Purely at random, sitting in Logan Airport, just saw the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Its composite fuselage makes it lighter and more aerodynamic than conventional aluminum-skinned planes, and since composites don’t corrode, the air conditioning system can introduce more moisture into the cabin air, reducing the dessicating effect of long-haul flights. The cabin’s ambient lighting uses LEDs which are programmed to mimic the change in light throughout a normal day-night cycle, in order to reduce the effects of jet lag. Cannot wait to see this plane from the inside. Some day.
