656 really was in sad shape, so it's hard to imagine another plane in worse condition!
I remember getting into my car, turning it around, and then watching Ed jump out from your car and start snapping pictures. I couldn't see what the heck he was shooting because I was facing the other way, but when that shiny silver hit the corner of my eye, I was pissed! Although the lighting wasn't the best, it would have been nice to at least have the opportunity to *try* to take a picture!
I've heard that it comes to LGA
every once in a while, but I've never seen it there. I also heard it visits DCA
, but I didn't see it while we were all down there in July. One day soon, I hope.
I too would like to see some sort of a schedule for the rollout of these two star alliance planes. There are a few US employees in the NY area who might have access to this information, so maybe one of them will chime in here.
