Star Wars World Premiere: Now boarding at gate...

In a coup that's sure to excite envy among both frequent fliers and Star Wars fanatics, Air France has scored a coup: a deal to show the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens on four U.S.-to-Paris flights on Dec. 15, days before the theatre release.


Air France is getting into the Star Wars cult a bit, too: passengers will be "required" to register as either Jedi or Sith, and warned to leave light-sabers in checked baggage, not carry-ons.


Grab your tickets now for the four flights...and sorry, no senior discount. And no word on whether AF will come up with fresh popcorn. The flights are AF83 SFO-CDG, AF65 LAX-
CDG and two JFK-CDG flights, AF09 and AF11.


The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

Good promotional idea for Air France, and there will surely be some people who get on those flights just to see the premier.


But the idea of seeing a Star Wars movie on a 6 inch screen does little to excite me.  I'll wait for big screen release, thanks!
