The thing is I flew from ORD-BDL on UA1234 last night and couldn't remember number. I think it was N931UA, which according to pictures in the database - is not in new livery, although there is no recent pictures of it. One thing for certain, it was new livery and was a 500, not 300.

Quoting UAcsOKC (reply 6): Some of the 735s have a white top but are the old livery (Shuttle, actually).
the easiest ID of a 500 is to look at its nose gear doors, the 500s have "737-500" on the doors, the -300s have nothing.
