It's for sure, for the new 787 livery.

Although I hope it's none of the above. Can't go from one shi**y livery to another.

Best paint job is current Rouge livery. For mainline, just substitute 'Air Canada' on the side rather than 'Rouge'.

There's a thread on Airliners.net that talks about this - apparently someone in the know claims that it's definitely NOT a half maple leaf.
So I guess that eliminates number 2.

SKY is adding 5 used 175's. Certainly possible they could show up in new paint.

There's still a bunch of old Jazz planes without the express livery. I wonder if they are waiting to change those until the new design comes out.

The 300s were the charter machines in the old colors ;)

There have been multiple renderings circulated for potential new schemes all across the board.
Time for a system wide refresh of livery and uniform

Can't really say I'll miss the blue when it's gone. Like the Rouge scheme, don't really like the B scale wages it represents tho.

The new 900's for jazz sitting in Halifax are in the current AC paint. Guess they just missed the transition and will wait a few years!
