United Airlines announced plans on Monday to operate some of its transcontinental flights linking the New York metropolitan area to San Francisco and Los Angeles with Boeing Dreamliner 787-10 aircraft.

Dreamliner service will go into effect on January 7, 2019 on select flights between Newark Liberty International Airport and both San Francisco International and Los Angeles International airports.

United is the launch customer in the United States for the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. The largest Dreamliner to date, the aircraft will feature 44 United Polaris business-class seats, 21 United Premium Plus premium-economy seats, 54 premium economy-lite seats, and 199 seats in coach.

The Polaris cabin will feature the airline’s new fully lie-flat business-class seats with direct-aisle access as well as Polaris amenities such as Saks Fifth Avenue pillows and blankets and a Polaris-specific menu.

The 787-10 Dreamliner will operate on two flights from Newark Liberty International Airport to Los Angeles, namely the 7 a.m. and the 4 p.m., and on one flight to San Francisco International Airport, which will also depart at 4 p.m.
