Default American Airlines is buying more paint!

Not sure I like the livery, but it looks like AA is making some big changes to their a/c..

I know I'm a Delta guy - but I always liked the polished AA fuselage. The new forward logo initially reminded me of the "Greyhound" logo - and the tail seems like they're trying to incorporate the USAir logo which had to incorporate the America West logo... Overall, I don't think it's an improvement. And... I'm no fan of the Delta "Citgo" logo either - I still like the old black nose "widget" scheme.

Why would they repaint all their jets when a merger with USAir is in the works?

I don't know that I like it. I like the classy look of the polished and simple planes as well.

I kinda like it, but I like the polished aluminum scheme better. All I can ever think of when airlines do things like this is, they've laid off pilots and flight attendants, stop retired pilots pensions (kind of a personal note for me), yet they have the money for all new paint jobs and executive bonuses? I feel like they should put their money into their people. I know it's a thread about a new livery, didn't mean to get all carried away. Just my two cents.

You make a great point sir. I can't wait to get away from AMR.

This is all just smoke and mirrors to detract from the problems the airline (as a business) has not been able to solve. Lipstick on a pig.

I think it sucks.

I hate it when the American flag is stylized.

US Air did the same. Theirs blows too.

The Old American "Orange Lightning bolt" was the coolest-

The classic jet (orange & Bolt as mentioned) is the best!!!. If that Boeing 737 AA is still flying around, people better take some good pictures of it since I've got a feeling it will be a goner.

The New Livery, New Logo and New Look is nice but I still want the old look. That's much better.
