As of right now, it looks like the globe is probably staying, and will only be modified a bit.

I knew something was different, but wasn't sure what! I quite like the new globe, it is a lot more modern.

Given that the globe as the basic brand icon is largely staying, how exactly are they losing the last element of Continental.

As the other posted said, IAH is the 2nd largest hub, and EWR also is continuing to be built up and is very much seen as their East Coast Int'l gateway, now getting the 78J.

The idea that UA is treating the CO half of their history poorly is just not correct in my mind.


Its no different than all the other mergers. Houston still has a sizeable UA corporate office in downtown Houston. While its nowhere near the size of the old CO corporate presence, the Houston office is still reasonably large. This is no different than Minneapolis (NW) or Phoenix (HP) which both lost their legacy branding and corporate headquarters. But like Houston, Minneapolis and Phoenix still have sizeable corporate offices.

Guess all the recent investments that UA has made to the IAH hub, such as the rebanking, new routes-domestic and international, Terminal C North, and the that new Maintenance hangar for wide bodies count for nothing... :sarcastic: :sarcastic:

My prediction: It'll be the United Charter livery with an all white globe on the tail (no gold), no grey belly, and billboard United titles (minus the 'charter' titles of course). It looks different and 'fresh' enough to be described as an 'evolution' while at the same time ensuring that almost all of the existing branding can be kept. In fact, this livery would fit even better with the rest of the branding IMO.

I hope I'm wrong and they instead go with a more interesting clean-sheet design, but the pessimistic side of me thinks that this safe, inoffensive, and cost effective scheme is the most likely option.

Not by the time they merged though. They already ditched free meals and you had to pay for DirecTV by 2010. CO's financials too were a bit, well, sketchy as they had a ton of debt to pay back for all the new planes they got in the late 1990s/early 2000s.

This is a long time coming, but the fact that there is no gold means this is going to be something significant. It probably will involve the "U" and the "Globe" as a combo, probably look like a volleyball. I do like the colors though, straight out of the 1980s.

That was a one-off livery after N194UA was leased for a period of time to Atlas Air, and never repainted into United colors. Instead, the Atlas logo was painted over and the "United Charter" titles applied. It's not any sort of United-branded design.

Regarding the Houston HQ, they still maintain a large building in downtown Houston that basically acts as a 2nd HQ. They have literally thousands of employees there...

Thanks, I didn't know it was just a painted-over Atlas scheme. I could still picture the upcoming 'evolution' of the scheme being something very similar though- white fuselages with colored tail swoops seem to be in vogue these days.

Throw the tulip and “worldwide service” back on the nose. Wouldn’t distract from the core brand and could be a little nod to those who hate that they ditched the “U.”

Look at their newly relaunched app for clues: the color purple is quite prevalent. It's also the color of their new EP seat. I think we'll see purple being added to the tail colors with a refined design. Perhaps also added to the UNITED titles and "swoosh" line.

From a brand differentiation perspective I think it is important that they add purple to the livery somehow, such as the swooshy cheat line. If they can incorporate purple in their core brand then they would effectively 'own' the color whereas at the moment it looks like a 'me too' rip off Delta.

What's interesting is that both airlines almost simultaneously introduced purple, a color with no relevance at all to their brands at that point. Those focus groups must have shown that people really, really like purple!

I think I've seen this one before. The tulip and the globe are two things that aren't going to mix well, slapping two logos on top of each other just doesn't work.

If the guidelines for the women's art contest are an indicator, looks like bigger font U N I T E D on the fuselage with a tail design already picked out. Hope it's not another lame eurowhite w/ tail stripes me-too-ism a la Aer Lingus/Lufthansa.

Perhaps the globe is modified with square dots, as in some of the Polaris serve and glassware. Indeed, introducing the “pixel” concept would allow its easy application in a multitude of colors— like a mosaic.

United launched -- yesterday 07Mar -- a new corporate travel focused website and initiative ... featuring the logo and brand items. This is the web-site. I doubt there are many changes to come to United's branding or livery. In fact this looks even MORE dated. The initiative showed business cards, pens, digital app, web-site and such all with this branding.

See https://www.united.business/


I think this could be a preview of the overall brand refresh the company is alluding to. If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of that home page, you could see what the new color scheme might look like: kind of a royal-ish blue background offset with some navy boxes. All the text and the logo is white with some light blue icons and purple buttons/boxes. The globe in the logo at the top is updated/refreshed as well, as someone else on this thread pointed out. There is no gold or yellow anywhere.

I actually quite like this and find it very modern and clean. The typeface appears to be Arial or some variation thereof, and I think the varying shades of dark blue offset with light blue, white, and a touch of purple, is a HUGE improvement from the dated look of so much of their media now.

Although I foresee something similar to the color pallette for the tail, kina like the aurora borealis with some stars (Polaris branding) over Earth (the globe).

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but the current livery looks best on the E145. The express titles really fill the space nicely. Hopefully this evolution will look equally as good on the little guys.

Of course employees are hearing lots of rumors. Key decisions and final designs are of course tightly under wraps. However, there are some themes across the multiple "leaks."

1. The globe will continue to be used. The globe stands for United being a leader amongst global airlines and therefore there is no interest in casting it aside. The globe will remain on the tail. The globe will be updated and "modernized." The gold and white will be dropped and the new globe will be in shades of blue to depict depth and dimension. This is consistent with the globe used in the Polaris cabin. [This would look pretty sharp.]

2. The Tulip will return in limited use. Somewhat similar to AA's bold tail and flight symbol but UA will use the globe as a "design element" -- e.g., tail, cabin, catering service ware, accent walls in terminal/lounges/gate areas -- and the Tulip will be used selectively as a logo -- e.g., next to the United name. [This one seems sketchy to me.]

3. Gold will be dropped.

4. Select colors from the new palette *may* be used, e.g., in the Tulip, the cheatline, etc, but more likely incorporated into things that can be easily switched out over time, e.g., menus in Polaris, cocktail napkins, advertising, etc -- i.e., not as expensive as a new livery.

5. The cheatline will be consistent across the fleet and consistent with the 787 and Max.

6. The objective is to move away from the half United half Continental branding and create a more unique United branding for the future without a comprehensive re-branding effort -- i.e., "our airline."

7. Most people prefer a tweak and modernization.

Again, the above is just a synthesis of current rumors. Time will tell.


Referring to your points:

1. Fine by me but it needed updating years ago. People call it the "Disco Ball" for a reason.

2. This, should have been considered since the beginning of the merger but Smisek was way too arrogant to do so. AA/US and DL/NW both did this on the tail to represent the carrier that doesn't exist anymore. Yet many viewed not keeping the "U" was some sort of a hostile corporate takeover by CO (in some ways it was.)

3. Makes sense as it's not evident anywhere in the new uniforms.

4. Also makes sense as a "secret logo" and Polaris already has it's own logo as well.

5. OK cool.

6. Yeah, that's like common sense at this point. "Merger of Equals" was a stupid strategy and didn't work out. They got more serious about this after the PR disasters back in 2017.

7. I'd say if the above happens it's more than just a tweak and many are ready for it.

Well, okay -- United is about to lose the last element of Continental Airlines that existed. They ditched the Houston headquarters and downsized the hub. So what's left for anyone in Houston to show loyalty to?



I don’t know......how about just being loyal to United the largest airline in Houston?

Fake news. This was uploaded to the Modified Airliners site back in 2012.
Careful, doors are closing, and will not reopen. Please wait for the next train.

Maybe to replace the battleship gray livery. This just screams early 2000s to me. Would have looked nice next to Delta’s wavey gravy livery!

MAX’d out on MAX threads. If you are starting a thread, and it’s about the MAX - stop. There’s already a thread that covers it.

Because no one associated with the CO side of the company that experienced the Lorenzo days ever wants to see that logo again.

Why not move forward and not backwards? I’d think the last thing this airline needs is reopening old wounds.
