Hi, long shot but do you have any flight numbers or info about this flight?? I was onthis flight & want to complain, but dont have ref numbers or anything.. Many thanks Hayley & Dan : Where do I start??? Arriving at Birmingham Airport on friday 15th July for our 1 week holiday in Corfu, we where met with the fact that our flight was possibly an hour to an hour and half delayed. This turned out to be a 3 hour delay. Instead of flying out at 22.35 we finally left @ 01.35. We boarded the plane and the staff where rude & unhelpful. The seats where broken and rocked backwards and forwards, there where no trays in the seats and sharp metal pieces left sticking out. Some of the seats had even been taped together! My mum said she would look out for delays on our return journey. Sitting at the hotel awaiting our coach transfer back to the airport on friday 23rd July I recieved a call fr om my mum advising the plane that was due to take us back fr om Corfu hadnt even landed @ birmingham airport and wasnt due in there until 01.30. After working out time differences we knew fr om there that the flight was going to be delayed by 3 hours +. Our coach arrived 40 minutes late & upon speaking to the Olympic rep, he said he knew nothing about delays. We arrived at Corfu airport and hour and half later, to be informed by the same rep (who apparently knew nothing) that our flight was delayed by 4 hours!!!! Not impressed!! We asked why the delay was so long and if they would provide us with food vouchers etc and the only reposnse anyone got was "Its nothing to do with Olympic, you'll have to check with skywings!!!" how are u meant to do this when the ppl dont even speak english?? We checked in our bags around 02.30 ( 2 hours before we where due to fly) and at 08.15 we wihere still sitting around the airport. We finally boarded the so called airplane at 08.40 again, staff fairly rude and knew nothing, dirty, no trays on seats, sharp peices sticking out, but been sooooo tired after been up 24 hours all I wanted to do was sleep. The Captain then come over the tannoy to announce that we wh ere having to fly from corfu to milan to refuel?? Apparently beacuse it was so hot in greece they couldnt fill the plane to full capacity?? What happens to flights that are taking off in the middle of the day in that case?? The words * & Sh*t spring to mind. We landed in Milan for a so called half an hour stop to refuel and we wh ere there for 2 hours!!! I could hear something mechanical going on, definatly not refuling!! We got offered 1 complimentary drink on the plane the whole way home, anything else we had to pay for. Im sorry but 1 small cup of pepsi doesnt cover the delays and treatment recieved from this company. I have never expirienced turbulance like I have on these flights, It felt like the plane was struggling to cope (which after reading the reviews on engineer faliure, now sends shivers through my spine!) The landings wh ere hoffic in both milan and birmingham, the pilot slammed the plane down and slammed the air flaps on that hard I had to brace myself on the chair in front! It was scary!! We finally landed back in Birmingham @ 12.00 lunch time, 6 & a half hours after we should of been back. To add insult to injury the steward said he hoped to see everyone again soon, you can imagine the response he got!! A word of warning to anyone who is considering either A) booking a holiday through Olympic who use skywings or B) using skywings as a flight only company.... DONT BOTHER!!! This is a mickey mouse company and it will wreck your holiday. SKYWINGS SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN and big complaints are going to be made to everyone possible to try and make sure this is done!!

Hi, long shot now, but i dont suppose you have the flight number or anything for this flight do you?? Many thanks QOUTE] Kirsty Saunders : After reading a lot of the complaints on this site I have found they are all from the same flight and holiday i was on! 15th July we were heading out to corfu for a holiday,and returning on 23rd july. i dont think i even NEED to file a complaint since everyone can read below to find they are all complaining about the same flight! it also disgusts me to find complaints about other flights, so it isnt like it was just a one off! i heard there were engine failures on the flight out after we had arrived home safely, i am shocked and scared to know that we were flying on such a death trap! how on earth the company still run i have no idea, delaying flights for that amount of time and claiming to 'stop in milan for refuelling due to heat in greece'... what a load of rubbish! stopping in italy for 2 hours to refuel was such an obvious lie! after a fantastic holiday, sky wings did its upmost best to ruin our journey home. never again will i book with sky wings OR olympic, since olympic were useless in helping with the matter. why pick us up from our hotels when knowing the flight was 4 hours delayed? why on EARTH let us fly with a bunch of non-english speaking, ignorant staff who don't care for our safety? with not even a free meal on board (after being kept up for 24 hours with no offer of free breakfast for the inconvenience...) i am VERY VERY DISGUSTED. i am not one to complain to companies as i know how hard it is to run a business and try to please everyone. but this airline is the definition of an utter joke. next time, i will fly with thomson or thomas cook without a doubt. hopefully it wont be long before sky wings is OUT OF THE SKY.

DELAYED 16 HOURS at Birmingham airport!!! We booked our holiday with Olympic Holidays through the Co-op. Got to the airport at 8.00pm, boarded our plane at 10.00pm, it started to take off, but the engine broke down, so they sent us back to the airport, after keeping us on the plane for 2 hours not telling us anything!! We had to wait in the airport till 1.00pm the next day until they fixed the engine. They did not provide a hotel for us to sleep in, there were lots of little children and families who had to spend the night at the airport. We finally boarded the plane at 2.00pm, arriving in Zante at 7pm. We MISSED A WHOLE DAY of our holiday, and they didn't give us a refund or any compensation despite being insured! It really was the worst journey I've ever had, and am never flying with SKYWINGS again!

ITS THE WORST AIRLINE I HAVE EVER BEEN ON , IT SHOULDNT EVEN BE IN THE AIR. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY COMPLAINTS, ALWAYS DELAYS, 7 HOURS FROM BIRMINGHAM, THE PLANE IS STUCK TOGETHER WITH GAFFA TAPE TO HOLD TRAYS UP , STAFF RUDE, ECT . DONT USE THEM AT ANY COST.

Flew to Rhodes last August with Olympic, though we were flying with Monarch but when the tickets came the carrier was Skywings. We were supposed to fly out at 9pm but we were told there would be an hours delay. Finally flew out at 2.15 in the morning on the worst plane I have ever travelled on. Seat covers were ripped, chairs didn't recline and only a handful of seats had pull down tables. We were told that if we wanted a drink they would bring us a tray On the plus side the pilot was English, or rather Scottish and did inspire me w a bit of confidence. Flight was OK , but when we landed 5hrs late we were then left sitting on the coach for the best part of an hour with no explaination. no one even said sorry for the delay etc..nothing. It turned out that the rep from our coach had been searching for a lost passenger from an entirely different coach , nothing to do with her, and thought it was Ok to leave a coachful of * passengers sitting in the heat while she did so. Rude and unprofessional. Once we got to the resort, holiday was wonderful, accommodation was OK and Rhodes is beautiful. Pity that the awful customer service and the badly sub-standard plane mean that we can never book a holiday with Olympic again

Looks like olymipic have got there act together this year and got a decent airline to fly from birmingham
02 April 2012 Guest
THIS AIRLINE STILL HASNT PAID ANY OF THE BRITISH PILOTS AND CABIN CREW AT BHX LAST SUMMER THE CREW HAVE BEEN PHONING UP FOR 6 MONTHS .THEY ARE OWNED BY UKRANIANS WHO BASICALLY GO FROM COUNTRY TO COUNTRY LEAVING THEIR BILLS BEHIND.cROWN PLAZA HOTEL OWED IN EXCESS OF £50000 FOR HOUSING THEIR CREW ALL SUMMER AT BHX.HOPEFULLY THEY WILL NEVER OPERATE FROM THE UK AGAIN .
02 February 2012 Bruno
This airline has recruited pilots and cabin crew for the summer season 2011 and not paid them. 4 months on they still havent received their wages some are owed 14000 euros.The chief pilot for some reason passes himself off as Greek when he is fr om Iraq,they owe £64000 to the hotel they used in BHX in UK ,it is supposed to be a Greek airline but is actually from the Ukraine wh ere safety is of a very low standard .The aircraft was grounded twice by the CAA in UK twice in 2012.
20 December 2011 Guest
SKYWINGS STILL HAVENT PAID ANY UK PILOTS OR CREW BEWARE OF THESE ROGUES THEY WILL ADVERTIZE AGAIN FOR 2012 WHEN THEY WILL BRING THEIR SHOCKING WRECK OF AN AEROPLANE BACK TO THE UK.
14 December 2011 Guest
THE CREW STILL HAVENT BEEN PAID FOR SEPTEMBER NEVER MIND OCTOBER...ITS MID DECEMBER NOW ANYONE THINKING OF WORKING FOR THESE IN 2012 OR ANY OTHER AIRLINE WORKING FOR OLYMPIC HOLIDAYS.
21 November 2011 Guest
No one should fly with Skywings! And no one should work for them!! I hae worked for them for 4 months now and been paid for 2 but it has cost me more than a fortune in accomodation and expenses. I hope that the CAA bans them for life but they are Greek and no one here gives a * or cares less.
18 November 2011 Guest
OMG the crew havent been paid?? no wonder i didnt get my 20p change off one of them on my flight back from Corfu, when she said she will come back with it. Jokes aside a company shouldnt treat there staff like that, its disrepectful, insulting and a perfect example of bad management, i will never fly with them again after the flight i had.
18 November 2011 Guest
YES IT IS TRUE NONE OF THE CREW WERE PAID MY NEIGHBOUR HAS JUST HAD HIS CAR REPOSSESSED AS HE HAS HAD NO WAGES FROM THEM IN MONTHS SO DONT * YOUR TIME TRYING TO GET COMPENSATION THEY ARENT GREEK THEY ARE OWNED BY UKRANIANS. SKYWINGS IS TRULY THE WORST AIRLINE IN 40 YEARS COMING TO AN AIRPORT NEAR YOU !!!!SOON
06 November 2011 Guest
my boyfriend and I worked at airport for summer that airline hadnt paid its fuel bill engineers or anything I really feel for the crew of that airline working on that pile of * then not getting paid.
06 November 2011 Guest
None of the Pilots or crew have been paid or the last 2 months!!! Many of them have had to pay for their own accomodation and transport for 8 weeks. No chance of getting anything back so the CP has no chance either!
05 November 2011 Guest
Madame you were lucky to get anywhere with these cowboys.Skywings stayed all summer at the hotel I worked AT bhx AIRPORT and left owing £40000 !I hear that none of the crew or pilots have been paid in months.CROOKS!!!

I am flying with Skywings to Larnaca this Sat!! through Olympic. Must remember to take plents of sterling for the bar at Birmingham airport!!!!!
27 September 2011 Guest
aye right Pall!!! Pay another £300 onto your holiday and have a free minature! Coke is extra!! Crew were fine on this flight so don't kick them!! Enjoy your next Holiday with tramp airways! At least you got home this time!!
27 September 2011 Guest
this airline is an absolute joke!! 15 hour delay from Larnaca to Birmingham, Olympic give you no information at all and had to find out for myself from Birmingham Airport website! having just read below the reason for the delay is a disgrace. the actual plane was awful,tatty and trays being held up with gaffer tape. the staff werent exactly friendly either, no inflight entertainment, lesson learned though i will never book through Olympic again and make sure i ask what airline i will be flying with in future.
27 September 2011 Guest
I have seen this mess before.Should have flown from Cardiff 3 hours later we were bussed to Bristol on the return we flew to Birmingham and then in a rickety old mini bus taken to Cardiff.We booked this holiday with Kosmar within weeks they went bust as did Grecian before them.My advice is stay clear of Olympic holidays cheap is not always good.Olympic are quite happy to sit back doing and saying nothing while skywings take all the flak.

Quite staggered what this airline has got up to in the last two days at BHX. The A320 operated in late from JSI/SKG last night and they took the opportunity to cancel the outbound Corfu (it might have had a low load or empty) with the inbound operating to Gatwick in the early hours (airline not known) and the passengers were coached to BHX. Was the A320 tech - oh no it departed in the early hours on the delayed Friday morning Viking Hellas service to Heraklion and came back over 24 hours late this morning to operate the usual Saturday BHX-LCA (although a couple of hours late). However rather than returning to BHX the aircraft did the delayed Friday Viking Hellas service LCA-BFS-LCA and should be sitting on the BFS tarmac now as I type, 24 hours late. Obviously decided to make a few quid subbing for Viking or some might say doing a favour for Olympic Holidays - whatever quite a carry on. LCA-BHX due 20.00 tonight is now 10am tomorrow! They even had a spare aircraft in BHX on Friday (MD83) but that went to Manchester to operate a delayed Small Planet flight to Corfu and again the return rather than go to its intended destination came back into BHX in the earlier hours and I assume the passengers were coached. The MD83 sat in BHX all day today but has operated tonight's roads less than an hour late. Pete Taken from Pprune forum If I were a passenger that was delayed from LCA to BHX I would be fuming after reading this A disgrace I have never flown with them or been on holiday with Olympic but find all their antics quite a disgrace

You are wrong and didn't get off lightly This is what happened Your flight arrived in Larnaca ON TIME However a fly Hellas flight to Belfast was delayed because of the grounding of the fly Hellas airline due to unpaid bills Here is the scandalous bit The sky wings plane (your plane) departed Larnaca with the Belfast passengers So they had covered the flight for Fly Hellas and left their own passengers due to go to Birmingham stranded They would have made extra cash for helping out on the Belfast flight You then had to wait for the plane to get to Belfast and return to Larnaca This imo is outrageous However around that time they cancelled a Corfu flight and the return fr om Corfu was diverted into Gatwick wh ere passengers were bussed to Birminham The reason you ask? Well it did a delayed flight from there for someone else So sorry to tell you this but you didn't get off lightly as Sky Wings A320 only flies out of Birminham and you should have been flown home as scheduled but for some crazy reason someone elses delayed passengers were put before you
