First Dreamliner Flight with Passengers in the U.S.

The long-awaited first Dreamliner flight carrying passengers in the U.S. has finally made its first flight, arriving at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Sunday morning.  It was a United Airlines flight, making the carrier the first in the U.S. to fly a composite-plastic-fuselage aircraft.  The plane has two aisles and is designed to be 20% more fuel efficient.  Boeing had to delay the release of the aircraft by more than three years due to production problems.

 

The Dreamliner planes will be cheaper to operate than smaller planes because of its lighter weight, with half the plane, including fuselage and wings, being made of strong, lightweight composite material rather than metal.  Starting on January 3, United will begin flying the Dreamliner on daily nonstop from Los Angeles to Narita, Japan and on March 30 they will also begin operating daily nonstop flights to Shanghai.
