    It doesn't say JAL 787 in the article. But on the AA board (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/american-aadvantage/1318647-anyone-going-aa-event-bos-3-4-a.html), someone's wife got the invite and said it's for a JAL 787. So we will see. It's only a week away! :D
    Anyone got invited?

    From what I know it is a stop on the PR blitz that Boeing is putting on at airport across the country called the "Dream Tour". This would lead me to believe that JAL will have a contingent of management and PR at BOS, but the 787 will be iN Boeing livery.

    I think the number on the Dream Tour site is a list of stops and not dates. I think they are announcing dates as they get closer to the events.

    interestingly the press release says in support of JAL. And according to AA FTer, AA is telling people this will be JAL's 787. I guess we will see in a couple of days :D

    This is probably the same aircraft that was in SIN, BKK, and will be in YYZ to celebrate AC's 75th anniversary !:p

    if that's the case, i wonder what's the "in support on JAL" is all about...and why the hell did AA tell people it's JAL's 787...maybe it's the FTer who was too excited and heard it wrong LOL :p Or AA actually meant the type of aircraft JAL will use :eek:

    Of course I am only guessing.....but seems plausible considering the production challenges Boeing is having ! It isn't far from YYZ to BOS....
