A LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 787-9, registration SP-LSC performing flight LO-8579 from Warsaw (Poland) to Heraklion (Greece), was accelerating for takeoff from Warsaw's runway 33 when the crew rejected takeoff at low speed (about 50 knots over ground) due to a problem with the right hand engine (Trent 1000). The aircraft slowed safely and returned to the apron.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 3 hours while maintenance resolved the problem, then departed and reached Heraklion with a delay of about 2.5 hours.
