An Air Canada Boeing 767-300, registration C-GLCA performing flight AC-859 from London Heathrow,EN (UK) to Toronto,ON (Canada), was accelerating for takeoff from Heathrow's runway 27R when the crew observed the throttles staggered and pushed the left hand thrust lever forward in order to achieve the desired thrust setting. After becoming airborne and climbing out the stagger continued and the left hand engine (CF6) did not achieve full climb thrust. The crew stopped the climb at FL120, declared PAN and returned to London for a safe landing on runway 27L about 40 minutes after departure.

On Dec 7th 2015 the Canadian TSB reported that the left hand engine's fuel pump and hydro-mechanical unit were replaced.
