Its close proximity to the restroom is both a plus and a minus. Lack of floor storage during take-off and landing is another disadvantage of these seats. I sat next to my husband who was in 1A at the window, but it would have been very close if it had been a stranger. It features on the tail surfaces, reducing drag. There is a cold metal bar right in the middle of the seatback, and because the seats have absolutely no padding Seriously, it feels like a park bench you can really feel that bar digging into your spine during the flight. If you value sleeping length, row 6 is awesome.

I was in seat 17A , the narrowest seat I have ever experienced. This lightweight aircraft can easily be recycled, because it consists of 50% composite, 20% aluminum, 15% titanium, 10% steel and 5% other materials, generating less waste and fewer chemicals than a similar aircraft. Space and seating The cabin looks alright. No more flimsy plastic pulldown shades. Once underway, there was no cocktail service; the drink offered was what I wanted to drink with dinner. The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is displayed statically at the 2014 Farnborough Air Show before the first shipment.

I would definitely fly in this cabin again. In May 2007, final assembly on the first 787 began at Everett. It was extremely uncomfortable and impossible to sleep. The prototype Boeing 787 underwent taxi tests at in November and December 2009. Its also better than the aisle seat in the window pair, as this means someone will be constantly climbing over you.

So far, United Business is the worst seat. Sure, the tabletop storage with charging is cool. Boeing completed detailed design for the -10 on December 2, 2015. The 787-8 and 787-9 have 50% : the wing, fuselage and systems of the 787-8 had required radical revision to achieve the -range goals of the 787-9. Also, location for biz class pax is awkward.

The amenity kit was Cole Hann and really nice. Pros: Decent padding, at least for at 7-9 hour flight. Customer discussions were continuing in early 2006. The aircraft also features raked wingtips to further improve fuel efficiency. On May 3, 2009, the first test 787 was moved to the flight line following extensive factory-testing, including landing gear swings, systems integration verification, and a total run-through of the first flight.

I'll give a dishonorable mention to the coffee served with breakfast- it was truly terrible, to the point of being undrinkable brown fluid. I never had that kind of squished feeling on a 747. Additionally, the United 787 has older seats that are not the latest Polaris business class seats. There is no floor storage for this seat during takeoff and landing. Don't plan on any peace and quiet in this awful seat.
