Mamma Mia!

It’s hard to believe, but LOT’s 787 fleet has now carried more than half a million people. And to celebrate, the airline had some fun with a very unsuspecting passenger.


As the 500,000th passenger checked in for his flight, a flash mob performed songs from the musical “Mamma Mia!” right in the middle of Warsaw Chopin Airport. Whether you’re a fan of ABBA or not, the video below is a must-see.

Congratulations to LOT and their lucky passenger. By the way, the 787 fleet has now flown more than 31 million passengers in total.

Greatest aviation video ever. Wish US airlines would loosen up and do some of the same. Way to celebrate the success of the 787!

Randy, can hardly wait to show this LOT MamaMia celebration video to my team of 787 delivery inspectors. Sometimes we are so steeped in the tempo and urgentcy of our delivery tasks that we can't see how freeking excited people, our customers, are about the wonderous and yes magical product we build! Wow!
