Please change it. The new AA paint job is too loud, arrogant looking, and does not even resemble the American flag. They ought to do what United did when it merged with Continental. They kept the Continental livery and wrote UNITED above it. US Airways has a very sharp paint job. Just replace the word US Airways with American and keep the US paint job.

Lose the tail paint scheme. But first, Doug Parker will I hope not make the new AA a clone of the old US. AA customer service is much better than US in both personal and company policy.
Remember when US charged for water ala Spirit airlines? US charges its best repeat customers to redeem frequent flyer miles online without the use of a res agent. All bush league moves.
Too bad the Airbus planes at AA cannot be buffed silver as the Boeing planes are. The polished AA scheme was the best in the business and it was unmistakeably recognizable from any vantage point.

The new paint livery will stay. 777 currently being painted at $250,000 each. Public does not care, price and schedule obtained by online tickets is the driver.

Predesigned obsolescence.

The vulgarly vial AA livery, was probably selected so a more universally liked design could be adopted by US and AA, and thus win the hearts and minds of the newly merging employee groups at the carriers.

The top exec board at AA was obviously smoothing the way for Doug Parker by approving the monstrosity of AA's new color scheme.

To each his own--people's tastes vary hugely. IMHO, the ols American paint job was okay but getting stale and the current US Airways scheme downright ugly. The new paint scheme seems fairly nice to me.

Well, why can't we have all three liveries? Keep the old American livery, leave the US Airways planes the way they are (slap a logo over the tail if it's really that important), and maybe repaint SOME planes in the new American scheme. Boom. Everyone's happy. That's what they should have done with United and Continental.
