United by name, Continental by logo

To demonstrate the union of airlines United and Continental as a "merger of equals," the company planes will represent both carriers in a special name/logo hybrid. They'll use the Continental logo and colors and carry the United name.

Beyond the changing of plane appearances and the creation of the world's largest airline, it seems things will remain largely the same over at Continentited. But just to be sure, you may want to check the official FAQ.

Listen to the story from the Marketplace Morning Report.

The generic globe and the "U" are equally weak. Just change the logo to dollar signs, because that is what we will be paying more of to fly on the world's largest airline.

How about a logo of a big mooning "moon" and the word <i><b>ConU</i></b>


The generic globe is so much weaker than the "U" of United. Delta's move to an all red triangle and tilting it in some uses, is a much better way to evoke Northwest's tilted red triangle than the eenie-meenie approach from United.
