I flew the 787 Dreamliner!

Jump to last reply

United was short-hopping it from LAX back to Houston. Can't remember the last time I was on a nice new plane on a domestic flight. Even in cattle class/award seat, it was a comfortable plane due to some of the supposed features of the new design (quiet, less vibration, cleaner more humid air, lower cabin altitude).

I couldn't figure out how to plug in headphones or earpods to get sound on the back-seat movie/ tv screen. it was a late night flight and I didn't care to bother the attendant to ask. However I noticed that you can select closed caption subtitles and watch without a headphone.

Each seat back had a USB plug so you could recharge your iPod.

The overhead bins were interesting, they were tall so that hardsided carryon bags could be stored standing on their sides, rather than flat.

Not the best person to comment on seat space since I have short legs.

I would certainly look for this plane again if I had a choice.
