With N563UW’s exit from the paint shop on Tuesday, Nov. 22, American Airlines has now painted all 299 former US Airways mainline planes.

The first US Airways plane was painted in the American livery in January 2014, just one month after the merger closed. The only US Airways livery can be seen on the US Airways heritage livery aircraft (N578UW). Also, some regional aircraft will still operate in the US Airways Express livery until May 2017.

More than 80 percent of American’s fleet is now operating in the new livery. In addition to the former US Airways regional jets, American still has about 100 B737s in the polished metal livery. They will be painted by the end of 2017. A handful of B757s and MD-80s, will continue flying in the old paint scheme. These aircraft will eventually be retired.
