The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner promises to be a dream
come true for both airlines and passengers.
The first carboncomposite
airliner, it boasts a 20 percent improvement in
fuel efficiency compared to other airplanes of its size, and offers
creature comforts like a wider cabin, ambient lighting, quieter
engines, bigger touch-screen entertainment panels and seat-to seat
Windows are 30 percent larger and can be dimmed
electronically (smart glass), and the cabin maintains a higher humidity level and
air pressure, which makes the interior more comfortable.
The Dreamliner completed its first flight carrying paying
passengers on Oct. 26 in Japan and is expected to start flying in the U.S. late this year.
