Wow, Red White and Blue. How original. Last time they repainted the planes the stock rose to $80 shortly thereafter.

No matter what the paint scheme is, I wish them them all best in the market.

There are a lot of good people at US Airways and at America West.

Better than the old one, better than most of them, but not as good as AWA, and not very exciting. The stylized flag should've been retired.

I prefer AWA's desert theme - I like the orange and green. It was nice to see an airplane without the color blue - very unusual these days. It's a sad day...........

The new scheme kind of reminds me of Braniff after their first trip through BK.

I don't think it'll look as good on the RJ's as the paint scheme they have now.

i thought the new scheme would be like a NASCAR stock car. after the ads on the tray tables, i figured they'd sell the whole outside. just change the name to Madison Avenue Airways.

Instead of the grey mountains like on current AWA planes, there's a sort of grey striped "swoosh" that starts behind the wing and ends up as diaganol lines on the tail. that's a nice touch. it'll have to do.

I still call them USAir.

The current paint scheme which went along with the re-appellation, can only be classified as insipid. The name and color scheme was updated to appeal to more business travellers.

The upcoming one you've posted has a very "Olympic's" look to it.

I love the Heritage paint jobs. Thats a slam dunk.

It shows that management is aware of the different cultures that will be blended in the merger -- and respects everything that those cultures have to offer.

Well done! (I like the Allegheny paint job best!)

I almost thought you forgot to log out, either that or aliens have taken you over.

I think American should do the same and paint a few birds in the old TWA colors.

I've suggested that in the past and they all laughed at me. I think it would be cool, TWAs last paint job ruled!

I agree, but I was sorta joking about how management values different cultures from different mergers.
