LOT’s Dreamliners likely to resume flights in summer
March 18, 2013
Poland's national airline LOT CEO Sebastian Mikosz said on Friday that LOT’s two grounded Boeing 787 Dreamliners may be able to resume flights already this summer following removal of the technical blips and a series of tests.
Mikosz had earlier held talks with Boeing Co. representatives over the compensation after most of the maker’s flagship 787 Dreamliner passenger jets were grounded due to battery-related problems.
LOT has two Dreamliners in its fleet – one remains in Chicago, the other one is in Warsaw. Boeing has agreed to send engineers to Poland to help service the aircraft.
Boeing suspended delivery of three more planned for LOT this March. LOT said it managed to secure a delay in its payment schedule for the other 787s that are to join its fleet in 2014.
