    The 787 is finally coming. Delivery of UA's first 787 is expected this month. UA has loaded the domestic and international schedule for the 787.

    Starting in November the 787 will make the rounds of the hubs.
    UA will be sending the 787 to CLE on 11/10/2012
    UA 60 will depart IAH at 0700 arriving CLE at 1041
    UA 61 will depart CLE at 1600 arriving back in IAH at1807

    With the awesome nature of CLE



    and this flight being one-time only it calls for a DO. Pretty simple dinner in houston the night before and then the lounge and the party flights:

    Activities:

    Dinner in Houston on the 9th:
    Location :
    Papacitos Cantina

    I think we will be available (haven't sorted out our plans at IAH just yet, though).

    I'm in but can't do the IAH-CLE return (got concert tix in Jersey that night) so I'm flying IAH-CLE(seat 4A)-EWR. I'm also in for dinner Friday night and I'll be getting a car for any out-of-towners who might need a ride.

    ETA: I booked the IAH Marriott for the underground train to Teh Early Flug.

    Anyone else from NJ/NY going who wants to coordinate positioning flights? PM me.

    We are booked on UA 77 (2A/B), and we can attend dinner (both COFlyerCLE and COFlyerCLE+1). We will likely stay at the airport Marriott on Friday night as well.

    Well the SMD4 doesn't depart until 11/11...

    I'll see what I can swing. I could possibly do the first leg and then head more-or-less straight to LAX. It's a big maybe right now.

    I don't think I'll make it to the dinner on Friday night, but I'll be on UA77 (IAH-CLE) on Saturday morning.

    StammtischATX and I are in for UA77 IAH-CLE en-route to LAX for SMD4. Coming in from AUS that morning, so no dinner the night before (as painful a 5am flight will be, the overnight in IAH breaks the nifty $105 AUS-CLE fare).

    E+ for now, hoping for CPU. Can't justify burning a SWU and I'm out of RPUs.

    AA4115 CLE-ORD
    AA1693 ORD-SFO
    AA1198 SFO-LAX (arr 6:45p)

    I'd much prefer the direct ORD-LAX option, but this fare required SFO to be in there. May try for the reroute in ORD.

    Unfortunate, but I cannot say I'm surprised. They really needed that second frame this week to have any chance at all. Boeing is maxing out delivery at one/week right now and this week isn't going to be a United bird AFAIK. They simply do not have the frames to make it happen.
