New this week, we get a few Shuttle America flights operating for Usairways Express operating in here. Normally they've been wearing the US Express livery, but now as part of the transition to be a United Express operator, several Saab 340's have been painted in the new United livery, minus any titles.
They are still flying for Usairways Express, until June when Shuttle America takes over some ACA turboprop routes out of IAD for UAX. It looks like by September or so Shuttle America will virtually no longer be flying for Usairways Express, almost exclusively UAX, also dependent on how the PIT reductions shape up.

Last I knew, only 2 of Shuttle America's SF-340's had been painted into the 'almost' United Express new colors. One of the reasons the plane was not finished in full colors was that UAL had not yet come up with a blueprint lay out for the turboprops yet.....See the post on the 'new' UAL Dash-8. Both aircraft where painted the same week.
