I sure hope it's just the livery, much as I'll miss the classic look. After the 787 brouhaha, I could use some good aviation news this week.

Alright DFW spotters, who's going to go out and get photos of her as she lands?!?!

  
That 738 has been at VCV for nearly two weeks, so do we think 7LB will really get it's final touches in just one day? We know 7LC is sitting at PAE, in the basic gray/white paint job. Could it be that 7LD (N720AN) is ready and being painted at PAE as we speak? A long shot, I know -- just a thought.

It certainly seems more likely that the 738 may be the star of the show.... I can't see a major livery job done in one day on the 773 at VCV. I've not seen any mention of the 4th 773 before.

I'm sure there will be a whole bunch of spotters out at DFW in an hours or so when the 738 lands. Do a.nutters have night vision equipment?

How long would it take to apply decals though? The 737 probably had to be painted and perhaps was getting something else done.

Well we should know soon enough.

Seems strange they would do the livery on a Friday, which is a day on which news that you normally want buried over the weekend is announced.

That was my first thought as well. Not exactly an expression of confidence in what they're selling.

Flight aware has the 738 delayed. And the 773 arrived already. And I'm aware of the funkiness of flight aware but it appears to have taken a route south over Mexico then north into VCV.. Hmmm, the waypoints are listed but I didn't check them. Is that normal?

C'mon guys, this is fun :-P

I have a feeling a lot of people are going to be disappointed with the new livery. Tomorrow's announcement will probably be be that of a rebrand/ revitalisation. "The past is behind us, here is to the future" type event.

Another article with pics. New 738 compared to older 738 without full paint job. Winglets are different.
