May 29, 2016 | Two months after launching direct flights between Tel Aviv and San Francisco, United Airlines today announced that it was increasing the frequency of its flights on the route from three a week to one per day. Daily flights will begin on October 8, 2016 on Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The model is made out of lightweight materials that make it possible to fly faster, with passengers enjoying larger windows and better ventilation on the planes. The decision to add flights on the San Francisco route was a response to strong demand for the route among consumers during the few months since it was launched. The additional flights will operate according to the same timetable as that of the existing flights.
