Competing Holiday Videos look mighty similar


Did United Airlines and American Airlines hire the same creative team for their holiday videos this year? Both were officially released this week and, well, let’s just say there are some striking similarities, complete with the in-flight safety video theme.

I’ve been led to believe that United is showing its version in-flight on equipped aircraft; dunno about AA’s plans for such.

  1. My thoughts precisely. I first saw United’s video a few days ago and thought it was okay. Then today I got an email from AA with a link to the video and immediately noticed the thematic resemblance. I don’t actually know who released their video first, but overall I think these videos are a huge waste of their corporate marketing money…
