It was a party-like atmosphere in Everett today as United officially unveiled its new 787 to employees and the media. United’s Senior Vice President for Sales Dave Hilfman summed it up best— “The 787 was worth the wait.”
United even invited one of its very frequent fliers to the event. Dave Dawe told the crowd “I’ll travel thousands of miles out of my way to get on the Dreamliner.”
I want to share some photos from today’s event— including a surprise appearance by the Dreamlifter— and once again congratulate our long-time partner United on a day that made us all proud.
