My son and I made arrangement to fly with this airline from Santorini to Athens on October 18. Since we only had 2 remaining nights of our trip in Athens the intention was to fly out in the morning so we can have almost an intact day. The scheduled flight supposedly was at 11:15 arriving in Athens by 11:50. This...

Flight delayed for 2 hours past midnight, with lack of updates and compensation. Family got sick. This happened in October, which is way after the peak season...this shows a huge problem and lack of quality.

Our trip from Malta was delayed due to the Malta airshow, so not Olympic Air's fault really! They served us drinks and a snack whilst waiting and notified us of the progress. Many were catching connecting flights like us, so most of us were late. It was a small plane with propellers, so I was quite amazed as I was...

The check-in experience was really bad. Nobody knew where to go no signs or directions. Even after check in the boarding experience was more confusion. People were friendly and trying to be helpful but the poor organization was defeating their good intentions. The flight was on time.

I flew Olympic from Athens to Kos over the summer and it was great. Staff was lovely and attentive and they even gave you a cookie when you got on. Short flight with no inflight entertainment but that was just fine. Great flight and would fly again!
