Dear Sirs, I took an Olympic Air flight from Milan to Sydney and must say that on my way back I was DISGUSTED by the rudeness and appalling manners of your staff in the Sydney International Airport. It all come down to what kind of training your people in Australia receive...or if they are trained at all! We all know that Australians are naturally somewhat impolite, but what I have seen was a complete lack of respect towards passengers and staff even laughing at the face of customers! Do you… Read Full Review

I am extremely sad and dissapointed regarding my recent flight experience with Olympic Air and the ground service management of the problems. I planned a holiday in Milos. The return flight from Milos to Athens on 8.09 was delayed 1.45, for that reason I missed the connection to Bucharest. I was told to go the Olympic Air ticket desk and there they told me that there was no place for flight in that day, no place for flight for the morning flight of Olympic to Bucharest for the next day… Read Full Review

Baggage delayed 60 hours within Greece - hey knew it was left behind but no attempt to move it and till many compalaints from many passenegers.
There internal reservations and communications system seem to consist of an abacus and smoke signals.Never never never use them. Have flown with many airlines all over the world and have had some bad… Read Full Review

Recently flew from London Heathrow to Athens on Olympic Airlines. This was the first time I've travelled using this airline, and was pleasantly surprised.
The flight was on time, so no problems there. The staff were friendly and polite, and seemed to be looking after their passengers with ease.
The aircraft itself was very nice! The seats surprisingly made you feel like you were travelling premium economy, or even business class... lots of leg room!
The food was pretty good, nothing special… Read Full Review

Although I am greek I had bad experience in the past with OA. Besides the great safety, everything else was quite disappointing. But the new OA is really great. On time, friendly stewardesses, brand new aircrafts and of course some of the best pilots in Europe. Since my first trip with the new OA, I decided to fly with them whenever possible. I hope that the new company (after the merge OA with Aegean Airlines) will be even better (and still inexpensive)… Read Full Review

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, one child 8 years old and one baby 8 months old)and had a return flight Athens - Amsterdam. The planes were new, but there is no in flight entertainement at all and nothing for the children to keep them occupied. No baby food was provided and no one from the attendants (who were generally polite) asked if we would need anything for the baby etc. Not a bad experience in general, but it could be much much better… Read Full Review

Flight not by Olympic but Athens Airways and I would avoid them for the time as everything is changing and the aircraft we travelled on was old, tired and fault ridden. The cabin lights continually flashed off and on, seat mountings had either broken or missing plastic covers and worrying bolts stuck out at knee level. Life jackets hung free under the seats and the toilet smelled high right from the start, in flight movie without earphones, announcements, apart from the pilot were pijin… Read Full Review

Unable to use Olympic Airlines "NEW" online web check-in service as it only allowed you to fly from one Greek island to another. What a truly international airline!… Read Full Review

Plane did not show up at all. No explanation was given. No information on how to leave the island to meet up with connecting flights. Told next 7 days booked solid so we could all have another weeks holidays! Everyone missed their connecting flights and it cost us £500 to get to Athens. A one-off? Are you joking? Exactly the same thing on the same route with Olympic Airlines happened to us last year. Be warned!!… Read Full Review

Having maritime business interests in RHO, I fly to the islands often, and with Aegean whenever possible.
The Greek people are a warm and friendly lot, but they surely deserve much better than this for the national flag carrier… Read Full Review

Booked flights for Greece for my honeymoon 3 months in advance on Expedia. 3 weeks prior to departure, Olympic Airlines Athens Mykonos leg changed without notice, contacted Expedia who contacted Olympic, was on hold for two hours waiting for a resolution from Olympic. Optional flights did not fit my hotel and sightseeing itineraries. Point being I was charged for a flight for a specific day and paid the bill, done deal. I feel that I should have been placed on any Olympic flight for that… Read Full Review
