  1. What's up with that guy's acCENT? Why does he double the pitch and loudness of the last syllable of every senTENCE? Personally, I find the effect rather annoyING. I wish he'd stop squeaking like someone was stabbing him with a knife every few seCONDS.

  2. Agreed, that was an odd comment at the end. I mean I would call myself cheap, not poor for sitting in economy class.

  3. @kdraper2007 Using carbon composite material wasn't something new in aviation and using them would be higher risk. The problem is, neither Boeing or Airbus fully understand the characteristics of carbon composite and still hasn't develop a reliable method to detect stress and tear on new planes. If something abnormalities happen on carbon composite fuselage, production would halt and a severe damage to company PR. That's all.

  4. @sanfran91 not many considering that it's an entirely new aircraft using entirely new construction materials & techniques. Boeing is inventing an entirely new type of commercial aircraft, which if successful will revolutionize Commercial air transport.

  5. i do not work for boeing i know some one who work for Airbuss, and they will not be in compitition with them they will hopefully be very sucessfull in their product right now and its a fab air craft both techniqually and well designed – of course Airbuss also has the new latest aircraft in which iam not allowed to state at this time but its too will resemble on how economy seating will change dramatically once they launch the new airbuss aircraft ! so exciting

  6. its so untrue – dreamlines is much better for companies to make a profit what you saying man!!!! flying an a380 with 500 people on a 8 hour flight just when an a380 can fly for 23 hours around the world taking more than a thousand passengers – no company would do that its crazy your wrong – the dreamliner is in a different market to the a380 all togeather the only compitiotion is boeing vs airbuss yes i will agree but not these persific air line modules

  7. the last comment that was made was very rude and un true – the dreamliner will be a huge sucess in the way they market airline travel – for example who will want to fly on an 8hour flight to the caribbean with just 400 people on an 900+ seater aircraft – unthinkabe – unprofitalbe and no sence of wait distribution !!! the dream liner will suit holiday companies eg thomson & hopfully thomas cook jet2 and first choice instead of sole aircompanies like BA, VAA, AA Easy jet Ryan air BMI

  9. Rolls Royce engines. Hmmm…. I might just skip flying with Thomson for a while 😉 Wonder how much flying on that would cost =S
