It’s the little things in life.
This aircraft truly is a ‘Dream’ liner and we’ve put together a brief list of the little things that set it aside from the rest.
Cabin Headroom – Over 6 foot at its lowest point, which makes the whole cabin seem huge.
Bigger Windows – All windows are 30% bigger on the Dreamliner giving you unprecedented views when in the air.
What, no blinds on the windows? – That’s right, the windows on the 787 can be dimmed at the touch of a button.
Mood Lighting – Sounds exotic, but the lighting on the Thomson Dreamliner is high-tech and can mimic things like sunset or dawn and keeps your body clock in sync.
Seatback Entertainment – Plug in your iPod/iPhone or tablet computer and watch movies or connect your digital camera to view your holiday snaps.
The Thomson Dreamliner is made from ‘composite’, a selection of different materials meaning it is lighter, stronger and more aerodynamic.
Superfast – The 787 can fly upto Mach 0.85 or 640 miles per hour. Boeing’s 777 aircraft can fly at 560mph and the Airbus A380 double decker flies at 587mph.
Smooth – The Thomson Dreamliner is fitted with turbulence sensors on the rear wings meaning a smoother all round flight, even if your prone to travel sickness.
More oxygen is pumped into the cabin during your flight so you’ll leave the plane feeling fresher.
Quieter – They say the 787 is upto 60% quieter than conventional aircraft on take-off and landing, and substantially quieter at cruising altitude.
Due to brand new engines and the materials used to build the 787, it produces around 20% less carbon than other aircraft on a standard flight from London to the USA. The Thomson Dreamliner can also fly upto 8,000 miles without the need for refueling, enabling you to spend less time travelling without the need for changing aircraft.
