Is the American Airlines 757 painted in the Astro jet/Retro Jet still painted like that?

Yeah, I saw it last Saturday in Boston. If you remember what it looked like in the Airways Magazine that features it, it looks very tattered. I think it is good that they will be repainting it into regular colours, and replacing it with a new 737-823.

Funny you should ask!!!!!! I saw it about 5:00 p.m. today at Ft. Lauderdale!!! It was being pushed back to go (and Jet Blue's first A320 was holding waiting for it to pass). Hope this helps.
