Hey B767. To answer your first question, I think AC is getting rid of their 747-400's because they only operate three of and they are moving towards a more standardized, common fleet. Also, the -400s are combi versions with only 260 seats so the A330 will be more efficient and offer similar capacity. Question 2: no, the A319's were never seen in the old AC colours. Deliveries of those began in 1996 and the new colours were introduced in 1992. And, no, I dont believe there are any old colour planes left. As for your last question, I can't help you there. Hope I've helped you out.

Ok, here we go
1. Air Canada is NOT replacing their 747-400s. That is a future option but no decision
has been made as of yet. They are making money off them strictly for the cargo they
carry, the passengers are just along for the ride. I verified this with Air Canada's high time
2. The 319 deliveries started in 96', after the livery change.
3. No. All of the planes currently operated by Air Canada are in the new livery. The
only plane left in the old livery is a Viscount in the Western Canada Aviation Museum.
4. FS98 versions can be found at My site:

Thanks for clearing that up, C-GAGN. The fact that they are combis and have such a high cargo capacity would make replacing them with an A340 totally unrealistic. I never thought about that...i always thought it was the cargo that was along for the ride.
