Because we have no lives (whatsoever), ILUV767 and I came up with our ideal new United paint scheme.

It's alive!!!

Hmmm...I'll give it a thumbs-up; at least it's one of the better of the excruciatingly mediocre UA dream schemes I've seen lately. However, I think the (somewhat) venerable triple red-orange-blue cheatline should be incorporated somewhere. Overall, a nice job.

Here is my modified version.

Notice how the engine looks strange. The slanted color demarcation represents the "slant" motif in United's design elements. From the faint slant of the tulip to the faint slanted T, this slant represents United's progressive nature.

It incorporates two of the same "theory elements" behind Delta's new livery... the first being a solid nose (in this case, the solid grey of most of the fuselage), and the second being a partially painted engine to represent a key aspect of the airline's identity.

Re: the friendship stripe... it has been practically abandoned company wide on all identity materials. It's as good as gone. The friendship stripe now is, plain and simply, a black bar that United occasionally uses. (see united.com)

Ta da...

I like it! Nice work! (Referring to the first one)

However, I will always love the stars and bars livery of the 70s and the red/blue/orange of the 80s! Big grin

They look nice but get rid of that damm gray! Lets try some other colors. After all UAL already completely changed their complany colors with the last livery change, so they can do it again.

Landor was brilliant with its new bmi and Delta designs... those will become classic, you'll see.

Take the current scheme and replace "United Airlines" with U N I T E D, preceded by the flying U, then it will look awesome.

I think a nice arcing or slanted red line somewhere on the engines would balance the livery a bit more with the red on the tail in the first one, but overall, very classy design.

It still looks tacky. And you still can't see it at night (are you listening USAirways?). I'm with Richard, bring back the red, orange, and blue.

The current UA livery is among my all time favorites. The revisions featured on the first example would, IMO, improve the current livery for the following reasons: 1) UNITED titles in block, as shown, has become the style I see most often associated with UA. 2) My first thought for improving the current UA livery has been to use a lighter gray for the upper fuselage. 3) The return of the red/blue slanted "U" logo to the upper fuselage, forward of the titles, enhances the overall look.

It does not appear that your first (or second) version includes the red/orange/blue pinstripes at cabin floor level, separating the blue and gray areas of the fuselage. I would prefer to see these retained. One other preference of mine would be for the lower fuselage blue to be of a darker shade.

As for the second livery, would it not infringe on copyright laws in its resemblance to BD's former livery... (the thought that came to mind when I saw it -- don't actually know how copyright law works).

I prefer the second (sorry David).

I like the way (in the second one) that UNITED is a stark contrast to the blue, whereas the black on grey one looks not very good. I don't like the thing on the engines though, take the engine look from c/s #1 and it's almost there. The logo behind the logo on the tail should have the same type of gradient that is on the engine of c/s #1.

Maybe I might be able to try my hand at this in Photoshop... we'll see  Smile

I think UA should go with a logo similar to that one for the tail of the acft. I like the current livery, but I think to logo on the back nees to be a bit bigger.

33 Greg : These look like photo shop lessons. The current one is still the most elegant. Best leave it to professionals.
34 Post contains images MDL_777 : SFOintern: That thing with the gradient wasn't what I meant. Right now your design is evenly divided between blue and gray. What I meant was more blue
35 Srbmod : How about taking design #3, and flip-flop the gray and blue, and leave the tail the same as before. Have the engine nascelles the same as in #1 and ad
