WARSAW, Poland -- Poland's government says that LOT Polish Airlines is losing $50,000 a day due to the grounding of its two Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes.

LOT, a deeply indebted state-run airline, was the first European airline to get the Dreamliners. Deputy Treasury Minister Rafal Baniak put total losses due to the grounded planes Wednesday at 8 million zlotys ($2.5 million).

The global grounding of Dreamliners due to problems with its lithium batters has been a big blow to the airline. It is still waiting six more 787s to be delivered, several early this year.

Treasury Ministry information given Wednesday to a parliamentary committee said the grounding is causing LOT to lose $50,000 a day, without taking into account the cost of passenger complaints and some other costs, the news agency PAP reported.
