It has the silver belly of the previous livery as opposed to the dark blue paint.

Interesting hybrid!

I guess it's time to get my eyes checked.

You can just see where the new titles have been stuck on the dirty fuselage.

Here is another picture of N831MH with the hybrid scheme. The registration number was listed incorrectly when posted. If you look close you will see that it's ship 1807.

All the more reason to pump out more hybrids.......John Q Public would never notice.

Probably to get rid of the wavy gravy livery that much faster. Takes a lot less time to paint only the tail, titles, and engine than it does to paint an entire airplane.

They'll probably stay this way until they're due for a full repaint.



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

And here I was hoping that it was wearing a Red Tail or sporting the NWA silver instead of the white fuselage.

The hybrid colors look fine and are a good way to get aircraft into the new brand quickly, but I question why they did it to N831MH. As far as I can tell, N831MH has never received a full repaint since it was delivered in 2000, so it would almost certainly be due for one by now. It definitely needed work done, as the red on the engines and logo had gone completely pink. However, if they are taking the time to do the partial repaint, they might as well slap a new coat of white paint on the body and paint the blue belly to complete the job.

the logo is what DL wants to show to the public. but it's an interesting hybrid look. i wonder if they will do that to the unpainted NW birds.

The DC-9-30/40s are scheduled to be retired on Labor Day weekend, and the 752 5500-series birds are quickly being repainted into DL "Onward & Upward" colors, along with getting (much-needed) cabin refurbishments.

Those two mainline types, plus some 9E CR2s that are being repainted as I speak, are the only DL birds with NW colors.



I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.

XJ still has CRJ-200s in the silver scheme as well.

I actually like the silver belly more than the blue one, but that's just me.

But if you were a big enough widgethead, you'd know that the NxxxMH registration is a 764

So far they are only getting painted. I work flights operated by 5500 series aircraft at least twice a day and on the planes that have been repainted the interiors are unchanged with the old cloth seat covers and dingy wall panels.

None of the -400s have been stored in the desert, have they? I wondered if they just brought this out for the summer season? What's the ship # for the Skyteam livery?

Saw this on 7/8 when leaving for ATH on DL. Surprised to have seen a hybrid, and was gonna post about it. Seems like went in for an interior refit for lie-flats and they wanted to slap on the new logo....

Now that would be a great looking aircraft!
I love the NWA silver, I wish someone would do something like that. We sure could use that at United, anything would be better than what we are about to have. I think we might see AA use something like that with the 787 though.

Nope. Only planes that have been parked are the 757, 744, 763(both As and ERs), and 333s.

The 400s stay fairly used all year round. During the low TATL season DL sends them on ATL-South America.



yep.

Is the tail painted, or is it a decal? I ask because Air Canada quickly moved their fleet to a hybrid look by doing this.
