After two years of delays, Boeing’s 787 “Dreamliner” made it’s maiden flight yesterday
– The Dreamliner is the first commercial widebody aircraft to have a all composite fuselage (50% composite 20% Aluminum 15% Titainium).
– The Dreamliner will have an increased cabin pressure, due to the properties of composite materials.
– The Dreamliner is disability friendly.
– The first customer is All Nippon Airways (ANA) wich will recieve its first orders in Fouth Quarter 2010.
EDIT: The cabin pressure will only be increased to a minimum, while the cabin humidity will be increaed. This is due to the larger windows of the airframe and the relative strength of the composite fuselage.
