      Polish airline denies it has got Boeing 787 compensation

      WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Poland's LOT airline says it is still waiting for money from Boeing for the grounding of its two 787 planes.

      In a statement Friday, LOT said its demands "have not been compensated in any form" by Boeing. LOT's aircraft were grounded earlier this year - along with the world's entire 787 fleet - after some of the planes developed battery problems.

      LOT's statement contrasts with a recent comment from Boeing Chairman and CEO Jim McNerney that the aircraft manufacturer has finished paying those whose 787 were grounded.

      The grounding and loss of revenue from passengers was a blow to LOT, which is undergoing a restructuring. The Polish government has said more than $30 million was last from cancelled flights alone.
