Boeing 787 Dreamliner delivers comfort

Hub-to-Newark flight shows off airy new Dreamliner’s strengths

NEWARK - Flying on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a civilized experience - which is saying a lot in this age of crowded airplanes, overflowing carry-on bins, and cranky passengers who have just waited in long security lines, shoeless and beltless, to be subjected to full-body scans.

I flew on an hourlong 787 flight from Boston to Newark Monday with airline executives, Boeing employees, investors, and members of the media who wanted to know what it is like to travel on the plane, which starts flying Japan Airlines’ new Boston-Tokyo route next month.
