Boeing 786 Debuts On LA-Tokyo Route
United Airlines introduced daily nonstop 787 Dreamliner service between its hub at Los Angeles International Airport and its hub at Tokyo Narita International Airport as of Thursday, January 3. The service – previously operated with a 777 aircraft – is the first regularly-scheduled international route operated using United's 787 Dreamliner.
"We are delighted to offer our customers in Los Angeles and Tokyo the comfort and spectacular flying experience of our new Boeing Dreamliner aircraft," said Jim Mueller, United's vice president of Atlantic and Pacific Sales. "We look forward to offering our customers the opportunity to experience the Dreamliner on additional international flights in the future."
The flight, UA32, departed Los Angeles at 1115 PST, arriving in Tokyo Narita at 1610 the next day (local time). The return flight, UA33, will depart Tokyo Narita daily at 1755 (local time), arriving in Los Angeles at 1035 PST the same day.
United's 787 Dreamliner is configured with 36 seats in United BusinessFirst, 70 seats in United Economy Plus and 113 seats in United Economy. The airline says aircraft will "revolutionize the flying experience for United customers and crews" while delivering "unprecedented operating efficiency, comfort and lower emissions."
