Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Lots of movies."
Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"

Information over the speaker system was shared in German, English, and sometimes French. Individual TV screen was nice. Good smooth flight. Boarding and deboarding were painless, even in economy."

Pros: "Everything. Seemed faster."
Pros: "the crew did the best they could"
Cons: "the seats on the plane were so cramped....and I am not a fat or tall person; 5'7" and 130 lbs..... for a 7 hour flight.... I'll avoid booking on this plane..... it was a United Airlines plane btw.....not Lufthansa."
Pros: "Super easy to book the flight,...easy check-in,...great experience"
Pros: "The choice of video on demand was excellent. Food was good and had variety from other flights."
Cons: "My family originally was given seats in three different spaces rather than together. I had to call up to clarify this as I found it unacceptable for a 7-8 hour flight to put a family in separate seats especially considering my child is 6 years old. Instead of always looking for a way to make money use some common sense. I spent over an hour on the phone trying to get someone to address this issue the night before the flight. They eventually put us together and upgraded us to Economy Plus."

Cons: "Better communication on board. It was difficult to hear and to understand announcements, which were few."
Cons: "On top of what I rated, the flight was delayed by 1 hour in Chicago, enough to miss the flight to Sofia and have to spend the night in Warsaw. It’s been one terrible experience. A lot of things can be better. The ratings are pretty descriptive."
Cons: "I missed connection flight from Warsaw to Belgrade, so they sent me on another flight to Vienna and than to Belgrade. All together almost 20 hours of flying. Layover was 1 hour on flight from Chicago. Entertainment Screen was freezing every 10 min. It was imposable to watch movie"
Pros: "Crew member were nice people and helpful"
Cons: "Information about delay of flight, food and boarding process"
Pros: "yes yes excellent"
Cons: "Employees at airport in Budapest didn’t speak English, also went to restroom and there was no access for handicapped people, I’m on wheelchair. I will never again go that way, very bad experience."
Cons: "Punctuality. My flight was delayed over 1.5 hour."
Pros: "Good organization for connecting flights, since first one departed one hour late"
Cons: "Not put me in middle sit never again"
Cons: "Flight delays, late boarding, better service"
Pros: "The entertainment selection"
Cons: "Seats were brutally uncomfortable. It was unbearably hot the entire flight because the air was not turned on. And there was not the advertised amount of legroom."

Pros: "Very friendly crew , free beer"
Cons: "being 100% on time with take off"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Entertainment system locked up and did not work. I summoned crew but they never responded 3 times"
Pros: "Crew was fine, plain was fine"
Cons: "Departure was late one hour, I missed my flight connection to Bulgaria"
Pros: "The cabin staff was very friendly and attentive. The boarding process was efficient (the long time it took was owed to the large crowd entering the plane in a Boeing 787), the entertainment programme is not overwhelming, but adequate."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost three hours at a most uninspiring airport. The information on the delay came rather late. Although I managed to reach my connecting flight, my luggage did not. (It was sent after, though, with the next machine and reached my late the same night in the hotel.)"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "Flight attendants a little cold but not nasty"
Cons: "Limited leg room and cramped quarters when person in front of you leans back."
Pros: "All stuff members spoke good English."
Cons: "I was in the business class. Food was too salti Cabin stuff were clumsy Plates and glasses fell of their hands on the pasengers Many times dueing the flights. Chairs wrre stuck and a stuff member need to come every time i needed to change position."
Cons: "Flight from Chicago was delayed for two hours. Missed my connection flight to Odessa and still in Warsaw waiting for my flight to Odessa."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane was a little late,which was OK. The bigger problem is the lost luggage."
Pros: "The flight itself was not bad"
Cons: "Customer service was horrible at the airport from staff . They did not let us board , even though we got there on time from Chicago and people were still in line. We waiting 6 hours , and the flight was delayed another 1 hour and a 1/2.. customer service did not accommodate us in our time in Poland . We had to pay additional fees for transportation from airport to hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 8 Hours. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Service is good, flight crew are helpful and attentive, meals are good. Entertainment is good."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed by an hour so boarding became frantic and stressful. We had already left the gate and the plane was taxiing and some people were still not sitting in seats - I suppose that's fellow passengers for you - and they were told by flight attendants to get into their seats. Economy seats are very cramped so it's an uncomfortable and probably not healthy experience for that long. The flight delay meant that there was high stress in Warsaw to make the connecting flight. Why transit passengers need to be subjected to security checks and clearance I do not understand. We have just got off an international flight - transit passengers surely aren't combined with new passengers who have not been through security in Warsaw."
Pros: "LOT does great with boarding, food, and entertainment. The food is very tasty and plentiful. The boarding process is smooth and the people are very nice. And the selection of movies and TV is very broad, and the equipment works well."
Cons: "The crew on the plane are short with passengers and don't seem to go out of their way to make passengers comfortable. This lack of effort stands out very much in the background of super-uncomfortable seats on Dreamliners. There is relatively much less space available for passengers between rows and between seats themselves. It makes long flights exceptionally painful, especially for people who are not extra small or young. I have gotten to the point that I choose to fly different airlines even if that means a bit more money and an extra stop because I cannot handle 8 or 9 hours on the Dreamliners, especially when the flights are full."
Pros: "Very caring flight attendants, awesome service."
Cons: "Took too long to get our luggage."
Pros: "Keeping announcements to minimum hence allowing for silence and sleep was great. Personally, being served a meal around midnight seems unnecessary. My preference would be for a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Modern aircraft."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating for long-haul flight. I survived, though."
Pros: "NOTHING...!!!!!! ZEROOO STARS....very unprofesionall...., this was my first and last time traveling with this aholes..........!!!"
Cons: "I don’t wana waste my time anymore talking about this f...... joke of company.......necer again"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic. Switched gates (m5 on boarding pass, actually m4. Shoud have announced or left a note."
Pros: "The staff were great. Very attentive and professional. I wasn't aware that you have to order a vegetarian meal in advance. When I told the gentleman that I needed a vegetarian meal he said there were none available but he did his best to accommodate me with putting together bits and pieces of other meals. He did manage to find a vegetarian meal for me for breakfast."
Cons: "I am a vegan. I thought they would have some vegetarian meals for dinner without me having to order them in advance. They should have more options than chicken or beef."
Pros: "Everything from the flight, food & service exceeded expectations. Business class was exceptional."
Pros: "I like that I flew on a modern aircraft with good amenities."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours. Check in took longer than it has ever taken."
Cons: "Missed boarding by 3 min"
Cons: "No new movies or no tv shows to watch on a 9hr flight. If I knew I would have downloaded movies on my phone or on a usb stick(u have the possibility of using those). Horrible food, cannot even describe! No free alcohol. If you pay cash for the alcohol you end up paying double as if you pay with Credit card. I paid for 3 drinks, were brought only 2 and when I asked for the 3rd one they didn't understand what I want. Crew speaks only polish, they have little knowledge of English language. They are not helpful and they don't care about passengers! Delays on every flight, Friday LOT airline doesn't have to many flights out of Warsaw! Be aware, in the event of a delay and loosing your connecting flight you might end up spending a night in Warsaw. I WILL NEVER USE LOT AGAIN and I will make sure to spread the word!!!"
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm; a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "The Dreamliner was a nice aircraft and the entertainment screens were in great condition."
Cons: "Seating was tight as usual on all planes. The seat cushion was worn down and was hard. Crew were not overly friendly but weren't rude either. They won't be winning any customer service awards. They didn't offer drinks as often as United has especially on an international flight. They need to offer water more frequently."
Pros: "Was ok"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Wide, comfy seats, nice crew, good food"
Cons: "Poor selection of movies"
Cons: "Nor enough beverage for such a long flight Ice cube?"
Pros: "Everything was great, except the food which was a bit weird."
Pros: "Very attentive staff. Comfortable seats. I fell asleep somewhere in Canada and woke up in Brussels. Amazing."
Cons: "The plane was seven hours late/"
Pros: "The crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Turbulences over the Great Lakes, but nobody can control that!"
Cons: "We had 2 people traveling. The first person thought the food was very poor. Her other flight overseas was with Lufthansa and so she expected food similar to their flight. It was not at all. The quality of foods was dramatically different and Lufthansa even offered complimentary wine & beer with the meal. The second person needed a gluten-free menu due to gluten sensitivity. However, her meals also came dairy-free, so she wasn't even given real butter. She was offered no salad dressings so her salad was eaten dry. The chicken was extremely dry. The 2nd meal (breakfast-like) was horrible dry bread with cucumber, lettuce and tomato -- no meat, no cheese, no protein at all! The regular meals were also given yogurt, where she just got cut up fruit. Protein is extremely important in each meal and LOT failed to provide this. When asking a steward whether she could at least get a yogurt like the regular passengers, they were unable to help her."
Cons: "Delayed flight Lost baggage No one could explain what to do.."
Pros: "Comfortable, great service and leg room, lots of movie and tv choices. Great flight!"
Pros: "I really liked flying polish airlines. Staff all around was excellent."
Cons: "I didn't realize I needed their headphones to watch movies."
