Do you have a link to the article? Perhaps? Or a link to any source with the same subject?

EDIT: Nevermind Found the source http://quote.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=conewsstory&refer=conews&tkr=BA:US&sid=avPN8IloIgGg- Can't wait to see the photos!

Is that a spaceship or what? The backs of the seats look a little bit too modern IMO. Other than that: Absolutely stunning.

I think it is great. It definitely looks like it has much better visibility than most planes. I hope that is not just a result of photo magic.

Leaning more towards the subtle evolution as they are talking about transitioning from the 777 to the 787 in only 5 days, remarkable features are the dual HUD's & the EFB (electronic flight bag) will now be a standard feature on the 787.....

It is an eyepoping evolution to be sure, but just an evolution. The envelope gets pushed a little further again. Looks good.

Call me old fashion, but I dont like it. Seems like an incredible waste of space and perhaps an over reliance on MFDs (at least 5 if I count right). I felt the same way when I saw the cirrus sr22s with garmin 1000s though. And whats with the seats? It looks like somethings hanging on the back of them, Id like to know what that is. Also, does anyone know if it has pull out trays for laptop/ electronic flight bags ala A380 or is it integrated?

Could be a pull up stairs for the escape hatch.

Wow... So clean and neat. Straight out of Star Trek...looks like a runabout from DS9.

From the design perspective it is brilliant. It looks like a flight deck that any pilot would want to spend 8+ hours in. Just spacious enough to play a little racketball or maybe do some stretching. (Hey Bob while you are at the controls I'm gonna do some sit-ups back here in the living room okay?)

I wonder...
Where is the rest area going to be on the 787? Is it going to be like in the 772LR above the flightdeck and cabin?

If that is the case would it be proper/safer to have the access to that from the flight deck?



Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!

Flight crew rest bunks will be behind the cockpit above the First cabin, accessed via a ladder near the front door.

Attendent rest bunks will be above the econonmy cabin, accessed from a ladder near the rear door.
