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).

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.

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.

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

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).

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.
