An Air Canada Boeing 787-9, registration C-FRTG performing flight AC-37 from Vancouver,BC (Canada) to Melbourne,VI (Australia) with 212 passengers and 14 crew, was accelerating for takeoff from Vancouver's runway 26L when at about 80 KIAS the crew heard a loud bang from the right hand engine (GEnx) and the aircraft yawed to the right. The crew rejected takeoff and stopped on the runway. Emergency services were requested to check the engine, the aircraft subsequently taxied to the apron on own power.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance determined the engine had suffered a compressor stall due to a migrating piston ring seal. The engine was replaced.
