American just brought the Boeing 787 into service.
That feeling when you get a new car, it even still smells new, and a rock hits the windshield.. or you spill something on the seats. Or maybe it’s a brand new couch that you stain.
It’s unlikely the flight made it back to Beijing in time so that some passengers might have made it onto the late Air China flight to Los Angeles, I imagine all will be spending the night. Some will get re-accommodated on the next day’s Dallas flight, and others on the next morning’s Chicago flight. And still others may wind up on another carrier.
