The new aircraft will replace the leased LOT E175s and the one lost in the fatal accident. Would be interesting to see the interior fitment once it's out of completions.

When installed, Otto The Automatic Pilot will not make such stupid CFIT errors. There is nothing to worry about.

Otto has a good chance of being deflated by a drunk cigar waving VIP.
( not much different to the potato smashing IL crash.)
