American Airlines is rolling out a new look for its aircraft, marking the first fleetwide change to its aircraft exteriors since 1968.

The changes — which also includes a new company logo — bring a dramatically different look to American’s planes, which for decades have been easy to identify by their simple, classic logos and polished metal exteriors.

With all the chatting on all social media channels about how their thoughts on how bad the new livery looks. I for one am very happy with the new changes. Long live American Airlines. Keep up the good work on rebuilding a sleeping giant. Looking forward to see what other mind blowing changes you have to offer in the new future. Although if there is one thing I liked about the livery was the polished alumin. Sourses from American stated

“Since the polished metal look was no longer an option, the importance of the paint selection became critical to honoring American’s silver bird legacy,” American says in a release highlighting its new look. “Silver mica paint was chosen as a way to maintain the silver heritage which American’s people and customers are passionate about, yet progress ahead with a clean new look.”
