| Chicago to Skopje via Warsaw. Traveling a long haul flight I thought my kids will be the reason I will be exhausted, but they slept and were perfectly behaved both ways to and from Europe. On our way to Skopje the flight was delayed making us miss our connection and they had us have an additional connection (no one was willing to help or even show us where to go to figure everything out, I even asked one of the flight attendants where the transfer center was and he yelled at me: “Not on this airplane” in a condescending voice, while I just wanted to know if anyone would point us to it, since we were already late for our second flight) With kids it wasn’t easy, but the flights themselves were horror. The flight Chicago-Warsaw they brought the bassinet for my infant about 4 hours into the flight, so I was holding her the whole time everyone was eating, I asked for it many times and I was answered later they would give me food and bassinet and I was left hungry. I was never offered water, let alone food. Even while trying to put my carry on and my baby who just started getting up, fell on the floor and me trying to get one of the flight attendants to help (and I’m not saying I’m entitled to special treatment because I travel with children) they still ignored me. The highlight of the whole way to Skopje was Austrian airlines impromptu connection, they were amazing with me and the kids and very accommodating. On our way back to Chicago surprise, surprise the plane was late, yet again. The flight crew was as rude as ever. Some of the flight attendants that belonged to Belgium Airways were nice, but still, the LOT flight attendants looked as if it was a punishment to even be on that flight, as if someone was holding them against their will. I even asked one of the flight attendants if they would hold my infant daughter so I could go to the bathroom, which I was encouraged to do, before boarding, they promised as if they were incredibly kid friendly. Well, I was scolded as a child by a LOT flight attendant that they shouldn’t be doing this and they are not going to help me. He yelled at me as if I offended him. I asked very nicely if he would please or anyone on the flight crew if they were comfortable holding children help me out (one of the Belgium Airlines FA ladies did play and hold my daughter just prior in the flight, and the reason why I felt it would be ok to even ask for this). I am beyond baffled by my experience. Especially because I traveled with United before coming to Chicago and was treated with such dignity and respect, I expected to be treated the same. I honestly thought I never asked for any special treatment, but I literally received no treatment, no respect. The flight crew avoided me like the plague because I had children with me. If you are a family or just a person that feels like you have dignity, steer clear of LOT Polish Airlines.
