New Air Canada Livery

What do you guys think of the new Air Canada livery? I think it's pretty damn nice.

For those of you that haven't seen it yet (probably everyone else here) below are some pics:

It sucks.

But then again, I am Canadian.

I watched Air Canada go into bankruptcy, break ALL of its union contracts (even the pilots had to take a pay hit).

They had to rework the banking twice to keep alive.

Then they finally get out of bankruptcy and rather than reinstate the reduced wages, they hire Celine Dion to sing (wonder how much that cost) and they repaint several aircraft.

They also signed a contract to buy Brazilian jets in the past 2 weeks.

Seems they're spending money like a drunken sailor lately.

I'm curious to see what the board gets for a bonus at the end of the year. When everyone else takes a forced pay cut, you know they're going to make a lot of money for themselves.

Visually, the planes look great.

It's how they got to be that way that sucks...\
