Nice write-up, sounds like the major new feature for normal people will be to use their laptop or pad with full charging and internet connectivity. I agree, have been to enough flights with Wifi on board now (UA 787 does not have it yet), time flies when you can work or browse the internet while flying, prefer it to watching old movies  .

How could someone do a MegaDo? I wonder if they ever do anything in PHX...


Either way, nice reporting as well, except for the closer- "You know what an Airbus is, now you know what the 787 is"

Well...yeah, A is a company; the 787 is a model

I guess if you had a lot of money and time on your hands you could do it  .

Sounds like fun..anyone here ever do a MegaDo?

I supported their first 787 visit on the prior MegaDo...it's a very interesting crowd. Hyper-enthusiastic though, they'd have a ball on a.net (many already do).

I was on the first one. We hard a very memorable lowpass over the runway in Tolouse in a Condor (Wir Lieben Fliegen) 757-300.

Here is another video of the MegaDOers on the 787, socializing, drinking, walking around the cabin, partying, and having fun.
