The fact that AA is getting rid of 767s is great news. I recently had the opportunity to fly on AA 787-9s from LAX to SYD and AUK to LAX, business class both ways. The aircraft really makes long-haul flights more enjoyable. And I felt so much better after the flights thanks to the lower cabin altitude, increased humidity, and quiet cabin. In fact, I slept for most of the 15 hour flight to Australia and that's tough to do for someone as tall as I am. (Unfortunately a crying baby prevented sleep on the return flight.) And the seats are a huge improvement over the original seats in the 787-8.
