Air New Zealand takes swipe at Air Canada after it reveals “unique, all black” aircraft

Air New Zealand has called out North American airline, Air Canada after it revealed one of its new aircraft.

Air Canada posted an image of its new Jetz aircraft on Twitter – an aircraft that is painted entirely black.

“Introducing a new look for our Air Canada Jetz aircraft that charter sports teams, musicians and more. A twist on our mainline livery, select Jetz aircraft will have an all-black livery, making them instantly recognizable and feature a modernized, upgraded cabin.”

Air New Zealand responded to the tweet within hours.

“We may have blacked out for a sec, but this is looking oddly familiar… 🤔🖤✈️”

The Kiwi airline is known for having numerous “all black” aircraft in its fleet.

It’s not the first time Air New Zealand has used X (formerly Twitter) to point out familiar marketing moves by other airlines.

Last year it tweeted at Emirates about its use of a goose in a series of television and digital commercials.

“Gerry ya goose, you got the wrong airline! 🤦‍♂️” it tweeted.
