    Just got invited to a 787 event in Austin, tentatively scheduled for the evening of Jan 16th. Apparently it's to promote the new Denver to Tokyo service, which will have a few good connections from Austin.

    We've been promised full access (cargo bay, cockpit, etc) to the plane.

    Not sure how open this is yet - does anyone have more details on this?

    This came through my company's travel office to folks who have had to do a lot of Asia travel this year. My company does not buy anything but the cheapest economy fare, even for 14 hour flights to Asia. I definitely don't feel like one of the cool kids.

    I was hoping there would be some way for anybody to hop in on this event, but so far it seems pretty quiet. I'll keep an ear open and post if anything opens up closer to the date of the event.

    I'm also seeing if I can snag a guest, in which case I'll post something here as well.
