The new year brings good news for Silicon Valley’s tireless travelers. On Jan. 7, those flying between San Francisco and Newark can be among the first to experience the latest Dreamliner, the Boeing 787-10 that United Airlines ( will operate on select flights. Then, in time for tulip season, the airline will launch the first nonstop service by a U.S. carrier between San Francisco and Amsterdam March 30; the daily flights will use a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. In April, the airline will also expand its seasonal service to New Zealand to year-round, with three flights a week to Auckland on a Boeing 777.
