    I'm assuming the inaugural flight will be IAH-XXX? Really hope it's on a weekend so that I can fly out to try it out.

    I would be on either ORD-IAH, SEA-IAH or SEA-ORD.

    It will most likely do what CO did with the RetroJet and fly it on a through flight from EWR-ORD-IAH-DEN-LAX-SFO or something like that...

    Doubt it. But they are running a 757-300 between SFO-LAX in August.

    Actually they need to familiarize each station that the 787 will be operating out of including proving runs so there's no need to doubt anything. It will happen.

    They can accomplish that via other routes (IAH-LAX/SFO-IAH) or given the first real route will be DEN-NRT, DEN-LAX/SFO-DEN. But if they do SFO-LAX, I wouldn't complain. Just not holding my breath on that particular route for the 787.

    I will try to use my miles to get on one of the domestic 787 trial runs.

    There isn't much indication that the early routes will involve either SFO or LAX. They will likely do a dog-and-pony show at some point, but the meat of the training will likely involve sCO routes and hubs as that's where the crews who need the most training - in-flight staff - will be at.

    That's awesome! They're finally going to replace the ERJ 145 with the B787 from CLT to CLE then? About freakin' time.:p:D

    Don't know what the Gold number is, but that is a lot of points.

    i think it's 1k status points?

    from what i've gathered, you have to post a lot or be a female that's easy on the eyes to get this in a relatively short amount of time :)

    Time to change my avatar :)
