LOT Polish Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The Polish carrier is the first European airline to take delivery of the 787.

LOT will operate the 787 on short-haul flights across Europe in December, and will introduce the Dreamliner on its long-haul passenger service from Warsaw to Chicago in January 2013.

LOT will also use the 787 to operate routes from Warsaw to New York, Toronto and Beijing.

"This is a historic moment for LOT," said Marcin Pirog, chief executive officer of LOT. "I am convinced that the addition of the Dreamliner to the fleet of one of the world's oldest airlines is a crucial moment that will launch a new era of European aviation. I believe it is also the beginning of an exciting journey for LOT with the most modern passenger airplane in the world."

The cabin is configured with 18 Elite Club seats (Business Class), 21 Premium Club seats (Premium Economy) and 213 seats in Economy Class.

This delivery is the first of eight Dreamliners that LOT has on order.
