Maybe they'll have both Cris Tucker and Jackie Chan painted on the fusalage like what VS did with their 747 on Austin Powers. Or they could make the 747 look cool and put some billboard sized chinese symbols that spells UAL. They could do a biligual planes like AI one side in the english language and the other in chinese.

Well there is a UA 747-400 in the movie Rush Hour. No one in the movie cared, but it just about knocked my socks off when they filmed the UA 747 on approach to LAX. Don't you love when they film great shots of airliners on the movie screen?! Wish they did that more.

I did find it funny how they mannaged to to have a 2-x-x coach seating arrangement on that first 744 in Rush Hour I. Of course the second one they were on obviously had a 2 by-window seating arrangement cause they were in fc.

Just got back from the movie theater... UA 747 painted in their newest livery with Star Alliance logo -- didn't look any different to me...

For 1 and a half hours the aircraft had large pictures on it. They removed them before the flight left for Hong Kong.

SJC>SFO; The first movie featured them in 1st class. Look at the ending carefully.

Virgin- I'm not an idiot, I know they were in first class at the end of the movie. I suggest you look carefully earlier in the movie. Chan is supposed to be being sent home some half-way through the movie, and Tucker boards the plane and sits next to him to get him to stay in the US. They are in 2 seats on side (in COACH), slightly after the aircraft is shown to be a 747. Believe me....

SJC>SFO. I didn't say you we're an idiot did I? I now know the scene in which you were talking about. I had thought you we're talking about the ending to Rush Hour 1 in which they both are sitting in 1st class. That landing of the UAL 747 kicks ass along with the 1st class and the interiors down to the FA matches with UAL. A great way to promote HKG-LAX 747-400 service. I wonder if the lucky FA woman in the plane is an actual UAL FA?

has anyone seen the video for the song "Area Codes" by Ludacris feat. Nate Dogg? It is on the Rush Hour 2 soundtrack and it is aviation themed video. There is a parked silver-metallic and orange plane in the background and they show luggage and baggage carts and stuff.
