American is set to introduce their first Boeing 777-300ER into service with an inaugural flight from DFW to Sao Paulo on January 31. They’ve already taken delivery of two 777-300 aircraft and another is soon to be delivered.
This weekend American flew their first 77W, N717AN, to Miami and plane spotters were on hand to capture its arrival: it was still painted gray with a white tail and without a logo.
American’s second 77W, N718AN, was parked outside a hanger at DFW as recently as January 7. I was at the airport on Saturday and didn’t see it, and according to FlightAware it hasn’t gone anywhere. I assume it’s inside one of the maintanence hangers.
American’s third 777-300ER, N719AN, is still at the Boeing factory.
I heard from a credible source that American’s fourth 777-300ER, I’m assuming it will be aircraft N720AN, will be the first to be fully painted in the new livery.
So I wonder if the first three are going to sport an interim livery or if they will be have the traditional AA logo painted ont he white tail? I wonder how much longer we’ll have to wait for the new logo?
