LOT Polish Airlines Adds San Francisco Flights

Perhaps they should buy more aircraft before they announce new routes, no? Because they’re currently leasing a bunch of aircraft as they don’t have enough Dreamliners to fly their long-hauls (and some 787s are still out for repair). LOT Polish Airlines has announced their plans to fly to San Francisco as of 05 August 2020 from their hub in Warsaw. LOT’s current hubs include Warsaw… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines re-launches Kraków – New York JFK

LOT Polish Airlines announced today the re-launch of their route from Kraków to New York JFK. This route previously operated way back in the days (think 2003), but was cancelled due to a number of reasons including low demand. The situation was the same with the Kraków – Chicago route, which was also cancelled, and re-launched a few years ago. The Kraków to New York… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines: More Destinations From Kraków

LOT Polish Airlines, a Star Alliance member, is an interesting airline… from their interesting shady policies and procedures to their corrupt Rzeszów to Newark flight, the airline is a mixture of both good and bad.  While LOT doesn’t have the best Business Class product, I consider LOT’s Premium Economy to be the best in Europe – certainly much better than Lufthansa/Austrian’s or British Airways’. LOT frequently… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines Bookable with Aeroplan Again

Aeroplan, Air Canada’s frequent flyer programme, is one of my favourites when it comes to Star Alliance award redemptions. Aeroplan is incredibly generous when it comes to routing rules – you can have two stopovers in addition to a destination on round-trip award tickets, and with generous maximum permitted mileage, you can even create a mini-RTW with a simple round-trip booking. Furthermore, Aeroplan is an… Read More

Aeroplan’s Newest “Glitch”: LOT Polish Airlines Not Bookable

Here we go again… honestly, Aeroplan knows they will be gone soon so why are they becoming worse and worse as they die? I don’t get it. Aeroplan used to be one of my favourite frequent flyer programmes, but now, I wouldn’t consider them in the top rankings. Ever since the announcement of the Air Canada and Aeroplan breakup, Aeroplan has been trying to tell… Read More

Canada to Europe Round-Trip for 20k SPG Points

My favourite frequent flyer programme is Miles & More. While the programme does impose fuel surcharges, those can often be lowered if you’re strategic about which routes you book. Furthermore, Miles & More allows anyone to book Lufthansa First Class whenever you want before departure (otherwise it is only released 14 days before departure to partner airlines). Currently, you can redeem 25k Miles & More… Read More

LOT Polish Airlines Elite Club Lounge Warsaw

Two Days in Warsaw – Introduction Inside of the LOT Business Lounge Polonez, is a ‘secret’ Elite Club Lounge which is available to Star Gold members.
