Anyone else hear rumors about direct flights Ottawa to Gatwick this summer on the Max?

If you heard that rumour, that's the most it's going to be; a rumour.

The MAX will not be back in service in Canada until July at the earliest, but I think that might be a little optimistic.

How could it be back in service before July? They haven't submitted their solution to the bit-flipping issue yet. When they do, they still have to conduct test flights, update/fix the current aircraft, conduct test flights on those, send them to the airlines (who have to do training and testing).

WJ has the slots from YOW-LGW. My guess is B787 service

It won't be 787.
787 will only do flying out of YVR, YYC, YYZ.
