On 20 December, a maintenance crew working for Air Canada was taxiing in a company Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (registered C-FVLU) at Vancouver Airport, Canada. During the taxi from hanger to terminal, however, the aircraft ended up in soft ground next to the taxiway. 

According to information on flightradar24, the airline was forced to cancel domestic flight AC304 between Vancouver and Montreal. Ground crews pulled out the aircraft using a sling device and a tug.

I heard there may have been a defect in the steering control... that's just a rumour.

Air Canada Hopes For Connecting Traffic As It Anticipates Government Aid

Strict government travel restrictions have been a huge burden and revenue-killer for Canadian airlines, including Air Canada. The carrier has done several things to position itself for success in 2021, including the full and permanent conversion of some of its retired 767s into freighters. On the passenger operations side, however, the airline needs to rely more on connecting traffic as Canadians are forced to stay at home, and outside traffic is all but barred. Here’s what the airline had to say about the importance of these connecting flights on its road to recovery.

Great look. When do the winglets get installed ??  Is that always done after paint ??

This was posted when a Delta A220 was seen with no winglets,

As we at The Points Guy were admiring the fresh coat, Managing Editor Alberto Riva noticed something… odd. Something about the wings. Something about the overall physique. If you look carefully, you’ll notice that the A220-100 shown is missing its winglets — a small, but vital, part of the aircraft. Winglets exist to reduce turbulence and drag and were clearly there during earlier non-branded demonstrations of the A220.

 

There’s good news, though: The winglets on the A220 haven’t been forgotten. With final assembly to come after its time in the paint shop, Delta confirmed to TPG that the aircraft’s winglets are being painted separately. This doesn’t always happen — some birds are painted with winglets already installed. For the A220 in this particular paint shop, however, the fit was on the snug side. Because of that, precautions were taken to prevent any accidental dings, and the winglets will be painted and installed during the final assembly process. Oh, and if you’re curious, we also learned that the winglets are the only major A220 component painted separately.

Airbus to cut A220 production in Mirabel plant?

Airbus to cut A220 production in Mirabel plant? Antonio Da Costa, the Vice President of Single-Aisle Marketing of Airbus, reportedly announced that despite initial plans to increase Airbus A220 production in both facilities in Mirabel, Quebec, and Mobile, Alabama, the European plane manufacturer would restrict the A220 production rates in its main Mirabel plant.

Jerry Dias says AC and the feds are extremely close to a deal, AC has agreed to refund all vouchers, deal could be announced any time now, so presumably we'll also find what's in store for other carriers.
