BOS welcoming a B747-400

Starting today, VS has been starting B744 service for the summer. I don't know how it will last but a welcome sight!

It will just be for this summer as the LHR 747's are being phased out from September.

Well, our flight today from LHR to BOS was great and it was not on a 747 OR an A340-600. In fact it was on a 787-9. Great flight, my first on a 787. The cabin (J) was great. I liked the windowshadeless windows and the pressurization/humidity level. Very nice!!

Today was a B744, I guess it depends on the day!
