Food tastiness was not good. The second meal had a bad a pizza or kiech like thing but was very bad smell that we couldn't eat.

Swiss, knowing the disfunction of the Brussels airport, should have contacted passengers connecting to their flight, and escorted them through an accelerated process, to assist in making the flight.

Cons: "Nada, I slept through this leg and the staff let me be."
Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on plane on ground for 4 hours then missed connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and accommodating. Chocolate always appreciated!"
Cons: "The passenger in front of me slammed into my knees. I am very tall. She was not but she sure got her seat back as far as possible in spite of having he bulkhead sear, so I had to be careful of my position the rest of the flight"
Cons: "The plane waited 40 minutes for delayed connecting flights to arrive. It's great for some passengers because they don't miss the transatlantic flight, but it causes others to miss their connections on the other end. It added to very stressful deplaning."

Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated, the food was only passable. The chocolate was nice"
Pros: "Seats super comfy"

Cons: "A slight delay"
Cons: "I am still in Budapest and was not able to fly back on my Hungarian passport."
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."

Pros: "-"

Thank you, Eva Baud"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The tram ride to the plane"
Pros: "smooth flight, comfy seats"
Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class.

Liked everything accept the food which should be upgraded to a higher standard for an international flight

_

food miserable seats uncomfortable no entertainment

Aegean service is far superior than BA in all aspects when it comes to travelling between London-Greece

Travelling with a baby is always challenging, it was further challenging when your upfront reserved seats were changed without you being given any notice and you are a Gold Star Alliance customer.

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The kosher food"
Cons: "EXCELENT SERVICE BOTH ; COUNTER & IN AIR:: GREAT FOOD ; LOVED THIS AIRLINE"
Cons: "Check-in in Munich took way too long. The lines were confusing and the agent opened another lane and took about 30 people who were behind us in line ahead of us."
Cons: "The food maybe"
Pros: "Ground crew and cabin crew were very helpful and efficient"
Cons: "The staff at the airport did not know how to validate my travel documents which were emergency documents issued as the originals were stolen in Greece. Apparently a common issue according to the police so I would think the airline would have standard procedures in place for these circumstance."
Cons: "Long delays, sat on the runway for 3 hours and they kept telling us it would just be a 10 minutes longer"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat and to close to seat in front. Could barely put tray table down!"
Pros: "Was on time and staff is always great"
Pros: "Accuracy in times"
Pros: "I purchased the go lite fare because I wanted to reserve the exit row and this was the least expensive option. Good food and nice crew"
Cons: "Entertainment was music only no movies to download. Would have given more stars to Aegean"
Pros: "Great service, crew and good food"
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "Free food! Very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Chaos with boarding - should be by rows"
Cons: "I wish the announcements made in English were easier to understand"
Pros: "The assistance from om HE check inn clerk."
Cons: "The confusion of where to drop your bags- whether we had to pay extra and where to pay it!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the staff friendly and did realize we would be served a full meal for a two hour flight from Athens to London; unexpected and appreciated."
Cons: "We didn’t board the plane at the times listed, it was running behind."
Cons: "Our first flight out of Mykonos was delayed by a little so we had to run to our connection in Athens and my bag didn’t make it onto the plane. So now I’m in London, missing a dinner because I don’t have dress acceptable clothes, can’t go out and buy any because it’s too late on a Sunday. I am also going to miss my plans which were the only reason we came to London. as I do not have acceptable clothing to go out in tonight. So it was a waste of paying the flight to London, and our Airbnb in London."
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent. Didn’t try the food because I was very sleepy. The business class cabin was pretty much economy seats with the middle blocked out. But I managed to sleep the entire flight. I have flown Aegean/Olympic on almost all their aircraft and I always look forward to my flight."
Cons: "Being everything economy seats they’re a bit stiff. I knew the flight was delayed but the airport monitors in Budapest didn’t update to indicate it was boarding."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "space when seating"
Pros: "The staff especially the cabin crew were very professional and Courteous. The food was fantastic and served well."
Cons: "Being called to wait to board in a Que when we did not need to like Ryan Air"
Pros: "Good service! On time!"
Cons: "not nearly enough room, despite having bought extra legroom seats. Crowded.."
Cons: "Gâte operator were very slow I was going to loose my connection to Paris as it took me more than 1hour to make the check in"
Pros: "Clean plane, good snacks and coffee, etc., smooth flight."
Cons: "Check in at Budapest was chaotic and disorganized; when we arrived at the check in desk after waiting twenty minutes we were told we couldn't check in there, but had to check in at a kiosk and return."
Pros: "The flight left Budapest on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Unbeknownst to me, I needed a boarding pass prior to checking my luggage and there was a 35 Euro fee for one piece of luggage. I did not appreciate either one of these unexpected occurrences and extra fee."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment was good! Plane wasn’t full so made a more comfortable trip."
Cons: "Had to wait over an hour before take off for repair. But happy they were conscientious about fixes."
Cons: "They locked the bathrooms whenever the staff were passing around drinks, food, or collecting garbage. They claimed it was due to "safety" but every staff was easily walking around passing around drinks. There was no turbulence. Even when multiple people tried to get up to go to the restroom, they sent them away. Finally, when they unlocked the bathrooms after a good 30 mins, there were HUGE lines. They did this multiple times. It doesn't make sense to lock the bathrooms that long. People need to use the restroom and then they create larger lines which is more dangerous because even more people are standing up at the same time. Doesn't make sense. Will probably not use this airline again if this occurs again."
Pros: "I enjoyed it, having a window seat in front of the plane. Time (also) flyes fast when you have a good time looking forward to your holiday in 'paradise' on Crete Island. The vieos from Crete were excellent."
Cons: "There was a 20- minute- delay due to arriving a bit later than expected from Athens. I never get bored at an airport, though."
Pros: "Once we landed in Athens, knowing that our next flight would be taking off in 5 minutes, we thought ther was no way that we'd make it. Instead, they had someone waiting for us when we got off of the flight and someone to run all 11 of us through the airport to the plane. Aegean held the flight because they knew 11 people from the Santorini flight were coming."
Cons: "Once on the plane, we ended up sitting there for another 30 minutes, even though it was already 20 minutes late waiting for us. When I asked the stewardess whether that meant that our bags were going to make the flight she said she'd have to check. She never came back. I then asked a second girl and she said that she'd have to check and she never came back. I finally asked again before landing and she supposedly went and asked someone and came back and said yes they made it. Got to baggage claim - no bags. We had another flight to catch back to the states, so we didn't have time to figure out the situation. We spent the next three days frantically calling Aegean, to no avail. Their customer service either wouldn't answer or would tell us to call London Heathrow lost and found, who wouldn't answer. Eventually, Delta found our bags and had to work with Lufthansa and their own boots on the ground at LHR to find the bags and get them back to us."
Cons: "Boarding chaos causing a delay to depart. No tvs. Kids all over the plane crying. Kicking seats."
Pros: "Boarding was expedited using two entries."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour."
Pros: "Onboard food is always excellent. Great legroom (row 5 on a321) from Athens to London (LHR). Seats are comfortable enough and servers are always pleasant."
Pros: "Getting food provided. After almost missing the flight it was a real bonus to find this is the only flight in years that I've taken which provided a meal. In the old days I might have complained about the quality of airline food. Now I'm just very grateful to get it! - and the quality was not bed either!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Gate staff are able to deal with things"
Cons: "Check-in can't process baggage charges, so they send you off to an office across the airport, just to find that the payment processing office is closed for a couple hours in the late afternoon. Why don't you just set the baggage check in people up to process a credit card transaction?"
Cons: "No entertainment on a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Staff was great, fast easy check in, food was nice and everything was on time."
Pros: "Before the first fly we request to be on the front and we ger the last row!!! The plan was so small that i cant get inside and i'm 1.90 m so i need to put my legs out and all the time the girls staff kick my legs and wake me up Before i get inside the plan they took my trol (small sutcate) becuse "it's to much big" (this is the regular size!!!! and when i told the girls they told me that we dont dissc lus about it!!!! Al the flight their wasnt ballans and it was terrible i felt so bad and when all the people get a paper to feel and i was sleep so no one told me that i need to do this Terrible flight of my life!!!!"
Pros: "Very polite and attentive service. Took off and arrived on time, Plane seems new and clean."
Cons: "The common TV screens went on forcing everyone to watch this loud boring segment. If you're not going to offer individual screens, simply keep it quiet. It was frustrating to have to listen to that. Also, the food was inedible. The yogurt was fine (packaged), but the spanakopita style baked good was horrible. The filling smelled and the dough was rubbery. Stick to easy basics like eggs. This is coming from someone who eats EVERYTHING"
Pros: "Buena atención del staf"
Cons: "Facilidad de check in .y buena atención durante el vuelo"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Cons: "I was not able to use this reservation and when I contacted Aegean, they would not refund any portion of the ticket nor give me credit. Therefore, I cannot recommend the airline nor will I ever fly them."
Pros: "Did not feel like a budget airline. Great service."
Pros: "Very friendly. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant mannered, and efficient. They had only 30 minutes and they gave us a cookie, some candy, collected the trash, all very efficiently and kindly."

Check in agent in Budapest was terribly rude and sent us off to the side to "go call united" because "there was something wrong with our ticket." He wouldn't explain what was wrong so we didn't know what to tell United. After standing in a corner for more than 30 mins, another agent offered to help us. It turns out the only problem was that we hadn't completed our check in online, (which we couldn't because the app would not let us input the correct expiration date for our passports) ...and he just didn't want to have to put our information in himself. We could have missed our flight because of his laziness!!! He was also the only person in the whole airport NOT wearing a mask.

Pros: "Easy boarding and nice crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more than an hour."
Cons: "Lufthansa in Frankfurt is a nightmare. Gates are very far apart and Lufthansa scheduled layovers are very short. We were running close to 2 km from one end of the airport to other with little kids barely making our flights. Boarding was on tarmac even for 747, once in rain once in 40C degrees."
Pros: "Very clean cabin, crew efficient and friendly"
Cons: "The sweet pastry is horrible, please bling back the cheese sandwich/ or similar."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"
Pros: "The flight was 1.5 hours late that almost caused us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. The service and plane was just OK."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was just fair. The plane was small and bathrooms options limited"
Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "I arranged assistance but nobody showed up."
Cons: "Requested assistance in Budapest for my 84 yr old mother that walks with a cane for the Frankfurt airport and Baltimore. No one showed up. Lots of walking at Frankfurt and having to board out on runway up all the steps was not easy."
Cons: "You lost my luggage !!"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food was pretty good,"
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude to me"
Pros: "Exellent and smooth flight, thank you."
Pros: "Schedule was followed."
Cons: "At Budapest Airport only one check-in desk, #1 was shown on the big board for this flight and the airline Lufthansa was only shown above the check-in desk #1, which was dedicated for First/Business and M&M Gold status travellers only. Many economy class passengers queued there and at the end they were all redirected to check-in desk #3, as that was designated for Economy class passengers (however not any Lufthansa sign was shown above. When I mentioned to the ground crew (Celebi) that they should improve signs and not mishandle travellers, the person in charge (Nikolett Magyar) said to me arrogantly that they are right, and nothing they would do to improve the signs and passengers' information. This is far what I expect from LH representative, even if subcontracted and not an employee. That behaviour made my journey sour as travelling - especially with not a budget airline - is not just getting from A to B, but an experience which is worth to remember for good reasons, but not certainly for bad ones."
Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "Not enough space between the seats and the seats are very tough. So hard you can’t get comfortable"
Pros: "Food, drinks, crew hel;pful"
Cons: "Boarding was not orderly, stupid system of delayed displaying of gate assignment"
Pros: "Crew was super nice, service great and plane comfort appropriate for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Overhead compartments very narrow and could not fit small carryons."
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about my flight"
Pros: "Agents in the airport helped us avoid long passport lines in order to board connecting flight by putting us forward to front of lines. Otherwise we would have missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Nothng"
Pros: "Staff were so friendly! The plane was clean and comfortable."
Cons: "no seat tilt"
Cons: "Gate change made with no PA announcement; we’ll, if you must, ok. But beginning boarding without telling anyone at all, making no announcements, not even in Hungarian, seems weird."
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Too many stairs, far away from the connection flight."
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by well-over an hour, having me arrive an hour late for my connecting flight home. There were no efforts to assist me in locating my connecting flight, to set up any accommodations while at the connecting flight's airport for the additional 4 hours of waiting time, no apologies for making me late for wedding rehearsals (I'm the officiant!). I had to actively seek out the ticket counter for another airline, through which my connecting flight was re-routed."
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "They switched me to a different flight saying I won't make my connection due to high traffic at the BUD airport and they never told me that instead of arriving to JFK, they are flying to Newark airport. Having not known this at all, I had no ride home, super inconvenienced and I was 2 hours plus away from my home in Jersey. Horrible experience"

Cons: "First leg of our flight was delayed, second flight departed before we landed."

Pros: "...and not for the first time.. And won't be the last.."
Cons: "Wifi onboard wasn't working.."

Friendly staff, very nice airplane.

Very poor snack and drink option

Food and service were excellent. Some of the crew were wonderful.

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

Facilities for short connections.

Facilities for short connections.

Both airports totally understaffed. Awful experience.

Very cramped flight, overhead bins were all completely filled, and passengers had to fly with bags by their feet which was not very comfortable for me personally.

Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."

Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Good

Cons: "I paid for a certain seat before the flight, and at the check-in my seat was changed to a back row. Because of that by the time I was offered the food, there was no choice, only one food (beef) was available. I was unhappy with that!!!!! The crew tried to solve all the issues on the plane. They were excellent!!!"

Cons: "Leg space in the seat is very tight."
Pros: "Plane was half empty so I had plenty of space"
Cons: "My entertainment screeen froze in first 40 min of flight, the food portions were tiny"
Pros: "The only good thing was that it got me from Point A to Point B and my bag wasn't lost or damaged."
Cons: "The seats are so incredibly small for a long haul flight. Two people must compete for shoulder space, as there simply isn't enough room for both to sit back completely. Constant elbow issues and a feeling of being locked into a small space. I've never been so happy to exit from a flight. Note that on the JFK-BUD-JFK route, LOT subcontracts to a low-cost Portuguese airline, so this plane isn't configured for a trans-Atlantic flight, at least not for a minimal level of comfort. Never again. Pay more for a decent seat on another carrier! And take a large bottle of water, as they're not at all generous with the water, soda, and juice. My seatmate and I were parched and couldn't wait to clear customs so as to buy a bottle of water."
Pros: "Crew was really helpful and friendly. They took care of us completely. Boarding, take off, landing, everything on time."
Cons: "Airplane didn't provide flight specifics. (Speed, altitude, outside temperature). Just basic info. Seats in this particular plane are really narrow. Everytime someone passing hit my shoulder. This didn't happen in other planes."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats, very friendly and polite crew"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in both ways. Very crowded, not comfortable to sit. Just 11 movie selection with a terrible sound."
Pros: "The end"
Cons: "I paid for an exit row and got a regular seat without refund. I will have to fight for that apparently. The plane was very old, dirty, in bad repair. The seat did not decline, the screen of the monitor was cracked, the bathrooms were disaster zones, there was literary nothing on the entertainment program. The passengers were nice though!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized despite the full flight. In fact check-in and security were pleasantly quick in Budapest. The flight time was almost an hour shorter than scheduled which was a pleasant surprise - it was great to have at least four of the cabin crew who spoke Hungarian. As the people in front of us didn't recline their seats, we had decent legroom. Food was good, cabin crew were attentive."
Cons: "Nothing - though arrival in Chicago was not pleasant - huge lines at immigration and customs - took an hour and half from getting off the plane to getting out of the customs hall."
Pros: "Flight crew was good and on-time."
Cons: "Check-in at Budapest was horrible! Two girls working there were unprofessional, unhelpful, stood there talking and joking while my family waited. I had to sit separate from my wife and small children with special needs!!!! Fire these people!!!"
Pros: "Brand new plane, very smart albeit plasticy and clunky. Professional staff. Very helpful when I had a specific personal request at the booking office. Flight crew were not constantly trying to force us to buy things or making announcements every 5mins like some budget airlines I could name. Flight was 30mins early so no problems there."
Cons: "Warsaw Airport is terrible. Not enough seats in the departure longes. Not enough choice for shops. Not enough toilets for the volume of passengers."
Pros: "Courteous, knowledgeable and professional crew. Fast boarding. Direct flight."
Cons: "No wifi. Little room if person sitting in front leans back."
Pros: "Food was great and aircraft was new Fast track lane in WAW was really fast - saved a lot of time"
Cons: "No online checkin offered No lounge offered, even for a fee Luggage was not tagged priority No priority boarding offered Service quality onboard was a bit variable"
Pros: "Great food and nice airplane"
Cons: "The crew could not control a rowdy crowd on the plane, we had over eight hours of chaos"
Pros: "The multilingual, very professional crew is one of the best we've traveled with. All of them are willing to help, accommodate, which was extremely important for us due to my husband's medical issues. Much obliged."
Pros: "There is nothing what I can say I liked They were late at the first flight and I was almost to loose the next connection. The crew in the airport in Warsaw were very slow and unprofessional When I got back to chicago they had a delay 30 min as well. I had a very bad experience overall with Lot company I will never fly again with them"
Cons: "I hope I get back my luggage back in where I have so many things"
Pros: "The entire cabin crew was excellent. Service fabulous. Requested vegetarian meal. It was supurb. Very unusual for flight from. Eastern European countries They exceeded my expectations . Thank you"
Cons: "Boarding from. EWR WAS lousy. Flight going to Warsaw was delayed to start with . They did not announced . Only shown on screen. They have to definitely announce to the passengers THEY WILL BOARD AS PER GROUP NO. . NEED NOT MAKE A BIG LINE JUST RELAX ON THE CHAIR . PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF STANDING in the line for a long time May be they need to have more group Nos to easy facilitate boarding . This is only a suggestion. If they want to improve customer experience and travel again with them"
Pros: "LOT short flights are well run, organized, cabin crew are approachable and friendly. Announcements from the flight crew are informative and reassuring. Check in and boarding in Budapest was smooth and easy."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "The flight was good. Budapest is an easy enough airport to deal with though why LOT only has one desk available at check in for economy passengers is questionable. The second desk for important passengers did become available when there was no one in line there, but still. Flight crew, staff were all helpful and approachable. Captain gave passengers relevant information and cabin crew did the same. The Flight was problem free no turbulence no delays just well run and well organized."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "Overall the flight was pleasant - the Bombardier is a great plane - there was enough leg room and space. I had a lovely view of the Tatra mountains. Captain made a couple of announcements and kept us informed of flight time, progress and so on. No complaints at all."
Pros: "They was in time what I was like"
Cons: "The other passengers didn’t stay at the seat they change the seats, and the seats was dirty"
Cons: "Personal entertainment is buggy"
Cons: "This plane is never on time. Count at least 45 min delay. I avoid this airline. Take their tickets only if they are significantly cheaper than the competitors."
Cons: "the cabin was so hot!"
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "stron delay (more then 2 houres)"
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "LOT planes were late to both directions to the place and 2 weeks later from the place. When we flew with my little daughter - toddler to the destination the plane was late and as a result we were late to another plane, so they sent us to the same destination country but to the different place and then I had to find out were to go further while our luggage was lost (found in 3 days). When we flew back, the plane was late once again and I was told that we might will be left until next day morning, so lots of nervous and stress. The food provided was very poor as well - basically just small chocolate bar and water, tea or coffee, so if you are hungry it would not really help you."
Pros: "Nice flight crew, decent food available for purchase."
Cons: "I purchased my ticket through Kayak on priceline.com In the description of the fair it was specifically stated that I'm allowed 1 checked in bag. The airline did not send me the standard check in and flight information email, so when out of concer for my flight, I logged in a few hours before to find out that all the good seats were already taken. When I then proceeded to online check in, I was dumbfounded to find out that I do not have any luggage allowance. When I called their English language help line I was connected to a prerecorded message and then promptly connected to a Polish speaking person. Lucky for me I speak some Polish, but if you do not you would have a problem. The person then proceeded to inform me that the flight from Poland to London that I was taking is considered by the Polish airlines as a local flight and for that reason I'm not allotted a free checked in bag. I fly a lot all over the world and this is the first time something like this has ever happened to me. I will now permanently stay away from Lot. They shouldnot be considered a major airline, but a cheap flight air. This way when booking a flight you would know to not expect much from them."
Pros: "Lot of leg room in the emergency exit row. Though they don't let you have bags there."
Cons: "No entertainment! Though it was only a two hour flight."
Cons: "We were bused to the small older plane and it was raining steadily."
Pros: "Calm flight, good service, not many people"
Cons: "It was a bit dark and the seats were uncomfortable, the Windows were dirty."
Cons: "My first flight from budapest to warsaw was delayed 4 hours and no gate was scheduled. No one was at any desk to help answer questions about connecting flights. When we finally got on the plane and landed, I had to sprint through the warsaw airport in order to make my next flight. ."
