RE: 787 Dimmable Window And The Sun

After reading this topic, I will probably avoid the 787 for trans-Atlantic East bound flights, especially during the summer. A darker cabin helps you get an extra hour or so of sleep before landing.

As far as I'm concerned this window is a gimmick and a FAIL at that!
