The issue needs resolution but first we need to know if the filters were originally installed in the RR Trent 1000
engines and then removed (and not replaced) by BA mechanics or they were missing when received from Rolls Royce. Then BA can take the appropriate action to fix the issue. If RR shipped the engines withut the filters, they own a large piece of the liability.
All LOT planes are fitted with RR Trent 1000 engines,
But the point is valid unless the filters were removed by boeing and then not replaced as claimed by another poster. We will have to wait and see what the investigation reveals.
If report is accurate, Boeing has to take some swift action to eliminate these kind of problems.
-LOT Polish Airlines SA was forced to ground its Boeing Co.787 Dreamliners again when it discovered that low-pressure fuel filters were missing in engines of two planes.
The troubled flag-carrier blamed Boeing for the fault in a statement Wednesday. It said filters were missing in both engines of one aircraft and in one engine of another. It didn't say when the glitch was detected.
LOT halted flights of its five 787s and replaced them temporarily with 777s and 767s leased from EuroAtlantic. All the Dreamliners are now back in service

The Senate this week warned lawmakers and their staff not to sign up for Obamacare’s health exchanges, saying that the administration hasn’t yet finalized the rules for how to keep paying for their premiums.
“Members and staff are advised that they should delay enrolling in health insurance plans until we are able to offer further guidance as to how they should enroll in these insurance plans for 2014,” the Senate disbursing office said in an email to staffers Monday. “Premature enrollment could adversely impact eligibility for the employer premium contribution.”
Boeing is being awarded a $225M modification to a previously awarded fixed-price-incentive-firm contract for the procurement of six operational flight trainers, six weapons tactics trainers, two part task trainers, one training systems support center, three 10-seat electronic classrooms, and one 20-seat electronic classroom in support of the U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon low rate initial Production IV and full rate Production I aircraft. Work is expected to be completed in March 2018.
Last I saw they are going to use them as target drones. But the technology can be used for other purposes once they have more data. Once the airframes are strenghtened, they will be able to turn on a dime since there is no pilot to black out.
It can also capture photos of the caribou and polar bear that thrive in that area. The caribou love to stay near the warm pipelne in the winter. A ggod use of great technology in many ways. Just have to keep the Eco nuts from trying to shoot the drones down.
Often it is impossible to post a story if it is in the news items under Boeing headlines in Yahoo Finance.
If you move a few sentences around whill keeping the inegrity of the article,and use a headline slightly different than the headline in Yahoo, the software does not recognize it and will allow you to post it.
