How much of the US Airways fleet (including America West) has been painted in the new livery and how much is left to go? Which regional carriers are associated with US/America West and will get the new paint job?

I did a search, but couldn't find anything

When I drive on Airlane Drive around the north runway and get a glimpse of the north side of T4, it appears that about half of the planes are in the new US livery and the rest AW for both mainline and Mesa aircraft. However, this is just a glimpse of one hub airport in the middle of the day. My guess is that the repainted fleet can't be much over 50%, if that.


Don't just stand there, go get some glue!

Actually it's closer to 1/3. About half of the 319s are painted, about 4/10 of the 320s are painted, and none of the 737s or 757s are painted.

When is the 333s getting the new US livery? It´s gonna look great on them like they do on 767.

There are some 757 farmes in the new livery already.

I've seen the A319 in the new livery at MDT (Harrisburg Int'l) several times. We've even had the PSA heritage jet once.

I believe the 757's in the new livery are the used one just obtained for the overseas routes. None of the HP 757's have been painted yet.

The pic up top of the 757 is an old Eastern 757... So they are not just the former ATA jets.

There are a least 4 or 5 US East 752s that are not ETOPs that have the new livery. They were done shortly after the first 762 was done.

About the 752,

I've flown on N608US and 3 others that were in new livery. I have yet to see an US west 757 in new livery.

About the A320 series,

At SAN, I saw an A319, N105AW, painted in the new livery. I've seen everything except the the A321, 733/734, and the A333 pianted in new livery.

Do you mean N805AW? All of our A319s are numbered in the 800s.

I just read in our newsletter that we are ramping up the paint lines to have 5 planes being painted at once. They expect the have the whole ex-HP fleet painted by spring.

As far as the America West side. None of the 757's or 737's have been painted. 319 and 320 have. For HP express, The crj 900 are being painted but the crj 200 and dash 8 have not yet.

For east coast 319, 320, 757, and 767 have started to get painted. Not sure about the express fleet.

All four of the heritage planes have been painted and are flying around.

As of June 16th, 71 mainline aircraft have been painted in the new colors. (this info comes from the employee newsletter.)

The only express fleet that is almost all in the new colors in Air Wisconsin's CRJ's mainly b/c they joined the fleet after the merger and were repainted from united to the new usairways colors at that time.
