The reaction from Twitter was swift. Here's a sampling of some of the comments.

@Robpegoraro

Good God, American Airlines. What have you done? skift.com/2013/01/17/ame… (I liked United's tulip logo, but this seems way worse.)

@RWMann

Angry bird? RT @e_russell: Nooooo RT @greg787 The full new logo with lettering pic.twitter.com/rsbHzwaU

@RojasTalent

You're bankrupt. What do you do? Spend tens of millions of dollars on a new logo. Who? #AmericanAirlines. http://t.co/L4FIKaE8

@LittleKingRegan

I like it. For a company that has a long history and wants a jolt, there's a modern yet classic feel to it.

@mistersilverman

"Blade" is a stretch. Looks like a tail w/ an eagle head superimposed.

@willowbarcelona

Looks like the US Post Office. #weird

@Harrietehe

Seems a touch arrogant. Does this mean they do not think the merger will go through?

@misc

@AmericanAir it looks… flaccid.

@jbenedeictbrown

Another company ditches Helvetica - the new look of #AmericanAirlines: http://t.co/CebvDu7G

@gardenbre

@AmericanAir looks like it's lost the first part of itself and a wing's folded over the wrong way #Huh?

@JoeLallouz

@AmericanAir I kind of think it's cool.

@jbeutler

@thepointsguy New @AmericanAir logo is definitely an improvement but maybe not as awesome as it could have been...

@dimoko

@gatsby @AmericanAir @rafat @skiftnews It looks like the sticker is peeling off of the plane

Frank

Actually I like the lettering on the fuselage, modern look. The tail is a bit too much I think

Tom

OMG! Maybe it will grow on me but, my first reaction is WTF?!

AlexJ

Ugh. Looks like a regional carrier.

Gary

A US Airways merger would be a disaster, but I almost wish for it so we could get another try a different livery.

Mike Saunders

REALLY

Jamba juice

Nice try...but a big miss

Mike

The US Air Logo is underneath.
