A Dream Come True: Examining the Dreamliner 787

Katherine Sopranos served the Boeing Company as a communications specialist from 2004 through 2010. Katherine Sopranos’ responsibilities spanned supervising internal communication for all global happenings and facilitating media relations as a part of the team in charge of the 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Able to seat up to 335 passengers, Boeing’s Dreamliner 787 is not only the company’s most fuel-efficient aircraft, but also the world’s first large airliner to exhibit an airframe made up largely of composite materials.

The Dreamliner 787 took to the skies for its maiden voyage in 2009. In five years, the airliner has transported over 20 million passengers around the world. Boeing designed the Dreamliner 787 for fuel efficiency. To that end, Boeing engineers chose composite materials for the airframe due to their lighter weight and higher strength-to-weight ratio compared to material used in the construction of other aircraft.

The Dreamliner 787 was designed to feel roomy and open. Vaulted ceilings, large windows, and a capacious interior all contribute to making guests feel like they have more room. The cabin’s spaciousness extends to overhead bins, which are large enough to store full-size rolling luggage.
