what was the scheduled aircraft. about a week ago aircanada sent a Tango 732 to phl, i am not sure exactly why, but it was either because the flt had already been over booked by a good number or because the scheduled aircraft was in maintenance.

Tango is not a seperate brand, it is a service offered by AC, these planes were just at the end of their rotations in the mainline system, they had been painted but not yet re-configured, the plane may have been down for unscheduled mtc, and they had time to point it so that it would be ready to enter into tango service...

The Tango fleet is all ex-CP aircraft so they had to paint them at some point or another - why not into the tango colours. It doesn't cost that much to remove J class seats and add Y class seats. Seems to me a fairly inexpensive way to utilize excess capacity.
