AA 738 Astro Jet

I was at DFW last night and saw this. I didn't know AA had any 737s in the Retro livery.

Usually the 737 800's are based out of ORD and do not fly to DFW.

However, so much has changed, so we will be seeing them in DFW as the 727's depart the fleet. Yes, one was ordered in the 1964 Astro Jet livery, however believe another is on it's way?

American also has a 757 made up in the pre-1964 scheme. As far as I know of, just the one 737 & the one 757 are painted in the two previous liveries. Regards.

Only one 737 is in modified 1960's livery -- I landed it at LAX a few hours ago. It goes to ORD, SFO, and ORD Thursday. No other aircraft are on order that are not in standard AA livery.
