuade me to fly with Ryanair again."
Pros: "Timely departure, relatively smooth check-in"
Cons: "Too much in-flight advertising, no complimentary drinks."
Pros: "A 6 hour delay with rude, nasty staff. I will be making a formal complaint."
Cons: "The staff bullied a girl next to me and have no sympathy."
Pros: "Timing was ok"
Cons: "All passengers were asked to pre-board which meant standing in the bridge to the plane before the plane arrived. We then had to walk down the stairs outside with the mosquitoes then walk up the stairs to the plane."
Cons: "The air conditioning was very high and I think that most passengers feel very cold during the flight."
Pros: "No frills, on time, good value for money"
Cons: "The food selection is nothing to rave about."
Pros: "The flight was on time and I got a good seat despite not upgrading."
Cons: "Some passengers were noisy, but luckily I had earplugs."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay by two hours"
Pros: "Ryanair professionals are soo better than a few years ago"
Cons: "To pay for water if I feel thirsty during the flight"
Pros: "Most of the crew were hard working, pleasant and the flight came in slightly early"
Cons: "There was a cabin services director (or whatever his title was) who clearly liked the sound of his own voice. He kept going on and on about how bad the weather was in London and how sunny it was in Portugal. He mentioned rain and snow in London and suggested that people booked a return flight to Portugal in the twenty-five minutes available to them in London after the plane had landed. One joke about the sun versus the rain might have been acceptable but to raise it again ad again just became irritating and an abuse of the PA system. He shouted Halleluja amongst other things when trying to get money out of people for the Ryanair charity. If he wants to be a professional comedian he should change his profession as he was just annoying people and he stopped the flight from being relaxing,"
Pros: "Cabin crew were brilliant and dealt with all questions with ease. Well trained team and immaculate appearance."
Cons: "Rough landings but not sure if that's due to aircraft model."
Pros: "Ahead of time"
Cons: "Not a lot of point in having priority boarding as everyone on the coach so no priority"
Pros: "They didn't disturb us with as many sales calls down the isle as usual. Smartly dressed crew. Otherwise nothing."
Cons: "Over 4 hour delay Lack of communication Constant queuing No leg room No head rest No entertainment what so ever No food/drink provided FoC No compensation Chair does not recline"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 7 hours"
Pros: "Crew boarding and overall is good"
Pros: "Simple, comfortable, practical & cheap.Love Ryanair...they make quick weekends away possible...Ryanair have changed. In particular the fact that they allow a second small bag in the cabin make them now a lot better than easyjet (My experience with easyjet recently has been much more pedantic & fussy & awkward). Ryanair gets you there cheaply and with a decent degree of comfort and service."
Pros: "I can't think of any."
Cons: "Rude gate staff at Otopeni Airport insisting I place my hand luggage in the hold until I informed them I had priority seats. The whole concept of priority boarding goes out the window as boarding was via a bus"
Pros: "The plane was clean and we boarded on time ..... however we sat on the plane for 2 hours whilst Ryan air staff disembarked a drunk passenger from the plane and found his luggage . It was very obvious whilst waiting at the gate that this man was very very drunk and already being extremely abusive to his partner . Why was he allowed to board the plane causing inconvenience to all the passengers on board and the cabin crew and the following passengers on the next flight ? Yes the team apologised but we weren't provided with any drinks or offered a discount on pod and beverages and practically had to beg to be able to use the toilet during the delay ........ really disappointing"

Cons: "landing was terrible"
Pros: "Crew were fine, but I'd rather pay a few quid more on the ticket to have a better experience. Something between this and BA would be fine for me."
Cons: "Never a pleasant experience, but mercifully brief."
Pros: "The morning flight was over an hour late with considerable time spent on the apron - the evening flight was equally late - I don't have a problem with planes being late - it happens due to weather etc. BUT. only if I am told what is happening, no information was provided whatsoever, this is not helpful...."
Pros: "Busy departure time, waited 45mins in the aircraft for take off. Had to check in our hand luggages due to busy flight so again waiting at the other end to retrieve our baggage."
Pros: "Barcelo hotel it couldn't have better staff. From reception, waitress/bar, and all the people involve in the service, they are all great professionals and it give you the best services. We will come back asap Xxx"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "flew from eindhover to london."
Cons: "flight was a late time slot. Could have done with a few hours less in Eindhover. We were told to board and left outside in the cold for 15 minutes. No information or announcement as to why the delay.. or why in the freezing cold."
Cons: "The flight was half an hour late arriving than its departure time, then we waited a further 1.5 hours before taking off arriving in London at quarter to 2. Barely any announcements were made meaning many felt confused and frustrated. Understandably the weather meant we couldn't take off but that wasn't explained until it was too late. Upon arriving in London we then waited a further 15 mins to disimbark as they only had one person who could open the doors at Stanstead. This felt like adding insult to injury."
Pros: "Was delay an struggled with baby"
Pros: "Great app"
Cons: "Boarding was manic and Kerry airport facilities poor."
Pros: "Friendly staff, arrived on time despite poor boarding protocol."
Cons: "Been invited to board, only to end up waiting in a freezing cold stairwell which lead outside, only to find that nobody from Ryan air had even been on the plane yet. The plane door had never been opened until 10 minutes after we had been waiting in the cold."
Pros: "The planes are getting older apparently. This plane was very noisy."
Pros: "I hated everything"
Cons: "I will never fly with Ryanair again. They ripped off all my money. If I would have booked 2 tickets with British airways would have been much better and cheaper."
Cons: "Suitcases took ages to come out!"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport 2 hours early to make sure I had plenty of time to find my way around. I found out 45 minutes before my flight that it was delayed 5 hours. They apologized and offered us a $5 voucher for food/ non alcoholic beverage. $5 is like maybe 35% off a meal without a beverage. I wouldn't have even eaten there had it not been for the delay, so I ended up spending more money there to get some dinner. 7 hours in a small airport without things todo makes for a very long day. It also would have been nice if the airport had charging stations for your phone and electronic devices."
Cons: "Staff was rude at check in and a group of us was all over the plane and 45 min delay for take even though we all boarded the plane"
"I was going to miss my connecting flight with sky Express also and the people in the office said they couldn't help me book another flight for the next day, but that I had to wait until anthens and go their office to help me. Other people on staff were friendly though."
Pros: "Not a lot of anything."
Cons: "Everything. Just a really bad flight I’m general."
Pros: "Never again"
Cons: "I had to pay extra for baggage, I had baggage on the booking, but upon booking it was only for 8 KG, and need to purchase more, The baggage cost was almost equal to the ticket, needs to be addressed on the home page, I pick with baggage and then booked the ticket, needs to show that it is not the same baggage as other flights, comparison is wrong."
Cons: "Only allowed 15kgs even though we had booked for 23 on the way to Santorini. Not sure where this discrepancy occurred but had to pay for extra weight."
Pros: "Crew and flight attendants were highly professional. Arrived early; short boarding time. Airport was clean and easy to navigate. Good places to dine."
Cons: "The web site is difficult to navigate, including the determination of luggage pricing and seat assignments only available at check-in."
Cons: "Three hours of delay for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Fast flight. Nice staff onboard aircraft."
Cons: "The boarding process at Milos airport is a bit slow but I guess that is to be expected in the islands."
Cons: "I have never been treated so horribly by another human as I was by the boarding gate agent. My luggage was a roller board that was approved by the check-in counter to go aboard. Upon boarding the woman refused to let me board stating my bag was too large. I was charged 60 euros."
Cons: "The repeatedly delayed our flight without further information, leaving us in the dark as to what was goin going on, the reason for the delay, and when the expected new time of take off is. Disappointing service. Could have been better handled by sky express staff."
Cons: "Delayed and slow"
Cons: "Flight delayed with no notice / flight attendant rude , very bad experience"
Cons: "Sent the passengers but not your bags without telling us. Caused a great deal of trouble, time and anxiety as we had another international flight to catch. Would not fly them again."
Cons: "After years of checking in online well before a flight with other airlines an inability to do so for this sky express flight made me nervous that something was wrong or that I would be charged a fee to check in at the airport. Ultimately everything worked out once we arrived at the counter."
Pros: "Delayed 90 min and missed our connection"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "It was terribly hot - everyone on the flight was fanning themselves with the emergency instructions and looking miserable. The individual air didn't work either. Felt like I was going to passout."
Cons: "20 min delay Crew doesn’t smile"
Pros: "The cabin crew was professional and helpful"
Cons: "If buying through Kayak, it isn't clear that SkyExpress has severe weight restrictions on luggage. You are allowed a small carry-on, but at the discounted fare, any checked baggage over 8kg is charged at 8 Euros per kg (around $4.25 per lb), which can add up to a large surcharge quickly."
Cons: "Great flight, great people"
Cons: "Long wait and crowded Santorini airport"
Cons: "Paying $600 for the next leg of our flight because of airline delay."
Cons: "My name was listed twice on the iten. Didn’t bord."
Pros: "Once on plane rest was quick"
Pros: "Fast check-in at counter, no line. Was invited to Sky Express lounge prior to boarding. Small plane meant a quick boarding with no issues."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late."
Pros: "No pros. Will never travel with them again."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late and there was NO air conditioning on the flight. It was 87 degrees on the flight and we spent almost 2 hours in that heat on the plane between the actual flight time and just sitting on the runway for an hour. Nothing was done to accommodate for the heat. I’m 5 months pregnant and felt unsafe. Everyone on the flight was suffering. It was inhumane conditions. I will NEVER fly with this company again."
Pros: "I mean the flight gets you to and from..."
Cons: "Sky charges for every KG over 15kilos unless you have a special ticket. This option is not listed on kayak and the suggest you book thru sky. Problem is NOBODY BOOKS VIA SKY AND THEIR WEBSITE IS GARBAGE. YOU CANT EVEN CHECK IN ONLINE. The result is many rude, dismissive folks charging an extra 100 euros for something you will have no control over."
Pros: "Thankfully no extra fee for baggage, although what constitutes as carry on for another airline, they require you to check."
Cons: "We were very delayed on the way leaving Mykonos and there wasn’t a single notification, update or apology. The plane had no air, was extremely hot and muggy, almost unbearable. On the other end, luggage delivery extremely delayed. Completely incompetent airline and staff. Never again."
Cons: "20 minute delay with nobody at the gate and no communication about why we were leaving late"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I realize we’ve all heard the required announcements a hundred times but, if you are going to bother saying it, please speak more slowly and clearly."
Cons: "Very late and hot. Unorganized."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The tickets I purchased through Kayak stated we were allotted 23 kilo/bag, the standard for most airlines. We flew Sky Express to Santorini with no issues. It wasn’t until we were boarding to go back to Athens when the attendants for Sky Express told us the limit per bag was only 15 kilo, not 23. I spoke with someone in their management office at the Santorini airport and apparently they have different levels of tickets you can purchase, the highest allows the most amount of baggage weight. I explained to them that we had no issues flying into Santorini and showed them my e-ticket from Kayak that clearly showed 23 kilo/bag limit and they would not honor that. We wound up having to pay over $80 in baggage fees because we were lied to by Kayak. Thank you Kayak."
Pros: "Easy checkin, no issues"
Cons: "Skyexpress is extremely disorganized and the flight was very old. The flight is very small and in a poor condition. The baggage policy is very unreasonable and I had to pay extra even though my kayak confirmation says 23 kg per passenger clearly! I showed the representative and they said to deal with it from the "vendor" I used to book! Very disappointed with sky express!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Ridiculous wait to get a boarding pass--standing and standing in line before they opened the desk. Santorini airport a nightmare. Old plane.... the letters of the airline's name were peeling off the plane. Flight was fine"
Cons: "Flight Delayed"
Cons: "Trip cancelled due to high winds. I was forced to keep my luggage on the plane for an hour after the cancellation then another hour to get out of baggage claim. Don't take those small planes, fly Aegean or Olympic who have bigger planes and the best pilots."
Pros: "Short time for boarding"
Cons: "I had to pay extra charge due to lack of communication between the KAYAK and the S.A Then the KAYAK blamed me for paying this money even though I emailed them telling what happens exactly. I don't recommend using KAYAK for booking flights again"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. Flight time was short."
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed, I almost missed my ferry connection"
Pros: "It was a very fast fight"
Cons: "No air conditioning on a very hot day"
Cons: "The airline closed the gates 30 minutes prior to boarding and wouldn't let us get in the plane. We missed our flight and had to find another way there. No refunds or credit"
Cons: "I purchased 3 tickets through Hahn Air for a special trip for my daughters. I rechecked reservations before to make sure had everything in place, since I named my daughter Santorini afte the island. The day of the flight, we spent 2 hours waiting in line for this flight. The service was exceptionally slow and they kept letting other passengers who were on another flight ahead of us. When I got to the check-out counter we were told that our flight didn't exist and it was like we were ghosts in the system. Even after showing proof of our e-ticket confirmation, it didn't matter. We had to repurchase new tickets at high prices and wait the whole day at the airport to get to Santorini. My friends who were traveling with us had to go on without us and the expensive hotel I purchased for the trip was a waste. We didn't get off the island until 8 and arrived late in Santorini. The whole experience was a disaster."
Cons: "They charged us 6 euro per kilo for every kilo over the bad weight limit, but our ticket only allowed for a very small bag which we didn't know until we were at the ticket counter and it was too late. No one tried to help us or have any sort of customer service so we ended up paying a lot of money so that we didn't make other passengers wait on us to transfer weight."
Pros: "Flight attendants on the plane"
Cons: "The check in agent was one of the meanest people I have ever met."
Cons: "The ticket explicitely says luggage allowance is 23kg(50 lb). When we arrived to check-in the airline refused to honor it and said allowance is only 15kg. They made everyone pay €3 per each kg "overweight""
Cons: "I did not board my return flight to Athens with Sky Express because the flight never showed up. I had to pay out of pocket for another flight with a different airline to get back to Athens. While I was waiting to hear any updates regarding the flight status, the company provided minimal details about the status of our flight and spoke in a condescending manner to concerned passengers that had flight connections in Athens. I was told my flight would be reimbursed but I have no confidence in this company's management to expect reimbursement. I will warn other customers that this airline can cause great grievances and inconveniences. The company's service was atrocious and frankly unbelievable. If one pays for a plane ticket, one should be provided adequate service in a timely manner. I'm forgiving about delays but the plane never came."
Cons: "Booked the flight with Hahn Air two months in advance to make sure everything went smoothly as it was a special trip for my 12 year old son and I. When we got to the check in counter we were told our reservation could not be found!! Even after I spent over $400USD for our tickets to Santorini. Thankfully, Olympic air had a flight later in the day and we were able to salvage our vacation. I had to spend a lot more money for the new tickets probably because it was last minute. Do not use Hahn Air systems to book your flight-you'll be left in the lurch with added stress and possibly a spoiled vacation."
Pros: "Sole cabin crew was very nice, polite. Seats were relatively comfortable with just enough legroom for a tall person. No food, no entertainment so left as 1-star (not because it was bad, just that it wasn't there for a 50-minute flight)."
Cons: "Unavoidable delay in flight due to air traffic in Santorini was full, so delayed by an hour."
Cons: "If you arrive in Athens on an international flight and are heading to Santorini, you must collect your bags, proceed through customs and then journey to a different area of the airport for domestic check-in. . Hahn's service was exceptionally slow, with only one window. if possible pay for your bags online. I wasn't able to find the option to do so. Airport fee to check 2 average size bags was 70 euro and required us to wait in another line just to make the payment. We gave ourselves 2.5 hours between flights and barely made the boarding for Santorini. Flight is approx 35 minutes. Service was good and seats were comfortable."
