UA SFO-PPT 787-8 started 30 Oct 2018; Experiences, QA, .....
 
looks like we'll have a new route announced tomorrow, and it'll indeed be on the 787. this was just tweeted:

the emoji are (a) beach with umbrella, (b) snow capped mountain, (c) cityscape.

speculation in a LAX thread (credit to @EWR764) is that the route will be ex-LAX: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unit...ax-hub-26.html

According to the Instagram story, the new route will be from SFO.

I choose (a).

LAX-SAN

:D

N830MH Dec 12, 17 5:37 pm

SFO-PPT to be announced.

Or SFO-BKK nonstop by operated 787 Dreamliner.

Any guesses?

Let the speculation begin!

Just saw that too...and they are vying pandas vs. turtles.

Also they say "send us a message" but don't have the ability to respond to their stories activated. #SocialMedia101

If you go to the IG story they have more pitting swimming vs. skiing, turtles vs. pandas...

Is this the replacement for SFO Xian which was cancelled?

IG story says ex-SFO. Inclined to believe it's PPT because the IG story polls are "beach vs mountain" and "sea turtle vs pandas" and I can't think of a mountain + panda combo other than in China and after the recent pullout on thin China routes I don't think they are about to launch a new China route.

Also French Blue just announced SFO - PPT like 2 days ago so timing would make some sense

Agreed on the very logical thought there, and I remember seeing SFO-PPT being rumored somewhere else as well.

Forget the new destination, where did this little guy get a bear this season?

Jealous!

PsiFighter37 Dec 12, 17 6:21 pm

I'd dig SFO-PPT if that was true...would probably end up using that one relatively soon as well :D BKK would probably satisfy a lot of people on this forum.

nevansm Dec 12, 17 6:38 pm

Actually. Now that I think about it, this has to be the new IAD-SHD-LWB route. It HAS to be.

EWR764 Dec 12, 17 6:42 pm

SFO-PPT was rumored a few weeks ago, and I think thatís what we will see. Stay tuned for LAX.
