LOT Polish B787-8 Dreamliners to get brand new seats

In a major development for LOT Polish, the airline has announced that it will be installing brand new seats on its Boeing B787-8 Dreamliners.

Brand-new Business Class seats

The entire cabin of the Boeing 787 fleet will be equipped with new seats from RECARO Aircraft Seating. The Business Class seats will be the CL6720 model seats, the Premium Economy Class seats will be the PL3530 model seats and the Economy Class seats will be the CL3810 model seats.

LOT Business Class will be in 1-2-1 configuration. This will be the first time that every passenger in LOT Business Class will have direct aisle access as the current LOT Business Class is in a 2-2-2 configuration. Other features of the new Business Class seat include a sliding door for enhanced privacy, a 17.3-inch 4K inflight entertainment screen, a wireless charger, a Universal Power Socket, USB-C ports and space for storing small as well as large items seperately.

The new cabin space in all classes is inspired by the Polish landscape. Vibrant, deep blues emanate perfectly from the LOT brand, while the addition of copper alludes to the warmth of the Polish sun. The design follows business trends, however, as one of the oldest and most recognisable Polish brands in the world, we do not forget to include touches from our cultural heritage.

said Izabela Leszczyńska, Director of Product Development and Customer Experience Department, LOT Polish Airlines.

New Premium Economy and Economy Class seats

The new Premium Economy seats will have more space for personal items, a 13.3-inch 4K inflight entertainment screen, Universal Power Sockets and USB-C ports.

By choosing RECARO Aircraft Seating as the exclusive supplier of seats for our wide-body fleet, we prioritised passenger comfort and innovation. Our partnership marks a milestone for both LOT Polish Airlines and RECARO, with whom we are working on a wide-body aircraft cabin design for the first time. The CL6720, PL3530 and CL3810 series seats materialise our commitment to providing comfortable travel experience in all classes. We are confident that this collaboration will establish new standards and reflect our dedication to making the journey even better for passengers.

Other details

Passengers travelling in all classes will have the opportunity to connect their headsets to the in-flight entertainment system using Bluetooth, something which is increasingly becoming common across premium airlines.

The entertainment system will be supplied by Safran Passenger Innovations, a California-based company. LOT passengers travelling on long-haul routes will be able to benefit from wireless Internet access aboard all of the LOT Polish Airlines wide-body aircrafts. Internet connectivity will be provided by Viasat, offering global coverage.

This will be a brand new quality of travel – from boarding and the overall experience, to the comfort of the seats and the enjoyment of the in-flight entertainment, right down to the tiny details that we hope our passengers will appreciate. We are looking forward to welcoming you to this experience.

Izabela Leszczyńska added.

Seats of the CL3810 series (LOT Economy Class) will be manufactured at the factory in Poland. LOT Polish Airlines and Recaro cooperation is a long-term one, as the company will be supplying seats for all wide-body aircrafts’ including those that will join Polish flag carrier’s fleet in the future.

In the first place, the retrofit will cover Boeing B787-8 Dreamliner fleet. Passengers will be able to board LOT Polish Airlines aircraft with a completely modernised cabin in 2026.
