Boeing delivering first 787 to LOT Polish Airlines

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- LOT Polish Airlines plans to fly its first Boeing Co. 787 early next year on routes between Poland and New York, Chicago and Toronto.

Poland's LOT was Europe's first airline to purchase the new plane with an order for eight.

Boeing delivers the first LOT plane with Wednesday's ribbon-cutting ceremony at Paine Field in Everett.

Boeing says the 787 is the first mid-size plane capable of flying long-range routes, allowing airlines to open new, non-stop flights.
