Polish flag carrier LOT has put on hold taking delivery of the three Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets it is scheduled to receive, Polish Treasury Minister Mikolaj Budzanowski said.

State-controlled LOT has taken delivery of two 787s and was to receive three others by the end of next month. But last month all 50 Boeing 787s in commercial service after a series of battery-related incidents.

The Polish airline has so far lost 7.7 million zlotys (USD$2.5 million) in relation to the 787 problems, Budzanowski said in a statement to parliament.
