I only mention the mini-bar because the one on the 787 is chilled... finally.

But I can imagine waking up after a nap (or in the middle of one) and liking the ability to grab a drink immediately and not having to wait and/or press call button.

I don't get the whole Mini-Bar in F thing. Maybe in Business or Coach but in F i want someone bringing me a drink in a glass with ice

I don't think AJK was referring to a walk-up bar like they have on some planes. Rather the mini bar that may be next to your armrest on some planes.

TN to purchase two 787-9s.

Almost surely will have lie-flat. Finally, 180 degrees to BOB!

Don't you already have a trip to BOB planned though?

Not too far off:

Quote
French Polysian flag carrier Air Tahiti Nui plans to order two 787-9 aircraft and lease another two to replace its ageing A340 fleet.
The carrier aims to begin replacing its current long-haul aircraft with four 787-9s from Q4 2018 to coincide with its 20th anniversary.

Well, I'm not sure which is crazier--below or my "Brazil Trip"--but I can tell you that Dan was the but-for cause underlying both of these certifiably amazing insane trips.

I can't justify it. I can only say that this is a part of a hobby I relish, and hobbies only need passion, not justification.

After (too) much back and forth, some convincing, and then some dissuading, I'm going to help Dan knock something off of both our bucket lists...

Pacific Hopper, here we come!



UA, EWR-HNL, in Business <--- lie-flat in red

     --overnight in HNL at TBD--

UA, HNL-MAJ-KWA-KSA-PNI-TKK-GUM, in Business <--- Hopper in green

     --overnight in GUM at TBD--

UA J, GUM-NRT, in Business

     --overnight at Park Hyatt NRT--

NH F, NRT-ORD, in First <--- Yellow

     --overnight at Shallots and the Fairmont in ORD--

UA J, ORD-NYC/CLE, in Business



Now just need to convince the Mrs...  ;D
