Got a couple of questions. How many aicraft will be repainted by summer? and will they be putting ptvs in the 744s when they get repainted? because they could do with them.

What again?? The last livery change wasn't all that long ago. You'd think they'd have better things to spend money on, wouldn't you?

Sounds like re-painting the "TITANIC"!

And as has been said before, repainting won't be an extra expense to them because when an aircraft goes in for its D-check they strip the paint off anyway and have to paint it back on.

So instead of repainting the aircraft in the old colours, itll be painted in the new colours, and the new colours are likely to be simpler and therefore cheaper, which will SAVE United money.

Repainting the Titanic...interesting...

More like repainting the USS Cole...

United received a real whammy of a blow...but they've been (or are being) patched up...and will be back.

I get so tired of this 'they must have better things to spend thier money on' crap....

When you're in bankruptcy, you can't do anything without the judges approval, so HE must be of the opinion that it's a good idea!

What do all of you naysayers want UA to do with it's money besides improve it's product? Paint jobs, new seats, TED are all marketing initiutives. My God, compared to the stiffs (Goodwin, etal) the current management team is a breath of fresh air.

UA is in the midst of a gut-wrenching cultural change for it's employees. Massive layoffs, VERY hefty pay cuts and being asked to work harder and assume more responsibilities. Many people don't like it (can you blame them?) but for the most part they understand that the survival of the company and thier jobs depend on everyone pitching in - the ones that don't understand probably won't be around much longer.

Does the repainted Star Alliance 767 for UA depict some of the new livery for United?

Last I knew UAL no longer painted their own aircraft in-house. They contracted it out several years ago due to the 'HUGE' EPA requirements. OOh, and the current UAL livery is 12 years old. It was unvailed in a commercial for during the Super Bowl. The first a/c painted was a 747-400 done in AMA.

Well said, Ordpark!

United will not only have money saved by repainting planes in simpler colors, but also finishing the //// U N I T E D brand to be reflected off of its aircraft will make the brand shine.

EMBQA-
So if the people here are correct and the first plane is to be painted and rolled out this week, do you think we will see it in a commercial this during this super bowl? I know that a 30 second commerical cost like $8000 milllion-billion, but it was be cool to show off thier new c/s in front of a billion people.

No, I was just making a statment about the last time they painted their aircraft, it was released during the Super Bowl....Southwest did the same thing 2 years ago. UAL has no intent of painting their aircraft while in bankruptcy. As said above, the Judge in charge of this case would need to sign off on that, and I doubt they would with a negitive cash flow. Now, just after they get out of bankruptcy.....maybe. Just look at the average age of all the 'experts' here on .net that are claiming to know that UAL is going to do this...I see that as 14 yrs old. Heck, I have socks older then that...!!

Uhhh... EMBQA, I don't know if we're all communicating here. Are you claiming that UA is not coming up with a new livery? If so... right. We'll leave you in the dust on this one.

If not, then what are you saying in your last post?

They should have changed to this livery many years ago when they retired the "white" livery. But that's just my opinion.

The current livery is not bad at all, if a bit stuffy. The United Airlines script on the fuselage though is a tad old and not consistent with the U N I T E D lettering and the "ted" connection.

Not quite eurowhite

UA744flagship at first had heard that it was eurowhite, but later he provided info that UA management had changed its mind and would instead be painting the aircraft with a blue belly and either a "cheatline" or "cheatstrip" of three-tone United blue.

That link provided above gives a good idea of what it may look like.

"OOh, and the current UAL livery is 12 years old. It was unvailed in a commercial for during the Super Bowl."

These are incorrect statements. The current UA livery was unveiled January 11, 1993 (11 years ago) on a 744 flight leaving SFO at 11:45A bound for NRT (not during the Super Bowl, which incidentally was January 31, 1993).
