First Class

First Class has arrived

First Class service has begun

United Airlines started first class service to Midland May 1st.  This is the first time Midland has had regularly scheduled first class service since the new terminal opened it’s doors.  See our previous post for more information about the service.  Here are a few photos from that first flight.


Here is the plane exiting Runway 16R beneath a traditional water arch.

The interior of the CRJ-700. Notice the first class seats in the foreground. There are a total of six of them.


We look forward to the success of this flight.  If the flight and service are popular hopefully we can get this aircraft and service on more flights.

First Class is coming to Midland May 1st

First Class

United Airlines will be upgrading one flight a day to and from Houston to the CRJ-700 aircraft.  With that change in aircraft type that will enable United to offer 6 first class seats on that route.  This marks the first time in the new terminal’s life that Midland will have regularly scheduled first class service.  By booking a first class seat you will enjoy priority boarding, no bag fees, and a one on one level of service from the flight crew.

The first flight will be flown on May 1st from Houston to Midland.  It will depart Houston at 5:40PM and arrive in Midland at 7:06PM and spend the night here on the ramp.  The return flight departs Midland on the 2nd at 5:04AM and arrives in Houston at 6:28AM.

We are very excited for this increase in seats and service here at MAF.
