Ouch Lindy, that's pretty rough. While I admire your wise and sagacious comments, no doubt gained from your intellectually stimulating experience--dare I say, education(?)--working as a ramper at IAD
, some how I doubt that the 'secret,' as you so eloquently and graciously refer to it, to low-cost air fare in Poland is the way you describe it.
SPLOBKrakow, in my humble opinion (beware, I am not as enlightened as others; for I hold no Ph.d from the University of IAD
), I would think that there is room for both LOT and Air Polonia to compete in the expanding market for air travel in and around Poland. According to this site, LOT's load factor increased by 8% and set record load lelvels as well as the number of passengers carried in 2002. Besides, as Poland continues to develop a stronger economy, I can't help but comment that a little competition, if that's the way LOT views it, is good for the capitalist soul...
