This final note today, an aviation story that has nothing to do with Boeing 787s or battery fires or anything like that.

American Airlines rolled out its new livery today — that’s a fancy word for the paint scheme they use on planes.

Here’s another word: Ugly. To quote one industry observer, the new logo looks like a seagull sticking its head out of a shower curtain.
