United Airlines will operate its first post-grounding Boeing 787 Dreamliner flights in just about two weeks on May 20. And the seat maps are currently wide open.
As reported by Jack Harty for Airchive, flight UA 1 will depart from Houston on Monday May 20 at 11:00 a.m., arriving in Chicago at 1:35 p.m.
The return flight UA 2 will depart Chicago at 3:40 p.m. with an arrival back in Houston at 6:25 p.m.
The next day on May 21, United is scheduled to operate 2X daily Houston-Chicago-Houston flights until June 9, as well as add Dreamliner service on the Houston to Denver and Houston to Los Angeles routes, the latter commencing on May 24.
I doubt there will be any hoopla surrounding these flights, but I’m glad to see them on the schedule. I wouldn’t hesitate to be on one of them.
Here’s a look back at my experience on United’s inaugural Dreamliner flights on November 4, 2012:
- United Dreamliner Inaugural: UA Flight 1116 IAH to ORD
- United Dreamliner Inaugural: UA Flight 1510 ORD to IAH
- United Dreamliner Inaugural: UA Flight 1209 IAH to LAX
