AA's advertising causes controversy in Poland

AA's "Summer 2020 Route Announcement" ad has caused controversy in Poland due to its choice of promoting the new KRK destination with vodka. Translated parts of an article from Business Insider : "The world's biggest airline, American Airlines, is promoting its new route between Chica...

Re: LOT News Thread - 2019

Any LOT experts have thoughts on if they will start WAW-IAD? They're the only European Star Alliance airline that flies transatlantic and doesn't serve IAD.

My take is that you have an outdated view. PRG, BUD and surprise surprise Dubrovnik have been successful. On the other hand it looks like BLQ and TXL won't return next summer. If you ask me, KRK is a destination that belongs among that first group. US tourism in Kraków is booming, the market is und...
