sorry if this is covered in another thread, I looked but didn't see one.

Which three cities will Air Canada be rolling out their new colors next week? Is it Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa? Nothing on the West Coast?

It's expected that Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver will be the cities to see the new scheme first. Oct 20th 10-11am is the expected unveiling in Vancouver.

Speculation is that the 767-300 (fin639) which is now in AMA will arrive at 10:00 on Oct19th in YYZ for the initial unveiling, then fly to YUL for a 14:30 unveiling there, and on Oct 20th it will fly to YVR for a 10:00 show for the YVR employee's. There are apparantly other announcements to be made as well on these dates(new uniforms,routes etc). More info about the 2 day roadshow is expected later today.

Almost anything should be better than their current one. Hopefully it isn't another lack-of-personality eurowhite scheme.

Just off the top of my head I think the current scheme must be around 10yrs old or pretty close to that. I'm certain that someone more knowlegable than me will gladly shoot me down for even daring to guess though. I've never been a huge fan of the current scheme, but hopefully they use the "Tango tail" as part of the new scheme.

As mentioned in many other threads on UA's new livery, it shouldn't cost any more to paint the aircraft with a new color scheme than it does now. All aircraft are repainted during their heavy maintenance checks ("D" check), as they must be stripped of their paint to check for cracks and fractures. As long as AC doesn't use a super complicated livery with lots of colors, the cost difference won't be significant. Though I doubt it will be any cheaper, look at what they have now.

Hi all,

Hopefully, they think of CP-Air as on of the main ancestors of what is now Air Canada. A reminiscene to CP-Air`s top paint-sheme (the orange one) would be great!
Just a hope,

I hate the all-white look. It's dull and boring. And the red maple leaf on black for the tail is downright horrible. The maple leaf looks wilted to me. I actually liked the previous scheme.

I think I remember that AC's current colour scheme came out in 1994, so it's about 10-11 years old now.

I also think AC's going to want to go for something other than a totally "Eurowhite" colour scheme, as I have a feeling it appears to be heading for a radical image makeover in not only the colour scheme, but also service and other things. And this is regardless of whether or not it just got out of CCAA status - sometimes one has to spend money to make money. Many corporations, including airlines, are very well aware of this.

I was able to dig up a copy of Horizons (AC's internal Newsletter) dated December 1, 1993, the day on which Air Canada launched its current corporate identity. The initital strategy was to sever the ties in which consumers identified AC as a crown corporation. The then new identity was to strongly link Air Canada to Canada, the country, and reflect the most positive imageds of Canada itself (hospitable, spacious, state-of-the-art, peaceful and diverse).

Was unable to find it through search, but a recent posting illustrated an artists rendering of an aircraft with shades of emerald green, reds, oranges, which has been rumored to be the choice or close to it. Anybody have that link??

Should be interesting.....

I think the first appearance of the current c/s was around December 1993. I have photos dated April 1994 of an A320, a B762 and a DC-9 in the new c/s. I believe it was 1998 when the repainting was complete.

If any of the British/European readers have got the latest Airliner World (November) they have a pic in there (page 16). They state its one of many ideas released internally by the company.

Its very Eurowhite (not that theres anything wrong with that!). It has a green tail, with green lettering in a pretty rubbish font.... the maple leaf is diagonal on the tail and extends to the fuselage in a range of green/white/red/orange/yellow stripes. The maple leaf is also on the fuselage behind the lettering. Its not a very nice scheme really, prefer the current one.

Also, like it said, its one of a number of schemes released internally, and the fact that a magazine has got hold of it suggests it won't be the final one as I guess thats being stictly embargoed until its launch....

The pic of the 747 is not the new colour scheme, it was a creation of some amateur on another website, and last I heard he wishes he'd copyrighted the thing. It's been floating around the net for a month now. This info has already been posted here in another thread.

I kinda like that illustration of a "possible" livery. Although I am someone who does like change. However, I am hoping for a scheme that will be created by the same people who created Aeroflot's current scheme.

Where is the a.net thread that has already posted regarding the same topic as this thread? I would like to read what people wrote there.
