United Airlines today announced it has added its newest aircraft type, the Boeing 737 MAX 9, to its domestic flight schedules.

United Airlines plans to place its first Boeing 737-9s into revenue service June 7 on routes connecting its Houston Intercontinental (IAH) hub and five cities, including its summer seasonal-nonstop route to Anchorage, Alaska.

Beginning 29 June, United plans to add additional B737 MAX 9 flights from its Houston and Los Angeles hubs including service between Los Angeles and Honolulu.

"The addition of the Max 9 furthers our efforts to become a more efficient and productive airline", says Andrew Levy, chief financial officer of United, in a statement. "It has better fuel efficiency, lower maintenance costs and does all of this while maximising customer comfort".

United's 737-9s will be configured with 179 seats, including in 20 first-class and 44 in economy plus.

The US Federal Aviation Administration certified the 737-9 on 16 February, clearing the way for the first delivery to Lion Air Group.

United's new, extra-spacious United First seat features contoured, two-tone leather, a six-way adjustable headrest and a padded articulating seat cushion. However, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines both introduced the Max 8 in 2017.
