My baggage was lost for several days
The delayed flight from Montreal was horrible, I know it was air Canada operated that flight but no gate open to be able to sit ,for 4 hours to wait after 2 flights and long hours. I will never flight with 2 layover and especially trough Montreal. Airport in Munich was the only civilized. Check in in Heraklion was also very slow and disappointed.
Frankfort airport was so unorganized and nothing worked according to the schedule
Flight delayed due to incoming flight problems. Slow boarding, no beverages on board, wanted to charge for coffee.
Delays Needed to board a buss to get to our airplane.
Cons: "It was good enough."
Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent professional and friendly. They were also very patient. The best part of the trip."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people on other flights with Lufthansa complain bitterly about the food. It has gone down hill. People should not be dreaming of Virgin Atlantic food while on a flight with Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Short boarding time.missed the flight and had to pay."
Cons: "Definitely the food!!"
Cons: "Food was poor. Movie options limited and the software frequently froze and needed rebooting."
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Cons: "Boarding be insured as I have a ticket"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Flights being on time. Friendlier staff. They would t have misplaced my luggage."
Pros: "All was fine on the flight."
Cons: "The woman at the "Groups" check in area on 4/20 Saturday morning had the personality of a cactus needle. She was condescending and sent us on a wild goose chase to pay for our bags. Why didn't she just send us to that area in the first place to take care of the check in process at the same place?"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Pros: "Really not many things to complain about on this kind of flight."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved. Especially when it comes to hand luggage placement. They should definitely introduce boarding by place of seats."
Pros: "Crew was so attentive and helpful. Very courteous and friendly. Had great experience."
Cons: "Head rest on Seats tilts slightly forward making long flight uncomfortable"
Pros: "Hate today but they do it better thanUS airlines."
Cons: "The lines in Frankfurt were horrible. It’s the airports fault though, not the airlines. We almost missed our connection."
Cons: "We were able to upgrade to a business class seat (row 1) just 2 days before the flight since we had put in a bid a month before to do so if it was accepted. Honestly, the seat DID NOT EVEN RECLINE, NOR DID IT FEEL VERY SPACIOUS! I felt very taken advantage of to only have access to that part of the plane giving us more leg room for $200 upgrade for each seat. When does a Business Class seat NOT recline??? At least my flight attendant was kind enough suggesting that I let the airline know about my unhappy experience."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Navigating very long distance between terminals. Terminal changes"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Plane was newer (and cleaner)."
Cons: "Passport control and security for connecting fights made the connection hell, also walking 10 miles to the gate"
Pros: "flight was good"
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Cons: "Same reason as above."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew is always wonderful as always."
Cons: "screaming and kicking child behind my seat, with no way to "escape". I had a severe cold and that was certainly not something I needed, I tried to get some rest, but that was impossible. The seats are getting smaller and smaller, hardly any legroom whatsoever. Also, what I had planned on bringing on the aircraft as carry on (which was my work equipment, tablet/printer etc), I had to check in as luggage because it was "overweight" meaning more than 8 kg and pay ADDITIONAL $200 (in addition to the $100 I already paid for one suitcase). I've seen many passengers with "heavy" carry on, which they were apparently allowed to bring into the cabin without any problems. I had never had to pay for any carry on, and I am seriously considering using another airline for future business travel."
Cons: "Crew was not nice at all. They would skip us along the way while serving others, or even drop ice on us, and never said sorry once (instead, they would say it's only ice, or if I want 2 since they skipped me already twice when serving tea unlike the passengers around me on both sides). We paid nearly $6k for the 3 of us, but the crew made us feel as if we paid nothing. The entertainment system did not work well, and most of the time the movies refused to play. We were always suggested to restart, and were not even given free access to internet as an alternative. No one ever apologized for anything in the entire flight, it felt like this flight was a favor."
Cons: "I didn't like anything"
Pros: "comfort ,crew was polite and catering delicious"
Cons: "Got delayed from atl to wash. And my flight from wash to munich left."
Cons: "Seats with no headrest and no entertainment"
Cons: "They forgot the luggage at Frankfurt."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable even in business"
Pros: "The food was kind of nice"
Cons: "Hardly any leg room, hardly any elbow room, got middle sitting on all my flights and the lay overs were terrible and last but not least my baggage were I had my holiday did not show up for two days. When it did I tipped the driver 20 pounds as he deserved it more than anyone anyways. Oh yeah almost forgot to mention my bag looks like it went through a meat grinder. Thanks Lufthansa baggage handlers your the best ever ! And BTW this para graph speaks for a my stops and transfers"
Cons: "Missed my flight because of other flight delayed. I had to rerouted through 2 extra airports."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive to the children. Ability to follow the flight with the cameras. Person in front of us leaned his seat back and I was unable to get out due to an injured left arm. He did agree to move forward when we requested."
Cons: "No choice on food. Bathroom ran out of toilet paper, even tho we had reported that it was getting low."
Pros: "Really everything great"
Cons: "flight entertainment had pretty bad failures. And bathrooms are centralized in center of plane where people congregate so you never know if bathrooms are occupied"
Pros: "This flight was fine. About as comfortable as I expected."
Cons: "I sat next to a man who had a vape pen and a can of chew with him. So the entire nine hours I spent smelling his mouth tobacco and I could do nothing about it. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "LOVED the fact that the business class seats lay back almost flat---much more comfortable. The flight attendants were very friendly and actually had a good sense of humor when appropriate ; ) Pleasantly surprised at the food choices and delighted that the drinks were all free, including the adult beverages, even for the economy seats that we were in on the way back..."
Cons: "Wish the seats could lay back a little bit more in the economy seat area..."
Pros: "short, slightly delayed flight"
Cons: "Overnight flights are usually a pain in the neck, which is obviously not the airline's fault"
Pros: "I appreciated the opportunity to purchase extra legroom in premium economy. It made the 10 flight more tolerable."
Pros: "Considering this was a 10 hour flight, I thought the plane was comfortable with decent leg room in economy class. We were served two hot meals, both of which were very good. There was also complimentary wine, beer, and spirits on board. It's been a while since I've flown overseas and was impressed with the wide array of available movies and in-flight entertainment. The crew was great and very attentive."
Cons: "It was the most chaotic boarding process I have ever seen. They had us at a gate with seats for about 50 people so people were crowded into the walkway area of the terminal. The announcements were very hard to hear if you weren't right by the person making them. There was no orderly boarding. Instead, there was a mad rush for those that weren't elite status of some sort to begin boarding."
Had to lay extra at the airport for baggage because LOT Airline website was not allowing me to purchase on there. This is the second time. So disappointed with this feature.
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "crew tried to help"
Cons: "missed connecting flight to szczecin"
Pros: "Fantastic crew Food very tasty"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Short connection time. Missed my next flight so they send me from Warsaw to Vienna and then to Belgrade. Entertainment screen was freezing every 10 min"
Pros: "The dinner was ample for airplane food."
Cons: "The seat was horribly narrow with little legroom and too much recline (barely room for tray table when person in front of me reclined, and the screen was in my face without being able to change angle). Crew could have been more attentive and generous with water. Beverage service rather limited."
Cons: "2hrs delay. Family members did not sit together."
Cons: "A faster boarding"
Cons: "A faster boarding"
Cons: "Neatness, communication, all LOT airline workers were very rude, no food on flight."
Cons: "Having to be bussed both two and from the planes by a surety ground staff stinks"
Cons: "Everything is perfect you can take this flight"
Cons: "Flight delays, late boarding, better service"
Cons: "one hour late at departure, otherwise an ok trip"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and gate was changed 4 times. Unbelievable!!!"
Cons: "Late boarding, late in arrival, not so great service"
Cons: "Seat layout"
Pros: "The new release movies included in the entertainment system were relatively new but not very many System had to reboot a couple of times Food and drinks were par with the industry standards nowadays"
Cons: "Food and drinks standards are lowered every year. Not necessarily LOT’s fault"
Pros: "I DIDNT TAKE A FLIGHT TO LONDON DONT KNOW WHAT YOURE TALKING ABOUT"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Employers are rude, food is not eatable seats are not comfortable ..."
Pros: "Very nice new Dreamlianer , very clear , nice staff friendly and cooperative, food quality good, entertainment list very good , nice flight for very reasonable price , much better then LH"
Pros: "787 Dreamliner is comfortable and feels more spacious."
Cons: "LOT was late on every flight. Did not miss any connections, but could not leave on-time if it was there only responsibility."
Cons: "Did not take it, was late and missed the flight"
Pros: "I went from Belgrade to WAW and then to Chicago. The flight from Belgrade was delayed by almost two hrs which made out flight to Chicago delyed as well. This was my first time flying with LOT and so far so good. I think the flights from WAW are delayed bcz of the other flights coming into WAW are delyed and since there are only one international flight a day they wait for these flights to arrive so they can take off. This is what happened in my case. The crew was very nice. I traveled with two small children and they were very helpful. I would def flight with LOT again"
Cons: "There were no coffee being offered or kids snackes"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "At check in the website did not allow me to purchase checked baggage. I arrived at the airport and paid 80 Euros to check in my 12kilo bag. I bought I would be proactive and pay for the baggage for my return(only 20 euros). I received only a receipt for the 20 euros, but paid 63,250 drams. Something is shady and I feel duped. The flight was over an hour late with no explanation. There was a plane at the gate when we landed, which added to the tardiness of arrival. They were so non Chalant about so many people missing their connecting flights. It was like they already knew they were going to put us on Lufthansa 2 hours later... polish airlines Is awful- the airport personnel even worse. No one respects standing in line. Airport officials kept cutting into the security lines which literally cost me the 5 minutes that I could have made the flight. I am very diasspointed and kayak should not advertise this airline."
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: "Shortness of that flight"
Cons: "I don’t remember"
Pros: "In Frankfurt it went through Lufthansa and the extra suitcase costed me $40 more as I’ve been told on the LOT website. Paid €107 where the web page of lot said $75"
Cons: "After check in luggage I had to wait one hour to take care of the luggage price so I get my tickets. All this should have been do e before without going to different counter. Also I didn’t liked that I had to check in on the automated machine."
Pros: "the crew was great and nice. it was a really long flight and the captain explained the route clearly."
Pros: "Flight was an hour and a half delayed. Usually I love LOT, but the delay made everything worse when I just wanted to get home"
Pros: "Interior seats in Premium Economy class."
Cons: "Employees at the WAW airport. They hired new people. Young people. And they act like Gods. From shaking heads to improper comments to the passengers. Quality of sound at the airport sucks. All announcements hard to understand."
Pros: "The service, 2 exits from the plain, blanket and pillow"
Cons: "No food and entertainment"
Cons: "Very unpleasant and unhelpful staff (apart from the ones in-flight)"
Pros: "Airplane was super old, no tv, food was horrible"
Cons: "It was connected flight and was delayed had to run through the entire airport with no chance to buy a butltle of water. I'm over 60 years old and this was horrible. The flight and crew were excellent."
Cons: "was delayed for 4 hours."
Pros: "It's this application which is really make me like a stupid guy sitting in the airport"
Cons: "U have to refund the money back this is worst experience I had in my life"
Pros: "No delays nor complications"
Pros: "Plenty of leg space in economy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour"
Pros: "The actual flight was fine. The food was decent. The entertainment selection was good. The flight attendants were pleasant. We got plenty to eat and drink."
Cons: "We found out in Poland that my wife was missing an eTA number necessary for her to fly into Canada. With our previous flight delayed, the application did not process in time, and we missed our connecting flight. As a result, we were stuck in Poland for 24 hours, leading to lost sleep, added expense, and much frustration. Customer service in Poland was helpful but extremely slow. Many customers needed help and it took about an hour for each customer. We waited in line for hours. We were not charged for a new flight, but we did spend 10 exhausting hours in the airport before we had everything resolved and were able to leave and get a few hours of sleep."
Pros: "Well air conditioned plane. Prompt service"
Pros: "I liked every thing the crew was exelent"
Cons: "Dislike to crowded"
Pros: "I liked that the food was better by comparison with food served on other airlines (part of Star Alliance)."
Cons: "I think it would be nice that staff /crew addresses the passenger in both Polish and English. Most of the time they used only Polish, did not try to ask in English at all.Of course, if I asked for something in English, they can understand and respond. Also, did you always charge for wine and beer? Otherwise, I appreciated it was not as expensive as on the airport or on other airlines."
Pros: "Older aircraft had not as narrow seating and was more comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding que at Warsaw is a mess."
Pros: "Nothing did our. Just another flight."
Cons: "The seat was very worn down and hard."
Pros: "A very nice experience"
Cons: "Again, the flight from Warsaw to Chicago in Jan 6 was much better than the other one from Chicago to Warsaw in Dec 27. That flight (Dec 27) I would rate as okey. Food was poor. Instead of meat there was a piece of conjunctive tissue which was impossible to cut or chew at all. Who made a decision to feed people in limited space with beans? I wish this person would seat among them for 8 hours to enjoy it fully."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Cons: "Crowded and no food"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The seat was fine for economy"
Cons: "You should offer free wifi! Air Canada should lead the way and be above the rest!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to provide a good service."
Cons: "Wider seats and more leg room. The return trip from Ottawa to Vancouver was over $1200. I think that’s quite pricey given that any food or alcoholic beverage had to be purchased at an extra cost."
Pros: "Great staff!"
Pros: "The 777 is excellent. Service very friendly. Food is good. One leg flight is super good"
Cons: "Apparently the pilots are allowed to smoke on these long flights. In this trip it was not bad but on previous flights it was really bad"

Pros: "Great service from flight attendants. Flight was smooth once airborne"
Cons: "Delayed Flight Seats seemed very small for an Air Canada Plane"
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Pros: "The usual smooth short flight"
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized - staff should make sur only the people in the zones called are in line. Not everyone from all zones. The zones 3-5 line isn't helpful. They should change it to "boarding" and indicate only thsoe called to board should be there. Otherwise, they need separate lines for EACH Zone."
Cons: "For some reason we were forced to check our luggage (standard curry-ons) however it would completely fit to ovehead bins. Also waiting area were completely cut-off from Duty-Free shops - as soon as you passed security - no access to shopping area."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "It took two air hostesses two hours to service the entire cabin. There is a training issue. I would not fly air canada again."
Pros: "Long slow lines. Insufficient signage for US Global Entry. Too few and slow US Customs. Largest plane ever flown to Florida from Northeast."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and pilot was knowledgeable"
Cons: "My tv screen didn't have sound !"
Pros: "Normal flight, short, nothing special about it to mention."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was broken which for a 5.5 hour flight is quite difficult. The only compensation the air flight attendant offered was a glass of wine,which I couldn't drink due to being on medication. I had purchased 3 meals and 2 snacks so she could have comped one of them. This is the second time I experienced this on Air Canada with little to no appropriate service recovery. I had my iPad~an offer of free wii fii would have also been an option"
Pros: "Good boarding routine, I liked that you told people to wait their turn to board. Good entertainment options. We made it safe and sound."
Cons: "Was seated next to a crying/screaming baby for the duration of the flight (5.5 hours). Also was never offered any snacks (cookies or crackers). Landing was rougher then expected."
Pros: "- plane had more legroom than the usual - plane left and landed on time, an always welcome outcome for an AC flight - in flight movie selection was good"
Cons: "- plane was overbooked, and boarding took a while - staff only offered drink refreshments (ex. coke, coffee, etc) once, rather than the usual twice. The other time they just came by with water, which the flight attendant accidentally over-poured and spilled some on the middle passenger between me and the attendant. Good thing it was only water... - more turbulence than usual, but out of the control of the pilot"
Cons: "Audio jack for entertainment weren't working."
Cons: "Flight was delayed forced us to stay in Ottawa an extra night. Only compensation we received was a $10 meal voucher!!"
Cons: "Crew were very rude"
Pros: "Good on flight entertainment. On this flight we had a good crew and good staff. However it has been mixed in the past with air canada"
Cons: "No food or snack. Only drinks or food for purchase."
Pros: "Tv screens were bigger and alot more newer than west jets."
Cons: "I always flew with west jet and herd people say good things about air canada. So I decided to try them out. I had a 4 hour flight and I did not like the seats.. they were not comfortable at all.. the padding felt very thin and could feel the plastic she'll of the seat.. it wasn't just that plane.. i had a return flight with 1 lay over. I would go back to flying west jet. They had the same size planes and way more comfortable seats."
Cons: "Received my luggage after one day"
Cons: "Delayed flight, nearly missed connection, lost luggage, inconsiderate staff"
Cons: "There was NO complementary food for a 5 hour flight. I didn't have a credit card to purchase anything"
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Cons: "Never made connecting flight due to delays on first leg of the trip. Airline was generally apathetic to situation."
Cons: "Very slow service"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "Movies!! Newer plane too."
Pros: "Staff mice"
Cons: "Delayed , causing delays and missed apt at destination"
Cons: "It was a short flight so everything was ok"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Pros: "Had extra legroom but paid for it"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Unable to buy food or drinks on plane without a credit. I don't have one !!!"
Pros: "Direct service is nice! Clearing customs in Ottawa makes life easier."
Cons: "Buttery pretzels in both directions that are way too buttery. Crew is never overly happy to be there."
