Upgraded to Nordica Premium Economy

A new airline for me this evening, the Estonian airline Nordica, nowadays the national airline of Estonia after Estonian Air went bankrupt in 2015. Although Nordica started as a separate airline they are now closely connected to the Polish airline LOT. Their aircrafts, most of them CRJ-700 and CRJ-900, are painted with both the LOT and the Nordica logos and once onboard you could either get an Estonian crew or a Polish crew, or a mix, depending on the planned rotations that day. All Nordica flights are operated using LOT flight numbers and the LO prefix and they are regarded as a full member of Star Alliance.

And at the gate at Stockholm Arlanda airport just before boarding a small surprise was waiting, an upgrade to premium economy thanks to my Star Alliance gold card. Not that it made a huge difference on the 40 minutes hop from Stockholm to Tallinn where I got to enjoy a cup of coffee and a small snack, but still a very nice gesture, especially as it also came with an empty adjacent seat on the otherwise packed flight.
