Review: Aegean A320-200 Business Class Intra-European Flight

Aegean Business Lounge Athens

As an Aegean Miles+Bonus member, you are entitled to 2 upgrade coupons to business class if you have Silver status and 4 upgrade coupons as a Gold status. The coupons are renewed each year as long as you keep your status.

This way I can enjoy status benefits on Star alliance flights and fly business class when I fly Aegean Airlines.

As business passenger, you can make a free seat selection. I chose to take seat 1A.

After receiving a welcome drink and take-off, the curtains are closed to divide business class cabin with the economy cabin. On this particular flight, I was the only passenger.

I received a menu where I could choose my breakfast.

The first flight I chose the spinach omelette.

As a transit passenger, you sometimes have to pass the baggage claim hall in Athens, which is pretty unusual in most airports. The arrival hall was empty because it was only 5:30 in the morning.
I walked to the gates because I wanted to enjoy an hour in the refurbished Aegean Business Lounge. The new lounge looks quite nice and there’s a lot of food selection.

At around 6:30 in the morning, the place becomes very busy though. I saw some spinach-feta cheese pie [spanakopita] so enjoyed this great morning snack at the lounge.
There is a lot of space to sit though so even if it is busy you’ll probably find a spot.

I only had a one-hour layover so I didn’t have much time to sit in the lounge. I boarded and started to feel the tiredness. In business class, you can always ask for a pillow to have some rest.

After departure, I received the breakfast menu, which was basically the same as my previous flight so I chose he other option.One more picture of the view of the alps from my window.

Alternatively, if you fly to a non-Schengen country, you’ll have to go to the A gates. The Aegean lounge is nice too, except that it has fewer meal options and it can be quite crowded as it is a small lounge.

I have added some other photos when I experienced flying Aegean in business class. This gives you an idea what you can expect as lunch or dinner.
