  • United is investing in advancements onboard the new Dreamliner like split screen capabilities, relax mode, seatback entertainment system and movie or television recommendations.
  • The 787-10 is the first aircraft to be delivered with United’s signature all aisle access Polaris business class and United® Premium Plus seats already installed.
  • The aircraft is expected to enter service between United’s Los Angeles and Newark/New York hubs on January 7. The airline expects to take delivery of 14 787-10 aircraft.
