Overall, it's a good livery. Not the best, but not the worst.
The tail looks great, but I wish they kept the straight line on the fuselage to look more "serious".
I also didn't like the billboard titles... In my opinion, it usually only works on airplanes that have shorter names (like TAM and Gol). The United title would look way better above the windows (but larger than it was on the old livery, something like AF did on their 787s).
Anyway, United needed a refresh and I'm glad they did it!

A dark blue globe on the tail (as in the second photo) would have looked better.

I saw it in person today, heres what I think:

I think the globe shouldve been white and not watered down; an aircraft tail is definitely large enough to show the detail the original globe had. Plus a more neutral color such as white or a darkish metallic silver would have more of a premium feel with the swoosh adding a laid-back approach to help the brand resonate with all audiences.

As far as the livery itself, some purple and teal accents here and there wouldve really made it pop better; ie purple winglets and maybe a teal gradient in the swoosh to thin the blue out a bit. Right now it's just too much white and blue. The "Connecting people. Uniting the world." tagline addition I like.

Overall i give it a 6.5 out of 10.

Will it grow on me? More than likely.

Its very simple and I like simple but i think the cheat wave fails. It should get thicker as it moves backward.

And for those looking for purple, as the wave thickens it could also pic up a “shadow” pinstripe of purple. Though thats not necessary.

God bless you, this is amazing.

It's an expectedly poor fit with the A320, but I think it looks great on the 757 and the RJ.

This may actually really improve the look of the RJ fleet.

The true test of the livery will be how it looks on the WB fleet.


Should see it on a 787-8 April 27th...…


What's going on on the 27th?

Serious, don't know. Can't wait if true.

Having seen the daylight pictures I’ve got to give United credit, this updated livery is a huge improvement. Gold is just a ghastly color that instantly makes me think of the elderly and their favorite color for cars.

Liked it when it leaked, like it even more now. To be fair, I also really liked AA’s new livery when it came out.

I think this light shade of grey now looks *completely* out of place. A darker tone would have worked much better imo.

Not to mention the outdated swoosh and the blue line above it, this is not the 2000s anymore.

Last but not least, the new blue/Indigo/light blue gradients look cheap, especially in broad daylight.

This is an average rebranding at best, although I'm glad they removed the tacky Continental brownish gold.

That particular shade of white is what really
ruins the new livery


Maybe it’s the lighting, I hope so it just looks pale and ‘washed out’

I really dislike the light blue globe - should have been white. It looks very tacky and non-business-like and the gradient on the tail is weird considering the titles and engines are just straight, bold blue. I don't like the wavy gray belly in the context of the rest of the design - in fact, it looks like all the design elements were made independent of each other and have nothing to do with each other.

I like it. It certainly isn’t the most exciting livery out there, but I don’t think it would be realistic to expect that from a US carrier. But I also think it does exactly what it set out to do. It looks refreshed and more modern. It doesn’t scream Continental, but it also blends aspects of both United and Continental and unifies it into one. Additionally, whether or not you’re a fan of United, I will say they do branding very well. They have gotten a lot of uses out of that globe, including their clever use of the negative space globe, and now with this livery it all comes together nicely. Coupled with their use of rhapsody in blue, I really think United handles its branding very well.

To be honest I don't like it. It's like the Dreamliner-wave but many years to late. If you go for fancy you need to take the next design not an old one like this. Waves are yesterday.
United should better develop some true avantgarde livery before they paint to many of their aircraft this way.

Why they chose the deep blue for the curvy cheatline is lost on me. Should have been the United blue. I do not think it harmonizes well with the sapphire or light blues of the tail / nacelles / winglets. Or better yet, keep the damn thing gold.


In terms of the light blue they are going to be using it much more, one of the most notable applications will be replacing the yellow in the MileagePlus logo, so that will be united blue and the new sky-blue, so over time it will seem on brand.

Agreed that the Rhapsody Blue doesn't really work on the swoop, but I think using the United blue would have made it way too much like a married couple wearing the same shirt at the same time. I actually think the Sky Blue as used on the globe would have been a better choice for the swoop, to tie those elements together. I agree with others who have said the livery looks a bit disjointed, and I think the swoop color is the main reason why.

Actually, a lot of people have said they like it. Haven't seen this level of praise in a while. So not sure what you're talking about.

And... "smart looking?" I don't hate it by any means but I think it's about the complete opposite of smart looking. Enormous billboard type fonts and wavy lines don't scream smart - they scream dumb.

I think the Paint skills are actually pretty impressive and the idea was interesting, but it just doesn't work for me. The plane ends up looking visually very tail-heavy.

Why they chose the deep blue for the curvy cheatline is lost on me. Should have been the United blue. I do not think it harmonizes well with the sapphire or light blues of the tail / nacelles / winglets. Or better yet, keep the damn thing gold.


Agreed that the Rhapsody Blue doesn't really work on the swoop, but I think using the United blue would have made it way too much like a married couple wearing the same shirt at the same time. I actually think the Sky Blue as used on the globe would have been a better choice for the swoop, to tie those elements together. I agree with others who have said the livery looks a bit disjointed, and I think the swoop color is the main reason why.


The fact that they were showing a Sky Blue swoop in the runup to the reveal made me think that's the color it would be. I'm not sure the color choice of the swoop was the best.

When AA rolled out their new livery in 2013, they made it known
the S80's would not be re -painted due to their impending retirement.

Wondering which planes in UA's fleet are close to retirement and therefore
won't be repainted?

I have read the usual negativity that this forum is well known for. Nobody likes change. Well, I like it's simplicity. It's very smart looking. Will be a nice change to the crap United morphed from their merger.


It just looks cheap.
Not elegant at all.

It’s nothing against change, neither about negativism. It’s just the way it looks - for some people.

Just curious, does UA need approval from Boeing to eventually use that cheatline on aircraft other than Boeing?

I think it's rather telling that a great deal of the support for this livery seems to be based not on its aesthetic merits but rather on the fact that it looks "less Continental".

In my mind it's a major step backwards. Billboard titles can work but they need to be larger - this design is about the perfect size to suffer maximum interference from the windows. The light blue on dark blue is an awkward contrast that varies from clashing in daylight to blending at night. The grey seems slightly too close in tone to the white and in every picture I've seen the "blue" swoosh looks pretty close to black. The overall effect is one that's both cluttered and bland, because they're really only working with two colours and the shades within them are all in the "uncanny valley" of being separate enough to distinguish but not enough so to contrast, let alone compliment.

The United 787 is the worst looking type in the fleet, if you ask me. Followed by the now grounded 737 MAX. And from now on by all aircraft in the new livery. Why? Because of what United names the swoop. I just wish these wavy lines would disappear. They look so cheap and powerless.
