    I often wondered why they don’t use these wide body planes on short busy routes instead of Embreaer or similar smaller planes on some routes. Seems like every 15 minutes there’s a New York to Charlotte or New York to Atlanta etc.

    As always, great video ! interesting and informative. Thank You for the effort you put into these posts. I'd like to think that every time my wife and I fly, there is a flight crew as intelligent, professional, well trained, skilled, and experienced as you.

    I remember picking Dreamliner as a name for 787 on their web site.

    Have to admit that I still prefer the Airbus A350. It's a little bit quieter and the ones I have flown just have better seat space but that has nothing to do with the airplane but the airline seat configuration. Apart from that, I would say that the two airplanes are very similar experience wise.

    I've flown on a 787-9 on KORD-RJAA (approx. 13hrs) / RJAA-KDAL (approx. 12hrs) and on a 787-8 on RJOO-RJAA. All on JAL, all in economy, specifically seat F in an 2-4-2 configuration (starboard side middle seat of the middle 4. Yeah, I got the middle seat three times in a row.)
    First one was KORD-RJAA. This was a flight of many first-evers for me, the biggest one being first ever flight to Japan, but the ones that are relevant to this comment are that it was my first ever flight in a widebody, first ever long-haul international flight, and first ever flight in a Boeing 787, a plane I first laid my eyes upon years and years ago in a movie shown at the Air and Space Museum, and one that I had longed to fly on from that day so many years ago. So yeah, a lot of happy memories associated with this flight.
    Overall, it was a pretty comfortable ride, and I didn't feel too tired when we landed (though that could've just been me being really fucking excited.)

    Why do the window shades need to be open during takeoff and landing?

      I believe it's mainly to allow emergency responders to see into it, and passengers and crew to see out, in the event of a crash/incident.

    Did they just go straight to 787-9, 8, and 10? No 787-100, 200, 300, 400, etc?

    350 XWB or Dreamliner... prefer 350, it flies much more comfortable.

    As quiet or quieter than say sitting towards the front in a 717 or MD88/90? The 717s seem especially quiet to me.

    Funny you mentioned Norwegian Airlines long-haul flights. The one time I've been on a 787 was exactly that.
    I was in about the same part of the plane you were, but I didn't get a window seat so I didn't get to try the electronic shades much, just when the passenger next to me got up to the bathroom and I got to play with it briefly, and I didn't get it. Our seating configuration was 3-4-3. (I was in the middle of one of those 3s.)
    I noted there was a significant "whooshing" sound during climb-out after take-off. Aerodynamic noise from slats or flaps?
    I'd heard about the higher cabin pressure, but my watch's pressure sensor said were about 6000' equivalent most of the flight, as opposed to a more typical 7000-8000'. Not sure how significant that is. I had no way to check humidity.
    Unlike your flight, we landed hard, and also unlike your flight, no screaming kids! First time for everything. The ones nearby were content with movies and video games.

    Are you sure about that? Search and watch 787 broken dream on Utube. I will not fly on the 787 and the 737 Max. If the people that build the plane say they would not fly on one, would you?

    The A350 is really the best, Americans don't want to admit 😛 I flew both several times for long haul flights and yeah, no doubt about the A350 being better.

    Arrived to an old video lol.
    I've did too an A350 ride with Asiana RT from SFO-ICN yes it was a great super comfortable ship even going back in economy. (Oct 2018)
    Also at end of October 2019 I am going to have mi first Dreamliner ride PTY-CDG and AMS-SJO. My only concern is not new but was recently posted again by KLM, related to the poorly managed assembly and quality control issues of the South Carolina Boeing plant... they BTW must return asap to focus on safety and quality and less into calendar deliveries.

    That electronic shade thing is the single worst invention in aviation history
    A vastly better way to do it would be to overlay an LCD matrix over the window (like a welding mask) and let you choose how dark the LCD becomes (without the ability for the crew to lock it or override it)
    An LCD can darken within nanoseconds when a voltage is applied to it, much faster than what Boeing are using in the 787 windows now, LCDs can also go completely dark, even with sunlight (a lot of modern welding helmets use LCD panels to darken the visor)

      You made me laugh at that, but seriously, I wouldn't be surprised. Ryan Air doesn't have any 787s yet does it?

    • MWB Gaming
      MWB Gaming 25 days ago +1

      @T MASSON yeah the ability of the crew to lock lock the window dimming switch definitely the most infuriating thing about the 787, if I'm flying during the day, or through an area where there is something cool to see at night, I actively try to avoid the 787 purely because of how much the crews here in Australia love to play let's lock window to the darkest setting when there's something cool happening outside
      I wouldn't be surprised if budget carriers start making people pay to look out of the window

    • T MASSON
      T MASSON 26 days ago +1

      My only gripe with the electronic blind is that you can't open it at night to watch Aurora Borelalis. If you fly SFO or SEA to London during the winter take a window seat on the port side and there is a good chance to see Northern lights - but BAs 787 cabin crew are not obliging - or maybe I'm asking badly! But the 787 is a lovely plane to travel in!

    The composite makeup of the body also allows for higher humidity in the cabin and that makes for a more comfortable ride.

    I used to be a big frequent flyer on Qatar. I changed company when they put 787 on my route. The lighting and windows make no difference, you are crammed in like sardines and most important of all the whole cabin reeks of toilets.
    I use my own headphones on flights. For some reason the volume is set very high on Qatar 787 so Its impossible to use my headphones. The Qatar headphones are useless which means no audio visual during the flighyt.

    I'm not anti Qatar by the way. The best economy seat in the sky is the rearmost section upstairs on the Qatar 380.

    I flew on the 787 with JAL last year from KSAN to RJAA aswell as my return flight. I loved the plane and also my first international flight and wanted to pick an airline other then like United or another US airline which I fly on alot. I did feel a big difference in the 787 then when I flew on Hawaiian's 767. My only complainant against the 787 is the windows, when flying to Japan it never got dark and the tinting helps but its not enough for me personally, other then that, great aircraft love it and can't wait to fly it again.

    The A350 was the respond to the B787 and came to business about 10 years later. It’s like comparing the 747 with the A380.
