"'Do either of them still have any "Canadi>n" markings'
The -200s never wore Canadian titles."
That is correct. Even though AC
has/had 2 767-275s, those were ex-Pacific Western machines picked up early in the B767 days when PWA
realized it overextended itself by ordering widebodies.
picked up Canadian Pacific, to become Canadian Airlines, the Boeing model designator -x75 was used from then on, instead of the CP
designator -x17. Those two 767-275s were picked up by Air Canada prior to PWA
's merger with CP
on the other hand DID have a large collection of 767-300s, starting with its own dozen -375ERs, and a number of second-hand machines.
Of course at the time of the CP
/AC merger, AC
's 6 767-333ERs were PW
powered (as are all of its 767-200s past and present). The ex-CP machines were of course, all GE
So when merger proponents talk about "synergies" and all that merger jargon which really is bullsh*t, they really mean that large mergers cause chaos and a clash of cultures (not to mention great human grief from the job losses). And of course inflated costs from dealing with incompatible engine parts inventories, incompatible galley configurations, etc etc.
I still think that when any large enterprise thinks merger, they should think "Penn Central".
Sorry for the thread creep/rant.
