A lot of you responded to last week's "What's funny about this picture". As I am wont to do, I showed you a shot with more than one notable thing in it. So, I'll make a list:
- The most obvious is the new and old American liveries side-by-side
- Next, the pairing of an A321 and a B757, which are easily mistaken for one another
But those of you who've been here for a while know that I'm usually not that easy, and several of you commented to that effect. But a handful of you also caught another thing:
- The A321 wearing the new American colors is actually a US Airways airplane. The old-style Airbus wingtip fences are a tell-tale, and the registration gives it away.
As an aside, I don't believe I've noticed an American B757 wearing the new livery, nor an MD-80. In the case of the MD-80s, I suspect that they won't get the new colors at all, as they're being phased out over the next year or so.
