If you’ve ever looked at the About Me page here at MJ on Travel, you know I’m an airline guy/#AvGeek first and foremost. I cut my teeth at American Eagle and American Airlines, and it really makes me smile that American Airlines has taken delivery of its first 787 today. Yes, I’m following on Flightaware.com.

If you, like me, have a little red, white, and blue in you, be sure to follow along as AA 9702 makes its way from Seattle to DFW. Having spent most of my “formative years” with American, I’m especially proud to see an airline finally focused on something other than shrinking itself to oblivion. Yes, I’m actively seeking opportunities to fly on one of these new AA 787s. Are you?
