WARSAW May 6 Rolls Royce will
replace one of the engines of a Boeing Dreamliner owned
by Polish carrier LOT and grounded in Chicago, LOT's
spokesman said on Monday, citing a technical issue.
Marek Klucinski confirmed the report by Polish TVN24 news
"One of the engines will be replaced by Rolls Royce. We are
running checks on all four engines in our (two) Dreamliners,"
the spokesman said.
The other Dreamliner is grounded in Warsaw.
"The engine will be replaced by Wednesday. We expect both
our Dreamliners to be operational by the end of May and confirm
that they will be reinstated in the fleet on June 5," the
LOT was the first European airline to take delivery of
Boeing's trouble-plagued Dreamliner jets last year before they
were grounded due to battery issues.
LOT said it expected to resume Dreamliner flights to Chicago
and Toronto on June 5.
