The 777-300ER Coming To Mexico?

I was told yesterday that the Boeing 777-300ER was coming to GDL but it never arrived. Then today I saw at Flytecomm tracker system that the 773 is scheduled again to GDL, currently it's flying over Oregon. (Flight: BOE521)

Does anybody know if it's really coming to GDL or is just a false alarm?

Thanks,

BTW, If you see the route at Flytecomm tracking system, over Oregon it deviates to the right and then it goes back to the left. Is this part of a test?

I don't know why, but I suppose they're going to test how the aircraft behaves at high altitude airports with high temps (5000ft, 30°C at 2pm)

Tomorrow I will ask for more info to a friend that works in GDL Tower.

Here are the photos I took today:
