|Quoting ROGERBCN (Reply 2):|
The interior looks nice and very modern, a real pity they kept the old pattern on seats, couldn't they think of anything else?
|Quoting The777Man (Reply 7):|
nothing at all yesterday at LAX, not even an announcement to identify the event.
|Quoting ORDnHKG (Reply 12):|
Why would there be anything at LAX ? It had already said the inaugural is IAH-ORD, not IAH-LAX.
|Quoting The777Man (Reply 15):|
It was the inaugural 787 flight from LAX of ANY airline. Surely some banners, a cake or at the very least an announcement could have taken place. At least an announcement was made on day 2 that this was a special new aircraft : )
|Quoting ORDnHKG (Reply 16):|
Then that is LAX's problem, not UA, the only thing matter to UA is the inaugural, first revenue flight of the plane, not the 2nd or the 3rd.

This looks exactly like the old Continental seats; which don't look all that great. Moreover, I really think United needs to come out with the new uniforms to replace the old Continental and UA ones (The Champagne Toast photo). I've heard that the UA pilots are a little peeved that the 787 will be flown exclusively by CO pilots. I think the new uniforms might help with eliminating that visual difference and perhaps the cultural one.
