The Hallmark channel will have a ton of those cheesy rom-coms again this season, but none of them will be set at Denver International Airport… United Airlines checked that off the bingo card for us though! 

A 5:45-minute short-movie shot at Denver International Airport, “Love in Plane Sight,” features a couple of cameos by Santa Claus and a budding onboard romance that starts with a male character rushing to catch his plane, who ends up smacking into a fellow traveler and splashes her gingerbread latte all over her white sweater. Of course the two end up being on the same flight, where the relationship goes from there is up in the air.

The romantic comedy is on United social channels, the airline’s website and will debut on flights Dec. 1. United spokesman Russell Carlton said in an email that the short film will be among the holiday movies and TV shows available for free through the airline’s inflight entertainment.

United said shooting the holiday movie in Denver was an opportunity for United to feature on of its fastest growing hubs, where it has invested nearly $1 billon. The movie shows one of the actors using United’s bag drop shortcut, where customers using the United app can skip the check-in line and drop their bags at a separate location. The movie also shows United’s new gates on the B concourse… So in other words it’s a creative commercial.
