"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" hasn't hit theaters yet, but United Airlines has teamed up with the franchise to sport two of their 737's with Star Wars themed interior and livery's. These planes are in the air and transporting passengers all over the country and just recently, they've been spotted at Denver International Airport. In fact, my ramp agent friends have posted a red one and the blue one you see above.
If you're lucky enough to have booked a flight one one of these, People.com reported that passengers are treated to the familiar Star Wars soundtrack while boarding and will also receive an "amenity kit" that has tissue, ear plugs, a toothbrush, and products by Sunday Riley-a skincare company. And, maybe for the first time, you'll pay attention to the safety video as Yoda and Chewbacca are the ones walking you through the steps. Help you they will.
As you know, United has reserved seating so you may not have the choice of sitting in the Resistance or First Order seating as the headsets clearly indicated which side is which. From pictures on Pinterest, the red is on the left and the blue is on the right. United's MileagePlus members have the opportunity to bid on their Star Wars themed experience and could possibly attend the premiere of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" in either Los Angeles or London. You best hurry, the movie will be released on December, 20th.
Maybe you're not one to stare out the windows when visiting DIA, but seeing this unique aircraft might change your mind. I know from my experience of working on the ramp at DIA and seeing hundreds of aircraft everyday, this would be cool to see. I can tell you it's got the attention of the rampers that are out there now, including my friends at Southwest Airlines. May the force....you know.
