SAA still has LY partnership.
And does that work for any long haul routes other than JNB? What about YQ?

I thought there was no QF YQ on LY?
-1 the annoying thing is you can only price YQ if you have enough points in your QF account.

ETA: HKG route may have little/no YQ

And does that work for any long haul routes other than JNB? What about YQ?
I have no first hand experience, see details here

"Termination of Frequent Flyer Club Agreement with South Africa​n Airways (SAA)
The agreement will be discontinued on June 30, 2017."

Phew. I feel relieved. My memory hasn't failed me. I am still young enough 😉. I thought I had seen somewhere that LY/SAA terminating mileage relationship, but wasn't certain. Which is why I wrote:

(SAA used to be have LY as a partner IINM, but was only good for TLV-JNB, don't know about J or F).

+1
Something like "LY Dreamliner updates" or "LY Dreamliner master thread" would make more sense....

I just noticed that I have a passenger flying on the very first inaugural flight tomorrow morning to LHR.
She actually booked it well before it was even scheduled to be on the Dreamliner

Any chance she could write a TR?

You're right about the product, but I'm also curious if there will be any celebration (or celebrities) etc. on the first flight

There are some pictures going around of an Elal cake and signs, celebrating the inaugural flight.
