According to the Airline Biz Blog, 52 percent of employees who voted have elected to keep the new AA livery in tact, including the new flag tail design. Over 60,000 employees voted. The results of this vote were much closer than our reader poll here at MJ on Travel where 70 percent of the 118 🙂 (as of 1/2/14) who voted chose to keep the new design. Does this mean that AAL CEO Doug Parker was right when he said that the livery matters more to employees than travelers? I expect so….and that’s from an ex-AA’er.
