Star Wars Jet

The average person gets excited about Star Wars and changes their profile picture to Jabba the Hutt or something, but when you’re a big and successful airline you have to do a little better than that. So it is with All Nippon Airways, who recently unveiled their Star Wars Jet, a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner painted to look like R2-D2 and bearing the Star Wars logo.

The Star Wars Jet was recently revealed on an official ANA YouTube channel, with a video showing the majestic droid/jet flying through the air. ANA says “the R2-D2 character has a reputation for strong, reliable service—one of the hallmarks of ANA’s 5-star quality service,” although I’d like to see an ANA plane get out of even a tenth of the jams R2-D2 has managed to escape from.

You can see the All Nippon Airways Star Wars Jet in the video below, and if you’re flying to or from Japan this fall you just might get to see the inside of it in person. For more from ANA, check out their official website right here.
