Awful Aegean experience (Heathrow to Athens, 22nd December 2013): Hand-luggage with just two laptops (one of them half size) is overweight for Aegean airlines. Just one hand-luggage bought especially for cabin use and used in others budget airlines with no problem. They made me to empty it twice! For a ticket bought 9 months ago at a price of £420 for a flight equivalent to 3:40 hours!!! The flight was delayed an hour. I manage to get my connection to Mytilini, which was also with the same airline. Aegean has monopolised the local aviation. The time scheduling is such that it doesn't work to take another airline to Athens and then get aegean for the local trip.
I have flown with aegean both domestically within greece, and to other european destinations from Athens. The flight attendants are always most friendly, beautiful and helpful, the flights punctual, you always get a good and filling meal on board whatever the time, and their prices are also very good. I would recommend anyone traveling to and from Greece to check them out!
