Introducing the Boeing 787


Introducing 'Birthday Girl'

Coming to the sky near you soon, we will be launching our Boeing 787 Dreamliner on 28 October 2014. The aircraft's first route will be Boston.

We will begin rolling out the 787s to the east coast of the USA, before introducing them to our longer haul routes.

Get ready for an evolution in air travel.

The 787s will set the benchmark for in flight service and comfort and we've got some exciting treats coming your way.

Infinity mood lighting
Board, dine, relax, sleep and play all in perfect light. Adjusting to your destination time zone, you should arrive feeling brighter and less jet lagged.

More headspace
Enjoy a greater sense of space and move around more freely thanks to higher ceilings and overhead bins.

More oxygen and moisture
Cleaner air with a lower cabin pressure means you’ll feel more comfortable and refreshed.

The comfiest Economy seat in the sky
We’ve fitted the best in class Economy seats. More legroom and a comfier recline, making the most of the space around them.

The Wander Wall
Our Premium Economy cabin has even more comfortable seats and a new Wander Wall area where you can have a snack or stretch your legs.

Friendlier to the environment
The Dreamliner is 21% more fuel efficient than other similar sized aircraft in our fleet, which means much less carbon dioxide emissions.

Building a 787 is no easy task, but our friends at Boeing are progressing well and 'Birthday Girl' is beggining to take shape.
