Re: American livery. Dated?

They could have “refreshed” the livery a bit to echo the old scheme (the new one doesn’t at all), but if they were trying to pass off as being “a new American” (a new airline), the livery change makes sense. Biggest issue I think was the 787s unable to retain polished metal, although they could’ve ...
