This new service builds upon United Airlines’s growing presence in London and provides customers on the East Coast with another convenient option to get to London.
United plans to operate its premium Boeing 767-300ER aircraft on the route, with 46 United Polaris Business Class and 22 United Premium Plus seats. The aircraft features the highest proportion of premium seats on any widebody aircraft operated by a US carrier between London and the US.
"We are thrilled to offer travellers a convenient, non-stop option between Boston and London with this addition to our global network," said Patrick Quayle, vice president of international network and alliances, United Airlines. "We will continue to monitor the demand recovery and travel restrictions as we finalize a start date for this service later in 2021."
