Even at its lowest point, the cabin is over 6 foot high, so there’s space, space and more space.
Travel in Economy Club and you’ll get a 33” or 34” seat pitch – that’s more legroom in economy than BA, Virgin Atlantic, bmi and Monarch*. Upgrade to Premium Club and you’ll get 38” – in other words, loads of space to stretch out.

You’ll get a view of the horizon wherever you’re sitting on the Dreamliner. This is because the seats have been laid out in a really clever way and the windows are about 30% bigger than those of an average jet. When you’re ready for a nap, simply dim the windows at the touch of a button.
You’ll step off the Dreamliner feeling fresher as its re-jigged cabin pressure lets more oxygen into your blood.
Your body clock will be more in tune wherever you’re heading on the Dreamliner. Why? Because it’s kitted out with a mood lighting system that can mimic things like dawn and dusk.
A Quieter Flight
The Dreamliner will generate 60 per cent less noise than standard planes during take-off and landing. It’ll be quieter in the air, too.
You can look forward to some quality ‘me’ time on the Thomson Airways 787 Dreamliner. It’s fitted with cutting-edge seatback TVs, which you can even plug your camera into.
While standard planes are metal, the Dreamliner is made of something called composite – a combination of different materials. It basically means it’s stronger, lighter and more aerodynamic.
Move over, Lewis Hamilton. This jet zooms through the air at Mach 0.85. That’s the equivalent of 640 miles per hour – about three times faster than a Formula 1 car at full throttle.
When it comes to powerful engines, the Dreamliner’s take some beating. Each one has enough power to supply energy to two million iPods at the same time.
More fuel efficient
Take one composite structure and a bunch of revolutionary engines, and you’ve got yourself a more fuel-efficient plane that emits less CO2 – about 20 per cent less carbon on a flight from Blighty to the States.
A bigger reach
Make room for some new stamps in your passport. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner can fly about 8,000 miles without stopping, which means it can go direct to destinations other planes can’t reach.
