Boeing 787

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner arrived at Toronto Pearson CYYZ on March 1, 2012 as part of their Dreamliner World Tour. I was lucky enough to be able to take an hour off from work to slip over to the airport for some photos. The weather didn't co-operate but hey, it is what it is.

The 787 features larger windows, larger overhead bins, higher levels of humidity and increased cabin pressure, all designed to provide increased passenger comfort. With the arrival of its first 787 aircraft in 2014, Air Canada will be announcing enhancements to its award-winning Executive First lie flat bed suites and Economy class product to offer its customers industry-leading amenities on board.

Interior environment with cleaner air and higher humidity to increased comfort and convenience: Fresh air is introduced into the cabin via air scoops on the side of the fuselage. Like most current aircraft, the 787 system includes a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. Newly introduced on the 787 is an additional filtration system to remove odors and other irritants.

Lower cabin altitude: The 787's cabin is pressurized to a new maximum level of 1,829 metres (6,000 feet) - 610 metres (2,000 feet) lower than most other aircraft. Tests show that because the body absorbs 8% more oxygen into the blood at this altitude, resulting in a more comfortable traveling experience.

Dramatically larger dimmable windows: more than 30 per cent larger than today's similarly sized airplanes. Even passengers not seated at a window will be able to see outside. The windows also don't have conventional shades. Instead, passengers can regulate the intensity of light coming through their windows with the touch of a button. An electrochromic dimming system allows passengers to change the tint of the window from fully transparent to completely dimmed.

Bigger bins: Passengers can easily stow at least one large roll-aboard bag in an overhead compartment near their seat, minimizing the need to store bags beneath the seat. The bins store up and away rather than cutting into overhead space like conventional stowage bins. Easy for all passengers to open, load and close.

Dynamic LED lighting: generates less heat than conventional cabin lighting. The lighting can gently simulate a full flying day for longer flights, gradually changing through a spectrum of lighting from day into night.
