United Airlines' Boeing 787-10 to Fly Between New York and Six European Destinations

United Airlines will operate its newest Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner on six trans-Atlantic routes from its New York/Newark hub beginning March 2019.

The six routes are: Frankfurt (FRA), Tel Aviv (TLV), Paris (CDG), Barcelona (BCN), Brussels (BRU) and Dublin (DUB).

United was the first North American airline to take delivery of the 787-10, and is 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.

 Tickets will be available for purchase on 3 December 2018, for travel beginning 30 March 2019.

"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."

United's Boeing 787-10 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 customize a selection of soothing videos and relaxing audio playlists.

- An extensive suite of accessibility features 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.

United's first 787-10 aircraft will begin operating between New York/Newark and Los Angeles and San Francisco in January 2019.

The Boeing 787-10 is 18 feet longer than the 787-9 and can carry more passengers and more cargo. The -10 aircraft can fly up to 6,430 nautical miles, while using 20 percent less fuel than older generation airplanes. United currently operates 25 787-9 and 12 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. The airline expects to take delivery of 14 787-10 aircraft over the next two years.
