RE: New AA Painted Aircraft - Part 2

Sat May 18, 2013 1:47 am

Any idea on how long it takes to paint each aircraft?

777's and 767 's seem to take about 2 weeks, not sure how long the for the 737's.

Also, are there any new deliveries of the 777-300 or 777-200 coming up soon?

You mean new deliveries fresh out of the factory? Because I don't think American still has 772s on order.

a slow down in painting

The explanation could be as simple as the need for more planes in service as the busy summer travel season begins. I recall similar things happening with other large fleet repaintings, such a United.

Well, according to all the conspiracy theorists on this website, Dougy is going to change the livery so it's a moot point.

Although we can't rule it out, I think the overwhelming odds are that the livery will not be changed (at least not significantly). By the time DP's team takes over, close to 100 aircraft will likely already be painted. A livery is usually too subjective of a thing to spend tens of millions on repainting aircraft because some like it and some don't.

The only real reason I could think that a change would be made is if it's deemed important enough by DP to preserve parts of US's heritage in the livery.

7LG (the seventh 77W) should be delivered within the next week or so. AA still has options on a few 772s, but I doubt those will remain. They'll either be converted to additional 77Ws or other future aircraft.
B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Based on looking at the daily RGO, I don't think painting has slowed at all. Seems to be a pretty consistent pace right now. From this point on all new deliveries will be in the new livery.

I was just thinking that this new livery would look pretty cool on a 747. I am way too computer illiterate to use paint shop to make up my own.

Am I correct in assuming that the planes that have been painted are only getting the exterior make-over now? .....no interior work yet, other than moving rows to accommodate MCE? My understanding from previous in-house announcements is that refitting the 772 & 763 cabins for full-flat Business (and removal of 772 First) isn't planned to begin earlier than this autumn.

As to the painting schedule, I would expect that paint-only work would indeed slow down for summer peak fleet scheduling, with the only new paint being associated with heavy checks, when they'd be subject to exterior work anyway.

All but 14 or so 737s have MCE now, all 767-300s have MCE, all 777-300, all but 3 or 4 Super 80s have MCE, all 757s have MCE.... None of the 762s have it or will get it. None of the 777-200s do yet but will likely be converted when the First Class is removed.

Another 777-200 repainted and sent back to DFW today. This should be the 6th 777-200 in the new livery.

I lost track of the later 737s but the first 3 (in shop to out of shop) took 16, 10 and 10 days.

N804NN flew into ROW on 4/18 and left on 4/25 so getting quicker now at 8 days.

which aircraft is 7AF, 774AN or 775AN? I believe a new 737 should be arriving from BFI today (in new livery) and another 777-200 should be sent to VCV for painting today as well.

As of now it will be easier to establish the list of MD-80s that are still in service than to establish the list of each aircraft repainted in the new colors. Thanks anyway for keeping us updated.

Personally I think the new logo would look great on both sides of the 737, 757, and 767 winglets. It might take a slight revision for it to fit, but if Parker ends up keeping but tweaking the new look this is one minor change I would really like to see. And with the current US livery's winglet design it would make sense.

Cheers

Well, I was just reading an Airline Report from a guy that went to Seattle to take part in AA's 6th 77W delivery. There was a big party thrown for this specific airplane. And he says on his report he found out during this trip that indeed that S80 and the 757 will both see the new livery........ I am really glad to hear and hope it becomes a reality.

I disagree. I don't think this livery will last.

Give the New Americans Managment team 6 months in charge and we will see.

Logo is great tail is awful.

I would love to see the new livery stay. I don't think that AA would have put the money into a new livery and announce it so close to the merger announcement. I believe that US had a say in the new livery, knowing how long it takes to put a corporate merger together there was no way that US could not have something to do with the new livery.

Lackluster, bland fuselage with awful looking tail.

Doesn't "bland fuselage" pretty much describe most aircraft today, especially if they are in full Euro White? The fact that AA has silver fuselages makes them stand out from UA, B6, VX, DL, and US, as well as the likes of JL, BA, AF, and LH. About the only intetesting fuselages are AA, WN, KL, and AC, since they aren't white or white with a secondary color on the lower fuselage.

Thanks for all the updates !

Would it be possible to add totals next to each aircraft type such as below?

(Aircraft that are painted or in process of being painted / total # of aircraft in fleet)

77W (7 / 7)
772 (10 / 47)
763 (9 / 58)
738 (22 / 210)
ERJs - too difficult to track totals ???
CR7 (10 / 47)

Obviously for the 77W and in the future the 787, these numbers will always be equal to each other.

cant wait to see an M80 in the new colors. When will they start repainting the CRJ-200s? Also, when (if) the merger is closed in Aug, does anyone know how fast US's planes will start getting the new look? Will they be getting AA decals in the meantime?

Good question. Repainting will probably start right away, as soon as it's all final and closed. Titles and logos are another issue. When the TWA acquisition closed but flights were still operated and marketed separately by TW, the planes, even when repainted in AA stripes still said "TWA" and "TransWorld", but carried an additional sticker "An AmericanAirlines Company". IIRC, at some point they did start updating to "American" titles when marketing changed to all AA and TW was retired, but with the additional sticker "Operated by TW LLC" or something like that until the final cut-over to the single certifcate. The AirCal fleet name decals were replaced very quickly with "American" titles (as in 2-3 days), but no additional stickers. I would think the US fleet may keep their "US Airways" titles at least until closer to merging under the AA operating certificate, however the repainting could start right away. Possible would be putting "American" titles on them, like with AirCal, but with an additional sticker of "Operated by US Airways" until the certificate cut-over. I don't think "an AmericanAirlines Company" would apply in this merger.
Worked for WestAir, Apollo Airways, Desert Pacific, Western, AirCal and American Airlines (Retired). Flight Memory: 181 airports, 92 airlines, 78 a/c types, 403 routes, 58 countries (by air), 6 continents. 1,119,414 passenger miles.

Quoting American 767 (Reply 7):
Half the fleet is exaggerated. By the end of next year, yes, half the fleet should be repainted. End of this year is too early to see half the fleet repainted. We will definitely see at least a quarter of the fleet repainted, though, maybe a third at the most. The fleet is huge.
I remember when United unveiled its then new battle ship gray livery 20 years ago, it took them 5 years to repaint their whole fleet.

Well considering that after the merger closes they will want to get US planes painted quickly, it is reasonable to assume that over half could be done by the end of the year, if you take into account the US planes as well, the new deliveries, and the retirements.
