I fly often to Poland and so far I used WizzAir & Ryanair, two ultra low cost airlines. This time, to be able to fly in the evening I chose LOT. While it was more expensive and a one-way ticket is way more expensive than a roundtrip it came with more legroom, choosable seat and it was nice that the...

Two flight segments today with LOT. The first this morning from Paris to Warsaw was the absolute worse check in experience. The agent was rude, my ticket allowed for two bags but wanted me to pay for the second but could not tell me how much. Just that the price was very high. His having a bad day was somehow...

Really, really slow check-in at the ticket counter. Flight was on time. Our luggage didn't make our connecting flight. Our inbound flight was not late. Don't know why the baggage didn't make it. To their credit, LOT delivered our bags to us roughly 12 hours later.

Flew round trip to Munich in Business class. Late night flight from Ord. Boarding was about an hour late, then we waited for another hour to take off. The flight itself was very comfortable. Service was very good as well. Business class has lay flat seats and a small amenities kit. The TV is ok, but the lay flat seats...

I flew from Prague to Seoul via Warsaw. Flight Prague to Warsaw was uneventful. Free water, coffee and tea with a small chocolate bar. Flight Warsaw to Seoul: Food ok, edible, albeit small portions. Dry and robotic service. No smile. Entertainment mainly Polish movies or old movies. Seats worn out and uncomfortable. Flight Seoul to Warsaw: Again dry and robotic...

Flied with LOT several times and each time it's a disaster. Your flight can be delayed without any explanations and LOT employees won't be able to provide you any information about what is the plan if you'll be late for your transfer to another LOT flight. I was lucky and my LOT flight from Warsaw to St. Pete was also...

The aircraft was B737-400 and because i was seated in the exit row, the legroom was absolutely more than great. The seats were NEW and very comfortable! The crew was friendly and the food(free), drinks(free) were also good. Surely reccomend!

Pretty good service and meals, but you have to pay extra for alcoholic beverages (fair price actually). Seats in Dreamliner very tight, selection of movies pretty old.

I was looking for the best option to travel in Italy for the Eastern holiday and I was desperate.. No decent connections were available or if they were , the prices were incredibly high. Finally I found a return flight with LOT. It was my best flight ever to go back home even if it was not direct. The service...
