So I was at YYC tonight and saw the AC 333 that was headed out to LHR as AC 850. It taxied out and lined up on the runway as normal. Than it started to power up but for some reason remained only at taxi speed than stop and turned off the runway and returned to the terminal. Now AC's website is saying the flight isn't going until very early tomorrow morning and is now being operated by a 763. So I assume there was some troubles with the 333 and was wondering if anyone has details about what happened?

The original A330 returned to the gate with an engine problem. Aircraft went AOG and required a swap to the FIRAV aircraft. A 763 was ferried in from YVR to rescue 850. AC850 departed almost 7hrs late to LHR.
