Poland agrees compensation with Boeing over Dreamliners: minister

Polish flagship carrier LOT (LOT.UL) has agreed with U.S. plane maker Boeing (BA) on compensation for the faults that grounded its 787 Dreamliner jets, Treasury Minister Wlodzimierz Karpinski was quoted as saying by local media on Tuesday. Karpinski did not say whether Boeing agreed to pay the compensation in cash or lower lease rates for the Dreamliners, but said the deal was “satisfactory” for LOT. The Polish flag airline, which has struggled for years with huge operating losses, has estimated the cost of Dreamliner problems at 100 million zlotys ($32.1 million). “We signed an agreement that regulates issues related to our usage of the Dreamliners,” Karpinski told daily Rzeczpospolita.
