Hi All,

We have another one to add to the list of newly painted ExpressJet RJ's.

The list as it appeared in a previous (now archived) thread:

N14907
N11544
N11547
N14158
N17185
N14186
N14188
N11189
N11191

To this, add:

N14568, pictured today in Cleveland. I happen to like the new colors, my biggest complaint being that the registrations are so hard to read from a distance, painted darkly as they are!

Are Expressjet still maintaining a relationship with CO ?

If so, this bucks the trend of feeders having similar liveries to their parent carriers.

(Apologies if this point or question has been raised previously.)

Take Care.

so are they using all E145XR for their routes or are they throwing in some regualar 145 and 135? I guess I could look it up on the website but I am feeling so lazy...

Last question.. are the newly painted aircraft being painted AFTER the XM radio install or prior to? Meaning, when they are painted in the new livery, are they READY to roll or are they still in que for further upgrades? Are these birds just sitting around until start day or are they flying for a carrier?

Just questions I have.. Mush-Mushi!



Aiming High and going far..

Yes, XJT is still maintaining a relationship with CO, flying little over 200 aircarft as Continental Express.

Only the XRs and LRs will be doing the branded flying. More XRs than LRs though I do believe

The 145XR will be used for most of the branded flying. The 44 newest XR's and the 25 newest LR's were the 69 aircraft released from the CO CPA.

I believe the aircraft are being painted first. They are being painted at CXO and SLW. Then the XM installation is being done in SHV and TYS. I am getting this information only by looking at trips in "open time" for pilots. A few of them have the a/c departing SLW bound for LRD to clear customs, then on to TYS. Sorry I don't have anymore information.

The planes are being painted prior to the XM radio install. As of early last week, only ship 186 had the XM installed.

Chuck-to add to your list
N13161
N16546

and not sure if N13907 has been repainted into full XJET colors just yet. Still seen late last week in the interim colors.

I saw one parked outside the COEx hangar today, I swear it was a -135, though. Unless those colors just make -145s look shorter...

I just saw it, its the same one from yesterday, N14568, not a -135. (I was hoping it was a different one.) As far as I know, we won't be seeing any -135's in these colors.

Thanks for the update, JSD!

Okay, so this should be the current list then:

N14907- interim colors?
N14908- interim colors still?
