Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."

Cons: "It was all good."
Cons: "Connecting flight in Warsaw was horrible. Warsaw airport is not prepared to help people that have little (1 hour) time to catch other flights. It's a nightmare."
Pros: "Could check my suitcase earlier (arrived at airport too early). I had a bit off over 23 kg but that did not pose any problem. Boarding was quiet fast and almost with timetable. The food was good and service provided pleasant. I was happy that we landed safely providing bad weather in Toronto that evening."
Pros: "Both flights I was on were somewhat empty, so I had an open seat next to me. Despite some delays taking off, each arrival was not too late."

Pros: "getting snack & drinks without charge"
Pros: "I liked the food."
Cons: "There was a lot of passengers crowding the aisles making is very difficult to get around and the crew did not seem to do anything about it. The person in front of people up standing around a lot and even had her hand on my entertainment screen. She also did not seem to care if the seatbelt sign was on our not. The boarding was just chaos with little direction and of course everyone pushing to be first on the plane."
Cons: "I was forced to check in my hand luggage, but the Amsterdam personnel attached to it a tag without any flight information, so this luggage missed my plane in Warsaw on the connecting flight and arrived later that day as misplaced piece. LOT needs to fix the hand luggage tagging system on connecting flights."
Pros: "You didn't confirm You sent me a message something was wrong with my reservation!! I purchased new ticket!!"
Pros: "the flight and service was decent"
Cons: "The check in process lacked. I unexpectedly had to check my bag, they charged me 70 Euro ($85) which required I go to two separate counters. One to check the bag and a second (upstairs) to pay. Both attendants lacked a sense of urgency. In fact, they acted like it was their job to go as slowly as possible. Even after I mentioned I was starting to feel stressed about the time. I overheard other attendants complaining about customers who check in late and expect them to move more quickly. I found their apathy offensive. To add insult to injury, they lost my bags. Having paid $85, which I think is outrageously and obscenely expensive, I'd at least expect my bag to be well taken care of. Sadly, it wasn't. The lost luggage counter was also apathetic, though I realize they are not LOT/Luftansa."
Pros: "The boarding and the flight itself was fast as there were a lot of people for connecting flights in Warsaw."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 1.5h which is not ok. I see that for LOT is a standard practice unfortunately."
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: "I've had two LOT flights and both have been very pleasant. Language was my biggest worry but almost everyone speaks English to a degree. The seats had more room than most domestic American economy flights...very good."
Cons: "I have nothing bad to say."
Cons: "the cabin was so hot!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour - boarding was delayed 5 minutes at a time so you needed to stay by the gate."
Pros: "they were not very late - within one hour."
Cons: "For three of us we had only one bag to check. They charged us 70 euro for that bag. All their flights were 30-60 minute late."
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."
Pros: "Boarding was very fast."
Cons: "Boarding started at least half an hour late."
Pros: "Price, many food options"
Cons: "Never seen seats so close together."
Cons: "Unpleasant crew members"
Cons: "Delayed a lot in Warsaw airport."

Pros: "Service, food, entertainment were of good quality"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 40 min; after landing the plane was sitting on the field forever; during descent, my ears started aching, and I think I got some kind of vestibular system damage, possibly from an overly fast descent. Not good."
Pros: "The entertainment on the plane was great. Large selection of movies, music, and TV shows to keep yourself entertained. The dinner was adequate. It was also nice having the overhead screens continually update our flight progress."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly cramped, by the end I was feeling seriously claustrophobic. It didn't help that we left late. The boarding process was a mess, nobody seemed to know what to do, and the announcements were all mumbled to the point where I was just guessing what to do. The second meal served was inedible as the bread was completely stale. Also, one of the toilets was broken and kept flushing, even when sitting on it. Like the boarding process, disembarking was sloppy and confusing. It took a very long time to open the door, and they only told people at the last minute that they needed to get their passports out."
Cons: "I needed to make an international call to Poland to order a special meal.There was no option to do it online. The special meal was served in a timely manner, however, the food seemed not natural."
Pros: "The crew members were very nice!"
Cons: "I had a very bad experience at the beginning of my journey on 11/18/2016 at Sheremet'evo airport in Moscow. I almost had a heart attack when Anna Aleksandrovna Esina (agent at registration counter #131) informed me that my ticket has been cancelled and she does not see me on the passenger list. I was in shock when I heard that and ready to cry as I was so anxious to get back home. Then she added that it is not her job to look for my ticket and there is nothing she can do for me. She did not want to make any effort and do something to resolve the issue. With the help of another agent it was determined that I WAS on the passenger list and I finally (after some agonizing time) was given my two boarding passes. It is amazing how just one unprofessional agent can spoil your trip... Thankfully the rest of my journey went really well!"
Pros: "It is the first time I flew with Lot airline. I am flying a lot and have 2 million miles with United I never flew LOT before.Now Lot is on the top of my list for my future flights.Everything was superior to many other airlines from the Plane,the crew,the food,the service,etc."
Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "entertainment system did not work properly,food was worse than fast food,cabin crew was average at best."
Cons: "15 minute delay waiting for a gate to become available after taxiing to the terminal at JFK. Ridiculous!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and I did not get any calls , e mails or text messages about it. So I spend 5 hours in JFK. I have to catch another flight from Warsow and crew on bort did everything to help us. It was said another plain is going to wait for us. NOBODY was waiting even we were late like 20 min.so we have to flight from Poland to Swiden and finely flight from Swiden to Riga. What we have out of out trouble ? Voucher go 10 dollars for food."
Pros: "Practically nothing"
Cons: "The flight was late and we missed our connecting flight delaying our trip."
