Back in March, I wrote a post titled, “Big Beautiful Dolls” highlighting some of the upcoming Boeing 787 Dreamliner deliveries, and among them, I reported how LOT Polish Airlines intends to deploy one of its initial deliveries on its popular Chicago O’Hare – Warsaw route this winter. This will be the first 787 flight announced to date that will be flying into my current city of residence, which is very exciting news for an aviation junkie like me.
However, to make the news even more exciting, I discovered today that the inaugural route will launch on January 16th, which is my birthday! Although I don’t have confirmed plans to fly it, I thought it would be fun to take a poll to see how many people would ever consider going along with yours truly as a companion.
