I was looking at flights this morn on flightaware.com and I notice that where UAL flights were listed (ORD to Heathrow in this case), there was a Star Wars logo next to the listed flight instead of the UAL logo.

United did the same thing earlier this year with Spider Man: Far From Home. This is hardly new, nor is it unique to the US. Air New Zealand has done multiple The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings safety videos.

Spider Far From Home was 2-way marketing at least. The movie had the kids flying United and going through Newark - though some idealized signage and look.
Can't imagine Star Wars will be so nice to throw a globe logo randomly into the movie...
