Beginning June 1, United Airlines’ promotional partnership with the Spider-Man: Far From Home movie will include Spider-Man-themed amenity kits in Polaris business class. The kits will feature Spidey-branded comfort products including an eye mask, socks, tissues, ear plugs, a toothbrush and a pen alongside luxury skincare products, designed exclusively for United customers.
The kits complement the airline’s latest inflight safety demonstration video featuring Spider-Man in an entertaining mini-drama. The video begins with villains entering a corner store and causing ‘turbulence’ with their disruption to Mr Delmar, played by Hemky Madera. The deli scene includes a framed photo of Stan Lee, honouring the immense impact he had on the Marvel community. #avgeek viewers will appreciate the preview of the recently announced updated United livery displayed on the animated Boeing 787-10 aircraft, prior to customers learning the locations of the exits. Next, Peter Parker’s best friend Ned, played by Jacob Batalon, shares a scene with United CEO Oscar Munoz as the villains head into a nearby theatre to escape Spider-Man. In one of the final scenes, Eugene ‘Flash’ Thompson, played by Toni Revolori, helps to demonstrate that cell phones and large devices should be put into airplane mode prior to take-off.
A third Spider-Themed treat is that the airline’s MileagePlus members are able to bid award miles on a one-of-a-kind experience to attend the Spider-Man: Far From Home premiere in Los Angeles on June 26. This opportunity will give a member access for two to attend the premiere, red carpet event and afterparty. Members also have the ability to use miles to attend a pre-release screening of the movie in one of United’s seven hub cities.
