2005-12-30: UPDATE TSB A05A0160: Alitalia Boeing 767, operating as AZA627, was en route from Chicago to Milan at 33,000 ft.

Just prior to entering the Gander FIR, the crew contacted Gander ACC and requested 34,000ft. Gander ACC contacted Montreal ACC to ask why the aircraft had not been cleared to the higher level. They were informed that Montreal ACC had neglected to do so and asked Gander ACC to issue the clearance for them. There was no loss of separation. NAV CANADA is convening an OSI into the incident.
