I know, I'm beating this topic like a dead horse... however this is the latest version according to the updates I have received...

I promise it'll be my last "preview" post until the new scheme comes out in a couple weeks or so... Big grin

Thats a great looking livery on the 744. It would be a great improvement from the current color scheme. Hopefully they will be around long enough to paint the planes in it!!

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

at first you miss the colors of united, it was such a holdout to the old and bold, much like the old Northwest.

However, that scheme is very nice, the euro white is executed very well, I can't complain at all.

I thought we weren't going with a white body?

Here's a random theory: I'll call it the Coffee Cup Theory...

Two years ago UA decided for some bizarre reason to take our styrophoam coffee cups used in Economy and change them from white to a cream colored band across the middle. Same UA modern logo and tulip, just an addition of the cream color. The explanation I got from Onboard service was to refresh the UA image and keep it consistant. I rolled my eyes and laughed.

Anyway, any chance of the new livery being a cream color top?

So just to throw in my humble opinion....

I'm on the fence about the white. It looks good when the Aircraft is clean but when it's in need of a bath it can look horrible. Just look at some of the pics of the Delta planes we've seen on this wonderful site.

With United being cash strapped but getting there I can't help but wonder if the planes won't be washed much due to the cost. Although, I'd be first in line if United came to me and said "If you're not doing anything why don't you come up to SFO and give a 744 a bath."  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Talk about a up close and personal encounter with some fine machinery.

Anyways, back to my fence post.

The reason that lighter colors are being used on aircraft is the reduced costs. Dark paint is added weight to the plane, which equals money wasted. The airlines know that the general public doesn't give 2 cents about what the color looks like on the outside, its the inside that counts to the people. How often do people choose an airline because of the paint job its a one time use to many people. Also I enjoy Continentals paint scheme, it says what the airlines about, conservative, business and professional, except for their "Bling Bling" ad campaign.

So I have a question...When a company like United is looking to cut back cost, why would they be thinking of updating the paint scheme on their livery. They have to have more important things to worry about...Does anyone else agree with me??

PS. I hate the new livery colors

Crberkley,
Accually this saves money, it costs alot more then you would think to paint a aircraft. However i imagine UAL will not pull any aircraft outta service to paint the new livery, other then the first few just to show it off. It will be applyed to undelivered aircraft, aircraft that are in for heavy maintinance checks, and need to be repainted anyway. Going with white and less darker colors i think is a smart move, as Logos and such are accually decals applyed to the aircraft. And painting it one main white color as opposed to three dark on the body, is cheaper. And i do believe white is a cheap paint color (cost wise! ) However in my opinion I love the change, but i will sure miss the Solid Blue that we see, too bad they couldnt update it, but instead of euro white, have it the blue they have now with the new tail and Logo. Also like frontiers4ever mentioned, dark colors are heavier, and im sure if you add the difference in fuel costs with the different paintjobs, it would probally be a big difference, and UAL can use all the money it can right now!

Whatever the final colors turn out to be I think there will be a lot of white in it. The reason is if they go broke and have to return the planes to the Lessor it will be easier for them to slap a new title on it for its new owner, or at least be cheaper to repaint in the event of bankruptcy. They are not out of the woods yet.

I dont think UA is deciding their new livery on the fact that they might go broke and have to get rid of the planes. You are pretty creative to take a discussion on livery and some how twist it into UA bashing! United will not shut down and will have a new livery that reflects a new image not something that will be easily repainted for a new carrier......

SOME PEOPLE!

Please tell me if I am crazy, but *still* for some odd reason I am reminded of jetBlue when I see these "new" colours...Don't get me wrong I love jetBlue's colours as well as the proposed UA colours, but they just seem very similar to me...The blue is different, but the style of both are very similar. Anyone agree?
