For the first time ever, there’s a Dreamliner in the fleet of a U.S. airline.
That became official over the weekend, when United Airlines officially took ownership of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner. United had previously shown off the jet during a public unveiling last month, but the aircraft was officially handed over to the airline until Saturday.
As United’s first Dreamliners are introduced to its fleet, they will be based at the carrier’s Houston hub and will enter into previously announced domestic service in November and international service in December. United is planning to operate its inaugural 787 commercial flight from Houston to Chicago Nov. 4 at 7:25 a.m. CT.
