I saw this as well. I really wonder what they are going to announce? My guess would be the same as yours, firming of the 787-9 order, might also be firming the 100 737MAX order as well? New livery maybe? Make your guesses

Perhaps all of the above??? I couldn't help but notice in AA's video about the wide body refresh all the planes were silver... Without an AA livery. We pretty much know a new livery is coming based on past comments by management, but perhaps tomorrow we'll get to see it, on a 789 and 738MAX as they announce the firming of the orders. Interesting!

Is that right? I'd hate to see that, unless they are going back to the old 727 orange livery. I think AA's (and AS's for that matter) livery is classic and should not be changed. Doesn't AA have better things to do while in bankruptcy?
What I do hope the most about that is, whatever they decide to do, they keep their orders firm for the A319 and A321 aircraft, both OEO and NEO. I'm really looking forward to see those and I am convinced they will start flying them in a year from now. Confirming 787-9 firm order would be nice too.

Yes they do, but don't forget that twenty years ago when Continental was in BK they changed their corporate livery from the meatball on a gold tail to the globe on a blue tail.

It is almost certainly to do with the 787s. Their FB page actually shows a picture of a dreamliner beneath the post and they say "dream" big. Then Boeing retweets the same. Seems almost obvious to me that this about the dream liner. But then, stranger things have happened.
