A total of 186 BL3710 economy class seats will be produced for LOT. According to Milczarski, the delivery of the aircraft fully equipped with Recaro seats is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.
“We are very proud of this first order from LOT,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder of Recaro Aircraft Seating. “Especially when you have a Polish production site for aircraft seats and now for dress covers as well, an order from the national airline represents an outstanding vote of recognition in our performance.”
