Boy it seems that the 345s have had their share of mechanical problems for AC--seeing as they are brand new unused aircraft--what's the deal with all these maintenance problems?

I know that they have been having some trouble with the gear of the A345 and I think that open house day they had at YYZ not to long ago the aircraft was supposed to go to LHR that night but didn't.... I will call my buddy for the details tomorrow...
