An Air Canada Airbus A330-300, registration C-GHKR performing flight AC-83 from Tel Aviv (Israel) to Montreal,QC (Canada) with 232 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Tel Aviv's runway 26 when the crew received a F/CTL PITCH TRIM / MCDU / CG DISAGREE message and rejected takeoff at low speed (about 50-60 knots). The aircraft vacated the runway, stopped on a taxiway for preparation of another takeoff attempt and departed about 30 minutes after the rejected takeoff. The aircraft landed safely in Montreal about 30 minutes past schedule.

The Canadian TSB reported that prior to departure the fuel provider notified the crew that due to the outside air temperature of 34 degrees C the planned fuel configuration for the main tank could not be met. The fuel configuration was recalculated and the exceedance was loaded into the trim tank. The takeoff configuration check was successful, however, the increased fuel burn following the application of takeoff thrust moved the Center of Gravity slightly out of limit.
