How Many Planes Left In YX Colors?

Mon Mar 26, 2012 12:49 pm

Just saw N171HQ in TPA on Sunday, I haven't seen one in a while. I didn't realize there were any left.
I feel woozy....what did you put in that Pudding Pop?

I think F9/RW was planning on returning a few of the E190s, so perhaps they never bothered repainting the ones that were going to be leaving.
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

There are a few in the hideous Republic scheme ones still flying with the terrible all white fuselage and the boring blue and red tail with the stars - lots of animals that can be put on those tails left.

On a ERJ-145, 170 or 190? If it's a 145, they can use those across the fleet, so don't count on those ever seeing Frontier paint.

The -145s are not branded with the Circle of Stars logo. They usually just have some sort of plain (white) fuselage with a blue tail.

The Circle of Stars livery adorns several E-170 and E-190 aircraft. Why it is on the E-190 is beyond me - no reason to have a spare for multiple codeshare partners.
Please direct your attention to the flight attendants in the cabin...

One spare flies on the US Airways Express routes at times...quite the odd ball.

Never seen the circle stars on E145, just as Safety Demo said its just the boring white with blue generic look no titles.

Yup, now that I think about it, that does make sense.
