Put DFW-ORD-RIC on hold this morning. Seems 2320 has been sold out? Plan to purchase it this night when back home.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make the inaugural. Work decided I couldn't go. Congrats to all who got on!

How do you define media? I know a bunch of people who write for various online publications who will be on board.

Anyone interested in grabbing dinner the night before? I'm probably going to stay at the Grand Hyatt DFW and may be interested in a late-ish dinner. (I haven't booked my positioning flights yet, but will soon.)

Possibly. Not sure how I will end up positioning. Might fly the SFO->DFW redeye.

Finally ticketed just now onto 2320. $174 all in including ORD-BOS connection
Not a bad deal.
