United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz stated the airline will unveil an updated livery this spring. The CEO made the comment at the US Chamber of Commerce meeting in Washington, DC.

Munoz stated the new design will be an “evolution, not a revolution” according to Flightglobal.

The current United livery is based on the 1991 Continental Airlines globe livery, 28 years in the marketplace. A refresh is long overdue. The 787s (above) carry a slight alteration to the 1991 design.

The last “real United livery” was the 2004 Tulip four-tone blue design (below), which ironically was newer than the 1991 Continental globe livery that replaced it.
