By all reports you can see the POS fall apart on video in 3 minutes as well, except you dont need time lapse

the best part of the dreamliner is that as far as boeing can tell, hull damage means you just throw the airplane away and buy a new one

Going on a tour of the factory in Everett and seeing the 777 and 787 production lines in action is a very impressive experience.

You can also see the 747 Production line in action while it lasts.

If I recall from the tour they mention that the Everett production building is big enough to fit all of Disneyland and its parking structure inside.

Why would I want an airplane with a bowed wing?

I live about a mile from there and watch the Dream Lifter"s taking off. I watched the first 787 test flight take off also.

They have a battery fire problem, not a fall apart in midair problem.

Wiki says the Boeing Everett Factory covers 98.3 acres, and Disneyland covers 85. That's kinda cool.

"When the Montreal-based carrier took its first Dreamliner from Seatttle on its maiden voyage last Sunday it was greeted by a salute from a water cannon on its arrival at Toronto Pearson International Airport."

Wtf Canada?

3-3-3 seating in a fuselage that's 16in narrower than a 777, and they want to fly this Toronto-Tokyo? No thanks.

787 didn't seem any more cramped than a 777. Granted, I drink and pill myself to sleep when flying to asia

They also are going to fly it on their Tel-Aviv route.

Considering many airlines are flying 757s on long routes, this shouldn't be as bad.

Count on a Farker to give a serious answer to a punny question.

it's actually a traditional aviation thing not really sure why. "Water salutes have been used to mark the retirement of a senior pilot, air traffic controller or the first or last flight of an airline to an airport, or for other notable events. "

The seating is customer chosen, it would be up to air canada if they wanted to take their configuration to Japan. And then it would be up to the customer if they wanted to use that airline or travel with someone more comfortable like singapore air.

They forgot to show the hydraulic ram compressing passengers into their seats.
