Narrative:
Air Canada Rouge flight AC1713, a Boeing 767-300ER, suffered a ground contact incident when parking at spot 181 (Terminal 1) after landing at Toronto-Pearson International Airport, Canada.
The left hand winglet cut into the right hand wing tip of a LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner (SP-LRC), that was positioned at parking spot 180 (Terminal 1). This aircraft was preparing for departure back to Warsaw, Poland as flight LO46.


The Teamsters Union suggested in a Facebook page that the incident happened as LO46 was being pushed back by 'an untrained manager'.
An official for Swissport, that was handling LO46, stated by quoting TSB that the incident occurred as the Boeing 767 was being parked. He further stated that LO46 was parked correctly at the gate and that the airplane was being loaded at the time.
This was confirmed by a passenger who tweeted that the boarding process was ongoing as the incident occurred.
