Posted on 01/18/2013 7:00:23 PM PST by ConservativeStatement
American Airlines today unveiled a new design scheme for its fleet. The new logo and livery are the first fleet-wide update in 40 years.
The nations third-largest airline is in merger talks with US Airways. Should the airlines merge, the new airline will be called American Airlines, so there wont be a need to repaint to match US Airways. If the airlines do merge, the new airline will be the worlds largest.

If that’s it in the picture you posted I love it!
That is a copy of the photo in the link.
I’d like it better with a white star in each of
the blue patches but it’s nice, oh, and where are
the racks for external ordinance?
That jetliner is clearly a high-ranking officer of the Galactic Empire.
The unions cost the airlines (and passengers) billions upon billions due to ridiculous workrules and confiscatory wages. Eliminate the union goons at all levels and American Airlines will become robust financially overnight. The extortion racket of Big Labor has already decimated the auto industry and it won't stop until every domestic carrier is also destroyed.
From what I have heard, AA has saved itself a lot of money through the years by leaving the planes unpainted.
Every time I see an American Airlines ad I think of Lesbianism.
I often watch the local news at 5. I sort of like to cut it close so I don’t have to see the final shot of “The Ellen” show. If I see the American Airlines plane I know the show is over. There is also a yellow ribbon which I have no idea what it stands for.
Nice but I wish they would go back to the orange lightning bolt design of the 50’s and 60’s.
As a kid, I remember united airlines having this on their tails.
Is it a clock that is 90 minutes behind? That would be truth in advertising.
Gays, Granies and Grandes!
Gays, Grannies and Grandes!
Paint adds weight to the aircraft which uses more fuel to keep it flight. They also figured out that by leaving olives out of the cocktail drinks saved them a million dollars a year.
Of course now they charge you for pillows and blankets. Old AA employee.
The tail looks like a piano keyboard.
I thought stars would look nice too but may have been visible in the design
AA has saved itself a lot of money by packing people in so tightly they can hardly move.
Last time I flew on AA, the airplane hit a bump in the air and my pencil hopped off the tray-table onto the floor. I could see it down there, but there was not enough room to contort myself to pick it up. No more crossword, so I got out my book to read.
When the guy in front of me put his chair back it obscured my book in normal reading position.
First Airline I flew for.....Convair 404's , where you could tell who the copilot was by the grease on his shirt (lol)
Don’t forget Eastern, Braniff, and PanAm- All succumbed to the frequent filer program.
Yeah. It's a post-Constitution flag. The stars (states) have been flattened, like road kill.
Ugly as all get out. These marketing ‘geniuses’ seem to produce worse and worse dreck.
Yeah, when I’m hundreds of millions in debt, I change my logo.
I’d like it more if the blue was on the rudder and the red and white on the front of the tail
It’s like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. If AMR Corporation [AA parent], now in Chapter 11 bankruptcy, survives through 2013 it will be a miracle.
Very linear, non-circular jerkish...
Very descriptive. A lot of imagery in that one sentence.
Where’s Ray Loewy when you need him?
They have their priorities backward...
My dad was a pilot with Braniff. We still have difficulty flying on AA.
They had great paint jobs on their planes. But that was when they were regulated. My family is well entrenched in the industry. My wife & I worked for AA, my two sisters, now retired. My other sister will retire from SW and her husband is a SW Captain. My daughter works for JB as a res agent.
I can fly anywhere dirt cheap on all of those airlines. Did I mention I hate to fly now days. I bought a motor home. I’ll drive. I’m retired, go around me.
Oh, you’re that guy in front of me on the two-lane road going 55. Can’t you travel between midnight and 4:00AM? My dad was a captain throughout all three bankruptcies.
Hey hey, When I’m in the motor home I use the turn outs! lol When I’m on my Harley you get smaller in my mirrors!
