New American Airlines livery

Reminds me of:

I like it (as I like those Pepsi Light cans), but I prefered the "chrome" unpainted look. Why do they change it?

@Viva: The new look is meant to make the outside of American's planes "reflect the progress we've made on the inside."

Oh, what a terrible piece of nonsensical marketing!

From USA Today: "To maintain the planes' polished-metal look, American is turning to paint. It must because aircraft makers are turning to carbon composites rather than metal to make their planes. And they require paint."

Yup. Plastic planes.

Boring! But then the unpainted look is not something American could keep. Sad, because if was an awesome thing.
