It was quite an event with Céline Dion in the new uniform, and with new seat and external colours. We were also shown the new ad campaign.

Here is a link to some of my pictures taken this morning:

...and take the time to see some of my other pics will ya!? LOL!


We'll have to wait a sunny day before we can truly see the very shiny paint job. Otherwise it looked kinda "Crestlike" in the drab skies...

Whoa, there, don't get too imaginative there, AC - we don't want the creative juices to run dry too quickly.

(Is this a new concept from the legendary design house, Bland, Dull & White Inc.?)

As far as I can see, all they changed was the tail design. I suppose it is ok, but couldn't they have put more imagination into this new scheme?

Kaitak...I love your reply, you must have sent it in while I was typing mine. I was expecting something really new and different, but is seems all we got was "warmed over" Air Canada. They could have just left it the way it was for all the difference this design makes!

Not much change, but a beautiful new c/s nonetheless. I espicially like the gradient on the tail.

From the photos it appears to me the basic paint is a greenish off-white like JALs new livery is kind of pinkish off-white. Or does the green tint come from the bad light?
But if its just white, I give it a big BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Even less colour than the colourless old one that would be. My god, what a disappointment. I was expecting "Phoenix from the Ashes." This is a bunch of funeral flowers.

The new design is, in a word, bland.

The upside is that the new seats do look good.

It's a shame the industry trend seems to be one of conservative corporate identity design, resulting in look-alike exterior color schemes and variations on blue interiors and uniforms.

More esoterically, it probably does mirror the current state of the airline industry.

One question: What is AC's new service supposed to look like? Are they going to announce improvements to all service classes or are they going down the "wannabe LCC" route so prevelent in the industry today?

So much for the "big" surprise! Its hidious!! A new paint scheme for the tail and just a new coat of paint for the rest of the fuselage. Boring...so much for the "new" flair and marketing of Air Canada.

Hey Greg,

thanks for the link...been dying to see some real shots of this livery for days! I honestly think it looks OK! I wanted to see a more drastic change, but I think it somehow looks much more modern than the old one. At least it's much better than that horrid green/red/orange scheme they had drawn up a few weeks ago! Smile

It's hard to tell, is the fuselage tinted a pale blue/green color?


For all the change it made they really should have just left the old scheme!

No. Considering that the repainting aircraft is necessary during the D checks, doing away with the black tail is a good move.

Not only PTVs on the CRJs but it sounds more like AVOD throughout the entire fleet from the press release. I am a little sceptical on that though, wouldn't the weight and electrical demands be too much for say a CRJ-200?

The only thing holding the old livery together was the beautiful tail. Now that the tail is just blah, the rest of the plane becomes crap too. Your new scheme SUCKS AC!

I'll hold off judgement until I see the thing in decent light, but so far it seems very bland.
PTVs will be standard on all aircraft including the CRJs as mentioned above. Possibly in response to Westjet's Live TV?
Thankfully the hideous green uniforms will be replaced! Big grin

I have to agree with most of you so far, the new c/s is very boring and drab. My initial impression was its an all-white plane with a red maple leaf. It's like the schemes some airline put on their planes as an interim scheme until they're fully painted!

What a shame...was expecting something unique...or at least eye-catchy.

139 Vio : As I was driving back from my "Air Law" class at CFTC, I passed by the Air Canada hangar at YYC and guess what I saw??? the new 767. I didn't think it

142 WJA73G : THEY NEED TO MAKE THE WHOLE THING SLIGHTLY DARKER!! MORE CRISP!! WJA73G
143 Ua2162 : Like a lot of people here, I think the old c/s is better. Oh well, I guess crying about it isn't going to change anything.
144 BN747 : Me like alot! The green hue is freakin' AWESOME!!! Very 21st century! I wish the 744s could get the chance to wear it-- but as we know...it ain't happ
145 The777Man : Not much change, but this small change make it much less attractive; not enough color. The darkgreen tale livery is MUCH better. Too bad. I'm already
146 BO__einG : It came into Calgary a few hours ago from YUL. C-FXCA bringing in the likes of Milton and Celine Dion. Its blue was certainly hard to tell in the lack
147 Ba777-236 : Kudos to AC for wanting some change.... But I don't think the change was drastic enough! If Mr Milton and company want to portray Air Canada as a new

149 777ER : Even thou it is a small change it looks alot better then the the old one. The black background did not look right, but the light bluish looks better.
150 JGPH1A : Pathetic - shows absolutely no imagination whatsoever. The most boring new colour scheme since JAT introduced their "Twister" c/s last year. Euro-whit
151 Post contains images DIJKKIJK : Thanks for the A$$, Air Canada! The colour scheme makes the airplane look like an ambulance! Shiite!
152 Miamix707 : AC gets new "colours" that one needs to see in tropical sunshine (not like Canada has much of that) to appreciate... This is one of those that won't l
153 EurostarVA : To summarize it in 3 words: LOW COST APPROACH This is terrible and I hope we won't have to live with this boring, cold and uninspiring livery for yet
154 N766UA : I still don't see any green, blue, olive, macaroni and cheese, or purple mountain majesty colored hue. Do you have to be high to get this color scheme
155 Corpsnerd09 : You account has been suspended (Cessnapimp). Contact the billing department (Yikes!).
156 VivaGunners : not too bad, but they could have changed it a bit more.... however it looks good and that's the important thing for a plane. Long life AC! cheers
157 Duke : "Hi, notice anything different about me?" "Ummm...I give up. New glasses?" For a "new livery" that's PATHETIC! Come on, at least there was a clear gre

159 Erikwilliam : I guess the tail is ok, I mean, the maple leaf has more "life" than the other one in black and red. The fuselage, hummmm, did a kid paint it, doesn´t
160 Psa188 : Ugh. This is completely uninspiring and bland, not that the [newest] old scheme was much to write home about. Why did AC bother wasting the money on t
161 Ntspelich : ahhhh...Ntspelich, what do you see that is so "beautiful" about this new scheme? For all the change it made they really should have just left the old
162 Wolfy : I love it! Way to go AC! Any new destination?!
163 EuroLeb : WOW! A very nice, simple, elegant and classy livery that reflects the new AIR CANADA. I can't wait to see it on the new EM-190's and CRJ-700's, which
164 Asteriskceo : I don't like it. The previous one was the best.
165 Scf158 : what a pity! maybe if it had more of the blue on the rest of the body to compliment the tail. The tail looks amazing by itself, but the whole package
166 Post contains links and images NceBoy : That's a nice livery.... way much interesting than the previous one : The light blue/ice on the fuselage will look great at... 30000 feets. Too bad we

169 C172heavy : The new paint scheme seems to reflect our country's overall image...not too bad, but kinda bland and no real change. Maybe AC shoulda hired the Royal
170 Post contains images Bmacleod : I think it's a suitable design for the new AC. It's a shame we won't get to see it on a 744. Only 10 days left for AC service?
171 Canadi>nBoy : Two work colleagues and I were cordially invited to attend the YYZ "ceremony" yesterday (which was nice of AC) but I must say I concur with those who

173 Flyinround731 : The aircraft looked better on the cloudy day, it looked "bluer". I like the scheme though, it gets a good grade in my book, on the 763 at least. -Joe
174 Davidyyc : I agree with some-one about a thousand posts above this, that most of the public dont care, and are unlikely to notice the difference. Many dont have
175 HAVIK747 : Just what the world needs is another dull scheme ... AC should have left the old one ...
176 Cactus739 : I love that tail.... very vibrant. as for the rest...I can't decide if I like it or not. But the tail rocks.
177 Davidyyc : To add to my post above (no 174), none of the local papers had any pictures of this famous unveiling, I thought that strange. Even the Globe and Mail

179 Ktachiya : Oh boy~ There is one out at the hangar going through repaint (B767-300) and its green right now. Honestly, that green looks much better than that. I l

182 BigD : The new scheme would have much more "wow" appeal if the engines were painted the same red used on the tail....It really does look very similar to the
183 Sspontak : I agree with the red engine idea. I thought the same thing. The plane certainly is missing something and that is it. I hope AC reads this.
184 Alexinwa : BORING!!!! All are looking the same these days. New paint, same boring look.
185 Crj 900 : The CRJs will never wear this paint, they are going to Jazz and will be painted in the Jazz logo (includes the 705s)
186 MikeYEG : yeech.... It would be better (IMHO) if they would have continued the dot matrix-gradient thing in a diagonal pattern vertically down the back of the f

188 CYLW : If anyone in SYD cares. One of the newly painted 763s will be arriving in SYD as flight 033 this morning. Or is that tomorrow your time?? I think it's
189 ETStar : If the engine had its top half only painted in the same red as the maple leaf's, I'd go googoo gaga over it!
190 AAplatnumflier : Why didnt the A340's come out of France like this? Wouldnt it of been easier?
191 AirOrange : Lesson 1: how do I break down a great branding...ask AC. What a misser, uhhh mis-management! It has nothing to do with branding. The tailfin design is
192 CainanUK : A few random thoughts after watching the video.... I think the livery blows. Far too bland. They should have gone with something a bit more groundbrea

199 Ramprat : Looks like someone in upper management isnt happy with the new paint either. Apparently, when Milton went down to Texas to see the shiny new paint job
200 BigD : Ramprat, This is interesting. Where did you get this news? If there is merit to it then perhaps there is still time to mitigate this mistake..... BigD
201 Yyz717 : And last but not least, I hate Celine Dion even more now than I did before AC just does not get it. Celine Dion is absolutely ridiculed everywhere in
202 AWspicious : I'm with who ever said it reminds them of a giant tube of Crest toothpaste. All in all, I do like this livery more than the one it's replacing. Howeve

205 LGA777 : Has anyone at AC heard when some of the smaller aircraft (319.320) may get repainted in the new colors ? Thanks, LGA777
206 Gmonney : I think they should have got Stompin' Tom Connors.... atleast the employees could have got drunk and stomped their feet! He is an East Coast legand!!
207 Na : With a sizable fleet of more prestigious A340s and A340-500s why did AC choose a bread-and-butter 767 for this event and not a flagship aircraft?
