Join Us Online As We Join Sheryl Crow Onboard
||:: Late-Breaking News
(Posted: May 3, 2004)
For one flight, and one flight only, Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, Sheryl Crow, will be playing to a sitting-room only audience (until, that is, the captain turns off the seatbelt sign) aboard a United airplane traveling from Chicago to Los Angeles in a first-of-its-kind concert that will launch a new partnership between United Mileage Plus and Sony.
"I like to think of it as taking in-flight entertainment to all new heights," says Dave Keenan, vice president of UAL Loyalty Services.
Sony is soon to launch a new online music store, which will, among other things, allow United Mileage Plus members to spend their miles for music downloads. Members will be able to download 100 songs at a redemption cost of 10,000 miles -- an innovative benefit that is sure to appeal to music-loving frequent travelers. Full details and redemption rules on the "Music for Miles" program will be available in early May on the http://www.mileageplusmusic.com Web site.
After checking his beloved iPod at the gate, WebFlyer's Randy Petersen will join several other invited guests on the flight and will enjoy a 40-minute acoustic set by Crow and an accompanying guitarist.
You weren't invited, you say? Not to worry. Before, during and after the event Randy will post updates and pictures from the event at http://www.webflyer.com/liveflyer/index.php so you too can enjoy the experience. You'll feel like you're right there in his seat watching and listening to Sheryl Crow, only without the hassles of reclining seat backs and shared armrests.
So grab your favorite drink and a lighter, and join us onboard (or online, as the case may be).

Sheryl Crow is an embarassment to this country. Her anti-american stances denigrate herself and UAL in this event.
