AA 787-8 Dreamliner 788 Inaugural Flight - DFW-ORD 7 May 2015

Created this thread for those who WILL be on the inaugural flight May 7 out of DFW (currently expected to be AA 2320). Intent of forum mostly to discuss the flight and possibility of meeting each other at the gate!

I was able to snag two seats early on. Don't want to purchase them unless confirmed but only have until midnight tonight - but they were pretty cheap and refundable. #firstworldproblems

Ahh ok. Economy I assume? Did you also book through US site? Mine is also refundable, however my United flights to DFW and from ORD are not, so if for some reason 2320 isn't it, I have until tomorrow to cancel those lol. Mine was fare "M".

No first. I got it early on. Just made a wild guess when I saw the higher than average load in 1st.

I have 2320 on hold. Used 30k miles as fare is now $568. I know some will think it a crazy use of miles, but what the heck. There is only one inaugural flight!

I have a refundable economy M on hold for 368. Still not 100% in—for work reasons I'd probably have to take a red eye from SFO the night before.

Same here, I have it on hold, but today I'm talking with my boss to see if it will work out.
