Business-class and preferred economy seats also appear to be getting an upgrade in the form of adjustable headrests, which aren’t found on Aegean’s current generation aircraft, and coat hooks.

Like most intra-European airlines, Aegean won’t offer seatback in-flight entertainment, instead offering device holders, USB charging ports, and a streaming service for entertainment.

Standard economy class seats will not see adjustable headrests but will receive USB charging ports, device holders, and coat hooks.

Most medium-range flights will also continue to see complimentary hot meals served in all cabins, with the airline aiming to offer passengers a typical Greek gastronomic experience.
