Before Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” flies into a movie theater near you, an Incredibles themed plane may land at a nearby airport. This weekend Alaska Airlines unveiled a special-edition plane featuring our favorite family of supers. This was the first Pixar themed plane for Alaska and it’s now in the air serving customers along Alaska’s service routes across the continent and even to Hawaii.
“This plane will delight guests of all ages from San Francisco to New York and beyond,” said Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of brand marketing and advertising. “Like all of us at Alaska Airlines, many of our guests have anxiously awaited ‘Incredibles 2.’ We’re honored to take this incredible family to new heights and share the imagery with travelers across our expansive route network.”
Decked out in their Incredible super suits, the Parr family—Bob, Helen, Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack—spans the fuselage. Guests boarding the “Incredibles 2” plane will see a logo when they board. An image of the raccoon from the film, Jack-Jack’s nemesis, will delight guests seated over the wings.
“These characters are among the most celebrated characters in the Pixar family,” said Incredibles 2 producers Nicole Grindle and John Walker. “After waiting 14 years to see them on the big screen again, fans will love seeing them on their Alaska Airlines plane, too.”
Here’s a quick clip of the plane as it takes on its Incredibles 2 form:
Alaska’s Disneyland Resort-themed planes include the “Spirit of Disneyland II,” launched in 2009; and the “Adventure of Disneyland Resort” Cars Land at Disney California Adventure plane, which made its debut in 2013.
We’d love to get a flight on any of the Disney or Pixar themed planes. Anyone know how to make sure you’re booked for one?
