The new livery is now old. Stay tuned for a major announcement and a new-new livery.

Maybe just busy keeping the summer rush going with max aircraft utilization.

Probably be about 5 more years until the last aircraft with the sea foam paint is either repainted or retired.

I thought they only repainted when in times of financial crisis?

What a lot of people don't realize is, a plane needs to be completely stripped every few years anyways in order to check the fuselage skin for cracks. It's always repainted back into the same scheme, so really, nobody is the wiser.

Reprinting a fleet on that schedule doesn't add any additional cost to an airline.

Not sure where you're getting your information but that is not true, aircraft are X-rayed to check for stress cracks, can't even imagine relying on the naked eye for something as important as that. I've flown the same aircraft with the same paint and flaws in that paint for several years. I've also seen the process for the X-ray.
However, it is true that every so often aircraft will need to be repainted and I doubt many of ACs aircraft will go in ahead of that schedule but I could be wrong.

According to @contrailaviationphotography an A330 will be going in for painting next week. Not sure where they get their info from.

Was told they do painting when an aircraft is scheduled for maintenance work but I could be wrong.

Some aircraft require stripping on a schedule; some don't depends on the type certificate and approved maintenance schedule.

The current AC toothpaste livery is over 11 years old.
