Wonderful cockpit. love the black color of the panel, and the way it's organized.

I have realised now, why Boeing named the plane 'Dreamliner'. One of the best looking cockpits ever! A320, A340 etc. cockpits look so empty, like a simulator compare to this one.

Can someone please explain what that "joystick" looking thing is (located where it would be between the captain's and first officers knees, just below and in front of the yolk).

It's a crank the pilot uses to adjust the rudder pedals so as to be confortable.

I just wish the stick was a joystick (like in fighter planes) and not that thing. But heck I'm not a pilot so what do I know.

The rudder pedal adjustment actually has an index number so the pilot doesn't have to guess. They can just quickly dial in the pedal adjustment to their favorite index number and then adjust the seat to that. That will give them the correct sight picture of the instruments and out the window.

Visitor from United States, it's Boeing's philosophy to have a yoke for control as opposed to the Airbus's joystick on the side. I think the former gives better tactile/visual feedback and also ensures that both the pilot and co-pilot see each other's input movements better than in a joystick environment, especially in the case of an emergency (something experts say contributed to the AF447 disaster).

What an office to work in. Its amazing to think that those throttles operate the modern super quiet GE-GenX and RR engines.

Great view of this awesome flightdeck. The ND with moving map and vertical profile is fantastic!
