We were fortunate to be invited by American Airlines to view Boeing‘s new 787 at DFW International Airport. With it’s swooping blue design the plane looks like a sleek, airborne dolphin. However Boeing has spared nothing when it comes to  high-tech touches like electro-translucent windows that dim with the touch of a button, no old fashioned shades for this plane. Seat back entertainment centers for the entire plane are a nice touch and brings the 787 in line with what Airbus has offered on it’s products for awhile. First Class is over the top, as is the norm these days, with what amounts to little roomettes for each passenger,  with enough room to invite someone over for drinks. Alas, the full-flat reclining seat, unlike Singapore Airlines, only slept one. Maybe the 797 will have “First Class for Tw!o”
