American Airlines Unveils New Look at Tulsa Airport
It's a new year and American Airlines has begun rolling out their new look here in Tulsa.
Officials were on hand at the Tulsa International Airport Tuesday morning as the company unveiled a new logo and exterior for its planes, including the already delivered Flagship Boeing 777-300ER aircraft set to fly on Jan. 31.
"Since placing our landmark aircraft order in July of 2011, we've been building anticipation toward a moment in time when the outside of our aircraft reflects the progress we've made to modernize our airline on the inside," said Tom Horton, American's Chairman and CEO.
Last week the airline introduced a new logo and paint job Thursday in a video posted on its website.
The red, white and blue stripes along the side of the fuselage are gone. There's a new logo and a new paint scheme on the tail.
American is getting close to emerging from more than a year under bankruptcy protection. It's considering whether to merge with US Airways or remain on its own.
