I have not seen or heard of any LOT transatlantic cuts but flights from Poland to the US and Canada are less and less. I understand 2 older 762s have been given back but they still have I think at least 4 763s.
My parents are headed to Poland and the travel agent said that LOT has been cutting flights to every other day (from ORD).
Chicago is their most important transatlantic destination and in the summer they can have up to 3 flights to ORD from KRK and WAW.
Me and another airline nutjob like myself went for a stroll in the international terminal and saw that LOT had cancelled BOTH flights from Poland to ORD.
I checked flightaware these past 2 weeks rarely seeing an ORD-Polska route.
I usually see 1 763 to PL from NewYork or toronto.

Quoting LH431 (Reply 5): And what about Rzeszow/Reichshof? Confused Or is it via KRK, but with same-plane/flight number
This is a smart marketing move for LO. Besides aiming at Malopolska/Podkarpacie Polish clients, many travelers are also from Western Ukraine. Lviv - the biggest city in the region is just 180 km from RZE.

Quoting KochamLOT (Reply 7): back to the transatlantic topic though, I only see 2 flights between PL and N. America; LOT does have more than 2 767s....I thought they had 4 or 5 763s!? no?
The are left with 5 763 - LPA, LPB, LPC, LPE and LPF. Due to reduced demand the winter schedule is operated with 3 763 (20 weekly rotations from Poland to the US/Canada). Remaining two aircraft are either wet-leased for some charters or in storage at WAW. It is interesting to see what happens for summer 2009 season, since 762s - LOA and LOB - are gone, LOT needs to get two extra 763s to offer the same number of flights as this past summer.
