I hate it. AA should really get a new paint scheme. Their aircrafts look like they were all built in the 60's. BLAH!

I believe AA has said they will not change their paint scheme. They like their traditional silver bird look, and so do I. What I don't know about is AA getting new 717's. What are these for? Someone please explain.

It looks ok. I asked someone about the picture and they said "It looks like they painted a fokker". it really does. they need a new paint scheme. I downloaded a American Airlines DC-10 for fs98 that has this really good paint job on it. It looks better than their regular paint scheme.

As I stated before on another thread, it's looks like a half-assed paint job. Once AA polished up the tail & the nacelles, it's should look a good deal better. And when AA does applied full titles to it, the 717 will look like a shortened MD-80, which is basically what it is in the first place. Don't flame me because I happen to like this aircraft. It's the last jetliner that McDonnell Douglas produced. Now everything is either Airbus or Boeing. Regards.

I think that it would look awesome in a Retro paint scheme.

From what I understand the TWA 717's that are already painted with the white rust "resistant" skin those planes cannot be repainted, the white skin cannot be buffed off. I would imagin those 717 planes not yet painted that are to be delivered to TWA (American) will get the polished finish and not the white skin that TWA ordered.

717 = MD87 -- there's no difference unless you're a very, very good spotter. It's not a new body type, just a new designation.

Was on flight from Sydney to Maroochydore on 717 last month -- stopped in cockpit, told tech crew it was the nicest MD87 I'd ever been on! Noticed the displays were all big and glass however!

Cheers!

David,
