United Airlines has painted their Flagship Flight 001 744 in special colors to celebrate the release of Rush Hour 2 featuring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

The link above will lead to the article from Yahoo News.

This marks the first time a movie is being premiered on board a flight in 40 years. I seriously hope they are using PTV's for this event, anythign less whould just not do.

The reason United Airlines chose to participate was since the flight flies between LAX and HKG - home to the two cities where Rush Hour 1 and Rush Hour 2 were filmed respectively.

Can't wait to watch in in theatres, especially since gorgeous Zhang Ziyi is in it.

How soon before we can feast our eyes on this special scheme?!

Will this specially painting UA 744 be only on United flight 1 routes? I'd love to see it at IAD.

UNless they peel the stickers upon arrival at Hong Kong, the plane will either shed it's new skin at LHR or IAD, unless it goes back to LAX and makes another trip under the same name

hkgspotter1 and sdate747,

What stickers are you talking about? Why do they have to be removed?
