I love the 787 and i want to hear your optinion on it. Do you think its bad or good?
The 787 is one of the best airplanes Boeing has built in my opinion
Pretty revolutionary as it opened up many routes that weren’t viable before.
It’s alright, but it’s no A350 😂👀
It’s a great plane, probably my favorite wide-body aircraft.
Nice aircraft! Too bad they have engine issues. (Rolls Royce Trent 1000)
We have a 787-9 (LN-LNN) with engines removed at my local airport.
It’s possibly a top 10 aircraft ever made🤷🏾♂️
The 787 is the best modern aircraft produced. It gave way to many of the features on the A350 aswell as the recently tested 777X.
I’ve seen them, (from Norway here so pretty Easy to see)
In infinite flight it’ll be amazing once live instruments are added and in real life I hate it cause idk if the windows will be controlled by Flight crew or not
Meh, i didnt have a great experience when flying on it.
In terms of comfort, the A350 is usually better as it’s a bit wider.
Flew on it twice (and I’ll be doing it again this year) and I loved it. Love the way it looks (that wingflex) and had a very comfortable flight. I do like the dimming windows, just wish that most airline flight crews didn’t lock them for most of the flight.
Nope, the A350 would be better at cargo than passengers due to its huge cargo capacity and could go up against the 777F. But the 787 is more financially viable on these routes we’re talking about.
I’ve flown on it many times, but I hate it just because of the electronic windows 👀
Just to name some routes the 787 opened up:
- Los Angeles to Auckland & Christchurch
- Dallas/Fort Worth to Dublin & Munich
- Chicago to Prague, Budapest, Krakow, Athens, Venice, Barcelona
- London Heathrow to Portland, San Jose, Charleston, Pittsburgh, Austin, Nashville, New Orleans.
- San Francisco to Papeete, Melbourne, Osaka, Chengdu.
- Newark to Cape Town.
- Houston to Sydney
- Tokyo Narita to San Jose
- Tokyo Narita to San Diego, Dallas/Fort Worth, Boston
- Tel Aviv to Las Vegas and Orlando
- Brisbane to Chicago and San Francisco
Air New Zealand:
- Auckland to Newark
There’s still a ton more. In comparison, yes, the A350 is still great as it offers a lower-capacity alternative to some airlines’ 777s.
The 787 is an aircraft that changed the aircraft industry in every way. It was the most fuel efficient, it was quiet, the latest technology and of course the amazing mood lighting!
As a person who has flown on the 787 it is truly an amazing aircraft. Not to mention the incredible engine Revs on takeoff with them GEnX’s!
One of the best and one of the most important aircraft ever made! There’s nothing to hate about it in my opinion except maybe the cabin crew being able to control the dimmable windows
Please locate the route of conversarion in the OPs original message… lol
It’s my favourite plane :)
Best, plane, ever
