So, it was the 23th August, and I need to get back to London by 5th of September. I look around a little bit and I find the cheapest overall choice to be LOT Polish Airlines. So I decide to book the flight for £81 with seats included.
Left the house at 12:50pm on my 2 hour drive to Warsaw Chopin Airport, the biggest and most used airport in Poland.
It seemed to be a good airport, was clean and modern and security was efficient.
I did some plane spotting, the huge windows at Warsaw make it a breeze.
Eventually, 15:30 came around. The flight was delayed by 30 minutes or so but this wasn't terrible.
Boarding eventually started at a gate with a jet-bridge but sadly led us to a bus-boarding gate.
Upon boarding the aircraft, there was a swarm of people and made it hard to board, however eventually we all got onboard. I wonder why we could not have just used the jet-bridge :(
Then we took off for the 2 hour journey West to Heathrow! The aircraft buzzed out of Warsaw and took quite a steep climb out of the sunny weather. Video Link
Here was the 15 year old Boeing 737-800s cabin. It was decent and I have no complaints with it although the over-head bins could be bigger and the cabin could be more modernised, it wasn't terrible in all honesty. The legroom was good too!
Now meal service came around, I paid £2.50 for everything in this picture. The Mini Wafer and Tea were free and the sandwich was £2.50 and consisted of Ham, lettuce and pickles. It was honestly one of the best sandwiches I had on a plane in a while, so LOT's catering is very good as far as is. LOT utilise the DO&CO catering which is quite good in itself.
However when I asked for another tea one crew member seemed not to be so happy and asked me "why I didn't take one before" (which I clearly did) However that is really the only complaint I have, most the crew members were very nice and happy to do their job.
More context of the sandwich :P
Here was LOT's fleet back in September of 2019, and the international route map below. LOT has a decent variety of both.
After quite an un-eventful but turbulent flight, we started our descent into London Heathrow, 20 minutes early!
We have had an amazing approach into runway 27L, passing past all the London skyscrapers.
At 5:01PM, we have touched down on the runway 27L at London Heathrow which was quite a "normal" landing, firm but not hard. Video link
Here we have parked right next to this HUGE Turkish 777-300ER right next to us, and that will conclude this trip report! It was my first one here and I hope it was good enough. Thank you for reading this :)
In all, not a bad airline. £80 for a flight to London on a main carrier! No Wi-Fi though, they should invest on that sometime soon.
