I don't think Continental will have any brand changes like that anytime soon. The livery we have is still nice

Don't forget airTran and Midwest and even Southwest to a lesser extent.

Next one.... I'm gonna have to go with AA, just because: who else is there? B6 and F9 both have unique liveries that shouldn't ever change.

Quoting N908AW (Reply 3):

Canyon Blue is only like 3 years old at the most (AFAIK) that is brand new in airline terms.
Golf Foxtrot you are cleared for departure

It's nice, but it could use a modernization.

No way in h*ll -- AA's livery is timeless, classic, and cheap to maintain. AA is in the business of reducing expenditures and getting into the black right now, not wasting more cash on repainting 700+ airplanes with a new paintscheme.

What year did NK change theirs?
I agree with Commavia, it would cost many millions to paint a fleet that large.

Ok, you got me there, but I think it's more likely they will than B6 or F9.

With oil approaching $65 a barrel and likely to exceed that, I think airlines have a little more on their minds than colours. If anything, we're likely to see some colours disappearing.

An article in the WSJ speaks of severe losses for airlines if oil does in fact reach $65, with airlines like NW and DL likely to see losses of $750m and $1623m respectively. That kind of squeezes the budget for projects like new colour schemes ...

I don't, and by the way, I think that the chance of B6 or F9 introducing a new livery is 0%. Thus, I think the chance of AA changing their livery is sub-zero. It is not going to happen. I feel quite confident in saying that the chance of AA changing their livery any time in the near future (or the far not-so-near, for that matter) is less than 0%.

Kaitak do you also have access to the Wall Street Journal Online?

If so maybe you can unlock this mystery and find out if it is something or nothing.


[$$] Northwest Reveals Higher Rate Of Cancellations as Strike Persists
at The Wall Street Journal Online - 34 minutes ago

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This could be interpreted in many ways. On the face of it one could suggest that Northwest has held back the actual amount of cancellations. But who knows. Without access to this report we don't know. Do you have access to clear up this matter? Thanks in advance.

AA will have to paint their 787s. The fuselage is not aluminum.
