[HD video below] It does not matter how technologically advanced an aircraft may be, nor how elegantly it can fly, nor even how much less fuel it burns than other aircraft, if the interior is not a comfortable and pleasant environment to spend a few hours of your life.

That is one of the major reasons so many trade visitors, Boeing customers, and media from around the world, were so keen to board the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner which was on Static Display and in the Flying Display at the Farnborough International Airshow this week in England.

With so many people for Qatar Airways and Boeing to get through, time was very limited, rushed even, but as you can see from the HD video below we still managed to put together a little something so you can at least get a sense of what the new aircraft is like, and how the Business Class at the front, differs from the Economy Class at the back.

There is a lot of new technology on this aircraft, the cabin pressure and humidity is vastly improved over older aircraft, and, just like on an Airbus A380, gives travellers a far greater and more enjoyable flying experience. One innovation that does not yet appear on other aircraft is the electronic shutter. These shutters, replacing the old pull-down system, allow a passenger to select how dark they wish the window to be, and permit the cabin crew to operate all the shutters in the aircraft from a single control point. Business Class passengers concerned about the window in the toilet at the front will be happy to learn that those windows have the traditional pull-down system, ensuring no unwelcome surprises for Qatar Airways premium class passengers.

Qatar Airways new 787s feature a total of 254 seats in a two-class configuration of 22 in Business and 232 in Economy.

Passengers can catch up on their sleep onboard with fully flat 80-inch long and 30-inch wide Business Class seats, while Economy offers 32-inch pitch seats.
