An Air Canada Boeing 787-900, registration C-FGEO performing flight AC-548 from Vancouver,BC (Canada) to Newark,NJ (USA) with 292 passengers and 10 crew, had been dispatched with the left thrust reverser inoperative under minimum equipment list requirements. The aircraft departed and performed an uneventful flight until touch down in Newark. Following touchdown on Newark's runway 22L the crew selected the right hand reverser, the right reverser however failed to deploy. The aircraft slowed safely nonetheless and taxied to the apron.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance found the right reverser isolation control valve deactivated. The valve was re-activated and an engine run performed without any further anomaly.
