    Yup! It's nice that they finally launch a new route and they announce their 787 destination before the launch customer :p

    Now I want to move to Boston LOL...I guess we can see the seat map tomorrow. I hope they will at least use NEO seats on them and not the Sky Recliner :eek: Or better, develop a brand new C seat with flat bed :) (But I am not counting on it)

    Good news for Boston. I know officials there have wanted a direct flight to Asia for some time, now.

    Yup! They tried to get NH start a flight too. Let's see if they will do it with 787 too.

    I doubt the market is there to support two NRT-BOS flights, but who knows.

    I was under the impression that both JL and NH had to wait 1 year after taking their 787 to have etops ok'ed by the MOT ?:eek:

    I thought they were supposed to be ETOPS certified out the door.

    Nice addition for BOS, but I'll stick with *A and BOS-EWR-NRT or BOS-SFO-NRT

    More competition, maybe cheaper prices :)

    Me too. Probably BRU, maybe ZRH or DUS. I also expect to see both JL and NH offering DXB flights at some point soon.

    If NH flies 787s to anywhere in the States, I would expect either EWR or DEN, or maybe a US Air hub.

    Nice. I'm moving to Boston shortly for a one year project, so I just might take a ride next Spring :)

    Too bad these won't have F. I've always really enjoyed JL's F
