United Airlines announced last month it will start using its new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners on six of its trans-Atlantic flights, all originating from its Newark (EWR) hub. The planes will be put into service in March 2019.

The new planes will be used on routes from Newark Liberty International Airport to Frankfurt (FRA), Germany; Tel Aviv (TLV), Israel; Barcelona (BCN), Spain; Brussels (BRU), Belgium; Dublin (DUB), Ireland; and Paris (CGD), France.

The airline was the first in North America to receive the 787-10, which has 44 United Polaris business-class seats, 21 United Premium Plus seats, 54 Economy Plus seats and 199 standard Economy seats. Tickets for these flights went on sale Dec. 3, 2018, for travel starting March 30, 2019.

“United is proud to offer more seats between New York and Europe than any other carrier and our Boeing 787-10 aircraft based in New York/Newark will enable us to connect even more New York City customers to Europe and beyond,” Patrick Quayle, vice President, United Airlines, said in a statement.

“We are thrilled to announce six international cities that will be served with this aircraft and we look forward to offering our customers all of the comforts and services of our most advanced aircraft,” Quayle added.

The planes have updated lighting patterns, a new seatback entertainment system and other features.

Global Gateway

SINCE ABOUT 2000, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been the busiest airport not only in the United States but also in the world. Each year more than 100 million passengers pass through the gateway, so it only makes sense the airport continues to evolve.

Athens: A city that charms its guests and stirs their emotions

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.

Piedmont Paradise

DON’T EXPECT TURIN TO FIT your image of Italy. It’s Italian, all right — the evening passeggiata and a love of good food and wine are alive and well. But you’ll look in vain for medieval cobbled streets, crumbling castles and works by Michelangelo (who never set foot here). Instead, although you’ll find some Roman ruins, you’ll also find a faux medieval village, a world-class film museum and a café life that rivals Vienna’s. You and your family will have fun here.
