Stratoclimber?

The name “Dreamliner” was selected in 2003 through a public voting process that included such options as “eLiner” and “Stratoclimber.” The winner, “Dreamliner,” idealized by Ross Coogan, a Boeing employee, received around 500,000 votes. “Global Cruiser” came in second place.

Yes, it’s beautiful. But it’s also efficient!

One of the main advances of the Dreamliner in comparison with previous models is its environmental efficiency: the aircraft can travel greater nonstop distances, consuming up to 20% less fuel and reducing CO2 emissions by that same amount.

State-of-the-art engines

The powerful Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines were designed especially for this model. In addition, their materials and assembly processes reduce noise during takeoff and landing.

Plastic, fantastic!

With an innovative design, the Dreamliner also uses materials like carbon fiber reinforced polymers, resulting in a lighter, more aerodynamic aircraft.

Big windows

Now it’s easier to take pictures of incredible landscapes on LATAM flights: the windows of the 787-9 are 40% larger than previous Boeing models.

Good night!

Sleeping won’t be a problem when flying on a 787-9: the cabin features a multi-colored LED lighting system, used to help travelers relax. The cleaner air and increased legroom also help to make sure you’ll have a good night’s sleep on the plane.
