I can't recall seeing anything indicating that AC has any firm commitments for more 77Ws and 77Ls than the total of 18 already ordered. I think 15 of the 18 have been delivered. 16 were ordered from Boeing and two are leased from ILFC.

Quoting TKfan (Reply 6): dont know if still available but on 1stOct it was, and as I said before dont know it they belong really to Air Canada
They are still there, but Air Canada last month noted that they were anxious to get their two remaining 777s from Boeing so I can't see them wanting to suddenly wet-lease two birds to another operator.
Is it possible Airfax just collates reports and doesn't actually serve as a broker? So perhaps these planes are indeed sale-leaseback transactions as Viscount24 referenced and because the transaction hasn't been finalized yet, Airfax just collated a report saying two birds were on the market even though they will not be leaving AC's fleet.
Seems you are both correct. As Viscount24 said it might be a sale-leasback transaction, didnt thought of it, just saw two available B777.
Wishful thinking. In Turkey there are rumours going around Turkish Airlines might switch to an Boeing Long Haul Fleet, so I am looking around where they can obtain some in-shape B777s...
