BWI-Marshall Airport became the fourth U.S. airport for British Airways’ 787 Dreamliner aircraft Monday night. The British Airways flight from London’s Heathrow Airport arrived Monday evening, the inaugural flight for the upgraded service.
The airline will continue to use the Dreamliner to service its nonstop flights between BWI and London.
This particular Dreamliner is configured to hold 214 passengers in a three-class configuration.
Dreamliners are some of the most state-of-the-art planes currently in service. Their frames are made completely out of composite materials, and are Boeing’s most fuel-efficient aircrafts.
Features include higher ceilings, larger windows and overhead cabins for passengers, touchless faucets and toilets and plenty of options for in-flight entertainment.
The plane can also fly at a lower cabin altitude than other planes, giving passengers about 8 percent more oxygen, which can reduce fatigue, dry eyes and headaches.
