Air Canadas new low-cost carrier will begin flying to European and Caribbean vacation spots next year under the name Rouge, the airline said on Tuesday of the service it hopes will provide a springboard for sustained profitability.
Rouge will offer cheap flights to tourists visiting the Caribbean and Europe, starting July 1, 2013not June, as was previously announced.
The fight for share of the vacation market has become more important for Air Canada as main rival WestJet prepares to launch Encore, its Canadian regional airline. Encore promises to undercut Air Canada fares on domestic short-haul flights.

Probably not a popular airline for CFL teams....especially those who teams struggle on special teams
Though...if there are ways for Americans to fly this airline...could mean cheap flights to Euro and Carib

(Seems that the ones who understand little about the economy are economists)
In the spirit of official bi-lingualism, I hope they also prominently display the word "Red", for all of those Anglophones who do not parlez francais.

I think crash and burn were taken by Russian airlines.
