United Airlines is seeking government approval to run nonstop service from San Francisco to Chengdu, China, starting next year.
The airline plans to use the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner for the service, if it is approved by the Department of Transportation. This would be the ninth location in the Asia-Pacific region to have United nonstop service from San Francisco.
