Been searching the net for pics and found a few, either simulator or flying bird as Boeing calls it.

There must be more out there but need more time.

Looks ok. I prefer the 777 & 737NG cockpit though! The 787 cockpit looks like what you'd expect in a space craft, and in my opinion it just looks odd.

Not uncommon to feel that way when things change drastically. Also not uncommon is something like this looking totally normal years from now and what we think looks good now will be percieved as dated.

You can tell some long hours are being invested in the project - that guy at the controls looks like he's been up way way past bedtime three days ago.

Fun fun fun...

I love it, it is clean, uncluttered and the displayes are HUGE. I also love the HUD's. I could never understand how HUD's became pretty much the standard for military applications, yet not so for civil applications.

Now thats what I call a Volvo cockpit or very luxurious. It looks very cozy. Do the seats come equipped with heaters?

More important than looks, it looks to be very functional and user friendly for the pilots. Can't wait to see it in service!!

I'm just glad they went with gray instead of that abhorrent brown. This looks much better then the 777 cockpit for example.

Looking good!

The same place they are on a lot the other newer planes....long gone. Most planes have mini PFDs installed to replace the old mechanical airspeed, attitude indicators and altimeter. Also there is a flight director so there is no need for a nav aid backup.

That awful brown used to remind me of the ancient WWII era (or so it felt) steel desk I used to sit at in a converted warehouse when i first signed on as an engineer at Boeing - when desks were organized in long rows and our physical address was expressed as a column number. It always struck me how similar a Boeing flightdeck felt to the engineering office spaces. At least the flightdeck computers weren't powered by extension cords hanging down from the ceilings.

It's a cost thing. HUDs cost money and are normally not needed in commercial ops. Many military pilots need to keep the target and flight data in view at the same time, for example in combat. Civilian pilots have time to look down. The HUD helps of course.

Nowadays, the price of a HUD has come down to the point that this previous nice to have is becoming standard.

If I were piloting a 787, I would also demand an iPod connector to play my tunes.

Looks are subjective. Personally, I love the look of the new cockpit. It's clean, modern and "all business." The fact it looks like it belongs in a space craft is icing on the cake.

Someone posted earlier, and I agree, that the design will most likely endure far longer than that of previous (and most current) designs. I love it!

Simple, remove headset, insert Ipod, how many speakers does the 787 cabin have? And does it have subs?

Yeah, but the headset jack isn't the "true" audio-out for the iPod. To get the highest quality sound output (and remote control features) you've got to use the dock connector on the bottom of the iPod -- hence the need for an in-dash iPod connector. I've got this setup on my BMW and LOVE it. The sound quality is way better than what I'd get through the headphone jack.

Well, there is a serious issue here. The Airbus table is rated for the weight of a French flight attendant. Boeing would have to rate it for the weight of an American flight attendant, with the increased structural challenges that would entail.

Tongue firmly in cheek of course.
