In all honesty. I used to hate the new livery, but since then it has grown on me a lot. I freaking love the thing now!

I love it. Almost as much as Alaska’s livery. It looks especially nice on the 737 family, A320 family, 777, and 787.

You also forgot the picture of the CRJ-550.

Same here to be honest…I didn’t find it to be a big change until I saw it in person

When it first came out, I hated it. But now it’s starting to grow on me. The blue has a nice pop to it, and in a weird way, it’s kind of calming. I’ve realized now that the old one was kind of dull and boring, and this one is a lot nicer.

I also left out the 772, 789, and 78X, but since I have room for one more picture I might as well

Same here! The old livery does seem really dull and outdated now haha. :)

I think United’s new liveries are awesome but I also like the current/old ones.

Ugly doesn’t change

It’s really grown on me!

Great thread and thanks for the feature.

I like the old livery way better. I think that if United put that little gold squiggly line like they have on the MAXs and the Dreamliners, they’d be set.

I prefer the old livery, so much more classy and the colours contrast much better. Not sure why they changed their livery to something so awful

I remember the day it got released I hated it, but now I love it
It look a lot more modern then the old livery

I like it very much

I think a lot of people forget that untied has been using continentals livery for years now. United has always had their unique liveries and it was time to upgrade from their outdated livery, that technically, wasn’t even their idea. I personally really like this livery, since I loved the late 2000s tulip livery, and this looks like a mix of that and the continental livery.
