"had UA adopted Rising Blue post-merger all we'd be reading here would be endless "bring back the globe!""

That is; perverse contrarianism.

Honestly this whole pile of tripe is the some of the most absurd griping I've ever seen and it has done more to sour my opinion of both the current United and its two immediate predecessors than pretty much anything else.

American and US merged and yet I don't see anywhere near the same amount of whinging about how the US brand was retired.
Delta and Northwest merged and yet I don't see anywhere near the same amount of whinging about how the NW brand was pretty much taken out the back of a hanger at ATL and shot.

And by the way, as an Australian who wouldn't have the faintest idea of UA's festering internal discord were it not for being a member here - I like where UA have taken the globe up to now. The current livery is professional and contemporary, and with a nice air of simplicity that lends elegance, and the United name means a lot more to me as a global airline than Continental did.

By comparison, I think Rising Blue was a terrible livery. Battleship was decent but didn't age well, both physically and in concept (especially the serif logotype), and the stripes-on-white business before that can be handed straight back to the '80s.

3) A blue dreamliner swoop across the whole fleet


Y'all do realize they could be using stock footage from 1990s or that video they did from 2010 on the 777 with UA/CO paint transition? I doubt they'd be so careless about getting this leaked by A.net

It's honestly pretty embarrassing over the years to realize it was never quite the globe I hated but rather how they've been using it, especially the gold. I'm glad the gold will be done away with in any case! Albeit the barebones livery rendered or the grey belly with the swoop I think I'll be fairly pleased with the result. United has definitely become a better airline and I'm glad they're doing a refresh to hopefully bring an "unofficial official" departure from their previous issues.

Exactly, as another foreigner (Germany) to UA's home turf, I can only second those thoughts. The Globe looks much more professional and befitting of an airline of global reach (not just an airline of global reach but the US' #1 airline by intercontinental destinations).
The boxed-in globe they use on boarding passes and other branding materials is very contemporary and stylish. If they indeed end up choosing the livery without the gold accents and adding a (light) blue swoop I can imagine it looking nice and fresh and ready to represent the recent substantial improvements in service.

As for the older liveries my opinions are the exact opposite, I found the rising blue rather nice but the Battleship grey is one of my least favorite altogether, especially in the way it aged.

Guys, if y’all look at the top of the reference image, it seems like the title of it starts with “CON.” I have a feeling this is stock footage when Continental first started painting their aircraft. Plus, I can see a hint of yellow on the tail fin.

Doesn't the globe seem larger there than the CO/UA current globe?

Honestly, if they keep using swoops like that in their hype videos it's got to be part of the livery. Lostsound's interpretation is classy and much better than what was previously posted on this thread as "the next livery." I'm keeping my fingers crossed and waiting in anticipation for Wednesday's announcement! So long as it's not just billboard titles with a colored in tail (a la LX), or the same but with the tail design draping down onto the fuselage (LH, IB, AZ, EI, AV, TS, on and on), we may all be pleasantly surprised.

There will be some purple somewhere in the livery as has been teased by United... possibly on the winglets!

It could also be CONFIDENTIAL, as another poster has already noted. In my experience with those sorts of charts the title is usually in one of the lower corners.

Oh yeah, I don't think anybody could possibly argue that Battleship held up well. But for the first couple of days after it had been painted I liked it :lol:

Look at the very beginning of the video at 0:00. You can see an opaque tarp over the left engine. Above that, you can see the first letter of the title. That letter looks more like a "U" than a "C".

Not too sold on the purple yet but definitely like the light blue and I can imagine the purple growing on me, at the very least adds some much needed color on airports worldwide.

Because the unveiling is 1.5 days away and the vast majority of people who see the video on twitter would never pick up on the schematic in the background for that 1 second clip. I certainly didn't pick up on it until it was mentioned here.

This was likely a mistake that slipped by them, or an intentional hint. It's probably also there so the painters know it's confidential. And if that were to be a Continental paper (which I'm very positive it's not), why is there no gold like there was on the CO livery? That footage is too new to be from the 1990s, 100%.

Nothing important was reveled on the tail. Same globe design.

If you look closely and freeze the frame where they are peeling off the tape on the tail, it seems like both shades of United’s blue on their color pállate is there, so at least it won’t be just one shade of blue and then white.


If you're talking about at 13 seconds, the blue is just darkened from the shadow of the paper the painter is peeling off. If you look closely, you can see where the line turns dark is waving. From that clip, it's all the same color. You can also see the same shadow line continue all the way down the white, to the bottom of the screen.

Okay, then how were they able to render videotape footage in 1991 in full scale, digital HD resolution? If it was actual footage from the '90s, it'd be super blurry and full of video artifacting.

What if this clip is actually from 2010-2011 time when UA planes were being repainted in to the "new" livery. It would make sense that a very similar globe would still be there, it is possible that there is gold on the globe, and the aircraft would still say United.

I think the tinfoil hat is being used a little too much here....

I mean, you can even see the gray wave. That's the new livery. That isn't footage from the 1990's or 2010.

Chicago Business Journal has a writeup on Wednesday's reveal. Not a whole lot we don't already know, but a few minor details about the ceremony itself.

https://www.bizjournals.com/chicago/new ... point.html

An airline’s livery is one of the most visible aspects of any carrier’s brand image, and the United livery that will be introduced on Wednesday comes at a crucial juncture for the carrier as it seeks to grow its footprint around the world and position itself as a more caring airline that has greatly evolved since that fateful merger in 2010.

United has planned Wednesday’s event to incorporate a broad cross-section of the airline’s workforce who are on the frontlines of that evolution. Some 500 United employees are expected to be present for the unveiling in a United maintenance hangar at the carrier’s largest hub at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, along with representatives from media outlets far and wide.

United leaders, CEO Oscar Munoz and President Scott Kirby, also are expected to be on hand to helm the ceremonial unveiling, though a United spokeswoman has not confirmed either’s attendance.

A full two-hours has been set aside at the giant hangar for the new livery ceremony after attendees are bused from a temporary Transportation Security Administration screening area set up at a United reservations center near the airfield to the maintenance hangar on the airport grounds.

If this is it, it reminds me of the packaging the Ralphs grocery store used in the 80's for their generic line of products.

Not looking good.

Or... what if...

The wavy strip/stripe/cheatline varies!! That is, some aircraft use Dusk, some use Pacific Blue, some use Sky Blue, etc.

I am guessing that we will see 2 separate aircraft on the 24th, the above mentioned 737-800 and a 787-8... time will tell! That being said, what is so "dumpy" about a 737-800?

They probably planned to do it on a 737-9MAX before they were all grounded...

Given MAX aircraft are permitted to be flown for maintenance/ferrying/anything-else-that-isn't-revenue-service, the grounding would not have prevented UA from unveiling the 'evolved' livery on a MAX. Though, to be fair, they might have felt it wasn't a wise move for PR (my personal opinion is they could've easily got around that, too). The reality is they probably had the B738 programmed for this before the MAX grounding.

These are my final predictions. Either purple or blue winglets. "Final Answer"


If the engine nacelles are painted blue I wonder if UA will finally paint the engines of the 787 to match the rest of the fleet. Would be a disappointment if not. I’d rather see white nacelles and a unified livery than blue engines on all put the 78.

What part of the plane is this? Two shades of blue visible and it's not a trick of the light.

I still stand by that it could be stock footage. Check out this video starting at 1:19 lot's of paint rendering shots from 1991: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVlNf4Io2Do&t=3s


But this footage doesn’t look like it’s from the 1990s.


Why would UA corporate allow something "Confidential" revealing the tail in a video though?!?

Companies frequently “leak” hints like this all the time when rebranding/unveiling a new product, etc to build buzz. It was a very quick shot with the painter covering most of the livery plan except for the tail. The people putting together that video knew exactly what they were doing. And it worked- see how much people here are talking about the livery based on that one second part.
