The first 737-800 to be fitting with winglets at CO gets the distinction of being the first -800 to wear the company new colors. (Canon 20D/K64)

Is this the finished new livery? Looks a bit bland/ non-desrcipt...

It looks like an afterthought, having simply slapped the united name onto a continental a/c. would like to see a brand new, combined image. something with a little more colour.

Woah! I was on this plane last August, flew it to Newark from Cancun!! So sad to see a name like Continental will soon be lost though.

I simply adore this livery. It doesn't get more elegant than this.

Just a matter of time before people forget the continental brand (who remembers TED, Song or skybus?). And by then, perhaps a more creative logo and paint scheme change. Until then, it's about as plain as it gets.

This new livery is so uninspiring to me. Aside from the tail, there's nothing creative, original or interesting about it. It reminds me of those non-descript military aircraft you sometimes see at airports with the UNITED painted on as an after thought.

Breathtaking bird! Simple, yet elegant.

The best themes from the classic United livery and from the Continental livery need to be fit together in a much more unifying and attractive package. This looks like a plane that has two personalities. Like the winglets though.

Despicable! Disgraceful! This is the worst thing that can happen to the two airlines since Continental exited bankruptcy.

Nice photo but I'm disappointed with the livery. Could they not have been more imaginative? Such a big merging of two major airlines deserves a new livery, surely?

I wonder how much money they paid to get this awful hybrid scheme..

A great plane, two "Big" (after UA & CO merger) Airlines livery in one frame, but I miss some red color in it.

I think the new livery looks pretty clean but it just a little bland especially for a new airline.

For the last "Visitor from England" Its just a name that's different.
Thats it. Its the Co livery with very few tweaks, and the UA name.
