So this is the first wide body in the 'new' UA colors! Meh. It's okay. Waiting for a completely new, fresh look! *cough cough*

How can you paint such a beautiful aircraft in these horrible colours?

Uhw Bah! That's looking awful! Agree, nice picture, really nasty livery! The letters are really too much separated.

The United titles look much better on widebodies then the smaller aircraft, but still not the best looking scheme. Nice shot though!!

Eurowhite is alive and well in America! Just to add to the plainness (no pun intended) there is a splash of battle ship grey. As our Dutch friend said, it's a copy and paste job and it looks like a 90s scheme - not good.

I love the pic. But this has put a bind on the employees my aunt and uncle work for them buying planes and they are cutting jobs. Yet i love to see change i will miss the continental name on the planes. Love the pic though 5 stars!

I have always liked the Continental livery, clean and profesional looking, however, the way they have just "thrown" the word United on the aircraft really looks bad. Absolutely no thought has gone into it. Very, very poor job just to get it done.

Of course it's cut and paste, seriously people. This isn't NEW, it's just Uniteds name with everything else Continental. Of course it's old and 1990's it's from 1991!

That is the worst paint scheme I have ever seen.

(Standing in front of the angry mob): I don't think that livery looks that bad. I liked Continental better, but this one is an okay solution to a huge problem.

Great photo! However, their livery looks like United wet leased the 777 from Continental. Bad move...!

Good capture but I'm not a fan of this livery on the 777. The letters look way too big for the plane.

I hope this livery is provisional, while both together design the final one.

Not a nice colour sheme, but nice wingflex and I have to say it looks a little bit better on the T7 than on the smaller ones like the 738!
Interesting that the US flag is proportionally much smaller on this a/c...

Oh my god. It looked horrible on the 737, even worse on the 757, and now this! How was they thinking?

United want to reduce paint cost, I suppose. Who is their marketing manager? What is differant between continental and M&A?

Nice picture, but.. ehh... livery is some old fashioned for United. It was good for Continental. But comaring to the original blue, United Colors, well.. some old fashioned livery.

So you all say that this livery is ugly. Now tell me which American airline has a beautiful livery? Not one. They are all ugly!

Imagine how much money they are going to waste for THIS by repainting all the united aircraft.

Terrible. United had one of the greatest liveries. You can thank the arrogant pride of Continental for this result. Bring back the United livery or scrap it all and start from scratch!

Its a pity what they have done, mixing up these to liverys in a awful way... i used to like the CO livery but it simply doesnt fit with the word United

Very ugly livery ! The United/Continental merger deserves a new and modern livery, in respect of the great past of these two great airlines.

Good capture! I have to disagree with the majority here; I was always a fan of Continental's scheme, and I'm glad they've kept it more or less intact. The changed font takes a little getting used to, but I like it. I can't wait to see a 747-400 wearing these colours!

Even though it says (UNITED), it looks more like (CARGO)!

Oh no! The 777's are becoming infected with the new livery. Why couldn't they have kept the United livery and change "UNITED" to "CONTINENTAL" in the Continental font. That would've looked spectacular.
p.s. Nice Capture.

Merger can be bad, in terms of livery change, and this is what happen if you just cut and paste..no kind of texture changes at all...pure cut and paste...2*

Photo is great, but the livery is really terrible! it has ruined both the previous UA and CO liveries!
Anonymous

Nice shot! Both the CO and UA are mediocre (so much blue on UA was overkill). I just want to see this on the 747s and hopefully a nice, creative NON-BLUE livery will come out! but that'll be too good to be true

I think it looks nice. United's old livery was way too blue. P.S. Please don't ruin Continental, United!

No one said anything against the Continental livery. Here we are. It's a mixture between both liveries, and, in my opinion, it was successful. Looks seriously! I think it's a great shot as well!
And P.S: To all who hate this livery, then you didn't see that Finnair livery before!

I just think that the last United livery prior to the merger was so beautiful it makes this look like crap.
