Great news ... although I would have tried to go 7/7 to India, splitting it e.g. 4/7 WAW-DEL and 3/7 WAW-BOM.

Let hope they get this flight timed well into their hub-waves for connections to/from EU, US, CA at WAW.

Impressive about Delhi. I wonder if this might slightly impact AI-OS in VIE, after all, they are after the same market as LO.

This was rumoured for a while, I'm glad it's semi-official, finally! And BTW, Lot used to service Delhi previously, the route was ditched in the very early 1990s, AFAIK.

For sure the 767 in the 90’s, maybe the IL62 as well before the 76 came

LOT again fails to keep up service in BUD. They cancelled ORD-BUD and sent the plane back to WAW to put it on a charter flight to MRU...
also next days JFK was cancelled - my friends had to cut their holiday 1.5 days shorter as the customer service could not find solutions and they were also very rude on the phone.

budflyer.blog.hu states, they cancelled more BUD flights in advance for january...

I had 2 complaints written to LOT last year, sent them 3 times, never got an answer! Lot has nice dreamliners but it is not really better than Ryanair...

it seems LOT cannot really operate its "base" from BUD. shame

Maybe they overextended themselves, they are growing rapidly in WAW, so maybe BUD should have waited another year or so.

That’s really disappointing and unfortunate, they had already cancelled some flights in December and now January? So the yields are not that good atleast for winter. A lot of people in Poland will complain and say I told you so to LOT for doing Political flights instead of revenue flights. I do hope LOT will fix this soon or cancel BUD as a base. With Warsaw airport reaching a deal with the Ministry of Defense on additional apron space and plans to expend the terminal I hope all Dreamliners come back to Poland. I really hope LOT will not repeat the delays and cancellations of last summer!!!

LOT is disappointing Hungarians here. Scratch that: LOT is treating Hungarians like fingernail dirt. You might as well ask the Praguers to get over a couple of old, rattling A330s from their Korean friends and fly BUD-JFK with them rather than these 787s!

So much for Morawiecki and Orbán forming an alliance against everyone else in Europe... (N.B.: I don't want to drag politics here, but still.)
In grieving remembrance of the thousands of people who lost their lives on ET-AVJ, PK-LQP, S2-AGU, CP-2933, SU-GCC, A6-FDN, EI-ETJ, D-AIPX, PK-AXC, 9M-MRD, VT-AXV and above all 9M-MRO, besides many more. Your deaths are not in vain. Safety first, always.

Ia there any chance for the MRU to be fully operated by LOT year-long in the 3 years to come? Even though Scandinavia/Eastern Europe-Mauritius market is one with great potential and with as much as 120,000 passengers travelling yearly in 2017, no direct flight is operated year-long from that region to Mauritius. There are only TUI charter flights and LOT which recently started charter flights on Rainbow Tours' behalf

and again, lot cancels flights in february 17-19 as well form BUD base. Nice timing when LCY flights start...
really low quality service how LOT operates these flights and passengers cannot really do anything as cusotmer service at LOT is horrible. They never answer.

LOT is also cancelling some longhaul flights from WAW. Unfortunately, it's unavoidable until RR issue with Dreamliners is solved. At the moment we have 2-3 planes grounded.
The RR issue should be solved by june and also new 787-9 will come.
For now LOT decided to wetlease an Air Italy A330 till end of january.
As for charter flights - they have always a priority over regular scheduled flights (for these you can re-route traffic via other hubs).

LOT is expending in Krakow! LOT will fly a 3rd rotation to Chicago during the summer months! June thru September and all flights will be on 787-9.

LOT will start Krakow to Bucharest in April 2019, 3 times weekly on Q400.

And finally a once weekly seasonal Krakow to Dubrovnik Croatia on E195, May thru September.

Some very exciting news for KRK and I think a lot of people with be pleased after pushing for more regional airport flights by LOT. The Chicago flight from KRK has been full 92% in the summers and 86% off season.

Some bad news for Bydgoszcz as LOT is cancelling/going seasonal on flights there to Ukraine.

I wonder what's their rationale behind KRK-OTP? I don't see this route lasting long, though I think it has more potential than KRK-BUD they launched and then cut.

I know a lot of the southern/Eastern Europe cities are becoming very popular again in Poland. Hopefully they have some data. Well KRK-BUD still has nonstop flights, I’m not sure if daily but they are there to support the USA connections on both sides.

What's the weight penalty on ORD-KRK? A previous CEO stated KRK's runway was too short for KRK-ORD (allegedly the 767s were weight restricted), and all that has really changed since that CEO's comments is the CEO due to the change in the political party in power. Now, he must've been wrong since KRK-ORD is operating on 787-8s, just wondering if there are any restrictions on the flights and if the -9 may face larger ones.

Yes I remember reading about that in the past. I'm not really an expert in this aspect of aviation lol, but it looks like the runwah is too short 250 meters for 767-300er and 787-9. Now is that at mtow? I'm not sure. The 787-8 was just short 50 meters. So if LOT is charging a premium on this route then it might be worth taking a bit of a weight hit to fly more people still.

With their significant growth at London-City- Warsaw 2x daily, Budpapest 2x daily and Vilnius 2x daily- could anyone see LOT possibly start a London-City-Krakow service or to any other Polish or Eastern European cities?

LOT started many new routes and with airplanes going out of service they couldn't handle it. Many delays and cancellations as 737-400s and 787-8s, issues with Q400s, were constantly dropping out of service. I just don't want LOT to overdo it this summer lol.

Nope, will be flown 12x weekly- twice on weekdays and once on weekend days- it is however a PSO service.

Prague is a possibility but is currently served by BA daily.

Would love to see LO expand more into Germany or the Nordic region but I don't see it happening. I think that for the time being they won't be adding any additional LCY routes. However, expanding in VNO is also a preemptive strike against any BT expansion there.

Well, we don't really know if there was some backdoor agreement between the two. That public call was perfectly suited for LO from what I remember.

I believe I read somewhere that this one will arrive sometime in February, next 2 in May and the 4th in October. And that’s it for now as far as current orders. Now I posted earlier that the Polish Aviation Group will be making a decision on an aircraft order in the coming months. In polish newspapers they said they will be very open to A350 too.

BT already operates five destinations out of VNO, while LO will offer five daily flights this summer. It's obvious that the market is important to both airlines. I checked online and A220 is LCY certified meaning BT could have easily operated this route.

BT has only bigger A220-300 and only the smaller A220-100 is LCY certified.

The new 787-9 was delivered and that same day flew to Toronto. It’s amazing to see that it’s such a normal now.

LOT will start flying to Bucharest and Brussels from Budapest, starting September 2 on E195 jets!

Both destinations will be double daily excluding Saturday’s.
These will be 6th and 7th LOT route from Budapest.

Seems LOT is looking at moving Ejet flying out of Warsaw as 9 more 737-Max 8 scheduled to arrive this year.

There is also Wizz Air to consider with flights to CRL. Don't know if Ryanair also flies between the two cities.

I believe I think I wrote in the 2018 thread that they will stay till end of 2019. If anything they will be used as back up for the summer.

In the article LOT said that they are working towards connections at BUD so I wouldn’t be surprised if more routes will be offered to fill North America flights and a rumored Asia flight, so that kind of competition might not affect them that much.

I wonder if they'll open any more European routes from Warsaw after they get more 737s delivered. I'm still hoping for a direct flight to Dublin...


I read in another polish aviation thread that it’s too long of a rotation to make it a decent fit in the the network.

They have been filling in gaps in their current network and with the summer high season they will definitely need all the planes they can get. LOT has been adding more vacation destinations too with Small Planet gone. But like with BUD I think they will need to add more routes starting in the fall/winter. I forgot to mention that one E-195 will be based in BUD.

I still think BRU and LCY are mostly for point to point, I doubt there are really that many passengers to connect to Krakow and Bucharest via Budapest.

I read that one too, but I thought that with the relatively large influx of short haul planes they have this year they might be able to make it work, as they'll no doubt add some extra capacity and slack to the network.
