787-10 Dreamliner is coming to Frankfurt

Starting at the end of March 2019 United Airlines will operate a Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner on the route between Frankfurt and New York/Newark (UA960/961). The aircraft of the latest generation has 44 all aisle access seats in United Polaris Business Class, which provide even more privacy with the suite-like concept. In addition, 21 seats are available in the new United Premium Plus, 54 in Economy Plus and 199 in Economy. To make it easier for passengers to fall asleep and wake up in all cabins, the lighting concept has been improved so that passengers can adapt better and faster to the new time zone. United is the first airline in the world to have the entire family of Boeing’s 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10 Dreamliners in its fleet. The Boeing 787-10 can fly up to 6,430 nautical miles, while using 20 percent less fuel than older generation airplanes. The airline expects to take delivery of 14 787-10 aircraft over the next two years.
