United Airlines also Announces Boeing 787-10 Aircraft will Operate Between New York/Newark and Six International Destinations

As of March 2019, United United Airlines will operate their newest Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner on six trans-Atlantic routes from its New York/Newark hub. The first North American airline to take delivery of the 787-10, they are also the first airline in the world to have the entire family of Boeing's 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10 Dreamliners in its fleet. 

"United is proud to offer more seats between New York and Europe than any other carrier and our Boeing 787-10 aircraft based in New York/Newark will enable us to connect even more New York City customers to Europe and beyond," said Patrick Quayle, United's Vice President of International Network.

"We are thrilled to announce six international cities that will be served with this aircraft and we look forward to offering our customers all of the comforts and services of our most advanced aircraft."

In addition to United's signature all aisle access Polaris business class and United Premium Plus seats, United is investing in several customer-friendly advancements on-board. The aircraft features updated lighting patterns that mimic sunrise and sunset and are designed to help customers in each cabin fall asleep and wake up more adjusted to new time zones. A brand new seatback entertainment system is also available at every seat, which includes:

  • Split screen capabilities allowing customers to watch a movie and view the flight map simultaneously.
  • A relax mode for customers who want to customise a selection of soothing videos and relaxing audio playlists.
  • The world's most extensive suite of accessibility features on a seatback entertainment system, which accommodates any level of vision, as well as provides support for customers with hearing and mobility issues.
  • Movie and television recommendations based on remaining flight time and previously watched content.
