Background
I couldn't resists "First minute promotion" and booked ticket for first available dates. This was my first visit in Poland and first flight with LOT. Luckily for me SPLTA decided to show me around the airport.

Hi Eco,

nice short report. Good to hear you met SPLTA! And nice to see you got SP-LDC in special colors - it used to wear Star Alliance colors before.

Cheers for the nice TR.
Good to see LOT again, I am looking forward to trying them in November when I go to Warsaw.
Glad you got to meet SPLTA - hopefully I will too  
Sofia terminal looks quite empty - is there much happening there?

Hi eco,

Thanks for this short report on your travels to WAW. You sure got 2 exotic birds, a rare E175 and a special colored E170. I'm glad you had a nice meet with fellow a.netter SPLTA, I'm sure he showed you the right way in Warsaw.

Zdrasti eco,

Very nice TR once more. It's great to see SOF in so many TRs lately (mainly thanks to you).

I have been very close to travel between SOF and WAW on LOT on a few occasions (as part of an itinerary that begun and ended at ORD) but at the end I always seem to find a better alternative in terms of layovers. Thank you for providing us with an insight about this particular route. It seemed like a very pleasurable experience.

So the "new menu inspired by a top chef" was a cheese sandwich and a chocolate bar ? :p

Hi A. !

Poland and LOT are both new to me as well so your report gives the idea what to expect
when making the first trip to Poland and maybe with LOT.
And the pics are really good.

Hello eco,

It's always good to see report covering home airport/ carrier. It's a bit different this time, as we have already talked about your flights. Anyway, a nice, short story, thanks for sharing.

To be honest the sandwiches look pretty similar to the old ones. There are more noticeable changes in Business Class menu, I believe.

It was my pleasure to show you around. Too bad the weather was not the best to say the least. Hopefully it's better during your next visit, so you could take better shots.

Glad you liked your short visit to Warsaw or WAW actually. Again, I hope the weather will be better the next time, as you plan to visit the city as well.

You're welcome. It was great to meet and have a really interesting chat with you.

Best regards,

Hi, A.,

pretty nice pictures, well done.

He´s definitely the perfect companion for a visit around WAW, more to come soon from my hand, you know.

Congrats to catch SP-LIA, like PH mentioned it´s a very rare E75, some more pictures with this bird coming also soon.

Greetings,

Thank you all for your comments, to be honest this trip report is too short and simple for me (that's way I didn't post my A.net meeting trip report here) but I promised to write something. I will have 13 flights with LOT in less than month and this will be perfect opportunity to get better impression on LOT and to write something way better. Plus if everything goes as it was planned there will be special trip report on Jet air and Jetisfaction. Any info about this two airlines will be very useful to me.

I didn't know.

Good Cheese and tomatoes sandwich much better then LH's.

It will be even more emptier this winter because 3 airlines canceled their flights to Sofia.

We should ask SPLTA.

On my back flight there were some passengers from USA so why don't you try them?

You won't regret. I am really impressed how clean and well organized is Warsaw.

Hi Eco,

really a nice trip report and the LOT flights seem to have been quite nice with also some enjoyable catering.

Must make it on one of those bigger Embraer Jets soon only having flown the smaller ERJ 145 so far.
