A New UA Livery?

Tue May 13, 2003 5:44 am

Hey all, Im not aware if the UA Shuttle aircraft have undergone any makeovers into the mainline color schemes, but during the time that there was a Shuttle by United, there was a scheme flying that said "United Shuttle" Im sure what everyone knows what I'm talking about. It said it in the same font as United's branding on their web site is...etc. So im wondering if any of those planes have had the "shuttle" removed, and just say "U N I T E D" ??? Thanks for any help.
PS... I miss the SHUTTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe that I have seen a few of the "Shuttles" around SFO recently. I suppose that they don't see a need, considering their current financial situation, to bother restoring those a/c to the standard UA livery. In addition to the Shuttle livery you mention, there are also some old Shuttle a/c that have "Shuttle by United" with Shuttle in a cursive font. If I'm not mistaken, those a/c are white (?).

In fact I flew on a shuttle plane the other day. It was one of the grey series. And yes they still have the white shuttle planes as well. Saw one at ORD.

None of the Shuttle planes have been altered since their Shuttle days, whether they are the white-top Shuttles, the gray-top/cursive Shuttle logo, or gray-top/current font liveries. The only 737s you'll see with gray- top/"United Airlines" liveries are the ones that have always been mainline, complete with one extra lav, 8 less seats, Economy Plus, and galleys.
