Interior of the 787 Dreamliner airplaneToday is follow-up post day!

Boeing’s hope for the future successfully completed its maiden flight yesterday.   The 787 Dreamliner, as mentioned here in November, has many new features that will improve passenger comfort.  We were most excited about the change in how it maintains cabin air pressure and how this benefits passengers through improved air quality.

Just as with the Fitbit Tracker, but infinitely more important to our economy, the Dreamliner has been beset by delay after delay during its development and testing period.  I hope that this first flight will help them get through the final testing phase and into ramped-up production.   They have a backlog of 865 on order – that’s equivalent to a little over 1.5 billion Fitbits (in dollars) and will definitely help put some people back to work.
