    The 787 is my favorite jet!
    But when going from Heathrow to NY I have to be able to stretch out so I always ask my dad if we can go on BAs 747 if possible. It costs a little more but it’s worth it on a long flight. Especially going to like Quitar.
    Emirates always take great care of me and my dad.

    I’d have been like you got 10 seconds to quiet your Dirt Demon or I’m duct taping it’s screaming oriface.

    Mentour, I’m about to purchase tickets for me and my family to fly across the Atlantic, many of the airline companies are using 787s. Would you fly in one again after the loose metal shavings and tools found inside and the alleged use of defective parts by Boeing employees?

    Sadly Boeing is a company in dire straits, and they only have themselves to blame. Not going to fly on any of their products ever again. Their management structure is to blame, together with American exeptialsm.

    You gave your view as passenger. What about a pilot? I know it’s a smooth n sophisticated plane. What about allegations of putting profit over safety during 787 manufacturing n development ? See Al Jazeera program on this.

    Customers like the 787, but here are the sober facts:

    It took Boeing nearly eight years to get its 787 Dreamliner off the drawing board and into service with the world’s airlines. The total cost for development and manufacturing has been estimated at $32 billion. The initial estimates called for a development period of around four years and a budget of about $6 billion. An $26 billion cost overrun.

    Boeing is able to account for these massive losses by using “program accounting,” which allows the company to book future profits now by spreading out the costs and revenue from unfilled orders for the 787s on Boeing’s books. In a January 2019 report, The Wall Street Journal reckoned that if Boeing used standard accounting it would have reported an operating loss of $69 million in its commercial jet division for the first three quarters of last year. In simpler words: Boeing is using earnings from deliveries in the future not to show todays losses.

    And that was before the 737 Desaster.

    The longer I do research on this company, the more sceptical I get.

    I really appreciate your posts. Believe it or not it helps me sometimes as I am a very anxious flyer. I have a phobia but I still get on the plane but am constantly nervous. Your videos help me sometimes before I fly. Thanks again.

    I disagree. 787 is very unreliable aircraft. Very i mean VERY. At this moment 1/3 of LOT Polish Airlines fleet (yes 1/3) is not flying due to Trent 1000 engines problems. Few months ago it was around 20% So it is getting worst, and will be no better! The cannot make pernament fix for engines at all, only reparing engines (blades) without any improvement in technology. LOT airline is leasing now (ACMI) 3x a340, and probably will get few additional 777-200 to cover the routes. Situation is dramatic!. Please compare it with 97.8 percent operational reliability of a350...
    LOT also should have 15x 737 MAX... You can imagine how deep they are due to cooperation with bOeing...

    Been a passenger on KLM 787 and Cathay Pacific A350. It depends what you need. Extra leg room?: KLM. Better inflight entertainment and slightly better quality seats and air-conditioning?: A350. I guess it really depends on preference. But both good planes as a passenger:)

    Airline pilot used to be a glamorous, high status and very well payed profession.
    Nowadays however it is regarded more and more equally to long distance bus drivers.
    Which has always been a badly payed profession of a rather low status, allthough in many ways just as demanding and with the same responsabilities.

    "actually" better? Are you surprised? I'm not. The 787 was/is groundbreaking. Airbus inevitably "me too'd" it.

    Chairs are chosen by airlines. Chairs is not an integral part of aircraft. Different seat features can differ based on what airline you fly. You can discuss chairs if you talk about airline but not if you are discussing aircraft characteristics.

    I flew the 787 in Business Class last summer from LAX to Warsaw. Their Business Class is actually 1st Class. All lay flat beds. Very comfortable. Very nice aircraft. I also didn’t feel as jet lagged. I believe their pressure system may be the reason.

      It makes people talk... But yes it is a gimmick, maybe it what Boeing has become nowadays ? (Some Mclaren cars have it also as an option on the glass roof, but it seems to be a lot faster to operate than on the 787.

    All 737s have 3-3, most 777s have 3-4-3, and most 787s have 3-3-3 seating in economy, all with uncomfortable 17" wide seats (Max. 17" seat width due to cabin width).
    All A320/321s have 3-3, most A330s have 2-4-2, and most A350s have 3-3-3, all feature much better standard 18" wide seats. (Max. 18" seat width due to cabin width).
    Over a couple of hours? Airbus!

    Alaska has USB and regular 110v outlets for charging stuff on the seatbacks in their 737NGs now.

    The 787 suffered from being the bleeding edge, which then became the bogey Airbus could easily leapfrog with far greater certainty and much less risk. It’s a common phenomenon among most industrial segments.
    However, Boeing, which once was the global gold standard and often defined the gold standard, in effect, it became tragically short-sighted as evidenced by embracing the false economies of the 737MAX compromises and engaging a trade canard versus Bombardier, the resulting debacle now has rolled into 777X and shaken Boeing’s reputation perhaps irreparably - all by allowing itself to be distracted from designing and building excellence and letting the outcome yield the kind of results that enabled it to dominate commercial aviation and competitors for almost a century.

      John Franklin because of an emergency like an aborted takeoff happens, you need to be able to see any threat to safety outside

    I have a suggestion for a future video: Instead of pointing the camera at the engine intake on takeoff, keep watching those raked tips on the mostly-composite wings! They can easily flex much higher than the crown of the fuselage, more than any other commercial airliner. I'd like to see that, the next time you get to fly in a 787.

  • William R Warren Jr

    As an ex-Boeing guy, your takeoff footage brought tears to my eyes. Thank you.

    It does not matter how nice it looks in Qatar Airlines, because most of people fly cheap and with discounters, so all those beauty will not be there. :) Interior will be way cheaper.

    Interesting that you mentioned Norwegian Airlines Shuttle. They had heaps of problems for several years with their Dreamliners. Cannot have been very good for their company and their reputation.

    The seats and inflight entertainment are selected by the airline and usually provided by a third party supplier.

    I would argue the 787 is not as good as the A350 when they compete in their most common layouts. Ie both having 9 seats across. It's too cramped on a 787 with 9 seats across, especially if you make the mistake of paying extra for the front row where the seat is even narrower to accommodate the TV and tray table in the arm rests. The only time the 787 wins in with JAL which only uses 8 seats across.
    Now I actively avoid 9 across 787's and 10 across 777's for long haul flights

    There are power plugs for charging PED’s. They are located in between the seats, low. 2 power plugs for every 3 seats.

    I like the part where they invented a more efficient airplane that can't carry as many passengers or as much cargo ie, revenue generation, as a 747. "look at how much fuel we're saving!" "look how much money you're leaving on the table with every flight."

    the only reason airline CEOs like new planes is that they get to have ribbon cutting ceremonies. They can't improve upon superior 747 performance, so they have to do something.......
