United Airlines’ newest aircraft type – the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner – is now flying paying passengers for the carrier.
United Flight 2418 – the airline’s first revenue flight with the “Dash 10” – departed from Los Angeles at 8:49 a.m. local time (11:49 a.m. ET) en route to Newark, New Jersey.
The debut comes as United starts putting the 787-10 on some of its existing flights that connect the carrier’s hubs at Newark Liberty and Los Angeles. In addition to the LAX-Newark flights that begin today, United’s 787-10s will begin to pick up some of its Newark-San Francisco flights starting in February.
The 787-10s expand to international service in March, when United adds the jet to routes from Newark to the European cities of Frankfurt, Germany; Paris Charles de Gaulle; Barcelona, Spain; Brussels and Dublin. United also will fly the jet between Newark and Tel Aviv, Israel.
