Re: LOT News Thread - 2020

If you trim out the damp/wet/moist/ACMI leased frames (and exclude the ERJs as they're stored), you actually end up with: Q400 E170/175/190/195 737-3/4/5/800/MAX-8 787-8/9 Really not a very diverse fleet as it stands! LOT doesn't have any -300 or -500s. The -300 is opb. Getjet LY-GGC, One -400 is a...

LOT is launching Ostrava from WAW effective 30/03/20. Will be 5 times a week with DH4/E70/E75.
Apart from Ryanair's flights to Stansted, these will be the only scheduled passenger flights from this airport.

Re: LOT Polish international growth

If they want to have a hub to Asia, they should open new short-haul destinations. For instance, in Spain they only offer flights to MAD and BCN. Many of their competitors like Turkish or Aeroflot already fly to second-tier cities like AGP, ALC, SVQ, BIO or VLC. I reckon the issue is strong low-cost...

They will lose tons of money on this. Mark my words. I am afraid that you are very right. They are squeezed from all sides and rely on low yielding O&D traffic. Warsaw is not well located for any hub, so any transfer passenger is only to seek the very cheapest option. To succeed, they need very...

I like them, they serve a purpose. Whilst the ATRs might be a better CASM option, the Q400s are jet fast and make routes like WAW-LUZ viable. It's actually quicker than the bus or train! They do look nice in the new livery too... Speed and comfort are great for a turboprop but the Q400’s are quite ...
