Air China flight status shows cancelled which is incorrect?


I spoke to both Orbitz and Air China about the flight Air China 986 departing San Francisco on Nov 3rd to Beijing. Both confirmed that the flight will be departing on time.

Why does FlightAware shows that as cancelled. Any idea? Please help.


Considering today is only November 2, why don’t you wait until the 3rd to check the flight on FlightAware?


The airline sent us a message on 11/02 1140Z indicating the flight departing SFO on 11/03 2150Z and arriving PEK 11/04 0955Z is cancelled.
