TOKYO — What a whirlwind week. This 777-300ER, JA787A (also my inbound aircraft) will be my home for the next 13 hours as I cross the International Date Line and have one very, very long Friday. Needless to say, there’s a significant contrast going from a 787 back to the 777 cabin.

The flight will give me an opportunity to finish the first flight video, as well as dig into a look at what it’s like to fly on 787. Additionally, it will be my first chance to look at the transcript of third quarter Boeing earnings call and the company’s 10Q filing which quietly announced fresh slips on the 787-9 and 747-8I programs.

I may just try and catch a bit of shuteye too. Catch you on the other side of the world.
