United Airlines to reintroduce Dreamliner flights

United Airlines is preparing to reintroduce Boeing 787 Dreamliner flights on its domestic and international routes.

Boeing has already converted two of United’s six Dreamliners to the new FAA standards and will soon convert the remainder of United’s fleet.

The airline has scheduled flights to begin on May 20th 2013 on routes from Houston to other domestic hubs.

United will begin international 787 flying on the Denver-Tokyo route on June 10th 2013.

“Our customers responded extremely well when we introduced the 787, and we know they’ll welcome it back,” said Pete McDonald, United’s chief operations officer.

“Boeing and the FAA were diligent in their work to fix the battery issue, and now the Dreamliner is poised to fly the missions we planned and provide our customers with the features and reliability they want on their long-haul flights.”
