I think you have to appreciate Polish culture. Don't forget that the Poles are a fiercely nationalistic group of people, proud of their language and still somewhat distrustful of foreigners - and who can blame them, given the country's history.
Personally I like to see the native language on the fleet, even if English is a better marketing tool.
What next? Aeroflot written in English rather than Cyrillic? That'll be the day.
When I take one of them as an example, "Delta Connection (Comair)". In the past when there was no guideline for this, you could find this name in the airline field of the photo caption as e.g.:
Delta Connection Comair
and a few other combinations (and misspellings). Multiply this with the other operating companies of Delta Connection, and you can imagine how the database looked in the past.
There have been many requests of company staff and pilots, but also of general viewers, who asked that it should be possible to see e.g. all the photos for Comair under one button. But others wanted to see all Delta Connection photos under one button. Also many people find it very interesting to see from which company an aircraft is leased. With the new method of listing the names all these wishes can be satisfied. When you know a better method please let me know.
...and furthermore, there are many more photos of airlines in this DB, with titles in both English and a native language, pure logic says that the same rules should be used for all of them, just not for some selected ones...

Explanation is easy - 100% owner of Eurolot is LOT so they have one policy. Eurolot received ATRs from LOT. I guess Eurokot will be reduced to 5 aircrafts only (new AT45). All the rest will be LOT aircraft.
In fact you should treat them as a one company although formally separate entities.
