No 757 in the new livery. All 737s plus US airbuses are a priority.

N754AN went to GUS on Nov 15, looks like she's getting repainted.

Time's running out for those who want to take pictures of the AA 777 in bare metal!

I can't find anything indicating any AA 757s at any of the painting locations yet. None at VCV, GUS, AMA, or ROW. I can't wait for it though!

**Unconfirmed** but according to people I have talked to, Doug Parker has ordered an immediate halt to the painting of aircrafts to the "new AA livery", he will introduce a new livery in mid-December scrapping the "redneck" livery.

I honestly don't know what to think of your comments sometimes - LOL. As ridiculous as some of them sound to me I've been surprised more than once by your information. However; I like several others above hope this is just a fool hardy rumor that refuses to die here on a.net and that a rational business sense will prevail over an irrational ego.

There isn't really time, particularly with the holidays coming up, for a consultancy to come up with something completely new in time for a January deployment. After all, the "new American" look took more than a year to develop.

I don't think there's any chance that the new branding is going to be replaced at all. That said, if Parker was dead set on unveiling a different one, there's no reason why US couldn't hire the consultants and say "We want a brand named American to be ready in 2014" as soon as the merger was announced originally, or even earlier.

People the new livery is here. The new American is arriving and it looks great! I flew a new 319 the other day and it was awesome! It would make absolutely no fiscal sense to do yet another rebrand to replace one that isn't a year old. The travelling public is getting used to it and most could care less. I must be missing the public outcry by passengers who refuse to travel on American because they despise their paint. I would almost guarantee that we will see a combined AA/US fleet in this livery.

Maybe he's planning on introducing a new livery as part of the closing celebrations.

That would be beyond ridiculously stupid IMO. They've branded the new look as the "new American". What will the merged entity be? The new American. Replacing a not yet even one year-old rebrand with yet another will only distract all concerned from the hard work at hand.

They could always pull a Delta and call this the "interim" livery!

Exactly. Like I've said many times, majority of the flying public won't even notice the change, so why would Dougie go through all the trouble of designing a new livery, then apply it to the whole fleet when they already have a livery designed and applied to over 150 planes in the fleet. He won't, from a business stand point, it makes more economical sense the continue with the new American.

I am going to update this list a little early this week and we will watch and see if any other aircraft go in for paint after those that are currently being painted are completed. Only one additional aircraft has gone in since the last update late last week and that is a 772. Currently only five aircraft are being painted and that includes a CR7, 738, and (3) 772. If we see additional aircraft go in soon I would say the rumor that Parker ordered an immediate halt to painting would be false. But honestly the lack of additional aircraft going in for paint even has me skeptical.

sorry guys but AA will not stop this branding. What i do see weird is the lack of progress on painting the AE fleet, a AE spokeswomen said back in January or April that we would see 5-8 AE planes painted during the fall/winter season.

So everyone has the numbers.

OO has 10 CRJ-200's dedicated to AA (In AA Paint). OO is also running some generic paint aircraft in the AA system.
OO has 11 CRJ-200's and 4 CRJ-900's dedicated to US (In US Paint).
EV has 11 CRJ-200's dedicated to AA (In AA Paint).

No, both OO and EV are in the white American Eagle livery. EV started painting the week the new livery was announced, it was decided that they were too close to launch that EV didn't have time to spec out and paint the aircraft in the new livery.

It is becoming very difficult to know exactly how the new aircraft are replacing the older ones. Until this year it was quite easy, and for every 3 737 deliveries, 2 S80 were retired. However, this year AA is taking delivery of 31 738s + 20 32s + the 77Ws, so it's not only a 737 vs. S80 analysis, but you also have to take into account the 752s and 762s. Anyway, so far in 2013 21 S80s have been retired IIRC. The key point here is that AA has a huge flexibility to change the fleet plan, slowing retirements or accelerating them, so what has to be analyzed is the total numbers of the NB and WB fleet. Right now the mainline fleet is around 620 aircraft, which is an increase of ~20 compared to recent years (half of them has is an increase of the WB fleet -77W-, and half of them of the NB).

This year and at least for the next 3 ones, AA is going to have +50 new airplanes each year. And everything in this post is without even considering the US Airways fleet nor their orders.

You would be surprised what happens, when a plane needs to be repaired while a new livery is being rolled out. At ORD, I saw UA aircraft in the Saul Bass livery with a nose cone painted in the pre-Saul Bass livery. Even better was a white nose cone with the orange, red, and blue stripes on a gray and blue plane.

A friend of mine in Atlanta has seen a number of DL hybrids between the 70s/80s livery, the livery after that, the wavy gravy livery, and the current one, between nose cones, rudders, and engine cowlings.

I'm sure the blank rudder will either get painted or replaced with a painted rudder.

Of course, it could have been worse. It could have had the red A and part of the eagle.

Of note, they have placed oneworld stickers next to both 1L and 2L, will be interesting to see if they utilize boarding at 2L which has been fairly rare on the A321.

It has been stated that 2L will be used (atleast on the A321Ts).

Nice! I find it very interesting that the 319 nose numbers started with 001 and the 321T start at 783? What's up with that?

Just when I thought I would understand their ship numbers, they do something like this.
I haven't a clue why or how they picked 783 to start with. How many "T's" are they getting?

At the end of 2014 US will have almost 83 IAE-Powered 321s (64 currently, plus the 16 delieveres in 2014 makes 80) so perhaps the numbering is to accomdate the US fleet?

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

It definately looks great with the grey fuselage being kept instead of the white. I think QR should also do the same because that all-white fuselage really looks very odd in my opinion for airlines which don't have the white color in their standard livery.

Talking about this new AA OneWorld 777, are they planning on painting any new to be delivered 738's in this new OneWorld livery?

Forgive me if this has been asked, but are they going to paint ANY 757?

Seems like a major omission...unless they are all going away sooner than later.

I think once all the widebodies gets painted, you will see an increasing number of b737s getting painted. Of course this is without counting the US Airways fleet.

I wonder the same thing...ditto with the MD-80s. However, as has been reported here the 80s are staying for 3 more years, so it does make sense to NOT paint them. But the 757s will be around beyond 2016...right? Pretty please!

It would indeed be great to see their MD80 and 757 in the new livery but what I remember the MD80 will not get painted and the 757 I've read different stories, one being that they won't be painted and one being that a few 757's will be painted in the new livery. I guess I will have to wait when the first one comes out or not.

I would like to know if AA will paint a few of their 738's in the new OneWorld livery. Also, now that the merger is going ahead, I asusme that all brandnew Airbus aircraft will be painted in the new AA colors at the Airbus facilities? I think there are still a few Airbuses at the facility in Germany (XFW) still having the US livery, is that correct?

I am not sure anyone really knows for sure. I would venture to say we will see at least some 757 in the new paint. I would guess the ones currently outfitted with 16J class seats serving international routes would be first but that's just my thought.

unless they are adding more paint facilities I would think the priority now is the US fleet

thanks dtw757, can't wait for your first update and pics once the first US planes go in

It's been confirmed by AA and on previous versions of this post that there will be MD80s and 757s in the new livery.

There are still 166 S80s, 3 years is not enough to replace them: it would mean 55 replacements by year, which is more or less the number of narrowbodies that AA will get each year, but you have to keep in mind that the 321s will replace the 762s first and then the 752s, not the S80s. This is why I would say that the S80s will be in AA's fleet for the next 4-5 years.
