Sabre is actually allowing me to pull up the seat maps which confirms this info.

What an upgrade on the business from their 2-3-2 configuration on the 772...

And hopefully the premium cabin prices like AZ... (AC PE is prohibitively expensive)

They will definitely match (or be matched to...) to UA JV A++

Will they possibly remove the new J from partners like they currently do with their F?

Amazing how much detective skills we have to go through to figure this out instead of them putting out a press release to generate hype...

Bigger question is what will become of J and F on their existing fleet? Presumably, if they want to keep selling F, they'd need to invest in new seats and a 1-1 config.

Any word on which routes will get 787 service?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

So far not MIA...
(Though from the test in the GDS a couple months ago, I would assume LAX will be from the first)
