United Airlines announced Thursday its first domestic flight schedule for the new Dreamliner 787s as it phases Boeing’s state-of-the-art airliner into service “several years ahead of its North American competitors.”

Featuring passenger comforts such as bigger windows, larger overhead bins and better ventilation, United’s Dreamliner is set for its first flight at 7:25 a.m. November 4 from Houston to Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Tickets on the Dreamliner routes will be available online starting Saturday.

Other routes in what United calls a “temporary” schedule will include Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington and Newark, New Jersey.
