Has ACA started to strip the United Express logo off of their CRJ's? One bird came in to GRR today today from ORD and the U's were off the tail and United Express was taken off the cabin. I didn't get a look at the tail and was wondering if they were getting ready to start their LCC or the Mesa takeover..which ever comes first.

The newewst RJ's that ACA are getting do not have the Tulip or UAX titles on the fuselage. N701BR was repainted from the DL operation without the UA tulip or titles. N690BR-N699BR do not have the titles.

Only a few ACA birds are missing the UAL logo so they can be used for charter operations, as stated. It has nothing to do with the LCC. The "Mesa takeover" is only an unsolicited bid from Mesa, not something that will definately happen at this point (and hopefully never will).
The first sign of the coming LCC will appear soon in the form of new red leather seats in the CRJs.

ACA does the same thing with the DL 328 jets. Some of the planes flown are not painted in DL connection colors - just plain blue and white. Same as what Skywest does with EMB-120s. They use the Brasilias on both UA and DL flights, so they stay in the ugly old silver Skywest livery.
