Infographic Alert: United's 787 Dreamliner Versus 'Other Aircraft'

August 27, 2012 at 12:40 PM | by | ()

It feels like we've been talking about the Boeing 787 Dreamliner since the beginning of time. It has been a whopping eight years since the first order for the new airplane came in, when, in 2004, Japan-based ANA signed up for fifty.

Though there were only 3 787s placed in the hands of airlines in 2011, this year should see some 15 delivered, including the first one to a US carrier—United.

Even though they're not quite sure when that first plane will land in their laps, United is psyching itself up anyway. They're not doing a flashmob and there's no viral ad campaign for it quite yet, but they have done the next best thing: made an infographic.

Note at the very end that United reassures that the Dreamliner will eventually be equipped with in-flight WiFi. Sweet—now to actually get the airplane first...

Free mile seat availability

Wonder if they're going to be as generous with free mile award seats on this plane as they are on others. United is for now the most generous vs Delta, American, and US Airways for award seat availability http://milecards.com/4325/best-and-worst-airlines-for-miles-with-free-travel-in-2012/
