Flight review – LOT Business Class, Stockholm – Warsaw

After my summer tour of Scandinavia, it was time to head off on my long-haul winter travels.

But first, there was the short connection to Warsaw in LOT Polish Airlines’ Business Class.

LOT uses the SAS Norrsken Lounge in Stockholm. However, as this was an early morning flight and I had already had breakfast at my hotel, I decided to skip this in favour of a quick transit through the airport.

Boarding was swift and efficient and I soon found myself settled in.

Business Class on this Embraer 195 was economy seating in a 2-2 configuration, with one of each pair kept free. I found this comfortable enough for the short flight.

Although this flight was only 90 minutes, there was time for a pretty well varied breakfast selection.

On approach to Warsaw, we circled over a blanket of very low and heavy cloud for around 15 minutes.

Fortunately we were able to land in Warsaw on time and in plenty of time for the next leg of my winter season, which sees me heading to Chicago and a 7,000 mile US roadtrip.

Destination guide – Gothenburg, Sweden

Sweden’s second city of Gothenburg is often overlooked in favour of the country’s capital of Stockholm.

In my view, this is a shame because Gothenburg is a very pleasant place to spend a relaxed city break.

I started my visit with a one-hour sightseeing cruise.

Gothenburg has a rich nautical history and a cruise along the Göta Älv river showcases the city’s past and present.

I followed that up with a visit to the Horticultural Society Gardens and a pleasant riverside stroll.

Gothenburg is a very easy city to navigate. I do not recommend renting a car, as parking is very expensive and the public transport is efficient and economical.

I chose simply to walk nearly everywhere, as the city is very compact and has some very scenic walking paths.

In conclusion, Gothenburg is a relaxing and picturesque option for a short city break, or to combine with a visit to Stockholm or Copenhagen.
