LOT B788 near Toronto on Sep 28th 2013, technical problems
Last Update: October 1, 2013 / 15:36:30 GMT/Zulu time
The airline reported that the transponder of the aircraft malfunctioned prompting Norway to not permit overflight of the aircraft.
Radar data show the Mode-S transponder of the aircraft, including position reporting, worked without flaw throughout the flight.
A passenger said, the departure was delayed by one hour, then another hour and once again another hour due to mechanics working on the aircraft. The passenger was told before departure from Toronto that the flight was planned at FL270, unusually low, due to a transponder problem. During the flight the crew came on and announced that Norway had not permitted overflight due to the transponder problem.
NAV Canada did not report any inflight occurrence with the flight suggesting that the flight at FL270 was planned and not the result of an inflight encounter, at the same time suggesting there was no anomaly with the flight observed in Canadian Airspace.
Two replacement aircraft, a Boeing 737-400 registration SP-LLF as flight LO-9003 and an Embraer ERJ-190 registration SP-LND as flight LO-9001 have been dispatched from Warsaw to Keflavik to take the passengers of SP-LRA to Warsaw.
The aircraft actually experienced temporary loss of transponder signal and failure of the other transponder on approach to Toronto, see Incident: LOT B788 at Toronto on Sep 28th 2013, transponder problem.
