Great Photo, although for some weird reason the new livery reminds me of TWAs livery. ??

Relatively attractive change to the new livery. Nothing too dramatic... as to be expected.

For a white-based scheme, I think this looks very nice. US Airways did a great job. Between this scheme and the coming retro schemes, US Airways has instantly become the best airline to shoot photos of among the majors.

The colors are vivacious and continue to represent the image of US air. The look is comfortable and in a way futuristic

The new look is OK. Not great. It is fresh looking, I was hoping for some pizazz. It would be cool if they would
put state flags of the states served on the tail of the aircrafts.

I used to work for long defunct Presidential Airways (XV) here in the eastern U.S back in the late 80's. We flew 737-200's, BAe-146-200's and Jetstream 31/32's. If one takes a look back at our old livery (seen in several photos here on Airliners.net) one may notice some very interesting similarities..albeit with a modern flair applied by USAirways. Kind of looks like someone looked back-to look forward! All of our aircraft were named after former U.S. presidents.

What makes this shot great isn't the lighting, it isn't the clutter on the ramp, but rather it's because the photographer was in the right place at the right time to get the best picture of a new livery for an airline that may have big things in store for it as a low cost carrier.

Nice pic. I really like the sunset color on the plane. USAirways did a nice job with these new colors. I also hear USAir will fly plane with the liveries of the airlines they merged with, such as PSA and Piedmont.

Very good photo but rear underbelly form blends into other aircraft in background. Livery is generally disappointing. Is that an opposing-direction USA flag in front of the N No?

Fantastic New Livery from US Airways. Can't wait to see it on the A330 into MAN. Did the MAN - PHL route in 2002. Go US!!

Will take a while to get used to! Looks to much like leisure Air and the old blue belly Presidential Airways 737 classics (N197aw, N198AW, N199AW) that America West operated for a time. Should have used the America West scheme and adopted the US Air colors!! The Airbus A320 PSA retro paint scheme will look awesome!! Can't wait for that one!!!

Nice to see that the dark US colors are going away, our planes are hard enough to keep cool in PHX / LAS summer sun the way it is. I don't care what it looks like as long as my pay check clears the bank!

Many comments on this one so I didn't read but a few. I agree, the former paint scheme of navy was sharp. I think this one is just as pretty. More importantly though. I think they realized that a dark paint scheme in PHX would not work very well. With the summer heat at 40'C, you need as light a scheme as possible.

What were the marketing folks drinking the day they thought this one up?Striking resemblence to USA 3000. Sorry, but I think some of us were expecting something more stylish. Anyone remember presidential airways circa 1986????

Well, the fact of the matter is however plain the new paint is, the dark blue paint will heat the plane up too much in PHX and the western routes(as stated above). Cant wait for the Piedmont A320!!! Now that will look great!! Great photo, kudos to the photographer.

It does look kinda boring. and the "US AIRWAYS" tiltles are hard to see from afar. so if u dont know this logo, u dont know what airplane this is! Why didn't the make a herritage "US AIR" color? The red stripe and bare metal with blue, Love that one.
