LOT Polish Airlines, which is still under the microscope of the European Commission after the $127m government loan last December, looks to be pulling back from the brink with a projected operating loss of $6.6 million for this fiscal year from a projected $47 million loss earlier.

The airline states that the 787 is starting to show its true worth and it is the “787 factor” that has allowed LOT to pull-back from the brink in the short term.
