I doubt this is connected, but it might be--yesterday at BOS I saw an all-white jet outside what I think was the AA hangar. I can't remember exactly what kind of plane it was but it might have been a 757, with the engines under the wings. Was this an aircraft scheduled to be repainted?

Doug Parker has hardly any thing to do with which planes are painted, that would probalbly fall under the the operations department or maintenance departments. The CEO of any business has very little to do with the day to day operations of the airline. People put way too much weight on what a CEO can do with the running of the airline. That is why you have VP's that oversee the managers that run the airline. The CEO is in charge of the corporate side of the airline and the Board of Directors who make the decisions concerning the financial aspects, the finalizing and approving of major decisions, not whether an aircraft gets painted or not, that really falls under the perview of the managers that are put in place to make those day to day decisions.

There is no repainting schedule for the US fleet, since the merger hasn't been consummated yet. Once it's had its day in the BK court and run by the regulators, and approved by the shareholders ... then you'll see a schedule sometime after that. Think in terms of months from now.

That won't even begin until after the merger is approved and escrow closed. While they have an agreement to merge, they are still fully separate companies. US wouldn't begin painting airplanes only to have to repaint them back if (albeit unlikely) the merge didn't go through.

Then agaiin - AA do have shedloads of 737 and A32S coming into the fleet over the next few years, so I'd expect them to phase out the MD-80s as these get delivered. If they can avoid the expense, they'll probably try not to repaint any of them before they leave the fleet.

It's just the opposite. The Connection brand is going to disappear, and now all the regional aircraft flying for AA will be branded as "American Eagle" and, in small letters, "Operated by..." (American Eagle Airlines, Chautauqua, Expressjet, Skywest and Republic for the moment). This is why American Eagle (the airline) will have to change its name, because the brand American Eagle belongs to AMR.

As a side note (and my apologies for veering slightly off-topic), I recall reading one ot those airline fleet books quite a few years ago, and with the exception of Executive Airlines (OW), I could've sworn that American Eagle's original name was Flagship Airlines (after its merger with other smaller Eagle operators (such as Wings West, Corporate Air, and Simmons Airlines - not to be confused with 9E's callsign of Flagship). Is that still the case? Does AMR retain ownership of that name, or has it been sold?

The 762 is understandable but the large numbers of M80's and 752's would suggest that some will be repainted (hopefullly). I think the new scheme will particularly suit the 752.

I was going to say..... at least SOME of the 757s have got to be painted. I mean you've got several that AA's had all along, some that they got from TWA, and now the rest from US. Come on, that's several hundred 757s.

AA have 100 in service now, and US 24. Total 124. Presumably the US fleet will be repainted sooner so I hope we see some 752's in the new AA scheme.

Delta now owns the majority of the ex-TW 757s. The rest are at other carriers. AA has (and will continue to have, post-merger) only RR-engined 757s. The TW birds were PW.

Don't hold your breath for the MD-80's, 767-200's or 757 getting new paint. There is no plan to paint them. The dock plan shows almost all the 767-300's getting painted by the end of the year. But the dock plan DOES NOT show any 757,767-200 or MD-80's getting painted as of 02/20/2013.

There may be no plan to paint them now but seeing that AA still plans on having the MD80 and 757 in it's fleet thru 2017 I think it's a very safe bet that we'll see these planes painted at some point.

First shot of a Embraer 145 in new livery:

The new livery seems to look better on the smaller regional jet rather than mainline. Perhaps it's a combination of the more proportional size of "American Eagle" vs. "American" along the fuselage, and/or the tail not being as domineering or it being topped by the t-tail. Whatever it is, the new look appears more suitable for this much smaller size. Not great, but more suitable.

And once again I have to say that Eagle aircraft 668 is currently a "Komen" pink striped aircraft which was added to the pink stripe fleet only in the past couple of years. The aircraft was completely painted new and the pink stripe was actually painted on instead of the decal like earlier pink striped aircraft. It looks really great as the paint isn't that old yet. I just wonder if they intend to introduce a new pink striped aircraft on the new livery with this aircraft. To me it doesn't make much sense to paint over an aircraft on which the paint is only a couple of years old if they are just going to paint the new livery on it when there are so many others out there which really could use some new paint.

Is it just me or did the new paint job "tip off" the fact the merger was almost a done deal and very close to bein formally announced? I say this because if you look at the new scheme it is pretty obvious it draws heavily on the schemes used by US Air. At first I wasn't too sure about the look but after seeing it several times here on the net; I really like it!

Below photo shows the obvious similarities between the AA and US schemes, the grey lines and the idea of the stripes on the new AA tail logo also comes from the stripes used on the US aircraft. The new tail colors come from the old AA tail logo and the U.S. flag on the US tail logo now comprises the entire tail of the new AA tail logo. Pretty clever coming to think of it:

DFW and MIA have both been closed as ATR bases, and SJU will close in April and all the ATR will be returned to the lessors.

It is expected that we will see again some turboprops with the American Eagle colors, but operated by a 3rd party regional airline. What is still to be determined is if it will be from SJU only, or also from MIA or other hubs.

Now that I read this, I have read it before yes. Even so, if a third party will fly for AA Eagle, the aircraft will wear the AA colors and this is what I had in mind. Any company flying on behalf of AA Eagle, will most likely have an agreement (such as the Capacity Purchase Agreement AA Eagle has with Republic Airways?) I would assume(?)

So technically we might still see the ATR72 with the new AA Eagle colors, just operated by a third party.

I still say that painting the winglets solely in the same base color as the fuselage is boring. Considering that US has its logo on winglets, DL has winglets the same blue as the tail/underside of the fuselage, and UA has winglets painted blue with a gold stripe, I don't get the solid silver/gray.

I was talking to a friend of mine who is a 737 captain. He's a bit interested in what AA does with the winglets on the 737 MAX, since it's split like the winglets on the MD-11. From a safety perspective, the lower part of the winglet needs to have a contrasting color.

My bet is that there will just be a small strip of red paint along the very bottom of the lower tip (or perhaps a border all the way around like KL does on the MD-11). There are quite a few 737 operators who will probably be faced with similar issues when/if they take MAXs in the future.

That's just the lighting. It's more of a pearlescent gray, though not as easily noticeable as Virgin Atlantic's color scheme. It's definitely NOT gun metal gray, though.

This shows up in one of American Airlines' videos describing the development process for the new brand. In a quick shot, they show a MD-80 at FTW with sections of various gray/silver paint on the sides.

It is still curious why they painted the B757-200 as a prototype only to then to revert it to the now old scheme.

I've heard it called DWH as long as I've been with AA - so no, it's not just since the closure of AFW.

AA kept the name the same as Delta called it. For AA its an important distiction as it a main base like TUL and not part of the DFW line maintenance operation. Mechanics have to bid as they would another station unlike the other AA hangers on the west side of the airport. Those are part of DFW line and are on a shift bid not station bid.

It is still curious why they painted the B757-200 as a prototype only to then to revert it to the now old scheme.

That was painted on a retired AA 757 at ROW. It was merely a prototype and was probably painted over immediately afterwards. If you go to ROW, you may find an all grey 757 parked there now. I highly doubt it was painted back into ex AA colors which consist of the red stripe being painted over with blue

Both the CRJ and ERJ look real sharp in these colors! So beautiful on a SMALLER plane. . . unfortunately not the case for the regular ones.
The reason I say this is that the contours of the new colors fit very well against a regional jet.

Not necessarily; the corporate logo has changed, true. However, AA as a brand has been established for over forty years. Their website is still aa.com, so I doubt "AA" as a brand will suffer at the hands of the new livery.

I think it can suffer as the "AA" in their marketing is clearly linked to the letters AA on their previous tail logo. Now it is American and not AA. American to me clearly wants to get rid of their old image and start anew. Even if American will keep the "AA" marketing I think it doesn't fit anymore but this is just my opinion.

Looking at the pictures of 803NN, does anyone know if during the repaint they painted the wings as well? I noticed some dirt around the flap canoes, and the traditional jetway markings around the L1 door.. How long has it been since 803NN got repainted?

I wonder if this will be the rotation MQ puts their birds into the paint shop. Since the same aircraft is normally scheduled to fly LAX-ASE-DFW-ASE-LAX, will the newly painted bird fly the DFW-ASE-LAX leg and the a/c that flew LAX-ASE-DFW fly to AMA to receive paint? This is the only CRJ-700 DFW sees after all.

I would be remiss if I didn't remind everyone that I would not use the list to determine specific nose/tail numbers. It was compiled as a guide to when we should see aircraft painted. The specifc nose numbers for thos slots are always dynamic and can be changed at the last minute depending on the needs of the operation. The important thing to remember is that those are slots.

There has already been deviation to the list. Its easy to update aircraft specific info as it unfolds.

I know it happens with the RGA/RGG for the 77W's as well when they ferry from PAE.

737AA-

For some reason the delivery flight does not show up on the RGA sometimes. It will spend the next 5 or 6 days at DWH getting "Americanized". Its EIS is scheduled for around the 15th with a flight to SFO. Once in SFO the "Sale-leaseback" transaction will take place, then it will be free to fly about the system.

The other day its sister ship 3KD went through the sale-leaseback at SFO, and it did not go as quick as hoped and created a fairly long delay.

Due to liability issues the aircraft cannot be moved until the transaction is complete and the new registration is affixed to the aircraft.

For some reason the delivery flight does not show up on the RGA sometimes.

I think this is something that has to be manually added by the aircraft routers at MOC in Tulsa. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't, as you've noticed. It may have something to do with the fact that certain items on the post-delivery BOW aren't yet complete, such as uploading any necessary airline-specific settings (AOC) in the ACARS, etc...

This livery has really grown on me. When I first saw the photo of the 77W, I thought it was fugly. Seeing it on other aircraft types, I am starting to like it.

N803NN definitely is. She was at Terminal D, Gate D-18, KDFW, Friday, March 8, between I think 1230 and 1730 CST, inbound from KFLL and outbound to KLAX. Between trips there was a chance to get a closer look at her and the new colors are growing on me. Meanwhile, 77W N718AN was moved to D25 for the EGLL flight and it was interesting to see both aircraft visible along the flight line more-or-less near one another when we taxied out.

3DP ferried from ROW to DFW last night, but does't have a routing loaded into the system as of today.

3DR/N982AN ferried to ROW from DFW last night trading with 3DP.

Both of these aircraft were scheduled to be painted at GUS but ended up going to ROW for some reason. Not sure what the deal is there.

3KF/N920NN should be delivered in the next couple of days in the new livery and then ferried to DFW/DWH for post delivery work prior to revenue service.

Ok thanks. On the next update we can remove that one from the list. Doesn't it seem crazy that this livery was introduced two months ago and yet the new 737's are still being delivered in the old livery? Why does it take so long to begin painting them in the new scheme?

Nothing moves fast at Boeing....my coworker at BFI indicated that 3KF was to be painted in the new scheme but again, nothing works fast there. I guess the best thing is to see what shows up at DWH. Sounds like Ryan can confirm when they arrive there.

7LD is back from paint and in revenue service-it was ferried to LAX 3/21 (probably for training)
7LE was delivered 3/19 from Boeing in the new livery- http://paineairport.com/kpae6131.htm -and is undergoing pre-service checks at DFW/DWH
3DR/N982AN is schedued to ferry from ROW to DFW as AA9679 at 1200 today (3/22)
3DU/N989AN is next to be painted and will probably ferry to ROW from DFW tonight (3/22) sometime after 2100

Interesting note on 7LD, its first revenue trip was AA1742/DFWTUL and return leg as AA2287/TULDFW yesterday afternoon. A lot of AA non-revs were treated to this unusual equipment swap. It was done to support the new DFW-LHR flights, TUL is an alternate on the LHR-DFW legs when DFW has wx. Ramp markings, gate equipment, ground personnel needed to be confirmed.

It was ferried for marketing reasons. The aircraft will undergo a photo shoot @ LAX then ferry to MHV and SBD for more photo's. It will also fly over the Sierra Nevada Mountains as well as the coast for additional filiming.

772 nose number 7AG (N776AN) is at VCV right now, with an estimated completion date of 4/8. However, it looks like additional MX needs to be done so I'm not too confident on that date.

As of now, there's nothing in the dock plan for any 757s or MD80s. However, I heard a rumor (take this with a grain of salt) that they will be painted starting in 2014. I would wager that we'll see some examples of both aircraft types in the new paint, especially the 757 since they'll be around into the early '20s.

I'm looking forward to the 757 - from what I can see in FSX, it looks like that airframe will lend itself well to the new livery:

Boeing probably already started working on those prior to the introduction of the new scheme early this year. It takes several months to build an airliner. You know, when Boeing starts building an airliner scheduled to be delivered to a particular airline, they already paint the rudder in the paint job of the airline in question before the completed airplane is sent to the paint hangar. So they probably already painted the rudder in plain gray.

Yep, I missed that, my counterpart in BFI said the first aircraft delivered in the new livery would be mid March. According to the dock plan it should have been 3KF. I will ask him again which NN it will be.

The first 772 in the new colors is scheduled to ferry from VCV to DFW today as flight 4/1 as flight 9675 leaving VCV at 1400 arriving DFW at 1840 however these times are rarely accurate. Someone in DFW should be on the look out for it!

Is it just me or do the engines look a little bare? Now that it seems this livery is going to stick - and I have to say in person it's a lot more stunning (in a good way) than on the screen - I think the engines should have something small like the new stylized eagle? The 77W looks 90% gray with some logo on it - and I think that would help, especially when you look at it from the sides.

Having seen a 767 and two 737 at LAX a few weeks back, the new scheme is growing on me. However I think the winglets on the 737s and eventually A319/A321 are too blank. I think the logo would fill the void nicely.

If AA has to polish bare metal every two years, and the last MD-80 will be retired between 2017 and 2019, it seems to me that it might be worth it to repaint the MD-80s that will still fly for another 4 to 6 years.

I was on two MD-80s in the past couple of weeks. One had Main Cabin Extra. So, if some of the MD-80s are staying around long enough to merit having MCE put in, then it makes sense to have them repainted.

Remember that the new paint scheme is supposed to reflect the fact that the old carrier that got into deep financial trouble is history. So, why have more than 150 MD-80s in the old livery for the rest of their time with AA? Besides, AA is repainting Embrears, and one has to assume that they will eventually be replaced with larger Embrears within the next 5 to 7 years.

Will any of the 135s be repainted in the new colors? I was asking myself that question today when I saw an ERJ-135 flying over NYC, descending into LGA. I doubt they will because Eagle is planning on getting rid of them, maybe one or two at the most would be repainted.

Most likely not as I believe they are supposed to be out of the fleet by the end of the year. The E135 will probably be the only current fleet type/variant that will never see the new paint...I don't see the advantage of painting them when they are so close to retirement.

I would say the chances are 0.01%, because in just 8 months all the remaining E135s will be retired and returned to Embraer, as well as the stored E135s.

The stored 135's are already off the books and the remaining will be phased out by the end of the year. Most likely we wont see a 140 painted in the new livery either as these are the next aircraft to go. E175 flying by RP will most likely replace all CR7 flying at ORD and we'll see most of the CR7 flying from NYC.

I have a feeling the new tail is already doing its job.
On the way back from the NY Auto show over the weekend, I saw this obscure grey 777 on approach into JFK.
Then once the tail was visible, "aha! American."
I felt like one of those people in their commercials, staring at the sky.

The RP E140 contract has them flying the type through 2015 right? Eagle still has a lot of 140s in the fleet to right? I honestly think if they are going to be in the fleet at least a few years, they should be painted. If they are to be repainted, RP is going to have to have their schedule paired a bit as they are already stretched pretty thin at ORD.

2015 is just two years away. The mainline fleet may be close to repainted by then especially if you consider the US fleet. Not sure I see painting the MQ 140's if they are just going to be gotten rid of. As far as the RP 140's you will see some painting on them when the "Connection" branding disappears. Will they be painted into the new livery? Time will tell.

I agree, I can see some of them getting the new livery, I'm just saying its not in any of the short or long term maintenance planning documents. They may get it done at TIMCO and therefore not need a seperate line to accomplish which would explain it not being on the planning documents as they show the plans for maintenance lines that must be funded. I'm not sure if TIMCO has the facilities to strip and paint though.

It is true that the 762 is the least likely to be repainted. It may not be likely but it is not an impossibility. I'm convinced there is at least a 1% chance that at least 1 (out of the 15 left in the fleet) will be repainted.

757: I'm convinced at least 1 will be repainted, out of 100.

MD-80: I'm convinced at least 1 will be repainted, out of 180.

7AG/N776AN is the only 772 painted so far, you only need to track this aircraft as the 773's are working LHR and GRU out of DFW and JFK. As of today it is not routed NRT in the near future, but routings are dynamic and can change at the last minute.

Question.....Why does the paint look metallic in the following pic?

Yet, opaque or gray in others?

My understanding is that it is metallic. I think other photos just don't have the right light, or the camera equipment isn't good enough to capture it. Having flown the 77W several times now, I can say for certain it looks much better in person, than in photos, because it doesn't appear battleship gray. The photo you linked does a great job of portraying how it really looks.

This livery is all about the lighting. I was very fortunate to fly the 77W last week from JFK-LHR. Here are a couple of shot of it pulling into the gate. Look at the difference a few seconds can make in the appearance. These pictures are untouched unedited.



It's an absolute beauty of an aircraft inside and out!

Thank you for your answers, interesting how light can play such a major role.

It looks stunning in the right light.

I would say the chances are 0.01%, because in just 8 months all the remaining E135s will be retired and returned to Embraer, as well as the stored E135s.

PLEASE tell me those aren't being replaced with CR2s!!

Finally was able to see the New AA livery in person at LHR today. While the weather wasn't the best, it looked pretty good in my eyes. Even saw a second one! The Aircraft I spotted were N721AN as AA51 to DFW, and N719AN as AA101 to JFK. Will post photos later.

Why does the paint look metallic in the following pic?

To be honest, that particular photo isn't "bad," per se (art is subject to interpretation), but it would never have gotten accepted at A.net - it appears there has been some serious editing done to the colors and contrast (it looks to actually be a type of HDR image). It's not quite fair to compare this photo with others that haven't received this "glamor treatment" in an image editing program.

Quoting william (Reply 246):

Agreed. However, I'm not sure I'd classify the linked photo as the "right light," since it's been digitally enhanced pretty noticeably. I don't think the livery would ever really "pop" that much in real life.
