Air Canada just redesigned the look of its planes

The next time you fly Air Canada, your plane might look a little different, well, at least from the outside.

That's because the airline revamped its look-and-feel in honour of Canada's sesquicentennial, or its 150th anniversary.

At simultaneous media events in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, Air Canada revealed that its fleet would soon feature a new black and white colour scheme that highlights the company's signature "rondelle". This logo will now be back on each plane's tail.

These uniforms are supposed to have a "stylish Canadian look which balances compelling visual aesthetics with functionality comfort and durability."

Air Canada also debuted new in-flight food options, but most of these yummy-looking meals will be limited to international business class patrons.
