I doubt this is connected, but it might be--yesterday at BOS I saw an all-white jet outside what I think was the AA hangar. I can't remember exactly what kind of plane it was but it might have been a 757, with the engines under the wings. Was this an aircraft scheduled to be repainted?

Doug Parker has hardly any thing to do with which planes are painted, that would probalbly fall under the the operations department or maintenance departments. The CEO of any business has very little to do with the day to day operations of the airline. People put way too much weight on what a CEO can do with the running of the airline. That is why you have VP's that oversee the managers that run the airline. The CEO is in charge of the corporate side of the airline and the Board of Directors who make the decisions concerning the financial aspects, the finalizing and approving of major decisions, not whether an aircraft gets painted or not, that really falls under the perview of the managers that are put in place to make those day to day decisions.

There is no repainting schedule for the US fleet, since the merger hasn't been consummated yet. Once it's had its day in the BK court and run by the regulators, and approved by the shareholders ... then you'll see a schedule sometime after that. Think in terms of months from now.

That won't even begin until after the merger is approved and escrow closed. While they have an agreement to merge, they are still fully separate companies. US wouldn't begin painting airplanes only to have to repaint them back if (albeit unlikely) the merge didn't go through.

Pity - I'd really like to see those two, particularly an MD-80, in the new colours. The only glimpse of one so far is in the video AA produced when they introduced the new livery and branding.
Then agaiin - AA do have shedloads of 737 and A32S coming into the fleet over the next few years, so I'd expect them to phase out the MD-80s as these get delivered. If they can avoid the expense, they'll probably try not to repaint any of them before they leave the fleet.

It's just the opposite. The Connection brand is going to disappear, and now all the regional aircraft flying for AA will be branded as "American Eagle" and, in small letters, "Operated by..." (American Eagle Airlines, Chautauqua, Expressjet, Skywest and Republic for the moment). This is why American Eagle (the airline) will have to change its name, because the brand American Eagle belongs to AMR.

Scroll down and you'll see a rendering of what it should look like on a CRJ... Looks pretty good IMO. It may just be my OCD but I'm all for there being uniformity between mainline and regional. Having the Eagle livery be so different from AA mainline for all those years really got to me.

I tend to agree. I think having integration with the primary brand is better, and less likely to cause confusion.

That said, HA's new regional operation looks pretty awesome!

Can't say but they are not in the planning document as of yet. Some of the 757s will be around for awhile, specifically the ERs, so I expect to see some getting the new livery. Same for the MD80, I expect to see some of them painted as well, specifically the exTWA MD83s, they are of the same vintage as the original 737 order back in late 90s.

Yes, not sure who the contractor painting them is though.

Quoting FriendlySkies (Reply 31):
Does this imply that Boeing will not be painting any of the new deliveries themselves? Any reason? Boeing's paint shop is pretty damn good.

7LC/7LD are the only two listed in the planning document so I assume the subsequent deliveries are being painted by Boeing. As I said the 737s will be delivered in the new livery starting mid March, I assume Boeing is painting them but don't know for sure.

"Operated by..." (American Eagle Airlines, Chautauqua, Expressjet, Skywest and Republic for the moment). This is why American Eagle (the airline) will have to change its name, because the brand American Eagle belongs to AMR.

As a side note (and my apologies for veering slightly off-topic), I recall reading one ot those airline fleet books quite a few years ago, and with the exception of Executive Airlines (OW), I could've sworn that American Eagle's original name was Flagship Airlines (after its merger with other smaller Eagle operators (such as Wings West, Corporate Air, and Simmons Airlines - not to be confused with 9E's callsign of Flagship). Is that still the case? Does AMR retain ownership of that name, or has it been sold?

That's disappointing. The 762 is understandable but the large numbers of M80's and 752's would suggest that some will be repainted (hopefullly). I think the new scheme will particularly suit the 752.

AA have 100 in service now, and US 24. Total 124. Presumably the US fleet will be repainted sooner so I hope we see some 752's in the new AA scheme.

Delta now owns the majority of the ex-TW 757s. The rest are at other carriers. AA has (and will continue to have, post-merger) only RR-engined 757s. The TW birds were PW.

The CRJ ferry is delayed until noon Sunday arriving DFW around 1300, if dfw is south flow and with the ukw arrival should be prime target for the shooters on 18r. the pilots will most likely request the 13r arrival to "hide" the plane as long as possible. the e145 is still scheduled tonight but delayed looking like a midnight arrival in DFW

The first CRJ 505AE and E145 928AE painted in the new American Eagle scheme are now delayed until a 1200 departure tomorrow from AMA with a scheduled 1315 Sunday arrival at DFW at which point they'll be tucked away until the scheduled reveal on Monday.

With a 1315 arrival it should be totally visible for anyone who is interested in photographing tomorrow at DFW.

The second CRJ and E145 were ferried to AMA to go into paint Saturday evening.

Don't hold your breath for the MD-80's, 767-200's or 757 getting new paint. There is no plan to paint them. The dock plan shows almost all the 767-300's getting painted by the end of the year. But the dock plan DOES NOT show any 757,767-200 or MD-80's getting painted as of 02/20/2013.

There may be no plan to paint them now but seeing that AA still plans on having the MD80 and 757 in it's fleet thru 2017 I think it's a very safe bet that we'll see these planes painted at some point.

The new livery seems to look better on the smaller regional jet rather than mainline. Perhaps it's a combination of the more proportional size of "American Eagle" vs. "American" along the fuselage, and/or the tail not being as domineering or it being topped by the t-tail. Whatever it is, the new look appears more suitable for this much smaller size. Not great, but more suitable.

And once again I have to say that Eagle aircraft 668 is currently a "Komen" pink striped aircraft which was added to the pink stripe fleet only in the past couple of years. The aircraft was completely painted new and the pink stripe was actually painted on instead of the decal like earlier pink striped aircraft. It looks really great as the paint isn't that old yet. I just wonder if they intend to introduce a new pink striped aircraft on the new livery with this aircraft. To me it doesn't make much sense to paint over an aircraft on which the paint is only a couple of years old if they are just going to paint the new livery on it when there are so many others out there which really could use some new paint.

Below photo shows the obvious similarities between the AA and US schemes, the grey lines and the idea of the stripes on the new AA tail logo also comes from the stripes used on the US aircraft. The new tail colors come from the old AA tail logo and the U.S. flag on the US tail logo now comprises the entire tail of the new AA tail logo. Pretty clever coming to think of it:

DFW and MIA have both been closed as ATR bases, and SJU will close in April and all the ATR will be returned to the lessors.

It is expected that we will see again some turboprops with the American Eagle colors, but operated by a 3rd party regional airline. What is still to be determined is if it will be from SJU only, or also from MIA or other hubs.

Now that I read this, I have read it before yes. Even so, if a third party will fly for AA Eagle, the aircraft will wear the AA colors and this is what I had in mind. Any company flying on behalf of AA Eagle, will most likely have an agreement (such as the Capacity Purchase Agreement AA Eagle has with Republic Airways?) I would assume(?)

So technically we might still see the ATR72 with the new AA Eagle colors, just operated by a third party.

I still say that painting the winglets solely in the same base color as the fuselage is boring. Considering that US has its logo on winglets, DL has winglets the same blue as the tail/underside of the fuselage, and UA has winglets painted blue with a gold stripe, I don't get the solid silver/gray.

I was talking to a friend of mine who is a 737 captain. He's a bit interested in what AA does with the winglets on the 737 MAX, since it's split like the winglets on the MD-11. From a safety perspective, the lower part of the winglet needs to have a contrasting color.

My bet is that there will just be a small strip of red paint along the very bottom of the lower tip (or perhaps a border all the way around like KL does on the MD-11). There are quite a few 737 operators who will probably be faced with similar issues when/if they take MAXs in the future.

That's just the lighting. It's more of a pearlescent gray, though not as easily noticeable as Virgin Atlantic's color scheme. It's definitely NOT gun metal gray, though.

This shows up in one of American Airlines' videos describing the development process for the new brand. In a quick shot, they show a MD-80 at FTW with sections of various gray/silver paint on the sides.

It is still curious why they painted the B757-200 as a prototype only to then to revert it to the now old scheme.

When talking about AA, that means "Dallas (DFW) West Hangar," Just so you know.

I don't get why "DWH" is called "DWH". It's the hangar on the EAST side of DFW. It is mostly commonly called "The East Hangar" or "Hangar 5". Can someone further explain the "DWH" name -- it seems to only have been called this since AFW was shut down.

It stands for "Delta West Hangar." Back when DL had a big presence in DFW, the hangar belonged to them and Delta East Hangar was in ATL.

I've heard it called DWH as long as I've been with AA - so no, it's not just since the closure of AFW.

AA kept the name the same as Delta called it. For AA its an important distiction as it a main base like TUL and not part of the DFW line maintenance operation. Mechanics have to bid as they would another station unlike the other AA hangers on the west side of the airport. Those are part of DFW line and are on a shift bid not station bid.

That was painted on a retired AA 757 at ROW. It was merely a prototype and was probably painted over immediately afterwards. If you go to ROW, you may find an all grey 757 parked there now.

Not necessarily; the corporate logo has changed, true. However, AA as a brand has been established for over forty years. Their website is still aa.com, so I doubt "AA" as a brand will suffer at the hands of the new livery.

I think it can suffer as the "AA" in their marketing is clearly linked to the letters AA on their previous tail logo. Now it is American and not AA. American to me clearly wants to get rid of their old image and start anew. Even if American will keep the "AA" marketing I think it doesn't fit anymore but this is just my opinion.

I wonder if this will be the rotation MQ puts their birds into the paint shop. Since the same aircraft is normally scheduled to fly LAX-ASE-DFW-ASE-LAX, will the newly painted bird fly the DFW-ASE-LAX leg and the a/c that flew LAX-ASE-DFW fly to AMA to receive paint? This is the only CRJ-700 DFW sees after all.

Can it be that the photos you linked are of the aircraft arriving after it was painted in ARA?

EDIT: My apologies I overlooked the part where the other member mentions that the aircraft only had the grey colors. It indeed has the full livery as you said. My bad  Smile

P.S. How did the a.net meet go in MAN? I hope you had a great time.

I think 738 3AB was ferried from ORD to PAE a few nights ago for paint

Actually it's not there for paint but some other work

3AB is at PAE for a Heavy C Check that was outsourced to ATS...one of 4 aircraft nose to tail. They are also doing two additional modification lines there for the NGS AD on the 737. None of the work at PAE is livery work on any of the fleets.

I have confirmed that the first delivery aircraft with the new livery will be 3KE/N919NN scheduled for delivery on 3/15.

Okay, great.

Meanwhile, I see more messages coming from 737's coming out with the new livery. That's good news. When is the next 767 scheduled and the first 757? If memory serves me well the first AA A319 should be delivered in June of this year (Airbus test aircraft), is that still correct? Looking forward to those Airbuses as well.

I would be remiss if I didn't remind everyone that I would not use the list to determine specific nose/tail numbers. It was compiled as a guide to when we should see aircraft painted. The specifc nose numbers for thos slots are always dynamic and can be changed at the last minute depending on the needs of the operation. The important thing to remember is that those are slots.

There has already been deviation to the list. Its easy to update aircraft specific info as it unfolds.

737AA.... 3KE delivers today as AA9701, EIS is target for the 15th

Yes I forgot the dates on the dock plan indicate ETR for DWH not ferry from BFI.

Funny I looked at the routing (RGA) for 3KE early this morning (and just now) and it still has it unassigned BFI but looking at the RGG for BFI I see T9701/3KE/OFF0950/DFW. Not sure why RGA isn't picking it up.

I know it happens with the RGA/RGG for the 77W's as well when they ferry from PAE. I should remember why since I did 737/757/767/777 deliveries at BFI/PAE for years (mostly 737 though), but that was back in the first batch of 737/777 and last 757/767 back in '99-'02, I've forgotten a few things since then.

737AA-

For some reason the delivery flight does not show up on the RGA sometimes. It will spend the next 5 or 6 days at DWH getting "Americanized". Its EIS is scheduled for around the 15th with a flight to SFO. Once in SFO the "Sale-leaseback" transaction will take place, then it will be free to fly about the system.

The other day its sister ship 3KD went through the sale-leaseback at SFO, and it did not go as quick as hoped and created a fairly long delay.

Due to liability issues the aircraft cannot be moved until the transaction is complete and the new registration is affixed to the aircraft.

Talked to my contact at BFI today and I got this wrong. The first aircraft to be delivered in the new livery is going to be 3KH/N922NN. It is scheduled to ferry from BFI to DWH 4/5 (if everything goes right). So with that said, 3KF and 3KG will still be in legacy scheme when delivered. Sorry for the confusion.

This is a different process that when I was doing it on the original 75 aircraft. We were purchasing them outright back then so after we signed the papers at BFI we ferried to TUL for EIS BOW and once we had the temp registration it was released.

Yep and then restricted to domestic only until the perm registration was received back from FAA. I guess something has changed with this also since 3KD is RGA has it going to MBJ today.

First one is scheduled out of VCV on 4/8. In Aug there should be 10 sporting the new livery so chances are better then.

Between trips there was a chance to get a closer look at her and the new colors are growing on me. Meanwhile, 77W N718AN was moved to D25 for the EGLL flight and it was interesting to see both aircraft visible along the flight line more-or-less near one another when we taxied out.

3DR/N982AN ferried to ROW from DFW last night trading with 3DP.

Both of these aircraft were scheduled to be painted at GUS but ended up going to ROW for some reason. Not sure what the deal is there.

3KF/N920NN should be delivered in the next couple of days in the new livery and then ferried to DFW/DWH for post delivery work prior to revenue service.

N668AE

It's actually N668HH on the aircraft. The Former Pink Ribbon aircraft gets repainted.

Was on a CRJ 700 out of FAT to LAX yesterday - very surprised to see the new paint on anything out of FAT. Didn't catch the registration number. First of the new paint I've seen in the West - period.

Thank you for putting a summary together though, much easier to follow this way.

Looks like I didn't proof my work here. Indeed 668 is 668HH I forgot that one is one of the very few non standard AE registrations.

7LD is indeed being painted at VCV, I dont know where I got ROW.

Thank you it took me a little bit to compile the list. Hope to keep track of the painting and deliveries and update it as we go forward.

N920NN / 3KF delivered to DFW today and is NOT in the new paint. I believe Reply 147 says that 3KH will be the first 738 to deliver in the new colors in early April.

Ok thanks. On the next update we can remove that one from the list. Doesn't it seem crazy that this livery was introduced two months ago and yet the new 737's are still being delivered in the old livery? Why does it take so long to begin painting them in the new scheme?
