Re: United Airlines "Evolution" to Globe Livery coming in April

Not impressed . Nothing that different from the current ..I still see continental when I look at it. AA got it right when they introduced their livery . They kept nothing from either carrier . Introduced an entirely new brand wether you loved it or hated it .
