I've heard rumors that UAL may be changing their livery - again. Anyone else heard anything? Apparently they want to simplify their design a la Delta's new Euro-white look. I'd assume that the new livery would be in line with their new blue/gray/white look. Comments?

I liked the UA livery when it was unveiled for the first time. It was a vast improvement over the white, blue
orange 70's thing they had going and I like that they
have retained the "U". The current livery is a little on
the fussy side though and they don't use the titles
on the fuselage anymore, having opted for UNITED in
boldface type on tickets and all signage. I think they
could update it a little but I hope they don't go for
a white body design like LH or DL. That's way too
common nowadays and UA has a lot of colors in its
logo that are worth keeping. However, given their
perennial labor issues and shrinking market share,
I would focus on resolving the labor issues first,
dropping US Airways as a merger partner, and
getting its house in order first.

Ok. UAL is not trying to copy some other airline's livery. They are trying to get their own original look. Don't forget that United led the way is using dark colors as the primary color on the fuselage, and thet was later followed by US Air. Both of these airlines have spent lots of money on their new looks recently (less that 10 yrs.) and so they will not be changing their livery anytime soon. But it does not hurt to dream...right?
