PSA Retro taken out of service?

Mon Oct 30, 2017 2:12 pm

I am constantly aware of where the locations of most of the retro aircraft flying within the United States. Recently (the past three weeks or so) American Airlines PSA retro A319 aircraft, N742PS, has not taken any flight and doesn't have any planned for the near future.

Has this plane been taken out of service forever or is there another aircraft coming in with that livery?

I can’t answer your question. While I enjoy retro liveries like most folks do...I especially like the AA Astrojet 737 redux...the Retro PSA A319 always looked awkward to me. Particularly the tail logo which was designed to look good on a 727 tail but on the 319 vert stab looks of odd shape and size.

Perhaps one day we will have the old Air California livery. Not AirCal but the Air California original livery with the sunburst nose design. That would be nice.

Slightly off topic, I thought PMAA wasn’t going to use Aeroman for Airbus heavy MX. is this just because the fleet is still not integrated?

PSA and Piedmont liveries are both LUS metal birds.
