United Express/Atlantic Coast is getting ready to retire their J32 fleet. The last revenue flight will be on 03Dec01. To the best of my knowledge, these are, and will be the last planes to be operating in the old livery of United/United Express. God speed, you "Super 31s".

THANK GOD!!! I hate the junkstreams. They just feel completely unstable in flight. Ever been on one in turbulence? I completely avoided UAX out of IAD for the very reason that I might end up on a Junkstream.

I flew on a United Express J31 ten years ago from Syracuse NY to Washington Dulles, United's hub on the East Coast. I don't remember going through any turbulence, I had quite a smooth flight. I do remember that the aircraft didn't have a bathroom or a galley, no flight attendant.
The last time I saw a United aircraft in the old colours was two years ago at Chicago O'Hare. It was a United Express aircraft, I don't remember what type it was, the whole mainline fleet was already repainted in the new colours.
