Hello All,

I may be in the minority, but I really like American's new look and I'm excited to see it in person. With the website, smart phone apps and the corporate headquarters signage already updated, it's only a matter of time before the new brand rollsout system-wide. Let's use this thread to report the changes as they occur in the airports, aircraft, etc. Pictures would be appreciated!

Thanks,

TWA1985

I would assume within the next few weeks at the hub airports, and at other larger destinations within the month. IIRC DL didn't take long at all to change signing at the hubs.

Years -

From company Q & A.

When will this start showing up at airports?

We will start with our hub airports in North America. New York JFK, Chicago, L.A., Dallas/Fort Worth and Miami. We’ll get those rolled out first, and then we will focus on other airports we serve around the country and around the world. But it will be a matter of years until fully complete.

For those in D/FW, you may we aware that there’s a full renovation of Terminal A ongoing which is being done with our new branding in mind. So you’ll see all the new signage, all the new branding at Terminal A during the first part of February. That’s going to be very exciting for us.

That's what I want to know.

As for branding in airports, Only the slideshow on the gate monitors show the new branding, but then again, the new branding has only been around for two days.

Someone in one of the other threads said they were shooting for half of the fleet by the end of 2014, but I don't know if that was including new deliveries or not.

Here is a schedule AA has posted in it's internal event calendar. It says "New American Airlines Livery Tour". I don't know if this includes actually having a painted airplane there (probably the 738 from the debut) or if it just a multi-media show. Probably not open to the public, but might work for spotting. Except as noted, the locations are on the gate.

Anyway, here you go:
Tue 22 Jan Tulsa (Engineering, so that maybe at the hangar, not the terminal)
Wed 23 Jan Miami Concourse D
Thu 24 Jan Miami Concourse D
Fri 25 Jan JFK Terminal 8
Sat 26 Jan LGA
Sun 27 Jan DFW Concourse C
Mon 28 Jan DFW Concourse C
Tue 29 Jan ORD Concourse K
Wed 30 Jan ORD Concourse K
Thu 31 Jan LAX (Superbay)

After that, the 773 goes on-line. 2 are at VCV now.

Interestingly enough, FWA got a new Eagle ticket counter backdrop in the (now) previous "silver waves" design two days before AA filed for Chapter 11.

It will be interesting to see how fast it's replaced, but my hopes aren't up. At last check, the UA backdrop at FWA is still a tulip. DL, however, did rebrand FWA fast.

You are absolutely obsessed with FWA man. Gotta hand it to you, definitely the most adamant FWA supporter a.net has!

AA/Eagle has opened a bunch of stations during Ch11, and the ones that I'm familiar with (GCK, DRO) have a really crummy, thin vinyl ticket counter sign and gate sticker. Its like thin, cheap wall paper. MHK got it's signage pre-bankruptcy, and its a 3-D metal sign.

My hunch was that the vinyl signs were in interim solution (not just AA chastising it's small markets) until the new branding roll out. I'm sure there's a rollout plan for small markets like MHK, FWA, and the small markets AA/Eagle has opened in BK - I'm sure some of the stuff should be seen this year.

Sounds a lot like FWA's: a thin metallic-look decal attached to the wall. It replaced a plastic backdrop that Eagle had used for eons.

I'm sure that it's not a matter of if but when FWA gets the new branding. FWA does really well for Eagle, with 3-4 daily flights to ORD and 2 to DFW, and Eagle's market share at FWA last year went from 24% to 27%.

I'm just passionate about my hometown airport. Unfortunately, there are MANY here in Fort Wayne that think otherwise.

This thread has absolutely nothing to do with the above comment. Every airline, including Delta, has some bad apples. I sure wish that this site---for airplane enthusiasts---could remain on that subject instead of inserting unnecessary comments.

I thought the same way about pre-merger Continental. Rude, terrible Customer Service and overall a bad experience. Though that may have just been because I was going through EWR...   

Anyways... back to the issue. They have said that the hubs will get the updated signage first? Of the hubs is it safe to assume that DFW will be the first to completely change over? What about the American Airlines Center in Dallas and the American Airlines Arena in Miami? Wondering when CLL (College Station, TX) will get their updated AA signage. It's only a few days after the revealing and the color scheme is already starting to grow on me. Really looking forward to when American Eagle starts repainting their aircraft into the new scheme then they will actually resemble the mainline scheme unlike the previous Eagle scheme which clashed terribly with the AA mainline colors.

I'm definitely hoping that AA's airport rebranding effort looks more like Delta's and less like United's. The speed with which Delta replaced former NW signage and rolled its out new brand was really impressive. United is still pootling along with piecemeal replacements and disjointed branding at many of its non-hub airports. It's more cost effective to do it that way, but it comes at the expense of a unified brand image.

For what it's worth, much of the signage at AMR headquarters in Fort Worth has already been replaced - a positive sign. The first increment of the renovated Terminal A at DFW will open with the new branding. Since the remainder of Terminals A, B and C at DFW are scheduled to be refreshed under the TRIP program, my guess is that AA will hold off on rebranding those facilities until they close for renovation. ORD, LAX, MIA and JFK will hopefully happen quickly.

AA seems pretty serious about this initiative, so it'll be interesting to see how energetically they go about rolling out the new brand. Fleet repainting is one thing - that takes time, and they've got a lot of turnover scheduled for the fleet in the next few years - but airport facilities can be done either really quickly or very slowly. Hoping they go with the former option.

The United Center was rebranded over the 2011 offseason when the UA merger closed the previous October so my guess is the stadiums will stay as is for the rest of the season and get done over the summer.

Since BHM is in the process of a complete terminal renovation including ticketing and concourses/gate areas, I expect BHM will get the full new AA look much earlier than it would have otherwise.

There's also a classic eagle neon sign at LAX T4. We should be wondering about the fate of that as well.

JFK T8 has a four-logo AA logo retrospective (original eagle, postwar eagle, Astrojet eagle, scissor eagle), and I expect it to be updated by adding the new Flight Symbol and updating the scissor eagle logo from "1968" to "1968-2013".
