Embraer E-175s are just around the corner in the new paint scheme.They will have the American Eagle banner on them.It would be nice to see one in the classic red white and blue scheme.

Fleet # 3DT is registered N987AN; N984AN was the former registration for a 767-300 when it has with Avianca, now registered HS-BIG.

These two were delivered in the former paint scheme, with fleet #'s 3KF & 3KG repsectively; did you mean N922NN & N923NN?

If they don't unveil a retro livery in the future, no. I doubt that will happen because regional airlines don't do that, only the majors do.

It seem that at this pace by the end of the year AA might have over half of the fleet painted. The new paint job is starting to grow on me.

Half the fleet is exaggerated. By the end of next year, yes, half the fleet should be repainted. End of this year is too early to see half the fleet repainted. We will definitely see at least a quarter of the fleet repainted, though, maybe a third at the most. The fleet is huge.
I remember when United unveiled its then new battle ship gray livery 20 years ago, it took them 5 years to repaint their whole fleet.

On 4/25/13 N805NN 3ED returned to DFW from ROW.
On 4/26/13 N369AA 369 came back to DFW from GUS.

On 4/26 AAL9737 flew into DFW, I am not certain if this was N924NN being delivered.

Interesting side note, Brandon Farris of Airline Reporter tweeted that he has confirmed with an AA rep at Boeing that they will indeed be painting some of the MD-80's b/c they will be in the fleet until 2018.

This is exciting news if it is indeed accurate. Hopefully we will see those planes scheduled for painting soon.

N508ae is also painted in the new Eagle scheme it was done between n507 and n511

I haven't seen any embraers go in for paint since 942

Exciting news indeed! I suspect that the new livery will look better on the MD-80s than it does on any of AA's other aircraft.

And the list is growing of course. In the days and weeks ahead, it will be more time consuming to list each aircraft repainted in the new colors. Imagine how big the list will be in six months from now.

The great members of this site managed to keep track of the entire UA/CO + Express fleet repainting and interior mods. I can only hope we can do the same for AA (and later AA+US).

Yes at some point it will be moot, but for now it is still a rarity to see one in the new livery.

Now, what would be interesting as the list starts to get big, is to restrict ourselves to these three types: the MD-80, the 757 and the 767-200. Because I'm sure that if we do, the list will be much smaller and no longer moot.

That makes sense. For the past 10 years or so, AA has been polishing aircraft every two years. If an MD-80 is scheduled for retirement in 2017 or 2018, it will need to be polished once or twice before retirement. So, why not paint those aircraft and be done with polishing in the future?

As I think about it the list will actually trim itself down as time goes on for the following reasons:

1. Only a limited number of CRJs, 767s, and 772s so once you hit a certain number can just track the ones that aren't painted.

2. 77Ws only 20 on order and at some point should arriving painted in new livery. OTOH are they actually putting them in service unpainted at this point or are they being tracked more from a novelty standpoint now?

3. Shouldn't all narrow body Airbus should be delivered in new livery already?

4. At some point the shouldn't the new 737s also be delivered in new livery?

All the Airbus and 787s will be delivered with the new livery for sure, because they cannot be delivered with the old one. Besides, all the new 737s and 77Ws should start being delivered with the new livery.

As we can assume that all the 772s, 738s and CR7s will be painted, and that no 762 will, the aircraft that will be split between old and new liveries will be the 763s, S80s and ERJs only.

Anyway, when US Airways comes on board, we will have to track something like 500 or 600 more aircraft. Crazy.

We really should take a cue from this topic United/Cont. Existing Fleet Upgrade Status 11 (by LipeGIG May 16 2012 in Civil Aviation) which managed to track the entire repainting status of UA and CO + Express. That topic is up to I think it's 12 or 13 separate topic due to length and they have done a great job keeping up with the fleet status. Would be nice if we could all band together and do the same for AA.

It is not an impossibility that one of them gets repainted, even if it stays in the fleet for only one more year before retirement.

That was the case before 9/11. After 9/11, the narrowbodies went to a schedule of buffing every other C-Check in order to save money. Considering how scuffed the areas are around L1 are (and L2 on the 757s), you can tell that they aren't getting buffed/polished as often as they did in the 1990s.

The entry door area's are a problem on all fleets and it doesn't take long for the jetbridge ring to show up even after buffing. The exterior appearance maintenance program hasn't changed despite what you claim. There are some test aircraft out there used to evaluate a clear coating process for both the MD80 and 757 to extend the life of a buffing job as there are efforts under way to extend the LC check interval. I can assure you that unless the aircraft was part of the evaluation they are getting buffed at each LC and or MBV. As I passed by the MD80 LC line yesterday the aircraft in for LC was getting buffed.

I'm only saying what I remember reading in the Wall Street Journal, probably 10 years ago or so, and I think Gerard Arpey mentioned this in the CNBC documentary on AA. He said, words to the effect, that having planes that weren't quite so shiney was more than offset by the cost savings from doubling the interval between buffing.

I will dispute what you say aobut the jet bridge ring on all aircraft. I sat at BOS last Ocober for about 8 hours (I gave up my seat for vouchers on BOS-ORD), and I noticed that every AA aircraft had a ring about L1 (and L2 on the 757s), except for one 737, which was very new, based on the N-number.

In looking at DL, B6, US, and UA planes, except for 1 DL MD-88, all of them looked pretty clean around L1 and L2.

Just a couple of changes to report. On a side note MQ is down to just 11 135's remaining in the fleet and the rest should be retired by the end of the year. Progress is continuing on MSN 5678 aka AA's first A319. AA will take delivery of the first 3 Airbus aircraft in the last two weeks of July!

thanks for the updates. nice to see the progress. I think you have a typo under the 777-200s. You have 7AE listed twice.

Any more updates? I had to dig deep to find the thread again. Hopefully we can keep it going, as I'm keen on keeping up with the progress. Many rumors are swirling that painting has stopped, but when you see on here a/c are actively being painted, it's easy to debunk those rumors. Thanks for the updates!

Update 5/17 Currently 41 aircraft already painted in the new livery. ERJ painting has slowed to a crawl and there are currently none in paint. Two new 737's were just delivered N925NN and 926NN.

Well after seeing that list, I cant exactly say it is being done at light speed either. It seems to have slowed down considerably! Or is it me? Just one CR7 and one 777 are added from the previous list. The two 737's are new deliveries so we know those will all be coming wearing the new scheme.

Does anyone know what the plans are for the current specialty planes that AA has? Will they keep them? Also does anyone know when any of the One World planes are due for a repaint?

Have you heard any information about a slow down in painting? Among the rumors, one is that Parker and Co. have asked AA to slow down painting, and/or stop painting. Considering aircraft are being painted as we speak, I'm not sure of the validity of those rumors, so any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the update. I landed at ORD last night and there were four CR7s, one ERJ and two 737s in the new scheme. It was wild seeing so many of the new tails parked around concourses G and H.

I agree it seems like painting has slowed down a bit since March/April, but AA is also running a fuller summer schedule now and it may be more challenging to take ships out of service as frequently.

I don't think that the painting has slowed at all. Aircraft are only being painted in 3 locations. I think they have kicked out about as many as they can since the rebranding was only 4 months ago. As far as the ERJ's, AA is in the process of returning the 135's to the lessor and so there are not a lot of extra ERJ's to put some out of service just for paint. Just my thought on that.

Any idea on how long it takes to paint each aircraft?

777's and 767 's seem to take about 2 weeks, not sure how long the for the 737's.

Also, are there any new deliveries of the 777-300 or 777-200 coming up soon?

You mean new deliveries fresh out of the factory? Because I don't think American still has 772s on order.

The explanation could be as simple as the need for more planes in service as the busy summer travel season begins. I recall similar things happening with other large fleet repaintings, such a United.
