Schweigend recommended that we start a new thread to eliminate post-merger confusion and I agree...

The old thread can be found at:

Based on the lighting, backdrop, and reflection, I'd say it's a Photoshop job on a picture of a model, at that...

UA planes have 10 windows in zone 2 where this one has 11, also on UA planes the windows start right after door 2 and this one they dont.

So it's an innacurate model, lit with a single point of light against a very unconvincing backdrop... which could have either been painted prior to being photographed or photoshopped afterwords.

Either way, the image SCREAMS model.

Boeing 777 -224 29859 227 N79011 Continental Airlines at HKG 25oct10 with United titles

So N79011 has been for a face lift - one to keep an eye out for now!

Service to/from EWR by own metal only.

Out of curiosity, I wanted to see if one of the 744's was out of service, which could indicate a trip to the paint shop.

Per flightaware, the following planes are actively flying, so I guess it can't be them:

171 - ORD-NRT
173 - SFO-FRA
174 - MEL-SYD
175 - SFO-PEK
177 - SFO-PVG
178 - SFO-NRT
179 - SFO-ICN
180 - LAX-SYD
181 - NRT-TPE
182 - PVG-SFO
194 - ORD-SFO
197 - HKG-ORD
199 - PEK-SFO
104 - TPE-NRT
105 - NRT-ORD
107 - LAX-SYD
116 - SFO-HKG
117 - FRA-SFO
119 - SFO-SYD
121 - SIN-HKG
122 - SFO-SYD
127 - SGN-HKG
128 - ORD-HKG

Possible suspects:

118 - SFO-HKG - Friday October 22
120 - SFO-PEK - Friday October 22

So its possible that either 118 or 120 is having maintenance or a paint job.

Because the airplane has United titles on it but is operated by Continental it has to say that on the aircraft somwhere. Basically CO just put Operated by and the certificate number for CO on the tail.

Ok, I would call myself a UNITED LOVER and a CONTINENTAL LIKER. Also I am a graphic designer and I'm a Creative Director: point is I am EXTREMELY PASSIONATE about all this. I need to express my "opinion" here. I LOVE UNITED's PENTAGRAM's livery. I was never that impressed with CONTINENTAL's livery.
But I will admit that this COMPUTER GENERATED IMAGE of the new UNITED 747, is BEAUTIFUL, CLASSY and even SOPHISTICATED !!! If i saw her parked at NRT etc I'd be proud!

252 FL787 : By 2013, I meant that by January 1st, 2013 all 777s should be reconfigured. Nothing has changed as far as I know, I just changed the wording.
