As nice as the green was, I think the blue brings the livery into the 21st century. Sure the old USAir, CO, and UA color schemes were beautiful, but they simply needed updating. This does it while retaining the feel of the old scheme.
Great luck with the new airplanes and welcome to a great chance at democracy and a (free) economy.
How long ago did they order it? Is there a backlog of CRJs or can airlines get them faster than A/B aircraft? Just curious. I've read in here not so many kind words regarding the CRJs so I wonder if there's a lot of demand for new builds.
I've flown CR2s and CR7s and they were always quite pleasant (although the low windows on the CR2 make looking out a bit challenging!).
Livery is quite a disappointment, they also made another mistake, Iraqi should have been in English near cockpit windows and in Arabic on the other side, that was the whole idea behind this on the previous livery.
