Are lots of American airlines planes flying into STL yet? If not when are they going to start integrating the already painted AA aircraft into STL. Also when will they begin to repaint the TWA colorscheme planes?

Your hopes are premature. The experts of this forum say that TWA will continue to operate as a separate entity within American's operations for perhaps another year. A successful integration of the two companies' operations must be a gradual one. I suspect that American will start receiving 717s in AA colors before it starts repainting the TWA fleet. However, I am not an expert, and perhaps I will be proven wrong.

I know this is wishful thinking, but I wish AA would take the opportunity to update their own paint scheme. I love TWA's current livery. I think it is gorgeous, it looks especially nice on the 767s, and I liked it on the Tristars. I bet it would be really nice on a 777. As much as I understand why they go with polished aluminum, and what their logic is, I do wish they would do something besides three plain stripes, and bland wording. I actually kinda like the aluminum skin though. Just my 2 cents.
