The things you have to worry about as a passenger, apart from the corona virus, are the uncomfortable 3-3-3 seating in economy class and the crew override option on the dimmable windows.
On some airlines that operate 787's the crew locks the windows in the darkest setting, preventing passengers to see the outside world clearly. This can completely ruin your flight experience.
For these two reasons I book away from the 787. For longhaul travel I prefer other aircraft types, like the 767 or the A330.
