C-GHLU took its first flight on April 25, 2001 and was delivered to Air Canada on June 20, 2001. On May 3, 2015, the Boeing 767-333ER was transferred to the Air Canada Rouge fleet. This is one of 24 B763 aircraft currently flying for Rouge. The airliner is configured for a maximum total of 258 passengers with 24 seats in ‘Premium Rouge’ and 258 more seats in economy class.
On December 21, 2010, C-GHLU was flying from Vancouver, British Columbia to Shanghai, China. At 30,000 feet, still over the province of British Columbia, the captain’s Air Data Computer failed. This resulted is a number of error messages and an overspeed warning. The ADC was restored but the aircraft was diverted back to Vancouver as a precaution. The result was the replacement of the left side ADC along with the related circuit breaker and transformer.
The first Boeing 767-300ER entered service with American Airlines in 1988, seven years after the initial variant was introduced with United Airlines in 1981. A total of 583 have been delivered.
