Canadian Airlines Airbus A320-200
While I’m extremely happy that the devs added a Canadian livery for the DC-10, I still think some of the other members of the fleet should be added too, seeing as the aircraft are already in IF.
But first, a little bit about Canadian Airlines:
Canadian was Canada’s second largest carrier, serving the most destinations in Canada (yes, more than Air Canada), and 55 in other countries. They were result of a merger between Canadian Pacific Airline (you may have seen their big, orange and silver jets), and Pacific Western Airlines. Canadian has the distinction of being the world’s first airline to have a website, as well as the first airline to allow online bookings. Ever seen an Air Canada A320-200 or 767-300? It may have started out in a Canadian Airlines livery! After the acquisition of Canadian by Air Canada in 2001, AC kept flying most of the jets that were previously operated by Canadian, including the 747-400, the 767-300, and the A320-200. The 747-400s have since been retired from Air Canada’s fleet. Canadian had three main liveries during it’s lifetime. The first, as seen above, is the livery used on the DC-10 in IF, was a classic. The second one had a large Canadian goose painted on the tail. The third, used after the merger had been agreed, was an Air Canada livery but with the words “Canadian”. Canadian never had a single fatality or injury in its 14 year history.
I think this would be an excellent edition to IF. Not only would it add to the variety of liveries IF has to offer, but the plane is already in IF, and it would also provide an interesting insight into aviation history, into one of OneWorld’s founding members, and what many may have said, was “Canada’s Airline.” Please vote, and let me know what you think below!
