UAL 787-9 Inaugural Flight Today? UAL1086

Mon Sep 22, 2014 8:32 pm

Looking at UAL 1086 IAH-LAX. Is this United's inaugural flight using the 789?

UAL.com also confirms it's the 789.

Looks like they may have done a proving run IAH-DEN-LAX-IAH last Friday 19-Sept operating as UAL2129

Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

I saw it take off from IAH today! I was taking family there so they could go back home and we saw it taking off! Such a beautiful plane!

Not sure why, but UA1125 & UA1086 swapped to a 739 this morning.

Tchau

Why would be due to the 789 being busted.

I could have sworn I saw the 9 on approach to IAH on Sunday afternoon. (Unless it was a 764)
