What'll it look like inside?
AA hasn't yet begun the promotional fun for the 787 and thus, no interior renderings have been released. Regardless, you can bet that it'll likely be a plane outfitted with lie-flat seats in Business Class, none or a very small First Class, and both Main Cabin Extra and Main Cabin in the back. Look to the new AA Boeing 777-300ERsin fact, check out our special series on themfor an idea of what's to come.
What about routes?
Seeing as how they just barely introduced the new 777-300ERs to the New York-London route and British Airways, their alliance partner, has a 787 running between Newark and London, we're going to bet that London will not be a first choice.
In fact, we're not so sure New York will see much of an AA 787; some of the airline's other hubs (like in Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Philadelphia) have more need for the niche international routes the Dreamliner does so well. For example, it'd be so nice to see a 787 take over the newish Dallas-Seoul route. Hint Hint!
