Per the LA Times, the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner routes will be:
Houston (IAH) to Amsterdam (AMS) starting December 4
Houston (IAH) to London (LHR) starting February 4
Los Angeles (LAX) to Tokyo (NRT) starting January 3
Los Angeles (LAX) to Shanghai (PVG) starting March 30
These are in addition to the already announced:
Denver (DEN) to Tokyo (NRT)
Houston (IAH) to Lagos (LOS)
Despite the announcement, united.com has not been updated to show the new aircraft on the routes.
I stumbled upon the news while researching a post about getting an award on the Dreamliner.
Also while researching the post, I was searching DEN-NRT and NRT-DEN on expertflyer and couldn’t find business class space in either direction on any day after the 787 starts operating the route on March 31.
United’s BusinessFirst features a great seat and bed that I enjoyed between London and LAX, so I’ll definitely try to snag one of these awards soon.
