Will the Flight Crew wear Star Wars inspired uniforms? How about decorations inside the plane? :-P

Do Jar Jar next with the wings as his ears! Everyone loves Jar Jar!

Are the Star Wars films among the in-flight entertainment choices?

Pretty cool graphics on a plane that hasn't yet been painted yet. I first saw this on Saturday at the following link and was really impressed at the fact it looks so real yet it just computer graphics of what the plane will look like.

Third party companies have had 787s for MS Flight Simulator for a couple of years now. The templates for "re-skinning" the plane in your own custom paint job are fairly straightforward. It would be a quick process (probably about an hour) to put together this "skin" then take screenshots from various angles in the air. And not a single drop of jet fuel would be used in the process! :-)

Jar Jar Binks comments are vapid, cliche, and lack class. This is a cool thing for ANA to do for Star Wars fans. Is that flying domestically or overseas. Since Disney has a big presence in Japan I wonder if they will take the opportunity to expand on the Theme parks here with Star Wars themed areas?

Do Chewbacca next!

"Princess Leia slaves serving as flight attendants?"

Hee hee!
