ExCZ A319 N877UA has arrived ORD. It should be there a few days for TechOps to go over it before continuing on to AMA for paint.

With LN 1631 for 777s being spotted a few days ago, should our 1634 be in Final Assembly now? Indeed so... in fact 77W LN1634 .AND. 78X LN948/950 are all on their respective FALs. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xPZP2NmigprVBd5dklYcFOGraAn4C8Z4W0z2TPD-eD0/htmlview?pli=1# https://docs.google...
