Band Geek Meets Plane Geek: United’s “Flyer Friendly”

Slightly off topic, United Airlines released their new revamped ad and media campaign, complete with a new slogan “Flyer Friendly,” paying homage to the “Fly the Friendly Skies” slogan of yesteryear.

Said United on their site,

Indeed, to film the ad, we used one of our Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with United BusinessFirst®, United Economy Plus® and United Economy® seating. This newly refurbished plane, with new seating throughout, has in-seat entertainment and more spacious overhead bins. After we finished filming, the aircraft was returned to regular service.

For those of us who have a slight obsession with travel and aviation, and for those of us who happen to be former musicians and band geeks, United hit the spot on this one.
