DALLAS The merger is complete and now American Airlines employees have one more question to answer: do they like the previous livery or the new design?

In a newsletter to employees Monday, CEO Doug Parker asked them to decide the look of the American Airlines tail design.

'I think the newly painted aircraft look extremely nice and have heard the same from many of you,' Parker said. 'So, we aren't going to mess with the fuselage. That just leaves the tail.'

Parker said he personally likes both designs and is open to the choice made by employees.

American Airlines posted the announcement that employees would make the decision on their Twitter account later in the evening.

Employees have until January 2 to choose between the original logo with a blue eagle between a red 'A' and blue 'A' or the new American flag design.
