There have been strong internal and external rumors about an updated United paint scheme lately.
In conjunction with its exit from bankruptcy, and with the launch of Ted, United will reportedly finally be unifying its look.
I have heard of two versions: both will be just like Ted, except for the orange is replaced by "United Blue" and the Ted titles replaced with the U N I T E D titles of course.
However, some have told me they thought it would be billboard style, while others said it would be similar in size to the present United Airlines logotype.
I spent a few minutes modifying Ted pics to fit these two rumors.
Keeping in mind these are very crude representations, which is the lesser of two evils?
'Regular size' titles
Billboard style titles
Personally, I would prefer if United adopted billboard type titles.
And please, no posts about 'United cannot afford to do this, it is a dying airline'. New paint rollout has been proven as a way to freshen your image yet decrease expenses (using simpler paints), as long planes are not taken out of service just to repaint them.
Please keep discussion limited to the two paint scheme rumors.
