Uadc8contrail...a/c 9890 left AMA for ORD last night (the 18th). It went straight into the line today! Only ORD-spoke flying for the next few days, but it will start flying through DEN by Monday or Tuesday. Two other 737s are being painted now and should be done very soon.
It seems the 737s with a Shuttle livery (esp the white-top ones) are a high priority. I can't wait to see one, but I really want to see one of the 747s or 757s! I will pull up routings for the flights and post them soon.

I have a UA pilot in the fam (no I'm not trying to show off) but he said that it is very possible. All the 737's are going in for their e+ out fitting. While doing this it makes sense to paint them instead of pulling them out of the line 2 times. I was listening in on a media conf. call between the news and UA and they are only planning on painting 70 something of their jets this year. I think that his sighting of the 737 is an actual sighting and we should expect to see more in the near feature. (and yes I know people are giving me a hard time about not knowing how to spell but the spell checker on my comp. is a little messed up)

How much longer until we see a 744, a 757, a 763, or a 762 in the UA new colors. I can tell you this...the Airbus A320 and the Airbus A319 will look fantastic in the new UA colors...I already know it...they look good in just about any livery.

Word I had from a UA employee was that only 3 777s and 7 737s this year are scheduled for painting into the new colors. The A320s are heavily scheduled for painting into TED colors as that program expands. This is purely heresay, but the 72 planes that are scheduled to be in new colors by the end of 2004 are likely to include a lot of RJs for Air Wis, Skywest and TransStates.
My two cents,
ps-I like the colors and would love the Airbus' in new colors added to my slide collection

25 RayChuang: I wonder will we see any of those 737-300/500's that fly the SFO-LAX route painted into the new livery.
26 United_Fan: Any idea when we might see one in ROC ?
27 DIA: Aviator TJ: The 777 (new c/s) will be in Denver Feb. 21st. on a flight from ORD. Then, it'll fly on to IAD.
