I'd like the new one if it had al little red in it.. The old really did have a neat look to it. I'll miss it!

The old...

...Has a decidedly classier look IMO, and is as much up-to-date in appearence today as it was when unveiled more than 10 years ago.

I don't care for the new colors at all. It looks like a "sketch" instead of a finished product.

They wanted to convey an entirely new image - but I think they've cheapened their own look instead of enhancing it.

I don't like the little red logo in the new scheme, blue would have fit better! Otherwise the new one is nice!

New livery looks good - I've gotten used to seeing the old one around since it's been there for a long time, but both have good and bad qualities. One isn't better than the other, they are just completely different designs.

I agree with what A330Fan1 said. I like the new scheme, but the old one is alright.

While I'm warming up to the new scheme, I'll always love the old one.

I love the old one better but I'm sure in due time the new one will grow on me.

I have to say the new. If you see it up close it would grow on you.

I honestly do like the new color scheme, though it might look a bit better, IMHO, if they incorporated some red into the design other than just the small amount on the "U" logo.

My favorite part about the new look is the tail, which I think is just striking. The whole paint job is worlds away from the battleship grey, which I never really liked from the beginning. That scheme never grew on me where as I think this one has that potential indeed.


It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

My favorite part of the new C/S is that it brightens up the planes. The gray is very dreary, especially in a Midwest winter. The white and bright blues convey a happier cheerier image to me, which I like. Although I feel that the old scheme conveyed a more professional image. I vote for the new one.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
