The aerospace company Boeing has launched what they are calling the ’Dream Pass’, an interactive video that gives viewers and potential travelers an inside look of their 787 Dreamliner plane’s interior and exterior, as if the plane were a miniature museum. But viewers can do more than just stare, because there’s also an interactive component too.
This technology allows you to take real-time control of the view just as if you were sitting in the 787 Dreamliner’s cockpit and listen to either a pilots commentary on his experience flying the airplane, or the inflight audio. Also available are a exterior views of the fuselage and wings just as if you were perfroming the walk-around, preflight check of the aircraft.
Travellers seeking for an advanced glimpse at what the cabin looks like may be disappointed. The video doesn’t offer any footage of the seats, but according to North American Business Review, passengers can expect perks like ”larger windows and overhead bins, cleaner air and higher humidity, lower cabin altitude and dynamic LED lighting”.
Air Canada has already put in an order for the plane and expects to add 37 Dreamliners to its fleet by 2014, with an additional six jets later in the year. Those flying to and from Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal will be the first to fly on board the plane reports, though there are plans to add the planes to airports in Ottawa, Halifax, Calgary and Edmonton, reports the Globe and Mail.
“Premium economy is on the to-do list, I like the premium economy concept, but we haven’t confirmed exactly what form that will take and how many airplanes that will be on, whether it’s just the new ones or some of our existing fleet as well,” said Rovinescu in an interview with Australian Business Traveller.
