I don't think we've had a US livery list in a while, and I was wondering the progress US has made.

What is the amount/percentage done? Or is it complete?

In New US Airways livery:

E190 - 25/25 - 100%
A319 - 74/93 - 79.6%
A320 - 62/70 - 88.6%
A321 - 9/34 - 26.5%
A333 - 9/9 - 100%
B733 - 27/27 - 100%
B734 - 40/40 - 100%
B757 - 37/37 - 100%
B767 - 10/10 - 100%

Total Mainline - 293/345 - 84.9%


Despite announcing the US/HP merger more than 1 year after UA's new livery, US is making far more progress.

.....fewer aircraft it can afford to pull out of service and send to the paint shop. It's no surprise that Tilton does not care about UA's corporate image & reputation by painting his fleet of 397 planes, but rather lining his pocketbook with green, all while bending over his 56,000 employees to the melody of Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue"

I just flew to PHX and back on US and I cannot figure out why so many of their A321's are not repainted when nearly every other type in their fleet is. Does anyone know?

A lot of the 321s you saw in the blue are East aircraft, and were received late enough that they don't require paint yet, so its pointless to pull them out of service when the side of the aircraft still says "US Airways" on the side of it.

Damn I was certainly lucky to get on one of those in new colours then for my recent CLT-LAX flight!

Have you seen them? It looks like the clear coat has come completely off most of them.

Also very few widebodies which take longer to strip and paint.

And all the wide bodies have the new livery.
