United Airlines became the first commercial airline to perform a full passenger flight using only sustainable aviation fuel this week. On a 737 MAX 8, more than 100 people were flown. The flight was from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport to Washington, D.C.’s Reagan National Airport on Wednesday’s historic flight.
