The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner takes the Sky Interior to a new level. The aircraft features a spacious, comfortable look with soft LED lighting, thoughtfully balanced for leisure, work or rest. The 787 Dreamliner also features large dimmable windows, more than 30 percent larger than today's similarly sized aircraft.
Passengers can regulate the intensity of light coming through their windows with the touch of a button. In terms of storage, passengers have plenty of space for their belongings, out of the way but within convenient reach. Other features include cleaner cabin air, lower cabin pressure and less noise so that passengers experience fewer headaches, less dizziness and fatigue while they are flying (see more details under the pictures).

Dynamic LED Lighting
The spacious, comfortable look and feel of the cabin is further enhanced by soft LED lighting, thoughtfully balanced for leisure, work or rest. The lighting can gently simulate a full flying day for longer flights, gradually changing through a spectrum of lighting from day into night. Because LED lights have no filament, they last 10 to 20 times longer than the incandescent lights that are used on airplanes today. The LED lighting also generates less heat than conventional cabin lighting.
Bigger windows, adjustable tint
The 787 Dreamliner features large dimmable windows, more than 30 percent larger than today's similarly sized airplanes - and larger than anything planned by the competition. Natural light and the views outside are integral parts of the passenger experience. Passengers can regulate the intensity of light coming through their windows with the touch of a button thanks to an electrochromic dimming system
Spacious, convenient storage
Passengers have plenty of space for their belongings, out of the way but within convenient reach. Passengers can easily stow at least one large roll-aboard bag in an overhead compartment near their seat, minimizing the need to store bags beneath the seat.
Cleaner, healthier air
Cabin air is cleaner on board the 787 Dreamliner than today's commercial airplanes. Fresh air is introduced into the cabin via air scoops on the side of the fuselage. Like most current aircraft, the 787 system includes a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter to remove bacteria, viruses and fungi. Newly introduced on the 787, an additional gaseous filtration system also removes odors, irritants and gaseous contaminants, some of the primary contributors to throat, eye and nose irritation.
Lower cabin altitude
The 787's cabin is pressurized to a new maximum level of 6,000 feet - 2,000 feet lower than most other aircraft. Altitude chamber tests show that because the body absorbs 8% more oxygen into the blood at this altitude, passengers experience fewer headaches and less dizziness and fatigue. In aluminum airplanes, pressurizing a cabin at 6,000 feet would be weight-prohibitive and cause structural fatigue concerns. But the 787's composite fuselage permits cabin pressurization at this lower altitude with almost no weight impact.
Noise quality in the cabin is an important part of the effort to reduce unpleasant symptoms that are sometimes associated with air travel for passengers and crew. A holistic approach to cabin noise quality, implementing multiple solutions throughout the aircraft, addresses causes of annoying noise and vibrations.
