United Orders $2.53 Billion In Boeing 787s To Support Network Expansion

2 October 2018
Reuters reports that United Airlines announced an order for nine additional Boeing 787 widebody jets in an effort to “modernize its fleet as it expands its domestic network with additional coast-to-coast seats between New York and Los Angeles and San Francisco.” The order is worth $2.53 billion at list prices, and brings Boeing’s “total 787 orders for 2018 to 105 aircraft, already surpassing the 94 orders it received in all of 2017, a source familiar with the deal said.” Under a plan announced Monday, United will add “more than 700 daily seats and 125 premium seats on 27 daily flights between New York/Newark and Los Angeles and San Francisco, thanks to an extra daily flight and the use of more widebodies on those roundtrip routes.” United plans to take delivery of new 787-10 jets beginning next year, and 787-9s in 2020, “which will be used to replace older widebody aircraft.” In a statement, Boeing cited data that shows almost half of its 787 customers have placed additional Dreamliner orders.
