I'm happy to share with you my impressions from the flight to Copenhagen I made on the 20th of May with LOT Polish Airlines. It was quite a long time (a year I think) I haven't flown onboard LO and was a little bit curious as some visual changes (e.g. new safety cards) have been introduced since then. I chose my flight back to be onboard SAS to try both carriers operating on this route.
Warsaw airport was quite calm that morning with standard unfriendly and unhappy security control (the good thing is their contract has been cancelled and the company responsible for security control will soon be replaced by another, hopefully more friendly and polite). Anyway we passed quickly through bag drop point and security and had plenty of time before our boarding started.
We arrived to the gate to find out there was still to depart a LO flight to Munich scheduled to leave at 7:20 but it seemed the E-175 had some technical failure
Finally our gate has been changed, the E-175 was taken from the gate and replaced with another one that has just arrived from its previous flight. As a result our E-175 was replaced by an E-195. LOT launched many new destinations lately and reactivated some of the old ones using all of its fleet and having almost no spare aircraft resulting in many delays, cancellations and replacements.

Our flight was delayed, not more than 35 minutes, yet still there were many transit passengers anxious about their connecting flights from CPH. Finally the catering for our flight was loaded and we got on board.
My seat was 7D with good window view and standard legroom for LOT E-jets.
There were 3 FAs on this flight, one senior female FA and two young male FAs. The crew generally made good impression, especially the boys that took care of the economy cabin were very polite and friendly.
There was a socket under every seat, first time I saw it on E-195. It may sound strange but I'm not a big fan of E-jets as their cabin is to narrow for me and every turbulence can be felt twice as strong as onboard A320 or B737. Anyway it is better to fly a bigger E-195 than a regular E-175 that was originally scheduled for this flight.

The seat pocket content
The service in economy class is a chocolate bar with a glass of water. I took an additional cup of tea for 1,5 euro (tea is free of charge only in the winter).

Welcome to Copenhagen
There was quite a long walk before we reached the baggage claim area with some possibilities of taking photos of SAS and DAT aircrafts
The good thing was that when we arrived to our belt, our luggage arrived within 2-3 minutes
Warsaw - WAW
Copenhagen - CPH
It was a nice short flight with LOT that despite the initial delay left quite good impressions. Even though I don't like E-jets very much, I had a nice stay on board and enjoyed my flight.
