A LOT Polish Airlines spokesman told ATW that the carrier expects its first Boeing 787 delivery to be in 2012, not 2013, as reported by Polish Press Agency PAP earlier this week (ATW Daily News, Oct. 19).
“According to official information which LOT Polish Airlines [has] at this moment, we expect first delivery of Boeing 787 next year,” the spokesman said in a statement.
LOT placed its first order for seven 787s in 2005, and increased the order to eight in 2007. Deliveries were originally slated to begin in 2008 (ATW Daily News, Sept. 8, 2005).
