MILESTONE: LOT Polish Airline Celebrates 40 Years of New York-Warsaw Travel

40 Guests Win Free Roundtrip Premium Economy Tickets to Poland

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.
