VIDEO: Guests Are Loving The United Airlines Star Wars-Themed Airplane And Experience
We previously brought you the exciting news that United Airlines had announced a special Star Wars-themed Boeing 737-800 aircraft featuring a Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker-themed look and future onboard experience. We are happy to report that the future is now! This “out-of-this-galaxy” United Airlines’ aircraft has made its debut and passengers are loving it!
United greets its passengers with classic Star Wars-themed music during the boarding process and is distributing commemorative pins throughout December in celebration of the movie’s premiere. The aircraft’s interior also features a special plaque reflecting United’s relationship with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and includes headrests affixed with the emblems of the film’s dueling factions, the Resistance and the First Order.
Outside, the new paint design captures the exotic atmosphere of the Star Wars galaxy and features imagery of iconic Star Wars spacecrafts, including the X-wing and TIE fighter starships. The aircraft’s tail also displays different colored lightsabers against a black backdrop on each side, reflecting the two sides of the Force.
Hear what passengers are loving about this new aircraft in the video below:
While not everyone will have the chance to see the new livery in person, anyone will be able to track United’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker-themed aircraft via special icon on FlightAware, the world’s largest online flight tracking platform. For the first time, aviation and Star Wars enthusiasts can track past and future flights on both desktop and mobile by entering the plane’s tail number and the new livery will appear on FlightAware’s flight tracking maps as the X-Wing starship.
