Singapore Airlines incoming A350-900 and B787-10 are replacing the carrier's B777-200ER.  The aircraft will be handed back to Boeing's leasing company, Boeing Capital Corporation. The expectation is that LOT Polish will receive its aircraft in June of 2020. 

Singapore AIrlines has multiple configurations for their 777-200ER's.  One of them has 271 seats with 26 business class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration and 245 economy class seats in a 3-3-3 configuration.  Another has a configuration with 266 seats with 38 business class seats in a 2-2-2 configuration and 228 economy seats in a 3-3-3 configuration.  However, LOT Polish may streamline the configuration with their current 787 which has a 2-2-2 business class, a 2-3-2 premium economy, and a 3-3-3 economy.

Currently, LOT Polish is slated to take deliveries of two 787-9's in 2020.  LOT Polish currently has 8 Boeing 787-8 and 7 Boeing 787-9's. However, LOT Polish is currently facing 787 engine issues which forces them to wet lease aircraft.  The carrier is currently leasing Air Belgium A340's which are mainly used to fly to New York-JFK, Toronto-Pearson, and Newark.

Also, LOT Polish is slated to add two new routes due to their new aircraft arrivals in 2020, San Francisco and Washington-Dulles.  Both will launch on August 5th 4x weekly and June 2nd 3x weekly respectfully.  

LOT Polish has denied the news which was started after rumors of the carrier training crews for the B777.
