Check Out All the Newly Painted United Planes



This photo gallery highlights some of the airplanes that United has painted in their updated paint scheme, known as a livery. The new United Airlines – in its merger with Continental Airlines – has completed painting 309 mainline and regional aircraft.

They still have 80% of their fleet left to paint. United will be accelerating their re-branding in the coming months and passengers are already starting to see some of the new advertising and will soon see facilities with the latest United brand.

United and Continental completed their merger on October 1, 2010. Although they have started to use the combined United brand, both airlines will continue to operate separately until receipt of a single operating certificate, which they hope to have by the end of 2011.

I honestly think they chose the Continental colors because if you think about it, all of the continental aircraft had the same paint scheme and with Uniteds fleet, the last couple of years its been mixed between the newer white and blue stripes paint scheme and the grey with blue bottom paint scheme from the 90s.
