Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands, has two international airports. If you’re staying towards the west of the island, the Chania International Airport "Daskalogiannis" (CHQ) is your closest, located about 20min outside of Chania. A little more central is the Heraklion "Nikos Kazantzakis" International Airport (HER).
One of the most popular places to stay from which to explore the Greek Islands is Santorini, with its central location and picturesque towns. You could fly into Santorini Airport (JTR) and stay in Thera, located about 20min from a large ferry wharf where you can catch ferries to many of the nearby islands. Another good option is Mykonos, served by the Mykonos International Airport (JMK).
If you are staying in one of the major centres on the mainland, you will find very useable public transport to transfer you to the city. Athens and Thessaloniki even have a subway system. However, as you head out to the smaller islands, buses can become more irregular. Taxis are readily available at the airports, and a great way to navigate the busy roads.
If you’re visiting the UNESCO heritage site Meteora, you will find it’s very easy to access from both Athens and Thessaloniki. Buses and trains regularly run from the cities. The train from Athens is considered incredibly scenic and takes about 4h. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, you will find accommodation in Kalabaka or in nearby Trikala. As one of the most popular sites in the country, it is recommended to book your visit and accommodation before your trip.

Pros: "Everything was excellent, and we even arrived 30 minutes earlier than scheduled..... super."
Cons: "no problems"
Pros: "Punctual flight with friendly crew."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Pros: "crew very helpful with seating service on board also good"
Cons: "head phones for entertainment very uncomfortable Food not to my taste"
Pros: "The crew and the little things like blanket, pillow, hot towels etc that is just standard. The food was great except the bread rolls Entertainment system was fantastic"

Pros: "Premium economy"
Pros: "I'm starting to sound like a fan boy but Singapore airlines masks this look easy. Comfortable seat great entertainment, edible food and wonderful in for service team. What's not to like"
Cons: "Had to drive to Huston. Can we get rid of BA and American and just have Singapore handle the flights at DFW?"
Pros: "crews were helpful"
Cons: "nobody suggested me about $20 discount coupon card . I could have enjoyed my meal free while waiting in teansit."
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm"
Pros: "Prem econ very good. Crew very friendly."

Pros: "Food & condition"
Cons: "Crew were unfriendly and rude"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled during peak season with little notice time Lack of service Lack of compensation"
Pros: "Check in and boarding were flawless. The flight left about one hour late. The seats in coach are getting smaller and smaller. I got an aisle seat to have a little extra room (I'm 6'1") only to get hit big time by the food cart (they did apologize). The food was plentiful, but mediocre at best. The flight attendants were working hard, but we're abrupt and tired. Overall, I have three stars, when in the past, flying SA was always a five star experience. It got me back home though. :)"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Very small seats. For full flights they should use the double deck aircrafts. They are much more comfortable. I paid an expensive fair for an old plane which was unfair"
Cons: "Sydney to Singapore flight was a very old flight, uncomfortable seating and very poor quality entertainment system"
Pros: "I have always enjoyed flying on Singapore Airlines. There were no delays on my connecting flight coming out of Tokyo to Los Angeles. The huge plane was like flying in a small "transportable town.""

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"
Pros: "Crew and staff were great and accommodating."
"Everything was satisfactory. I had a pleasant trip and the airline staff was very accommodating."
Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."
Pros: "The seat that I picked."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom"
Pros: "Amazing aircraft! Amazing crew!"
Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Pros: "Crew was great. TV Entertainment system was excellent."
Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."

Pros: "The other two seats in my row were not occupied"
Cons: "The excessive and second security checking at Doha"
Cons: "Transfer was messy, no screens or indications on sight when landed in Doha to transfer with a very short time. Boarding in Doha was extremely slow, some passengers had issues with their travel documents and instead of handling those issues on the side, they kept everyone waiting for over 15 minutes"
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"

Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. Ihad to"
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."
Cons: "this time food was not that good which when traveled before."
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"
Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"
Pros: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Cons: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Pros: "It was a direct flight with good food and movies to choose from"
Cons: "Small cramped seats in economy"
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding was fast"
Pros: "After hearing our complaint, the Transfer desk staff was friendly and helpful and solved the situation in our favour. We"
Cons: "Once we landed in Doha to board omthe connecting flight, ground staff was waiting right outside the hate to let us know that our flight was overbooked.

Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"

Pros: "Timing of flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy has changed and has become too restrictive. Wieight and size and number of checked baggage is below competitors for transatlantic flights.

Cons: "food limited selection"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"

The seat next to me had a broken tray that was falling apart. Overall very disappointed with the quality of the plane with such expensive flights."
Pros: "The staff - every one of them - was pleasant, helpful & knowledgable. Great combination - makes for a terrific flight! The food was really delicious. All 2 desserts we had were in the category of Spectacular! Stickey toffee pudding was off-the-charts fantastic! Chocolate Mousse was terrific and the lemon pie (?) was awesome. I would love to know the baker or confectioner of your offerings so I could purchase from home! Nice touch . . . offering hot steeped tea poured & ready to drink."
Cons: "Boarding seems so disorganized and is doesn't need to be. There were no clear directions for boarding categories which would have helped n the States because we are so used to following a simple procedure. More than that is needed in Athens where the V formation usually rules when talking about lines. Once on board, we were not served anything until @ 90 minutes after takeoff. If people didi not come on board with a drink - that is a long period of time to wait!"
Cons: "Electronic entertainment is poor and the whole experience rather depressing no matter how hard the crew tries"

Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit.

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and attentive. Best in flight service I have received in a long time."
Cons: "The plane doesn't have usb ports to charge the phones, and as there are no screens or anything else, make sure you bring your battery pack."
Cons: "Better choice of movies"
Pros: "From Geneva to Athens we use the AEGEAN AIRLINES and the flight was very good over all. We had to use the AEGEAN because we missed the SWISS flight due to United's delays."
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "The boarding by groups could improve the process"
Cons: "Leg room was really bad in economy and the only upgrade option was to business for $10,000 so of course not affordable for the average person."

Cons: "I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more..."
Cons: "We were scheduled for a 55 minute layover in Zurich which was not nearly enough time. Our plane was 10 minutes late in landing but our next flight was delayed 5 minutes. We had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, go through immigration with very long lines, take a tram to our departure terminal and then run to our gate which was at the end of a very long hallway. Luckily they held the plane but it was very stressful and exhausting getting to our plane."

Cons: "I was surprised to be charged for 1 piece of checked baggage. I was never informed I would be required to pay for 1 piece of checked baggage. I would have paid ahead of time, had I known. I tried to check-in online but was denied access to my ticket because Swiss Air thought I might be a robot. I kept following instructions for positive access but after about 10 attempts I quit. Very irritating!"

Cons: "Food: not so good! Entertainment: in the section of the new releases movies was old not new:) And my bag didn't come on the and :("
Pros: "The trip thank God was not a long flight."
Cons: "Crew was not very nice unfortunately."
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars overall if not for two hours of a child kicking me seat and occasionally poking my arm."
Cons: "Sandwiches Delay"
Pros: "Bad inedible food and no leg room, and I am small."
Cons: "An hour late, not Swiss fault but Captain continued to broadcast 5-10 minute delays. Just say it's going to be an hour, then we can all turn our phones back on and go to the lavatory."
Pros: "boarded from rear of plane forwards, which made boarding go more smoothly. Very efficient and fast flight attendants. Food Ok: Vegetarian was one of two standard options. Included a few nice touches like warm crossants."
Cons: "So little elbow room in center aisle that it was quite challenging to eat meals. Not enough lavatories, so they were in continual use, preventing any chance of rest. We were 3 aisles away in darkened cabin, but the flashes of light bright enough to read by and loud CLACKS of door latch when the door opened & closed kept us up the whole flight."
Pros: "Crew were super helpful. Have flown with other airlines, but have to say Qantas crews are very professional and helpful. They go that extra mile."
Pros: "The staff are always so friendly, and even though we had to return to the airport due to a plane fault, the airline handled things very well. Loved free wifi"
Cons: "Qantas’ fleet is a bit sad and aged and needs to be a little bit more modern. I don’t think I’d chose to fly qantas if I had the choice... boarding is weird, almost half the plane has “priority” boarding and they board everyone together so there’s honestly no perk to being a premium airline member"
Cons: "Wifi was horrible. Selection of movies was weak."
Pros: "CREW WAS HELPFUL AND OBLIGING."
Cons: "IT WAS AN OVERNIGHT FLIGHT FROM DARWIN TO MELOURNE. THE 'SNACK' OF 2 PORK BOA BUNS AND JUICE/TEA/COFFEE OR AN APPLE AND SOME CRISPS, WAS POOR AND COULD DO WITH SOME IMPROVEMENT. RATHER UNSATISFACTORY."
Cons: "The flight from Cairns to JFK that I originally purchased was supposed to be 7 hours of travel time less than what I actually ended up with. The airline changed my flights 4 times after originally booking."

Cons: "Nothing, all was well"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Left on time. Uneventful flight (good). Arrived ahead of time"

Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"
Pros: "It is always a good flight with Qantas,great staff are friendly and helpful for me and all passengers.like watching the movies,meals are good quality.You are updated with what is going on as you fly."
Cons: "A twenty minute delay on landing and was raining in Bangkok but that is ok."
Pros: "We strayed to competing airlines the last few trips, but can't best Qantas for friendly service, inclusive and on time departure"
Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece safe and sound, what more can you ask for."

Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "Entertainment - lots of movies"
Pros: "I'm not sure the reason I wasn't able to change my food selection on QANTAS, but the site never allowed me. I bought the flight thru Justfly.com"
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment. Served good food often with nice menu selection. Seats a bit tight as with all airlines. Fruit was fabulous and fresh - there were none left when I requested mine, but the flight attendant said there may be some left from other servers. Within a few minutes, she did bring one which I was thankful as I didn’t care for the other selection."
Cons: "Close seats especially when others recline, but we were lucky on this flight no one did as it wasn’t a full flight so people moved around."
Cons: "We missed our flight due to Justfly and Quantas not informing us about our schedule change. Did not get on our flight"
Pros: "On time, good food, flite staff and attendants were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Outstanding service and a nice mid day snack."
Cons: "Ride a bit bumpy due to rain and cloud cover descending into Brisbane."
Pros: "The service and the meals and snacks- American airlines do not provide any of those things anymore, Qantas did domestically as well as on our international flight."

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Leg room is tight in economy"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable, in flight entertainment was good, food was good"
Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of food included in the fare. I was not expecting two full meals. I also appreciated all the movie choices. Thanks for making a 14 hour flight bearable."
Pros: "I like food and service of crew members"
Cons: "Yes I like it"
Pros: "Loved the leg room, kind attendants, great meals."
Cons: "The technology malfunctioned the entire flight. It was less than ideal."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! Attentive, humorous, efficient and very professional."
Cons: "The plane is well outdated. Cramped seats for a 14 hour flight. Minuscule TV screens. The 747 is a health hazard for flights over 6 hours. Bring on a Dreamliner or an A383 for that flight - PLEASE!!!"

Pros: "Tivi was broken"

Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"
