Switching to a bare metal scheme is ok, but on a new aircraft. It doesn't look so good on this older 767 that has had paint on it for the last 20+ years. Air Canada - bring the paint back!

I think its extreamly beautifull, I only wish the engines were the same colour.

I hope they are going to give sunglasses before boarding this plane!!! But is it really going to be more economical?

Good photo, shame the plane looks like it belongs in a 1950's spy movie over the soviet union

This no-paint scheme may scare people who are afraid of flying: it makes the aircraft look old and dirty.

Looks like a soup can with the label torn off ... they've definitely done bare aluminum the "wrong" way.

Wonderful shot of the 767. The 200s were first introduced by AC about 20 years ago now. (That plane isn't so new!)It is lacking paint because AC is redoing their colour scheme, and I guess this bird escaped from the hanger before it could be finished. For a better feel of the new scheme, look for the AC Embraer 175/190s. Can't wait until they get the new 777s.

Cheers from Montreal!

With all respect to AIR CANADA management, who ever approve this scheme should get fired or transferred. Do you call this RETRO!!!!

If it was new, it would look okay. Maybe they should try that scheme on their new 777.s. That would probably look alright

They stripped the aircraft off hundreds of pounds of paint in order to save weight. Its actually a desperate attempt to prevent bankrupsy. hahaha desperate measures mean desperate times.

This livery hurts my eys. It looks old and dirty, but AC ist not old and dirty.

So they should change their livery.

When I first saw this photo, thought I was looking at something from the 60s, but I do agree... needs paint. I think American Airlines had the best retro look so far to date.

Point is: We are all spoiled with glamourous color schemes. Indeed, beautyful colors, make you want to fly with that airine. Now guys, so many critics for nothing. look back in the 40`s, 50`s and 60`s even worse the 70`s with awful Braniff birds in vibrant colors. This one here looks cool and besides, Star Alliance partners seem to be in a very dificult aera.

I don't think it's that bad, but I wonder how it'll work in PR terms? Will the public admire AC's honesty in saying that it's just to save money, or will they think "are that desperate to save money?" and wonder what else they might be cutting back on?

I think it would look better if they kept the old colors on it, and polish it a little more. that greenish color does not fit with bare metal!

I like the photo, but I agree the bare metal is ugly. Reminds me of a want to be American Airlines bird.
