FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - First American Airlines wanted to redesign its planes, and now it plans to outfit employees in new uniforms.

The airline said Friday that it hired fashion designers Ken Kaufman and Isaac Franco to create uniforms for pilots, flight attendants and customer-service agents.

The makeover will take 18 months. American didn't say how much it will cost.

Last week American unveiled a new logo and paint scheme for its aircraft.

American is trying to change the image of the company, which filed for bankruptcy protection in 2011. It's considering whether to merge with US Airways or remain on its own.
