Part of planning a flight though Polish airspace is having to dig your way through all the airlines and air transportation companies that are not allowed to overfly Poland due to one reason or another but this one caught my attention:
B1281/11 - PERMISSIONS FOR ENTRY INTO POLISH AIRSPACE WILL NOT BE GRANTED
THE FOLLOWING AIR CARRIER: AIRTRAN AIRWAYS INC -/TRS/- UNITED STATES
DUE TO UNFULFILLED CONDITIONS DESCRIBED IN AIP POLAND GEN 4.2. 09 MAR 00:00
2011 UNTIL 09 JUN 23:59 2011 ESTIMATED. CREATED: 07 MAR 11:39 2011
Perhaps a new international destination is in the works??? Or are they just leasing an aircraft?
The only situation I can imagine when they'd have come within 3000nm (never mind 1000nm) would be if the A320s they used for a while came from a European operator, and they were picked up and flown through Polish airspace on their way to the US.
7 billion, one nation, imagination...it's a beautiful day

Quoting ShyFlyer (Reply 2): A Google search turns up a lot of aircraft operators have run afoul of this provision.
Who has to use google? The actual notams are there and available to the public. Also why I wrote that digging through their notams is onerous due to all the airlines, each with their own notam, who are not allowed to overfly Poland for one reason or another.
Quoting zeke (Reply 3): It is for outstanding parking and passenger charges, the have a long list of airlines on the list.
When has AirTran ever scheduled service in to or out of Poland?
Quoting Mir (Reply 5): would be if the A320s they used for a while came from a European operator,
The notam is recent and I've never seen it for them before this.
