    Some had speculated that a 787 would be used, but a 77W makes more sense.

    With this new route, the success of DFW-HKG and F demand for LHR and GRU, I wonder if AA will expand its 77W fleet beyond the 20 planned.

    The press release.

    And Qantas brings back their SYD-SFO route!

    This going to be AA metal? If so, any ideas when the flights will post? Did a quick search and it all shows up as operated by Qantas.

    Yes, curious minds would certainly like to know when these seats are available - perhaps it will be a bit easier to book as an award flight than on Quantas using AA miles?

    It still won't be easy, but I doubt that it will be as tough as QF.

    I'm just excited at the prospect of using a SWU. Happy to pay cash to use them to get down under.

    A quick glance at the AA award search engine shows award steerage class seating available, with almost no business class availability on AA flights to SYD. :(

    The flight still isn't loaded yet, so there's no AA metal to SYD for seats to be available on ;)

    Yes, you are right. But you can now travel on AA award miles on HA and QF metal. Just don't expect to be sitting in anything other than coach seating. :(
