If you want cheap travel in Poland - you go by train. If you want convenience, you go LOT (they fly those routes 6x ...

How Do Airlines Source 2nd Hand Aircraft?

In Europe, I could say, most airlines sourcing 2nd hand aircraft are leased from leasing companies. Usually, new aircrafts are being leased for 10-12 years and after that time they look for another operator. So airlines usually pitch lessors to source aircraft to them.
