Does Anyone NOT Want To Fly On The 787?

A few days ago my issue of Popular Mechanics arrived in the mail. In it was an article about the 787 Dreamliner. It talked about all the features in it that will improve passenger comfort (ex. this aircraft will have sensors that will detect turbulence and will adjust the wing flaps to counter it.)

When I fly on a plane I want to feel turbulence and I want to hear the roar of the engines. Even though I am interested in seeing the Dreamliner, I would much rather ride on an old 737-200 than this "flying hotel." At least then I will get the feeling that I am flying on a plane.

Just my thoughts,

Tim

I think it's called progress. If we didn't embrace new technologies we'd still be flying round on aircraft made of wood with fabric wings.

,but to answer your question, I would much rather fly on a new jet as opposed to an old 737-200. with the ever advancing technologies, I feel more safe and secure then ever. i realize the 732 is now a piece of history, but for me it's the new jetliners.

I would like to fly a 737-200 so I can say that I've done it. That is the only old airliner still in service in the US that I haven't flown. Moving forward, I'd like to experience th eDreamliner and all of the latest technology.

Airbus aircraft already have this system (Above A300 and A310).

Would anybody agree with me that this is one big marketing ploy for Boeing? You know damn strait the airlines are going to pack the 787 full, remove all of the "expensive" passenger toys, and the 787 from the passenger's perspective...will be no different than a 777 with the maximum seating layout.

ok, now I don't want this to be an A vs. B thing, but Airbus did the same thing with the whole have a casino or something in the A380.

Okay, who wouldn't want to fly on the 787, sure try out the 732 but AS is getting rid of them and I'm sure other airlines are to, so you don't want to fly on the 787 because it to technologicaly advanced? Smile

Hehe, I can't wait to try it out, as well as the A380 and the the 747-8 (if an airline buys some)

they can't get rid of all of the noise, plus the average business and family traveler doesn't want to be in turbulence, they want the ride smooth and as silent as possible.

Can't wait to try out the windows that "fade" instead of having to pull down on a cover.

have a look at this, you have to admit that it looks pretty cool Big grin

So all in all, I can't wait to fly it and other airplanes that are coming out soon !

I didn't want this to be an A vs B thread, I'm just explaining how the 787 Interior Images and the 777LR world tour airplane (with a 787 interior) are unrealistic in the airline world.

What I'm saying is Boeing is designing a "passenger-friendly" airplane, but the airlines don't care about the legroom and friendly seating Boeing is pushing for; they care about making a profit. They airlines, if they have the option, would rather decrease the legroom, use "thinner" chairs, and squeeze more seats into the airplane.

The average passenger won't experience anything different on the 787 than any other plane.

It's still going to suck as much flying overnight to Europe as it would on a 767, 777, or A340.

And besides, I would like to visit the cockpit, that would be awsome. I'm allready very fond of the 777 cockpit, it looks awsome. But I guess that ain't going to happend any time soon, if those terrorists don't find a different industrie to destroy!

Systems like the one mentioned spoil all the fun!
Give me the 732 any day.
But anyways it's very pleasing to the eyes, and is probably
going to be an incredible aircraft.

I love the DC-9, but if the DC-9 was put on a long overnight flight overseas, id rather have the dreamliner...

I can't wait for the 787 to come out. Although I'm not as thrilled about the A380 as some are on here. Hopefully I'll be able to fly it on one of my Int'l runs for my company. I would have to say that of all Western airplanes flying for the commercial carriers, the only a/c I wouldn't fly on would have to be the A300. I lost a friend on 587, and still don't forgive Airbus and AA for not spotting the problem, but that's for another thread.

I cant wait to go on the 787, the 777 is already WOW, imagine the 787 with those swept back wings....mmmmmm. As for the 737-200, ide rather walk...not a chance in hell ide get on one of those things again.

Im in agreement with DeltaGuy767 about the A380....i was initially excited but now im not so sure, i think it will have to be tried and tested for some years in commercial service before i get on one with confidence.

Bring on the 787

I've always wondered if we didn't have wars (especially WWII) what airliners would be like nowdays. The amount of technology developed during those 5 years were transferred to civilian aircraft and I believe that if those types of technologies (if not developed) would have set us back years. Any thoughts?
