The seat map is still showing A321, so we might have a change after all

Don't think they are changing the flight - just think they haven't updated the seat map yet. In fact, I haven't even seen an official seat map for the AA 787 yet anywhere, so who knows, they may be drawing it up as we speak

I'm on 2320. Bought my tickets through US Airways. I'm a newbie to the whole game. Would love to meet up with you all in Dallas.

I did the same thing! That sounds like a plan! As the date comes closer I am sure we will all schedule some sort of meet-up.

I'd have to assume 2328 is becoming 2320.

Also, unrelated, but is there seriously no longer a 6am departure to ORD from Dallas post-banking?!?

Can someone add me to the Wiki for 2320 in the Y cabin?

Also, Admirals Club and Centurion Lounge access!

Can't wait!
