was informed this was required so as contract ground service personnel could distinquish between the two fleets.
No its a legal requirement....every aircraft somewhere on it has to have either the name or certificate number of the operating airline painted on it. Its not an issue with mainline fleet usually but as the aircraft was already painted with United titles it had to have an identifier on it to ID
it as a CO
bird. Once SOC happened the CALA014A number could be removed. I wonder if they needed to paint operated by United or CALA014A onto the aircraft that still have CO

The information does not need to be removed because it is accurate. The surviving (single) operating certificate is the old Continental one.
The surviving certificate is the CO
one however I know that they did a name change at SOC. That may have changed the prefix....I'm not sure.
I know the voices in my head aren't real but sometimes their ideas are just awesome!!!
