This plane in this condition spoils the UA brand and the 757 plane, which is one of the best looking planes ever built in my view.

A visitor from Cyprus posted Mon November 7, 2011:
It looks scary to fly with these plane. Too sad for United airlines to let these plane in these horrible condition.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 30, 2011:
I wonder how old is this aircraft!

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 25, 2011:
Thank god it's repainted! You can actually see where they put the jet bridge!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat February 19, 2011:
Rolled out of the paintshop yesterday, with its "new" paintjob

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 11, 2011:
Its beautiful!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu February 3, 2011:
This is a shame, but anyhow, as UA is giving all its birds a new paintjob now, lets hope this one will be the very next!

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 20, 2011:
Where's a "bird bath" when you need one??

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri January 14, 2011:
Seriously yanks, what are you doing to your planes?
Scrapped planes have better paintjob than this one

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 30, 2010:
Actually there are several pictures of this plane looking shabby prior to this shot. C'mon UA!

A visitor from Jordan posted Mon August 30, 2010:
It being a bit dirty is just the start, you cannot even read the titles anymore.

6 is is not that long for paint to be on an aircraft, they must have use some cheap stuff and had some acid rain with it.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue August 17, 2010:
No benefit of the doubt required - it's a revenue passenger flight from SJC. Aircraft paint sometimes gets like that. It doesn't have to be going to maintenance, storage or anywhere else to have a crappy paint job.
UAL - paint your aircraft! It's simple - white and grey body, gold cheatline, blue tail with golden globe and the word U N I T E D on the side!

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 17, 2010:
One dirty aircraft and all of a sudden united airlines is a horrible airline??

I actually think it looks good, its shows how hard this aircraft has been working and how many places it's flown.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 16, 2010:
Holy @#$% Thats one dirty 75

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 15, 2010:
Folks, let's be realistic here. There is simply no way that UAL would allow this to be put in service in this condition. It simply is beyond reality. I have to agree that this aircraft must be on its way to refurbishment/painting or being parked. I doubt that there are any PAX on board. Let's give UAL a little benefit of the doubt on this one.

A visitor from Taiwan posted Sun July 25, 2010:
Eww so dirty....
bad maintenance and the gray color totally failed :/

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Wed June 30, 2010:
Speechless view.
Dirty, rough surfaces generates severe parasite drag.

Better give that thing a wash and save some fuel already!

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 20, 2010:
Probably the worst paint job in the fleet!

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 18, 2010:
Not going to the boneyard, PAX on board

A visitor from - posted Mon June 14, 2010:
She may have been on her way to the desert parking lot in California or Arizona, or perhaps, she's awaiting her new Continental-United livery. They can't be this sloppy, or... can they?

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 9, 2010:
I would have trouble boarding that aircraft. wow

A visitor from - posted Thu May 27, 2010:
It really made me think about how airplane are kept and maintained...

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 17, 2010:
Thank you!!! Tim Canavan! (Director of cleaning) Great job of keeping United aircraft clean. You have done Jimmy Crack Corn proud!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 6, 2010:
Wowsers. I guess this is the reason the UAUA stock fell by over a buck today...

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 3, 2010:
This airplane has been going places!

A visitor from - posted Sat May 1, 2010:
This picture should be part of Continental-United merger talks as an argument for retirement of United Airlines brand.

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 29, 2010:
It doesn't help that one of the windows appears to be boarded up with plywood.

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
WOW... words can't even begin... United Somalia Airlines?

A visitor from - posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Great Catch.. What did UA do? Pull this from out of the sand and press it into service?

A visitor from Panama posted Wed April 28, 2010:
YUCKY !
I think the next time this a/c will visit paintshop will be soon.

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Even air france look classy next to THAT thing

A visitor from - posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Ughh- United should be ashamed for not doing something about the state of the paint on this aircraft.

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
I agree with you Chris - it's the dirtiest aircraft I've seen in recent years too. It looks like it's been sitting out in the desert sun too long also...maybe it's been there? Mojave, Victorville maybe???

A visitor from Slovakia posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Poor plane... but great picture! *****

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Great shot! It's a shame that United is representing their airline like this.

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
You haven't seen anything unless you actually have flown with United recently. I take coast to coast monthly, and they can still amaze me - it appears that they have elliminated any semblance of cleaning services for good.

A visitor from - posted Wed April 28, 2010:
That is one dirty plane. picture is worth thousand words

A visitor from - posted Wed April 28, 2010:
YA has anyone seen a plane wash near bye

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Someone's up for a repaint...

A visitor from Canada posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Looks like it just went through a cloud of volcanic ash!

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
To have an aircraft in this condition is unacceptable. It's not even an Air France aircraft!

A visitor from Australia posted Wed April 28, 2010:
I think it is waiting to go to the paint shop, so they don't wash it.

A visitor from - posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Ah Ah Ah Ah ! American always critize Air France but just look at this plane !! Great shot Chris !

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
United should be ashamed.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Wow! Great Shot! But surely, As a leading Airline; it should want to represent their Airline on the Outside of the Aircraft aswell as the inside Cabin! (:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Ex-Victorville?

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
I disagree, not dirty, but in desperate need of a paint job. That is about 6 years worth of flying on that paint. Flying through some heavy weather too.

A visitor from France posted Wed April 28, 2010:
More dirty than Air France!

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Thats truly a disgrace...

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
That is a disgraceful condition for any AC to be in, let alone a major legacy carrier. It looks like ready for the scrap heap. Nice catch!

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Thanks for the shot... it's disappointing to see United's fleet in such terrible condition though. Seriously, this thing looks like it's done 25 years in Africa.

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 28, 2010:
Shame....CO is considering a merger with UA and CO has flawless looking a/c and UA has this. Run CO run!!!
