Put your baggin’s in the overhead bin?
Hobbits are taking to the skies once again, but instead of riding giant eagles, this time they are flying Air New Zealand.
The airline has cut a two-year deal with film studios New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to promote the two upcoming movies, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again.
Passengers to and from the United Kingdom and North America will get to fly on two film-branded Boeing 777 aircraft and watch a special edition of the in-flight safety video, both made with the help of Weta workshop.
Not as fun as it sounded at first, huh? We pictured redecorated planes with round doors, cozy wooden interiors, fireplaces, second breakfasts, filght attendants with pints of ale and hairy feet…
