Does anyone know how many Air Canada Jazz livery planes are still in the fleet?

Not sure how many exactly, but there are still Dash 8's and CRJ-200's in green, red and orange colours, that I've seen recently.

Cool. Thank you. Do you know if these planes will be painted into the Air Canada Express livery?

Likely - however they aren't being pulled from service just for repainting into the new livery - they are being repainted as per their repaint schedule, usually during their D checks.

Ok, how often do planes go thru the D checks because it been four years since the Air Canada Jazz disappeared.

AC Jazz hasn't disappeared, just the branding. Air Canada Express is still managed by Jazz.

D checks happen every 5-6 years or so.

Sky Regional and Air Georgian also manage and run Express

VIA might have done some decent trade if Calgary-Toronto service was running, after AC88 77W had an encounter with severe turbulence en route from Shanghai and diverted. 21 hospitalised, the rest are about to leave on AC2088 (another 77W) to complete their journey to YYZ. Hopefully a smooth flight for them this time...

Why would VIA have benefited?

Pretty sure after that ride a bunch of folks probably didn't want to board a plane again so quickly, but didn't have another way to get to Toronto.

Sure they could have taken Greyhound or chartered a coach

Yeah, I kinda doubt that. Most people just want to get home.

AC Express is entering the Hamilton market, twice daily to Montreal.

http://flyhamilton.ca/news/air-canada-to-operate-service-between-montreal-and-hamilton-international/

No further announcements have been made in regards to Rouge's deferred service to YYC.

According to one article (located at http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/news/air-canada-announces-hamilton-to-montreal-direct-flights-1.3431829), the proposed Air Canada Rouge service between YHM and YYC - is now off the table (scrapped). There are no plans for flights to YYC from YHM.

An Air Canada Airbus A319-100, registration C-FYJI performing flight AC-942 from Toronto, ON to Bermuda, was enroute at FL390 over the Atlantic Ocean about 250nm south-south-east of New York, NYwhen the crew reported engine stall and decided to turn around and divert to New York’s JFK Airport.


“The crew advised they were planning to stop on the runway for an inspection. The aircraft landed safely on JFK’s runway 31R and stopped on the runway. Emergency services reported seeing nothing out of the ordinary, the aircraft subsequently taxied to the apron with emergency services in trail.

I don't know if my post is allowed here but have anyone traveled on Air Canada Rouge's new A321's and have taken a picture of its interior? There are still no interior pictures of the Rouge A321 on the internet and I really wanted to know how it looks like, since it is delivered new late last year and should have the new cabin sidewalls/interior unlike other AC Airbus A319/20/21 where they have the old interior.
