FORT WORTH (AP) - The new CEO of American Airlines will let employees settle a dispute over the fleet’s appearance by letting them pick a design for the tails of planes.

They’ll get to choose between a stylized eagle that graced the tails for many years, and the bold red, white and blue horizontal bars that replaced the bird earlier this year.

Doug Parker, who became CEO last week with the closing of Fort Worth-based American’s merger with US Airways, said Monday that voting will run through Jan. 2.

Just a year ago, American introduced the first major overhaul of the livery — airline talk for the paint job and logos — in more than four decades. New planes are a uniform light color with “American” superimposed in giant letters on the sides.
