United Air­lines will soar through the clouds this North­ern Hemi­sphere sum­mer with the in­tro­duc­tion of its new Boe­ing 737

MAX9 services on 7 June. The air­craft will fly from Hous­ton to five US cities in­clud­ing An­chor­age, Or­lando, San Diego, Austin and Fort Laud­erdale, an easy con­nec­tion for Aus­tralians thanks to the new Syd­ney to Hous­ton services that be­gan op­er­at­ing in Jan­uary, 2018. From 29 June, 2018, the US car­rier will also in­tro­duce the MAX 9 on the Los An­ge­les to Honolulu ser­vice, with more des­ti­na­tions added from Hous­ton, in­clud­ing Tampa and Sacra­mento. The MAX9 has 179 seats in­clud­ing 20 United First seats in a 2-2 con­fig­u­ra­tion, 48 in Econ­omy Plus and 111 econ­omy seats – both classes in a 3-3 con­fig­u­ra­tion. Pas­sen­gers will also have ac­cess to in-seat power out­lets and the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase satel­lite WiFi and United’s Pri­vate Screen­ing per­sonal de­vice en­ter­tain­ment will be avail­able through­out the air­craft, en­abling pas­sen­gers to en­joy many hours of movies and tele­vi­sion pro­grams on their elec­tronic de­vices. Pas­sen­gers in First will en­joy ex­tra-spa­cious seat­ing with con­toured, two-tone leather; a six-way ad­justable head­rest for to­tal re­lax­ation and a padded ar­tic­u­lat­ing seat cush­ion. The seat also comes equipped with stor­age spa­ces for per­sonal items, in­clud­ing an in-arm tablet and lap­top slot, a per­sonal wa­ter bot­tle con­sole and dou­ble seat­back pock­ets. There is a new tray ta­ble design with a flip-up mo­bile de­vice holder that fits more than 200 phone and tablet mod­els, while a gran­ite-topped ex­tend­able cock­tail ta­ble in the cen­tre con­sole will add a touch of ele­gance.
