About United Airlines

United is one of the worlds oldest and most established commercial carriers. It was founded in 1926 as Varney Air Lines, changing to United Air Lines shortly after before finally becoming United Airlines in the early 1930s.

From its first trans-Atlantic flights in the 30s using Boeing 247s, the worlds first modern airliner, United Airlines was a trailblazer in the world of civil aviation. It was United who introduced the profession of flight attendant to America in 1930 with its crew of 8 female registered nurses, followed by the introduction of male flight attendants 20 years later. In the mid 1930s, in-flight dining took off with Uniteds implementation of a kitchen in the sky, which was followed up with aviations first use of computerized flight simulators to plan a flight path.
