United Airlines announced the addition of the Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft to its domestic flight schedules. The fuel-efficient and advanced-technology aircraft begins operations June 7, flying between Houston (IAH) and five destinations. Starting June 29, the aircraft begins additional operations from Los Angeles (LAX).
In total, the aircraft is expected to serve flights between Houston and Anchorage (ANC), Austin (AUS), Ft. Lauderdale (FLL), Orlando (MCO), Sacramento (SMF), Tampa (TPA), Los Angeles and San Diego (SAN); and Los Angeles to Honolulu (HNL).
“The addition of the MAX 9 furthers our efforts to become a more efficient and productive airline. It has better fuel efficiency, lower maintenance costs and does all of this while maximizing customer comfort,” said Andrew Levy, CFO, United Airlines.
The Boeing 737 MAX 9 includes 179 seats with 20 first-class seats in a 2-2 configuration; 48 Economy Plus seats in a 3-3 configuration; and 111 economy seats. Each seat provides a power outlet, but satellite WiFi is not complimentary.
The new United First seat is featured on all MAX 9 aircraft, with its contoured, two-tone leather, highly adjustable headrest and extra padding, as well as storage space, in-arm laptop slots, beverage consoles and double seatback pockets. The seat’s new tray table design offers a mobile device holder and AC power plug, plus a granite cocktail table appears in the center console.
