From New York to Warsaw under 7 hours

On October 31 2023, a Boeing 787-9 (SP-LRH) operated by LOT Polish Airlines departed on a flight from Newark at 03:29 UTC and landed in Warsaw at 10:40 UTC.

During this journey, the Dreamliner achieved a top speed of 1230 km/h, resulting in a remarkably short flight duration of just 6 hours and 55 minutes. The estimated flight time is 8 hours and 10 minutes. The expedited travel time was attributed to a powerful jet stream, which is a swiftly moving high-altitude air current that carries substantial air masses from west to east within the Earth’s atmosphere.
