Looks great. If only their service onboard were as good as their livery!

I hated the livery before...but, IMO, it looks downright disgusting on a 757

The schedule previously posted for this 757's first flight in new livery is wrong. Flightaware.com is saying it will be doing its first flight at 5:25pm tonight to Jorge Chavez Int'l. A long flight for this bird!

The new AA livery is easily the worst in north america, but somehow the 752 makes it look not as terrible.

until we throw the new WN livery into the mix> Check out that thread.
When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

I still look at that new logo and automatically think "Greyhound"?

Quoting laxboeingman (Reply 2):
I just saw the picture of the 757 in the new paint job and I noticed a difference between its paint and others in the new livery. The rear door is fully painted in the tail portion of the scheme while that is not the case for other e/q types. I guess they are trying to keep the tail portion proportional for all of the e/q types, right?
Quoting qqflyboy (Reply 9):
There are two things at play here when it comes to how much of the aft door is painted. First of all, the paint extends down the fuselage at the same angle as the tail, and the aft door on the 757 is further back, or more of it is directly under the tail. Those two things will affect how much of the door is painted. Some tails may not be swept back as much, and some aft exit doors may not be as far back under the tail as on the 757. When you look at the various pictures, they're all relative.

I had the same exact observation. The vertical stabilizer has a larger angle than other aircraft in the fleet. A friend of mine who has flown 737/757/767 has always said that he was surprised how the rear doors are under the vertical stabilizer.

As I've said elsewhere, the livery has grown on me. Someone has said on A.Net before the unveiling in early 2013 that the new livery was supposed to be retro. I took that has a modern take on the lightning bolt livery used on the AA's prop fleet and the 707s. So, this livery was a disappointment, at first.

But, it looks really good on the 757. Perhaps it's the distance from the billboard titles to the tail stripes that makes the proportions look good.

The livery just works on the 757. It looks made for it.

Love it

Secondly: It would be nice if the winglets had the flagged tail logo on them...

I think it would be awesome if the winglets were painted in the ribbon color and is next to "AMERICAN" on the fuselage.

The final proof that the 757 can make any livery look great.
The most obvious proof for intelligent life in the universe is that they haven't tried to contact us.
