"passengers to switch seats"

(Switzerland)

I flew from Zurich to Warsaw, then Warsaw to Tbilisi in July and returned the same way in August. 3 out of 4 flights were delayed. The troubleshooters at the airport (not LOT staff) in Warsaw had a lot of work to do because apparently other flights were delayed as well. Same on the way back. I guess it's normal that LOT is late, and it's normal that the airport needs to troubleshoot. No problems with luggage however (fast transfer worked fine). What I found interesting as well was the fact that the planes from/to Zurich were always new, and the planes from/to Tbilisi were old. I guess people from/to Georgia don't have the same quality expectations and LOT takes this into account. Food costs extra. The "gourmet" menu includes packaged snacks. The seat reservation system only worked via iPhone app, not via browser on mobile/tablet/desktop. A lot of discussions on all flights among the passengers to switch seats and sit next to their families. I paid for a seat with extra leg-room but could not use it. Good to know, the prices for overweight or extra luggage are quite a bit higher than at other airlines.

"aircraft is small but nice"

(United States)

I recently flew LOT Polish Airlines Bombardier Q400 turbo prop aircraft. This aircraft is small but nice because it has a 2x2 seat layout. All these aircraft are used on short haul service for LOT. The seat is a little thin but fine. Surprisingly such a small aircraft has recline, just the perfect amount for an hour flight and not too much you are in the person's face behind you. The plane is smooth for a turbo prop and not terribly loud. There is a nice sized seat back pocket and a sufficient amount of overhead bin space, but not too much room for a backpack by your feet. If you are a bigger person this aircraft maybe be uncomfortable for you because it is an all economy cabin.

"seats offer normal comfort"

(United Kingdom)

Seats in LOT's Boeing 787 offer normal comfort. Average width, recline, seat legroom, but they're quite new and not tattered. I think these seats could be narrow for larger people with the 3x3x3 cabin layout.

"horrible seat width"

(Canada)

Horrible seat width. Very tight. The arm rest was pressing against my hips for this long 9 hour flight from Toronto to Warsaw and return. The 787s are built to have 8 seats across not 9. The airlines are shrinking the seat widths in most wide bodies. Stop cramping passengers like sardines just to get 20-30 more seats and make more money. Very horrible seating experience in 787s tight seats, although the leg room was ok, the seat width being tight is enough to make you suffer through out all this long flight.

"legroom is limited"

(Poland)

Despite being an advanced airplane, the Boeing 787 Economy seat at LOT is not the best. IFE is good, table is smart, but the legroom is limited and seats are very narrow. You literally touch your neigbour with your shoulders. Short flights are okay, but I can not imagine flying 10+ hours there.

"seat is reasonably comfortable"

(United Kingdom)

Window seat 21J in Economy. Short-haul flight from WAW to LHR around 2 hours 45 minutes in the air. Seat is reasonably comfortable for this length of flight but I don't think it would be comfortable for long-haul flights. Overall the seats are no better than in their 737s or Embraer aircraft. Foot rests are available but I never use them. I am of average height but tall people would struggle to get comfortable. The seat belt kept coming loose during the flight which is a concern in such a new aircraft.

"very old and worn out"

(United States)

Most of the seats in economy are very very old and worn out. What I found was that on most if not all of the seats in economy section the buttons are completely worn out. There is virtually no bottom support just a hole.

"one of the worst seats"

(United States)

My seat was 7C and it was one of the worst seats for a 8+ hour flight. It was so worn by use one's body could not sit naturally in it. You felt yourself slouching or sliding forward the whole time and could not correct yourself. LOT also does not have video on each seat instead it is a projector at the front of the cabin so the closer you are to rows 5 or 19 the better view of the video screen (which randomly turns on and off). Lastly the sound quality and physical/mechanical quality of the headphone inputs were horrible!
