More than 200 Boeing 787s are now in service, circling the globe with 33 airlines. The state-of-the-art aircraft has been put through its paces over the past year, and its game-changing performance can now be confirmed.

And with another 1,000 plus aircraft on order, the 787 is fast becoming a favourite with passengers and crew alike.

Key features of the aircraft are numerous - less jetlag, larger windows, 20% less fuel consumption, 60% less noise, quieter cabin and a smoother ride overall. These are big claims and great benefits, so to explain further we've put together a 787 Dreamliner Infographic to highlight it's benefits.

Jason Dutton-Smith

I’m a passionate traveller and a first class nomad wannabe. I have a love for the written word and enjoy sharing stories that inspire travel. I like ordinary but love extraordinary. I’ll dance and sing karaoke to anything 80’s, will drink hot tea even if 40 degrees, love food and have a wicked sweet tooth. Architecture excites me, the window seat thrills me and anything aviation enamours me. I’m a perpetual dreamer who lives by Saint Augustine’s wise words – “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. My intention is to read War and Peace!
