Według załóg szkolenie na samolocie odbywało się bez żadnych problemów, jedynie podczas odbioru samolotu okazało się, że ze względu na usterkę awioniki konieczne będzie wykonanie dodatkowego lotu akceptacyjnego.

From what I have heard, the 170's will partially be replacing 735's on some routes. Though this was just a speculation in this thread: http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1399839/4/
I hope to see their 170 in Tallinn soon, but probably it's just the plain old 145's that keep coming here.

...was the purchase of the EMB-170s made to replace the EMB-145s or just to add to the fleet?
Having just come back from Warsaw where I've been crawling all over the LOT 170, I can tell you that some of the -145s will eventually be replaced by 170s but not until the new aircraft are pretty much all delivered.

About the EJ-170 : It's sure nice, cool looking. But I hope (and don't think) that this little thing can be a reasonable substitute for the 737 fleet, while the ERJ-195 could be, but that's future talk, since LOT has opted for additional 10 a/c's in the future. And I also think that using the -170 on routes such as WAW-DUB-WAW is crazy !!! What's next, WAW-JFK-WAW ?
Wonder what new a/c's they'll get now, top replace the 737's. Oh, and it is flattering to have my country's airline be the first to fly this sucker, I always thought that US airways or Alitalia was first! POLAK POTRAFI !
