As a counterpoint, I thought it was one of the most beautiful liveries I've ever seen.

Many of us loved that livery at United but the reason for leaving it? The money it would have cost to repaint the Entire fleet following the merger, Aside from the fact that Glen Tilton couldn't WAIT to turn the reigns over to Jeff Smisek and Co. Who didn't want to let go of ANYTHING Continental. Which is probably why there are few S-CO's still around running United. They definitely didn't have any "Global View" as I found it amazing they'd come as far as they had..
