United is going to expand its Houston Intercontinental to London Heathrow route to 3 times a day.
The new combined timetable looks something like this:

From the seatmaps, these services will be operated by United’s Boeing 767-300ER aircraft (which are aren’t that bad – escpecilly if you’re in United BusinessFirst).
They will feature:
- 6 United Global First Seats

Its another useful connection for those who need to head over to Houston and beyond, with reasonably timed flights and flight times, allowing for reasonable connections at Houston.
