Passengers who board the 787 Dreamliner, now almost ready to fly off to Japan, will find some impressive touches.
Boeing rolled out the first All Nippon Airways 787 for inspection last weekend, and some of the details and features long-promised by Boeing lived up to expectations.
Assuming the Dreamliner gets the thumbs up from the Federal Aviation Administration, Boeing is scheduled to deliver the jet next month. Boeing recently opened a plant in North Charleston, S.C., to build 787 Dreamliners.
Dont expect a total revolution in the airplane experience. Its the airlines and not Boeing that decide elements such as how much leg room youll have.
All Nippon Airways plans to fly the 787 on short-haul domestic routes in Japan, carrying a tightly packed 264 passengers in a plane Boeing advertised as carrying up to 250.
