    The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an all-new, super-efficient family of commercial airplanes that brings big-jet ranges and speed to the middle of the market.

    In response to airlines' overwhelming preference, Boeing designed the 787 family with superior efficiency, which allows airlines to profitably open new routes to fly people directly where they'd like to go in exceptional comfort.

    The 787 is an all-new design with no legacy constraints, and it achieves many firsts in commercial aviation. The 787 makes the best use of available new technologies. Materials, aerodynamics, systems, and engines have been chosen and designed with the overall, integrated design at the forefront. Design choices never optimize one area at the expense of overall performance, economics, maintenance costs, or airplane availability.

    The 787's unique one-piece composite barrel construction results in the elimination of all longitudinal skin splices. This reduces not only weight and drag but also significantly reduces the amount of maintenance required.

    The materials selected for the 787 Dreamliner provide the lowest operating costs over the life of the airplane. Selecting optimum materials means analyzing every area of the airframe to determine the best solution based on the operating environment and loads experienced over the life of the airplane.

    The chief breakthrough material technology on the 787 is the increased use of composites. The 787 is 50 percent composite by weight. A majority of the primary structure is made of composite materials, most notably the fuselage.

    Composite materials have many advantages. They allow a lighter, simpler structure, which increases airplane efficiency, reduces fuel consumption and reduces weight-based maintenance and fees. They do not fatigue or corrode, which reduces scheduled maintenance and increases productive time. Composites resist impacts better and are designed for easy visual inspection. Minor damage can be repaired at the gate in less than an hour. Larger damaged sections can be repaired exactly like today's aircraft, through bolted repairs, or using a bonded repair.

  • Unrivaled Passenger Experience

    Unrivaled Passenger Experience

    From the start, Boeing designed the 787 family with the passenger in mind. Extensive research into what affects comfort led Boeing to many design innovations on the 787 family, including

    Large, spacious cabin: The 787’s cabin architecture creates a strong sense of spaciousness with its broad, welcoming entryway, large windows and vaulted ceiling. The 787 cabin is wider than that of the airplanes it replaces, so passengers enjoy more personal space, both physically and visually.

    Better lighting: Modern, adjustable LED lighting provides more lighting choices to create a relaxing environment.

    Largest windows in the sky: With the largest windows of any jet, on the 787 every seat is a window seat: Every person can see to the horizon, for a view like never before. The windows also dim at the touch of a button, allowing passengers to look outside when they wish and still maintain a dimmed cabin when appropriate.

    Cleaner, more comfortable air: The 787 combines new filtration, better pressure and more humidity to help passengers feel less dryness and fatigue.

    Smoother Ride Technology: Sensors on the 787 sense and dampen turbulence for a more comfortable ride and less motion sickness.

    Large overhead bins: There's space for your carry-on near your seat.

    Better seating options: The 787 offers the latest in seat comfort and technology.

    Noise quality in the cabin is an important part of the effort to reduce unpleasant symptoms that are sometimes associated with air travel for passengers and crew. A holistic approach to cabin noise quality, implementing multiple solutions through the aircraft, addresses the causes of annoying noise and vibrations, offering passengers a calmer cabin experience.

  • Quieter Communities

    Quieter for the Communities

    The 787 ensures that sounds of 85 decibels – which is slightly louder than a busy street intersection – or higher never leave airport boundaries. In fact, the noise footprint of the 787 is more than 60 percent smaller than the airplane it replaces.

    Ramp noise reductions are the result of improvements in airplane systems like the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU).

    A report issued by the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority determined that the Boeing 787 is significantly quieter than the airplanes it replaces, on average between seven and eight decibels quieter on departure and up to three decibels quieter on arrival.

    Exceptional fuel efficiency: The 787 family uses 20 to 25 percent less fuel on a per passenger basis than the airplanes they replace.

    Low maintenance costs: The strong, durable composites that make up the 787 fuselage contribute to a 30 percent reduction in airframe maintenance costs than for previous-generation airplanes.

    Mixed-fleet flying: Significant flight-deck commonality between the 787 and 777 benefits airlines that use mixed-fleet flying, scheduling pilots to fly more than one kind of airplane. Pilots who fly the 777 need only five days of training to fly the 787.

    Standard airplane: This philosophy minimizes variation while still providing options desired by airlines and leasing companies.

    Higher speed: At Mach 0.85, the 787 is as fast as the 777 and 747 and faster than other airplanes of its size. Boeing's flexible twin-aisle offerings allows an airline to have airplane families with the same speed, range and economics in three distinct sizes.

    More revenue cargo: The 787 family is an excellent cargo carrier, which is key revenue for most airlines, especially as they open new city pairs.

    More flying days: With its advanced, single-barrel composite fuselage and robust design, the 787 needs less scheduled maintenance than previous-generation airplanes, which translates to more flying days and more revenue.

    Nonstop routes: The 787 allows airlines to open new long-distance routes profitably, satisfying passengers' expectations for direct flights. To date, operators have opened or announced more than 100 new nonstop routes with the 787 family.

    Flexible seating configuration: Operators can configure the 787 interior quickly and in a variety of ways to match their market needs.

    Preferred passenger experience: Passengers want to fly nonstop to where they want to go on midsized airplanes, such as the 787, rather than connect through hubs on giant-sized airplanes. In addition, the 787 offers many new passenger-pleasing features that provide unprecedented comfort, convenience and a great flying experience.
