New Star Alliance Paint Scheme Question; When UA?

Fri May 02, 2003 5:50 am

I did a search and couldn't find this anywhere.

Does anyone know if UA will be repainting N653UA to match the new Star Alliance paint scheme? If so, when?

Off the subject, in 2001 I recall chatting with a UA JFK based mechanic who was on holiday at LHR. According to him, 653 is a mechanical nightmare. Supposedly that ship has had many problems over the years. Just thought some may find this interesting.

Thanks for the help.

I really think United Airlines have better things to do with their money than painting their aircraft for visual purposes only.

Maybe in a year or so.

On that issue: Does anybody have a rough figure of the cost involved in repainting an a/c with a special color scheme?
