Embraer E-175s are just around the corner in the new paint scheme.They will have the American Eagle banner on them.It would be nice to see one in the classic red white and blue scheme.

Fleet # 3DT is registered N987AN; N984AN was the former registration for a 767-300 when it has with Avianca, now registered HS-BIG.

These two were delivered in the former paint scheme, with fleet #'s 3KF & 3KG repsectively; did you mean N922NN & N923NN?

If they don't unveil a retro livery in the future, no. I doubt that will happen because regional airlines don't do that, only the majors do.

It seem that at this pace by the end of the year AA might have over half of the fleet painted. The new paint job is starting to grow on me.

Half the fleet is exaggerated. By the end of next year, yes, half the fleet should be repainted. End of this year is too early to see half the fleet repainted. We will definitely see at least a quarter of the fleet repainted, though, maybe a third at the most. The fleet is huge.
I remember when United unveiled its then new battle ship gray livery 20 years ago, it took them 5 years to repaint their whole fleet.

On 4/26 AAL9737 flew into DFW, I am not certain if this was N924NN being delivered.

Interesting side note, Brandon Farris of Airline Reporter tweeted that he has confirmed with an AA rep at Boeing that they will indeed be painting some of the MD-80's b/c they will be in the fleet until 2018.

This is exciting news if it is indeed accurate. Hopefully we will see those planes scheduled for painting soon.

Exciting news indeed! I suspect that the new livery will look better on the MD-80s than it does on any of AA's other aircraft.

And the list is growing of course. In the days and weeks ahead, it will be more time consuming to list each aircraft repainted in the new colors. Imagine how big the list will be in six months from now.

The great members of this site managed to keep track of the entire UA/CO + Express fleet repainting and interior mods. I can only hope we can do the same for AA (and later AA+US).

Yes at some point it will be moot, but for now it is still a rarity to see one in the new livery.
