Are the American Connection planes going to say American Connection or American Eagle when they're repainted?

They are all going to say American Eagle. The American Connection brand is being phased out, and everything will be American Eagle. The airline operating on the American Eagle certificate will likely get renamed in the near future.

It's interesting that it is now 25 years American flies the 763 and none has yet left the fleet. None has ever been written off.

Yeah I just added those fleet types. I would bet 757 and MD80 may see new paint but highly doubt 762 will. As soon as the 321's arrive the 762's will be gone. I don't know what the timeline is for the 321 to arrive though

The last 762 is scheduled to leave by late 2016 so early 2017 the AA767 fleet will consist of 300ERs only, whether or not the AA/US merger happens.

Interesting that in the American Way magazine, they have the aircraft in the new livery, but they are all in bare metal/RJ white on AA.Com. What's even more interesting in that in American Way, the MD-80 is listed as being a McDonnell Douglas aircraft. But, on AA.Com, it's a Boeing aircraft.

I know I will get grilled for this one. Since the beginning I have been a fan of the new livery. Sorry!!!!!!! And I had been waiting for the day I would see a couple of those tails together. Finally, yesterday, including my aircraft, there were 4 of them bunched up and burried between them was one 737 with the old logo..... I must say........... It was a very beautiful site........... The old livery was very good and served the company very well for all those years, but the new livery just makes those planes stand out so nicely. For the record, I can be critical as well....... And if there was anything I would change about the new livery it would be the the winglets....... they could use something on them, as well as I could wish for the body to be a little more silvery.....such as National or Aeroflot.......... But all in all, I really, really like the new livery.

Completely true... the only airline in the world to operate the XR is ExpressJet and they all fly as United Express (for now).....

FUNNY though that AA has a pseudo XR depicted as the "145"... granted they also used the CRJ-200 image as both the CRJ-200 and CRJ-700.... clearly the marketing people didn't actually do tooooooo much research in presentation plus the lack of A319/321 info.

Any idea when the A321s come on stream - the only reference I can find says delivery from November 2013; but nothing about when they become operational.

I only ask as I am planning a couple of business trips at the back end of the year that will involve flying NYC-LAX and would love to get my timing right to sample the 321.

At the moment I dont see any MSN's listed for AA as A321s ( Im using Planespotters.net as my source) but so far there are 15 MSN's listed for the A319 up to MSN 5902. Though there are many missing in between, so hopefully those will be listed soon. As for EIS, it might be between November and December, but I have no info on that at the moment.

I have a feeling we're going to see a whole other page added after the US/AA merger goes through. One page with American mainline aircraft including the new airbus type and another for the aircraft that will be flying under American Eagle name.

Not that I'm aware of - I was hoping there would be a JDM* entry that would show it (like RGEY*PAINT for example)...

I guess you could look up the respective fleets' engineering change orders for paint and see which aircraft are marked as having been accomplished. This wouldn't work on new deliveries, though.

I guess we can add N8001N / 001 (A319) to the list, since it was delivered yesterday. 002 should arrive on Saturday, I'm being told. Looks like 3KU is now in service, too...
B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

[...]

So by that list, we're at 82 aircraft wearing the new livery already, still excluding the first A319s, and additional ERJ175s, 77Ws, and possibly additional 738s as well. If they keep up their average of introducing ~16.5 planes/month with the new livery (new deliveries and repaints), we're looking at around 120 total by the end of Q3.
Doesn't lend itself to doing yet another repaint after merger completion, to be honest. Especially considering that a lot of the unpainted planes by then won't be part of the merged fleet for too long anyway (i.e. wouldn't get a repaint in any case).

Quoting boeing767mech (Reply 128):
We just got a memo saying that 40 of the 757's and some MD-80's will get painted. Starting next year.

I'm surprised that even some of the MD-80s are going to get the new paintjob. Looking forward to seeing them (and the 757s), though.

I'm not. I've been mentioning examples of other airlines repainting aircraft that they would phase out in the near term future. I'll mention them again if you ask.

It doesn't look like any of the 762 will get it, I wouldn't bet on that. Though it is not impossible that one out of the remaining 12 will.

I can imagine that in about 20 years from now when American will be celebrating 100 years of existence, they could repaint an A319/A321 or a 77W in the now old livery. It would be interesting to see an A319 or A321 in the thick red/white/blue cheat line on a silver background with an AA logo on the tail, in 20 years from now when that scheme will long be gone. The now old scheme still seen on many airplanes today (2013) will be considered as retro livery in the 2030s.

If you think about it, the MD-80s will be around until 2017 to 2019. That's 4 to 7 years from now. Considering that the bare metal needs to be polished with some regularity, painting the planes that will stay in the fleet for several more years (presumably the ex-TWA planes built in 1993 through 1999) means not having to polish those planes while undergoing scheduled maintenance.

Is AA moving away from the number-letter-letter fleet numbering system used on the Boeing fleet and some of the MD-80s?

Speaking of 3KU, I had a passenger on Monday who was an aviation enthusiast ask me what the tail number for his aircraft was. I was so proud to tell him he'd be flying on an airplane that just arrived on the property two weeks ago.

No, the A300's were also numbered using only numbers

No unfortunately, just keeping track of the aircaft on the RGOL list.

Quoting EK413 (Reply 73):

Why scrap it? I personally find the new scheme refreshing when you compare it with the old scheme.

Too expensive to redo the combined US/AA fleet

When CO/UA merged the CO livery was adopted as the UA feet was already in the process of a livery change and it'd be more economical to just paint the UA fleet in CO colors than paint the combined fleet in the "rising tulip" livery.

Same thing with US/AA, it'd make far more sense economically for the AA fleet to be painted in US colors...and that's likely going to be the decision once Parker finishes decorating his new office.
