Staff is lovely, entertainment okay, and food quite good. But the plane is just old. Feels like a 90s business class...
The airline denied boarding due to ticketing issue and failed to provide any alternate connections. A really awful experience :(
LOT turned out to be a nightmare of a company, they delayed the first flight so I skipped the second, i had LOT business both flights, they didn’t care to help find another flight i had to buy economy and pay 230 extra with them. Horrible experience and of course they didn’t provide a hotel as the flight was next day
No pillow or blanket or vanity kit on the Delhi-Warsaw sector.
Due to understaffing and a stunning lack of concern, they cause a mother with two small girls to miss her connecting flight—it would have been better to have ensured she had a chance to make it. Then, they blamed it on her, which, considering the layover time of only 1 hour and 35 minutes, a delayed landing, long lines for the transportation troley, and longer lines at security and passport check, is unreasonable bordering on the insane. Then, they refused to help her rebook the next day. Then, after hours of waiting, they informed her that her luggage is lost—they are not sure where it is. In addition, they didn’t even bother to direct a lone mother with two little girls to a hotel or ensure availability, not to mention giving her a voucher. So, it is difficult to even fathom a worse experience or a more callous lack of care.
Everything could have been better, from boarding to the final destination. The plane was at the gate in LAX for hours, but the boarding was delayed by almost two hours. During the flight to Warsaw the crew was mean and impolite all along. Because the flight took off with two hours delay, we lost the connection in Warsaw. When we asked for accommodation at the transfer desk, the lady over there was very mean, and lied to us saying no accommodation can be made because there are no available hotels due to a major festival in the city. That was totally not true, the receptionist at the hotel confirmed that no festival was in the city that week/weekend. Very disappointed about the LOT experience, we have major concerns for the returning flights. We’ll never use LOT again!

Pros: "The seats and entertainment on the screen."
Cons: "2 hour flight delay in LA. Then had to stand in line for 2.5 hours for rebooking the following morning. Then my new connected flight was delayed 1.5 hours. Then they left my bag in warsaw and it's been 2 days and I can't get a hold of anyone for my bag"

Pros: "Food best airline food I have had in a long while."
Cons: "Checkin...they charged me 120USD for 2nd bag because my roll on was 3kg over. I then see all the carry on other people had was ridiculous. I got delayed by 30 odd hours 2 weeks ago by Lot airlines with no compensation, I then get charged extra 120...."

Cons: "New Airplane"
Cons: "inflight entertainment wasn't working on my seat only which made my 6 hour flight seem even longer :("

Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding for a busy flight. Efficient, attentive and intuitive cabin crew. Good in-flight entertainment and facilities."

Cons: "Lousy food"
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "It got me home I was able to watch a movie They gave me the whole can of Coke Zero I got both the pretzels AND the cookies A321 aircraft, so power at every seat and good entertainment options"
Cons: "Ended up being in a row of three broad-shouldered men, so the "Preferred" seat I paid extra for was not very preferable I despise the practice of making some seats require additional $$$ - just so they can advertise lower fares. Flight was delayed, which is more common than I'd like They're stuffing planes fuller and fuller while offering fewer and fewer amenities at an ever-increasing price with multiple additional costs"

Pros: "Great movie selection and beautiful plane!"
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Pros: "Business seats comfortable."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed 8 hours and we were given vouchers for a hotel stay which was nice; however, a supervisor named Lauri in Phoenix stated "it was my dog, my problem" after my request for AA to reimburse me for a $50 pet fee at the hotel. What a nice thing to say to someone who paid $125 one-way to stick a dog under a seat."
Pros: "good noise cancellation"
Pros: "Decent service crew"
Cons: "Boarding, seating, comfort, media, food and general value.."

Cons: "Economy seating was very cramped, even for me at 5’5”. The plane didn’t have WiFi, which is unacceptable in 2018."

Cons: "I did not like the food"
Pros: "Everything thank u"
Cons: "My husband and I paid a combined $100 to reserve seats on our flight from LAX to London. When we got to check-in at LAX airport we did not get our reserved seats. Everything had been changed around. We did not even have seats next to each other. Upon complaining at arrival in London (there was no time at LAX to deal with this, as usual that airport was one chaotic mess) we were given a British Airways business card with a phone number that did not work/had been disconnected. I would like to get the $100 reservation fee back. Thank you."
Pros: "Good attitudes"
Pros: "The woman at the check in desk worked patiently with us until she found us an alternate route. We werare given food and hotel vouchers to get us through the night."
Cons: "Our British Airways flight was downgraded to a smaller airplane and we were not informed of this until we were in an hour in to waiting in a very long line to check in at the airport. We were unable to check in online the night before but not told why, and then we were unable to check in at the electronic kiosk at the airport but also not told way. When we got into the very confused and long line at the check-in desk 2.5 hours before our scheduled departure, we waited for almost an hour before anybody told us what was going on. They then told us that the flight has been downgraded to a smaller airplane, and that the agents were individually looking into rerouting passengers as they came up to the desk. Yeah sure does that the flight would not leave until everything was resolved and that people who had purchased their flights earlier would have priority. We then waited another 1.5 hours before it was our turn to speak to an agent at the desk. She told us that we would definitely not be getting on the flight because we had not checked in in time, which we had been unable to do. She then worked on rerouting us and offered us what sounded like an excellent flight option direct to Amsterdam on KLM the following day, however when we went to KLM to check in for the flight they said it was overbooked and we could go standby but we would not be guaranteed seats. We went back to her again and she eventually booked us on a Delta flight through Salt Lake City leaving the following day. We are currently in Salt Lake awaiting our flight to Amsterdam. This gets us to Amsterdam 12 hours after planned, Shortening our vacation with friends and causing us to miss events that have been planned. We are very upset that there was no information provided to us earlier and that British Airways did not, as is customary, first seek volunteers to take later flights, before bumping people off due to a lack of seats on their available plane. Instead they gave priority to people that had paid more money to check in with priority. We booked our flights 3 1/2 months ahead of time and feel that we were grossly AND unnecessarily put out by the actions and lack of communication throughout the process with British Airways."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, but after I took another flight, I was notified that my flight had merely been postponed for half an hour. By this time, I'd already missed my train in Frankfurt, creating hours of extra travel time and huge inconvenience after an already long trip from the US. British Airways said the cancellation had been due to weather, but skies were clear from London to Frankfurt. I'll never fly BA again."
Pros: "Entertainment and space."
Cons: "Seat cushioning, and food quality."
Cons: "I thought the seats we were not comfortable"

Pros: "They had a lot of entertainment options"
Cons: "I was skipped over when they served dinner"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. Food was quite good. Crew were helpful."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"

Cons: "Not much leg room in economy"
Pros: "Service was excellent!"
Cons: "On time, courtesy courtesy was second to none!!"
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."

Cons: "Nothing that was good."
Cons: "Since you now have to pay for additional luggage, which I have always done in the past, I find it increasing infuriating that when boarding the plane to store my carry on luggage I have not been able to store this appropriately, I am led to believe as a paying customer I should not have to store my carry on luggage by my feet because the overhead cabin is not available to me. ."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The food was below average even for airline food. One of the flight attendants was rude to one of the passengers even though the passenger was not doing anything out of normal."
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival, very kind and solicitous flight attendants."
Pros: "Hello I saw charged the ticket twice !!!! Thank you"
Pros: "My flight was delayed by 30 min and therefore I had to reschedule my flight from London to Frankfurt! That made me lose 3 hrs at the airport!"
Cons: "Delayed flight! Seats were uncomfortable and very small!"
