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.

This should be interesting  Smile

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.

NW had planes in basic Republic livery (with NW titles), so a lot of the DC9s have gone from hybrid to full (pre-1989) livery to Bowling Shoe to the current (though not for long) silver livery.

QF/NC's 717 fleet have seen quite a few different guises in the 7-8 years these aircraft have been in the QF Group fleet.

QF acquired Impulse in 2001 while they were in the middle of their own livery change.

almost straight away QF branded Impulse under the Qantaslink banner.

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.

After JQ's A320's replaced the 717 fleet most were leased to National Jet Systems to operate under contract for Qantas which saw them once again in the Qantaslink colours.
