Re: United Airlines "Evolution" to Globe Livery released

I like it. It’s not exciting but I think it looks fresh and smart. I really like the gradient on the tail and the slogan near the nose.
Very pleased they dumped the gold which a I thought was very dated and didn’t fit with any other branding elements they use.
