I personally think we will see enlarged "AA" titles on the tail as is the new trend with airlines nowadays.

Just one comment to the design in reply 194, I think that the eagle logo should not be redesigned and be kept as it is now. Other than that, the proposed livery looks very good.

The ones whose link is posted in reply 196 are nice also.

Thanks 777way .

Can someone make something with more red? There is way too much blue in the sky, AA needs some red to stand out, and they could do it well

Quoting 777way (Reply 196):

Given that all we know so far is that it has a QF style tale, I think that a giant eagle like that is very likely. Since it is a white tail, I would guess that it is going to be in Eagle red and white. All blue would just be too boring for words!

Maybe even three.
The current (soon to be old) livery has been carried for four decades. No other airline has kept a same livery for 40 years or more, but I'm not positive about that so if you think of one let me know.

Air France has been carrying its classic bar code livery for three decades, until they modified it slightly at the end of the 2000s.

Some airlines, like Delta, change their liveries sometimes after not even 10 years, but others keep the same one for over 30 years.

Technically, the changes made to Pan Am's livery over time were so minor that the company basically never changed the livery. RJ has had the same livery for quite some time, except for the small changes made in 2008. Lots of airlines that have good liveries would prefer to keep them as opposed to repaining an entire fleet and having half the fleet in one livery and half in another. Delta was a mess when they first introduced the current livery.

It's simple... that basic coat of grey is the actual silver.

They'll just add new American titles.

BIG and nice AA on the whole new tail and thin red-white-blue lines.

THAT'S ALL.

I keep checking this thread every day to see how AA will butcher their livery. I definitely think its time for a change but after all the recent liveries from JAL to Finnair and the ridiculous United/Continental merger scheme I hold zero hope of American getting it right lol. Hope they do something nice though.

CAAC / CA has been using the blue-double cheatline since the early 1970‘s, although it probably is not as old as AA's current livery, it is pretty old as well.
However, CA's 1970's livery is just a slightly modified version of their livery on the Ilyushins, and that dates back to the late 1950's and early 1960's.

Now that we move closer to the unveiling date. I have been looking at the employee web site and there is a small banner there that keeps popping up, it is part white and part silver grey. It says Uniquely American........ I wonder if they have been giving us signs of whats going to happen already without us knowing. It popped up in two places when I opened the page today. No red or blue. Just white and ............ Or they could just be generalizing everything before the announcement.

To add to that...I was in between flights in ORD yesterday, and on the monitors was a new ad message : "Twice the miles, twice the thank yous"...and it was in white and silvery grey ..no blue or red...with the font we saw on the kiosk pic in an earlier posting. It stood out from the intense block lettering of the other ads.

It actually looked very simple but stylish

Come on AA! We are anxiously waiting!

I think everybody's guesses on here are quite amusing! Talk about trying to interpret a livery from a title-less and logo-less battleship-grey primer coat on an aircraft...it's hard to read too much into this! miaskies photo is interesting but let's be honest, it doesn't give much away!

Let's look at the facts, AA is in a dire financial state but IS in need of an overhauled image. And yet they are very attached to their rich history and legacy. So, in my opinion, a new livery change will be fresh but will have updated familiar elements, perhaps including variations on the logo and font of the titles. And I really doubt the final color of the fuselage will be this dark gray although a small splash of color could go a long way to changing the initial perception (the red, white and blue cheatline is probably history). All of the high-color examples people on here are proposing are just not going to happen - an all-blue tail with nice AA logo, sure it looks lovely, but I really doubt AA will making such a radical change.

Time will tell. But don't set expectations for the moon.

battleship-grey primer coat

This is definitely not a primer coat. If we take a look at the excellent photo that Sabian 404 provided, we can see that the fuselage is a very light grey, with very dark grey used around the doors:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/sabian4...8094996835/sizes/h/in/photostream/

My 2 cents says that you will see a larger eagle on the tail. My hope is that a full eagle is used on the tail if that happens, and not one that uses "negative space" (too big for the tail). As far as hints to retro, it would be cool to see the heritage eagle used.

Sad to see the cheatlines go, as this is one of the few carriers that can truly claim a "heritage" colourscheme with it's long-running current colours.

It's going to become standard on every AA aircraft (with the corresponding code) in the coming years. Has nothing to do specifically with the 773 or the new livery.

Fingers crossed I'm hoping for modern retro   Is that even possible, modern retro?

How do you know this one is for American? Other airlines also have 77Ws on order: Emirates, Cathay...
Did you talk to a Boeing employee? That's the only way I can think of you would be sure it is for American.

Anyway, it must be an outstanding airplane. I'm looking forward to see it in the new livery soon to be unveiled.

'7LB' is an internal nose # for AA's second 77W. Since that's already painted on the nose gear, it's a pretty good indication that bird is going to AA. For the record, the first 77W's nose # is 7LA. At any rate, the first 77W is registered N717AN, while the second is N718AN.

It's not chrome, it's just bare metal. The answer is simple - the second one has yet to be painted. However, we can be sure it will be painted the same as the first because the rudder is already the same colour as the first.

I really like the new kiosk design. Saw a whole slew of the kiosks with the new interface and it was much more pleasing to the eye..more 'graceful'.

The old interface with the loud blocks of red and blue with the bold fonts was like the kiosk was yelling at you.

RE: New AA Color Scheme Confirmed...painted - Part 2

Quoting YYZBound (Reply 245):
The old interface with the loud blocks of red and blue with the bold fonts was like the kiosk was yelling at you.

Very true. AA's entire marketing thrust for the last 3-4 years has been built around yelling at customers. KICK ALL THE WAY BACK, say the ads with pictures of lie-flat business seats. MIAMI NONSTOP, scream the posters hanging from the concourse ceiling. HIT THE SLOPES FOR LESS, demands AA.com today. Even the gate podium monitors are shouting HELP US SUPPORT SANDY RELIEF EFFORTS. I'm being a bit glib, sure, but everything about the all-caps helvetica ads of the last few years has been a real turn-off, at least to me.

I used one of the new kiosks yesterday and it was crisp, clean and really nice. Even better, the functionality of the kiosk seems to have sped up. If the kiosks are indicative of some of the brand changes still to come, I'm looking forward to seeing them.
