LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW) on an extraordinary Sunday afternoon. As part of LOT's 787 family of aircraft (model eight and nines), this Dreamliner was delivered to the company in June 2017 and is one of eight 787-8s in a total fleet of 14 Dreamliners — the other six are 787-9s. Furthermore, the bulk of LOT Polish Airlines’ fleet consists primarily of Boeing 737 aircraft for short haul flights, with the entirety of their long haul fleet originating from American manufacturer and designer Boeing. In regards to the Boeing Dreamliner, it is noteworthy that the tail height, 17 metres, and wingspan, 60 metres, is shared between all models of the aircraft (787-8s, 787-9s, and 787-10s), despite significant variance in size and passenger capacity throughout. Of note, LOT Polish Airlines has the distinction of being the first European operator of the 787-8 Dreamliner, which provides a range in excess of 13 600 km to the airline, allowing the company to fly round trip from Poland's capital to Toronto... almost. With the nine and eight models of LOT's Dreamliners in our collection, we eagerly look forward to adding the balance of LOT's other fleet members in the future. Enjoy!
