      Currently discussed at Airliners.net is a livery change for Air Canada for their 80th anniversary.

      IMHO I just hope that this will not come true.

      I love the current ice-blue scheme and cannot see why they want to change such a stunning livery to something uninspired like this

      Air Canada, please do not ruin this elegant scheme!

      Are there recent new colors out there that you like?
      Personally, I think Etihad did a great job on their 787 and A380 ...
      Others?

      Cheers,

      I quite like the "toothpaste" scheme, I'll be bummed if it goes.

      Possibly Air Canada Rouge gave us all a hint of what was to come... I hope not, I too like the ice-blue scheme.

      That seems to be the trend. Look at what happened to China Eastern. Disgusting! And they have the nerve to call it an improvement.

      I'm always in doubt:
      Is it pale blue or pale green????
      Or pale turquoise????

      I really can't describe that color
      and I'm always think about when an AIR CANADA
      is at the neighbor gate here at FRA....

      Ha.......I'll add a dissenting opinion that I think I will like the change. I never did care for the "toothpaste" scheme. My favorite was the the old red tail and fuselage titles. Yes a change to the all white fuselage will be for the better this time.

      Most recent changes I think are not for the better. If they pick the lower choice with the full size maple leaf logo I think it will be a little bit better than the current one. To each his own.

      Sven,
      it seems to be neither pale blue nor pale green and even not pale turquoise )
      The toothpaste color is, as I recently learned, officially called

      ***sky silver***

      according to Air Canada ...

      Well ... ))

      This color seems to be like coroguard ... it looks different every time you look at it.
      At least the Xtracolor can stuff looks like being something like ice-blue.

      Cheers,
      Christian

      It could be that this is the result of many pictures taken in Canada with snow on the ground, which reflects the sunlight (or not if there is no snow), making the belly look lighter.

      I really hope the do not change the livery. Not only do I find the current scheme better, I also find it a waste of money to change your branding every 5 - 10 years. For how long has the current livery been around? That money could have been spend on much better projects if you ask me (I know they won't).

      If they do decide to change it I hope it will be the third option, which is like cola light. It is not better or healthier, it is just less worse...

      I'm not thrilled with those proposed designs, but I've always found the "ice blue" (which I swear is green) nauseating. It seems to have no "Canada" to it at all. I loved the former dark green tail. Should have kept that.

      I quite liked that one too, but apparently few others did as well.

      Well, I liked the BA world colors scheme too. Apparently I was the only person on the planet who thought it was the most brilliant marketing scheme ever devised.

      I liked the comment about the BA world colors scheme so much I started a new topic about it. Beautiful......not like the current or proposed Air Canada colors.

      I like the big Maple leaf on Air Canada birds.
      No matter if it is on toothpaste or not!
