LOT polish's name

As I know a little bit of polish, I know that the word “LOT” means “FLIGHT” in polish. So LOT polish airways is actually FLIGHT polish airways. Wierd isn’t it?

not really

LOT stands for something I think…

Look at this:


Answering questions is my job (not actually)

Not for me…Copa means “Compañía Panameña de Aviación”. The Spanish word “copa” in English is “cup”. And both cases doesn’t really bother me.

Actually, it does mean flight. There is no other meaning for it.

No, LOT does mean flight, but the name is short for some long thing, which is abreviated to LOT. (Most likely on purpose)

It stands for Polskie Linie Lotnicze.

Delta or In Greek Δ is the fourth letter in the Greek alphabet.

I think @Damian is interested in LOT so he might be able to provide info.

If I tagged the wrong person (there’s someone around here who loves LOT), sorry

Luft in German means Air and Hansa’s definition is “a league originally constituted of merchants of various free German cities dealing abroad in the medieval period and later of the cities themselves and organized to secure greater safety and privileges in trading” source Merriam-Webster dictionary.

Right person :)

The Polish name for it is “Polskie Linie Lotniczne” which was found on the older livery, now it’s just in English which essentially translates to Polish Airlines. LOT is derived from “lotniczne.” But yes, LOT alone means flight.

I believe the older callsign used to be “Pollot” hence “POLskie linie LOTniczne.”

I kind of like that 767 in the old livery, but nice explanation.
