This is certainly innovative. Air Canada will allow people (via Facebook) to choose the name of the new low-cost leisure airlne.

I like "AirEh". Of course it must be pronounced with a rising inflection on the second syllable.

It has to work in both English and French.

They're only asking for suggestions. They don't say they'll accept any of them.

CP called it's longhaul international business class product "Royal Canadian Class" for a few years. I recall KLM complaining about the name. AMS was of course CP's major gateway in Europe then. KLM called their first class product "Royal Class" for years and didn't like the word "Royal" in the name of the new CP J product (which used the same seats previously used for F class before F class sleeper seats were introduced).

It wasn't long after that KL dropped F class and introduced their own upgraded business class product. CP also eliminated F class around the same time, as did AC.

I'm sure they could come up with lots of good names.. Air Maple or how about Avril? 

If they go with the latter, they could come up with a jingle in the commercials
"Tell me.. why do you have to go and make things so damn trashy?
But I see the way you're priced like you're nobody and that gets me excited"

I believe DL used that. We know where that is today. I believe the Jazz product is also Canadian.

Quoting PlanesNTrains (Reply 21):

Funny!. There's also Beefeaters which is a English or Canadian brand of spirits.

Canada also has a rich history in "First Nation". It would be neat to see something which would pay tribute to The native Canadian Indian populous.
