American takes delivery of the last Boeing 737-800, the fleet is now repainted

The last Boeing 737-800 built for American Airlines

American Airlines (Dallas/Fort Worth) took delivery of the last Boeing 737-800 (the pictured N359PX above) on December 12, 2017. All future 737 deliveries will be for the new Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 (below). The entire Boeing 737-800 fleet has now been repainted, except one which will be preserved in the 1968 “tri-color” livery as a legacy jet (see bottom photo).

This brings the Boeing 737-800 fleet to 304 aircraft.
