You scared me for a moment, I had to take it out of the box and check, still in place and seem solid.

Nice one!! I've got one too, probably an essential for many U.S.-based collectors. Was the Chicago to Moscow flight non-stop?? That's gotta be a long trip. My two AA 763 flights were a red-eye from LAX-JFK and a DFW-LAX. A very smooth aircraft to fly!!

Yep, AA has non stop service to Moscow a couple times a week, not bad, about 10 hours.

The 763 business class has been redesigned and has personal movie selection in each seat (about 30 current movies). By the time you kill an hour or two eating dinner, then watch a couple movies, your half way there. Not to mention the new seats that are enclosed from the seat in front of you, you can lay completely flat like a bed.

And of course, AA priority access gives you airport security priority, no waiting, right to the head of the line at TSA check points and customs, the only way to fly

My trip in September cost me about $30.

I have the Dragon Wings equivalent in chrome. The 767 looks real good on AA.

Business Class for $30? No wonder the airlines are losing money Nice model by the way. I've got one as a momento of a Manchester-Chicago-Mancester flight, partially on the flight deck and partially in First Class. I think that one was totally free.

Yup, well worth it My trip wasn't even ticketed. I just went to the ticket desk with an introductory letter and was issued with a flight deck authority pass. Off I went to Chicago and then on to Washington National on an MD80. A couple of days later made the journey in the other direction. Alas, there is no way that would happen today.

This model and your fantastic pics of it are worth a thread revival.
