Great! I am sure we can expect many pics, knowing at least half the employees at AMS have a camera at work

N20904, which I have had the pleasure to fly on, seems to be the reliable workhorse of the otherwise grounded UA 787 fleet! Evidently 906 has been at the hangar since Saturday, and I'm not sure where 902 is.  
Glad this bird was up for the journey!

Looks like all 3 of UA's 787's are in the air today.

EDIT: UA 1146 is being operated by a 772, so only two of the 3 787's are flying today.

2nd edit for spelling.

Note this is a one time flt. IAH-AMS goes back to a 764. Currently the officially regularly schedule 788 flts begin in early Jan.

Interestingly they are pretty much right on top of each other.
