I have flown a large number of airlines and rarely get the service provided by Lot. On all four legs of my trip..the service was excellent. Food choices were good , and attendants paid attention to every need. It reminded me of Pan Am service ..a long time ago.

Very comfortable seat and I'm a tall traveller. Service was a coffee and chocolate biscuit. Arrived late but crew advised me personally what gate my next flight was leaving from and moved me to a seat at the front of the plane. Very impressed by this. Made connection easily and again the seat was very comfortable.

LOT is flying the Boeing 787 Dreamliner nonstop from JFK to Warsaw. The plane was beautiful and the service was excellent. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco, a warm towel and snacks and drinks followed. Two full meals were also served. Beer, wine, whiskey, juices, soda, water and of course Polish vodka were included in the fare. The...

If I could I would give zero stars! We use this airlines few times but after yesterday I would never ever use this airline again. Avoid using it, especially if you have a stop in Warsaw. They have tight connection like an hour or 55 min. So if your flight is delay in Chicago you would miss the next flight....

Lot has Bombardier planes that are new, modern and comfortable on short haul. The service is always good and that is something you get accustomed to in Poland. They provide only a chocolate bar on short haul and so there is nothing much in the way of inflight catering.

LOT is a decent long haul airline with brand new 787 jets but the short haul inter European flights are terrible. The planes are old, the service terrible and they are always late. I have flown multiple segments with them this year and every single flight I took was delayed. This is a low cost airline with traditional airline pricing.

Very reliable airline, good prices, on time and safe. Gateway to other European cities from Cyprus as it usually travels very early morning. Recommended!

Let me start with the fact, that I usually make some round trip on a business purposes and most of those flights are operated by LOT. These are short-hauls within Europe (all flights were either from or to Warsaw), mostly Economy class. As twice I had occasion to fly Economy Plus I'll put some notes about that in the end....

Super, feel that it was decent value for the money and it fills a nice niche for people who want a bit extra, but can't justify the exorbitant costs of first class.

I decided to fly LOT from Europe to Toronto because of the excellent prices offered in business class. The LOT lounge at Warsaw Airport is small but acceptable, with a good choice of snacks and refreshments. The flight on a 787 was very comfortable, given the 2-2-2 seating with good lie-flat beds. The meal was not very exciting, exccept the...
