New RAM 787-9 business class seats?

Just heard about new reverse herringbone 787-9 business class cabins on RAM. Will be flying JFK-CMN in September of 2019 and wondering if they'll be in service then? Can't seem to find any implementation dates/info online.

So, to answer my own question, when I look at my booking on the RAM web site, it now reads:

Duration: 06h50m
Airline: Royal Air Maroc (AT 201)
Aircraft: Boeing 787-9
Cabin: Business

Looks like the 787-8 will be off the route by then!

It seams as if they are testing the 787-9 across different routes.
I will be flying on it inbound GRU in Feb and outbound unfortunately on the 787-8 with the old 2-2-2 business class.

Actually people seem to think the 788 wasn't too bad, aside from the fact that the high-low configuration of the seats when flat was unusual and a little off-putting.

Update -- the 789 is in service, and some of the early reviews of the new J product are coming in:

Looks like the hard product is great. The soft product, not so much. But I'll take it!
