The 787-9’s name was selected through a public voting process. With around 500,000 votes, “Dreamliner” was favored over such options as “Global Cruiser” and “Stratoclimber.”
The use of light materials, like carbon fiber reinforced polymers, offered more freedom to the designers of the aircraft. It has an elongated fuselage that’s more aerodynamic and more powerful.
Yes, it’s modern. But it’s also efficient! It consumes up to 20% less fuel than other Boeing planes, reducing environmental impacts and CO2 emissions by the same amount.
Silence: the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines were developed especially for the Dreamliner, with materials and assembly processes that reduce noise during takeoff and landing.
The seats have also received attention: to provide more legroom, they are slightly smaller. However, the seats’ smart design makes them extremely comfortable.
Other differentials include the lower cabin pressure, which makes passengers feel less tired after long flights, and the cleaner, more pleasant air.
A party? No! It’s the Dreamliner and its multi-colored LED lighting system, used to help travelers relax.
The windows are 40% larger than in previous Boeing models and feature an electronic dimming system – like a sunset inside the plane.
Another new arrival is the HUD (Head-Up Display), a navigation system mounted directly in front of the pilots’ eyes.
