Remarks: [18:30] A thin film of clouds coats the Northern Puerto Rican Coastline as the last rays of light grace the upper layer of fluff. We are American 1327 from Miami, about to turn inland towards our IAF for the ILS/LOC RWY 08 approach. While I was supposed to go direct from MIA to ANU, it was nostalgic to come through SJU once again, and makes me feel old to now 'remember' what the SJU hub used to be, as Terminal D is now all but dead.

Remarks: Cabin shot of Ship 623, from Row 11. We had the exit row, which was quite comfortable. The 757's seats and overhead TVs look straight out of the 80s...American's interior is repulsive, esepcially the first class seats which look even worse. Too bad - AA plans to drop up to 12 from the fleet from the bankruptcy.
Remarks: The friendly crew of American Airlines 1327, service to San Juan. It was nice to chill up front after a day of headaches - a blown fuel booster on our flight BDL-MIA caused us to miss our connection to ANU at MIA, so we hopped 1327 to SJU then the late-night ATR flight to ANU. Nice to get the old flightdeck layout - they are being upgraded. Thanks so much to the jolly crew for the photo-op!
