Plane delayed and we missed our connecting flight.
Our flight to Frankfurt arrived late, and the flight to Slovenia left early so we missed the connection. We waited for over 6 hours and still only have a slight chance of making the flight the next day at 9am because we have standby tickets.
The Lufthansa flights were great, but the booking process was horrible. They (Lufthansa) rescheduled my flight booking (with no explanation as to why), The new itinerary did not allow a long enough layover. So when the first leg was late I missed my next flight. They automatically rescheduled it, but tried to send me to a different destination. Told me that was OK because it was not far away. I had to insist on the original destination. The Lufthansa online check in process was terrible to navigate Your Priceline web site was unable to find my reservation when I clicked on "My tours". When I called for help, she found my reservation, but told me there was no way to add it to "My tours". What use is signing up for an account if it doesn't work?
Pro: "Flight was good. The problem was the ticket purchased from Kayak was not as stated. Because there was a layover in Amsterdam, I was not able to check my bag all the way through to USA. AND I had to visit 5 counters to check bag, pay for bag at different counter and 3 other counters!"
Contra: "It would have been better if the ticket I purchased was the one that I selected. It was not as advertised. I searched for ticket that was translatlantic with one checked bag. BUT kayak booked an ECONOMY LIGHT fare that required payment. It was not as advertised and a total head ache for check in."
Pro: "Seat was comfortable and the food was decent."
Pro: "Crew was super professional and friendly !"
Contra: "Little to no overhead cabin room to stow by my bag so had to place under my feet."
Pro: "Seat super comfortable!"
Contra: "Food service could've been better"
Contra: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Pro: "Got an amazing pastry as a snack with tea, it was huge and really tasty!"
Contra: "Not much to say."
Pro: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."
Contra: "Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though."
Contra: "Guy beside me was always sitting to his friends."
Pro: "Great staff and food"
Contra: "Comfort was not great and no entertainment options whatsoever"
Pro: "Airbus seats, n/a considering short flight"
Contra: "Some staff ignored us in our isle"
Pro: "Online check in, easy to board. Flight was on time."
Contra: "I wish there was a vegan option for the food/snack onboard."
Pro: "Very roomy seats, friendly attendants. Nice sunset. My sister liked the 'tour' of the airport on taxiing to the gate. I found it frustrating. The plane was about 30 minutes late which was nice because it took a while to get off our Munich flight, find our new gate and we ended up nearly running to the gate."
Contra: "I, again, didn't like walking down 3 flights of stairs, getting a crowded bus to take us to the plane. We are used to using a jetway to the plane. I realize that European airports are busier than American airports though."
Pro: "Although the flight to Frankfurt was delayed for more than an hour they made special arrangements to get on time to the next flight."
Pro: "Was a very smooth trip."
Contra: "The seat rows were so crammed together, you could hardly get out of your row."
Contra: "I have no flight to connect to."
Contra: "45min to 1 hour is barely enough to switch the plane in Frankfurt. Distances between gates are very significant and if you are not running there is a possibility you not going to make your connecting flight. Information how to get to the Z gates are not clear and it really takes a long time with all passport check points and security to pass through."
Contra: "Seats way too small and tight. Flight delayed over and over."
Pro: "The amenities, even in Economy, were excellent. Plenty of good food and drink...included. On time departure/arrival."
Contra: "Our original seats, which we pre-selected for a $45 per seat fee, were changed, without notifying us. Fortunately, I discovered this and was able to get similar seats by calling customer service. I was told we qualified for at least a partial refund..we'll see if this happens."
Pro: "Everything except that cookie!"
Contra: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pro: "Again the flight wasn't full so had plenty of room."
Contra: "The sandwich they offered was pretty bland."
Pro: "Friendly flight attendants, good wine, good entertainment (which I actually don't watch), beautiful airplane, A 340, especially the downstairs restrooms."
Contra: "Very uncomfortable seats, minimal leg room, mediocre food."
Pro: "You guys did a great job. I've never seen boarding go so smooth, The self-serve boarding gate was better than any human."
Pro: "Efficient boarding"
Contra: "Food was poor, dried up and not enough for 10 hours flight. You did have the option to buy more."
Pro: "Very nice staff, lovely meal with wine and beer included. Overall experience very nice!"
Contra: "We were late about 30 minutes at boarding. Late to connecting flight but didn't miss it!"
Pro: "Clean, polite, new, MUC is a sparkling modern airport. Crew looked snazzy and there were plenty of downstairs bathrooms. On flight movies are great as were audio books on board,"
Pro: "Ordered Asian vegetarian meal, which was excellent. They even hadMetal utensils, which I don't think I've seen since the 80s. Also had a Seat open next to me, which is unusual.Very orderly and comfortable flight, with a surprising amount of legroom."
Pro: "Updates form Kayak were much better than any info from Lufthansa"
Contra: "Overbooked. Offering € 250 to stay. Serious delay"
Contra: "The crew didn't seem quite ready for offering refreshments, and I had to go and ask for water several times. The snacks weren't very ubstantial, and having a good 4-5 hours in between meals was hard for me as I had been traveling for a long time already."
Contra: "old model aircraft"
Pro: "The food, the crew, the cleanness"
Pro: "Overall a pretty good flight."
Contra: "The in-flight wasn't working, so no movies on a nine hour flight."
Pro: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job, even with a gate change."
Pro: "30 minutes late boarding; food quite simple; entertainmentsystem very faulty"
Pro: "Good Flight. Left a little late but arrived a little early. Was surprised to get a cookie and free coffee, tea or water. Have come to expect to pay for even this little bit of refreshment - nice surprise!"
Contra: "Frankfurt Airport - Awfully long walk. We took a bus between the airplane and the airport when arriving and departing from FRA, with a long walk between drop-off and boarding spots. I had to wonder if the walk across the tarmac between the 2 airplanes would have been shorter than the walk in the airport?"
Pro: "The service and flight was smooth."
Contra: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."
Pro: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Contra: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."
Contra: "There was no entertainment service on the flught"
Contra: "On the way to Amsterdam from Chicago Seat 27C, the entertainment consul was completely broken. NO VIDEO NO MUSIC."
Pro: "Everything worked without drama or misstep."
Contra: "The bus from the terminal to the plane was odd, but worked out fine in the end."
Pro: "Everything else was fine."
Contra: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
Pro: "i am glad that i got there safely and ahead of time"
Contra: "it was NOT a lufthansa flight, which is what i was expecting and wanted. it was a united flight . i wanted to fly lufthansa because it is a higher quality experience than united, but for some reason after i bought the ticket i learned that united was operating the flight for lufthansa"
Pro: "The ice cream dessert"
Contra: "Old fashioned entertainment systems where you can't choose when you want to watch something you have to start watching at the same time as everyone. Flight advertised as Lufthansa was United both ways, there is a big difference between the service in both. United makes you pay to choose your seat like a budget carrier so everyone is angry about the seat they're in. Won't be flying them again if possible!"
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
Pro: "The crew was kind, the flight was on time and alll in all was just as expected."
Pro: "Seat was very comfortable. Crew was great."

Pro: "The crew was great."
Contra: "My seat would not recline at all"
Pro: "Every thing"

Pro: "Friendly crew with a wide range of entertainment options"
Contra: "Smoother boarding. Was great once on board."
Pro: "Seat ok typical. Non busy flight lots of room"
Contra: "Food was poor"
Pro: "Absolutely nothing. Despite booking business class flights 3 months before departure date because we had to attend a very important wedding. Swiss Airlines overbooked the flight but didn’t warn us in advance. This meant my husband was forced to pay over 8 thousand Euros to charter a small private je"
Contra: "So That we could attend the wedding early the next morning in Oldenburg. They then had the audacity to void our return flights. Luckily I spoke with a lovely lady at Lufthansa, explained the situation and she re-instated return flights for an admin fee. Will never ever use Swiss Airlines again."
Contra: "Missed the flight from Houston to Fankfurt and the airline canceled the whole round trip. I did not know I had to call the airline to let them know not the cancel my trip. I would've appreciated a notice of that."
Pro: "Very nice staff on board and timely departure"
Contra: "Cold during the flight"
Pro: "Seat size was decent, not like us airlines, there’s actually space for you knees."
Contra: "Passengers should be notified of the process of changing airplanes at Vienna. What a nightmare. We were scheduled for 50 minutes between flights. Not really enough. If we were aware of what was required it may have helped, however the distance we had to walk was rather extreme."
Contra: "They were delayed on every one of my flights - missed connecting flight and had to be booked on a new flight which got in a midnight. Terrible!!"
Contra: "I had a weelchair and nobody assist me in Viene in Austria"
Pro: "Crew was wonderful and spoke English They brought drinks. Seats were very nice and plane seemed new and very clean They handed out card decks to the kids."
Contra: "As a gluten free person dinner delicious but after 5-6 next hours for breakfast I got few small slices of melon... like really?? This will not feed anyone! For next time I know that I have to bring my own food.. so bad! While servis time we ordered whisky with cola and after one hour we went to ask for one more cause we wanted and CA told us they dont serve anymore whisky only wine or beer. Besides this things when I came to plane my sit and table tray was dirty so we had to put blanket over... for the first time I write bad feedback but I have to cause it was terrible.."
Pro: "Good attention and food"
Contra: "THey denied me and I lost all tickets including back trips as well. Nobody helped me to change tickets, they just care about money and reselling my tickets to other passengers."
Pro: "new plane, half empty, good and friendly service"
Contra: "Space between seats"
Pro: "Timing flight people working very nice and hospitality"
Contra: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"
Pro: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Contra: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"
Contra: "Changing planes on Vienna was not easy so 1-hour layover was barely enough (required running)"
Pro: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Contra: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"
Contra: "Entertainment options are limited. Austrian flight attendants were quite grumpy on this flight."
Pro: "Flt was great - service was great"

Contra: "Flight attendants were a bit stoic but did their job."
Pro: "snacks plus they had sparkling mineral water"
Pro: "My flight from Vienna to Warsaw was fine."
Pro: "My wife And infant son we're flying out and when I got them there ticket I asked if they had any available seats with leg room and he said there was nothing available but the best he could do was aisle. When my wife n son went to board on the Stewart or stewardess told them that they are not sitting there and that they will be flying first class today. When my wife landed n told me I was extremely happy that they saw her with a baby and gave my wife n son that option to sit in first class then be tied up in economy and no so comfortable. I greatly appreciate the hospitality you have given my wife n son. Thank you Filip"
Contra: "Complete lack of information and abrupt staff when flight was delayed"
Pro: "Plane left and arrived on time."
Contra: "Rude gate agent. Small seats, no leg room, very crowded together. Clearly a budget airline - should be marketed as such."
Pro: "Good service, nice staff (better than US carriers easily)"
Contra: "2.5 hours to receive baggage - this might be on LAX"
Contra: "no entertainment at all Chairs are not comfortable at all no cushions to ease the back pains"
Pro: "Plenty of food and drinks, pleasant crew"
Pro: "The aircraft was very clean. Very friendly crew."
Pro: "The seats on Austrian airline are very comfortable"
Contra: "Lufthansa lost my luggage for the first two days of my trip. It really hindered my ability to enjoy my first couple days of a fairly short trip to a new country"
Pro: "I loved the boarding process. Everything was very organized! I was lucky to sit by myself next to the window, so i had plenty of space to stretch. The flight was right on schedule, so i didnt have to worry about making it to the next flight. Food was good. We were offered the water through the whole trip which is nice, because i always feel super dehydrated on the plane."
Contra: "I wasn't very satisfied with the flight attendants. I don't know if its just me getting used to american customer service, or me actually working at the customer service, but it's definetely not the greatest level of service. Girls were giving me an attitude and "smartie" ( in a rude way) responds which kinda made me feel uncomfortable and disrespected. I had the same experience with Lufthansa before. And once with russian airlines. Maybe its some kinda tendency to get erogant at this job, but please, don't get me wrong, its not that kinda job where you should look at people from above"
Pro: "So I had to fly to Munich, and rather than flying direct on terrible United, I took a connecting flight via Vienna. Flight was full yet still departed on time and even arrived early. The seat was comfortable and flight went very smoothly. Food served on board was perfectly edible. Disembarking also went without problems. The flight staff even accommodated the requests of a particularly nasty Russian family seated behind me even though they were total jerks. I was very impressed with their professionalism."
Contra: "Nothing. I will make a point of trying to fly via Vienna in the future. Airport is very pleasant and well run."
Pro: "Nice crew"
Contra: "Boarding was very confusing, gate was changed at the last minute without the passengers being warned"
Pro: "Good service. Enough space for the legs. Drinks before and after the meal ."
Contra: "No usb to charge the phone. No media or moovies on the flight. Should inform ahead of time so we would download moovies to tablet or phone."
Contra: "Flight was delayed an hour after boarding to wait for passengers from another flight. I understand waiting 10-15 mins but one hour was way too long."
Pro: "friendly, helpful crew"
Contra: "I paid a premium to book a direct flight (ages ago) and then had to rerouted last minute (same day) with no reason given other than "it's our fault". I inquired about paying to change destination city and or seat to a premium seat (for the 9+ hour flight) when I recvd the reservations for the new flights that were made at the airport around 8am for flights that left at around noon and 3pm. I was told no better seat(s) was available. However, a half hour before the flight was boarded several announcements were made regarding all the upgrades that were available. Liars annoy me."
Pro: "Good food and drinks,great movies"
Contra: "Dirty bathroom,needs upgrade too."
Avionul, fiind foarte mic (și, probabil, vechi), senzațiile au fost nu tocmai plăcute - îmi părea că suntem frunză-n vânt. Majoritatea călătorilor au avut stare de disconfort, din momentul decolării până când avionul a ajuns la o înălțime unde s-a putut stabiliza...
Pro: "Comfortable’ish seats, left on time... arrived early!"
Contra: "Boarding is, continues to be, a big issue! Not organized, everyone trying to jump ahead of others..."
Pro: "that I succeeded to get home"

Pro: "The flight was on time - which is unheard off"
Contra: "The food was eatable - but not really good"

Contra: "Ask the staff not to be so moody for no reason at all."
Pro: "Seating availability at check in no"
Contra: "No tv"
Pro: "The seating availability at the check in time"
Contra: "The TVs never worked"
Pro: "quick boarding (small plane, not many people). appreciated a free meal in economy class on a 1hr flight. Wow! relatively easy check in for my luggage."
Contra: "better signs regarding luggage check in, better seats. gate number changed many times. confusing and hard to hear announcements"
Pro: "Finally not much delay"
Contra: "No AC in hot weather in the bus and on the plane for half an hour before take off."
Contra: "DO NOT FLY THIS AIRLINE they lost my luggage on this flight and their customer service won't even answer the phone. I'm not sure if I'll ever get it back, AVOID AT ALL COST"
Pro: "It was nice"
Contra: "more movies to be purposed ))"
Pro: "The boarding process was not clear. I was not able to add luggage during check in and it said it was included for one piece up to 23 kg. Though my bag fit those requirements I was forced to wait in a separate line and pay 50’euro. The lines were wrapped around and not clearly marked for each flight."
Contra: "Check in process both online and at the airport. The seats on the aircraft."
Pro: "Good crew, attentive, courteous, communicative !!"

Contra: "I am not used to going through Baggage Claim and then checking in again at airports but after I figured it out it was ok"
Pro: "That I didn't die in Chisinau"
Contra: "Spending the entire time I was in Chisinau at the airport vomiting by some out building on the edge of the property. TAROM gave me food that made me sick. On the flight back, a bunch of people were handing those sandwiches back to the stewardesses after looking at them. Now I know why. I went to 25 countries on this trip, and this was low-light number either A1 or A2, depending on how the other thing shakes our financially. I had 3 flights on TAROM, and only one of them sickened me to the extent that I had to throw up."

Pro: "Right on time. Old plane very well mantained and pilots and crew made the flight very pleasant."
Pro: "At check in we were given a window and middle seat, even though I had requested cross aisles, as my wife has a bad knee. The aisle seat was taken by a very large man (I also am large). The flight attendant saw some empty seats in another row and moved the person in the aisle seat to that row. He's A-1 in my book."
Contra: "Check in agent was very unpleasant and didn't give us the seats I had requested - unhappily I didn't notice this until we were past passport control."
Pro: "Punctuality, politeness, cleanness"
Contra: "Food, but not so important for me ."
Contra: "It was impossible to make the check-in online. I had to go to the airport very early. The lady at the check-in desk said that my name was NOT in the system, nor was my flight reservation. She had to look up by the ticket number (highly unusual, she said). The seats were apart for me and my wife, despite the fact thet I had chosen together seats when I made the booking. Next time I will think twice before I go for Kayak or Brussels Airlines (for example, they don't have Bucharest Airport on their departure list on the B.A. website... after all, Romania is a E.U. country!) The second flight took off after 20 mins. delay, and landed w 15 mins. delay."
Contra: "Terrible handling of a situation with a passenger with special needs."
Pro: "Nice crew, roomy seats"
Contra: "Boarding the plane with a bus was a waste of time and exposure to fumes."

Pro: "Great price, no bag fee, nice crew, comfy ride"
Contra: "Mediocre food, no entertainment"
Pro: "Great price, nice crew, decent flight overall"
Contra: "The food was terrible! No entertainment system"

Pro: "Friendly crew"
Contra: "Long wait on the bus out to board the plane"
Pro: "The sandwich was yummy."
Contra: "Everything was fine"
Contra: "There was no entertainment, but that was O.K."
Contra: "Typically a beverage Is offered before take off. This flight it was not offered till the breakfast came out. May have been due to late start to boarding process"
Pro: "The plane had a 50 minutes delay. The reason was "tehnical problems". Actually, 3 persons boarded 40 minutes late, so we all had to wait for them. That was so unfair."
Pro: "CREW IN BOTH FLIGHTS WAS NICE AND HELPFUL"
Contra: "NO AIR CONDITION DURIND THE FLIGHT (WAS BUT DID NOT DO ANYTHING)' MIXED FOOD (CHEESE AND CHICKEN TOGETHER AND NO WAY TO ORDER IN ADVANCE), VERY NICE CREW BOTH SIDED BUT RUDE GROUND STUFF IN ROMANIA,"

Contra: "Very old movies as entertainment."
Pro: "From Toronto to Warsaw we flew with Air Belgium even though we paid a ticket for Polish Airlines and everything was horrible. We waited an hour without any explanation before boarding and another hour and half after boarding. The seats were very uncomfortable and there was no leg room. Flight from Warsaw to Belgrade was a lot better, however 2 out of my 3 luggages were lost. Crew on both flights were lovely."
Contra: "improve list of movies"
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: "The dinner was ample for airplane food."
Contra: "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."
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."
Contra: "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"
Contra: "Boarding went chaotic and slow, this resulted in at least a half hour delay. People were allowed to bring to nuch hand luggage into the cabin."
Contra: "Security. I got my wallet stolen from inside my backpack in the overhead bin."
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: "due to the weather flight was delayed, crew handled it extremely well"
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: "My fourth experience with LOT in a month. The airline gotta be renamed from LOT to LATE. Also the airport is a complete mess, especially the incredibly long security check lines for transfer passengers."
Contra: "Crews are usually polite an professional. Anyway, my complaints refer to the problems with the Chopin airport and the airline/ certainly, not any crews."
Contra: "The plane was having a 25 minutes delay before leaving. It will be nice to offer some chips also as a curtesy"
Pro: "Flight was fine, and on-board crew was polite and helpful."
Contra: "Both the check-in AND gate agents seemed to ignore that you are allowed one personal item (e.g. purse) and one small rolling suitcase (sized and weighed as per LOT requirements) and tried to insist that we check in our small suitcases (for free). In the end, they did relent, but I was surprised at this. There was a small but decent variety of snacks for this 4+ hour flight."
Contra: "Flight cancelled with poor communication."
Pro: "Friendly crew."
Contra: "Plane was a little late,which was OK. The bigger problem is the lost luggage."
Pro: "Normal in-flight service but nothing special."
Contra: "Small plane."
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: "Ground crew did a good job rescheduling and arranging hotel"
Contra: "The flight was cancelled"

Pro: "Modern aircraft, food, extraordinary fligjt attendants"
Contra: "I wish that had wifi."
Pro: "They had a overbooked flight I volunteer to give way my seat didn't ask for any money and return I lost my seat that I pay for it with no refund!"
Pro: "Airport was small and quick to get through."
Pro: "Nice flight crew, decent food available for purchase."
Contra: "I purchased my ticket through Kayak on priceline.com In the description of the fair it was specifically stated that I'm allowed 1 checked in bag. The airline did not send me the standard check in and flight information email, so when out of concer for my flight, I logged in a few hours before to find out that all the good seats were already taken. When I then proceeded to online check in, I was dumbfounded to find out that I do not have any luggage allowance. When I called their English language help line I was connected to a prerecorded message and then promptly connected to a Polish speaking person. Lucky for me I speak some Polish, but if you do not you would have a problem. The person then proceeded to inform me that the flight from Poland to London that I was taking is considered by the Polish airlines as a local flight and for that reason I'm not allotted a free checked in bag. I fly a lot all over the world and this is the first time something like this has ever happened to me. I will now permanently stay away from Lot. They shouldnot be considered a major airline, but a cheap flight air. This way when booking a flight you would know to not expect much from them."

No food or entertainment. Reasonable seats
Daca tot se schimba avionul, ar trebui sa se tina cont si de faptul ca DACA AI PLATIT LOC EXTRASPACE TREBUIE SA BENFICIEZI DE EL! Am avut platit loc extra space care s-a transformat într-un loc normal. De toata jjena!
We couldn´t get the boarding pass on line although we tried many times during the previous 24 hours. They made us to pay a suplement of 30 euros in the airport. We have felt cheated.
announcements in english. 5 hour delay, asked twice (and so did other passengers), but no updates in any other language.
Contra: "This really is more about the flight from paris to Bucharest: I’ve literally never experienced a worse ticketing and boarding process. Old planes, ride staff (even by remarkably curt and abrupt Romanian standards). Broken inline experience. Overall unpleasant. Seems to be flown only by Romanian families with hundreds of pounds of luggage. Like a caravan."
Contra: "I missed my flight because my previous flight was delayed 2.5 hrs"
Pro: "To be going home!"
Contra: "Female crew taking orders then taking ages to ring drinks a d they move on to others instead of finishing what they were doing. Then you're lucky if you get given 1 sugar and no spoon lol."
Pro: "Food was excellent; boarding a litlle bit crowded, but didn't notice as had been busy; crew has been kind and helpful"
Contra: "Unconfortable chair seats; seatbelt too short; tables too low for tall ppl"
Pro: "The flight departed on time and arrived the same. The seat was a tad bit narrow for me but then I am a tall guy at 6'5". Crew was very professional. Ticket cost was a third of what the other airlines were offering for a Sunday fare. I'll definitely use BlueAir again!"
Contra: "I was not allowed to take the push chair on board even though on the inbound flight was ok to do so. I have purchased the push chair especially so I can take it on board. Disappointed."
Pro: "The crew was well trained, kind and receptive. The pilot managed to drive through a storm and even arrive 10 minutes faster after leaving 5 minutes late."
Contra: "Passengers traveling with pets took our reserved seats. The places for our baggages were occupied. When addressing this issue, we were told to move further ahead to empty seats. There was no meal included, and the one we purchased could not be paid by POS."
Pro: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Contra: "I canceled the flight 6 weeks ago, no refund issued."
Pro: "Boarding was quick and we arrived on time."
Contra: "When getting to Bucharest we were taken by bus and didn’t have a gate."
Pro: "Everything was quite fast, we were like 15 min before the plan ready with boarding, but then somebody needed medical assistabce and we left 15 min delayed. But that's ok, it's nobody's fault. Baggage arrived very fast in Hamburg."
Contra: "A minus for the Crew because when we arrived in Hamburg, people started to open the baggage boxes although we were still rolling (like 5 min too early) and they didn't say anything, so more people were following. When we arrived, almost all the people who could, had the baggage already with them. This happened in the past but the Crew stopped the people on time."
Pro: "Stupid survey can’t eliminate category that doesn’t ajgpply"
Contra: "I was unable to check n online (although the process was intitated well earlier than 12 hours prior to departure). The system charged y credit card for a seat reservation and then crashed with an error, both on my phone and laptop browser. When I called at 9:00 am (when their offices are open) to ask for help with what happened, I received no answer other than, "the check in system has just closed. I am unable to help you in any way". I booked another flight with another carrier, and did not take this flight., not do I plan to book with them in the future That being said, it is not the job of the employee to defend a poorly working system. Services need upgrade asap."
Contra: "I have booked with 2 checked in baggage pieces. On check in I was told no baggage was paid and I had to pay 100€ for the baggage."
Pro: "Boarding was good, flight and crew were good, had refreshments and food which came as a surprise. Overall I had a very good flight."
Contra: "I liked everything"
Pro: "Flight Attendants very good"
Contra: "Dusseldorf to Warsaw: Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight out of Dusseldorf (about an hour) - Just before landing, pilot announced all connections would be made - (and even mentioned chicago) - Connecting flight was gone when I arrived at gate, and I was quick in getting to gate from prior flight - next flight caused 5 hour layover in Warsaw Warsaw to Chicago Boarding terrible including assistance and messaging. - Boarding chaos - Late flight our ot Warsaw (about an hour) - no messaging at gate about reason for delay - kept increasing departure by 5 minute increments; started at 16:40 ended 17:05 (I beleive) - once boarding was complete, pilot said delay was due to wait for connections (boarding was an hour and 15 minutes late). Very frustrated"
Pro: "They are more professional and helpful. Really seemed like they knew what they were doing. The flight crew was accommodating and polite. The plane was very comfortable"
Contra: "7hour delayin onnecting flight! Seats on plane torn and very uncomfortable, meal booked but no food available."
Pro: "The free snack (biscuits and drink). The hard-working attendant (having to stuff all the baggage into the overhead lockers). Boarding at the rear door enabling me to get to my seat early."
Contra: "A slight whistling noise coming from the rear of the cabin, not too bothersome but it's there (I think the plane is getting a bit old). Not being able to disembark from the rear."
Contra: "It was very hot on the plane. There was no legroom in my seat, it was very uncomfortable."

Contra: "delay of more than 6 hours and incorrect information"
Pro: "company gave out free drinks and snacks"
Contra: "They change the fly departing time with 12 hours before I was flying"
Pro: "The flight went well."
Contra: "Bag drop off was terrible and stressful. We arrived 2.5 Hours early to drop the ONE suitcase and have brunch. We queued for 1.5 Hours to then be blocked as all six counters were given over to another flight and people who arrived LATER then us for our flight got to go first. It was incredibly stressful and frustrating especially when I checked in online before arriving at the airport. We had to rush and run through the airport and board at final call. In fact it would put me off flying with Blue Air again."
Contra: "Flight was cancelled a week before and didn't get a replacement flight. Got half of my money back. Will never book a blue air flight again !"
Pro: "Flight on time . Attentive crew . Good price ."
Contra: "Lack of leg room ."

Contra: "Better seat pitch. I'm not a tall man, but the space is very small."
Pro: "On time , crew good... no complaints"
Pro: "free breakfast great staff"
Pro: "Cheap in price, unexpected free snack on outbound flight, relaxed attitude to luggage, both hold and carry on, chartered unscheduled flight after original was cancelled"
Contra: "The fact our original flight was cancelled and we were delayed by 7.5 hours. They communication from the airport crew was little to non and flight time changed 4 times. They even told us difinitively that we would board at a certain time only for us to actually board nearly 2 hours later. They, without a doubt, knew the rescheduled flight time but strung us on anyway - I believe this was so they could save money on hotels"
Pro: "Everything was awesome!!! I am going to buy only from you my next flights."
Contra: "The agent lady on the desk did nothing to help us get on our flight. She refused to identify herself. We intend to sue the company for the damages caused to us because of this bad attitude."

Contra: "Planes were late Issue with on-line check-in Non responsive contact center at high cost per minute Absolutely inadequate space for knees, am 1.93 and my knees were stuck all the way during the flight although I had upgraded to a seat with better space. Old aircraft"
Pro: "The service was OK, we flew on time and the flight itself was pleasant."
Contra: "The interior of the aircrafts looked old and a bit dirty. The feeling is that you are flying on a poor low cost service."
Pro: "I was surprised and pleased as well that the flight attendant listen to me when I mentioned that it's very cold in the cabin and in less than 30 minutes the temperature was changed and bearable"
Contra: "Not applicable"
