Cabin Width On 787

Tue Sep 15, 2009 9:46 pm

Does anyone know what the cabin width in terms of feet are on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner? I checked on the Boeing website, and it said that the "cross section" is 226 inches, I am not sure if this refers to the cabin width?

That's the width of the fuselage (i.e., outside one window to the outside of the window on the other side). You can take off about 6 inches (diametrically) to get the cabin width, +/- maybe an inch.

Quoting Propilot83 (Thread starter):

It will vary according to height above the floor, but it's typically quoted as being about 5" wider than the A330's cabin which is 208" across at the widest point (the fuselage is 222" diameter), so around 213" isn't going to be far away.

Boeing's preliminary ACAP only shows the outer dimensions, however, using the seat and aisle dimensions, at it's widest point (the armrests), you are looking at a distance of 5.47m / 215 inches.
