Is the plane a write-off or they can fix the belly and let it fly again?

LOT Polish Airlines back to full long-haul capacity

LOT Polish Airlines are now back to full long-haul capacity nearly two weeks after one of its Boeings 767 crash-landed with gear up in Warsaw. The airline has leased a similar aircraft from Ukrainian Aerosvit. Warsaw, Poland. 8th November 2011

Nearly two weeks after Boeing 767-300ER of LOT Polish Airlines has crash-landed in Warsaw with gear up, the airline has returned to full capacity of five wide-body aircrafts. New addition to the fleet is a Boeing 767-300ER from Ukrainian Aerosvit airlines. It has been leased until mid-January, when the original aircraft is expected to be back in service again.

On November 1st LOT's Boeing 767 registered SP-LPC, enroute from Newark as LO 16 flight, suffered a failure of central hydraulics system. In effect the gear could not be lowered on landing and the aircraft with 220 passengers and 11 crew on board belly landed in Warsaw. No one was injured, but the damaged aircraft blocked both runways and the main airport in Poland remained closed for about 30 hours. Approximately 20 thousand passengers were affected by delays, cancellations and divertions.

After the aircraft has been finally towed to the maintenance base, both Boeing and LOT technicians determined the damages to be smaller than expected. "Repairs will likely take about one month", says Tomasz Balcerzak, COO of LOT Polish Airlines. The aircraft is now unavailable for the airline or the manufacturer, as the National Commission of Air Crashes Examination (PKBWL) is investigating the case. Date of return into service depends mostly on how long will the PKBWL take, but also on the availability of spare parts.

LOT Polish Airlines operates on five long-haul destinations: Newark, New York-JFK and Chicago O'Hare in the US, Toronto and Hanoi in Vietnam. The leased aircraft, which is staffed by Ukrainian crews, will only be flying to Canada and Vietnam. "No flights were cancelled due to shortage of planes", explains Leszek Chorzewski, Press Officer of LOT, "but it was not possible to operate with only four Boeings 767 for any longer".

LOT is the launch customer of Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in Europe. First planes were originally scheduled for delivery in 2008, but are now expected not earlier than fourth quarter of 2012. This delay forced the airline to extend service of five Boeings 767. The average age of long-haul fleet of the Warsaw-based carrier is nearly 18 years.

Would be nice to see some of Eurolot Q400 pics posted As well, it is worth mentioning that a new Polish carrier OLT Express has launched service this year in Poland.

The carrier will have a fleet of over 20 aircraft by the end of 2012:

7x A320
6x A319
7x ATR 72
2x ATR 42

And I wouldn't be surprised if they will also announce European routes from Poznan and Szczecin in the next few days.

That's a very ambitious start-up of international operations, maybe a bit too ambitious for a new airline.

I agree.... MA is gone, JP? The bankers are looking to get cash back asap. I would not even book with them.. OU will feel the heat as soon as GULF carriers push LH. RO is a bigger airline so I can't predict.

OU doesn't need Gulf carriers to feel the heat, they're a badly run airline with no common sense, nor credible vision, or feasable business plan just like all the other airlines in the region.

They'll really feel the heat next year once Croatia enters the EU, and subsidies are a thing of the past.

I'm surprised Adria is still around, they're numbers are doing a belly flop.

IMHO they are out of luck. Even smaller airports are overtaking Ljubljana, so I can't see who is going to transit via LJU. The rest that are stuck with Star monopoly, they will flock to places like BEG and pocket the savings. These days everyone is looking each penny.(Even in the western World). I am 100% sure many Slovenians use Vienna/Venice. That's why Ljubljana is reporting 18% slump on pax numbers. Now LH/Star can just flood the market with their regional jets, but what about the workers who will get laid off due to negative trend at Ljubljana airport.....

I think Lufthansa is starting to fly out of DBV during the winter. So they are starting to push OU out of their way. That's what they did to JAT at BEG. They want to serve BEG four times a day from FRA/MUC, as result, LH axed codeshare and mile reward miles program. If it was not for SkyTeam, Jat would be out of luck. I can just imagine what's going on in Budapest...

Are there still talks about the forming of one big former Yugoslavian airline? That was always seen as one of the options to safe the individual airlines. But since it will be politically loaded it won't be an easy solution.

I don't see this happening anytime soon. They all have very difefrent fleet, markets and traffic. On top of all that, I simply don't see any benefits. Jat would want to focus on BEG, and that's what they should do. The coastal airports in Croatia are overflooded with lowcost carriers. So Jat has a old and sort of new strategy which is to link them with BEG and take it from there. Jat airways already have strong presence in Macedonia and Montenegro. I just think it's too early for us in Serbia to merge with the rest of airlines from the old country. Since visas were removed in 2009, Belgrade airport has been booming and developing very nicely. Jat is not in goodshape, but that's due to 20 year old isolation and embargo. They are just starting to make use of their B733. During the embargo, these airplanes were simply too big to operate, and there is ten of them.

Not that I want to take away anything from Slovenia and Croatia, but I think their airports have reached their potential. On top of that, Slovenians use Vienna/Venice and that's about it. I don't see how we can merge as one airline. The reality is that Star alliance has fragmented this market with their monopoly, and the damage is done. Lufthansa is dominating this region by scooping up the transit passengers, and that's about it.

While we're on the subject of Belgrade airport it has come to my attention that a relative of mine has booked a ticket with FlyDubai in Zagreb.

The company has organized van/mini bus pick up in Zagreb for all they're customers, and they drive them to Belgrade for the FlyDubai flight. From what I hear they have a very good pax count.

My relative basically says it's the same time frame as driving to Vienna Airport from Zagreb with out the hastle. That's if your flying Emirates with out the connection from ZAG.
