I think it's great that it is scheduled for transcontinental service!!

I believe they'll deploy it on European routes from EWR once these transcon proving flights are over.


I think UA said six TATL routes will be flown with the 787-10 by the start of the Summer 2019 schedule. I don't see the 787-10 becoming a mainstay of the LAX/SFO market from EWR other than 1 or 2 rotations.


UA should have 9 787-10s on property by summer 2019, so I think it's quite feasible that we'll see a handful of TATL routes plus a rotation or two on EWR-SFO/LAX.

What are the 787 maintenance bases for UA? I assume SFO handles most work? UA may keep EWR-SFO around for that purpose as well.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

From another thread it seems that they ordered more 787-10


I believe UA recently ordered more 787-9s, no additional 787-10s yet. I expect they will add more 787-10s though, some of the -10s initially ordered have been converted to 787-9s as UA needed the frames quicker.


I could be wrong, but I believe that ten 787-10s were converted into the first ten 77Ws, not more 789s. Boeing needed to fill more production slots on the 777 before it winds down ahead of the 777X program, and they also wanted to free up slots on the overwhelmed 787 production line. UA supposedly got a pretty good deal for doing that swap.

There will be no "ER" treatment for -10. Boeing stated it multiple times. Any extra range will come only from weight savings or engine PIPs down the road.
777-8 is the "ER" frame to go to in the same capacity in Boeing's lineup.


Why United get 787-10... many pax, small weight = small fuel 787-10 MTOW 254,000 kg , A350-900 MTOW 265000
787-10 short routes (EWR and east coast- to Europe)
A350-900 long routes (trans pacific and west coast - europe)

I wish that chart wasn't editorialized since it's incredibly subjective and not really based on anything. Clearly all of those models are the right size for someone since they all have orders on the books.

As the chart clearly states, it explains why United chose the 787/A350 combo for the mission/replacement profile on this RFP. It isn't trying to explain the situation for all carriers.

UA has loaded a 788 for an LAX-EWR turn starting on 12/19 so any subs will probably occur on this flight.

It is a bit out of context, but the chart is what UA put together to show why they believe the A350-900 will be an effective B77E replacement compared to other aircraft on the market. That's where the 'not enough range' and 'too big' notes come from - in terms of its feasibility to replace the B77E.

Clearly, and for the most part lucky for the traveler in coach, the longest TPAC routes from ORD, EWR and IAD will be on the 359.

If I had to venture a guess, given that these are high-J frames:

EWR-LHR (select rotations)
EWR-CDG
EWR-ZRH
EWR-BCN (to take a high density B77E onto domestic duty)
EWR-MXP
EWR-MAD

I expect EWR-FRA to remain on the B77W...UA should really add a true W class to these frames and go J-W-Y+-Y with less than 350 seats.

Yes. That was taken directly from a UA investor presentation. We should frame it and show it anytime anyone says that UA will never fly the A350.

Understanding the 78J is a EWR/ORD perhaps IAH to Europe bird, has anyone played with the numbers of SFO to LHR for example? When they have enough frames, I could see this bird as an upgauge option during the summer season to LHR and/or CDG perhaps?

The 787-10 can do all UAL's USA-Europe routes that currently exist AFAIK. As for Asia, it looks like many SFO-Asia routes are easily within range. If they really want the seats on SFO-Asia, this plane will do the job.

Congrats are in order. They finally took delivery of a Boeing 787 with proper Polaris seating. I actually might give one of these a whirl while its flying EWR-LAX. I mean, what do I have to lose?


With the purchase of a business class ticket, what is UA's policy for SDC? I can get the 787-10 on the outbound but to keep the fare at $1200 RT, I would have to fly the 757 on the return. Can I SDC to the 787-10 without charge?

Assuming that you are going to be booking something like a P fare, it's unlikely that there will be [cheap] fare classes available for the SDC.

I am 100% sure because I've been on the aircraft earlier this fall at Boeing's CHS facility. United 787-10s have crew rest facilities for both pilots and FA's. What BA does with their aircraft has no baring on what UA does with their 787-10s. Starting in January these aircraft will fly transcon routes between EWR-LAX/SFO but this is only temporary by mid April 2019 UA should have 9 frames in the fleet and at least 6 of those frames will be redeployed on yet to be publicly announced TATL routes from EWR, routes which will require crew rest.
Although earlier this year I thought UA in 2019 would once again utilize our 77HDs on the same TATL routes as this year but now I'm thinking those routes should go 787-10 next spring simply because this aircraft has more seats than our 77Es and UA was filling up those 77HDs out of EWR. The other 3 EWR TATL routes that will join them is anyones guess but there are some good suggestions posted by others on this thread.

Good to have it confirmed.

You have missed the point though. One cannot infer just because the 8/9s have them that the 781s have them given that they will serve different purposes. No, what BA does with theirs has no influence on what UA does, however it wouldn't be difficult to believe that since BA and UA will use them on similar routes.

Premium is essentially UA's version of true premium economy - better seats mostly

Economy + is essentially just hte same seat with more room, and on P.S. flights meal service.

Your statement is true for now but only because UA is not selling premium economy seats as premium economy seats they are currently being sold as economy plus seats. However once a majority of the fleet has been reconfigured with Polaris and premium economy there will be a upgraded onboard service offered in premium economy. UA will release more details on this service as we get closer to actually selling those seats as premium economy seats.

Good point. I left it out mostly because I didn't really have any details of what the upgraded service will encompass.

Did want to point out that there is a significant difference in seats, which I was lucky to experience getting to fly one of the few PE outfitted planes.

SFO to LHR is 4664 nm; well within the range of the 787-10

I am 100% sure because I've been on the aircraft earlier this fall at Boeing's CHS facility. United 787-10s have crew rest facilities for both pilots and FA's. What BA does with their aircraft has no baring on what UA does with their 787-10s. Starting in January these aircraft will fly transcon routes between EWR-LAX/SFO but this is only temporary by mid April 2019 UA should have 9 frames in the fleet and at least 6 of those frames will be redeployed on yet to be publicly announced TATL routes from EWR, routes which will require crew rest.
Although earlier this year I thought UA in 2019 would once again utilize our 77HDs on the same TATL routes as this year but now I'm thinking those routes should go 787-10 next spring simply because this aircraft has more seats than our 77Es and UA was filling up those 77HDs out of EWR. The other 3 EWR TATL routes that will join them is anyones guess but there are some good suggestions posted by others on this thread.


United Airlines Crew Rest 787-10
Crew Rest Facilities
--- Pilot crew rest (OFCR) is located in the fwd
section of the aircraft, with the entrance by
Door 1L. It is an upper crew rest consisting of
two bunks and one recliner.
--- Flight attendant crew rest (OFAR) is located in
the aft section of the aircraft, with the entrance
by Door 4L. It is an upper crew rest consisting
of six bunks.
You are here.

Delighted to see it on the EWR-DUB route. A massive improvement up front versus the 772 that flew the route last year

Flightglobal article on the first destinations to Europe, it also notes that SF and LAX will see the plane in January and Feb to shake things out before the Europe changes happen.

These destinations make sense for a high-capacity aircraft with a good business class product. I'm assuming it's the afternoon EWR-TLV flight that is going 78J, and that the late flight will continue to see the 77W.

I'm interested to see if SFO and LAX will hang on to a rotation or two along with the international flying. If UA will have 9 frames by the summer, I'd assume so.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

NIce. I'd probably spring for the Premium Plus at 7AB if the wife and I were travelling TATL together..

I believe they'll deploy it on European routes from EWR once these transcon proving flights are over.

It's flying primarily Transcon for Pilot Familiarization. Many of the pilots have only qualified to fly the airplane in the simulator.
The Fam rides are to match what they learned in the simulator to the actual airplane so they can go operate.

All 787 pilots can fly the 787-10 today there is no special training needed. In fact we have no simulators configured for a -10 and all the differences between the -9 and -10 are behind the scenes other than the length of the aircraft. It taxis different due to the need to oversteer more. Also ADSB IN but that doesn’t need to be trained.

I wish United put the lit bulkheads like they did on the 777-300ER. Looks so much classier.

UA will need at least 4 frames by the start of S19. I expected TLV to go to a B78J...as UA needs the additional capacity there. This will up UA's capacity on EWR-TLV to 694 daily seats and with a better hard product than LY (if the B788 and B789 seat specs are maintained---Polaris in J, 32"/17.3" in Y).

I do wish that these planes had mood lighting though.

All 787’s have mood lighting. It just depends on the airline on whether to switch it on or not.
