Per a filing with the US Department of Transportation, Sichuan Airlines wants to start operating nonstop flights between Chengdu and Boston. The airline proposes starting twice weekly flights around December 17, 2018, with the following schedule:

Chengdu to Boston departing 9:00PM arriving 12:15AM (+1 day) [Mon, Fri] Boston to Chengdu departing 2:15AM arriving 6:35AM (+1 day) [Tue, Sat]

The airline intends to use an Airbus A350-900 for the route, featuring 331 seats. The airline doesn’t yet have any A350s in their fleet, but rather plans to take delivery of the first of the 14 they have on order in the coming months.
