World Airline News is reporting that Phoenix-based Mesa Airlines, a regional carrier for American Airlines as well as United Airlines, has repainted two of its CRJ-900s in a new Mesa livery. Previously, these two Mesa aircraft had been painted in the American livery.

Now in a generic in-house livery, ex American Eagle

The freshly-painted planes have a simple design, with an all-white fuselage and a black tail showing the current Mesa Airlines logo. WAN is reporting that the two CRJs sporting this new livery are based at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and as you might have guessed fly mostly for American Airlines.

Unless you’re a frequent flyer, you might not be familiar with Mesa Airlines. Mesa was founded in 1980, has 133 aircraft operating as American Eagle and United Express. Mesa has a fleet of CRJs as well as Embraer aircraft that service American and United’s regional routes.

Now, Mesa will be showing off its own livery alongside the two main carriers for which it flies regional aircraft. So, AvgGeeks and planespotters keep any eye out at DFW for the new livery.
