WARSAW--A Boeing Co. (BA) 787 Dreamliner jet operated by LOT Polish Airlines on route from Toronto to Warsaw landed in Iceland Sunday after Norway refused entry into its airspace due to a malfunctioning of the onboard identification system, a LOT spokeswoman said.
LOT earlier this month detected missing fuel filters in two of its 787 jets, which prompted flight cancellations and delays. The airline said it would claim the costs from Boeing together with at least $30 million of costs it had incurred due to the global grounding of all 787 jets earlier this year.
Earlier this week, one of Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA's (NAS.OS) 787 jets was grounded in Bangkok due to technical problems, adding to a range of recent mishaps with the planes. Norwegian said the situation is unacceptable, while Boeing said it is "working...to ensure we have the right support in place to help each airline through the entry-into-service process."
LOT, which has five 787s and expects to eventually operate eight, plans to repair its jet in Iceland, the spokeswoman said. The state-owned Polish airline sent two other planes to pick up passengers.
