ACMILAN 19 Sep 2009 #91I can only talk about flying within Europe, because I have never been outside of it.The last years I have been flying a lot with different airlines, and there are some differences between them. I am from Holland and we have a very good airline wich I would choose if possible: KLM. The standards are high as well as the service. I spend my last holiday visiting Krakow, Poland and I flew with LOT airlines. The flight was to Warsaw with a transfer flight to Krakow (and back again ofcourse). Funny detail is that I have been in 3 different planes for the 4 flights. From Amsterdam to Warsaw and from Warsaw to Krakow in an Embraer 170, from Krakow to Warsaw in an ATR 42 (or 72 I am not sure) with a little more bumps on the way. From Warsaw to Amsterdam in an Embraer 175. About my experiences with LOT airlines: I have noticed very few differences with other European airliners. The people in the plane and at the service desk were nice and friendly. The last plane was very new. The food was not special, but not bad either. I would not avoid LOT in the future, they seem a professional European Airline to me. About the Polish people in general: I think the people are very friendly and helpful and made me feel well. This country has suffert a lot in past en recent history, but the people seem to be very positive. This is not the United States of America so don't try to compare them or call them a 2nd world country. It is not fair and not the truth! (reaction to a quote of 11111111).
