In 2010, United acquired Continental Airlines in a merger completed later that year. Initially, the entities remain separate, with United continuing to use a variant of the slant U logo. The logo and livery was presented with the merger on May 3 and keeps most aspects of Continental's identity, but replaces the Continental name with United.
