United Airlines Policy on Watching Films Rated R or Above

On the United website, it notes that content should only be watched if it has “an MPAA rating of “R” or less” and requests passenger discretion so that “children seated near you aren’t able to see scenes with violence or adult themes.”

We request that United updates this language here, and elsewhere so that it is visible when a passenger purchases their ticket, to specifically note that “pornographic content, whether in magazine, image, or video format” is prohibited to view during a United flight.

Further, it appears that United does not consistently edit nudity out of the movies it shows on planes. For example, below is a scene shown on a United Airlines airplane in January of 2019.
