They had a 757 1/2 way painted, and a song plane being stripped this weekend, so 2 more 757s should be done within a week...

No 763's? I'm flying AMS-JFK on December 20 and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can get one with the new c/s, but with the current rate of repainting, I think it's going to be a wavy gravy 763.

Nope, you'll get either the wavy gravy scheme or maybe even the '97 Ron Allen scheme. Delta does have two 767's in the new livery (N125DL and N134DL, maybe N130DL, I can't remember), but both of these are the non-ER 767-300's that are used solely for domestic flights. Currently no 767-300ER is on the repaint schedule, even the 5 -ER's that are in the old-old '97 scheme.
Here are all the 767's that are in '97/Ron Allen colors:
Domestic 767-300's:
N122DL, N130DL (it was scheduled to be repainted in October, it may be in the new livery), and N143DA.
International 767-300ER's:
N1201P, N1604R, N1605, N172DN, N175DN
All other 763ER's are in "wavy gravy."
There are a few more domestic 767's scheduled for repaint this year: N130DL was scheduled in October, I don't know if its in the new colors yet (I can't open the Oct. 07 DL new livery thread); N128DL is scheduled for repaint this month; N138 and N139DL are scheduled for repaint in December.

All of them are in wavy gravy and I'm pretty certain that none are currently on the repaint schedule. The 757's and RJ's seem to be getting the most priority for repaint right now.

I was on a Comair CRJ-900 yesterday from ATL to CVG that was in the new scheme. The registration was N676CA. Judging by the new paint scheme and the super clean inside I think it may have recently been delivered.

I don't have any registrations but there are a fair amount of the RJs operating out of LAX in the new paint scheme. I saw quite a few last night out here and a bunch landing back in late July when I was out here then.

Wow, and I thought that calling it "Citgo" was bad...
You and your inlaws have taken this to an entirely new level.
Although, heck, what else do inlaws ever do???
The new paint is starting to grow on me, even if I do find it a little unimaginative. It's at least clean
I think these colors will look nice on the 777.

Can't wait to see the new paint here in Anchorage. We've only seen one 757 so far with the crooked widget.

As an aside, has anyone else noticed that the widget on the left side of the tail points to Northwest?
I think I smell a merger hint...

I was unable to access the October thread - noted as archived, but I have pulled together this list based on my notes, apologies if a mistake has entered the data. I had not seen new photographs since early October and was waiting for one before I started the new thread.

There are about 28 Song aircraft still in operation, so they won't go away too quickly [see updated comment in next post].

Any additons, sightings or notes (especially from those on the inside) will make us all happy!

All Song 757's will be in new DL colors by the end of the year (2007). Anderson has made this the highest priority for TechOps. They will be outsourcing a few of these paint jobs to a company out in Victorville and one in Mississippi, IIRC.

I think he wanted all AC to say "Delta" on them in one fashion or another (regardless if they are the awful Ron Allen jobs).

So random. Ill be flying on exactly the same day but DUB > ATL.

We get none 767 300ERS here so maybe i may be lucky with a new paint job. But i think it will be a wavey gravey though.....

And on the right side, it points Northeast, just like the compass on NW's birds. This means that not only are they going to merge, but they're also bringing back the Northeast brand!
