Poland's Dreamliners in trouble again
September 26, 2013
Two of five Boeing 787 Dreamliners owned by Poland's flagship carrier LOT had to be grounded as checkups showed they were missing low-pressure fuel filters, the airline said Wednesday.
That is not anything major, it's a tiny glitch and the planes were at no time in danger," Barbara Pijanowska LOT spokesperson said.
She also said that LOT would add the cost of temporary replacement plane rentals to its list of compensation claims from Boeing.
The Polish airline’s planes were grounded earlier this year due a battery malfunction on 787s that affected many carriers.
The Polish government estimated that the grounding cost LOT some PLN 100 million and it is currently trying to get reimbursement from Boeing.
