United Airlines has confirmed it will use a 787-9 Dreamliner on its direct service between Heathrow and Los Angeles.
The new Dreamliner service will operate from 6th April next year, with the first flight taking off from Los Angeles.
The Dreamliner is renowned for its spacious cabin, whereby passengers can enjoy larger windows, roomier seating, larger luggage storage and LED lightening that simulates a day to help overcome fatigue and jet lag. What’s more, the modern Dreamliner operates with a lower cabin altitude, which provides cleaner air.
As well as offering 204 economy seating, the aircraft will also offer 48 seats in its United BusinessFirst seating class, along with 88 Economy Plus seating.
Speaking about the new service, Bob Schumacher, United’s Managing Director Sales – U.K. & Ireland, said, “We are excited to introduce the 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft on our nonstop London Heathrow-Los Angeles service. Our customers will notice a real difference on board this revolutionary aircraft. This will be our third Dreamliner flying from Heathrow, as we already operate two 787-8s on our Houston route.”
