It didn't stay there for long as it's been ferried to YYZ this past night: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/c-ftjv


Will be in YYZ for a bit then back out to YLW. Won’t see passengers until January

Can we please leave the Boeing vs CS stuff out of here... there are enough threads running on that and it frankly has 0 to do with the AC/Boeing relationship... my views were well established so check before anyone cares to comment on it.

The MAX doesn't look half as bad as i expected in the new colors. The new colors are warming to me. My only big complaint is that it does look seriously like Delta until you are fairly close up. The MAX wears them as well as the A321 for sure IMHO.


I feel better now. At first sight I too thought Delta.

It looks fantastic. I agree that it'd look even better with the cockpit window frame painted too. I really like the look of the 737MAX - subjective I know - the 737 has really aged well.

Does anyone know if there is a technical reason the cockpit window frame is not painted?

I agree, with it unpainted it does lose some of the intent of the "mask".

Never was a fan of the "Toothpaste" colors. My favorite was the Double Red/Maroon line from 1988-1993. A 737MAX would look great in those colors...

I love the new livery and it looks great on the 737. It will be nice when there are multiple of these birds in operation. When does the next delivery occur?

Thank you Air Canada for making a great livery in the time of Euro White blandness. Good luck to you and your new Boeing's.

+1 for the Toothpaste. Can't for the life of me understand how they could have switched from subjectively one of the most attractive liveries to this..... Euro LCC with raccoon eyes;

There is something odd about the 737 cockpit widow frames in bare metal, with the black mask around them. I think the mask works better on other types - although I think the livery overall would be better without it and with the Maple Leaf roundel above the window line. But then it would be pretty boring, I suppose!


They have painted the FD windows all black since the first few pictures of the aircraft were taken!
Looks much better now in all black.

Boeing paint shop I guess made a mistake not painting them black so the aircraft went back into the paint shop before the delivery flight to YLW to get them painted.

I agree. I really like the new livery. Love it on the 787, the A330, and even the A320. Would look amazing on the A350 and C-series...but the 737? No way..not with those square-ish 1950s glass panes a-la'-707..

It might be Boeing policy that they won't paint the metal surround for the 737, or the default is unpainted and AC neglected to inform them to paint the metal surround black with the raccoon mask (Boeing is just going to paint exactly what AC tells them to do, if default is unpainted and they don't hear otherwise Boeing is not going to guess that AC wanted it black to match the mask).

The metal surrounds of the side windows of the A350 cockpit are actually unpainted against that plane's black mask too. Haven't looked closely enough at the A330neo to see what it is like.

Don’t like the aircraft, nor the livery.

To me the MAX looks like a chavy boy racer car with just about every mod done to it that one could think of.

Take a 60s design, slap on some bigger engines (in my opinion too big for the short stubby landing gear), add sharklets, add scimitars, add raccoon eyes. It’s just missing a few go faster stripes now to perfect the look.

Lipstick on a pig in my opinion.

So what we have is 63 identified customers ordering just over 3,900 airframes. Say at a super low ball cost of 275 billion dollars. It appears the people with brains are willing to spend a pile of money on pork.

Imagine what they could fetch with your go fast stripes.

This livery does a good job of hiding the ugly 737 nose and cockpit windows. Any interior pictures?

Still wish they had gone with the A320neo though

Your looking at a seatback and making that judgement cal, how about you actually sit in first..



Cabin looks nice but it’s a little odd that there is no divider between J and Y.

There is a divider right where the maintenance guy is. You can actually see the screens mounted on the wall for the economy bulkhead seats. :)

Remember that the current Airbus narrowbodies don't have dividers. They only have curtains dividing the J and Y cabins.

I could say the same about the divider comment, there is certainly one but hard to see with this picture. I’m familiar with both the seats on this plane and the ones their current fleet has (blue upholstery). Doesn’t look comfortable.

Yup, I’m familiar with both as well. The current blue seats are definitely more comfortable. Too bad the trend is heading towards slimline seats and stuffing them into airplanes as much as they can. Anyone know the seat model that WJA is using? Same or comparable?

And the similar 99.8% that don't care what the livery looks like. And for those that DO care, whether it makes any practical difference in which carrier they choose to book on.

I could say the same about the divider comment, there is certainly one but hard to see with this picture. I’m familiar with both the seats on this plane and the ones their current fleet has (blue upholstery). Doesn’t look comfortable.[/quote]

Yup, I’m familiar with both as well. The current blue seats are definitely more comfortable. Too bad the trend is heading towards slimline seats and stuffing them into airplanes as much as they can. Anyone know the seat model that WJA is using? Same or comparable?[/quote]


WestJet Maxes use the same seats as the UA A320s (Slim types).

I like this livery.. mostly because I hated the toothpaste livery. It looked TERRIBLE on everything.

That said, I still think AC should've taken the Rouge livery for mainline. Imagine how THAT would look on a 737MAX! :eek:

If Air Canada insists on having this mostly-white livery, it would help--not just on the 737, but on all types--if they painted up the bottom black a few more feet. More color helps, even if it's Henry Ford black.

The new livery is good, simple, professional. The black makes sense. If any of you have flown to the high north, you will see frozen bodies of water that are essentially black in colour. The toothpaste livery was unique, and looked good as well. However, it was dated and time for a refresh. The beauty is the new livery can easily be modified in the future, unlike the toothpaste livery.

Everyone here is complaining about AC’s choice of the 737. Yes, it is a 50 year-old design, but it is a proven design. Air Canada has operated Airbus’ for a long time and have determined the 737 to be the best choice for their operation going forward. I don’t hear anyone complaining about Westjet ordering the Max.

Guys, let’s move on.

So what we have is 63 identified customers ordering just over 3,900 airframes. Say at a super low ball cost of 275 billion dollars. It appears the people with brains are willing to spend a pile of money on pork.

Imagine what they could fetch with your go fast stripes.

Another a.net moronic post.


I do apologise if I offended you by stating my opinion about the astethics of this airframe in a thread discussing the same.

Well, I didn't mind the toothpaste Leyland, but somehow the new livery looks more refined, professional and crisp. I find it very elegant, and I also like the raccoon eyes...it makes the aircraft look 'mean' in a very good way...

Would a moss or dark olive green be a better option over black to mimic the Canadian mountains and lush greenery?


Absolutely! That cabin looks dark, uninviting and not at all warm. :crying: I love dark greens (fabric, please - striped.) for cabin seats. Oh, and a splash of red here and there! ;)
