Los Angeles actually was the first! They did it for a month route testing, but they got so much demand they kept bringing the 777s!

Always the best photos!


Yeah it will be brand new as well most likely as it is New config 787 with more premium seating flying to Houston most of the time

I can’t wait for the new constructuon of Terminal D I thought they were supposed to start demolishing the old building last year.


Nice photos! The tail on the Qatari 77L looks slightly different then how it should normally be if you look at it closely. Is it a special livery or just a painting mistake?
