United's First B737 MAX 9 Takes Flight

United Airlines became the first North American carrier to operate the fuel efficient Boeing B737 MAX 9 aircraft.

The brand new plane entered service on June 07 as United flight 686 between United's hub at Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Orlando International Airport in Florida.

The MAX on the same day began flights between Houston and Anchorage, Alaska and Houston and Austin, Texas.

The Boeing B737 MAX uses Boeing's Advanced Technology winglets and fuel efficient engines to provide a quieter ride and the ability to fly farther on less fuel.

"The Boeing B737 MAX is a great addition to United's fleet, providing approximately 14 percent fuel efficiency compared to previous 737 generations and an improved customer experience onboard," noted Rodney Cox, vice president, Houston, United Airlines.
