UA Team USA Commercial

Once again, UA is the official airline of the US Olympic team so as usual they've put out a new commercial to run during the games. I have to say I'm really fond of it, it's similar in style to the ones they ran for London but this time features the athletes all onboard one plane. I don't remember if the London one had actual athletes or just actors but this one has skater Gracie Gold, and luger Erin Hamlin among others.

And Jim Harbaugh. Which I don't understand at all.

But it's a really good ad, which UA will put out from time to time. I just wish they put that much effort into actually running the airline.

I like it, up until the point where the flight attendant walks down the aisle with her long hair out. Nasty, don't want her serving my food! I wouldn't want any food handler having their hair out like that! Surely UA also wants to portray a more professional image of it's staff too, with more professional grooming? If the hair isn't in the food, she at least would be touching her hair constantly to get it out of her face as she plates it in Business or First...

Especially the dinosaur UA flight attendants who have all the gray hairs falling out at their age.

Really nice ad, and I can say I never get tired of the music. It would be nice if UA ran like the ad. Totally opposite, IMHO.

I love the hockey team rushing the gate - sorta like what happens at every gate flight minus the protective gear. And the ice skating flight attendant. Cute.

Does UA actually have any flights in to Sochi???

It is a commercial and a good one. Last time I checked, no ski-jumpers were flying the baggage ramp either...

Loved it - rivals the BA advert for the London 2012 games as one of my favourite airline ads.

I particularly like the ski-jumper being loaded into the hold - very clever.
