What Was That A-320?

Mon Dec 17, 2001 2:29 am

I was working at my gate yesterday in TPA and noticed a white A-320 with a purple tail and bill-board style writing on the side go flying by. Before I got a good look at it , it was too far away to read the name. What in the world could that have been? I have never seen that before in TPA (Tampa). Any history?
I believe I can fly.....

It was most likely the new Mexicana A320 with the purple tail.

TANGO!!!! Thats it! Ok, now what is it and why does it have AC's logo on the tail? Low fare spin off or something?

Yes, it is a low fare subsidiary of Air Canada.

Hello,

Yes, it is indeed a low-fare subsidiary launched by Air Canada.


Best regards,

Nope, not the Mexicana. The purple didnt wrap around the tail like that and the writing
was much bigger. Without a doubt it was the Tango.

Never heard of this airline before.
I presume they are using the Air Canada 'AC' codes, does anyone know the callsign of the new airline?

Tango uses ex-CP 320s configured for 157 (I think this is right) Y class. Eventually the Tango fleet will grow to all 13 ex-CP 320s. They use Air Canada's callsign. The way to distinguish them is their use of 6000 series flight numbers.
