I apologize if this is old news, but while I have seen the proliferation of new United paint jobs over the past few months, I have not seen any of the United Express planes in their new dressing until today. Today I actually saw four of them! Leaving Salt Lake City, I saw one parked at a gate. Then landing in Denver, I saw three of them right next to each other! I thought they looked quite pretty, to be honest.
While I’ll miss the tulip, this new, classy, understated look is really growing on me. I couldn’t get my iPhone out fast enough to snap a picture of all three in a row, but I went to the window after I deplaned and got the picture above. If you click it, you’ll get the larger picture with another UX plane, also with the new paint job, to the right. Of course… no new paint job will make those CRJ-200s less miserable to fly in!
