Would be nice to have an outlet to charge my phone, but other than that I loved the flight experience.

Baggage not on time and no jetway to the airport

Our flight to Athens was great. Our flight from Athens to Larnaca was not good. We had asked about upgrading and were told there was no upgrade available. There were three empty seats on the flight in business. The plane was filled with German touriysinging at the top of their lungs, drinking alcohol they brought onboard, standing in the aisles, blocking the bathrooms etc. It was a very unpleasant flight to say the least.
