Have flown them on Rome Fiumicino-Warsaw, they were ok, typical low-cost flight, lower prices for snacks and drinks than other carriers though. The only thing I thought was a little strange is that the F/As did not do anything about people standing up and opening the overhead bins during taxi (with people I mean about 30% of all the guys on the plane).

It's very curious... "Polonia" means "Poland" in Spanish.
Polonia is also a Polish word meaning "people of Polish origin who live outside Poland", or at least that's the main definition.
As the airline started life as a cargo and charter carrier taking Polish holidaymakers to sunnier Mediterranean climes I don't think they initially planned to provide air services to ex-pats. I think the name sounds quite catchy though, certainly better than some of the other low cost airline names that have appeared lately.
It's just a shame that their livery is so ugly and not as patriotic as their name suggests. I mean, the easyJet-style orange and grey splattered all over the tail and engines is hideous. Something red and white would be much better.
And as for their network, I think it is quite impressive for a small airline, especially the number of destinations now served from STN to Poland.

So... Polonia is a very different word in both languages... it's very curious and interesting.Thanks for that information, Adam.
Do you know if Air Polonia will fly to any Spanish resort destination or to increase frecuencies to MAD?
By the way, the info found in its web-site about the 737's is false... it look like they don't know that Airbus exist
