B787 For LOT - Any Updates?

Fri Mar 16, 2012 5:47 pm

Hi there,

Have just realized that planned delivery of the first 787 for LOT should be just around the corner and I was wondering if there are any updates or details on how she is doing.

Is she painted yet? Any photos? When is the handing-over planned for?

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

It's definitely not around the corner. It used to be though. For reasons well known on these pages, the delivery slipped to the fourth quarter of 2012.

First frame is due to be delivered in November. The first elements have started arriving at various plants in late February. Apparently, LO will have first five frames in the first quarter of 2013.

If you go on the tour of the Everett Boeing Plant, you can clearly see that the final assembly of the first LOT 787 started this week. There is a sign on the airplane saying "Proudly building the first Boeing 787 Dreamliner for LOT Polish Airlines". She's in the last position of the production line undergoing major section join from the looks of it.

She is not painted yet.

Looks like a November delivery for the first LOT Polish Airlines 787-8

Thanks guys for the updates. OK, I admit I was not up to date, perhaps still dreaming...  

I have believed I did some search in the forum, but I could have used wrong keywords.

Well, gotta wait a bit longer then. Good that at least she is slowly taking shape.

Thanks again!

I'll be sure to fly LO to BUD from YYZ if they send the 787 here...

How is LO managing their long-haul fleet with one 763 out of service? Are they wet-leasing any aircraft?
