I'm so excited to be going on this trip! I've already started researching the hotels and what I'd like to see on my OYO time.

This is going to be another incredible ABD experience!

Hi everyone! Mike and I were talking about our adventure last night at dinner and have started thinking about places we want to visit.

Part of my mom's family is from the area around Waldeck, Mike wants to visit the miraphone factory just outside Munich..... Decisions, decisions!

Hmmm....it seems we have quite a few trips and you are always busy.

I think you should provide us with a 2014 schedule.

I found that Lufthansa has an iPhone app. It looks like flights for the dates of our trip will be available for booking in about 3-4 weeks. They are part of the Star Alliance and have non-stop flights out of Newark, JFK, Boston and some other cities as well.

There's also an official Oktoberfest app!!!

United Airlines Announces First 787 International Routes

INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS WILL START IN JANUARY 2013 ON UNITED'S BOEING 787 DREAMLINER
CHICAGO, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today announced the first international routes for the airline's newest addition to its fleet, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. In addition to the previously-announced service from its Denver hub to Tokyo Narita, starting March 31, 2013, the airline will operate nonstop 787 service five days a week between its Houston hub and Lagos, Nigeria, beginning Jan. 7, 2013. United will also operate daily, nonstop 787 service between its Los Angeles hub and its Narita hub, beginning Jan. 3, 2013, and Los Angeles to Shanghai, beginning March 30, 2013.

United will also operate daily, nonstop 787 service from its Houston hub to Amsterdam and London Heathrow on a temporary basis. Houston to Amsterdam service begins Dec. 4, 2012, and Houston to London Heathrow service begins Feb. 4, 2013.

"The 787 is the right aircraft for these routes because of its many passenger-friendly amenities and superior operating economics," says United's Senior Vice President of Network, Greg Hart. "With 50 787s on order, we look forward to the many new route opportunities that will become available to United and our customers in the future."

The 787 aircraft will display for sale for these routes on united.com and other distribution channels beginning Aug. 25, while Denver to Narita service is available for sale now. In the near future, United will announce plans for initial domestic flying for the 787, which will precede the launch of international flights described above.

Configured with 36 seats in United BusinessFirst, 72 seats in United Economy Plus and 111 seats in United Economy, the Dreamliner will revolutionize the flying experience for United customers and crews while delivering unprecedented operating efficiency, comfort and lower emissions. Customers will experience greater comfort with improved lighting, bigger windows, larger overhead bins, lower cabin altitude and enhanced ventilation systems, among other passenger-friendly features.

Recent photos of United's first 787 aircraft are available for download in the media center on unitedcontinentalholdings.com under "First 787 Production Flight."
