As we await the next “evolution” of the United Airlines livery, a new style of mobile boarding passes may offer a clue as to what to expect.
For years, United mobile boarding passes have looked like this in the Apple Wallet app:
(I removed the bar code at the bottom)
But earlier this week, they took on a slightly different appearance:
The darker blue represents United’s new “Rhapsody Blue” (R:17, G:48, B:153). These new colors are also reflected in recently unveiled employee uniforms and represent the future style of the brand.

United removes all gold from its boarding pass, just like its color palette that now lacks gold. This two-tone, white on Rhapsody Blue color scheme is my prediction for how the new livery will look.
Currently, United’s globe livery on the tail (empennage) is gold in color:
A picture submitted to airliners.net from the Boeing factory in Everett suggests the globe will stay but simply be in blue and white:
I’m expecting a simpler blue/white globe, the United livery larger in the darker blue shade, and a cheat line that may be purple in color.
United doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel with its new livery. I’d rather have a small change to the color scheme than a new design that may be even worse than the globe. That appears to be the course United is taking.

1) If you look closely at that 737 on Airliners.net…wingtips still have gold cheat line…
2) Sat next to a UA pilot on last weeks flight and he said he’s seen the new logo and it’s nit the disco ball.
I don’t think United has shown the new logo to many people. But if it is not the disco ball / globe / bingo cage, what is it?
A bloody nose
I think there may have been an internal slip-up on this, and they changed the color too early. I noticed the new blue on my BP on Wednesday, but for today’s flight, it’s back to the old blue.
Good riddance to the gold…hopefully the bingo cage is next
let me guess – you want the crappy, horrible customer service that involves a silly tulip?
The aircraft in the picture is for COPA.
That’s not COPA’s tail logo
That plane (with a line number of 6899) has already been delivered to United and is currently stored. The picture you are showing is from last year (April, 2018)
