United plans to fly Dreamliner again on May 31

SEATTLE -- United Airlines said Monday it plans to fly the Boeing 787 Dreamliner for the first time after its grounding on May 31.

The first United customers to fly on the plane will be those traveling from Denver to Houston, an airline spokeswoman said. It plans to get the jet back into service with U.S. routes at first. United has six of the jets.

The airline's first trip overseas with the jet is currently scheduled on June 10 on its Denver-Narita, Japan.

United said it will made additional schedule changes as "we gain visibility into the timeline for certification and modification work."

The 787, which has been grounded since January, made its second and final flight test last week.
