United Airlines will fly its Boeing 777-200 between Cancun International Airport (CUN) and three of its hubs for one month this fall. Passengers at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), Denver International Airport (DEN), and George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) will be able to fly this widebody between October 29th and November 27th.
While few details have been released, Twitter user @IshrionA is reporting this bump in capacity. This is the first time UA has flown a 777 from Denver to Cancun and a resumption of this aircraft utilization from a few years back for the other routes.
United is not the only airline beefing up capacity to Cancun this fall/winter. American Airlines recently unveiled its big plans for tons of new flights (35 daily departures) to the Mexican vacation hotspot (more details here).
Anthony’s Take: It’s always fun to fly on widebody planes within the US and on shorter hops internationally. This plane features United’s old business class seats, but they’re still more comfortable than the recliners found on narrow-body aircraft.
