Images of the Polaris (business class) layout on United Airlines’ new Boeing B787-10 Dreamliners have been unveiled after the company received the first aircraft, with 14 more due for delivery over the next two years – an average of about one every seven weeks.
United also announced the first European routes for the aircraft will begin in March 2019 linking New York Newark with Dublin, Paris, Frankfurt, Tel Aviv, Barcelona and Brussels, with London expected to follow later.
Vice-president of international network Patrick Quayle said: "United is proud to offer more seats between New York and Europe than any other carrier and on our Boeing B787-10 aircraft based in New York Newark.”
United was the first North American airline to take delivery of the B787-10, and is also the first airline to have the entire family of the Boeing B787-8, B787-9 and B787-10 Dreamliners in its fleet.
At 18ft longer than the B787-9, the B787-10 has been configured by United with 44 United Polaris (business class) seats, all with aisle access, 21 Premium Plus seats, 54 Economy Plus seats and 199 Economy seats.
Before being rostered on to the Europe routes, the aircraft will operate between Newark, Los Angeles and San Francisco from January.
