Pros: "The food, crew, entertainment"

Other passengers received food and water as a small compensation and we received nothing, even though our same flight was cancelled. They had to rebook us twice due to their mistake and no one even apologized. Barely made any effort into helping us from their own mistake."
Cons: "Very unpleasant and unhelpful staff (apart from the ones in-flight)"
Pros: "I was boarded very professionally. I have a heart condition that requires medication. I explained this to the gate agent to request assistance in boarding and they complied with my request."
Cons: "LOT is not an airline that impressed me in any way. When I flew from Los Angeles to Warsaw, my bag was weighed, and I was told it was over limit. This, in spite of the fact that I weighed this bag on a calibrated scale prior to entering the airport, and my luggage was 5 pounds BELOW the limit. This seemed a blatant attempt to gain additional money from me, because I know the bag was not overweight. The food selections were average at best. Leaving Warsaw traveling to Los Angeles, we left almost an hour past our original scheduled departure do to the need to obtain additional supplies. On my next trip to Europe, I will look for alternate flight providers."
Pros: "I have been flying with them for the past 16 years(economy seats), and I have to say that their service,and comfort of overnight flights have improved tremendously! Partially due to the fact that they have 787 Dreamliners now, in which the seats are wider and are reclining more than before, the leg room is bigger, the air quality better. The crew members are very professional,not overly sweet,yet caring and understanding,especially when you are flying with small children.As to those complaining about overcharged luggage- read the rules people! If you go over the maximum limit of 50lb for a check in, let's say 2lb,they won't charge you,but don't expect them to close their eyes when your luggage weighs almost double that!"
Cons: "The food is ok, nicely packed, but even if you don't like it they have extra options to purchase for a small price."
Cons: "BROKEN LIGHT! I wish I had some tape or even a bandaid to block that annoying light- did not sleep at all"
Pros: "The food!"
Cons: "The layover but that's not in your control so no worries!"
Cons: "The seats are squeezed, no space for normal legs. you have to wait a long time for a glass of water. I AM NOT FLYING WITH THEM ANY MORE"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "At boarding we were told we needed an additional security clearance "that way". When we searched for it and couldn't find it, we asked two different employees and they didn't know or offer to help. We finally found it but it wasn't a good experience. And finding out at boarding time was not helpful."
Pros: "The initial flight was delayed and they sent an agent to escort us quickly through the airport and ensure we didn't miss the flight."
Pros: "I liked every thing the crew was exelent"
Cons: "Dislike to crowded"
Cons: "Boarding started at least half an hour late."
Pros: "The price was fair."
Cons: "They were very fussy about the weight of my carryon"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The whole crew"
Pros: "Half-full plane, so more room to stretch out in the smallish seats."
Cons: "Plane delayed without any announcement - and up until the moment of departure, we were told we were on time (regardless of what the clock actually said.) Had to sprint to connecting flight in Warsaw to make it on time. Also, there was zero included meals on this flight - just a chocolate wafer and water. You had to pay for anything slightly more substantial (a limited menu of sandwiches.) Small seats, as it is a small plane."
Pros: "Food and service were ok."
Cons: "I flew in Premium, but I had to call the airline to have the seat assigned. I could not choose the seat online although the website said I could choose a seat ahead of time. The only way to see the arrangement of seats was through seatguru.com. The best seats for the Premium Class are 4A, 4B and 4F and 4G, which are the first row in Premium. The rest of them have legs or boxes under the seat in front of you, so there is really now way you can stretch your legs fully under the seat in front of you during the flight. I was able to secure 4G for my return flight from Warsaw, but going to Warsaw from O'Hare I was put into 6B, no proper room for the right leg. They did not let us use the Business Class bathroom, which was much closer. We had to go all the way to the bathroom behind the row 19. Very inconvenient. They allow dogs in the Premium cabin, so if you are allergic to dogs brace yourself. I fly LOT only when I have no other option."
Cons: "no Wi-Fi..."
Cons: "Nor enough beverage for such a long flight Ice cube?"
Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "entertainment system did not work properly,food was worse than fast food,cabin crew was average at best."
Pros: "Got us home to Toronto from Warsaw in one piece and affordable."
Cons: "food was too simple. "Dinner" was so poor after 6 or 7 hours, we only received half a sandwich and a dessert. The seats did not give us a lot of movement. My husband could not even put down his tray table because woman in front pushed her chair back. In general, there was not a lot of English speaking from the stewardesses. Very strong Polish accents made it very hard to understand what they said on the speaker. Not too many choices of English movies."
Pros: "I didn’t"
Cons: "I was a business class passenger and the flight might as well have been economy, with the exception of the food. There was no personal entertainment, the seat foot rest did not work — it was an old plane — the seats recline all the back to the lap of the person behind you — so when the guy in front of me was done eating he proceeded to lay back — however I wasn’t done eating — and it knocked over my glass of sparkling water —- typically even if a passenger is still eating there is still room for the person to lay back — I had to push the persons seat quickly before my whole tray was wrecked."
Pros: "Nice flight and Comfortable"
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Rough landing in Bah."
Pros: "Good flight and really comfortable. Rate 5 star"

Pros: "Price was really good"
Cons: "Flight was late then I missed the my next flight and there was not any other flight till morning and I have to stay at hotel was Oman arrange it but it was to much Hassal I faced and the people who was there to pick me from air port"
Pros: "New 787 seats were extremely comfortable for short-haul, regional. 2-2-2 may not suit some people for long haul. Good selection of in-flight entertainment. Nice sincere service."
Cons: "Boarding was unpleasant. Buses to aircraft: had to wait approx 10 mins in the bus on the tarmac whilst the previous two buses unloaded. Then the actual staircase / boarding process took nearly 10 minutes... queueing in 41 degree heat. Muscat is a very new airport and many gates with airbridges were not being used. As the home airport of the national carrier I wouldn't expect tarmac boarding."
Pros: "in flight entertainment was really good"
Cons: "checkin luggage was terrible with more than half an hour wait although web checkin was already made"
Cons: "Chairs are small"
Pros: "Got 3 seats so I could sleep"
Cons: "everything ok"
Pros: "Impossible to enjoy a flight you didn't choose and were forced to fly on due to a schedule change, especially when the flights you'd booked had much better timing for a fixed teacher's holiday schedule. Avoid Oman Air unless you are sadistic and enjoy forced flight changes and no compensation. As I was forced to change to a flight to one arriving at 03.10 with my work starting at 06.00, I tried (and failed due to a lack of space and fidgety neighbour) to sleep all the flight to be fresh and professional for my work. The booked flight which was forcibly cancelled got me home 9pm the night before work. Oman Air refused a suggestion to upgrade me to business class so I could try and sleep."
Cons: "I am a teacher. I can't choose my holiday times. I get three fixed weeks in summer. In both 2017 + 2018 Oman Air changed their schedule forcing me to change my flights. I was out of pocket for a small amount - they refused to pay the $27.60. I was to arrive home at 9pm for an 06.00 start to work they changed my flight so I arrived at 04.00. I asked for an upgrade to business class to try and sleep. They ignored the request. They instead sent me a copy of the small print saying that they were allowed to change anyone's flights and give zero compensation if the 'client' is informed two weeks in advance. I will avoid Oman Air from now on, even if they seem to offer the best times to fly."
Cons: "Poor service Not adhering to time Very bad air conditioning"
Cons: "In Oman airs home airport there was no service desk. When the flight was delayed the sent 1 agent do deal with a full glitch’s worth of guests. Even though the delay was over 6 hours they gave no compensation besides lounge access to a lounge that is not fully functional. The next morning (yes the delay was overnight and they didn’t provide a hotel room) they called us all to the gate only to tell us they still were waiting for the plane to be repaired (the night before they’d Told us the flight would be in time as they’d flown another plane in). Again there was only one Oman air agent and just normal airport staff to handle the full flight. People were yelling and there was a lot of anger but no official announcements were ever made and only rumors passed from those who actually had a chance to talk to the on me guy. Finally when i arrived in Bangkok it seemed like they had there act together as there were many agents on the gangway to assist people to find connecting flights. Being so late there was only on flight for me and several others trying to get to Phuket. An agent took us to immigration and told us all he’d meet us in the other side to take us to the check in. HE DIDN’T SHOW UP. We couldn’t go back in the airport to find him or anyone from Oman air and were left to find an airport employee who graciously helped us find the booking office and just make the flight. I fly internationally regularly and this was by far the worst airline experience I’ve ever had or even heard about."
Pros: "As above."
Cons: "As above."
Pros: "It was only a short trip from Doha to Muscat to Dubai but it went very well. The flights were on time, the plane was comfortable and the staff were very helpful."
Cons: "My only concern was that unless I caught the 4.00 pm flight I had to wait until the 7.30 pm (4 hour layover) or 9.30 pm (2 hour layover) flights from Doha both of which do not get to Dubai until 3.30 am. I could not catch the 4.00 pm as it was a work day. The flight timings are not good."
Cons: "All ok"

Pros: "Ease of transfer and information"
Cons: "No option on dietary requirements"
Cons: "Problems with our extra legroom being allocated at the check in desk as oman employ a 3rd party called option town to handle this process.

Leaking emergency exits that cover passengers in condensation."
Pros: "Decent entertainment system and choices."
Cons: "Poor quality headphones - jacks are often messed up make sure you have your own. Got food poisoning on Muscat to Paris flight - other than that the food tended to be quite bland. Need to give out more water on flight to combat dehydration as well. Stopping in Muscat's terminal was like a time warp back to a 1970s mall. Also no direct connection to terminal, planes park out on tarmac and take people on 1 km bus ride to connect to terminal. Legroom was pretty tight but not horrid Never thought I would be as happy to get back to Manila!"

Also no direct connection to terminal, planes park out on tarmac and take people on 1 km bus ride to connect to terminal. Legroom was pretty tight but not horrid Crew making announcements on landing were unprofessional, heard co-pilot or steward laughing in the background - while captain droned on in Arabic - this does not engender confidence in their ability to fly the plane!"
Pros: "Quick boarding and disembarking. Polite crew members."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order so there were often long waiting times. Nor were the bathroom engagement lights working so it appeared to be vacant when it was occupied. Food and announcements were too frequent for a late night flight - only 2 hours to sleep on a 6 hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Once i got to my seat i was seated by a smelly person and the flight attendant did move me to another seat upon my request."
Cons: "Trying to get on the flight was frustrating because there’s no organization! The thing i did not like was that they made us put the cover to the window up like 30 minutes before landing and the sun was directly in my eyes! I tried to put it down half way and the flight attendant made it a problem."
Cons: "Very delayed. Would not put us on a direct flight."

Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Nearly all staff very professional and trying to 'be the best'. Generous with drinks."
Cons: "Bizarre incident with FA over meal. I'm on left aisle of middle row of 3 seats. Another customer is on the other aisle. Middle seat empty. Both meal trolleys moving up aisles, ten seconds apart. FA leans over me and asks the man on the other aisle what he wants to eat and serves him. I'm busy putting netbook away so my tray table will be empty. FA 'forgets' to invite me to eat. This is an Arab airline???! In 49 years of air travel I have never seen such a thing. I sit there wondering what on earth is happening. Weeks later I'm still bewildered."
Pros: "Was the cheapest flight for the dates on offer and now apparent short cuts"

Cons: "Flight did not take off due to technical prOblems with the plane. Looking to get a refund but very bad response rate."
Pros: "Other than the smile of the crew i did not like anything. It was late at night and old AC . I really liked the massage in the business lounge."

Cons: "Insufficient leg space, available movie selection"

Cons: "Since it was a very quick flight there was no service, not even a quick beverage service that you would find on similar length flights elsewhere. Still a great bargain and good experience."
