I've applauded the quality of LOT pilots on here several times before, but that doesn't seem to matter to American idiots who like moaning about the food, or love complaining about customer service because they wouldn't change their non-refundable ticket.
I'm convinced that LOT pilots are actually very very well trained - the sheer skill of this landing (and watching it several times - look how little the plane bumped upon landing!) says it all. Obviously the food and service isn't to American standards - I mean, how dare they serve Polish food while being merely polite?
And as for the moaning about non-refundable tickets - obviously, American carriers would refund a non-refundable ticket.....or maybe not. But at least they can pretend that they would.
There's certainly a reason why LOT and not the military handles VIP flights these days.
The report states that one person was taken to hospital, but that's still not much. Bet there's lots of bruised LOT-hating American egos though :)
One person is absolutely nothing given the circumstances, and they could easily have injured themselves on the slides (common, apparently).
The plane was 14.5 years old and flew intercontinental flights, so not old at all. And it's exceptionally rare for this sort of thing to happen.
