As uncomfortable as they were, and the lack of amenities, they were a very unique flying experience by a major operator. 

Although they're still operating out west, and by EVAS in the east.

I think C-FITL has the new livery. It's like a throwback of Air Canada 90's and British Airways Landor Livery.

Yes, that frame has been repainted. 7 of Air Canada's 19 777-300ER fleet have been repainted into the new livery. 

At present, it looks like Air Canada is focusing painting efforts on the Express aircraft.

I was wondering if they're phasing them out as well. YZR-YYZ flights are moving from 5 daily B1900's to 2-3 daily Jazz DH-8. 

The 1900's were never painted in the new scheme and left plain white. 

Yes Air Canada wants to all B1990's gone due to no washrooms on board. This will be slowly over the next few years

IIRC at least Georgian's had a single lavatory at the back. Nothing spectacular, actually quite cramped, but still a toilet.

Switching the B1900's to larger planes on lower frequencies frees up slots for AC.

Every Air Georgian B1900 I've been on had a lavatory (though they're nothing to write home about, even the MAX 8 ones are better). It may be the EVAS ones that don't.

Air Canada has cancelled their contract with Air Georgian and is transferring Georgian's flying to Jazz.

https://nationalpost.com/news/regional-airline-loses-1-5m-passenger-contract-with-air-canada-but-denies-safety-concerns-a-factor?fbclid=IwAR0sZkVWVq4-GygSjKBauFW7-76r7crmjUSmuDwfO1Vq6TS4il3_W66waVg

With that, Georgian's 12 CRJ-200s will be transferred to Jazz, Jazz's YYZ CRJ pilot base will reopen, and 14 new CRJ-900s will be added to the Jazz fleet.

Air Canada has released their Q4 2018 results. Some key notes:

- Alongside the ex-TAP A330s coming in 2019, Air Canada is getting an additional A330 in 2020.

- Embraers are gone as of 2020, as expected.

- Retirement of the A320s goes into full swing in 2019, with some transfers to Rouge.

- As a surprise, the Express Dash-8-100s are going to be fully retired in 2019, while phasing out of the CRJ100/200s and Dash-8-300s begins.

- 8 Dash-8-400s are leaving the fleet in 2020.
