I had no idea guys. I thought Jazz was just a low cost intra-Canada deal. I also thought they only used 737 and A320 type planes in a low cost format.
This AC rebranding is very confusing. Seems to me they are diluting the core product. As a New Yorker, I recognize AC- but Jazz sounds kind of cheap and has ZERO brand recognition in the US. If I wasn't such a plane buff, I would never have even known to ask the question.

It must have been a nice surprise to see the Jazz 146, when you didn't even know about them! The 146 is my favourite "Air Canada" type, and I'd like to see more of them. I'll have to get to YUL one day soon and catch one of the LGA departures/arrivals. I freaked out last year when AC said they were going to park the 146's; I'm glad they somehow changed their mind. They're the closest thing to 'variety' we have up here.
I believe AC has 8 146's in total, 6 from Air Nova, and 2 from Air BC(I'm sure someone will correct me!), both of which are now part of 'Jazz', which is AC's new name for their regional branch, as mentioned above.

It should also be mentioned that Tango now operates to the US, LAS and FLL. Jazz has always operated into the States and will be increasing it presence in the near future. It is true that our CRJs were aquired from Midway and we are looking for more 200s. The mainline AC CRJs are amoungst the first produced and we don't want them.
