Arutz Sheva spoke on Monday with Cabin Experience & Revenue Analysis Director Kent Craver about the new features and benefits of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

"The 787 Dreamliner is a fantastic passenger experience," Craver said. "A lot of that comes about because of the materials we use for the airplane."

"We're really focused on creating an aircraft airlines can express their brand, but regardless of their brand expression it's going to be a better experience when it's on a Boeing airplane.

"Dreamliner has large windows and it's electronically dimmable. Because it's made of composites we're able to have an effective internal altitude during cruise.

"That allows passengers to feel better about long flights, so they have less headaches, fatigue, and nausea."

Israel's EL AL airline recently purchased 16 Dreamliners, which will launch in September. They will be phased in gradually and replace the existing 747-400 and 737-300 fleets.
