You don't have to be a dick about it. All Boot said was that he did not "believe that was the case," based on public knowledge (or at least what he has read or heard). He obviously does not work at the airport or has intimate knowledge of what is going on from the inside. And the data he was quoting was presented in the latest press releases.
As far as the "public" was made aware (at least from what I have seen and heard), the first BA B789 in Austin was not going to happen until February. I have not seen anything official indicating BA was going to up that schedule. Are these revenue test runs (as it does not seem like these are daily yet)? I've tried to book flights on several days and it seems they are still ticketing for the B788 (except for today and Thursday). Also, the craft, itself, looks to have been delivered to BA last week from Boeing.
In any case, this is pretty cool. Wish I could head up to Austin and see it.
