Wasnt it always similar to CO's? Or are you referring to the font of "Copa Airlines"?

So that's what lowercase letters look like in the new UA font!

Looks better, but I don't like the lower case at all.

Copa was pretty much a subsidiary of CO pre merger, so I would be highly surprised to see them move away from COUA. I would say no surprise that they are revising their logo to be similar to the new merged airline.

well years ago CO had still a big bunch of stocks in CM... any chance to see flights to the "other" UA hubs were they still do not have flights (CM) SFO, DEN?

Funny, I was asking myself how the UA/CO merger would affect COPA today. I think the font looks fine, but it's not the same as the UNITED one. The new UA one is sans-seriff..

Not sure if they'll make it that far. More than likely would be a UA 757.

I prefer it to the previous font, though their Star Alliance 738 could stand to benefit from some color.

They could with a nice stopover at GUA hehe.

We talked about the font change at the CentAm thread, but I do hope that they paint a E190 in *A colors.



nice and spacious airports in need of new airlines and flights... GUA or FRS anyone?... anyone at all?

CO sold all of their stock in CM in 2008.

There are four types of sans-serif fonts: Grotesque, Neo-Grotesque, Geometric, and Humanist. AA's Helvetica is a neo-grotesque, while DL's Whitney would probably be categorized as humanist. Not sure what category the UA font would be.

CO sold all of their stock in CM in 2008.

And the cash came very handy at that time. The CO-owned stock accounted for 49% of the company.
Had CO issues when CM logo changed, looked like theirs and has been kept for this long?
Does UA now has issues with the new font?
If CM wants to show they've an affinity with UA (CO then) and UA is fine with that, let it be.
Hadn't CM and CO (now UA) kept a friendly relationship until now, UA could have taken CM to court for trademark infringement long time ago.



I'm not on CM's payroll.

CM likely uses elements of CO (now UA's) identity with a license that permits its unrestricted use provided UA and CM retain some type of marketing relationship. The ownership interest is irrelevant at this point because it no longer exists.

I know that. But their commercial partnership/relationship was such that in the mind of the travelling public, they were joined at the hip.

It might just be me, but the letters "p" and "r" have little curvies.

The new UA font does not look like Helvetica.. I'm thinking it's one of those slightly-modified fonts that many airlines order.

If Copa's 737's can fly from PTY to the like of GRU, GIG, EZE, and MVD non-stop, they sure as hell would be able to do SFO non-stop, but not likely points further such as SEA/PDX.
