China Southern Airlines B787 aircrafts feature a classic three-cabin layout and a total of 228 seats, with 4 in first class, 24 in business class, and 200 in economy class. The seats in first and business class can all recline 180 degrees to lie flat, while all first-class seats feature an independent laptop power source, noise-canceling headphones, a satellite telephone, and a 17-inch LCD HDTV, allowing travelers to enjoy a world of their own that is spacious, private, and quiet. Economy class uses the same seats found in China Southern Airlines' A380 economy class, providing each passenger with an individual 9-inch TV for their personal use.
Larger storage space
The luggage compartments offer an excellent user experience. The luggage compartments are easy to open, load, and close, while also providing ample space to accommodate your full-size trolley case. The luggage compartments rise up once closed, leaving you with more headroom.
Extra-large, electronically controlled windows
The extra-large windows allow passengers in every seat to appreciate the amazing view outside. You can also switch the window between light and dark at the touch of a button, enabling you to continue enjoying the view outside even in fully dark mode.
Multicolor LED lighting brings the feeling of blue sky and natural light into the cabin. The brightness and color can be switched for different stages of the journey, such as boarding, cruising, meal, and sleep times. The soft and variable lighting will also help you to adjust to the transition between time zones on long-haul flights, allowing you to arrive at your destination refreshed and alert.
Fresh, moist air
HEPA filters remove odors, irritants, and gaseous pollutants from the air, bringing fresh air into the cabin and letting you breathe in comfort throughout your whole flight.
Comfortable cabin altitude
787 cabins are pressurized to the equivalent of 6,000 feet, some 2,000 feet lower than other aircrafts. This improves the absorption of oxygen into the blood, reducing headaches, dizziness, and fatigue during the flight.
Greater stability in flight
Stable navigation technology allows the aircraft's wing operation interface to precisely adjust to airflow conditions that could cause noticeable turbulence, helping to deliver a smoother flight. Lower engine noise, quieter air conditioning, and advanced vibration-isolation technology in the cabin all help to minimize noise disturbances in the cabin and make the journey quieter.
New composite materials
The 787 uses reinforced carbon fiber composite materials that are stronger and tougher than traditional composites or steel, making the aircraft more efficient and reducing fuel consumption. Composite materials are not subject to fatigue or corrosion, which reduces planned maintenance and increases flying time.
Advanced piloting systems
Dual head-up displays (HUD) display key flight information on telescopic screens that can be moved within the pilot's line of sight, giving each pilot a simultaneous view of both the overall situation and key flight data, enhancing flight safety in different weather conditions.
Eco-friendly, high-performance engines
General Electric (GE) provided a new generation of engine technology for the 787. The new GENX models were developed from the mature GE90 engines, with the systems optimized for increased efficiency. The indented fairings on the engines serve to reduce noise, improving passenger comfort while facilitating energy savings that help the environment.
