Smile American Airlines Current/New Livery

Im posting this because I'm curious as to what AA aircraft have been painted and what aircraft will be painted. And also what aircraft are they getting new that they will paint?

This unofficial site has been tracking the repainting progress of the fleet:

They also have a twitter page with regular fleet status updates:

Hope that helps,

I doubt they will repaint the MD-80 series aircraft.

It's been stated numerous times that they won't even though the last MD isn't supposed to be retired until 2018. At least we'll have the classic livery around that long.

Well, sorry. I have not seen where this has been stated. I am just making an assumption that the cost of repainting and their retirement means no Mad Dog will be repainted.

Repainting isn't an optional cost. Sure, if you change your livery and want everything to look the same as quickly as possible then it becomes an added expense. However, repainting is part of normal maintenance. The overall plan may be to get rid of each one as they come up for their D checks.

Yep, Maddogs won't be painted in the new livery, so until 2018 or until they are all retired the old AA livery will be around. I also believe the E140's in American Eagle livery won't be repainted as those are being retired, but the E145's are being painted. Also, they are keeping one aircraft in the old AA colors, I am assuming a 737?

On the US Airways side the 767's won't be repainted because they are gone next month I believe, and currently no E190's and one A320 have been repainted, although those will probably get the new paint at some point.

I am in no hurry to see the previous livery and logo disappear.

Me neither. Was very excited a month ago when they swapped a newly painted 738 for one in the old livery.
