Good to hear, I'm glad southwest is doing this. In a way, this seems symbolic of southwests continuing role as a leader of this country's airline industry!
Hurry up and paint the rest of those 737's with the new livery! How long do you estimate until the whole fleet (besides the three commemerative 737's) is repainted in the blue livery? At least 2/3 of the SWA flights I see everyday here at AUS seem to still have the old colors.

my understanding was that the planes were to be repainted on an as-needed basis. That is to say that they repaint the planes only in D check, rather than do as Delta did (twice) and paint them even when they don't need fresh paint.
