It seems that there is not uniformity in the new Delta livery with the connection carriers. If you look at the blue belly of the ERJ-145s, you can tell that N14179's blue belly goes higher on the aircraft than N14177. Is this normal?
Also looks as if the Globe on the tail is different as well. Could be just the photo difference in both, but it appears to me that the Gold on N33132 is more vibrant. Also the blue on the looks darker in said picture as well.

That's probably more a result of the differences between lighting conditions in the 2 shots than the actual livery, IMO.

Quoting OB1504 (Reply 18): So, then, which one is the correct one? I'm really hoping that it's the variation on N14179
That's what I am wondering also. I'm fairly certain that the correct one is N14179 because the Freedom ones that have been painted resemble 179. However, the recently painted CRJs for Comair have a very low blue belly. I guess time will tell.
It seems like this is a significant difference. From one plane to another, it does not look that much different, however, if these two planes were parked next to each other, it would be quite noticeable.

Quoting Georgebush (Reply 20): Could someone please explain the differences between the two ERJ's?? I cant see any difference.
The bottom ERJ, N14179, has blue which extends above the wing section of the plane, while N14177 has more white and less blue. I personally like N14177 better, but I'm sure most people will disagree with me.
Quoting LGA777 (Reply 15): My photos may not be good enough for this site (this time around) but 627 was in LGA a few days ago in the new scheme, ironically about 2 hours behind 638.
Quoting 767-332ER (Reply 16): I saw N627DL leaving ATL today around 4-5pm hour. I believe she left from A14.
Good to know. People weren't mistaken then. Can't wait to see more planes in the fleet.

Then again, that may have to do with the fact that it's a different aircraft. If the higher blue belly is appearing on the Freedom ERJs, then I guess that's what they've chosen to go with.
Which was painted first: 177 or 179? They may have decided that 177 didn't look too good and tried something a little different with 179, which stuck.
