Additional Notes on the 787 Dreamliner –
The circulated interior air has more moisture (humidity) than other airliners.. so the dry skin, eyes, mouth and the always-thirsty effect is greatly reduced. Also, the cabin is pressurized to a higher degree, making for better passenger comfort, less ear popping, etc.
Did I mention.. the engines are not only 20% more fuel efficient… they are QUIET!
The number of seats, seat pitch and seating configuration of the 787 varies from airline to airline. Our economy seats on American’s aircraft were comfortable… the width seeming to be about the same as on other US carriers.. the pitch (distance from the seat in front) seemed to have an extra inch or two. Most notably, the seat cushions seemed much more comfortable than usual… I noticed that I did a lot less squirming around in my seat.

Our Verdict –
The aeronautical geniuses at Boeing have designed a next generation aircraft that enhances the experience of air travel while greatly reducing jet lag for all classes of passengers… not just those being pampered up in the front of the plane. Plus, the aircraft is “greener”… better for the environment.
