Boeing 787 Dreamliner Media Preview @ Singapore Airshow

Today, I was invited on board Boeing’s newest and most technologically advanced commercial airliner, the 787 Dreamliner, for a special media preview tour. This tour was conducted as part of the media briefing and preview for the Singapore Airshow 2012, which will take place from Tuesday, 14th February through Sunday, 19th February 2012 at the Changi Exhibition Centre.

 

Yesterday, we caught the Boeing 787 coming in on its debut final approach to Singapore on runway 02R at Changi Air Base (East).

Since the Boeing 787 will be on display only on trade days, members of the public who are not visiting the airshow on trade days won’t be able to get a glimpse of it. But fret not! I’ve attached here in this picture intensive post, a huge chunk of photographs featuring the interior of the new Dreamliner! Even if you can’t be on the jet, you can tour the aircraft virtually here!

 

And for those who are heading over to the airshow from Tuesday to Friday, here’s a sneak peek before the real thing :P

In-flight entertainment screens for the Business Class seats.

 

And moving on to the Economy Class...

 

Each seat comes with a built-in in-flight entertainment system.

LED lighting in Economy Class makes the entire plane look much livelier and happier!

 

On to the flight deck!

 

The crew resting area is accessible via a small stairway just aft of the flight deck entrance.

 

Lastly, seats on board the Dreamliner are customizable depending on airlines and their respective orders.

 

That’s about all that I’m posting on the Dreamliner! Hope it suffices for you :) It is indeed a wonderful plane and a marvel to travel in, with all its advanced technology surrounding  you.

 

Hurry! Grab your (trade) tickets to the Singapore Airshow now and get to see the 787 before it departs for home in Seattle!
