Which aircraft have stayed with the same airline but been in the most colour schemes?
I'm guessing some older Delta aircraft that were in widget, and have been through to the latest colours which would be four, are there in in more than four? Or what others have been in that many colours? All within the same airline is what I am wondering.

No major airline has changed its liveries as often as Delta did in the past 11 years. 4 liveries in just over ten years is surely unique.
As for a single plane I would expect that the "Spirit of Delta" will get the crown, 767-232 N102DA. It carried the widget livery, at first a basic version with a large 767 on its tail, later with golden special titles, in 1996 it carried the Atlanta Olymics special livery, then again the widget, 2004 the battleship grey 75th anniversary scheme, then the 2001-2007 scheme, and on retiring it again the old widget. 7 liveries, one airline.
in 2004 QF transformed Impulse into their LCC Jetstar almost all aircraft served JQ in a interim scheme although a couple wore full colours and two particular aircraft wore logojet advertising one for Avis/Budget (each company had one side of the aircraft) the other started off with "LYNXjet" for the deoderant brand however due to a dissagrement over marketing between JQ and Unilever the aircraft was repainted with a Christmas scheme before entering service again after Christmas the aircraft saw a Dominos Pizza scheme until JQ phased it out.
