Last night LOT Polish Airlines celebrated its 40th anniversary of flying between JFK-New York and Warsaw in high-style at the Grand Hyatt New York’s Empire Ballroom in midtown Manhattan. Guests were treated to serving stations for a sumptuous roast, classy side dishes and hor d’oeuvres.
North American Sales Director Frank Joost led the audience through the evening with LOT’s new promotional video, a history of the Airlines and a video detailing the features of LOT’s new fleet of B-787 Dreamliners.
LOT’s flight crew offered guests a chance to experience the full-reclining position of the seating offered in Business Class. The eighteen seats in the Elite Club section can be set to a lying position – allowing the traveler a comfortable complete sleep in preparation for meetings upon arrival.
CEO Sebastian Mikosz greeted the audience and relayed exciting plans and prospects in the future of the Airlines.
A special 40th anniversary fare promotion available through October 11 was unveiled (http://pajtoday.blogspot.com/2013/10/travel-lot-celebrates-with-big-winter.html). Through a random drawing 40 lucky guests who left business cards in a bowl upon entrance, received a free roundtrip ticket in the new Premium Economy section.
An anniversary cake was cut and guests departed with gift bags of products from Poland’s Inglot cosmetics line which has a boutique in New York’s Times Square.
