Whoa. That was kinda surreal. Of course, only the bottom is the same. On UAL, the engines are all blue. So really, it's only the concept of a blue to white fade in stripes that is copied.

That picture must have been brought up a hundred times during the course of all the new UA scheme discussions.

Perhaps, UAL decided to take the old United Shuttle scheme and jazzed it up a bit.

Perhaps Pentagram designed a new livery from the ground up, using old, familiar elements of airline schemes yet giving it a modern twist? Big grin


Well that's what they did.
