Confirmed: No Polished (Unpainted) Finish For American Airlines’ New Livery

American Airlines’ first 777-300ER touched down at DFW today, looking like it’s substantially covered in white.  I can’t confirm it’s paint and not a decal, but it sure looks like paint.  This is not earth-shattering news, it was pretty widely expected to be a much more significant paint/decal job.

Sigh, change is a part of life.  And, who knows?  I may really like the new livery.  But, I’ll sure miss the old one.  Yes, I know that makes me a bit weird when it comes to travel.  But, then again, I think we’ve already confirmed that.  After all, who goes to Zurich for 18 hours?
