With the release of the A350, like everyone else, I wanted to fly with it but I didn’t have the time for an actual long haul flight with it. I decided to use the United A359 and fly from San Francisco to Houston. Currently the 772 is used a few times a day on this route so I can see them replacing it with the A359 when the 777 becomes outdated in 15-20 years. United won’t receive any A350s until 2027 so you could make the case that any flight with it is realistic. My total flight time was 3 hours and 2 minutes.
Route: IAH-SFO / KSFO-KIAH
Aircraft: Airbus A350-900
Flight Time: 3 Hours 2 Minutes
