I think it's still waiting in line for its espresso at Zaza.

Actually, looks like its in for a maintenance cycle of some sort.

N821UA has NEXT

Flew A319 N821UA DFW-ORD yesterday and can confirm it has NEXT interior. The UA fleet S/S has a comment questioning if this plane has NEXT.

Hope this is helpful and new, relevant info.

Enjoyed watching a show on seat back screen with Bluetooth NC headphones.

First 21N spotting yesterday at ORD

I was inside an (AC) 38M at ORD on the way wait to YVR yesterday (seemed like 40 minutes between pushback and wheels up ) on the way back from Europe.

Actually not a bad looking bird ...... and seemed to have a door plug in the back in addition to the two overwing exits.

Hopefully the door plug stays on.

It has both: two over wing exit doors (as marked on the seat map) as well as a door plug further back. Based on Aerolopa seat map, guessing it is the between row 30 and 31.
