    Running out the door but I just blogged about this. Essentially, on August 4th AA is flying one SAN-JFK and the J seats are bookable as main cabin select seats. As of right now, one-way ticket is $233.

    Technically, you could buy the main cabin select seats as a non-elite.

    I'm in. G fare was all that was left, but I'm in Row 13. Went Choice Plus as the $44 difference made the bonus miles less than 1 cent per mile.

    We should track who's in like a mini-Do.

    Date doesn't work for me unfortunately. If anyone else is contemplating you can use 7183BG for 5% off.

    Nice find! Wish I could make it...

    Any idea why that bird would be at SAN? Do they do 77W maintenance there?

    This flight has been available since May sometime, but this price is nicer than what was offered previously I believe. Still dont' think I'll make it, but then I've already tested the 77W on LHR-DFW. :)

    I've heard that the 77W was chartered to fly JFK-SAN on Aug 3 to bring folks to this: http://www.gbta.org/convention/2013/Pages/default.aspx

    They're selling seats on the return instead of flying it back empty.

    They're kidding: Jewel, Laura Bush, and Hilary Rodham Clinton as keynote speakers?

    Hi Mike. Just saw this so I am going to check it out but it may be gone. Q for you - are you saying that when one selects choice plus there are additional bonus miles awarded? I hadn't realized this and wanted to confirm. Thanks

    Choice Plus fares come with a 50% bonus on RDM.

    I'll be on this flight, seat 9G. Hope there's some good take-away breakfast food at the SAN airport since we'll be getting nothing but the standard economy catering! Looking forward to my first experience with the new 77W business seats :)
