Probably won't get to see it in person up here in SEA but who knows, maybe it'll hit most UA destinations eventually. :crossfingers: Why they used a 73...

They generally go down to northern Cali from Seattle/Portland and do a tech stop for fuel then launch towards the islands.

They did a great job and the memorabilia package was very impressive. My impression was that the majority of pax were VX employees. They created a great atmosphere and a flight that I will always remember. Hopefully AS treats them well! Nope, most the pax were fans who wanted to be part of history.
