Air Canada CRJ-700 (2017 Livery)

Requesting this because of the new poll for the next aircraft being added, the new Air Canada livery looks beautiful on the CRJ-700, hopefully the livery on this plane or on the -900 are added. Sorry for the bad picture, best one I could get so far because non have been painted yet.

Link to picture (With other Air Canada Express planes as well)

I think I want it on the -900 more:-/


It can always be on both :)

Isn’t the CRJ-705 just a -900?


I’m pretty sure the -705 is just the 700



Interesting…Well, we learn something new every day. It’s a beautiful livery though!

So wouldn’t this be a duplicate?

Looks nice. tbh if the CRJ is being confirmed to come the IF, they devs are going to have to add the major operators. Air Canada and alot of other requested liveries falls under that category which means it will probably be added.

No. Well, sometimes. It usually depends on how airlines order the seating. ( Airlines can order various models of the same aircraft, with a different seating arrangement that gives more/less passengers )

Pretty much. Again, depends on how airlines order the seating. I can order a CRJ 701 with maybe 90 passengers and can order the same for a -900 but can also order different, I may order 96 passenger capacity.

Well Air Canada Jazz has the same seating so it’s the same aircraft with a different name.

Again, depends on how airlines go about it. In this case, I just learned from you that Air Canada has them both the same. So, technically you’re right although sometimes airlines do it differently.

@CaptainCaybrew I love the new livery

Bombardier organised the CRJ so it could be delivered differently according to different scope clauses (regional jet contracts) when the customer bought it. CRJ has 4 main product lines:

  • CRJ-200
  • CRJ-700
  • CRJ-900
  • CRJ-1000

When scope clauses require a maximum number of passengers in order to fit under a lower category of pay or to even fit under the scope clause (ie. no more than 90 passengers per plane to fit in category A, 100 in category B, etc.), it incentivizes the customer airline to order an aircraft with that maximum number of seats to fit under the scope clauses. Thus, Bombardier takes the request, adds something to reduce max capacity (such as another closet, blocked seats, etc.), and then sells it as a special model to the customer.

A good example of this is the CRJ-440, a variant of the CRJ-200. This was delivered specially to Northwest Airlines and its subsidiaries due to their scope clauses. At the time NW Airlink had a max capacity of 44 passengers on their aircraft. Simple solution: they order the CRJ-200 from Bombardier and asked for it to have a max. capacity of 44 passengers, creating the “new” CRJ-440 with the same specifications of a CRJ-200, but with a different max seating capacity and a shiny new closet to take up 6 seats. When Delta wanted a different max seating capacity, they simply removed the closet and converted it to a CRJ-200.

US Airways had a similar issue: their scope clause wanted their regional pilots flying CRJ-700 aircraft, and the CRJ-900 wouldn’t fit the size requirements. CRJ responded by building a CRJ-900, then changing the max. seating capacity to be 76 seats instead of 86, creating the “new” CRJ-705. While it has the same exterior and relatively same interior, the difference lies within the max. seating capacity, and I believe -705s can be retrofitted back into -900s.

So it really is the same aircraft, just with a different name to reflect a different max. seating capacity.

Is that a valid reason? Just because of that? Sorry it doesn’t add it to me.

A good reason would be: I like the livery

If it’s a CRJ I like it. No matter what livery.

I actually honestly like the old livery better, but this still gets my vote.

Is this post positive enough for you?

This one should be set for the CRJ-700 ;)

I would LOVE this on the CRJ-700! :)
