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.

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%.

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".

Please put that on the discussion thread. I have to agree about the tail, but this is about updates and schedule for the new logo and livery introduction.

I wonder how fast their branding will go as compared to UA or DL with their mergers and livery updates. Until the CO merger, UA was updating logos at the speed of about one airport per year. The UA/CO merger logo updating is moving much faster. I imagine that AA will update their livery fairly quickly, partially due to all the the new planes coming in. But as for logo, I don't think it will be super fast. Add in the merger question, and this gets quite interesting.

I got a quick glance at a kiosk yesterday at LGA and it had the new logo on the screen. We all know the new kiosk software was released a month or so ago, but now they've added the new name and logo. Simple, but you can see how it all fits. So all were right to assume when that new software rolled out that it was a glimpse into the new AA.

Also, some gate monitors at LGA were sporting images of the new aircraft livery and logo, but the flight information and standby lists all appeared the same. That should be something fairly easy to roll out once the software is ready to go. Also, airports like RDU will be very easy to update to the new image since all airline branding is done digitally. There are no airline specific backdrops at the gates or ticket counters, only large monitors. I was at RDU yesterday and everything is still the old AA. I imagine it won't be long though.

From what I have heard through the rumor mill is that 3JX will be delivered in the old livery. The aircraft has been complete for a week or two, and incase the rebranding unveil had to be pushed back, and AA still needed to take delivery of this aircraft they wanted it to be in standard colors...

Look at it this way... this is your last opportunity to see a brand new shiney silver bird! They do look fantastic brand new and polished up!

So these are all promotional flights, no scheduled commercial flights. Does anyone know when it will enter commercial service? What about 3JX? It will leave BFI for DFW today as per previous posts, will that aircraft enter commercial service in the new livery before N908NN will? I'm looking forward to the flight schedules of these two aircraft (if anyone can get their hands on it).

3JT is currently touring though the hubs. It will be in MIA on the 23 and 24, JFK on the 25, LGA on the 26, DFW on the 27 and 28, ORD on the 29 and 30 and LAX on the 31.

Both 77W are currrently at VCV getting the new paint. Not sure if 3JX is in the new colors or not. I almost guess no since it was so far along in production but I guess we'll know later today after it ferries from BFI

Actually now that I think of it, there were already images of 3JX already painted in the new paint minus the colors?

My concern of the new tail which takes on an American flag theme is it is more recognizable when compared to to the old "AA" tail design. this potentially puts a bulls eye on a U.S. flagged carrier in that our flag is recognized worldwide.

Keep the new design on the the airframes which fly in North America. Find another tail design for the global flying in those not so friendly countries on the Department of State advisory list.

I'm saying the U.S. flag is more recognizable than the word American. Many people in third world countries don't speak or read English but they do recognize the U.S. flag. I've traveled in Haiti, and other parts of Hispaniola, Africa and southwest Asia where they don't understand or read English but the U.S. flag is recognizable more than the word "AMERICAN"

The hybrid white DHL livery didn't look remotely American, and yet it was shot at by terrorists on the ground who knew exactly what they were firing at.

Personally I'd be more worried about the Air Force thinking I was on a Cubana plane in US airspace.

Well, every airliner from the USA has an American flag plastered on both sides of the plane. I think that might be a giveaway also.

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.

I think I saw passengers being escorted onto the airplane and the ramp at MIA today, but I'm not one hundred percent certain. The snack table and promotional materials were definitely open to the public, however.

Quoting qqflyboy (Reply 38):
Also, some gate monitors at LGA were sporting images of the new aircraft livery and logo, but the flight information and standby lists all appeared the same. That should be something fairly easy to roll out once the software is ready to go. Also, airports like RDU will be very easy to update to the new image since all airline branding is done digitally. There are no airline specific backdrops at the gates or ticket counters, only large monitors. I was at RDU yesterday and everything is still the old AA. I imagine it won't be long though.

And from MIA today, no signs of the new identity other than the software on the self-service machines and the screensavers.

Have to say the new livery looks very sharp in person. The tail, especially, is very intricate and the different hues don't show up as well in photos as they do when you see it on the stand.

You really don't realize how intricate the tail is until you can see it up close. The blue is actually made up of dots as seen here. I took this photo yesterday at LGA

The first 77W is supposed to leave VCV tonight for DFW at 1700 arriving DFW at 2125 as flight 9708. Someone near VCV needs to get there with a camera!

The Delta tail looks better,but I like Americans Titles and logo better if that makes sense.I hated Americans livery when I first saw it,but it looks better now that Ive looked at several different photos.We only get MD80s and ERJs here in HS,so it will probably be a while before I see the real thing.

It will be at the very visible K-19. You should easily see it from L but why not walk over to K and get a good look at it?

It will be there 3:00 – 7:00 p.m. on the 29th, and then 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. leaving (for lunch I guess??) and on display 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. on the 30th. Then it flies to LAX, but only to the maintenance facility. The 31st is also the first day of scheduled 77W ops. I'm trying for the inaugural to GRU!!

I like the livery, but there are two inconsistencies that bother me. First, in some places (like the AA website), the airline is branded as 'American Airlines' with the logo. Yet in other places, like the livery, it just says 'American' with the logo. It should be the same everywhere, the way Delta or British Airways do it.

Second, everywhere I have seen the name American + logo lock-up, 'American' is center-aligned in the middle of the logo. Yet on the livery, the name American is flush at the bottom with the logo. A small detail, I know, but something I feel should be consistent across the board. Again look at Delta... the word Delta is always centered with the widget.

The one glaring problem with the new paint scheme are the winglets. They are simply painted gray like the fuselage. They used to have teh striping and AA.com. UA has blue winglets with a gold stripe. DL has blue winglets. I believe winglets on US has the flag logo, but it's been a while since I've seen a US jet up close. Virgin America has the U.S. flag waving in a breeze.

Couldn't AA have put the logo or a small version of the tail design on the winglet?

Every airline brand has inconsistencies. AA Has always used the "AmericanAirlines" text in print/web advertising, while using the shorthand 'American' on aircraft. Signage and materials not directly controlled by AA often use whichever logo.

Delta's livery is not entirely consistent. On some aircraft, the 'DELTA' titles appear smaller in proportion to the aircraft than they do on other models. The widget on the tail isn't always scaled the same either (the DC-9s have a larger widget compared to the MD-80/MD-90 tails).

United's post-merger livery isn't always consistent, either. On some aircraft (notably the 767 and 777) the UNITED titles are disproportionately huge compared to the narrobody aircraft.

AA's inconsistencies are comparatively minor. We'll see how things look once more aircraft start getting painted.

There are only 2 painted so far, a 738 and a 773. The new 773 delivered today was painted like the first 2. The 2nd 773 should be close to being done with painting and should be ferried back to DFW soon.

That's probably a special time only for customers. The aircraft is going to be at ORD at the times I stated. Perhaps the other times are employee only events

That's a great photo. The new livery is beautiful, it's definitely more lively than the other two. It catches your attention immediately.

Check AA's facebook page. They just released photos of the first 77W in full colors. Looks stunning in my opinion.

AA 737-800 in new colors is parked across the way.


It's absolutely hideous in person. Just dreadful.

I usually like change and new looks. This is terrifying, looks corporate and unclean.

One thing I have noticed is that the livery lives and dies by the weather. On a sunny day, the scheme looks great, especially up close. However and unfortunately, overcast skies give the aircraft a more somber look. IMHO, pearl/metallic white would have been the best base coat. The simple presence of a metallic anything could be considered an ode to the brushed jets of the past, and pearl white would look much better in various lighting conditions.

Thanks N737AA, please keep us informed about the schedule of N908NN. I'm waiting for the aircraft to fly to CUR so I can photograph it. We have two daily flights from MIA to CUR of which one is an overnight flight.

Routings change often and hard to keep up with....its already changed, sticking close to MIA. It will be in DFW tonight from 1830-1915, maybe someone there can catch a glimps of it. It is overnighting in AUS tonight, if anyone from here is from AUS.

Thanks, I thaught it would be doing one of AA's daily MIA-GRU rotations. AA will start with 4 77W's I'm assuming so on which route will the other aircraft be used?

Both 7LA and 7LB are still at VCV with no routing information loaded yet, maybe tomorrow.

For now, they will only be used on DFW-GRU as the route needs 2 aircraft:

AA963 DFW 2035 - GRU 1030
AA962 GRU 0055 - DFW 0720

In March, this route will switch back to a 772, and DFW-LHR and JFK-LHR will start. Next ones will be JFK-GRU (April), LAX-LHR (June) and a second DFW-LHR and JFK-LHR. This will make 12 daily 77W flights, so with only 10 77W aircraft this year, I doubt we will see them in other routes until 2014.

7LB is at DFW and will be on display tomorrow at gate D25. 7LA is still at VCV and should be back to DFW in the next day or so. N914NN is in old colors. Only 7LB and 3JT wear the new colors....7LA also has it, but still at VCV.

Now that the wraps are off the new livery, are the others still going to be ferried to VCV for final painting, or will N719AN and those coming after be finished at DFW or TUL? I'm surprised 719 didn't go directly to VCV if that's where it now has to be ferried.

On display for employees and vendors to walk through, and to get everybody familiar with it. The 773 isn't that much different from the 772, but there are a few differences.

Unless you're a flight attendant or a passenger. The interior of this plane is a drastic step up from the 772, and far more advanced in terms of its cabin systems.

Great, again thanks for the information guys, I really appreciate it. I am hoping for the 77W to be used from their MIA hub as well. I hope there will be some schedule changes

The only one I can confirm is 3JT/N908NN as it is the only one I have seen with my own eyes. 3JX/N913NN overnighted in TUL last night but I missed its departure this morning so didn't get a chance to see what is was wearing.

You may be able to confirm it though as it is currently routed through CUR on 2/02, its a turn though so you will have to be quick.

The 773 will be parked at the terminal so employees can get familiar with things like jetbridge placement and fuel hookup. There are a few cargo handling differences and such. The 772 and 773 are a lot alike in some of the ground handling features, but there are some differences that need to be addressed. I wasn't referring to any of the cabin amenities or walk-up bar, etc. I doubt the fuelers or ramp guys really care about any of that stuff.

I think it's been confirmed N913NN (3JX) is in old colors, as is 3JY. I don't think AA would put a bird with the new scheme out on revenue flights until 3JT's tour was over. Next in line out the shop is 3KA, which I bet will arrive with the new livery.

If you are still set on checking it out though, N913NN is operating AA1303 tomorrow to CUR.
