Are you a fan of airline retro liveries the same way I am? If so there are three new American Airlines 737-800s you should be getting excited about. Chief Integration Officer Beverly Goulet, speaking at the International Aviation Forecast Summit this week in Las Vegas, announced that the next three liveries will be AirCal, Reno Air and TWA. They are expected to appear in the fleet sometime this “autumn.”

That’s a lot of AvGeek fun right there. And it goes well with the retro amenity kits for business class passengers and some of the other heritage marketing efforts the company has pursued over the years.
And, while you’re at it, try to spot the KLM, Lufthansa (multiple versions), Aer Lingus and United (two versions) retro liveries. And maybe wonder a bit why Delta doesn’t bother with such.
Any favorites you’ve got??

During all the years that Delta was transitioning liveries, one could argue half their fleet at any time between around 1997 and 2009 was a retro livery. 🙂
But, seriously, it would be nice to see a Delta widget and a NW red tail out there.
Really wish Delta would do it.
Pan Am? Northwest? Republic? Classic widget?
The list goes on and on.
We need a Western Airlines retro! Come on Delta, bring the red W back
“Western Airlines, the oooooooooonly way to fly”
DL could do Hughes Airwest
UA could do PA, too
Qantas have a retro livery on one of their 73Hs at the moment
