In addition to United’s signature all-aisle access Polaris Business Class and Premium Plus seats, United is investing in several customer-friendly advancements onboard. The aircraft features updated lighting patterns that mimic sunrise and sunset and are designed to help customers in each cabin to fall asleep and wake up more adjusted to new time zones. A brand-new seatback entertainment system is also available at every seat, which includes:

  • Split screen capabilities allowing customers to watch a movie and view the flight map simultaneously
  • A relax mode for customers who want to customise a selection of soothing videos and relaxing audio playlists
  • The world’s most extensive suite of accessibility features on a seatback entertainment system, which accommodates any level of vision, as well as provides support for customers with hearing and mobility issues
  • Movie and television recommendations based on remaining flight time and previously watched content

United previously announced that its first B787-10 aircraft will begin operating between New York/Newark and Los Angeles and San Francisco in January 2019.

The B787-10 is 18 feet longer than the B787-9 and can carry more passengers and more cargo. The -10 aircraft can fly up to 6,430 nautical miles, while using 20% less fuel than older generation aircraft. United currently operates 25 B787-9 and 12 B787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. The airline expects to take delivery of 14 B787-10 aircraft over the next two years.
