According to the Denver Business Journal, United Airlines is expected to announce today service from Denver to Tokyo Narita, starting early in 2013. United would be the first carrier to offer direct service to Asia from Denver. Rumors are spinning that one of the new 787 Dreamliners that United is acquiring starting in September this year, may be used on the long distance route. Assuming that United will keep the airfare reasonable (they probably won’t), this will save at least a 2-3 hours or more off a trip to Asia from Denver, eliminating the need to connect at LAX, SFO or SEA.
