Airline Rating & Flight Compensation

LOT Polish Airlines Flight Delays Compensation 

Airlines operate hundreds of flights every month - even thousands or tens of thousands for the largest ones. It’s no surprise that a portion of these flights is delayed. LOT is no exception: some of the airline’s flights arrive later than planned at their destination.

When LOT Polish Airlines could have avoided the delay but failed to do so, it’s only fair that passengers get compensated. That’s what the European law states. EC261 protects your passenger rights and requires airlines to pay up to 600€ per passenger in compensation for flight delays. 

ClaimCompass is here to make sure that airlines like LOT respect the law and to help air passengers have their rights enforced. Once you’ve given us permission to handle your claim, we contact the airline, take care of the whole for you, and send you your compensation. You don’t have to lift a finger!

As a result, LOT Polish Airlines’ flight performance is slightly below average, with a rating of 4.7.

      LOT Polish Airlines Flight Cancellation Compensation 

      LOT Polish Airlines sometimes has no choice but to cancel their flights. While it’s going to disrupt your travel plan, the EU Regulation 261/2004 once again protects your air passenger rights. In this situation as well, the airline must be responsible: travellers on flights cancelled for extraordinary circumstances are not eligible to compensation. These circumstances include strikes, air traffic control restrictions, adverse weather conditions, security threats, and a few more.

      But when the airline was responsible and failed to let you know about the cancellation at least 14 days before the departure date, EU law states that you can get up to 600€ for your trouble - the exact amount depends on the length of your journey.

      ClaimCompass can help you get the money the airline owes you. Just fill out your flight details in our Compensation Calculator and we will take care of the whole for you.

      The initial response time of LOT is just below average - but they are very fast to pay compensation when it is due (about 6 weeks only). The main problem comes from claims that require the intervention of the court: the Polish airline is usually slower to pay these compensations. Overall, LOT’s performance in claim processing since the beginning of 2018 is above average and keeps improving.
