Whay About CO express?



Continental Express and Continental Connection don't have a lot to do -- simply a new name sticker on the fuselage, yes?

I would assume that existing United Express aircraft will be painted into the post-merger livery over time.

All Continental Express/Connection aircraft will most likely receive the same treatment as Continental Mainline aircraft, simply needing the logo repainted.

I am curious if all regional aircraft will be branded as "United Express" (like United currently has it), or if turboprop flights will be branded as "United Connection" (as Continental currently has it). Logic says it'll be "Express" across the board, but who knows.

Too bad they aren't keeping the current UA livery for the sole reason that I'd love to see a Beech 1900 in the current UA livery.



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

I'm sure there is a story (which I don't know) but Great Lakes Aviation is using the airframes formerly in UAX livery out west.

Simple enough: Great Lakes operated as United Express from the early 1990s until 2002, when United downgraded its relationship with ZK to just a codeshare agreement.

Some photos of Great Lakes during its heydey as a United Express carrier:

During this time, the company was headquartered in Spencer, Iowa and flew primarily out of ORD. Their downgrade to codeshare came about the same time that ZK migrated most of its operations out of DEN and relocated headquarters to Cheyenne.

JBo,

You appear to have missed the point.

The original comment was specifically about the Great Lakes B1900D's and that they might look good in the newest blue-and-white UAX livery.

But you remind me that YV also flew the 1900C since you included a few photos of those in your comments.

KGAI, perhaps I misread your original post, then, for when I read:

Quoting kgaiflyer (Reply 3):

I read that as you didn't know the reason why Great Lakes was operating aircraft formerly in UAX colors (which, after looking more closely, your first picture is indeed a UAX bird ... thought it was one that had UA colors with ZK titles).

And you are correct, YV did fly both the C and the D. Also, some of these aircraft came into ZK's posession over time, but retained the YV tail number. (The photos I posted were all listed as being operated by ZK, how accurate that is remains unknown).

As for why I, personally, would like to see the 1900D in the current UA livery ... just to see how it looks. I did work for Skyway for almost 4 years turning Beech flights, so I have a bit of a soft spot for the aircraft.

Yes not a lot to do at all. Change the name, it is not a sticker - it is painted - still easy fix!

United Express and United Connection sounds like two completely different products even though the functions are the same. Also United Connection, in my opinion, sounds like a lower class operation compared to United Express. I think UA/CO should keep it simple and brand all of the regional operations as United Express.

I feel the same way about "Continental Express" and "Continental Connection" ... although, originally, all things COEx were ExpressJet which used to be wholly owned, and so all CoCo routes were third party contracts.

Which is the case with American ... American Eagle is wholly owned, while American Connection is third-party contract (former TWExpress carriers).

For simplicity, the new UA should keep United Express across the board.

I actually posted this picture over in the "Aviation Hobby" section, but if you want to see a B1900 in the new UA livery, here you go (gotta love Flight Simulator).

Looks nice.

I think this thread has now come full-circle.
