First, the results of the poll. The initial margin held fairly steady at a 2:1 margin for “I like it, but don’t love it.” Most of the comments bear that out as well. I’ve obviously seen a lot of the new images over the past week or so and still feel like I’m firmly in that category. I may feel differently once I see the plane up close.
Coincidentally, Wandering Aramean did get to see one of the new birds with the new paint job. I definitely like the actual pictures as opposed to renderings a bit more, but I still think I need to see it up close to decide whether I like the gray skin.
Anyway, on to the part most people probably care about, the winner of the systemwide upgrade. There were 150 total comments between those on my blog and those in the poll itself. I categorized the blog comments first, poll second. Random.org helped me out again and selected:
Congrats to Ryan, who commented:
Love it. Think it’s up there on the list of best looking liveries in the industry.
Okay, so maybe Ryan and I don’t see eye-to-eye on the logo just yet, or maybe he was just trying to butter up AA and Random.org with his nice comments. At any rate, you’ve won a UA or AA SWU. Contact me at ed -at- milepoint dot com and I’ll get you taken care of.
