Embraer E175 SP-LIE (c/n 17000153) is one of 12 E175s in LOT’s fleet. The aircraft was repainted as a retrojet in 2014 and now wears the livery the LOT fleet wore from 1945 to 1973.
The Embraer E-Jet forms the backbone of LOT’S short and medium haul fleet. Here E170 SP-LDE (c/n 17000029) departs Warsaw.
Icelandair is introducing two Boeing 767-300s to provide extra capacity. One of these aircraft, TF-ISO (c/n 29388, previously EI-UNC), is seen here following repainting by Air Livery at Manchester last year.
Six 787-8s are used by LOT, including SP-LRB (c/n 37894). Two more are due for delivery, but handover of the seventh example has been delayed to 2017.
One of the European Commission’s restrictions against LOT was that it was not allowed to open new routes. That has now lifted but there remains uncertainty around the airline’s growth plans. Here 787-8 SP-LRD (c/n 35941) is photographed at Warsaw.

Boeing 757-236 TF-FIU (c/n 26243) is one of 26 757s used by Icelandair. With its distinctive paint scheme depicting the Northern Lights, this aircraft has become a flagship for the airline in its role offering connections between Europe and North America via Iceland.

LOT has long wanted to replace its three ageing Boeing 737-400s, including SP-LLE (c/n 27914). The airline needs Airbus A320 or 737-sized aircraft to transfer passengers between key markets and its Warsaw hub.
Air France operated 747s for 46 years. Here 747-400 F-GEXB (c/n 24155) is pictured at Montreal in 2012. The airline’s last Jumbo, F-GITJ (c/n 32871), was phased out in January 2016, continuing an ongoing trend for 747-400s to be retired.
Analysts say that for British Airways continuing to operate 747s from ist busy Heathrow hub makes sense, because of capital expenditure savings the carrier gets from operating them rather than buying new aircraft.
The British Airways Super High-J cabin configuration for its Jumbo fleet involves adding 16 more seats in business class.
Boeing 737 MAX 8s and MAX 9s will arrive into the Icelandair fleet from 2018. The airline plans to use them to supplement its 757s.
