WARSAW, Poland — Polish airline LOT has cancelled one trans-Atlantic flight and postponed another after technical problems on two of its Boeing 787 planes.

LOT spokeswoman Barbara Pijanowska-Kuras confirmed Thursday that a flight to Chicago was cancelled on Wednesday because of problems with the power system, while another to Toronto was postponed due to issues associated with tracking the plane.

She said Thursday that the problems were minor and not linked to the battery problems behind the global grounding of the 787 fleet earlier this year.

LOT has four 787s and was the first European airline to buy the plane.

However, the plane has proved something of a headache for the company. LOT is in talks with Boeing over how much it should be compensated for the grounding of the world's fleet.
