Business class is the worst business class I have ever seen. It’s worse than some American Airlines domestic coach class seats.
Never made it on Thai plane due to all the other planes being late
Pro: "my wife was flying this plane from Zagreb to Split. my wife is late for the last ferry 20.30 from Split to Hvar due to the plane delay and so unplanned should stay at the hotel in split till tomorrow morning. And they'll be 3 hours late for work in the morning."
Pro: "The flight itself was inoffensive."
Contra: "I was unable to select the 'fare' with a checked bag, so was planning to pay at the counter. I think the site for the airline is buggy, as it was also an ordeal by trial-and-error to try to check in online. I also could not elect to check a bag during the on line check in process, which I know is sometimes an option. When I arrived at the airport, the check in was a mess (ton of people, everyone was taking forever at the counter) and when I FINALLY arrived at the counter, I was informed that I needed to take a handwritten receipt from the check in counter, go up a floor and wind through a few corridors to find some travel agent (?) desk to pay 40 Euros for my checked bag. Which actually was 48 Euros because I needed to use a card, and was not paying by cash. After I managed to find the desk where I needed to pay, I had to wind my way back downstairs and muscle my way back into the line I had already waited in to finish the check in process. When we arrived in Split, 25% of the flight was missing their bags, which included a member of the party I was traveling with. It took an extra 30 minutes at the airport to file a missing bag claim, and another 38 hours for the bag to finally arrive. Not a great way to spend the few days we had in Split."
Contra: "making a stop in Dubrovnik and leaving the plane just so they can refuel it a nightmare. Layover in Zagreb on the way to Athens was really long On the way back from ATH to SPU, a depay of 2,5 hours happened..."
Pro: "The plane left on time."
Contra: "The type of plane was very old, a de Havilland with propellers, extremely noisy and small."
Contra: "My bag did not arrive with me and I was told it was because I did not allow enough time for my bag to get from the plane in Split. This had nothing to do with me but rather their scheduling. They really need to allow more time between connecting flights for this and for getting thru passport check"
Contra: "My luggage was lost"
Pro: "Crew welcoming and friendly. Seats comfortable"
Contra: "Was not aware I had to pay extra for the suitcase I checked."
Pro: "Beautiful views. Friendly staff"
Pro: "Comfortable plane, very friendly crew, good snacks"
Contra: "They lost our luggage and still haven’t returned it, after 2 days of no communication we found out that they hopefully will return it to us on wed. The 8th and we leave the 10th....."
Pro: "The price was reasonable"
Contra: "But did not include the baggage charge. We were required to go upstairs and find the AER desk, which was difficult to find. Then stood in line while one person, who was very slow, was responsible for helping 10 people. The process was very slow. If you paid cash the cost was 40 per bag plus 8 for use of a credit card. Don't understand why the baggage fee can't be paid at the check-in counter. Will not fly CRO again."
Contra: "Just water served."
Pro: "The flight crew were good and trip smooth."
Contra: "They lost our luggage and the ground staff were really unhelpful. They need to learn customer service."
Contra: "Too few ticket agents No idea where ticket counter would be 40 euros per checked bag plus 8 euros for using charge card Late boarding Late takeoff"
Pro: "Attention service smiles"
Pro: "Check in was easy and on time. Bus was used to take passengers to plane, but it was short quick ride.Flight too short for any real food or entertainment, but they served bottled water."
Contra: "Food, boarding process"
Contra: "They had a cancelled flight try to make me take a bus to my final destination. So finally they booked us a flight next day in evening we didn’t received any vouchers or hotel room from the airline and nobody had a answer on why was flight cancelled."
Pro: "Very professional crew. Loved particular type of snacks served on small, red napkins - those stylish details make a difference!"
Pro: "They delayed the departure so people could make the connection. I'd have been happy if it was me!"
Pro: "Great flight, quick, no issues."
Pro: "On time and courteous staff. Easy rental car drop off at Zadar. Airport easy to navigate."
Pro: "Great service. Totally on time."
Contra: "The mishandling of my luggage was disappointing , I basically watched Being tossed to the ground from about 12ft high"
Contra: "Check in not clear. Had to be bussed to the plane. First bus left right on time. Second bus did not leave for another 20-30 minutes delaying our flight."
Contra: "Our flight from Venice to Dubrovnik was delayed by two hours. During that time, no updates were given to the passengers waiting, the airport monitors continued to show the original departure time. Eventually the monitors showed a later departure time (which we still didn't make), but continued to show the same arrival time at the other end. If taken literally, it implied flying at the speed of light. I understand that flights can be delayed, I just want good communication about the status, which was not given."
Contra: "Seven hours late. For an hour flight."
Pro: "Ticket price included baggage"
Pro: "Crew was friendly and it was a nice touch to have a simple, but tasty breakfast provided"
Contra: "Minor issues were having to get a bus to the old airport to board the plane. Arrival in London delayed due to ATC - not Croatia's fault"
Pro: "I was pleased that the crew was willing to delay the flight so passengers from an incoming flight could get to their destination."
Pro: "Customer service escorted us through customs to ensure that we caught our connection."
Contra: "The first leg of iur flight was delayed."
Contra: "Small space per person"
Pro: "Good service"
Contra: "Insufficient leg room. Flight was late."
Pro: "Good selection of local croatian snacks. We had cheese with olives and olive crackers. Better than the generic sandwiches offered by major european carriers. Crew was friendly and appeared interested and motivated. Pilot kept us informed of current progress."
Contra: "Seats were firm. Limited recline and could be uncomfortable for anything more than 3 hours."
Contra: "The extra time involved at Istanbul and Chicago airports to seperately check in my Kindle."
Pro: "Compared to SAS flight I like the fact that they offer on every flight decent drink and snack. Flight attendants are extremely nice. By the way there were newspapers too. Everything one can buy for several euros, so it is not about money it is more about how to cut the boring time when you cannot move."
Contra: "Liked everything"
Contra: "Flight was delayed for unknown reasons. Nobody inform passengers about delay."
Pro: "Very fast service for drinks."
Contra: "Small plane and no way to change seats."
Pro: "Another short flight. Seemed to go well."
Pro: "Once we got off the ground, things were fine. We were quickly given meal vouchers when the gate agent showed up finally--some time well after our scheduled departure time."
Contra: "Sat at the gate with a small child until well after departure. No news. No gate agent. Finally we were told that there was a delay of two and a half hours."
Contra: "Needed wheelchair assist. Once we were dropped off at the gate to wait for the slight to Split, the person at the gate said that there was no other person who could come, was forced to walk the rest of the way. This was different from all other times we've needed a wheelchair assist where a person came when it was time to go from the boarding area to the vehicle."
Contra: "The food vouchers were a nice gesture but how about a travel voucher?"
flight was 1 hour late. from the gate to the airplane we had to take a bus. boarding in a disorganized
Pro: "The crew was really great, seats like in any Airbus (I guess better then Boeing)"
Contra: "Very old movies as entertainment."
Pro: "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."
Contra: "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!"
Contra: "The food was very poor, the staff hardly offer any liquids through out the flight."
Pro: "The aircraft and crew were professional and courteous. The food was ok."
Contra: "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."
Pro: "The Crew"
Contra: "Free food"
Pro: "Friendly crew, food was actually better on this flight than the flight from Toronto to Warsaw"
Contra: "On the flight I had from Toronto to warsaw the entertainment did not work. Honestly it should he inspected before take off and if nothing could be done then something to compensate"
Contra: "It would’ve helped to land at the airport for which we booked the ticket. Landing 2 hours away didn’t help and the airline did not provide any compensation"
Contra: "Tight seat places. No food unless paid for."
Pro: "The flight Sofia - Warsaw was more than 1 hr late. The crew never apologized. Was arrogant and unhelpful when we asked for gate information to our Warsaw-Stockholm connection, which we barely made. The Warsaw-Stockholm flight, operated by Nordica was the exact opposite experience. Crew was awesome!"
Contra: "Train LOT staff how to not embarrass themselves and their company w arrogance and ignorance."
Pro: "How quickly they boarded the flight"
Contra: "Not having flight delays"
Pro: "the crew was very good, the seat could be a bit bigger in economy class"
Contra: "Very poor English for rhe crew. Not all of us speak Polish. The crew was rude."
Pro: "Free Services very good"
Contra: "It is hard to believe that embarking/disembarking a plane from an European capital to another is still done by bus in the year 2019. Moreover the security check in Warsaw was painfully slow and I almost missed my conection to Toronto."
Pro: "LOT dictionary doesn't have the word: on-time,"
Pro: "It had some interesting movies and food could been great if given two meals. Was able to get more candies and drinks."
Contra: "Only one meal to get and could been more variety of movies like in Spanish and Russian and Polish. More music to listen to."
Pro: "Very comfortable seats, very friendly and polite crew"
Pro: "Flight attendants were very kind and pleasant. Meal service and entertainment were more substantial than expected."
Contra: "Extreme delay supposedly as a result of a lightning strike to the plane. About 9 hours delay and a missed connection. The only compensation given for this dealy was a voucher for a 20 Euro meal at the airport restaurant of my choice. I know planes get hit by lightning on average of once a year, but it typically does not take 3 to 4 hours to inspect and confirm the safety of the plane's electrical system. But perhaps better safe than sorrry!"
Contra: "We had for different flights with LOT airlines and all of them were delayed. No updates were given at the gate and some announcements were only in Polish. Landing in Warsaw we had to circle around for a while because the airport was closed due to air parade."
Contra: "Every time Lot plane delayed!!!"
Contra: "The plane was having a 25 minutes delay before leaving. It will be nice to offer some chips also as a curtesy"
Contra: "Flight cancelled with poor communication."
Pro: "Not much."
Contra: "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."
Pro: "Normal in-flight service but nothing special."
Contra: "Small plane."
Contra: "Excellent service"
Pro: "The plain was delayed more than three hours"
Pro: "Service, personal space. New aircraft."
Contra: "Wifi would be good"
Pro: "most everything was fine especially since I had a short connection in Warsaw but they made me pay 20 euro in Bucharest, ROMANIA for my piece of checked baggage (it was less than 23 kg) & according to my itinerary it should have been free so in a sense I feel cheated & robbed & it does not leave a good taste in my mouth about using you or them in the future (I have the receipt for 20 euro & would like to have that money refunded) Steve Young"

Pro: "Crew was great."
Contra: "No on-board entertainment."
Pro: "I flew the dreamliner."
Contra: "Very small legspace. Indifferent, careless crew. No vegetarian or any other food options. I tried to arrange it before the flight. Didn't work. On board they didn't even try to accommodate the needs. E.g. give extra salad...."
Contra: "Shitty service on board"
Contra: "old aircraft enterrainment system didnt work food tray broken in many seats"
Pro: "Nothing (except the safe landing)"
Contra: "The boarding process was a nightmare. The plane was small and cramped. Business class seats were narrower and more uncomfortable than most coach seats. Crew was pleasant and helpful but this route is just awful. Avoid if at all possible."
Contra: "I paid $ 55 extra for my seat # 20G.Company changed aircraft(it was Boeing 777-200).I did't get what i paid for. They gave me seat #30G(regular).Do i have a chance to get my money back?"
Pro: "the flight and service was decent"
Contra: "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."
Pro: "Easy long travel very comfortable"
Pro: "Ground crew did a good job rescheduling and arranging hotel"
Contra: "The flight was cancelled"
Contra: "NYC to Warsaw, the flight was 4 hours late no voucher for food. some got it some not. i lost the flight from Warsaw to Bucharest they put me on flight from Warsaw to Vienna that flight was late as well i got to Vienna and i ran to get the flight to Bucharest. i was very tired"
Contra: "Delayed one hour. This should not happen especially for an international flight"
Pro: "Smooth and easy boarding and deplaning"
Contra: "Charge for a glass of wine but not soft drinks which just about cost the same"
Contra: "The flight and the food All complete horror"
Pro: "Friendly staff, clean airplane, electrical sockets available."
Contra: "Flight was delayed. No efforts to ensure transit passengers are given priority. Spent hours waiting for the connecting flight."
Pro: "Cabin crew were at least apologetic after the delays and shambolic boarding process (see below)."
Contra: "Chaotic flight that was delayed due to overbooking and the failure to deal with it in any competent way. An apparently overbooked flight led to a cascade of errors - there seemed to be a total breakdown in communication between the gate/services team and the ground crew, etc. as to where the extra passengers came from and what could be done with them. They even admitted to their being many misunderstandings among the LOT staff themselves as they struggled to rectify the situation. The worst outcome was that we got trapped in the bus, right outside the plane, for 30 minutes. They had sent us to board while back at the gate they were still arguing over who should actually be on the plane. During this time there was no sign of the cabin crew at all. After 10 minutes or so the driver left to go and have a chat with some of the ground ops team and we were left on our own as the windows steamed up and small children started to cry. The whole thing was an appalling exercise in miscommunication - both between staff themselves and between staff and passengers."
Contra: "Boarding started at least half an hour late."
