Seems like UA's inaugural flight between IAD and PEK departed without a hitch.

Anyone know if any political bigwigs were on board? Seems like there have been a lot of trade missions lately...

I'm sad that the article got the flight time back wrong. It leaves and gets in on the same day.

Are they really operating a capacity of 347 pax on the 744?

That is the capacity of a UA 744, yes. It has a large business section, and Economy Plus

The return arrives at IAD at 7:46 in the evening. Where does the aircraft go from there? Does it then turn for London, Frankfurt or SFO? I can't imagine it just sits unused at Dulles overnight and not earning revenue all night long. Does anyone have the complete rotation?

I bet it changes, however, at that late hour the choices are pretty limited to Frankfurt, London, or back West.

It looks as if it is staying in IAD for the night, only to return to PEK the next day as there are no more 744 departures that late in the evening. The PEK IAD flight is likely operated by the inbound ORD PEK or SFO PEK aircraft, though.
