The first 787 to be delivered to a European airline has just taken off.

http://fr24.com/LOT9787

Upon entering Polish airspace, the flight will be escorted by 4 F16s of the Polish air force. In the next few weeks several flights will be flown within Europe for crew training, substituting regular flights.

Quite the event for LOT: http://dreamliner.lot.com/

WAW spotters get ready...

Thank you for posting the radar link. I was trying to find it and I could not. The plane is expected to do a low fly by before landing in WAW. LOT is also introducing a new product called Economy Club with reclining chairs and dedicated crew. Specially trained crew is also dedicated to business class.

Thanks! Are they going to have a second aircraft by then or are they going to do what ET is doing and send it to each destination 1-2x a week?

last check LO will have 2/3 x 787's by early JAN 2013

LOT Polish Airlines - 2 deliveries

ZA270 (LN 61, SP-LRA) - November
ZA271 (LN 78, SP-LRB) - December

LOT Polish Airlines' 787 deliveries. The first contractual delivery of ZA270 (LN 61, SP-LRA) is tentatively scheduled for November 9th. This aircraft will remain in Everett for about 5 days for crew training before flying to Warsaw on the 14th.

Future deliveries flights of LOT's other 787s to Warsaw are scheduled as follows:

ZA271 (LN 78, SP-LRB) - delivery to Warsaw is in early January 2013 (probably contractual delivery in late December 2012)

The other three in production are to be delivered at monthly intervals during the first quarter of 2013 but they will all be waiting in Everett in storage



NZ 787-9 flying between PVG - AKL ! CAN'T WAIT!!

They will not do that, hence a spread of commencement dates on various routes from January 16 through March 3rd.
They expect o have 5 787s by March and additional 3 a some point during summer of 2013. They will probably start NRT in October 2013. Also PEK will be expanded to daily service by next summer.

With the arrival of their new 787's, there are a few things I am curious about.

1.) Will any of the 787's wear the Star Alliance Colors?

2.) When will the phase out begin for the 767s?

Hopefully more new planes ( 73NGs or A320s ) will be arriving to LOT soon!

I looked at a flight from WAW to YEG via YYZ in March, and not sure why but only Economy Flex as the "highest" class comes up on their website. I guess due to codeshare with AC, but I'd figure that there would be an option for something better even if connecting on a codeshare partner later on.

The 767s (now 3 or 4 of them still flying) will start leaving the fleet as more dreamliners arrive. By April 2013, the start of the summer flight schedule, there ought to be no more 767s flying for LOT.

Already began. SP-LPA had its last commercial flight few days ago.

So I'm guessing none of the 787s will have special name's and emblems near the nose like the 767s did?

That's actually March 2013 when the last 767 will leave LOT. SP-LPA is goe and the SP-LPC was just sold for parts (this is the one that had emergency landing) and I think one will leave in Jan, one in Feb and the last one in March.

So they're down to only 3 long-haul aircraft? How will they manage their schedule until all the 787s arrive? Are they still leasing the AeroSvit 767?

Three 767s are enough for the winter timetable. Starting from mid-January the 787s will start operating selected flights.
