Contrary to many on here, I’ve always liked the CO/UA golden globe livery, and I also hope they keep some gold in their scheme.
For me, ideally the new globe would include a variety of shades of blue, not dissimilar to the 2012 concept upthread. I’d include the new teal/turquoise, purple and deep blue colours, but would also retain some gold.
On the fuselage, I’d use the 787/737-MAX style wavy gold cheatline, perhaps updated with a blue cheat crossing it, but both sitting lower to allow for the larger titles. A blue belly could be an option, though the current grey does allow the stronger elements on the livery to shine, and so with the strong accents suggested above could be kept.
Finishing it off would be larger - and perhaps even billboard - United titling, with a return of the tulip next to it, perhaps slightly faded. So utilising two icons of the airline, à la TK, as another a.netter suggested upthread.
With the above ideas, if they went billboard they’d need to drop the cheatline and belly colouring down before it reaches the billboard title. Either way, this version could end up being innovative, while evolutionary.
What do you all think?
I'm hoping the globe is replaced with a flat earth to go along with all the chemtrails UA's planes are releasing onto the innocent populace every day.
You win this thread.
Sometimes a.net is just brilliant in its acerbic humour.
Big marks to both of you!
Well, okay -- United is about to lose the last element of Continental Airlines that existed. They ditched the Houston headquarters and downsized the hub. So what's left for anyone in Houston to show loyalty to?
Toxteth, are you a Liverpool local like me?
