The Rolls Royce engines are designedto fly over 50 million miles. The environment friendly engines save large amounts of fuel, lowering operating costs for airlines.Reports have claimed up to 20% better in fuel consumption. That is huge as jet aircraft use enormous amounts of fuel in flight.
Some airlines such as Virgin Airlines, are experimenting with bio-fuels. Other airlines will be switching to bio-fuel as well. The test planes have performed flawless flights using the alternate jet fuel.
The Boeing 787 Dream Liner has been ordered and delivered in many countries around the world. Fuel supply inventory at airports will determine which grade or class of fuel is used most. Also some airlines purchase fuel through the "Hedge Fund Market" trying to fix their fuel costs. If they have a year long contract, they buy the fuel at the same price whether or not the market price increases or drops.
This is good for financial management as fuel costs are predictable, but can lead to airlines paying more if fuel costs drop dramatically.
A fuel saving jet is a smart choice for investors.The 787 Dream Liner is also built with this in mind.
Boeing has proven itself over time as the leading aircraft builder in the world. Their records prove it. That is something money can not buy.
The plane boosts bigger windows and higher interior air quality. The cabin is pressurized to similar aircraft but at 2000 feet lower. The wings on the aircraft are designed to flex giving it a smoother ride. Just like shocks on a vehicle, the flexible wings absorb a lot of the bumpiness when encountering rough air. The interior also has more headroom for taller people. It gives the plane a more luxurious atmosphere. There is no longer window shades to pull down. Simply push a button to electronically lighten or darken the windows.

Boeing Official news letter on the 787 Dream Liner Passenger Jet.
CNN reports on the new Dream Liner Jet.
The Dream Liner 787 will be popular with the flying public. The plane is a technical wonder. The horizon is view-able from all passenger seats. The windows are 3X size of normal planes.
The lighting controls help keep you in tune with changing time zones. The cabin is user friendly and even at its lowest point, it is 6 feet high. Higher cabin pressure allows the body to absorb more oxygen allowing you to feel fresher upon arrival destination. If a sleep is needed, the plane has a 60% reduction in noise over most passenger jets.
Technology does not take a back seat on this jet. The engineers have put many hours in on the design. The Dream Liner 787 takes passenger comfort to a new level. With its spacious interior, shock absorbing wings and quiet operation, the plane is in a league of its own. After primarily flights are done, any cliches they may find will be fixed. The plane is built with multiple manufacturers making the jet plane components. Then they are brought together and assembled. This makes trouble shooting much easier. Safety is an ongoing process at Boeing. Not just with the launch of a new model. There is no more precious cargo than people. We all have brothers, sisters, moms, dads and relatives that fly. So do the people who build these technical marvels. They would rather ground a plane than risk lives although the price is high in bad press and possible sales loss. The company looks at the "big picture "and puts safety first. The plane will be the envy of competitors in the same air-craft class. With its huge fuel savings, it will soon pay airlines to update their fleet. Customers prefer a sleek new jet over the old "cattle car".
