The Canadi>n Airlines Airbus A320

Canadian Airlines was created in March 1987 following Pacific Western Airlines purchase of Canadian Pacific Airlines (CP air), years later in 1996 Canadian was one of the founding members of Oneworld Alliance, but a downturn in the Asian economy in 1998 lead to their most profitable routes suffering and worsened their already poor financial position, and after a failed bid in early 2000 by American Airlines (already a 25% stake holder in Canadian) the airline was acquired by Air Canada leading to Air Canada having a mind blowing 90% domestic share of passengers in Canada.

Canadian operated out of its four hubs located in, Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to destinations in five continents (Asia, Europe, North & South America and Oceania)

The aircraft Canadian operated at the time of its closing include the Boeing 737-200, Boeing 747-400, Boeing 767-300er, McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 and obviously the Airbus A320

The Canadian Airbus A320 pictured above is registered as C-FNVU and still operates with Air Canada to this day. Well actually it’s parked due to COVID but it WAS still operating It is pictured in the short lived “Proud Wings” livery Canadian adopted in 1999 shortly before its demise, the livery made it to at least one example of each aircraft in their fleet minus the DC-10s which were sold off before the completion of the merger hence why no Air Canada DC-10s :(

Anyway, with only one Canadian airlines livery in the game and none of my personal favorite “Proud Wings” livery, I would love to fly this beauty in IF

Once again, new to the whole features request thing so any feedback is appreciated
Thanks,
W!ll :)

All I can ever think about when I think of Canadian is that one episode of Mighty Machines from like the 80s or 90s. God the nostalgia of that theme song.

A Canadi>n Airlines A320-200 blasting out of Montréal circa 2000 🇨🇦😍

The photographer also included a brutality honest caption only saying, “Canadian Airlines no longer exist” which is both grammatically incorrect and makes me sad 😢🤣

I really hope another Canadian livery gets added soon, just the DC-10 is not enough :(
