Today LOT Polish Airlines received invitation from Iraqi majors to start flying on Warsaw-Baghdad route. And LOT said 'Yes'. Plans to have 2 fights a week on route with 1 stop in Beirut. LOT is another airline after Lufthansa, KLM and Virgin that will get new route in the schedule.

As far as I know Peacekeeping troops will fly on Ukrainian military aircraft ( AN-124?) rented by polish gov. specially for this purpose. On the other hand we are talking about 2300 troops, so I dont know if Ukrainians can handeled it, plus some jurnalists and gov. officials. Anyway its first time I hear about this. What is the source?

I only hope that "reconstruction" will proceed as quickly as possible. I am sure there are many family members not only here in the US but around the world who are just counting the days down until they can fly back to their home. I know for NW it will be a full flight everyday once we can safely operate into Baghdad. I think it will certainly be longer than just the end of the year before flights are allowed back in though....
