Re: United Airlines "Evolution" to Globe Livery released

I suppose you’re right, impilot. I guess it has an LCC-feel to me. It just doesn’t look like a global carrier livery to me. I guess I’ll just stick with “meh.”

Re: United Airlines "Evolution" to Globe Livery released

My overall reaction is, “meh.” With our recent downgrades to our Polaris product and our widely disliked new uniform design, I think this is the best livery I could have expected from our big, muddling airline. I’m not sure how much we’re paying PriestmanGoode fo...

Re: UA Adds MAX Routes to Hawaii

“Raft of the Medusa” I had to google. Aptivaboy, that reference is freakin’ awesome! I have to add that to “go pound sand.” I’d never seen that phrase before reading some angry back-and-forth on this fine website.

The 737-900ER is perfectly labeled “Raft of the Medusa.” Thank you!
