1 hostess was crying, the 2nd was on her knees praying
The departure flight from Paris to Rhodes was delayed by 5 hours.
On the return flight, there was a 12-hour delay with the transfer.
15 minutes after takeoff, they announced that there was a technical problem. The landing gear couldn't retract and we had to have a layover in Athens. Considering the weather, a big thunderstorm, there were too many risks for landing and we had to return to Rhodes.
The flight attendants were incompetent, they provided no information that might reassure the passengers: 1 flight attendant was crying and the 2nd was on her knees praying. Horrible. They didn't serve a single drink to the passengers.
At the end of 3 hours we finally landed in Rhodes.
The company tried to compensate to letting us leave on the same plane. That was inconceivable after the trauma we went through.
There was no legroom and the seat was in bad shape with a rod poking into your back. There was only 1 person at the baggage check-in, which made for a long wait.
The moving walkway at the airport didn't work.
Astra is an airline to avoid, and which is also in judicial liquidation. It should be put on the blacklist.
