Painters got the logo wrong way round on starboard fin. All other Logos OK.

Nice catch..at least they did not use the Cathay Pacific stencil makers and call it Air Canda.

Please explain WHY, after I already clicked on this article, I come to a page where I must click again to get to the article? I get it if there was the usual plethora of advertising. I would like that even less, but it’s explainable. I don’t get this, because my comments would come AFTER I read the article....

Would have liked to see it, bit Twitter decided no one should be able to see it, I guess.

Time for some change? This is Air Canada's new livery - just a year old and it is one of the sharpest and boldest liveries with its distinctive bandit mask.

I can see that. I live in Canada and my home airport, well also my favourite in the world, is YYZ.

Video: First Air Canada A220-300 Rolls Out Of Paintshop

Air Canada’s first Airbus A220 rolled out of the paint shop at Bombardier’s Mirabel facility. The plane is expected to be delivered to the Canadian flag carrier in December.

The brand-new aircraft will now move to pre-flight operations before taking off for its maiden flight later during this fall. Air Canada placed an order for 75 A220s in February 2016. The airline signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) with Bombardier for the purchase of up to 75 CSeries CS300 (now A220-300).

The deal contemplated 45 firm orders plus 30 options, including conversion rights to the A220-100 variant. Based on the list price, the order was valued at approximately US$3.8 billion in 2016.

The orders continue Yet bombardier stock market share remains low!

Probably because Bombardier owes so much, has little control over the consortium that Airbus is now a major shareholder in, and have basically got out of commercial aviation.
