A friend shot the A319 in question at CLT yesterday. If you compare this with all the shots on here you can see that the flag has been moved to accommodate what ever this lump or bump is. Credit Jay Selman.

Quoting AM777LR (Reply 194):
We aren't going by date, we going by age. For example, N127AJ, is 13 years old. It still has a good 16 years left operating. So why would AA continue to polish the aircraft if they could paint it in the new colors.

You're assuming AA is going to be keeping the aircraft for those 16 years and not getting rid of it before it's wore out.

On a related subject, the CR Smith Museum gift shop has the new
B77W models in stock with the new livery.

They had a large collection of 1:200 and a few Gemini 1:400 's in stock
as of last Saturday.

Is that a GoGo Wifi ATG-4 antenna/reciever? the US Airbus' have these bumps also and I believe that's what it is.

In rough numbers, how much will this repainting program will cost to AA?

I´m guessing that will be a LOT OF money.

Nothing extra for all the newly-delivered 738, 773 an A319, obviously.

This - pretty old - thread discusses cost for repainting existing planes:
Cost Of Painting A Plane? (by YULYMX Jul 28 2006 in Civil Aviation)
It puts the cost for an L.1011 at $136,000 - for a full paint strip and repaint.

Keep in mind that some birds had to be repainted anyway and, according to experiences AC had with a polished 767, having a painted plane actually saves in maintenance cost. This ties in with a document Boeing themselves have published on the subject (see here).

The only real spending here will be if they decide to upgrade the interior of the 7378 to be comparable to the new ones coming in OCT. We know the 7772 and half the 7673 will get a refurbish inside. but noting yet on the 737s. My guess would of been that they will do it if Horton and company stay on but if D.Parker and his crew take over then idk.

Yet they have officially announced that they will only paint have the 767-300s, alot of the younger build built 7673s won't get painted.

Right now it looks like in five years or six years from now, by the end of the decade, the 767 fleet will be down to 29, only 300s and none of the 200s.

This is what I predict for the 767 fleet:

767 fleet today (Sept 2013): 12 200s and 58 300s.
767 fleet in 2015: 58 300s. No more 200s. JFK-LAX will be all A321T by mid 2015.
767 fleet in 2019: 29 300s. By then all remaining 29 will be repainted in the new livery.
Last 767 to leave by mid 2020s.

This is what I predict for the 757 fleet:

757 fleet today (Sept 2013): 93. Almost a quarter of the whole 757 fleet is now gone.
757 fleet in 2019: 20, only the ones flying internationally will remain by that time. Definitely at least one of the remaining 20 will be repainted in the new livery.
Last 757 to leave by early 2020s.

This is what I predict for the MD-80 fleet:

MD-80 fleet today (Sept 2013): 176. The MD-80 fleet is now less than half of what it was at its peak ten years ago.
MD-80 fleet end of this year: 150
MD-80 fleet end of 2014: 120
MD-80 fleet end of 2015: 90
MD-80 fleet end of 2016: 60
MD-80 fleet end of 2017: 30. By then, definitely at least one of the remaining 30 will be repainted in the new livery.
Last MD-80 to leave by late 2018 or early 2019.

Of course all of the above can change depending on how the price of jet fuel fluctuates. If it goes down then American may consider keeping the last MD-80 till the early 2020s, by then the youngest one will be 20. By then American should have received all 130 A32X's OEOs: 65 A319s and 65 A321s which include a restricted fleet of A321Ts.

There are already 7 A319s in the fleet according to Wikipedia.

So far no 757 and no MD-80 have yet been repainted. Don't expect that to happen before the beginning of 2014.

I don't mention the 762 because we know those are the least likely to be repainted. The remaining 12 762s will be leaving the fleet all in 2014, the last one should leave by next summer, if not next summer next fall. They'll definitely be gone in 2015.

Updated 9/26. If anyone has the desire to fly on an Embraer 135 you'd better do it soon as they will all be out of service within the next month or so. As far as the 140's go, they are next to leave the fleet but I don't know how fast that will all happen and if any of them will see the new paint. When the "Connection" branding disappears it may be possible that those aircraft will simply have "Connection" painted over and "Eagle" placed on them much like was done with the 10 aircraft that went from MQ to Trans States and then returned.

Updated 10/4. Pretty active week including several new aircraft being delivered. A full half of the 772 fleet will now be in the new colors. It's also looking like American Connection brand aircraft will begin to disappear and should be totally gone around a year from now. A couple of cities which are currently only serviced by RP (FNT, TOL) will begin to see MQ metal begin to return in January.

Speaking of A321's, I saw a US A321 parked over at AA's DWH hangar
while driving thru DFW on my way to work this am

Negative, this weekend both the Aviation & Transportation Career Expo AND Skyball are happening at the same time at DFW. Static display aircraft are in for the occasion as always. Both events are sponsored and hosted in part by American Airlines. New for this year, US Airways is a co-sponsor.

Hello,

Not 100% related to the subject but also not worth opening a new thread. AA's next A319 (MSN 5827 / N9013A) made its first flight before being painted, a quite unusual sight:

I heard this second hand from a fellow pilot who was at a local base meeting. I did not attend, so again, this is second hand info.

The group was told that they were not planning on painting the 80's.

Anyone else hear the same info?

Not all of them that's for sure, but likely at least ONE of the remaining 172 aircraft, it all depends whether or not there are D Checks scheduled for those. Same with the 757, not all of them but at least ONE of the remaining 93 aircraft in the fleet. At this point I don't think any of the 762s will be repainted, given that they have seven months left in the fleet, the last flight is scheduled for May of 2014.
However I wouldn't bet anything about which will and which won't be repainted.

I heard the same thing last week, and possibly speeding up the MD-80 retirements.They recently retired 5 MD-80s in one week.

I could be, but in the last few years this has been more or less the pattern. During spring / summer there aren't many retirements, while during the months going from Oct to Feb there are a lot more.

Has there been any reason mentioned as to why the 75L metal isn't being painted?

I would think because none has had a D Check yet since the new scheme was introduced earlier this year.

I can't remember the AA's 757 history. Are the 75Ls the newest of the 757s or are there newer jets in the fleet.
