Hello and welcome to my 1st time on the 787 on the way to Warsaw!

The flights:

TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) -> FRA (Frankfurt, Germany) LH A321 Economy
FRA (Frankfurt, Germany) -> MCO (Orlando, FL, USA) LH B744 Economy
MCO (Orlando, FL, USA) -> EWR (Newark, NJ, USA) UA B738 EconomyPlus link
JFK (New York, NY, USA) -> WAW (Warsaw, Poland) LO B788 Economy (YOU ARE HERE! / VOUS ETES ICI!)
KTW (Katowice, Poland) -> TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel) E4 B738 Economy

I left my family in New York and I flew alone to meet friends in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. I used to fly with my family back to TLV with UA , but I had to change my direction to Warsaw.
One way ticket with Norwegian with 7 hours layover in Stockholm and without baggage cost 298 $, with TAP via Lisbon includes 6 hours of connection costs 313 $.
At the end, I've decided to change my ticket with UA's award miles, I've got 55K miles back (30K comapred to 85K for TLV), and 30$ tax return.
It is an oppertunity to try a new type of a pland and a new airline.

I took the AirTrain for terminal 7, the terminal that LOT Polish Airlines uses:

Check in area, the check in counter was suprise when she saw my passport, she thought that I am flying to Portugal via Poland (I have a Portugese passport), she got relaxed when I told her that I am going to visit Warsaw :

The dinner, there was a choice between lamb, potatoes and vegetables or chicken with rice. I chose the lamb option which was good, but not as sams as LH or TK. The tray table is too small for the dinner tray:

The cabin crew closed the automatical windows for offering some sleep for the passengers:

I felt asleep and I missed the duty-free that has some good prices.
I woke up after passing Iceland, I tried to watch a movie but I felt asleep again and woke up again over Norway:
