Chances are you’ve seen this plane in the news in not such a good fashion. Thankfully, this jet’s bad rap is quickly dissipating due to it being downright awesome.
We booked the Dreamliner to Chicago a few weeks ago for a quick weekend trip to beat the heat in Houston. I know people who’ve flown this plane with United and experienced insanely long delays and various other issues. I was hesitant to book it, but have been dying to see what it’s all about. Since D and I weren’t on any specific timeline, I figured we could handle any unforeseen circumstances. (Sorry for the blurry pictures– I was trying to be a good boarder and move fast!)
The plane was spacious with tons of overhead storage. Each seat had its own screen with USB port to play movies/music from you own device or just act as a charger.
My favorite part were the dimming windows that no longer host those nasty shades. Instead of pulling the shade down, you had the option of 5 different dimming selections. The blue aura made the plane seem serene and immensely calm.
And take a look at the view of the wingspan. The wings seemingly curved up words and created a beautiful optical illusion.
On our return flight on the Dreamliner, we chimed in to help the “Continental” flight attendant make fun of the “United” flight attendant. She rewarded us with substantially goodies… :)
And a little celeb spotting is always possible on the plane. Hello, Marta Karolyi, US Gymnastics Coordinator!
Anyway, if you get a chance, book the Dreamliner just to enjoy the travel experience again!
