This is because of the most distinguished feature of this aircraft, which is Cabin Pressure Control, and it allows cabin pressure to be set at lower levels i.e. equivalent to 6000 feet for B787 in lieu of 8,000 feet. This will enhance the passenger comfort in terms of less fatigue and more freshness during long flight-hours.

The other striking feature was the dimmable lighting on the large windows and a comparatively more leg space as compared to other wide-bodied aircraft, the experience was much more comfortable.

The lighting on the windows can be dimmed to five varying degrees and at the highest degree; it is a dark form of blue. This dimmed window provides a shade to the traveller against the sunlight.

What lends Dreamliner an unrivalled passenger experience is more headroom, lower cabin altitude and dynamic LED lighting. The comfortable and bigger seats, in-flight entertainment and mood lightings is very pleasing.

And if you happen to sit in the business class, the comfort of the seats was no less than the massaging experience.

Every seat was a window seat in the Dreamliner. Despite the Dreamliner being a double aisle plane, the passengers who sit in the middle row won't be disappointed.

The Dreamliner is one of the fuel efficient aircraft in the world. It consumes around 15 per cent less fuel as compared to Airbus 330 and around 30 per cent less as compared to Boeing-777.

B-7877 will commence flying to Europe and Australia from winter-2012 and it is expected that the aircraft will be a game changer for Air India.
