Yes indeed:

As many times mentioned I think this is really the best looking 787 next to the one from AC & VS!

Congrats to AA

Really like the new livery on the 788! And I prefer the shorter "hot-rod" look of the -8, so I'm happy.

All the color on the tail end of the fuselage makes it all look stubbier than a typical 788.

Quoting UA444 (Reply 19):
Their entire "brand" is an outdated, generic mess that manages to be ugly as well. Completely takes any joy out of seeing any of their fleet, including those 787s. Jeff Smisek's pride and joy, though.

Really? To each their own I guess. Maybe in my particular instance, it's due to having flown AA DC-10's transcon or to HNL back in the '70s and '80s. Or maybe it's the fact it was the very last heritage livery in use by one of our legacy carriers. Regardless, the bare metal and the 'flying A's' will always, to me, represent one of the last visible reminders of the Golden Age of aviation.

Personally, not only do I prefer the classic bare-metal livery over the rebrand, but I miss UA's tulip as well.

Quoting Boeing778X (Reply 48):
OBJECTION! CO's livery is beautiful and classy! Without a doubt my favorite livery. I hope it stays for many years. It reminds me of better days  

But the 787 looks absolutely stunning in AAs livery, no doubt.

Purely subjective of course, but my own personal pecking order is as follows:

pmUA livery > (old) AA livery > pmCO livery > (new) AA livery > UA/CO livery

Hell, for that matter: A livery > UA/CO livery

That's like saying the livery is superior to a focus-grouped logo of a conjoined fetus, as that's essentially what I see whenever my eyes fall upon that mashed-up CO/UA livery complete with the most generic sans serif font to ever defile a fuselage.

On the contrary. A committee wasn't even allowed to deliberate over a new UA livery.

Quoting eisenbach (Reply 18):
Usually the window shades have to be open during takeoff and landing (and the lights have to be dimmed), as in case of an accident, you don't want your view obstructed by closed window shades or be "blinded" by bright light  

Normally the airlines I fly (Europe, Asia, ME) this is enforced very strictly.

I get that, though as per my own experience, having dozens of J-class transits through LHR and FRA in the West and SIN, HKG, and GMP/ICN in the East, I never once recall having an FA instruct me to open a shade. Why? Because I always book a window seat, and I always keep my shade open.  

However, I have more than a couple distinct recollections flying into/out of the 'old' BLR that there was a different slant on enforcement, and somewhere in that general part of the world, I am fairly certain of having been instructed - on more than one occasion - to lower my shade.

Ha. This is what happens when any head cheese thinks him or herself above the peer review process (see: George Lucas and the wonderfully-written screenplays of the Star Wars prequel trilogy).

The irony is - at least to my eyes - they couldn't have re-branded with a more generic appearance if they had actually set out to do so. It honestly appears to be a focus-grouped, let's-not-offend-anyone approach that IMO - and obviously I'm not alone in this sentiment - missed the mark.

love nothing more than looking out the window, on a scenic flight I'd rather be on a shabby 30 years old 767 than a shiny new 787! I couldn't care less about a cabin with higher pressurization and humidity if I can't enjoy the view.

If the sun is up, you can see out of the window even when it is at its darkest setting. Anyone who claims otherwise hasn't actually been on a 787.

Furthermore, at least on JL, the F/As can dim all the windows, but the passengers retain individual control.

I'm soooo glad we're to the point where we can just enjoy the pretty airplanes instead of thinking of Potemkin rollouts, bad fasteners, travelled work, SOB joints, EE bay 'fires', Li-Ion battery 'fires', etc. Heck, even the 'terrible teens' are finally being dealt with one by one.

Doesn't it though? Rhapsody in Blue is hands-down is my favorite Gershwin composition, long and gamey, and I will forever associate it with UA. Regardless of my carrier of choice, it's front and center in the playlist I cue up once I'm in flight (and almost always makes me think wistfully of those old UA commericals).

On the other hand, maybe for consistency's sake they should consider re-branding their choice of music as well, and instead choose something as audibly generic as their livery is to the eye - like the birthday song... "Happy Birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Thanks for flying us dear passenger, but you won't get any food." Or something to that effect.

I initially thought the titles were too small as well, but I think it might make the plane look even chunkier/stubbier if the title was bigger. Maybe if it was raised up a little, rather than larger?

Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 46):
It looks certainly much better than the computer render

But the paint in the rendering looks so much more metallic and shiny than the actual, which is too bad. I know there's no way to "paint" something to the same degree of shininess as the bare polished aluminum, but isn't there more reflective paint that could be used than what they have now?

The "Battleship" was tough looking, while The "Blue Rising" was elegant.

I agree--"Blue Rising" was the best UA livery ever IMO, and it's a shame it didn't last longer.
