Excellent staff, overall good flight. However, quite a few crying toddlers for 10 hours makes it less pleasant
Chairs are hard could be better. Other then that everything is ok
Connection with next flight
Meals in buissnes class was cold , breakfast regular, crew excellent
Pros: "The aircraft was barely half full."
Cons: "Delay due to fog at LHR, but this is not the fault of the airline"
Cons: "No WiFi despite paying. No Kosher food despite ordering."
Pros: "Seat was not super comfortable."
Cons: "Flight left late! Flight attendants not super attentive. Meals came late. Took forever to get off the plane! Plane never made it to the terminal but passengers were let off in the middle of the airport and placed on buses! No driver on a fully loaded bus for 10 min. Terrible! Didn’t make it on next"
Pros: "Fabulous Stuart’s."
Cons: "1h of delay .... is inadmissible for the price what we are paying for the tickets..."
Cons: "10+ hours flight. No food. No beverage. No snack. No blanket. I travel a lot and never saw a flight without service like this before. At the very minimum, snacks are reasonable. Extremely bad experience. Very disappointed with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "One of the flight attendance made hand gestures indicating eating when I asked him to repeat the dinner choices. That was very rude."
Pros: "On the airline website the price of the ticket was $3000 and I bought it for $750 on Kayak, I expected delays, cancellations or something to go wrong and justify that price drop. Nothing of that sort happened! It was a comfortable and on time trip with no problems!"
Pros: "Food was bearable"
Cons: "Delayed, the gate was changed 3 times."
Pros: "The food and drink were the only two enjoyable moments of this flight."
Cons: "The crew in Cluj airport could not care less about getting the plane boarded and departed on time. For 20 minutes crew stood around in the airport talking to each other and using their cellphones. Finally the transport bus was loaded only to have the bus driver get out, and talk to another employee while simultaneously using his phone. No information was given for the delay and the plane was boarded at time of departure. This careless and unbothered attitude resulted in a missed connecting flight for my partner and I. We were completely unassisted by crew on the plane and ended up having to wait 24hours for our next flight home. Absolutely disgusted by the service provided from Cluj to Munich. I would seriously consider another airline before booking again with Lufthansa for this route."
Pros: "Very good flight and crew."
Cons: "It was a good flight."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Merci pour gentillesse"
Pros: "This flight is usually fully booked but there happened to be an empty seat next to mine which was much appreciated"
Pros: "Flight left on time and as I was traveling alone I was upgraded to upper economy, which is a fantastic experience. Very smooth and stable flight. One of the best landing I even experienced. The flight inbound and outbound were on time both ways. Congratulations Lufthansa: I will definitely use this airline again."
Pros: "Getting off the plane in the snow is ridiculous. Lufthansa needs to use the jetways."
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Cons: "Plane closed the gate two hours before departing. Should have waited for passengers delayed by weather and lack of a sufficient ground crew."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Cons: "Very weird flight attendant. Seemed unexperienced and stressed out. Bad vibe from the crew in general."
Pros: "Munich airport on other hand. We got to the airport several hours in advanced. Everything from getting a boarding pass to checking and weighing in your own bag was electronically. Long lines and majority of the systems were not working. After trying several machines and being directed into 3 different lines I finally was able to check my bag in. I had to leave my other family members who were flying with me as they were in another line. At the machine to check my bag in , a airport worker ran up to my bag and slammed it onto the ground as well as ripped off my luggage tags. My bag was upright on the conveyer belt instead of on its side , but how rude the airport workers are, is rediculous. After I asked why she did that she just began ordering me around to move my bag after I got my bag through the machine I asked to speak to a manager as the airport worker was extremely rude and unprofessional. No one would give me the time of day and the same airport working out her hand in my face saying repeatedly goodbye in German. I've never experienced anything like this in my entire life. Trying to get through security a few travelers on a thin patience level started pushing people in line trying to by pass others it was so very chaotic workers had to go in between. Those travelers were complaining, because disabled travelers had a separate line that was faster. The worst airport experience I've ever had. Once on the plane everyone was pleasant. Crew was very helpful and always willing to assists"
Cons: "There was a child on the plane that was screaming and crying on and off for several hours. The parents didn't do anything to keep the child calm. Before we got to Chicago eveyone had to be seatbelt s before landing and the flight attendant asked eveyone to buckle up. The mother of the baby wouldn't listen and began yelling at flight crew. I think the flight crew did a great job, the passenger and child were very disruptive making the flight at times very uncomfortable. I wouldn't suggest infants or toddlers flying for such long trips. No one wants to listen to a child screaming at the top of their lungs."
Pros: "Attendants were impressive. kind and so willing to serve."
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible. Those movies were not the best selection but the poorest selection as the cheapest probably."
Pros: "Drinks and great stewardesses"
Cons: "No phone charger."
Cons: "Was delayed in a connection and missed flight. No offer or help provided to get me and children on another flight without charging me ~$9000 for another flight. Paid out of pocket for another airline. Cannot believe the extortion and lack of service provided!"
Pros: "Flight was late landing then delayed on the ground at EWR"
Pros: "Ease of making connecting flight to Budapest"
Cons: "Was an on time departure. Quick. Uneventful. We did have to board a bus when we landed, which took a long time."
Pros: "The 747-8 is a nice new plane. The skinny Economy class seats are surprisingly comfortable. The entertainment system is good; I liked getting the feed from the forward-facing camera."
Cons: "Since last I flew with them, Lufthansa has added annoying charges like so many other airlines (but not usually full-service international airlines). Advance seat reservation was $30 per leg and seat. (I paid only for the overnight eastbound flight; on the return I found enough seats available by online check-in just after it opened.) One overweight bag was $100. Considering these charges, Singapore Airlines is the better choice for FRA-JFK. Minor quibbles with the entertainment system: * Front-facing camera points very low. Would be nice to see other planes during taxi (not just their wheels). * New "live map" during flight added useless gimmicks (view of earth from space), removed data (altitude, speed, outside temperature)."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment part: movies are good, crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "I didnt like the boarding process bacause it wasnt in order, also airplane crew started feeding passangers in 3 hours!!! after we took off. I started thinking that it is not included in my ticket!"
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent!"
Pros: "Lufthansa - The best."
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent snack. Excellent service."
Cons: "Seat poor, small, and not a first class quality. No premium check in. Lounge terrible. No pre board."
Pros: "Service confort timimg"
Pros: "I appreciate the taxi, in Munich airport, to my next connection."
Cons: "I disliked the late departure."
Pros: "Wonderful flight, way more comfortable but in the other economy class I've been on"
Cons: "Can they turn the heat up. So cold!"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable, and I had plenty of space, because I was sitting near to the exit door. The service and the crew were just great. I love traveling with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Exceptional service and quality. Flew economy but treated like first class. If I travel abroad again Lufthansa would be my number one choice."
Pros: "Crew was great, movies we good. Plane was nice, drinks were readily available. After our missed connection the employee that got us our hotel was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Even if everything was on time we would have had a very hard time making our connection to Austin after customs and security in Chicago. The tickets never should have been sold that way."
Pros: "Lots of carry on space"
Cons: "I expect cabin crew to assist me with my luggage. They were telling me to do it myself"
I didn’t use Entertainment so, no comments on it. Staff was courteous, efficient and helpful. Wines (I also tried Polish White wine) were really good, so also the food. The accessories provided were good (a goodnight chocolate would have enriched the experience 😀) Originally flight reached before time but we didn’t understand why it was sidelined for almost half an hour and also, luggage was delivered quite late (20-25 minutes) and that too after changing belt! That need not be LOT’s fault! Overall, I would certainly like to travel again with LOT, worth recommending!
Pros: "Everything is good"
Pros: "Very good, professional and kind crew. The airline did not submit my request for vegetarian food but one of the crew went out of her way to create an "a la carte" dinner from the first class food."
Cons: "The plane does not have a gate at the Tom Bradley terminal and we had to be bused in. That was too much delay. On top of that, the airline lost one of our luggage. Thank god for insurance!"
Pros: "Short flight everything worked out."
Cons: "Duty free choice onboard"
Pros: "The aircraft and crew were professional and courteous. The food was ok."
Cons: "1st, neither seat that I selected when checking in were given to me. 2nd both aircraft took off late for no apparent reason. 3rd When waiting to board in Warsaw, I was almost bitten by a large pit pull that a passenger was bringing into the cabin as a comfort animal. When I and several other passengers question the desk at the gate about the bringing a large vicious dog into the plane, we were told they were to busy to deal with us even though they were just standing there doing nothing. I have never seen such rudeness towards passengers as I did at that gate. I will take a ship across the Atlantic before I go through Warclaw again."
Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "Free food"
Pros: "Seat was broken and did not recline. It was uncomfortable..."
Cons: "USB and power outlet were unable to charge my kindle.... what is the purpose of these if they dont work? Fix them please!"
Pros: "The crew were great!"
Cons: "The coffee was pretty bland."
Cons: "Checked in luggage did not arrive. Arrived on Thursday was told to wait till delivery on Monday. Is it normal for LOT customers to wait for they luggage for 4 days? Disappointed"
Cons: "Flight delays, late boarding, better service"
Cons: "Seat layout"
Pros: "Funny english"
Cons: "1h 10' delayed bording"
Cons: "The boarding and flight were late"
Pros: "Boarding went pretty smoothly and quickly"
Cons: "The staff seems to be lacking the enthusiasm and warmth towards the passengers."
Pros: "Plane was on time _both to and from Warsaw _ crew was friendly and gate agent on out bound got me changed from a window to an aisle ( my preference)"
Cons: "Small commuter jet_ had to use bus for boarding and walk lots of steps _ hard for me I have artificial metal knee. Food was only coffee &cookie _ had to pay for a coke."
Pros: "The Dreamliner is shiny new and comfortable. Good authentic Polish food. Great variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "On-time performance was so-so, take-off was delayed ~1hr because of connections, had to wait on the runway at the destination airport, had to wait an eternity for my bag. Whatever genius who designed the in-flight entertainment controls should be punched in the face. The on-screen buttons are so easily pushed by passengers making their way to and from the aisle that passenger assistance and reading lights always go off on their own throughout the aircraft."
Pros: "The airplane is 737 dream liner Bombardier and is well ventilated and operated smoothly. Looks very new. Flight staff are excellent."
Cons: "The layout of the airport is not conducive to walking around before boarding. Could not use the airport lounge as a result."
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...."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "This is about as budget as you can get. Entertainment systems didn’t work, drinks were warm. Food was mediocre. Bathroom doors didn’t work, and the toilet seat wouldn’t stay up while using it! Yuck! Had to shuttle EVERYWHERE between flights, before and after. Crew was not attentive, and not so friendly either. Only good note was the young lady who checked our bags in Warsaw and helped get our seats together (after the airline messed the seat assignment up in the first place). Ugh. Worst airline I’ve been on."
Pros: "It was delayed, making me late for the connecting flight"
Cons: "Long lines, rude customer service"
Cons: "The service was terrible. The flight went AOG, but not until midnight. We all sat around with barely any info all night long. Finally at 11:30pm they put out some water and said sandwiches but I did not see any. LOT Polish service was VERY disappointing. I cancelled my flight all together on them."
Pros: "The crew was polite and boarded quite on time The airplane was clean We landed early"
Cons: "Since this was not a low cost flight and not a cheap ticket, I did not understand why there was no food served and no beverages a part of the basic (water/tea/coffee) without additional pay. I did not get value for the money I paid. The seating was very crowded."
Pros: "Good price. The in-flight meal was hot and delicious!"
Pros: "Good selection of in-flight entertainment, relatively clean plane."
Cons: "Boarding at WAW was a joke - very disorganized and cramped gate area. Simple remedy is to give passengers guidance on where to line up for their assigned zone prior to boarding. No individual air ventilation - got hot and uncomfortable at times. Cramped economy seats - and if passenger in front of you fully reclines - your TV screen is almost in your lap. Hot meal included very rubbery chicken - obviously either overcooked or nuked too much. Attendants seemed indifferent or annoyed if you asked for individual attention outside of their normal rounds of serving drinks/etc (all I wanted was a Coke). I was essentially told to go to the back of the cabin and get my own drink... Upon arrival - de-planing took an eternity. We had a large group of teen band members traveling - who had scattered their instruments in overheads all around the plane. So anyone that was behind them had to wait until they figured out where all their stuff was stowed. OK - not necessarily LOT's fault - but again - a little thought and some hand's on guidance by the crew would have made it easier for the other passengers to get off the plane quicker after a 9 1/2 hour flight..."
Pros: "My flight was pretty comfortable. I had heard so many negative things about LOT Airlines, but I loved the cabin crew who were extremely courteous, and the food served was pretty good (dinner and breakfast since it was an overnight flight). The entertainment was pretty good as well; they even had some Oscar nominations like Dunkirk and Shape of Water available to watch. Overall, I was very pleased with my flight experience."
Cons: "The only thing that I was not a fan of, but which didn't bother me that much/didn't affect me that much, was that we departed from JFK in NYC *an hour late* because we boarded so late. For some people, this caused an issue with their connection in Warsaw, but for me, I luckily had a four hour layover. Still, an hour is pretty bad in terms of departure."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was great"
Cons: "All of my bags got left behind. We landed over 18h ago and there is still no information about them"
Pros: "Helpful Crew"
Cons: "Messed up security clearance arrangement. Total confusion about secondary clearance requirement, only informed at boarding at gate that a lot of travelers needed secondary clearance. No objections to secondary clearance, but procedure a joke. Machine was half way down the terminal. Half hour wait, and you could have left your carry on with somebody else, get cleared by machine, pick up your bag again and get on board."
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)"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Getting off at the end"
Cons: "Food, seats, no entertainment the worse business class in the industry. Boarding was also a mess. Absolutely no redeeming features."
Pros: "The flight was fantastic! LOT is ROCK! Thanks much!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No vegetarian option unless ordered before the flight."
Cons: "There was a delay on their first flight and then the same LOT company does not wait for our connection. After that we are send for one night at a crappy 1 star hotel in Warshaw."
Cons: "My bag didn't arrive in Warsaw. I asked the LOT representative at JFK to verify that my bag was on the flight between NYC and Warsaw. She said that it was, but it wasn't there when I arrived"
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "Delay for no reason and extra 4 hour layover in warsaw"
Cons: "The flight was late 1.5 hours missed connecting flight, spent all night at airport waiting for next plane,"
Pros: "boarding hour late all other ok."
Cons: "everything ok"
Pros: "Most of the crew was very pleasant and helpful. Food was decent, but much better on the return trip out of Poland. Thank YOU."
Cons: "The toilet lids need to be fixed so that they don't keep hitting you in the back. They do not stay up. Other passengers were talking about the same thing."
Cons: "the flight was 2 hours delay and messed up all the arrangements we have to be picked up also the whole plans needed to be changed and inconvenient for the person supposed to pick us up from airport"
Pros: "How quickly I get Lviv from Warsaw! Thank you"
Pros: "I would not give 1 star. 0 if possible!"
Cons: "Because of loosing our connecting flight in Warsaw (due to weather...I think, it was never explain to us why our first flight had a 3 hour delay), the boarding staff was very helpful finding us a different route. Well the flight from Warsaw to Berlin, operated by LOT was horrible! No snacks no drinks, not even water on a 2hour flight! Shame on you! I had my wedding gown with me and I asked one of the crew members to put it in one of the closets design for this. And in a broken English she told me 'ya there is a problem' and she showed me the closet, it was full with the crew luggage :( We ended up laying the gown on one seat that was empty! When we arrived at our destination and picked up our luggage we noticed that they broke one of the wheels. Overall very ugly experience with LOT!!!"
Cons: "I had to pay 70 Euros for luggage one way, while there was no information that my ticket does not include luggage. Actually, economic tickets (as mine) should have allowed for trips in Europe a checked in luggage according to the company website. I do not find any information regarding how I can pay for my luggage in advance, and not at the airport."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable"
Cons: "Long delay for departure"
Cons: "Our tickets were very expensive compared to other airlines and had to buy food and drinks."
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."
