    The new head of American Airlines is letting employees decide what goes on the tail of their planes.

    In a letter to employees, American’s new CEO Doug Parker told employees they’ll decide on whether to go back to the classic “Double A” and eagle symbol, or to keep the new American flag design.

    The newer design was unveiled in January of this year.

    A spokesperson for American Airlines told NBC DFW, that the logo on the body of the plane would not be changing.

    The spokesperson also added that 200 planes have been painted with the new design on the wing, and roughly 1000 planes still have not been changed to the new design.

    The spokesperson also said going back to the older design could cost the airline money, but she didn’t know exactly how much.

    Employee voting ends on Jan. 4.
