Update on United & Continental repainting process

Courtesy of United Continental Holdings Inc.
United Airlines reports that 2010 ended with 77 mainline airplanes featuring the new livery. The majority of them are Continental aircrafts since that livery requires less work than the one from United. CO has completed painting 70 planes of various types. UA has repainted seven Boeing 777 with the most recent one out of the paint shop last Tuesday. Additional 17 UA planes will be repainted in January. By the end of 2011 UA expects to have more than 250 mainline planes repainted. See a time laps on the paint job here
