American Airlines has sent their first 757-200 with Oneworld titles into service.

Aircraft N174AA, still dressed (or undressed) in American’s typical bare metal polish, is an internationally-configured aircraft. This means that enthusiasts looking to get a look at it will only get lucky at domestic airports if there is an equipment swap of some sort.

This 757 joins fellow fleet-mate N395AN, a 767-300, that was introduced with the same scheme last week. Two 777-200s have also already been adorned with Oneworld titles.
