Spirit Isn't Going To Be Applying New Color Scheme

Fri Oct 08, 2004 9:06 am

Just take a look at this photo. The only painted parts are the tail and the engines, obviously. They appear to have the 'old,' white and blue digital scheme, rather than the silver and black on the leased machines.

As a side note, why is the build number so low? For example, jetBlue is receiving A320s in the 2200's. Why is this in the 1700's?

Is Spirit turning 25 years old? Is that the reason for the "Silver"?

That kind of looks black and silver to me.

If they don't apply the new scheme it'd be a shame, I find it quite attractive and better than the old one.

I agree the old one is much better.

I saw one A321 today at FLL in the black & silver scheme. Is it already in regular service?

The 1st A321 in the silver and black scheme is more of a commemorative piece than anything else. Spirit will use their "Digital" scheme on all further deliveries, making the 1st A321 just a special variation of their livery.
