I know I'm probably in the minority on this, but I think the wave looks sharp.
I don't think that's a minority opinion, most people I know like it.
It should be noted that this is not the same wave on the 787, that is a subtle wave compared to this which is more obvious and in your face. The biggest difference is that on the 787, it goes all the way up to the tip of the nose. On the MAX, it goes up to just aft of the radome and the curve itself is much more pronounced highlighting the "smile effect" much more than on the 787. It is actually really cool because it uses subliminal messaging to make pax smile unconsciously when looking at it because smiling is contagious. So when people see the UA signs advertising the friendly skies with the iconic smile, its familiar to the pax and is instantly associated with UA.
I would give whoever came up with this insanely clever idea a raise.
Great point. That smile makes sense. So this makes me wonder.. Will the introduction of the MAX also be the starting point for an updated livery for the rest of the fleet? Makes no sense with the 77W’s lacking such change financial wise.
