    I had almost forgotten the old color scheme. Much prefer the new one! Thanks.

    Yeah, the red scheme looks dated. Though I'm not a fan of the slimy green color scheme either. I really liked the black tail with the red maple leaf scheme.

    I agree on the livery. But I do still like the old logo, with the simpler, cleaner maple leaf.

    Never really liked the double stripe logo. Both the font and the maroon. This is my fav:[​IMG]

  7. I agree with both QSQ and Infinite1K :) The current toothpaste tube colour scheme is extremely ugly: it reminds me of toothpaste stains in the sink if you haven't rinsed properly :p

    Landing or takeoff?

    Landing = flaps down

    I like the black front! Almost like a Canada Goose's face!

    Considering its a flat black, I bet it was to cut down on the glare from the sun hitting the cockpit and blinding the pilots.

  19. It was great. I don't even remember the F/J configuration anymore but I do remember one side being non smoking and the other being a smoking side..........it was ludicrous and only kep smoke from being blown in your face if you were on the ns side

    I like this one. Not sure I've ever seen it in real life but it just looks good

    That scarf is going to flap around a lot at 35K feet. Hopefully they tied it tight (and not around the doors)!

    I flew AC's 741 twice. YYZ-TPA (!). Middle seats, but still fun, from what I remember. I was maybe 12 at the time.

    Only pure jet that AC had I have not flown on is the DC-8...
