So much more attractive than the old United scheme. Gray reminds me of a B-52 not an airline.

I agree. Anything to get rid of that gray.
Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to give an aircraft that viewing nostalgia back!

Okay, that's cool... how long does that actually take?

I would have thought they could have come up with a better livery... but I think that's just sort of interim. They only have to completely repaint half of the airplanes. I would imagine that within a couple years... once the merger is complete (or at least as complete as airline mergers get) and the Continental name disappears... they'll come up with something a little more imaginative.

Reminds me of my model building days - only bigger!
I wonder why they stripped the paint off the fusalage but
painted over the vertical stabilizer?

Well Michael you have to keep in mind that a plane of that size, paint adds lots of weight to the aircraft. Nice video though I would have loved to have seen what the finished repaint looked like.

I agree with Michael and John, the old gray looks disgusting.

Still prefer the blue and white livery. Looks much better than the "Continental" livery, IMHO.

I'm still entertained by the complete laziness and lack of creativity by the new United. "Take the Continental paint scheme a slap the name 'United' on it!" Well done, people, well done! :-)

Paint is expensive and painting even more expensive...look for lots of short cuts now. At least they picked the better of the two.

I like the white and blue pre-merger UA livery a lot better than the CO livery.
