Aegean Airlines, Business Class, Star Alliance

Aegean business class – is it that much better than their economy?

Aegean sets rather high standards for economy class service in Europe, and after experiencing what they had to offer, I got curious about their business class. Aegean offers a business class bidding program where you can name your price and if nobody bids higher, you will get an upgrade for the price you named. I went with the lowest allowed bid of 70€ and got my upgrade. 😁

Aegean Airlines, Economy Class, Star Alliance

Aegean economy class – a pleasant surprise

I don’t usually fly non-Oneworld airlines because of my Finnair Plus status, but this time Finnair didn’t fly to Athens at all, so the only option was to fly a connecting flight with Aegean airlines. I didn’t know what to expect from an airline that doesn’t even have any long haul flights. The only thing I knew about it was that it was part of Star Alliance and, apparently, the easiest way to reach a Star Alliance gold level.
