CBS, United Airlines Launch FRIENDS WITH BETTER SEATS Promotion

Today, CBS and United Airlines are launching a "Friends with Better Seats" campaign on flights from JFK to LAX to promote the Network's new comedy series FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES, which premieres tonight.

Lucky passengers on select p.s Premium Service flights will arrive at their gate to a big surprise: an upgrade to BusinessFirst Class - a first for a United Airlines promotion - and all of the flights' passengers will receive their own FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES-branded earphones to retain for future flights as well.

FRIENDS WITH BETTER LIVES, starring Kevin Connolly, Majandra Delfino, James Van Der Beek, Zoe Lister-Jones, Brooklyn Decker and Rick Donald, is a romantic comedy about six friends at different stages in their lives - married, divorced, newly engaged and single - who are outwardly happy, but secretly questioning if their friends have it better.
