Since AA is keeping the TWA DC-9's for the year 2002 and retireing them in 2003, will they get the AA livery? And, if so, will it be bare metal or that horribly ugly white one? A Bare metal AA livery on a D9S would be so cool  Smile

I would guess that they won't bother painting them if they'll be out of the fleet so soon.

I really doubt we will. The DC-9 is 1st on AA's retirement list from TWA and if they are going to be there for such a short period, it isn't really worth the money to strip and repaint them.

yeah youre rite, but, AA will operate flights with them, so they'll at least have the AA logo stickers, but i really hope they repaint them  Smile

An AP article said they would be retired by the end of the year.

Well, those 717's will be painted in AA colors and they look reasonably similiar to the Dc-9 so it should be nice to see.


Go Cubs!
