from a guy who has been right about air canada so often, he works at GECAS according to him. so he is in the know, more then me at least. Appaerently it is costing Air Canada more then originally planned and it is cheaper to just leave the fuselage, plus passangers may have been saying they like the planes with the new tail better then the full new paint scheme. PLus only 15 were painted to the full scheme so it isn't too far into the program. I like the scheme with the tail done only better myself.
here is the exact quote:
"Air Canada after looking at the costs of the "Pearl Blue" paint on the
livery have decided to only change the tails to the new look maple leaf.
The fusulage will remain white with red titles. Only 15 planes so far have
recived the new paint. I was told that was it as the cost was to high. So
the blue is out and white is in. "
