I have been asking myself the same question for nearly 3 years now since USAir became USAirways. US has some 34 MD-80's in service. In that time, I can't fathom NONE of them not having gone through C and D checks, which is when a/c usually get (re)painted. Since US has all those A319's and A320's coming in, ostensibly to replace the -80's, and the fact that NONE of the -80's have been repainted leads me to believe that none of them will. After all, why spend the extra money on that more lavish paint job for an a/c that is slated for removal?
