There have been few discount fares to Europe this past week for fall travel, with the exception of Norwegian, Aeroflot and Ukrainian Airlines, which is why LOT Polish Airlines jumped out at me when I saw they have some fares today in the $400s from JFK to Europe in the fall.

There are many routes on sale. LOT has lower fares to Copenhagen at $499 round trip than Norwegian Airlines for some dates.

Take note that LOT Polish Airlines follows the recent industry trend of making it difficult to find the airline booking class associated with different fares. It took many links and luck to spot the fare conditions describing this as LOT Polish economy L booking class, which earns 25% miles in United Mileage Plus.

All flights route through Warsaw.

  • JFK-WAW = 8,534 miles round trip, earns 2,133 miles in United Mileage Plus.
  • ORD-WAW = 9,370 miles round trip, earns 2,342 miles in United Mileage Plus.

I found a business class amenities cloth bag from a LOT Polish flight my wife took in 2007. I almost tossed it out during our spring house cleaning this Memorial holiday weekend, then pulled it out of the dump pile and filled it with old business cards I had collected and wanted to keep. I’ll keep the cards for a while longer. Many of those names on the business cards had little meaning at the time I was given them. Some are now more popular travel writers and higher level business executives. The LOT Polish bag in and of itself is a cheap travel souvenir, possibly worthy of discard, but I think back to how proud I was when Kelley took that reward flight to Warsaw on her own. To date, Poland is the only country Kelley has visited that I have not been. Travel memories and little souvenirs to refresh those memories enrich our lives.
