Well, if it's a Delta jet, it will get repainted everytime they change liveries . . . so about once a month!!!

The recently issued December issue of Airways Magazine has a detailed story on the painting of a brand new 717.
Here is a link to a description of the issue:

I flew DCA to LGA on the last Pan Am Shuttle. Most of their 727s had PeoplExpress registrations. The next morning I flew back on the first Delta Shuttle, on N555PE, which had been a Pan Am Shuttle aircraft, and it was in full Delta Shuttle colors. There was not a sign of a plane in Pan Am colors at the Marine Air Terminal. How did they get them painted so fast and back into service?
