Why No LOT To IAD?

From time to time I've wondered about this. LOT is in Star Alliance and IAD is a Star hub, so why hasn't LOT thought of a WAW-IAD route?

We all know their flight to PEK was a disaster, so I assume that IAD could theoretically work better. Though is there a decent sized Polish community in the D.C. area to begin with? I guess LOT focuses more on O&D traffic?

 checkmark There's your answer. While Chicago and Toronto are both *A hubs (and EWR soon will be), that's not why LO serves those airports. It's all about the expat populations, and D.C.'s isn't as large.

There's no historic enclave of Polish American in the Washington DC/Maryland/Northern Virginia region.

There are very large enclaves of Polish Americans in and around Chicago, NYC and New Jersey which is why LOT Polish serves EWR, JFK and ORD.
