United accepting bookings for their 787 flights

a screen shot of a tabletUnited announced the details of the first flights of the 787 last week. As you can see, it is possible to book the 787’s first flights. United’s press release from last week:

United Airlines today announced the first international routes for the airline’s newest addition to its fleet, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. In addition to the previously-announced service from its Denver hub to Tokyo Narita, starting March 31, 2013, the airline will operate nonstop 787 service five days a week between its Houston hub and Lagos, Nigeria, beginning Jan. 7, 2013. United will also operate daily, nonstop 787 service between its Los Angeles hub and its Narita hub, beginning Jan. 3, 2013, and Los Angeles to Shanghai, beginning March 30, 2013.

United will also operate daily, nonstop 787 service from its Houston hub to Amsterdam and London Heathrow on a temporary basis. Houston to Amsterdam service begins Dec. 4, 2012, and Houston to London Heathrow service begins Feb. 4, 2013.

I flew the first 777 flight when United was the launch customer for the product, so I may be tempted to try this one early on, but probably not the first day.


  1. Note that there will be a couple months of domestic service out of IAH before the AMS route begins. Not sure if they will be in the GDS tomorrow as some are saying, but they should be announced soon.
