Question Us Airways / American Airlines livery ???

With the merger of the 2 airlines will the US Airways Aircrafts be repainted in the New American livery ???

If so the Airbus A330 & the A320 will look great with it.

Any infos about that ???

Thanks,

Arnaud

I would say yes though Doug Parker (American CEO and former US Airways) would not comment on whether or not the livery would be changed in a recent interview.

Here's part of it.So, will the new American Airlines keep the old American Airlines? new paint job? | Dallas Morning News

I would love to see the US Airways livery and logo preserved some way. I will really miss the name, US Airways.

I think they'll keep it. They undoubtedly already spent a lot of money promoting the new brand. They would've delayed the re-branding until after the merger was announced if they weren't sure that they would keep the new brand (the two were within a few weeks of each other). Oh, well. It will be sad to see the US name go, but I really like the new AA livery. Hopefully we will see it on some Dash 8s!

I like the new American livery except for the tail which im yet too come around too....

I think it would be good to keep the silver paint fuselage and American titles but maybe adjust just the tail and somehow incorporate a US Airways influence there... Ive always been a fan of current US Airways colours...

Now is the time to bite the bullet and decide, As the size of Americans fleet yet too be painted against the newly painted jets surely is bigger?? Cant be too much of a big job as the jets in the new paint could just be repainted last??

Who knows....

Apparently it is going to a vote

Doug Parker to let American Airlines employees decide whether to keep the new AA tail | Dallas Morning News

And someone posted this on airliners.net

I really hope the new livery wins. As much as I liked the old livery it was time for a change, and the new tail is striking! Especially in person when the sun is hitting it! I would hate to see it go for the same old AA on the tail. All I can do now is wait though. My vote has been cast.

Given those two choices, it would be awful if the old tail won. Regardless of your opinion on the new livery and tail, I'm sure that we can all agree that the new body with the old tail looks rather lazy. Having two logos, both the 'new' and 'old' eagle, looks horribly unprofessional.

hmmm....now that ive seen both graphic illustrations on an airbus , the old AA tail on the new livery is not that bad the grey tail blends in with the new fuselage livery, but IMHO it wouldnt look nice on eagles....but anyway i cast my vote.

I would like to see the new tail with the old cheatline in matching colors.

I do not care what they do as long as they present something that looks more like an eagle and not a paper tab.

The new livery is fine except for it not having a decent logo. Even a modernized AA Eagle logo would do.

When the livery and logo was changed 40 years ago and it did not have an eagle, the employees petitioned to bring back the eagle and it was placed between the red and blue A's.

So maybe something can be done now to preserve the eagle from extinction again.

I thought it was a joke when I signed into Jetnet, the AAL employee website, this evening, and agree with you. I really like the new livery- it looks better in person than in photographs. I voted for the new tail.

I would like to see them keep it. While I like the US Airways logo and livery, I'm glad the name is disappearing from the skies. I've always thought it was just about as dumb a name as you can get for an airline.
