Cons: "All of my bags got left behind. We landed over 18h ago and there is still no information about them"
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."
Cons: "They lost my baggage"
Pros: "Flight was empty so there was extra room"
Cons: "Entertainment on my seat wasn’t working"
Pros: "Overall very good - no complaints. LOT is comparable with Lufthansa and KLM (the airlines I have most experience with) in terms of service and space. Boarding in Warsaw was chaotic - no announcements it just sort of started, I was in Zone 3 but there were only lines for Zones 1 and 2. The usual Central European pushing into the line. Flight was nice, smooth and good service. Leg room is limited but that is to be expected on any airline and flight. Would fly LOT again happily. On time, Captain made regular announcements. I arrived safely, as did my luggage. Can't wait for the direct service between Chicago and Budapest."
Pros: "Very good pilots, good flight without any noise or air pockets."
Cons: "The flight back departed in a delay of 40 minutes, we lended very late."
Pros: "They were efficient though. So in this case I need to recognize and congratulate the crew they were there they delivered the service."
Cons: "Again same thing crew unfriendly not even the smallest smile."
Pros: "Kind crew, clean and comfortable plane"
Cons: "ANA's dreamliners have better designed seats; they do not recline by slide"
Pros: "No delays, nice stuff."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like."
Pros: "We didn't even really fly this route. Had to go to Hamburg then Frankfurt."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled. Employees lied to us about other flight information. Other passengers received food and water as a small compensation and we received nothing, even though our same flight was cancelled. They had to rebook us twice due to their mistake and no one even apologized. Barely made any effort into helping us from their own mistake."
Pros: "Great crew. Waited for passengers from late transfer."
Cons: "Too small."
Pros: "I am an oriental origin and the food that was served was not appealing. But, it was ok."
Cons: "It did not have vegetable, almost none."
Pros: "Flight was without delays"
Cons: "Baggage was extra cost"
Pros: "Confortable flight, pleasant crew, would definitively fly again."
Pros: "The crew was nice and courteous. Many amenities to pass the time. Getting off the plane was quick and painless. Food was reasonable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour, which is fine, but no information was given to why and we started boarding at the updated takeoff time. The process of getting zones lined up and on the plane was a mess. They didn't communicate clearly about zones so every passenger got up and in line, lines weren't directed well, and people kept getting chastized for not knowing what was going on. Once we boarded the plane, we sat for an hour with no reasoning why we waited. When you already have a 9 hour flight, less time stuck in your seat is best. It was hard to understand the pilot when he spoke in English to know why we had delays and any updates while on the plane."
Pros: "The service crew in the plane were cordial and professional."
Cons: "The ground staff and customer service staff made mistakes with our infant's name and twice her ticket got canceled. Instead of saying that they will just fix it they blamed us and were very rude to us when they had to fix their mistake. I suggest that you train your staff in customer service or you will continue to lose good customers"
Pros: "Customer service was good and flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Credit cards didn't work in flight."
Cons: "Departure was delayed. Got held on ground at Chicago. Baggage was very late to arrive"
Pros: "The food was good for an airline. on business class dreamliner from Toronto to Warsaw the seat is comfortable, if a little short for a 6'5" person. In the sos called "buisness class" to Israel the seats are as crampped as any cattle class of a low cost. I wish those idiots that invented "euro club" would understand that it is a first class ripp-off and that if they are only flying two people per side using real comfortable seats makes faar more sense. In short - euro club is BS of teh worst class."
Cons: "The atitude of teh staff on teh flight was OK. Other than that very sour including teh check-in and teh businss club. Going through the border control in Warsaw took 45 minutes. Luckily the flight was delayed. In short, the attitude is strictly old fashion eastern block. On the dreamliner business classs the TV's did not work, but in any case they are way too far (about 6 feet) from the passanger for comfort. Very impractical."
Pros: "Calm flight, good service, not many people"
Cons: "It was a bit dark and the seats were uncomfortable, the Windows were dirty."
Pros: "Service, listening to my questions, overall!!"
Cons: "no Wi-Fi..."
Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Seats are for small legs No food No water to drink"
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?"
Cons: "The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant."
Cons: "Had to spend the night in Toronto for flight delay"
Pros: "Everything, good food, good people, good times"
Cons: "They lost our checked baggage. Luckily we did get them back within 20 hours."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfy, snack provided even though the flight was short"
Cons: "Cabin could have been a little cleaner before boarding"
Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew are very proffesional."
Pros: "Everything on time"
Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."
Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."
Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "We had lots of leg room unlike the Air Canada Rouge flight that we took from Toronto ON to Kelowna BC. Also very little table on the rouge flight."
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"
Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."
Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."
Pros: "Entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"
Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."
Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."
Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."
Cons: "No good movies or music"
Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."
Pros: "Leg room was great."
Cons: "The pilot wasn't that good. It wasn't a smooth landing at all."
Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."
Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"
Cons: "There was no access to movies."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the seats and how fast the boarding and take off was."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not offered peanuts during my flight. The last time they offered free peanuts"
Pros: "as above"
Pros: "Space and meals"
Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"
Pros: "Comfortable and large plane with tvs"
Pros: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"
Pros: "The plane was fairly modern and the seating had more leg room than many other economy flights I have taken. The flight attendants were friendly and courteous. All-in-all a very good flight. I was especially appreciative of the concessions made for skiers when it came to luggage. Also, the luggage fees were very reasonable."
Cons: "I was a bit surprised that no snacks were offered free of charge. I can understand that meals are not included in economy, but nuts, cookies or some pretzels would be nice."
Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."
Pros: "Hourly flights in a Boing 676. Comfy economy class seats with leather headrest (cleaner than fabric). Ample overhead space for carry ons. Individual TV monitors with entertainment (I prefer leaving it on flight itinerary status while reading a book). Good bretzels & tomato juice served by a multilingual flight staff. Boarding, departure & arrival on time to the second. Can't ask for more."
Pros: "Flight attendant very caring and friendly."
Cons: "Gate attendant very rude - made my daughter cry Her seat was way at the back. Baggage handlers lost a luggage strap - sturdy one 7 boarding pass The gate was changed to one at the end farthest from original gate It was supposed to be two flights - she ended up with 7 boarding passes in the end. Second really unpleasant flight with Air Canada in less than a year. Will avoid Air Canada from here on."
Cons: "Salty pretzels!"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "not even a little snack served with the drinks and the amount of legroom was minimal and I'm not tall"
Pros: "The crew actually enforced the zones when boarding, which often isn't the case and tends to slow things down."
Cons: "This connecting flight was worse, as we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour and were not provided with so much as a single beverage the entire time we were waiting or flying. Apart from the great in-flight entertainment system, the whole experience was brutal."
Cons: "Ticketed for Air Canada, but it was a code share flight with United Airlines. The check in at United took over 15 minutes because my reservation was not recognized by the United online system. Luckily a United agent was able to work through my paperwork and get me checked in, with luggage, via Ottawa to London, Heathrow. However, at the boarding gate for my flight to Ottawa, my boarding pass was deemed invalid and it took another 15 minutes to issue a new boarding pass - with seating at the back of the bus. Was a frustrating/annoying process. Luckily I encountered two capable United employees who worked to resolve the issues."
Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."
Pros: "Gate assignment was only 44 minutes before take off and with the size of LHR got there after boarding had started. Confusion as right beside it was an AC direct flight to Toronto also boarding so lines were mixing. A hot meal provided which was good except for a stale roll and awful "salad". A hot wrap provided later in flight that was awful, should have used pizza pockets. Good crew and good flight. Always carry active noise cancelling ear buds or headphones."
