United Airlines Puts First North American Dreamliner In The Air
Over the weekend, United Airlines put the first of 50 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in the air. Said to be the most technologically advanced aircraft ever built, the 787 will initially be used by United on international flights to Asia, Africa and Europe. But first, a series of domestic flights will showcase the aircraft around the United States.
"As the North American launch customer, we are delighted to be getting our first 787 Dreamliner," said Jeff Smisek, president and chief executive of United in a Seattle Post Intelligencer article." As we continue to build the world's leading airline, we are excited for our customers and co-workers to experience this game-changing aircraft."
"United now begins a new chapter with the 787 Dreamliner," said Smisek, "the most technologically advanced commercial jetliner ever built."
Here is video of that first 787 Dreamliner being rolled out of the paint shop at Boeing late last week:
