Athens - Kythira
Domestic
We flew from Athens to Kythera on this short 40-minute flight, both flights OA056 and the return OA057 were delayed by around 10 to 30 minutes on both flights. The flight is a small turbo prop (ATR 72-600), which was comfortable with plenty of leg room. The cabin crew were friendly and appeared helpful to px that required help, they managed to issue a drink and a biscuit in the 35-minute flight too!! Both flights were comfortable and I would fly them again. The booking process was straight forward and their ongoing communication was excellent. They communicate every step by SMS, even your baggage check!!

Bodrum District - Athens
Europe
We decided to fly from Milos to Athens to save time. Big mistake! Always take the ferry and be in control of your luggage. We arrived at Athens and waited at the luggage carousel for more than 30mins. Other passengers started noticing their air tags showed their luggage was still at Milos. They didn't even bother to notify us they hadn't loaded our luggage. Probably due to weight restrictions on their tiny planes. After a long weight at Aegean baggage services we were told "this happens all the time". If you have connecting flights, like most on our flight, your holiday will be screwed. DO NOT FLY WITH CHECKED LUGGAGE!

Athens - Paros
Domestic
Absolute hack of an airline. After travelling for 36 hours on our fourth leg from Atlanta, GA to Paros the attendant told us it would be $40 per bag for a 45 minute flight without even weighing them. Would not recommend this airline to my worst enemy.

Naxos - Athens
Domestic
Naxos is a very small airport (one gate small). As we all were waiting to board we saw the airport crew load all the luggage, 15 mins goes by and they all were talking with each other and something looked wrong. Then we saw the pilot come around and talk with the crew, this went on for about 5 more minutes. We were about 15 minutes delayed at this point. Then the crew starts unloading the luggage, so all of us waiting figured the flight was getting canceled. Nope, they started boarding us. Several of us asked multiple ground crew and on plane staff "What's going on with our luggage?" No one would answer or even acknowledge. Get to Athens and no luggage. Not a surprise as we saw them pull our bags and we have tile trackers in them. Stand in line hour plus to file out claim. Zero care from any staff that over half our flight is filing claims. "This might be a few days" we get told. If you have already left the county they will be shipped to your home in a few weeks. Get told we will get updates via text message and email. Need to spend our first night in Athens shopping for clothes and necessities for the next day. Wake up with no updates from the airline but my location tag says it was at the port of naxos (not the airport, the boat port). A few hours later my wife's bags location tag says port of Paros, a different island. Still no updates from Airline. My wife and I do a tour, in our new clothes, and after see our location tags at Athens airport. Still no communication from Airline. We call twice and are on hold for 30 minutes each time with no answer and their system hangs up on you after 30 minutes. We go have late lunch and think about driving the 45 minutes to the airport to get them ourselves. Decide we will call one more time when we get back to hotel. When we get back, our luggage is sitting in lobby of hotel. Never once was contacted by Airline. We will never fly with them again and will advise everyone we know to stay away as well.

Athens - Naxos
Domestic
They lost my bag. No helps you fill out a form and it goes into the abyss. Still waiting for by bag. They told me I needed to follow up myself. They can't find my bag in the system even though I have my tag number. The people at the airport are useless. I had medication on board has some with me but not enough for the whole trip the rest was put in my luggage. Their customer service id HORRIBLE!
