Star Alliance member LOT Polish Airlines offers some interesting summer destinations with departure from Wrocław. In August and September 2020, you can fly nonstop to Barcelona, Kavala and Thessaloniki. Sadly, a checked bag is not included in this price.
LOT uses Embraer 170 or 190 aircraft on this flight. These planes feature a 2-2 seating in economy class, with a rather generous 79 cm seat pitch.
Search & Book
We were not able to find the fare rules for these tickets. They show scattered availability in July, August and September 2020 and are mainly available for weekend departues.
We recommend using Google Flights (instructions) to find suiting travel dates. You can enter them in our flight search to find the cheapest tickets that online travel agencies offer or book directly via LOT. We recommend doing the latter, especially when travelling with checked bags.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
