That looks really cool. The current AA color scheme is a bit bland. Why don't they just put the retro scheme on all planes. That would look great!

I don't like the current paint scheme my self. I would like to see an AA 777 with the Astro scheme along a 727-200

I'm with Ahlfors. It'd take some guts, but the "Astrojet" look is classic.

AA@DFW put it right! No other word for this look than A W E S O M E! Retro look is cool! But this is great!

They should paint all their 738's like that! or do what I have been suggesting, which is to paint half their entire fleet in the retro scheme, and leave the others as is.

While the scheme looks very good, I still prefer the older Astrojet scheme done on the 757-200. Now THAT would look awesome on a 777-200ER!
