United Airlines has taken delivery of its first
Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft.
United has given the MAX a new livery,
similar to its fuel-efficient Boeing Dreamliner aircraft, so that
employees and customers can more easily recognize the plane.
United expects to take delivery of two more 737
MAX 9 aircraft this month, and will have 10 737 MAX 9 aircraft by
the end of 2018.
The aircraft will enter
United's schedule on 7 June 2018 with service between the airline's hub at
Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport and five cities –
Anchorage, Alaska; Austin, Texas; Fort Lauderdale, FL; Orlando,
FL. and San Diego.
The aircraft will operate on additional routes
from Houston and Los Angeles International Airport starting 29 June
