Fantasy United Airlines Scheme

Fri Feb 01, 2002 7:16 am

Looking a little different...United, Enjoy.

P.S. The top half of the fusulage came out a little lighter then what it looked in the software I use. It should be a matalic silver. No white is used.

I have to say that I really like those colors you used a lot!! Why is it, it seems to me, that us aviation enthusiasts can come up with better schemes than the airlines themselves? Just look at Air Orange, his work is outstanding.

Umm... it sure is different. I like how it is anything but EuroWhite, but I really like United's blue scheme, instead of the black. If you changed the black to blue, it would look really neat. Also, could you use their new typeface? The one that isn't serifed, but looks more like Arial than Times New Roman...

I wanted to stay clear from blue this time, not that I don't like it or anything, but because there are just so many different airlines that use blue in their scheme these days. The black really makes the orange and red stripe really pop out, and against the matalic silver, is very sleek.

I tried about 30 different fonts for the title, however but settled on the one seen. I think the serifs come accross more business like, but that's just me.

Now I understand the reasons for your choices! I agree with you on both.

Really nice! UA should definitely change their present scheme. It is ugly.

Nice color scheme. But no one's commented about the A330 -- where did that come from? Did I miss UA adding a new a/c type to their fleet?

Honestly, I don't really like having a red-orange strips on the fantasy scheme. It looks weird having light and dark colour on the same jet.

Sptv,
It isn't an A330. It is a 767-300.

Anyway, I like it too, but I agree that it should be blue instead of black. Other than that, I think it is really sharp.

Any chance we might be able to see what it would look like if it were blue?

Is the A330 below the fantasy-sheme a fake? Or did they really tested a A330 in their current sheme? i never heard about it. The fantasy sheme is an Interresting approach but looks a little bit as Lufthansa owns united. I mean the stripes represents the banner of the federal republic of germany-just in reversed order

The A330 below the fantasy scheme is also a fake. That was created at the time when United was in serious talks to buy US Airways, and everyone wanted to know what a United A330 would look like.

Once again, the main reason for black was to stay away from the blue Think of how many airlines just in the United States alone that blue is featured. US Airways, Delta, Continental, American, Southwest, Northwest, Alaska... If I changed the black to blue, how different would it look from it's current scheme? The stripes are larger, but still orange and red. The fusulage is matalic silver instead of gray. The only real difference would be the tail and engines if it were blue.

I'm not crazy about black being used with light colors like that.

I like the present United scheme a lot right now.
