One can also argue that Turks kept on fantasizing about becoming the next DXB, no one seemed to care about that.
Just because WAW isn't IST doesn't mean it can't be a respectable hub for its own region. After all, LO did record a profit last year. No need for such negativity coming from your side. I think it's respectable what they are trying to do.
TK's business model cannot be replicated in WAW. Vastly different population with marginal domestic travel, disadvantagous geographical position to link anything else other than Eastern Europe with North America and lack of O&D to and from WAW which is partly a result of marginal immigration to Poland and party because Warsaw isn't a trade hub the size of Istanbul.
What are you going on about? You are the only one who is obsessing about Poles wanting to recreate what TK has done in Istanbul. From what I know they never said such a thing and they are expanding to markets where there is enough demand to fill seats either with diaspora or with transfer passengers. Look at LO's network especially to secondary European cities and you will see that a lot of them are successful because they managed to create and stimulate demand. Unless you really believe there is enough O&D demand for three, four daily flights from Warsaw to Budapest, Bucharest, Sofia...
Furthermore, even if Poles were obsessing about any aviation model why should it be TK when they are a recent player in this sort of game? Airlines such as British Airways, Lufthansa, SAS, Icelandair, KLM, Iberia... have been doing it for a much longer period of time. In addition to that, I believe LO was after transfer passengers for a long time now, even during the Cold War Era.
Finally, like I wrote earlier, LO managed to record a profit so they seem to be know what they are doing.
