Boeing 787 Dreamliner delivers comfort

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.
