In addition, United Airlines is investing on-board, with updated light patterns to mimic sunrise and sunset to help passengers adjust, along with a new In-Flight Entertainment system to be installed – featuring split screen capability, a “relax” function for those who want audio playlists to fall asleep to, provision for hearing and mobility issues, as well as some AI into how long you have left in flight, and what can be watched.
The Boeing 787-10 aircraft will initially debut on the Newark to Los Angeles/Newark to San Francisco pair – before heading onto Europe.
