I sure hope it looks like that conceptual livery that was posted in an a.net thread from a few weeks ago.

They have it posted on our employee site...a preview picture but you can only see a very small portion of the fuselage....it's got a dark blue bottom with red strip above it and the top is silver/gray with wavy lines like the HP scheme....hehe...they are teasing us.

There is also some buzz floating around that then new company will "Honor the company's of the past" So the guess is that there will be possibly special liverys of PSA, Piedmont, the early America West, and others.

I believe that a complete re-branding is in order. No hybrids of the current AWA and US schemes. A corporate re-indentity should be done right with a completely fresh new look representing a fresh start for the newly combined carrier.

I do think that USAiways should keep the Blue/Red/White(Gray) color scheme.. anything else and they should change the name.. how can an airline with the name US in it NOT have Red/White/Blue.. so I believe that it will be a hybrid of the two.. with the R/W/B colors..

Which A320 is getting the new livery, and where is it being repainted at?

You're probably right! The gray lines look straight...not wavy like on the HP scheme....now if I could only see the nose and tail...hehe.

I kind of like the wavy lines, should be interesting to see the real product when it comes out! It would be smart to have something totally new but still resembling the past products to a little extent.

No idea what tail number is getting painted or where. Not sure if it is a US Airways or America West aircraft either. It's probably some plane that will be coming out of a heavy check soon.

FlyBoy, how are you accessing Compass right now?
I've been trying to log on all morning, and it's been down for 'routine maintenence 'till 12:00 MST.

Grrr... this always has to happen at the worst times! To make things worse, my vacation starts on the 23rd, so I won't be anywhere near that aircraft if it gets into PHX at 6:30-ish.

Can't wait to see it!!! I second that I'd LOVE to see our theme planes in paint schemes with Piedmont, Allegheny, PSA, and the 'old' America West flying around to show our history.

That would be a nice homage to all of the predecessors that have morphed into the new USAirways. PSA's smile would be a welcome sight to behold...

I just might have to drive to work (as opposed to taking the train) a little bit earlier that morning and detour to PHL to see this plane. My driving route goes right by PHL.

143 7E72004 : For the most part i like it...just that the flag on the tail does not look like it belongs there.
144 Supa7E7 : The above livery looks completely unstylish and crappy. Sorry. As does HP's current livery. No coincidence there. The Thai-style USAirways (new logo)
145 Flyboyaz : I think it looks wonderful...as does our current livery...it will be sad to see it go. We should all know for sure by tomorrow!!

149 Drerx7 : There is a heavy cost associated with those intricate World tails and Aztec liveries--I think that plays more of a role when choosing a color scheme.
150 Positiverate : I agree; further more the flag should be "backwards"; giving the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the aircraft moves forward. One thing I c

152 Aloha717200 : Good point Matt. Still, I'm holding out for a PSA smile on this new scheme. Chances of that are remote, but there IS a chance. And if it does happen,

163 UALPHLCS : A17 is close to the fence and the departures road isn't it? Or are they all even numbers?
164 A330323X : Those are the even numbers that you can see from the road. A17 is near the Club and the Lufthansa gate.

167 Cltguy : I am glad that the "Heritage Circle" is confirmed. Piedmont Airlines was truly a class act and its nice to see it honored in the new livery.
