By the time Peter Parker is done traveling through Europe in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he'll be able to give airline safety demonstrations before any flight he takes - and United Airlines might just let him. Though Spidey himself doesn't deliver the safety guidelines himself, he does appear in United's new safety video to play before flights, which debuted this week.
“We’ve kept the worlds of Spider-Man and United safety separate, but together,” Daniel Cuellar, United Airlines Director of Global Advertising told USAToday, who broke news of the video. “Crew members, as always, are doing the demos and giving instructions, but there’s an underlying fun Spider-Man aspect to it.”
Here's the full video as it will be shown on some United Airlines flights:
“There are lots of different scenes of the kids going over and coming back,” said Cuellar of how airplane travel influences the plot of Far From Home. “Peter Parker has one very rich friend who’s flying in Polaris while everyone else is flying in economy. So there’s lots of great footage of the aircraft. And when the kids come home from Europe, they filmed in Newark Airport as well.”
“That’s the benefit of partnering with Sony,” added Mark Krolick, United Airlines Vice President of Marketing. “We were able to make this safety video with movie theater-style production and effects. It’s not something we usually have the opportunity to do and I think our customers will appreciate the higher production value.”
Several other MCU Spider-Man characters appear in the video, including Ned, Flash Thompson, Mr. Delmar, and even Stan Lee. United CEO Oscar Munoz also has a cameo.
Spider-Man: Far From Home is due out in North America theaters July 2.
