The white fuselage on the former QQ planes will remain white. If they were to sand the paint off, it wouldn't have the same shine on the fuselage that AA's planes normally have. Thats why AA planes are shipped with no paint on. I don't think they are keeping the 90's.

The M90s are going pretty fast, I believe 901 and 902 are gone already. I don't know who's getting them, or if they are going to the desert for storage. The M87s have been slowly going since the merger.

they are ALL already gone. They were returned to their lessors, and this was schedule during the month of March. Different dates for each plane. I don't remember the exact dates, but some were the 16th some were the 31st I believe. BUT they're all gone.

I'm sure that the paint can be removed and the jets can be polished to match AA specs. Most of the great AA DC1030 fleet acquired during the 1980s were from carriers such as Pan Am and Air New Zealand, and I'm sure there are other examples of this in the fleet (727?).
