American Airlines, Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Marvel Studios unveiled the next element in their collaboration, yesterday—an aircraft wrapped with a special graphic featuring Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War heroes alongside the Stand Up To Cancer logo and images of SU2C researchers and American Airline team member cancer survivors.
The custom-wrapped American Airlines A321T aircraft will be in service between Los Angeles and New York. The graphic, which is more than 50 feet long, features Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War heroes: Doctor Strange, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America and Black Panther; American Airlines LAX-based Customer Service agent and three-time breast cancer survivor Shandra Fitzpatrick, LAX-based Flight Attendant Michelle Ballard, Miami-based Fleet Service crew chief Juan Barquero, and Chicago-based Captain Ron France; and Stand Up To Cancer Scientific Advisor Dr. Phillip A. Sharp and SU2C researchers Dr. Vinod Balachandran, Dr. Marcela Maus and Dr. Kimberly Stegmaier.
This unprecedented integration across American Airlines, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War and SU2C is designed to raise awareness on the ground and in the air, underscoring the message of collaboration in battling this terrible disease.
