Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, very helpful after our plane was diverted"
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
Cons: "No good food options just peanuts and drinks"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "There should atleast one checked luggage"
Cons: "Too expensive and baggage charge is additional which does not make any sense"
Pros: "The flight attendants were stellar--polite, respectful, helpful, attentive. I want to particularly commend the attendant who, after I notified her that someone was very ill in the adjacent bathroom, stood discreetly nearby and offered the person a glass of water when he emerged. Very considerate."
Cons: "The transfer was a horrible, stressful experience. We knew it as a short connection but Lufthansa had accepted it. On our outward bound flight three weeks earlier, we were all met and escorted swiftly by a flight attendant from the first leg plane (EWR-MUN) to the second leg plane (MUN-Nice) to ensure that we all made it onboard. Impressive. On our return journey, no such luck! No attendant to meet us, and a huge line at immigration, full of panicked and stressed-out passengers jockeying for position, with no-one from ANY airline there to do a triage for those with the shortest connections. Ridiculous. In addition, the passport-scanning machines were very slow and quirky. My own passport was rejected because there was no evidence I had passed through Munich on my outward bound journey!! RIDICULOUS. I managed to slip through to a human being and begged the immigration officer to let me go through with my husband, who had had no such problem. The officer told me he could not find a stamp from my earlier transit through!!! Eventually I suppose he did because he let me through. The stamp was there, I found it, but it had been sloppily applied and was half off the page...hence the rejection by the scanner. We made the flight by minutes. NOT GOOD! Surely Lufthansa could do better in their own country???"
Cons: "Everything was excellent! I will be flying with them again!"
Pros: "On time, efficient."
Cons: "Food is becoming more and more of a joke on Lufthansa, gone are the bad sandwiches, now it is just sweets."
Cons: "I don't know"
Pros: "All great except my seat."
Cons: "Window seat was completely obstructed by wing!! Seat uncomfortable but sat on pillow provided which helped a lot."
Pros: "Nothing to say anything flight is cancelled two time. Fed up of Lufthansa service."
Cons: "Change flight rules and regulations. Shouldn't cancel any flight even one passenger booked air ticket. Lufthansa is very worst service."
Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Nothing to note"
Cons: "I arranged assistance but nobody showed up."
Pros: "Could not get skybridge to operate so that we could disembark. United airlines."
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 flight had plenty of leg room and a snack with drink was served free which was a nice touch."
Cons: "Very cramped seating on first part of journey from Budapest to Munich"
Pros: "everything - especially the way they treat their customers."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Two flights were both late Had to run to gate Luggage delayed"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Comfortable, timely and pleasant overall."
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: "Crew was not friendly or very helpful, nothing stood out. As this was the first leg of my international flight, it would have been much better I had proper food, rather than a bag of 6 pretzels, especially since I had to be at the airport three hours earlier, and I had a six hour layover in Newark."
Pros: "more than 2 hours spent in the plane which was the reason for waiting at the airport taxi and extra pay."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "everthing was good!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Marginal legroom"
Pros: "It was unclear how to do the boarding after priority boarding. People seems to board whenever they wanted; so was a bit confusing."
Cons: "The whole trip was a nightmare. I go out of my way to NOT fly United, In this case Lufthansa somehow just sold the ticket and United was flying it and as usual it was horrendous. We had to be re-routed via 3 separate flights jus to make our international connection thanks to our initial flight being moved up 2 hours EARLY. They closed the door in our faces. That added 8 hours of travel time to our trip which I had booked to minimize travel time as I was traveling with pets. United is the WORST."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "The politeness and friendly demenor of the LH crew is very refreshing and makes for easing the stress of a long journey. The seating arrangement and the below deck toilets were also nice. Seating next to toilets is never comfortable and moving them downstairs is a great idea,"
Cons: "We couldnt fly because our name was in different order and they didnt want to change the order of our names."
Pros: "Lufthansa has us on a short connection in Munich. But instead of bumping us like Air Canada, which does not care about customers, Lufthansa got a little van for our family of 5, took us through expedited passport control and helped us reach our flight. They have done a superb job and it is great to see an airline that has a very capable ground crew as well as air crew. Lufthansa made us feel like they cared about us and trust me traveling with three kids under 6 we very much appreciated it and they will have our return business!!"
Cons: "The Budapest Airport was not very organized for check-in."
Pros: "Coffee was excellent"
Pros: "terrible earphone, could listen only on one ear."
Pros: "...and not for the first time.. And won't be the last.."
Cons: "Wifi onboard wasn't working.."
Cons: "Agents in Budapest were not pleasant at all."
Cons: "The descent was very uneven, with long sudden drops in altitude. The touchdown was hard enough, but much worse was the apparent loss of control immediately afterward as the plane swerved left and right for 5-10 sec. No acknowledgement or explanation was given by the crew."
Pros: "very clean and nice cabin space"
Cons: "Whole experience with them was a nightmare and is still ongoing. They won't help me so I had to turn to Amex to settle everything and get my money back. Unbelievable. The airport had to close due to an emergency, that's out of Lufthansa's hands I obviously understand that. However, the way we were "helped" through all of this was unbelievable- over two and a half hours of phone calls with them, while in Europe (so paying God knows what per minute), 4 hours to get my luggage back so we could leave, absolutely no one from Lufthansa around to help or even tell us what's going on, put us on a flight the following day with two layovers now (paid more for only one layover but what can I do). Next day, at Alitalia gate (Lufthansa put me on an itinerary with flights from Alitalia, Lufthansa and United) had to pay AGAIN to check the bag that I had just paid to check the previous day where we did not end up flying anywhere (showed Alitalia the receipt, they didn't care in the slightest and said its Lufthansas problem, 0 stars for them as well), either way finally got through our 2 layovers, only to discover the final leg of our trip (United/ Lufthansa flight) is delayed 3 hours. Just about to board, now it's delayed another 5 hours. Because we were short a pilot...... Short a pilot, really....? Ended up getting home at 2am on a work night, completely jet lagged and utterly exhausted from being in an airport for 2 straight days. Supposed to get compensation as per United flight crew, only I put my ticket information in the website and it doesn't work for me of course because I have a Lufthansa ticket. No one cares, no one helps, now it's time for Amex to step in and get all of my money back."
Pros: "A little unhappy looking stewardesses but politely professional."
Pros: "- Polite, professional, flexible service by crew - No delays - Quick check in - Free of charge alcohol - Free coffee & newspaper at Munich Airport (Lufthansa)"
Cons: "- No entertainment touchscreen but on a short flight is a understanable"
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "more comedies movies and more up to date soccer"
Pros: "I'v said it all above. Liked everthng"
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of the better airlines, especially when flying to Germany. They offer a very good service in the economy class which includes free wine (and not only sodas) and a large selection of free newspapers which I value a lot. Newspapers are much more interesting to read than watching movies in my personal opinion. Overall, when aboard Lufthansa, one does not have the feeling of cheapness seen so often on competing airlines. A few years ago, when flying from San Diego to New York, a 5 hour flight on a major US carrier, passengers were not even offered a free drink. Everything had to be paid for. In comparison, all food and all drinks are free on Lufthansa which includes not only wine but also Baileys (a sweet liquor). Given the excellent service, ticket prices charged by Lufthansa are a bargain even if at a small premium over the competition."
Pros: "Traveled with my dog. They had empty row so United moved us there so dog can be comfortable under the middle seat. Staff was very nice and offered water and ice for the dog."
Cons: "Pilot did not yet to avoid turbulences, which were pretty bad. They also lost my luggage which arrived after three days."
Pros: "Comfortable and convenient"
Pros: "Being assigned seat only ten minutes before take off is not ideal"
Cons: "Friendlier crews"
Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."
Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."
Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was very good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."
Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
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."
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude"
Pros: "Same comments"
Cons: "Same comments"
Pros: "Could not get seat assignments online when checking in."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew! Good food and drink"
Cons: "We left an hour late due to "paperwork". Made for a long flight on a long day."
Pros: "Professionalism and courtesy!"
Pros: "Air Lingus is my new preferred carrier. They combine updated technology with old time"
Cons: "Courtesy and constant detail attention. They didn’t have enough staff at the gate to get passengers through on time causing us to miss the push off slot and had to wait on the tarmac an hour for another."
Cons: "Everything. 'Nuff said."
Pros: "New and very comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Clean and comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Best food I ever had on a plane"
Cons: "Felt like it was very difficult to obtain water. Confusion with checking in at the gate"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Aer Lingus does a fantastic job with everything. They are fast and efficient and super hospitable."
Cons: "I always wish I had a bit more room."
Pros: "Never made the flight"
Pros: "Pre clearance in Dublin Lounge Seat facilities"
Pros: "JFK flight - exit row has TONS of space at modest cost. Latest movies showing for free."
Cons: "Inconsistent food: was decent outbound but less so on the return. Doesn't participate in TSA Pre."
Pros: "All worked smoothly"
Cons: "Service and friendliness"
Pros: "average to below average"
Cons: "robbery for a small glass of wine - $8"
Cons: "Overall good experience"
Pros: "Service, friendliness. The cabin crew seemed like truly genuine, nice people."
Cons: "The food was pretty poor (I had the chicken) and the seats weren't roomy enough. The service video at the beginning was very utilitarian. (3 on a scale of 1-10, where Air New Zealand is a 10.)"
Cons: "i think the chairs could be more comfortable"
Pros: "It was just cooln"
Pros: "Boarding Gate crew were good."
Cons: "Seat cushions are worn out. Need new foam. Hostesses spent more time talking to each other during food and beverage service than to the passenger."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "entertainment was great on board food was good (for airline food) staff was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Good seats."
Cons: "No place to charge the phone."
Pros: "Unacceptable never again will I recommend you"
Cons: "Utterly unprofessional"
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "The extremely rude ticket agent at the Venice airport that threw my boarding pass at me, even though I was following her explicit instructions. 50 characters isn't enough to explain what happened"
Pros: "They were really good with my daughter who was very scared of flying"
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment system. Lots of options."

Cons: "it was cancelled"
Pros: "Aer lingus in New York finally resolved problem"
Cons: "Needed to add my infant son to return leg of flight. He did not need a seat (lap infant) just a ticket. Neither JustFly or Aer Lingus (Dublin) could/would do this. Each said it was the others job. Eventually Aer Lingus office in New York added my son to flight. There seems to be a disconnect / confusion between airline and booking company regarding this matter."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seat was very tight (middle section, middle seat)"
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: "You can't beat the convenience of traveling without having a layover which are never guaranteed to be on time. The food isn't bad but service makes up for whatever shortcomings there are in that dept."
Cons: "I wish there was a kid meal option"
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: "Business class on the Dreamliner is a true dream."
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: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "The boarding was very slow."
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: "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: "Service, personal space. New aircraft."
Cons: "Wifi would be good"
Cons: "Terrible and stressful experience transferring at WAW airport with crowded security lines and no guiding personnel. Slight delay this time (compared to the first leg of my trip couple of weeks ago with 3h delay and missed connections)"
Pros: "Crew was very polite, smiling and accommodating , food was great quality, good selection of entertainment on board. Comparing what LOT was few years ago, they have made a huge progress and overall improved everything across the board. We got to destination before scheduled time."
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: "I am not sure where to start from but each lot employee I talk with had poor English and not the tinyest willing to help just to move , I had a flight back from cezh republic to JFK with a stop in Warsaw When I got to the front desk in the air port to print my ticket the Liady ( work at Sation 236 ) was very rude and anti costumer service she print me only my first fly ticket and when I ask why she " I don't know " I said ok so when u get there you know which get I go or where I will print the other ticket she say I don't know Ok and then I ask her can u check if it a room I. My flight from Warsaw to JFK in business it this moment she tell me I can switch sit and ask me to go I was shocked but this was only the bigining when I got to Warsaw I ask in the gate counter where should I go to print my ticket after I try to explain him 10 times what I mean ( he didn't speak English at all ) he told me to go pass the passport check and in gate 21 they will print it to me I fly a lot so I ask him if he sure becuse I am petty sure I will need my ticket the guy at the desk repeat imhim self so I want and waited 25-30 min in the line so the police officer in the passport check will tell me I need to go print my ticket So after the officer from the passport desk call someone he direct me to go to hate 26 and there they will print my ticket I want them and again wait for 15 min to print my ticket ( it was only me this is the sad thing I don't know what tool 15 min to print a ticket ) and it amazing how unsocial and 0 in customer service the lot polish employees I meet And this is without talking about the delay in my coming flight for 2-3 hrs ( a delay it something that happen a lot yes but the way they handled it again 0 in costumer service )"
Cons: "The flight attendant was very nice and professional but it was business class so u can't really compare I will definitely will not recommend ppl to fly with them This is not the service you accept for 3000$ flight"
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"
Pros: "Boarding process was fine."
Cons: "Old plane. Terrible entertainment system. We ordered Kosher meals. They cam from a company called Stogel. NOT FIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. Flight attendants disavowed responsibility for anything other than meal service because "this is not our aircraft.""
Cons: "I paid $ 55 extra for my seat # 20G.Company changed aircraft(it was Boeing 777-200).I did't get what i paid for. They gave me seat #30G(regular).Do i have a chance to get my money back?"
Cons: "the cabin was so hot!"
Pros: "I have been flying with them for the past 16 years(economy seats), and I have to say that their service,and comfort of overnight flights have improved tremendously! Partially due to the fact that they have 787 Dreamliners now, in which the seats are wider and are reclining more than before, the leg room is bigger, the air quality better. The crew members are very professional,not overly sweet,yet caring and understanding,especially when you are flying with small children.As to those complaining about overcharged luggage- read the rules people! If you go over the maximum limit of 50lb for a check in, let's say 2lb,they won't charge you,but don't expect them to close their eyes when your luggage weighs almost double that!"
Cons: "The food is ok, nicely packed, but even if you don't like it they have extra options to purchase for a small price."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "At boarding we were told we needed an additional security clearance "that way". When we searched for it and couldn't find it, we asked two different employees and they didn't know or offer to help. We finally found it but it wasn't a good experience. And finding out at boarding time was not helpful."
Cons: "Unable to choose seat at ticket purchase."
Cons: "Many people on this flight were bothered by the fact that their families were split up all over the airplane and no one could sit together. During boarding there were groups of people who had all been split up and were desperately trying to switch seats with others. I was traveling with a 15 year old, and even though she is not a small child it was very nerve wrecking to be seated 20 rows behind her, not being able to keep an eye on her (even more so because she gets car sick and has thrown up on airplanes before). I don't think I've ever flown where my group was not at least seated in pairs. This was very disappointing."
Cons: "The crew had everyone measure their suitcases and pay for overweight, which significantly delayed boarding."
Cons: "15 minute delay waiting for a gate to become available after taxiing to the terminal at JFK. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Attitude of the Stewart was terrible she was a little cocky and didn't appreciate her attitude"
Pros: "I only liked that I got to watch a few movies to kill the worst experience I had !"
Cons: "I didn't like that I got no food I asked for a water bottle never got it! I was hungry the entire flight I was only lucky to be close to the bathroom"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "After the flight was delayed for an hour several days in advance, I thought it could still be OK. But when they kept us at the gate for another 1.5 hours without any information as to why we were not boarding, I just about lost it. Delays happen. That is not the problem. But the staff was rude and did not inform us about when or if we would be leaving. When asked about missed connections, said they know nothing and the transfer desk will handle that. I was travelling with my cat, so for me it was super stressful. Once we did arrive to JFK, there were no more flights to RDU that night and it took forever and then some to get me a hotel that would accommodate a cat. Just fly another airline."
Pros: "everything perfect!"
Cons: "Loud passengers no crew attention."
Cons: "Using a bus to get to the airplane is very slow."
