Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "The seat was the most uncomfortable I’ve sat in for some time. No in seat charge option."
Pros: "Pilot kept us well informed."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude and impatient with anyone not speaking greek."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. I was rebooked and I have no bags in Beirut"
Cons: "Boarding announcements could have been clearer and less rushed. They were difficult to understand."
Pros: "The food was probably the best meal I’ve ever had in Economy."
Cons: "The seat pitch was really poor. I’m only 5’ 11” and my knees were rubbing against the seat in front of me the whole time. The seats weren’t particularly comfortable either."
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well."
Cons: "I’ve flown Aegean 3 times in the last month and there flights have been late all 3 times."
Cons: "Charged me $70 and made me check my bag as I was boarding. Had no other option"
Pros: "Love the friendly staff!"
Pros: "Very nice crew, had trouble with boarding"
Cons: "Boarding. They couldn't figure out to make people queue up. It's not a hard job, but they looked like they were struggling. It made me feel like I should step on and help"
Cons: "I lose my bag"
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: "The food was all meat and I am a vegetarian"
Pros: "Clean aircraft. On time. Crew very attentive."
Cons: "Seats are too close together. I could not lower my tray table without hit my stomach: I would like to see some kind of entertainment."
Cons: "I'm a photographer on a 3 week trip. I have luggage. Unless you take the ferry, there are limited airline options to Cyclades. Aegean really doesn't want you if you have luggage. Felt like I was being scolded. True, I'm trying to be frugal and avoid a big investment in shock-proof luggage and/or checked baggage fees, but as long as it fits under my seat, what's the big deal? I'm sure I easily weigh at least 70 pounds less than the person sitting next to me, so the extra 4 kg in a backpack that I (female) can personally carry shouldn't be an issue. Then, there's no jetway. You leave the gate to board a bus that takes you to a plane on the tarmac where you must climb a rather large flight of metal stairs. Reverse direction, It takes quite some time and a few crew members to assist those with disabilities to deplane. All the time the rest of the passengers are waiting in the bus to get to their connections. Would only ever fly this airline again if it was the only option to get where I want to go."
Pros: "Crew was kind and professional Flight was overall comforable"
Cons: "On my return flight to Athens from London, I was told that my hand luggage was too large and needed to be checked. I had to pay an extra 55 pounds (75 USD) to check the bag. On my Aegean flight to London a few days before, I was able to check the bag for free. I do not understand why I was charged for the bag on the way back but not on the way over. $75 is half what I paid for the flight itself - seems way too much just to check a small bag. I will keep this in mind when considering flying with Aegean in the future."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "I was charged for the bags. I didn't know that I was spouse to pay for the bags since the itinerary doesn't show clearly what type of ticket I have!!"
Pros: "Great flight great price"
Pros: "The crew was attentive, kind and welcoming. The leg room even in economy class was more than you might find on bigger airlines in business class! Very pleasant experience all the way around."
Cons: "They charged me an extra 40 euros to check a bag and then lost it completely. It looks like a long process and involved to get any cash from it, not to mention the real pain of being without power cords, clothes, toiletries etc for the rest of the trip. I will never fly out of Naples again."
Pros: "It got me to Larnacasafely."
Cons: "Seats were horribly uncomfortable. I will not fly this airline again after my last trip onthe 14th of August."
Pros: "The fact that you boarded and unboarded on two sides of plane, so quick!"
Pros: "Clean aircraft Legroom Polite service"
Cons: "Delayed No onboard entertainment"
Cons: "delay in disembarking as well as baggage collection"
Cons: "In my electronic ticket there was no information about charges for luggage. I'd tried to access a site to learn about it but could not get it. At the airport I was told that I had to pay $50 (cash only) for a small suitcase I was checking in. I've found it dishonest. The seats were very tight - no leg room."
Pros: "Overall service was good. The seats were not as tight, some leg space. On the flight to Athens they served drinks frequently."
Cons: "Food served was not that good."
Pros: "efficiency and a sense of a smile from the ground staff"
Cons: "the fully booked plane."
Pros: "Gate staff are able to deal with things"
Cons: "Check-in can't process baggage charges, so they send you off to an office across the airport, just to find that the payment processing office is closed for a couple hours in the late afternoon. Why don't you just set the baggage check in people up to process a credit card transaction?"
Pros: "Great crew, great service. Super clean airplane. Fast checkin and baggage drop off."
Cons: "I was surprised, and only for the best!"
Pros: "The flight was ok, in time."
Cons: "I wasn't expecting such a rude crew, Greek people were incredibly nice everywhere and this was the first time in a flight that I felt so disrespected. From check in being the only one questioned about visa and documents (we don't need visa) to being mistreated during flight. Really disappointed."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service"
Cons: "The other passengers were very loud and obnoxious. During boarding it felt like we were a heard of cattle."
Cons: "boarding took for ever. service from the cabin crew was not good. no entertainment."
Pros: "The overall flight was okay. It wasn't as comfortable compared to other flights I've been on and it's a bit difficult to stow luggage. However, I miss my original connection due to flight delays and I was added to a different find free of charge! Very grateful and thankful for that."
Cons: "delayed departure and late notification of delay at 20 minutes to departure board said go to gate, at gate there was a 30 minute delay announcement then there was a further delay when we boarded"
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "The fact the passenger behind me needed me to sit up straight so he could eat mad me feel bad. I suppose entertainment is not a big thing nowadays with all the choices we have with smart phone's and tablets, so not so much a big deal. But with space itn is a big deaI. I reclined my seat and Icould feel my seat on top of someone's knees. So i sat up and struggled to sleep. I suppose in a sleepy haste I reclined my seat. I was awaken to a gentleman asking me to sit my chair up so he could put his tray down to eat his dinner. I felt horrible."
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and helpful. The plane was clean and for the most part departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "The boarding process...it was a zoo. All customers are in line boarding at the same time and the gate agent did nothing to prevent it. The cost for a checked bag was 45 Euro which seems awfully high to me. Perhaps it's cheaper if you book it beforehand as opposed to at the airport."
Cons: "The horrible food"
Pros: "LHR-ATH was all excellent. Good boarding, seats and service."
Pros: "25 minute flight. Day trip from Athens."
Cons: "20 minutes late boarding."
Pros: "The staff at the counter and on the flight were very helpful."
Cons: "They could use better line control at the Budapest airport. It was unclear which was the appropriate line and the lines were more like a crowd merging than a line."
Pros: "Crew were attentive. It was nice there was a meal - but only bread for vegetarians. The pilot sounded very nice. The flight arrived before schedule."
Cons: "Boarding at ATH gate B26 was third world - not enough sitting to accommodate two busy flights: Heraklion and Warsaw - poor AC. On the flight itself the AC was too hot and the air was smelly. In one of the WC there was no water."
Cons: "I am very disappointed in the way my ticket was checked when I was heading to Bucharest from Athens. I had everything ready my boarding pass my passport and my visa. Then the woman who was checking the tickets before we entered looked 2 seconds on my passport and said we have a problem we need to call the immigration. She started calling people and called her coworker, she didn't tell me what was going on! She didn't explain what was the problem, I asked her a couple of times what is the problem she just said we need to call the immigration. I asked her one final time tell me the problem! Then she finally told me, but it turned out obviously she didnt read my visa correctly, there was nothing wrong with my visa or my ticket, the problem was she misread my visa! Then she said oh I didn't see that sorry. This took approximately 10 minutes. Ok she apologized but it didn't sound sensere or honest. I felt embarrassed and humiliated, specially when she kept saying we need to call the immigration like I am some kind of a criminal. I was NOt treated the way customers should be treated. She did not have to be rude in the first place, and she should have apologized in a decent manner wihout any attitude. It would be great if you tell your employees to treat everyone with the same respect, and that they shouldn't descrinate against any nationality. Just because I am from the middle east doesn't mean I should have a problem with my visa! And just because I am 22 doesn't mean I don't deserve a decent apology! Thank you for having the time to read my complaint."
Cons: "we were charged twice for the exact same flights, date and seats. My husband made the same reservations as I had for both of us three weeks later than my reservation was made. When this was discovered by us I called and was told by two agents that I couldn't get any money back. What a rip off."
Cons: "RUDE SERVICE"
Pros: "The actual travel was very good."
Cons: "I had to pay 40 Euros for the luggage and it had to be paid in local currency. The process was frustrating- not knowing they would not take a credit card, getting the cash at the airport bank and then going to an office on the second floor to get the receipt for paying for the luggage. Then back to get our boarding passes. After that it went well."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "The staff was nice. We got there alive."
Cons: "The flight was so cramped, my husband actually scraped his knees on the chair in front of him. Like, a legitimate abrasion on his knee. We weren't seated together, but the people in the plane weren't wearing deodorant or any kind of smell prevention, so the plane was ripe as heck. There was no rhyme or reason to the way the attendants served us - they'd skip people, then come back 20 minutes later to finally serve the skipped person a drink. There was absolutely zero entertainment on the plane, and the food was bad. The airline staff at the airport before departure was even worse! Kayak didn't allow me to buy a bag allowance when I bought the tickets. And there was NO advance warning that there was a weight limit for carry on bags (8kg by the way). So, we got to the airport and had to pay over £100 to check all of our bags. I didn't bring a laptop case, because my bag was usually a carry on, so lo and behold, I got there and yay! My laptop is broken and won't turn on. The flight was incredibly turbulent and my life flashed before my eyes a couple of times. We also had to go to 3 different ticketing Windows and bag drops just to get my ticket and check our bags. You would've thought they were building a rocket ship with the amount of effort that went into the whole ordeal. As I mentioned before, we weren't seated together, and nobody told us this or mentioned it when we got our tickets. Just ridiculous!!"
