In todays Toronto Star, I noticed on page 9, a full page colour ad for airbus, congratulating Air Canada on thier acquisition of the A321.
It goes as follows:
"Congratulations Air Canada, You're Raising Customer Satifaction another 35000 feet."
"Air Canadas Passengers will soon be enjoying even more space and comfort. THis is because one of our biggest customers is adding the A321 next year to its already extensive Airbus fleet. From the A318 to the A340, the Airbus range offers a level of operating efficency and passenger satisfaction to which others can only look up"
"Airbus, Setting the Standards."
Now, is this normal for either Boeing/Airbus to make advertisments about an airlines order? I think airbus paid for it, but it is also adding Air Canada tons of advertisment, for its new services.
And I must say, the A321 painted in AC colours, looks pretty bad, I hope the real life one looks better!
