Highlights of the Aircraft 

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a class of its own. Passengers on board can now experience a smoother ride, with lower cabin pressure, advanced filtration system that enhances air quality and optimal humidity for cleaner air.

Each passenger can tailor their ideal inflight experience to their preferred choice. Those seated by the window seats now have control over the amount of light passing through the window in five dimmable settings ranging from transparent to dark. Windows on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner are 65% larger than the usual airplane windows. Lighting within the cabin is fully LED, giving passengers the feel of natural light from dawn to dusk. This mood LED lighting enhances post-flying experience by letting your body clock adjust to your destination’s time zone.
