United plans 'evolution' to globe livery: CEO

Recommended Posts


07 MARCH, 2019 SOURCE: FLIGHT DASHBOARD BY: EDWARD RUSSELL WASHINGTON DC

United Airlines will unveil an updated livery that chief executive Oscar Munoz calls an "evolution" in the next few months.


"It's an evolution not a revolution," he says on the sidelines of the US Chamber of Commerce aviation summit in Washington DC today. "I think it's pretty cool."


The Chicago-based carrier will unveil the livery update in the "April-ish" timeframe, adds Munoz.


United uses an adapted version of the former Continental Airlines "globe" logo and livery that was designed by Lippincott and unveiled in 1991. Continental and United merged in 2010.


The current design features the "United" name in a blue sans-serif font on a largely white fuselage. A blue and gold globe adorns the tail.


Munoz says the update will incorporate some of the colours United has recently added to its branding palette that, for example, include the purple used for its new premium economy product and a new shade of blue dubbed "Rhapsody Blue".


One colour that is likely to feature less prominently is gold, which is currently used as a cheatline between the white upper fuselage and grey belly, and in the globe on the tail.


The design guidelines for United's "Her Art Here" contest, where it invites female artists to submit designs for a Boeing 757, could include a clue to the evolved look. The "United" name is shown in a bold sans-serif font stretching from the top of the fuselage to below the window line, whereas currently it is limited to above the windows.


United will introduce its new look "in the course of normal business" as it takes delivery of new aircraft, and brings existing ones in for modifications and maintenance, says Munoz.


The airline operated 770 mainline aircraft and 559 regional aircraft at the end of 2018, its latest fleet plan shows. It is scheduled to take delivery of 40 mainline aircraft this year, including 20 Boeing 737 Max 9s and eight Boeing 787-10s.


Southwest Airlines was the last major US carrier to unveil a new look, rolling out its current look in 2014. Prior to that, American Airlines debuted a major brand update in 2013.


Updated with details of colours added to branding palette, and the design guidelines for the Her Art Here contest.

Quer ver? vão deixar a fuselagem toda branca, sem faixa dourada/barriga cinza.

Aí no máximo vão "escorrer" a cor da cauda para a fuselagem (estilo Tam, Latam, American, Lufthansa...)

Aparenta muito ser fake, até mesmo porque as cores não casam com a paleta publicada acima. Deus queira que seja fake, pois está horrível, a fonte, as linhas no corpo, com exceção do leme, que tem um esquema de cores bonito, mas o globo está em uma posição feia. Ficou com cara de charteira dos anos 2000 do Leste Europeu.

Podiam é dar só uma melhorada no globo (como a COPA fez) e adotar a fuselagem dos 787... pronto... mas certamente vem alguma desgraça por aí no nivel da LH.

O interessante da pintura da Copa é fazer alusão quando era 49% da Continental.

 

Hoje não há vínculos acionários e a pintura continua. E o mais interessante é quem vai mudar é a matriz.

Podia voltar a tulipa, mesmo que seja pequena, atrás da janela do cockpit, por exemplo.

E um artista capenga diga-se de passagem

 

 

Não concordo. Conheço bem o ramo e temos contatos em comum, é um p*ta profissional que foi um dos pioneiros da equipe de retail design da Apple.

 

Inclusive vem daí a quase certeza de que não se trata do esquema final, ele não daria um bypass no lançamento do cliente sem autorização pra colocar o projeto no seu portfolio.
