VOTE! United Airlines Will Introduce a Retro Livery, Which is Your Favorite?

There are a lot of you out there that aren’t too keen on United’s new combined livery with Continental. The more I keep seeing the new livery in photos the more I seem to like it. Not that long ago, I was able to view the new United livery in person at Boeing Field and I have to say it isn’t that bad. Although the new livery is growing on me, it can’t beat some of United’s liveries from the past. I have been hoping that United would be having a retro-livery themed plane and good news; they will.

I have been asking to see the Saul Bass United livery to make a comeback, but after viewing some of their other liveries on a Boeing 757, I am not too sure anymore. We already know what the Saul Bass United livery looks like on a Boeing 757, but we don’t know what the others would look like.

United employees are able to vote until the first week of December. The Boeing 757 will remain in the retro livery until it goes into paint again.

UPDATE (12/13/10): The winner has been announced, see which retro United livery won.
