Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Food! Service!"
Pros: "MUCH SPACE WITH ALMOST EMPTY AIRCRAFT ."
Cons: "Boarding and airport were terrible. Needed to walk 2 KM from one gate to another, only to board bus back to original location. Bus needed to make multiple trips to accommodate all passengers, this took one hour for boarding."
Cons: "I was bumped from my flight. Suspect it was because flight was booked thru kayak instead of directly with airline. Will not do that again"
Cons: "They changed my seat at the gate, will be filing a claim to Turkish airlines."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We where forced to take another flight 6 hours later and in returen we where promised a 250 euro compensation and a 5 stats hotel to wait in. What actually happend is that we had to wait for 3 hours in a room without enoth chairs for everyone and then we got entry to the cheapest lounge at the airport."
Cons: "Delay of 1 hour, waited on the plain extra hour."
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"

At our second check in the guy at the desk was very unfriendly. Not something you think oh he is happy he could help us. Not at all. He was very grumpy"

Cons: "Boarding process was a zoo. Notificationso on loud speaker every 5 minutes waking you up"
Pros: "wonderful staff."

Pros: "The food was good. The seats were comfortable, could have used a bit more leg room. Entertainment was great."

Cons: "Most concerning aspect is security. Very unlikely that I will choose Turkish airlines in the future"
Pros: "Security at the Ataturk airport. Airtight and curious. No wonder terrorists could only strike outside."
Cons: "Departure time is always ten tative with Turkish. Even though they clearly were expecting a late departure, passengers weren't notified. When boarding time was pushed back 30 minutes, it was already 22 minutes overdue (and it started much later then eve n the pushed back time). Terrible standards/"
Cons: "There is no free Wi Fi on Ataturk airport. They claim 2 hours, but it doesn't support Croatian 385 country access nr."

Pros: "Plan crew , pilots , services on plan and cleaning"
Cons: "Land crew , airport , and airline disorganized I wanted to complain about crew member , But she will not give her name or ID number, And when I snap a picture she calls the police , Her bag was inside her shirt and she will not revile"
Pros: "The flight attendant was welcoming at the door and the service was done efficiently."
Cons: "The tv monitor at the airport never bother to inform the passengers which was the boarding gate. After asking other passengers we deducted the gate number. The boarding was like a cattle drive bordering on a stampede since Aegean Airlines didn’t bother to divide passengers by groups, so people rushed to be first in line. We waited standing with our carryons for over 45minutes. Nobody knew what was happening or when they will start boarding. Naturally, when we finally got on board people where blocking the aisle because Aegean didn’t bother to board from back to front as it is usually done. The flight attendants were sweet but their English was almost unintelligible. My brother works and I worked for major airlines and have never seen anything so disorganized and unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats not particularly comfortable after a trans Atlantic flight. This review process needs a N/A category."
Pros: "I appreciated that they didn't charge me to check in my carry on bag."
Cons: "It is sad that they could not add this flight on to my Star Alliance without my card."
Pros: "Although they were at the right size snd weight. I was skipped dinner."
Cons: "Disembarkation via buses. Not great."
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: ".usually I like this company."
Cons: "There was 50% of the flight with a feeling that the is no air. It was suffocating."
Pros: "Plenty of legroom. Professional crew. They offered food on a relatively short flight. Very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Evrything was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on that flightes"
Pros: "Everything was fine, even above expected for low cost airline. Nice crew, free drinks."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better."
Pros: "We enjoy flying with Aegean, very good treatment for families with kids."
Pros: "on time, they were aware that we came from a connection and took care of everything. pleasant flight."
Pros: "I love flying Aegan - it is always comfortable and pleasant. Due to my own mistake I didn't order a kosher/vegetarian meal, which is why I rated the food "N/A". On flights this short there are no entertainment options which is fine I suppose :) overall, this is one of my favorite airlines to fly! Thanks!"
Cons: "too many fussy babies crying and screaming."
Cons: "As something that seems to happen pretty much constantly with Aegean... the plane arrived late and was delayed... which also in turn caused me to miss my scheduled bus to Jerusalem... but... what can you do... not everything is in our control unfortunately... I hope one day that the airline will organise itself and get things running a bit more smoothly.... Also... there was a meal on the flight but not option was given to those who are vegetarians to request a special meal at time of booking or later on while managing the booking... this was a bit unfair in my mind that my only option was a pasta and meat sauce meal so I did not get to eat... also... within my Star Alliance menber account I am listed as a vegetarian meal... so it should have been automatic just as it is on Swiss, Lufthansa, Etc... when I fly with them."
Cons: "With Kayak I booked Tel Aviv to Malta with 1 hour stop in Athens. The first flight was delayed by an hour hence making me lose my second flight. Aegean then booked me on a flight to Catania (Italy) for a different connection to Malta. Only that this Aegean flight was also delayed by an hour making me miss the second connection. Eventually I arrived in Malta 15 hours later than scheduled. Aegean customer service reps were extremely unhelpful and made this 10 times more difficult. I missed a whole vacation day, amassed roaming telephone charges and on top of that missed a reservation for Dinner in the Sky Malta."
Pros: "I liked that I was going to Israel – I didn't like being an hour and a half late losing my luggage and not knowing when I'm going to receive it"
Cons: "Lost my luggage – plain one and a half hours late"
Cons: "Delay 1 hour and 20 minutes at departure"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "They should work on their airport staff a little."
Cons: "it has nothing to do with aegean air but security at the flight was poor - we found out that by mistake my friend left a knife in his hand bag and it was not found untill we unpacked and saw it at home!!!"
Pros: "On time. Space. Great team."
Pros: "Clean, smooth, on time"
Cons: "Food was not interesting"
Pros: "Checkin and boarding was fast. Short flight; only one and a half hours."
Cons: "Food was minimal."
Pros: "every thing was ferfect"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "They should board the back rows first so that people are not jamming the isle, like they do in Brazil. The boarding ran 15 minutes late."
Pros: "Quick and direct flight."
Cons: "There wasn't any food or snacks. The airport was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "crew was supportive. food was ok. Check in on line was good. We could choose our seats. We flew with Aegean several times already. they are a reliable company."
Cons: "The flight was late by almost an hour. On arrival we were transferred to the terminal by buses after having to carry our troll all the way down the stairs."
Pros: "Clean Elegant Polite"
Cons: "Only wish it was in a desent hour and not in the middle of the night"
Pros: "cleen quiet and beutifull crew"
Cons: "I would like if you call me and I tell you. 972-508935554"
Cons: "I was surprised (like many other) that the ticket did not include any baggage. The cost for the baggage at the counter was more than double of the cost on the web site."
Cons: "RUDE SERVICE"
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Cons: "lost baggage"
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."

We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"

Pros: "that I succeeded to get home"
Cons: "air conditioning in the plane"
Pros: "The check in was very rude and moody for no reason. He was not accommodating with the seating arrangement"
Cons: "Ask the staff not to be so moody for no reason at all."
Cons: "Have WiFi"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "When the passengers walked into the terminal building from the tarmac in Otopeni Airport (Bucharest), BOTH wings of the double door could have been open! Only one was. Otherwise flight was fine."
Pros: "quick boarding (small plane, not many people). appreciated a free meal in economy class on a 1hr flight. Wow! relatively easy check in for my luggage."
Cons: "better signs regarding luggage check in, better seats. gate number changed many times. confusing and hard to hear announcements"

Pros: "The one good thing was that they delivered me and my luggage safe and sound to the destination."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, very uncomfortable and extremely little legroom, no blanket/pillow, dirty/smelly bathroom, ran out of almost all supplies in the bathroom. Entertainment - nonexistent. I would not choose this airline if it weren't for the price."

Cons: "Flight was late and I almost missed my connection to Tel Aviv plane."
Cons: "40 minuets delay Bad food No intertatment"
Cons: "Hi, We've booked the flight using Kayak, with VAYAMA agency. It was clearly stated in the e-ticket that we were allowed a baggage of 23KG piece for our infant baby. (it was a lap-ticket, no seat) When we arrived at the check-in counter, they said that because it was a lap ticket, we are allowed only a baggage of 10KG piece. We were delayed at the checkin counter with a baby in our hands, and humiliated (as people in the line behind us started to get nervous). I'm definitely gonna write a mail to VAYAMA agency. And I'm extremely disappointed. At the end, after maybe 20 minutes (which seems like forever) they let us check in the baggage we had."
Cons: "30 min late"
Pros: "All 4 flight attendants were smiling and very courteous ...:-)"
Cons: "Such a short flight"
Pros: "All was fine. Since the flight from Bucharest to Chisinau is only an hour, the tiny plane was fine."
Cons: "Since the plane is so tiny, you have to turn over your cabin baggage at planeside, then get it back when you land. The airline took my hand luggage in good condition, and when I got it back, one zipper pull had been snapped in half. I tried to file a claim when I landed, but airport personnel said that for cabin baggage, there was nothing they could do."
Pros: "On time, direct flight, friendly crew"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "The babuins that got drunk and made o lot of noise"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Cons: "I tried to make a change to the reservation. They had 4 different romanian phone numbers and all were either busy all day and cut off the call or left me on hold for hours. I finally gave up. Not only did I lose the possibility of a change with a fee I lost the entire reservation completely. I do not recommend them ever if customer service is your expectation."
Cons: "No vegetarian food option. Pretty poor food as a whole. No entertainment unless one connected to their WiFi. Crew rather basic as far as manners are concerned. I got treated better on Romania-based low cost flights."
Pros: "Great price, nice crew, decent flight overall"
Cons: "The food was terrible! No entertainment system"
Pros: "It was comfortable with good price."
Cons: "I always check in in advance and I did this time as well. However, Tarom website did not offer the option for a vegetarian meal while I checked in. I tried again at the counter and was told I need to call 48 hours in advance for a vegetarian meal. I did not find this information on their website nor does it make sense to me that a vegetarian meal should be so hard to get. They should improve this. I had nothing to eat on the flight :-("
Pros: "צוות מקצועי טיסה נעימה ובזמן אוכל דרוש שיפור שתיה בשפע נעים לטוס טרום,,"
Cons: "אוכל טעון שיפור לא נורא כל כך לזמן קצר,,"

Pros: "The sandwich was yummy."
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "Crew was great and food was good and plentiful despite being only a quick flight"
Pros: "fast boarding thru automated ticket barr reading"
Cons: "On your way to the airplane, on the connecting tunnel the ticket and passport was checked again by an attendant. Why? The purpose of fast boarding was defeated by the old system again!"
Pros: "CREW IN BOTH FLIGHTS WAS NICE AND HELPFUL"
Cons: "NO AIR CONDITION DURIND THE FLIGHT (WAS BUT DID NOT DO ANYTHING)' MIXED FOOD (CHEESE AND CHICKEN TOGETHER AND NO WAY TO ORDER IN ADVANCE), VERY NICE CREW BOTH SIDED BUT RUDE GROUND STUFF IN ROMANIA,"
Pros: "The flights are announced once in the boarding area, but there is no announcement as to boarding. The signal to board is a flashing "boarding" sign in the departure lounge. At that moment everyone gets up and rushes to the line. Both priority and economy sections are boarded together. So, fastest runner wins. But it works. We boarded more quickly than any flight I've been on, and although boarding started 10 minutes later than scheduled, we departed exactly on time."
Pros: "Exactly on time to the minute Great sandwiches Clean new aircraft"
Cons: "The flight was long enough that some entertainment, even just the ability to plug in my own device to charge and use would have made the flight better."

Cons: "It left a lot to be desired for a Business Class fare."
Cons: "Punctuality. My flight was delayed over 1.5 hour."

Cons: "flight was delayed 4 hours"
Cons: "The food honestly could have been better for business class. And the first flight wasn't actually business class seats which was disappointing."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "The check-in opened a bit late from Israel and I did not plan on it at all but I look at what I had better things so I think there were a lot of good things here so I do not look at check-in"
Cons: "Better punctuality"
Pros: "Seat comfortable. Entertainment great"
Cons: "Boarding was late, "snack" was a small wafer. Flight crew hid behind a curtain for most of the flight."

I was in a row with 3 seats filled and then there were other rows completely empty. So the seat selection was not accurate at all."
