First Dreamliner touches down

CHICAGO

United Airlines’ inaugural flight of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner has touched down at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

United is the first U.S. airline to get Boeing’s newest plane. United CEO Jeff Smisek was on Sunday’s flight from Houston to Chicago and called the 787 the “world’s leading airplane.”

The Chicago Tribune reports that the landing was greeted by cheers from passengers.

It was a long time coming, as Boeing recently started delivering the jets after more than three years of delays.

Fuel shortage will continue for days

NEW YORK

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says officials expect the fuel shortage that has led to long lines and short tempers to continue for days.

He said Sunday that authorities aren’t “100 percent sure” when the shortage will end but that it’s a short-term problem.

Cuomo says the fuel delivery and distribution problems from Superstorm Sandy are easing and that more gas is coming to the area and will be distributed.
