United Employee Needs Your Help (light hearted)

Hi, I work for United Airlines. I work in Willis mostly in an obscure department within the TechOps group. (there are UA people tasked to monitor FT, I am not one of them) Like most people I am working from home. United uses MS Teams to have virtual meetings and they just opened up MS Teams for custom backgrounds. Here is where I need your help. I would like a funny United background for my meetings. So, if you have any funny pictures preferably related to United Airlines, please post them below or you can e-mail me at [email protected]

Thank you in advance

Thanks there are some good ones in there. Nope, no commercial activity, just trying to brighten up the morning meetings.

Thank you to you and your fellow United colleagues. This must be very tough for all of you. I for one am looking forward to getting back to flying as soon as possible and seeing and speaking with the front line employees knowing the backroom employees provide invaluable assistance to help get passengers where they need to go.

Please stay safe and well.

Some of these may make good zoom backgrounds!

Seat 1A on Boeing 747. My favorite seat of entire United fleet.

Taken on July 14, 2014 ORD-PVG UA 835.

Someone on another forum was looking for a picture of a FC or business class seat photographed from the front that could be positioned so that it looked like the person was doing the meeting while sitting in a premium cabin seat on an aircraft. There might be some UA promotional pictures advertising their premium cabins that would be taken from the right perspective for this to look convincing.

Bonus points if there's a glass of champagne etc. in the picture, but this might not seem businesslike if it's too realistic.

You mean something like this: https://assets.rbl.ms/17637200/origin.jpg

Probably could crop the Saks bedding or position oneself so that it blocked the bedding.

(edit: or use this one without the bedding: https://assets.rbl.ms/22910813/origin.jpg: its path is from the AV Geeks post a few days ago: https://hub.united.com/upgrade-zoom-...45610091.html)
