I'd post the link to the .jpg file but it's on a tripod site and tripod fixed it where you can't link photos to external sites. But go to the above site and scroll down to the 4th image.
BTW, the first image on the above page shows how Central's final livery would have looked on some DC-9's they had ordered. Unfortunately, Frontier merged with Central before the planes were actually delivered and they never flew with that livery.

Another reason for such similarities can be that one airline has aircraft on wetlease from another. Quite often all that is replaced in the livery is the name of the airline, all other things (sometimes even logos) are kept.

fanofjets - the reason why the similarity of the JAS A300 and Airbus house colours is because JAS asked that it's aircraft be delived in that scheme because they liked it. So it's really the same scheme.

I am surprised that nobody has mentioned US Airways and United. Stephen Wolfe went to UA, changed from white livery to gray, then went to USAir, made it US Airways and did the UA liveryy witht the colors reversed.
