Experience nonstop Dreamliner service from Australia to the United States with United Airlines

Dreamliner

 

United Airlines began nonstop service from Australia to the United States in 1986 and will celebrate 30 years of service in Australia in February 2016. Today, United serves Sydney with nonstop flights from San Francisco and Los Angeles; and Melbourne with nonstop flights from Los Angeles. The airline offers Australian customers more than 200 daily connections via its San Francisco and Los Angeles hubs to over 90 destinations across the U.S.

In March 2016, United will introduce new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft to replace Boeing 777-200 on its daily Sydney–San Francisco and Sydney–Los Angeles services. The airline already operates its Melbourne-Los Angeles route using the Dreamliner. The 787-9 has a total of 252 seats in two cabins – 48 in United BusinessFirst, with seats arranged in a 2-2-2 configuration, and 204 in United Economy, including 88 Economy Plus seats with up to 12.7cm extra legroom and increased personal space. All seats have access to power outlets and customers can enjoy satellite-based Wi-Fi throughout their journey.

The 787 Dreamliner is revolutionizing the flying experience for United customers and crews while delivering unprecedented operating efficiency, comfort and lower emissions. Customers experience greater comfort with improved lighting, bigger windows, larger overhead bins, lower cabin altitude and enhanced ventilation systems, among other passenger-friendly features. The aircraft’s use of lightweight composites, together with its modern engines and improved aerodynamic design, allow it to fly farther, faster and more efficiently than similar-sized conventional aircraft.
