The Canadian TSB reported the aircraft experienced a loss of power on the right hand engine. The crew dumped fuel and returned to Toronto. The TSB is currently assessing the occurrence to decide whether to open an investigation.
The NTSB reported that there was a loss of power on the right hand engine associated with vibrations and a yaw moment. Passengers reported fire from the engine.

ATC advised that if they wanted emergency services on stand by, they would need to enter a hold due to the ongoing emergency with El Al, which tied up all emergency services. The Air Canada crew decided to proceed without emergency services, advised they were not sure whether they would leave any debris on the runway, airport operations just dispatched a vehicle to conduct a runway inspection after landing. AC-877 landed safely on runway 24R about 5 minutes prior to landing of LY-30.
