Horizon Views

Horizon Views

Planned appearance 787 Dreamliner – Economy Club

You’ll get a view of the horizon wherever you’re sitting on the 787 Dreamliner. This is because the seats have been carefully positioned and the windows are 30% bigger than those on your average aeroplane. When you’re ready to sleep, simply dim the windows at the touch of a button.

Room Overhead

Room Over Head

Even at its lowest point, the Dreamliner cabin is over 6-foot high, so there’s a real sense of space.

More Oxygen

You’ll leave the plane feeling fresher when you fly on the Dreamliner. This is because its cabin pressure allows more oxygen to be absorbed into your blood.

Mood Lighting

Your body clock is more in tune wherever you’re heading on the Dreamliner, as the plane features a high-spec mood lighting system that can mimic things like dawn and dusk.

A Quieter Flight

The Dreamliner will generate 60 per cent less noise than standard planes during take-off and landing. It’ll be quieter in the air, too.

Quality Time

You can indulge in some proper ‘me’ time on the Dreamliner. It’s kitted out with state-of-the-art seatback TVs – and you can even plug your iPod into them.


Composite material

While standard planes are metal, the Dreamliner is made of something called composite – a combination of different materials. It means it’s stronger, lighter and more aerodynamic.

Ultra fast

The plane will fly at Mach 0.85. That’s the equivalent of 640 miles per hour – about three times faster than a Formula 1 car at full throttle.

Powerful engines

When it comes to powerful engines, the Dreamliner’s take some beating. Each one has enough power to supply energy to two million iPods at the same time.

More fuel-efficient

Thanks to its composite structure and revolutionary engines, the plane is more fuel-efficient and emits less CO2 – about 20 per cent less carbon on a flight from Britain to America.

A bigger reach

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner can fly about 8,000 miles without stopping, which means it can go direct to destinations other planes can’t reach.
