United Becomes First ‘Complete’ 787 Operator
United Airlines flew its new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner on its first scheduled service on Monday on a trans-continental domestic flight.
The introduction of the -10, the largest member of the 787 family, means United is the first airline to operate all three Dreamliner models.
The first scheduled flight was a Los Angeles LAX to Newark Liberty service. A second 787-10 will enter service next month on the San Francisco-Newark route.
United plans to introduce 787-10 international flights in March from its New York Newark hub. Frankfurt and Tel Aviv will be served daily starting March 30, Paris and Barcelona, also daily, launch April 29, and Brussels and Dublin from May 22.
