C-FIVK has been involved in some incidents over the past few years. On September 6, 2014, the plane was enroute from Toronto to Shanghai, China. Over Russia, the first officer became ill and was unable to perform his duties. The first officer was replaced by a member of the flight crew and the plane landed at its destination without further incident.
On February 5, 2015, the plane was traveling from Bridgetown, Barbados to Toronto, Ontario. A cargo smoke indication was reported just after takeoff. The Boeing 777-200LR returned to Bridgetown safely and no trace of fire, smoke or heat was found.
