New Boeing 787 Takes Flight - Page 2
Most seasoned passengers should be familiar with the headache of stuffing oversized luggage into tiny bins, while trying to maneuver around impatient people. The bins in the new 787 have been upgraded with larger ones, which are designed to accommodate twice as much luggage. The architecture was designed with dimensions that allow for adequate spacing for a large roll-aboard bag.
Improved Cabin Altitude
The 787 has developed a system, which uses lower altitude pressure (6,000 ft. vs 8,000 ft.,) which means the air will be closed to what we are accostumed to on the ground. Lower cabin pressure can also help prevent fatigue. There are also double the amount of air vents creating better air circulation.
More efficient Engines
The plane has a Rolls-Royce designed engine that uses 20% less fuel than other planes it’s size, making it more environment friendly.
The Dreamliner’s inaugural flight for ANA was October 26, 2011. This is the first plane Boeing has put out since 1995, and there are 821 orders for the 787 from airlines worldwide.
