I've got a seat on hold as well. US site shows this as the 787 but AA site shows a slightly different departure time and A321B as the aircraft.

I bought it as a connecting itinerary continuing on to NYC to get me home. MUCH cheaper that way.

I'm currently in Y on the inaugural.

And F on 2325, which I hope changes to 2320 ORD - DFW and F on 2327 DFW - ORD which I hope changes to 2373.

Admirals Club and Centurion access here!

Flying down Wednesday evening on a MD-80. :P

Hopeful but not 100% certain.

Put a ticket on hold rather than buying it. Also look at connecting onward from ORD to bring the price down. DFW-ORD-EWR is ~$365 and I need to get back to NYC anyways.

2320 from ORD - DFW was just removed from the system.... So it looks like they're updating it now...?
