5/6 UA469 JFK to SFO B757

Enroute now. Asked a FA about it and he didn't want to ask up front and chose instead to remind me that it was at the PIC's discretion.

5/5 UA950 LAX-IAD 777

Too bad, since there was something going on in Dulles yesterday where they shut down a runway and we were doing circles over the WV/VA line for a while. It would've been nice to listen into the commotion.
