Very interesting and what a wing shape! Have a look at this shorter clip (3mins) which appears to show a vertical initial climb - wow. We are scheduled to fly on one in October https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KYbM-3E11Qo
My flights were mostly at night so the windows weren't that noticeable, except you could see they were large. But I definitely agree. The biggest things most people will notice when flying the Dreamliner is that they don't get so dry.
Did you get the light show of how many colours the cabin can change into ? The way it gives the impression of speed with the lights racing along the overhead storage bins ? My favourite part of a long flight is watching the colours of a sunrise above the clouds. Something that was missing on my last 787 flight because the Captain had darkened all the windows - to keep the passengers asleep.
Thanks for your comment, Garry. The flights were night flights so it was the intention to keep the cabin dark so folks could sleep. Really didn't see the great sunrise through those big windows, but that gives me hope for future flights! And no light show. Canadian captains aren't that flashy, I guess.
I just don't get this "it has to be dark or I cant sleep" "Please pull your shade down Sir. The Lady 5 rows back cant sleep" - "But it's only 3pm in the afternoon !!" I can sleep anywhere - light or dark - in a cold tent - on a hot sun lounger. I'm usually asleep before take off. Day or night. Maybe flying isn't as exciting anymore.
On my return overnight flight (Philly - UK) last week I had my headphones on. I was conducting the orchestra while "Queen" sang Barcelona. Fast asleep. There was a crash that woke me. The Trolley Dolly had crashed her drinks cart into the empty seat next to me. The Trolley Gaffer came down the aisle and said to her "What is the matter with you tonight ?" "This guy keeps putting me off " she said. And pointed to me. She stopped by later and explained she was only joking. "You're more than...
Most of us still have not flow on the Dreamliner, including me (my first flight is scheduled for Feb 2016). I'm really looking forward to the experience. Boeing has released a YouTube video that shows a Dreamliner going through it's...
I'd been following the development and troubled roll-out of the Boeing 787 "Dreamliner" for more than a decade, but only recently had my first chance to fly this aircraft on a trip to India. One of the appealing things about the Dreamliner is that its size and fuel efficiency open new travel routes, partially bypassing the usual "hub-and-spoke" model. I was among the first to fly the newly established Toronto to Delhi route (nonstop), a more than 14 hour journey. That's a long time to spend...
