LOT Polish Airlines converted four Embraer 170 options from its original contract to four firm orders for 175s. Deliveries of the 82-passenger aircraft are scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2006. LOT was the first carrier in Europe to operate the Embraer 170, which went into service in March 2004, and it recently took delivery of its 10th. It also flies 14 ERJ-145s. It retains seven options for 170s that could be converted to 175s, 190s or 195s.
