LOT Polish Airlines operates a number of charter flights from Warsaw to various holiday destinations such as Bali, Bangkok, Cuba, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, etc. with their Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring Business Class, Premium Economy Class, and Economy Class. Most passengers are booked through Polish travel agencies in Economy Class and therefore often the Premium cabins are empty. YouHaveBeenUpgraded notes there is currently a great fare from Warsaw to Cancun in LOT Business Class for just €475 one-way.

LOT’s 787 Business Class is in a 2-2-2 lie-flat configuration and because LOT only has 787s, there is no chance of an equipment swap that would result in a different seat than you expect. Positioning to Warsaw from Europe is easy on either LOT or low-cost carriers for as low as €15 from select German cities. While the fare is a great deal, keep in mind that charter flights earn absolutely no miles with any Star Alliance frequent flyer programme – even Miles & More.

How is LOT 787 Business Class? It is okay. Yes, it isn’t SWISS or Austrian, but it is still decent and for a price this low to Cancun, it can be worth it to simply fly to Cancun for a few days in Business Class. You do have to find your own return flight back to Europe, but that isn’t too hard as there are many flights from Cancun to Europe via North America. I need to be in America soon and am currently in Poland, so I’m really thinking about buying this ticket to “position” myself to North America and then just buy a cheap ticket to the USA from Cancun…
