Once onboard, passengers will be greeted by special Star Wars boarding music, Star Wars themed interior, branded headsets, and a one-of-a-kind Star Wars themed safety video featuring characters from the movie franchise.
“The video features special appearances by several iconic Star Wars characters and thrilling, space-themed sequences scored to some of the most recognizable musical themes in both motion picture and commercial aviation history,” United said in a statement.
Passengers flying onboard the Star Wars experience flight in December will receive commemorative pins to celebrate the launch of the movie. As of today, it is unclear which route or routes the Star Wars United plane will fly.
