Win A “Dream” Trip on American’s 787-9 Dreamliner in Premium Economy

American Airlines commenced their 787-9 operations with a flight from Dallas/Fort Worth to London on October 4. Their true inaugural flight from Dallas/Fort Worth to Los Angeles on October 6 marked the official beginning of 787-9 operations.

One of the big selling points of the new airplane is the new Premium Economy cabin. The 787-9 is the first aircraft in the airline’s fleet to feature the new product, which American has said they hope to roll out on the majority of their long haul aircraft, including the 777s, 787s, and A350s.

On top of that, beginning in January of next year, the seats will come standard with an “enhanced meal service,” including complimentary alcohol, amenity kits, Bose noise cancelling headphones and one free checked bag.

This contest is now closed. Staff began in February, 2013 as a one-man (er… teenager, rather) show. Since then, we’ve grown to have 20 active team members, and yes, we’re still growing. Some of us are looking to work in the aviation industry as professionals when we grow older. Some of us are still trying to decide what we want to do. That’s okay though, because we’re all here for the same reason: we love the airlines. We’re the youngest team of airline industry journalists out there. Staff
