Anyone flown Eurolot.com lately? Amsterdam to Gdansk flight option

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to nail down a trip to Poland and Czech Republic for next month. The most optimal itinerary seems to start in Gdansk. I figured I could fly into Warsaw via Amsterdam and then fly on to Gdansk. Then I figured out I could actually just fly directly from Amsterdam to Gdansk and just skip Warsaw. Both flights are operated by Eurolot.com . (Looks like both are prop planes - not ideal but acceptable, I guess, given the alternatives.)

The option to skip Warsaw would save me probably six hours (and one extra take-off/landing) but is a tad risky: I'd have 2:05 to make my connection in Amsterdam. That's well over the legal connection time at Schiphol Airport there, so if everything is on time or even just slightly delayed I should be OK. Of course, delays happen. Unfortunately, if I miss the Eurolot flight on this Friday morning, the next one isn't til Monday morning! Still, I could probably get to Gdansk late the same day by booking a last-minute connection on LOT via Warsaw (after all!). I have travel delay insurance that should cover most of the cost of the expensive last-minute flight - assuming it's not sold out of course. At worst, I should be able to do the same Saturday morning and just get to Gdansk a day late. I'd planned three days there to start; I'd be down to two. Not the end of the world.

I'm planning to do carry-ons on the big Delta jet to Amsterdam (done it twice before, no problem). I assume on the Eurolot plane I'd be able carry on my small "personal item" and have to check one of the bags - hopefully at the gate? I know sometimes on these small planes you put your big bags on a cart next to the plane as you board. I'd not want to have to go back to the check-in desk to check it or something. Sound OK?

Otherwise, any recent experiences flying this airline?

Yes, I know it's safer to stay overnight in Warsaw or Amsterdam for a night instead of doing this connection, but I'm considering giving it a try...
