It seems to me that they're painting the Express planes faster than the mainline. I'm pretty sure it's because they're getting new regional airlines to fly for Express. Besides 733, 752 & 772, are there any other mainline aircraft in the new colors?

I believe the reason why more Express aircraft are getting painted is because these are the new RJ orders that are just now being delivered. Might as well deliver them in new colors than have to repaint them later.

Is it just me, or that an ugly mo-fo of a plane? I didn't realize how long and pointy that nose is? Argh.. I like it all except for the nose, it's atrocious. And it just seems a little "skinny" for as long as it is. Anyway.. just my thoughts. Though the new c/s looks great on this little plane...

I saw the ERJ in person yesterday at IAD. The sleek look of the ERJ really does not match the new scheme from UA in my opinion. It looks like a charter scheme gone horribly wrong lol. I like the new scheme on the larger planes like the 37, 57, and T7 tho.
Just my opinion, wait till you see some clear photos pop up.

I think the tail of the SAAB is incomplete... on the 737 and ERJ they have extended the blue and the U (officially known now as the "United sweep") to the dorsal "leading edge wedge"... but haven't yet on the SF340.
