The airport in Warsaw has been recently expanding and actually looks quite nice now compared to what it looked like a couple of years ago. I took an Uber from my hotel to the airport and it cost ~$6 USD, which was super cheap and generally taxis don’t cost a lot of money in Poland and therefore the ~25 minute ride was super cheap.
LOT recently opened a special premium check-in area for Star Gold, Business, and First class passengers, however the area is nothing special and just consists of a normal check-in area surrounded by a fancy wooden ‘fence’ with an agent guarding the entrance. I had to show him my Senator card before he let me in.
Check-in was super simple and I was informed that there had been an aircraft change from an ancient B737 to a newer E195, so technically the equipment was ‘upgraded’. Next to the premium check-in area is a Star Gold fast track security area, which didn’t have any queues and therefore I cleared security in less than ten seconds and made my way over to LOT’s only Business Lounge, Polonez.
The lounge feels super small since there is a ton of unnecessary furniture everywhere that blocks certain areas. There is however plenty of seating areas such as regular chairs and couches.
The food spread consisted of chocolate, cookies, heated snacks, finger sandwiches, soup, salads, etc. The food selection was actually quite nice, there was also various types of alcoholic beverages.
Overall, the LOT Polish Airlines Business Lounge Polonez in Warsaw is a comfortable place to relax and have some snacks. There is also a fake waterfall on one side of the wall, although I think it distracts much more than it actually calms you down. There is also a special Elite Club Lounge inside of this lounge which is accessible to Star Gold members, a review of that one is up next!
