As United Airlines celebrate 30 years of serving the Australia market without interruption, the airline is planning big changes. These plans include making Australia United’s very first all-Dreamliner market, switching to Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner airliners for all trans-pacific routes, a follow up to the success of the Melbourne-Los Angeles nonstop service where passenger have already been benefiting from the revolutionary aircraft.

The switch to an all-Dreamliner airline will begin on March 27th and 28th of this year, ahead of more big changes nearby as the Star Alliance member prepares to launch nonstop Boeing 787-7 Dreamliner flights between Auckland and San Fransisco on July 3rd (subject to Government approval).

So why the fuss over the 787 Dreamliner? Well, as an advanced airliner it offers unparalleled fuel efficiency and range flexibility, allowing carriers such as United to present passengers with a substantially improved flying experience, boasting unprecedented operating efficiency, comfort, and lower emissions.

Features include improved lighting, bigger windows, larger overhead bins, lower cabin altitude, and enhanced ventilation systems, which actually seem to help fight against jet lag. There’s also the option of in-flight WiFi at a flat-rate of US$17 for the entire flight.
