I would probably be really disappointed if I had a flight booked on a 787 in the next couple of days (or weeks!) bearing in mind the grounding of all 787s.

So is anyone here affected by the 787 grounding? Did you book a specific flight just to try out the 787?

Yep. Supposed to fly QR76 and 75 on the 23rd of January and 24th February, respectively. Going to Thailand again and decided i'd take a 7 hour stopover at Doha each way just to get a go on the 787. P***ed off is an understatement if i wind up on a 77W/77L. Could've saved myself £150 and flew TG direct to BKK and a quick 1 hour stopover to CNX.

I was on UA 33 NRT-LAX departing 1/16. We returned to the gate because of an "electrical issue." I was certain UA had just grounded the fleet.

I was nervous. Didn't want to be on a dangerous plane. And I needed to be back home by morning.

Flight left after two hour delay. Fleet was grounded after we landed in LAX.

I'm booked on NH204 (FRA-HND) Saturday next week.
Not too worried though, flew on JA801A in Nov 2011, so this flight is just a bonus and I am sure the 787 will be live again by then.

*raises hand*

Two, as a matter of fact. One Saturday, one Sunday. Figured I'd catch United's 787s while they're roaming about the States. Oh well, looks like I'll still have the surprise of seeing what substitute they send...

Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?

I'm joining the club.

I was supposed to fly the 787 on AMS-IAH earlier this week, at first I was upset to see it had been changed to a 764, but I finally enjoyed the flight a lot ! New interior, got Economy Plus for free and the flight was almost empty...

I still had the chance to fly the LO 787 on BRU-WAW
