Only one feature per topic…

@Carson can I add the links to the liveries? Or that´s also forbidden?

Why General?

They say feature topics that do not follow guidelines do not belong there…

Do you have the exact paragraph that points out that¡

Trying to find it…

There are no British Airways 772 retrojets. G-ZZZB just happened to be painted in the old Landor livery when it was delivered.

Missing:

AA Reno Air
AA AirCal
AA PSA
AA Allegheny
AA US Airways
AA Piedmont
AA America West (There were two, one was repainted to normal livery IIRC)
AA Astrojet 738
Aeroflot A320
LOT Polish E-170 or E-175
KLM 738
The other Qantas 738
I think there are 2 Pakistan A320s
Pakistan 777
LH 747-8
Air France A320
Turkish A330
MEA A321
Alaska Starliner

I’ll keep updating this as I remember some

AA 752 Astrojet has been un-retrojetted
