New feature: "Scheduled Aircraft" on Reservation Details page

Seeing this now on the Reservation Details page

Scheduled Aircraft
Boeing 737-700
Subject to change
Scheduled Aircraft
Boeing 737 MAX8
Subject to change
Looks like they're trying to get ahead of the flood of phone calls if/when MAX actually comes back....

I recently flew on a 737-800 swapped from a max 8 and a few people perked up when they heard 800 thinking we were on a max for a min so your theory is valid. In an unrelated note the 800 was so quiet the 700 is now annoyingly loud.

Trying to figure out exactly where you see this. Is it AFTER you make a reservation or where you select a flight?

I'm predicting any "you can swap your flight if you don't like the aircraft" accommodation to quickly become a farce once people realize their next option could be days away... Good PR though.

You have to make a reservation... Then click on it afterward and the screen says "Your Reservation Details" or something like that. It shows there.

I have one flight reserved and three I haven't yet pulled the trigger on, but for those three I can't find any plane info on them.

Click on the flight number (desktop version) and it tells you the plane type.

Actually, I didn't need to click on a flight number on the desktop version. I just went to display my upcoming flight details (from my account page, for one upcoming flight summarized there), and it's listed there on the right without any further clicking ("Boeing 737-700, Subject to Change" on LAX-LAS and back).

Perhaps there are different ways of getting to it, depending on where you start.
