The 787 Dreamliner features an expansive inner architecture as well as dynamic LED lighting that replicates day-to-night light patterns, dimmable windows 65 percent larger than the competition’s and larger stow bins. It has been one of the most successful commercial airplane launches in the history of aviation with more than 800 orders valued at $164 billion.

"The designers leveraged the composite fuselage technology by providing substantially bigger windows and a more natural environment to dramatically improve the claustrophobic, fatiguing experience of air travel and to attract the airlines to purchase the 787 by making it more desirable to the end customer, i.e. the passenger." – Philip Swift, IDSA, Director of Industrial Design - North America, Crown Equipment
