It’s Wednesday, and it’s time for some Airplane Art Extra.
Quickly following behind the Air New Zealand Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner rolling out of the Boeing paint shop, another one has rolled out, this time in the markings of United Airlines.
This aircraft – like the Air New Zealand Boeing 787-9 will be joining the test aircraft cadre being used to certify the plane for passenger use.
Once it enters service, one of the first routes it will be tasked with is operating six times a week between Los Angeles and Melbourne from 26th October 2014 (subject to release to operation).
These aircraft will be configured with:
- 48 BusinessFirst Seats
- 88 Economy Plus Seats
- 116 Economy Seats
Total 252 seats.
Like its 787-8 compatriot, it looks rather smart in the United paintwork. Hopefully, the plane will be just as nice to fly aboard.
