Yes, there are wider seats and larger overhead bins in the cabin, designed by Boeing's interiors responsibility center. But when the 787 Dreamliner commences commercial operations, it will burn 20 percent less fuel and produce fewer carbon emissions than airplanes of a similar size. That's partly thanks to the 250-passenger jet's ultralight one-piece fuselage, which contains as much as 50 percent composite materials and also eliminates the need for 1,500 aluminum sheets and more than 40,000 fasteners. Bon voyage.
