A question about Canadian's 737's that are being merged into Air Canada. First off, how many are there (Bill Harm's site is down tonight, so I can't look there); secondly, how many 737's have had the vertical stabilizer repainted with the AC maple leaf, and how many still have the large proud bird covering the fuselage?
Hopefully, AC183 or someone will know.

are getting old.
I have seen some in transitional livery at New York/LaGuardia, where
Canadian operates services to Toronto. All of those flights operate w/
