We are traveling for vacations, to work and study in different countries, for business trips. More, and more often, even in Poland, passengers prefer to flight from one city to another instead to take a train. There is nothing surprised in it, especially when we compare the prices. Another nice thing about airplanes is, that you are able to make shopping, in very reasonable prizes, not only on duty free zone, but also on board.

Obviously, all of these differences are reflected in the price of tickets in particular class.
Economic class is the cheapest one. However, low price has its consequences. Possibility of changes flights details is very limited, usually is available only for additional fee. Space between sits is smaller than in other classes thus passengers have less space for themselves. Number and type of meals in economic class depend on the length and time of the flight. Depending on whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, passengers will be usually served omelet or scrambled eggs, sandwiches and so on. Passengers are often offered free drinks too. Some aircrafts offer passengers individual screen to enjoy audio-visual programs. However, it is not standard in business class and depends widely on airline, aircrafts as well as flight length.
Premium class is a class between economy and business ones. Passengers might enjoy more specious seats and additional facilities, as for example, bigger variety of available meals, wider choice of drinks, larger selection of audio-visual materials that could be watched in individual screen, electrical outlet next to the seat and so on. Additional options and bonuses in premium class widely depend on particular airlines (check more – http://www.lot.com/us/en/). Some of them offer additional baggage allowances as well as priority in boarding.
Business class is associated with comfort and luxury. At the airport, passengers can use VIP loungers, equipped with computers, showers and other useful features. On board, passengers are welcomed with glass of champagne. Choice of meals and drinks is much wider than in any other class. Distance between rows and seats are bigger thus passengers have more personal space and can travel in more comfortable conditions.
Nowadays, disability does not exclude flying. Passengers with disability are provided with a range of assistance while travelling by plain. However, to make sure that the trip will run smoothly both at the airport as well as on board, you need to know your rights and take some concrete steps.

All those regulations concern flights inside European Union. You are able to take a special formula for your infant child with you, with no limits, but is has to be double-checked before the flight.
If you are travelling outside the UE, you need to check out regulations about food transferring in each country you will be staying, even joust on the airport. Cause different countries have different rules, and is has nothing to do with each airline companies policy. For example, you are not able to have any fresh food in your bag while entering United States or Australia area, even in your checked baggage. Also, when you are planning to come back from your holidays, you cannot have any dairy, meat or other products of animal origin in any kind of baggage. European Union food policy is very restrictive.

At European Union area you are allowed to take formula for your child with no limits, but it has to be checked first.
