As WestJet embarks on its transformation to becoming a full service carrier, one of their changes includes updating its fleet’s livery to reflect a mix of its Canadian roots and upcoming world class status.

Their 787-9 will feature a proper three-class cabin (business, premium economy, and economy), while their narrow-bodies will be repainted. The rumor mill also suggests that WestJet’s narrow-body fleet will receive an updated business cabin to rival that of its competitors, offering wider seats in a 2-2 configuration, versus the current 3-3 setup with the middle seat blocked. We have no word as to when this will roll out though.

In the mean time, we were able to get some close up photos of the first MAX 8 in the new livery at Toronto-Pearson, thanks to our WestJet spotting friend, Adam.
