United Airlines has announced six cities that will be the first international destinations to welcome its new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. Services from the carrier’s New York/Newark hub to Frankfurt, Paris/Charles de Gaulle and Dublin are among those featuring the 787-10 in the 2019 summer schedule.
Ahead of its international roll-out, United’s latest aircraft will undertake transcontinental domestic operations from Newark to Los Angeles and San Francisco to assist with staff training and familiarisation.
The Chicago-based company accepted delivery of its first 787-10 in early November, registered as N14001 (c/n 40936), making United the first airline anywhere in the world to operate all three variants of the Dreamliner series. As well as the November example, a further 13 of the type are due to be delivered before the end of 2020.
