Greece is part of the European Union and the Schengen agreement. Canadian citizens who wish to visit Greece do not need a visa if their stay does not exceed 90 days. However, be aware that your stays in the Schengen area are cumulative, so if you are planning to visit multiple European countries, make sure that your stay does not exceed 90 days within a 180-day period.

Air Canada and Air Transat offer direct flights to Greece, connecting Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Montreal-Pierre Trudeau International Airport (YUL) with Greece's main international hub, Athens International Airport. If you are flying from other Canadian cities, your flight will probably include a layover either at one of the major Canadian hubs or at a European airport such as London Heathrow (LHR) or Frankfurt Airport (FRA), depending on your airline.
Most international flights land at Athens International Airport, which is the perfect starting point if you want to travel to various regions or islands as it offers many connecting flights across the country. If you want to explore the northern part of Greece, including Mount Olympus, consider flying into Thessaloniki Airport (SKG), the main airport in Northern Greece.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to technical issues, boarding crew said there was a hole in the plane and that it might be canceled. After a long delay we finally tookoff. Plane was very cramped and very little room for the legs. Food and entertainment were average and fine."

Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The boarding process need improvement. The sits are very tight."
Cons: "Boarding was not clear! We were waiting for an announcement and none came. We got up when we saw the seating area clearing out. Earlt day International departures are sheer madness. The Check-in and security lines were crazy. Will take later flight next time."
Pros: "Good, in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "There must be a way for crew to intervene and help parents with screaming infants or disruptive children. The flight noise/comfort was miserable"
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 1 hour at least after overlay of 4 hours. I missed my flight from Vienna to Yerevan and the portion of my trip was detoured to Moscow and from there to Yerevan instead of 3 hours took me 8 hours. As a result of rushing and running in Vienna to catch my flight to Yerevan I feel and injured my hip, I would like a compensation , Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 703-609-8649"
Pros: "Overall everything was great"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working"
Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Nasty passport control person at gate check in"
Pros: "11min for airplane docking and going through passport control . I have travelled the world but never seen a more efficient way than at Zurich airport.kudos."
Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Pros: "Crew were good, apart from forgetting at breakfast time that I had ordered gluten free food. Food was OK but not memorable."
Cons: "Business class is not as roomy as other airlines. My partner had to climb over me to reach the aisle, there is very little storage space and seat size is quite small. Choice of movies is limited."
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."
Cons: "It was a 2 hour 40 minute flight. No entertainment."
Pros: "Swiss airlines is just like a flying ikea store - very sad"
Cons: "Nothing really , seats are terrible , food is bad Zürich is super nice"
Pros: "The staff was courteous and effective. The pilots made up time after waiting for a few connecting passengers."
Cons: "The food was edible but not up to the usual Swiss Air standard."
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "Large person next to me spilled over into my seat. Large people should sit with folks like themselves"
Pros: "Super service, nice crew. On time and flawless baggage transfer to my final destination. Could not be more pleasant experience. I would recommend travel with Swiss to all travelers. Thank you"
Cons: "Very late gate change during boarding process resulting in untimely departure."
Pros: "Swiss is always a tad nicer than the alternatives"
Pros: "We actually did not fly with Swiss Airlines to Thessaloniki. Our flight was re-booked on another flight the following day with Aegean."
Cons: "See above about missed flight because of SWISS and no help or communication. Still haven't left and not happy."
Cons: "Only one agent to check in economy passengers two agents for first class and 2 or 3 for special needs. There were many more economy passengers and it took a lot longer to be serviced more agents for economy would have been more equitable"
Pros: "One on the plane service and food were very good. In flight movies limited in number of choices"
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour because they couldn't fuel the plane and had to wait for trucks. Did not update the board at the gate with boarding times and people waited on long lines unnecessarily because they did not update the boarding times. Very frustrating."
Cons: "Checking bags took longer than I would have liked."
Pros: "zurich a great airport."
Cons: "cheese roll"
Pros: "Great experience. GOod comfortable flight, crew and overall services"
Cons: "I wish there were more bollywood albums and more bollywood movies...to choose from"
Pros: "Excellent food - 5 star restaurant quality. Great service - always aims to please."
Cons: "IFE with very few options. Boarding aircraft with Bus - horrible."
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "Best entertainment package of Movies/TV/Food available on commercial airlines."
Pros: "Easy and comfortable. Service was good and with a smile. The planes were clean and arrived on time for my connection."
Cons: "The WC was so small I could barely even stand in it."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating. I LOVE that we were given ice cream and chocolate - only wish I'd been given more chocolate. They came by with drinks often and made sure that we were well hydrated."
Cons: "It was only an hour long flight, and I slept most of the way. From what I could tell, the staff seemed friendly. Only complaint would be that on the way to the plane (we had to take a bus) we were packed in like sardines and it was very hot. Once we got to the plane, we were left standing in the bus for a couple minutes. Because of the heat, I thought I was going to pass out."
Pros: "The flight was quick. Overall a smooth and pleasant one. I didn't have any real interaction with the crew except to exchange the usual pleasantries of saying hello and goodbye. So to be fair, I can't rate the level of service provided."
Cons: "The flight was fine, unfortunately, there was nowhere to sit at the gate. The majority of passengers stood about waiting or sitting on the floor since the few seats located at the gate had been taken. A five or 10 minute wait would have been one thing, but a 45 minute wait is another, particularly if there are older passengers or small children who have to wait."
Cons: "We have bought our seats, but in the airport it was found that our seats were assigned to somebody else and nothing could be done to give them back to us"
Pros: "Flight attendants were sympathetic"
Cons: "The first flight was cancelled after we sat on the plane for over an hour. We all had to wait in line at the transfer desk. Then our second flight attempt- boarding was awful, total chaos. The flight was delayed because boarding was so long. Then once we landed late, there was an issue deboarding the flight with the stairs and we were stuck for 40 mins for this process."
Cons: "Was not able to perform online checkin and thsu was not able to pick seats."
Pros: "Upgraded to business, new 777 plane, good snack"
Cons: "No headphones"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "For such a LONG flight, grateful to ask Turkish Airlines to make available bigger aircrafts."
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Pros: "We were told by terminal staff in Istanbul that the fkught was on Turkish Airlines.We waited in line at the first ticket counter and then we were sent to a second ticket counter where we waited in line again. We were sent to a 3rd counter where the Supervisor was chatting with a lady for 20 minutes. When we reached the counter we were told it was too late to board and we had missed our flight even though there were still 35 minutes to flight time. Turkish Airlines staff would not help us any further and we had to go purchase another ticket."
Pros: "We arrived in Athens eventually"
Cons: "People were made to wait outside in the cold airport bus for half an hour. The ground crew gave no explanation for the delay. After heavy protests, they let the waiting passengers back into the terminal. Supposedly the pilot was sick, but there was no communication at all from the airline about the cause of the delay or how long it would last."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are economy in business class. Dont fly business no need tonpay extra"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Cons: "Missed this flight due a layover and had to wait in the airport overnight."
Cons: "The airport in Turkey had no a/c it was sweltering and packed. It smelled to high hell. Boarding was crazy with people shoving and pushing and cutting each other to get throug"
Pros: "Entertainment and food was decent."
Cons: "Delayed and baggage claim took over 45mins."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Shake all the time,vomited"
Pros: "Punctual in terms of reaching destination, all else average."
Cons: "Less leg space, pantry service below expectations."
Pros: "there was only single screen entertainment every four rows or so. Nothing interesting."
Cons: "There was no USB ports to keep a phone charged. There was no power outlets between seats to keep a phone charged."
Pros: "The crew is very nice and try to make the flight experience easier."
Cons: "They lost my luggage, and this is not the first time either"
Cons: "Last minute gate assigned and then changed"
Pros: "-Boarding was easy - The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- The leg spacing was not sufficient - The sandwich served was average"
Pros: "Luggage policy, helpful ground and air crew. Price."
Cons: "IST stoppover, damaged luggages."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."
Cons: "When boarding the flight from Turkey, to Mumbai , we had to climb up the ladder with our hand luggage.Being senior citizen and traveling in Busniss class was very hard for us."
Cons: "I was selected to seat near the window before departure dare unfortunately i found my self in the middle of the people, so dissapointed"

Pros: "Finally got a vegan sandwich that saved my life after the 13 hour flight before this one!"
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Pros: "N O T H I N G"
Cons: "Very unorganized and poor communication services"
Pros: "I liked everything."
Cons: "departure time changed 3 times"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."
Cons: "Original flight was delayed and this was the next flight had to wait 6 hours"
Pros: "THis reflect in particular the flight from Boston to Instanbul, a long flight. I could see any movie (great selection) and had two full meals as well nice staff. I appreciate this in particular that many airlines cut on these cost/ anemities. Thank you"
Cons: "Not much!!"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."
Pros: "Having every single person I spoke with pass me on to another party. Apparently customer complaints is really no one's job. They're extremely motivated to have you find someone else to correct your problem. Rest assured it is "your problem" I was told quite explicitly that my missed connection flight and lost luggage was not their problem."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Couldn't even tell me when my bag was checked despite the scan tag they attached to my boarding pass when they weighed it and checked it in back in New York. They legitimately had no idea if my bag ever left the United States. It took 3 days to locate my baggage while I was trying to celebrate my anniversary with my wife in Athens. being without your luggage for half a week in a foreign country is not even remotely fun. I had to wait around missing tours and reservations trying to find our luggage most of our first 48 hours in Greece. After giving up on getting our stuff we had to waste a chunk of time shopping to replace our clothing and toiletries. Despite having purchased the travel insurance I'm still fighting a month after our trip ended to be reimbursed for the clothes we had to buy just to begin our vacation. Again they continue to stonewall by transferring our complaint calls endlessly and forwarding our emails with "new" case numbers each time. Basically what this accomplishes is they can't ever find the case number they updated it to and insist that the prior case number is listed as resolved. Since they say it's resolved there is nothing anyone can do to help. Not sure if I'll ever get any satisfaction out of this debacle."
Cons: "Boarding was devoid of any announcements or organization, and was just a gaggle of people shuffling towards a gate."
Pros: "If one puts seats in relaxed position, other travelers complain so why have the option of putting seat in relaxed position"
Pros: "Friendly crew. They even offered complimentary hot food on our 1 hour flight"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It never happened."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Old plane. Boarding was not so nice."
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"
Cons: "They switched the gate without telling anyone"
Pros: "All was great as mentioned earlier."
Pros: "Very helpful and respectfull crew"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins after the designated time"
Cons: "They lost one of my bags but I got it in the afternoon the next day."
Pros: "AS AN AIRLINE IWILL NEVER FLY AGAIN BECAUSE INSTEAD OF 5.5 HRS FROM STW TO ATH MY TRIP LASTED 14.5 HRS.THE CREW ON BOTH AIR PLANES EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "there was no entertainment no pillows no blanket inside of the plane was kind of cold and the flight attendants were quite indifferent to your needs I couldnt lower the number of stars but I give it 1 star all around!!"
Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Staff was incredibly rude. There was no last call made for the bathrooms, I'm 6 1/2 months pregnant, before they announce our descent I get up to pee. I get yelled at. I sit down, 10 minutes later the guy comes up to me and asks me if I really need to go. I said of course. He opened the bathroom for me and as soon as I sit to pee a girl is knocking bloody murder telling me they're going to land the plane and I'm taking to long. I had been in there all of 30 seconds. I finished quickly and returned to my seat. We didn't land for another 30 minutes. Worst service EVER!"
Pros: "I got such an amazing deal on this flight that I could barely believe how incredible my experience was. Will DEFINITELY fly Turkish Airlines again!!"
Cons: "No problems at all"
Cons: "Delta flies a lot of the CRJ planes, even on relatively longer trips. Traveling first class, the seats are a little wider than in coach and have a little more leg room, but calling it "first class" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's more like what coach used to be before the days of the flying sardine cans."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Messed up my luggage in Atlanta. Gate said baggage was going to domestic. Ended up in international terminal. Added almost an hour of back and forth between terminals."
Pros: "Good experience"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being on time. Trapped in plane for 2 hours"
Cons: "Great flight!"
Pros: "good flight, inflight menu and movie library"
Cons: "rude bag drop off kiosk"
Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."
Cons: "They canceled my flight"
Pros: "We eventually got to Atlanta."
Cons: "Delta is flying a lot of commuter planes, which are pretty cramped. We usually fly first class, and the seating is essentially the same as what coach used to be. There's nothing "first class" about it. And of course, the flight was hours late."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Delayed departure due to late crew arrival. Not a huge deal."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."
Cons: "I had a small window for my transfer and Delta gate agents, knowing I was on the way to the gate, closed the gate early now I'm stuck in Detroit for the night at low end economy hotel."
Pros: "Decent drinks and food. Attentive crew"
Cons: "The lady who sat beside me kept asking questions"
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"
Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."
Pros: "Take off on time, arrived early, pleasant flight attendant"
Cons: "Had to sit on tarmac after arriving early"
Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Pros: "Atlanta airport is super duper organized!!! No problem getting tons of people through passport control & customs! Lots of well English speaking guiding staff- i was delighted!"
Cons: "On the international aircraft, 767, the monitors were smaller and hab on the domestic flights flight, the picture was way too dark to enjoy & sound out of one earpiece only"
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Cons: "Customs never to hire more agents to work in the early mornings."
Pros: "On time, and pleasant flight. Flight attendants were first class: very competent."
Cons: "I slept all the way, so can’t say whether anything went wrong with the flight."
Cons: "Not much to read"
Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."
Pros: "Seat 2G Orderly boarding and plane clean"
Cons: "Asked to have all the food (appetizer, main course, etc) served together , as they advertise, but was told that service wasn't available. Ordered dinner, was almost as tasty as a Stouffers meal (it was some type of glop of lamb). 7 hours into flight the menu advertised a warm chocolate chip cookie, asked for one was told they THOUGHT they were out, came back about an hour later said the found one, but it wasn't warm, so I passed (not a real fan of eating food they found) About 8 hours into flight , the attendant said out of the blue that they were sorry about not providing the meal all together as requested, but that the other attendant didn't know they offered that service."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, friendly staff."
Cons: "The wifi was not working during this flight. The ceiling light/fan controls are too close to the window for the aisle seat to reach them. During boarding, it was too hot. The boarding process was delayed 10-15 minutes without any updates."
Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"
Pros: "We got on the plane and it went to where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "Crew member Lori was exceptional. Great detail to safety and customer service!"
Pros: "Horrible experience! Flight was delayed over an hour with no announcement. Seat was reassigned from front aisle seat to rear window Seat. Fortunately, it was a short fkight."
Pros: "I got upgraded to comfort + which was great. quick flight, was even early"
Pros: "Fligth were on time"
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Atlanta was 2:30 min Left at 6:10 arrive at 8:30 roughly Tried twice to get to my connection earlier and get 9:30 instead of 12:09 fligth to Daytona Delta was not flexible to allow me to book saying i did not have 55 min in between fligth which i had than lear n it will cost $75.00 to change the fligth - What? Very disappointed of Delta - lost 3 hrs at the airport today"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 2+ hours, Delta (running the flight for westjet) sent 1 email about the flight being delayed to 4:45 which was inconsistent with the gate signage and agent who said 3:45, flight ended up leaving at 5:45PM. No reasons were provided beyond the incoming flight from LGA hadn't come in. Why hadn't it come in? When could we expect to leave YUL? No answers."
Pros: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"
Pros: "So many movies to watch. Keep it up!"
Cons: "The food was too sweet and salty."
Pros: "I love the media that is INCLUDED in the price of your ticket on Delta Flights. That sets Delta apart for me."
Cons: "Seats are very small."
Cons: "Awful experience. Delta left us stranded on the runway for 3 hours. Pathetic airline."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "I liked the new plane! It seemed like there was just a bit more room. Compared to my flight going out with American, Delta is a much nicer experience."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "More comfortable seating."
Pros: "On time and the staff were very good. The food was not great, buy good."
Cons: "Tried and was unable to choose my seat in advance for flight and thus had to wait until I arrived at the gate. Thus I was unable to sit with my daughter. Was promised seats could be chosen 24 hours in advance, but was not allowed to either on line or via phone."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tried their best to accommodate"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and once in the plane more delay followed. Food was pasta (again!) while entertainment was non-existent. Flight is long enough to show at least a route map."
Pros: "Crew was good overall"
Cons: "Food was overheated and bland in taste. No on board entertainement"
Pros: "Food was good & they served a full meal!"
Cons: "Crew appeared annoyed with everyone. No entertainment provided."
Pros: "Boarding was great. There is priority boarding available for those booked on connecting long haul premium economy flights."
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable. For a 2 hour flight, it was okay. Any longer would have been difficult."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "Lufthansa is always high quality"
Cons: "I dislike how one must stow the entertainment system so early before landing"
Pros: "The engagement of the crew. The coffee and cake. The attendant offered to help me with my bag to the door of the aircraft. The same attendant remembered to give me coffee later and provided the stir stick just as I was able ask for one. I felt cared for."
Cons: "They ran out of the protein meal selections.e.g. Chicken I think. Pasta with sauce and one small cube of cheese with a little salad does not qualify as a balanced mealThe attendant tried to make up for it by giving me more cheese blocks."
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "The crew was really good. The food was much better than my cross the Atlantic flight. There wasn’t any entertainment so I am not sure how to rate it."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is not very good. Why does a passenger who has cleared security in the US have to do it again in Frankfurt? It is an unnecessary requirement that causes some passengers to miss their connecting flight. I will give them a pass on clearing immigration But going thru security....no."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"
Pros: "plane was nice"
Cons: "Flight waited on late passengers thus leaving over 1 hour late. We missed our connecting flight which caused numerous issues."
Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."
Cons: "Air was stuffy."
Cons: "Still in Munich."
Pros: "They even filled my water bottle a couple of times in addition to numerous glasses at my seat."
Pros: "Equipment, crew"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was disorganized."
Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Crew was good. Comfort level was good."
Cons: "The requested meal was not delivered. However, the crew bring it from the extra they had with other classes."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance did not arrive at gate."
Pros: "I liked the ability to have some air circulation, which was not offered in the first flight, so that was nice. The ride was smooth, quick, and mostly comfortable, although I did wish I could have a little more elbow room. There was no entertainment, but that was also fine because the flight was fairly short. Overall, I don’t have any complaints."
Cons: "Small flight, and just a little bit of elbow room..but no complaints (besides the crying children, but that’s usually a given on a commercial flight)."
Cons: "They don’t have order while boarding No space for the carry on- they didn’t ask to check them for free."
Pros: "Overall good quality service as usual."
Cons: "The flight was 1 1/2 hours delayed, but that was due to weather in Europe..."
Cons: "All flights in Frankfurt boarded via jet bridge. Flight to Greece boarded via a bus. Freezing weather in Frankfurt. Are Germans prejudiced to Greek passengers?"
Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."
Cons: "Missed my connection due to airline delay and was put on a flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "On all my flights everything was on time and ready to go. Crew was super helpful and friendly. Ready great service and constant visual of crew for us if we needed them. Was not expecting to be fed sooo much on my flights which was awesome! Seats were comfortable, pillow and blanket were a nice accommodation as well! The entertainment was awesome - made 8 hours quickly disappear! Will definitely fly with Lufthansa again when I go overseas!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "There was no food included, although the flight wasn't low cost, we didn't even get drinks, not even water. We asked for a glass of water from the crew, but they were busy selling the food and forgot about us."
Pros: "Flight attendants we good"
Cons: "Business class seats were just regular seats without a 3rd person. Legroom bad and seats narrow. Not good value b"
Pros: "The service and food was great."
Cons: "The bathrooms were pretty disgusting, with urine on the floor. Perhaps they could be checked on and cleaned."
Pros: "This is the first time I actually enjoyed a meal on a flight. It was ravioli in tomato sauce, just perfect! Superfriendly cabin crew"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful. Flight was half empty so it was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was not very clean."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal choice not offered"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Comortable seats, great service, combined with good food and entertainment made for an enjoyable flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was poorly executed"
Cons: "A man next to me took a picture of me when he thought I was asleep."
Pros: "Everything seemed to run smoothly."
Cons: "No issues this leg"
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding was like a "free-for-all", the gate agents exerted NO control at all. The departure was delayed about 15 minutes (no big thing" but then we sat in our seats for an additional 45-50 minutes for a total of more than an hour!. This after an 11+ hour first leg."
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "The on-board crew could not have been better......their professionalism, service, attentiveness was the best that I have experience in Economy class travel. The plane was clean, the toilets were nice throughout the flight. The seats were comfortable and noticeably wider than some other carriers offer. The food was MUCH better on Lufthansa flights that originate in Europe than flights that originate in the US. I will definitely fly again."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos, I have never, even in India, experienced less organization of a boarding process. Actually, there were no lines, just a crowd of passengers pushing and shoving towards two gates. This was made worse by the occasional golf cart trying to move thru this throng of passengers. Most dangerous was that the flow of passengers down the escalators was not regulated, when I reached the bottom of the escalator there was no place to go, I was pushed awkwardly to the side by passengers piling up behind me. I am 67 years old, and found this very unsafe to my self and others. I hope that no injuries occurred."
Pros: "Extra leg room in the emergency exit area was great for a tall person. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and they switched the gates. The flight was overbooked. No entertainment offered."
Pros: "It departed and arrived on time. The boarding process was very efficient thanks to Frankfurt's automated ticked checking gates."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Food is looking not fresh and quality is cheep ...."
Cons: "The service with an awful crew !!! Just plain spiteful and arogant even if we flew in Business class"
Pros: "Good flight , bad flight delay and luggage."
Cons: "To be on time"
Cons: "1:20 min delay for a 35 min flight (less then 200km on the road). It is even worse if it is during the night (aircraft landed at 0:40 instead of 23:20"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "My seat would not recline at all"
Pros: "Very comfortable journey, leaving on time, arriving on time"
Pros: "I like the food and servise"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on the first day. I had to call to find out that I was rebooked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "Liked all except the food"
Cons: "Did not like the food. I specifically selected vegeterian meal however was served vegan meal which I did not enjoy"
Cons: "Booked a ticket with luggage and got email saying I am at economy class. When got to check in told me I have economy light and I had to pay again for luggage. Dissaster. Contacted priceline- did not care."
Pros: "Flight was in schedule, friendly staff"
Cons: "Let some people pass first even though they arrived after us and we al had same tickets (or gave preference for no apparent reason), I did tell thecgate agent and he apologized"
Cons: "Food was ok. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Service was great, the stewardess's were very professional and very caring without being too personal which is great for me .Every was done quickly and professionally with a great sense of efficiency and purpose .Hard to explain but so different from other airlines . Multimedia was phenomenal"
Cons: "Food portions were smallish but acceptable .Seat reservation service got totally mixed up ,reserved one seat and got another .Maybe software glitch ,needs to be fixed."
Pros: "Again as in previous flight very efficient professional and pleasant staff ."
Cons: "Seat reservation system didn't work ,reserved one seat and got another.Food portions were smallish .No internet over the Atlantic .While the multimedia service was phenomenal I guess there could have been a larger variety and more episodes would have been good as well ."
Pros: "Staff were always courteous."
Pros: "I liked the crew on the flight."
Cons: "I was frustrated with the staff at the desk in the airport, as we boarded 20miutes late and they did not feel it necessary to give any comment on the situation. Everyone was puzzled as to why we were not boarding, or if there was a problem. Even the screens did not show any change."
Pros: "The whole flight was very nice"
Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Pros: "Boarding/deplaning quick Left on time"
Cons: "Food -too much starch Only chicken No breakfast Bathrooms were dirty"
Pros: "The economy seats had as much leg room as the Premium Economy seats on Luthansa, so the comfort over a long flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "The charge for checking a 2nd bag was $100 which I thought was much too high. Food was average and not enough given that we were on the plane for over 10 hours."
Pros: "Flt was great - service was great"
Pros: "Ground crew was very kind"
Cons: "My ordered vegetarian meal was missing on the way back :("
Pros: "Could not tell that I need gluten free meal. And the early check-in didn't work."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment included so many mediocre films, with hardly a classic among them. I suppose those are cheaper, but I would think both Austrian and Lufthansa (they seemed to be using almost identical entertainment systems with almost identical offerings) would benefit from limiting their movie options much more towards movies with, say, above a 70% Rotten Tomatoes rating or above average box office sales. Even if they had fewer films, say 40 instead of 56, the ones they have would be more popular."
Pros: "Well, at least they didn't overbook it like the horror the connector to LAX was"
Cons: "Waited longer to start boarding the plane than the flight took. There are 2 gates in Lugano "airport" and no plane or flight at the other gate. Shouldn't be this difficult. The inflight crew was nice and attentive for the little time we saw them but the ground crew never ev n bothered to make an announcement. Just had us sitting there like a heard of cattle."
Cons: "Food I think getting worse."
Cons: "The flight from Budapest to Vienna was delayed so we missed our connection to Tel Aviv. The behavior of the ground staff who were supposed to assist us was outrageous. They behaved like a low cost company with one answer to any request, and this is the word "NO". It does not seem logical that we ever go with Austrian again. We do deserve a compensation for the delay and the behavior."
Pros: "IT WOES HAREBELL. 4 HOURS BEFORE THE FLIGHT THEY TELL NE THETA WE DOESN`T HAVE PLIES ON THE FLIGHT. THE MAN IN DESC 377 GAVE TO ME BIRDING CARD TO GET G. IN STAND-BY. THER FLIGHT 599 NOT ON THE BORD. AT THE HEAD OFFICE OFF THE OSTREIN CCOMPANY IN GAT G TELL TO WAIT. HALF HOUR LATER STILL THE FLIGHT NO ON THE BORD AND I RAN EAGEN TO OFFICE OF OSTRIEN END NOW THEY SAD IT`S MESTEK AND I IN GET F . NOW WE MAST MAKE THE SECURITY CHECK OVER AGAIN . WE RAN TO GET F TO FLOOR DAWN . IN THE END...WE GET BORDING CARD WITH SEPARATED SETS."
Cons: "RUDENESS INSOLENCE RATTLE, RUN-AROUND MISTAKE, OR EVIL"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we weren't notified."
Cons: "- My flight was rescheduled twice. Very short connection time, they said that there are no other options but actually there were other options. - Bad web check-in service. There were errors/bugs in the check-in service."
Pros: "Staff, seats (exit)"
Cons: "No screen,no entertainment, the food was very bad even for airlines food, for a 4 hours flight cancel the food and make a cheaper flight."
Cons: "Although AU blamed late arrival of the plane from Russia, fact is that the plane was at least one hour at the dock before boarding and the AU team was just extremely slow to get boarding done. We were all invited 45 minutes before boarding to board, when apologies were already offered for the slight delay, which turned into 1.5 hour overall. Worst is the lack of communication during the 45 minute wait, for which I have little understanding seeing many older people clearly suffering."
Pros: "My waffle and coffee"
Cons: "Very small seats with hardly any legroom. Flight delayed 2 hours. Nasty attendant told me my bag was too big for overhead compartment. It wasn't."
Cons: "Poor service, will not fly again with this airline"
Cons: "very tight connection in VIE after a small late departure from LHR but we make the connection."
Cons: "Austrian Air has really slipped in its food-product.. Lufthansa put out snacks (cookies etc; even small sandwiches to 'help yourself from' going from Atlanta to Frankfort which was nice). But not the case with Austrian The serving of it was fine. Restroom options are less than adequate too."
Pros: "I like the cotrious service. But I wish this international flight would take two suitcases instead of one"
Pros: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Cons: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed leaving Sofia which made connecting flights for many people a rush and very stressful. People were pulled to the front of the plane and told to rush to catch their flights. My bag didn't make my connecting flight but Austrian delivered it 2 days later."
Cons: "Boarding process was incredibly slow, which delayed our flight."
Cons: "While boarding, the AC was off due to a mechanical issue. The plane was uncomfortably hot, but the pilot and flight attendants were appropriately apologetic. The issue was resolved once we took off."
Pros: "Smooth and fast"
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Cons: "It was advertised as Austrian Airlines but when the details came through afterwards only then did it state that it was a United Airlines flight. So, I can't rate this flight because it had nothing to do with Austrian Airlines. You need to update your site so that it clearly states "Operated by..." when people are booking."
Pros: "I am gluten free, and the stewardess knew what foods I could eat of the desserts and snacks, and I appreciated that there was food that I could eat."
Pros: "I like the personalized service and the understanding crew."
Cons: "For the amount of people flying into and out of Thera, the check-in system could be improved."
Pros: "No problems."
Cons: "Did not make this connecton, was directed to Frankfurt"
