What airline does Peter Parker take to get to Europe in ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’? United Airlines, and that’s not just happenstance. A partnership has been formed between the film (from Sony and Marvel Studios/Disney) and the airline, so not only are their planes shown in the film, but Spidey and some of his costars appear in the pre-flight safety video, and travelers are gifted with a sweet ‘Spider-Man’ amenity bag that contains a sleep mask, socks, napkins, earplugs, a toothbrush and toothpaste and more. And the items come in a very nice embossed travel bag.
Here are some tweets from impressed travelers.

On my flight back home and it seems United has partnered with Far From Home so they have these neat Spider-Man napkins pic.twitter.com/IzIt3gn14i

The last poster seems to have only gotten a napkin. It appears that United is only giving out the amenity case to travelers on long flights or possibly only in first class or possibly business class.
In a press release, United Airlines’ vice president of marketing, Mark Krolick stated:
“For decades, Spider-Man has consistently shown the importance of using power to do good and to keep the public safe. We also believe that our greatest responsibility is to keep our customers and crew safe on board our aircraft. We are excited to have Spider-Man and his friends, along with our employees, bring new attention to the inflight safety video and creatively engage customers on such an important announcement.”
In order to assure safety to passengers, United has spiced up the typically boring in-flight safety video with appearances of Spider-Man, Hemky Madera as shop keeper Mr. Delmar, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, and Toni Revolori as Eugene “Flash” Thompson. There is even a Stan Lee cameo, even though there reportedly won’t be one in the actual movie.
On the negative side, the Spider-Man interactions might make the safety video more entertaining, but it also makes it a lot longer. But you can watch for yourself below:
