    Hmm not surprised since they got the new livery on the 77W. Looking forward to what will happen unless it's a merger with US. :eek:

    Dallas WTAA report Jason Whitely tweeted that the expected date of reveal for the new livery is tomorrow: LINK.

    Still I wouldn't call this an "interesting development". This is something people have been expecting for months. With the 77W launch just two weeks away, everyone knew this was coming. ;)

    Too bad the launch is this late in the year. Otherwise our new elite cards and tags would be based on the new look.

    Perhaps that explains why I haven't gotten my new UNITED card yet -- they are actively working on a response to AA's new livery :D

    Honestly, the current elite cards don't match AA's branding/livery at all. But an updated elite card would always be welcome. :)

    The question on every FFer board every time any airline does something .... "WILL THEY MATCH!!?!"

    But they did just renewed the current design just approximately 2 years ago if my memory serves correct, which I think still looks ok and fresh.

    It was a nice new look, but I'm not overly thrilled with it.

    I actually laid out my entire pack of loyalty cards, hotel and airline, a few weeks ago and my friends started rating how attractive they thought each card was. AA's EXP card scored low marks across the board sadly. :(

    I hope they'll change those horrible looking seats in Economy on their Boeings. They look and feel so outdated.

    Count the windows -- is it at least a 773? ;)

    77W looks great inside. Does anyone know which routes will it fly besides DFW-GRU?

    JFK-LHR, JFK-GRU, DFW-LHR, and LAX-LHR are the only announced routes to date.

    Thanks! JFK-LHR looks very appealing :) The only problem is that I don't think it's possible to book AA100 on MileSaver Award at 100K RT. It is available though for 200K RT. I found availability further down the road ;)

    Just make sure you're on one of the flights with a 77W listed as the operating aircraft. Not all JFK-LHR routes will feature the new 77W.
