On Board RB's 787 Dreamliner

I was lucky (or unlucky as BI872 was delayed for almost 4 hours due to a "malfunction") to have the opportunity to fly on Royal Brunei's 787 Dreamliner which was on its maiden flight from Kuala Lumpur to Brunei last Saturday, 19 October 2013. You can smell the "newness" in the Dreamliner as you would in a new car. It's definitely more comfortable with the extra legroom (in economy class) as my knees were at least four inches away from the seat in front of me; in RB's other planes, my knees would be touching the front seat! The user friendly in-flight entertainment (with touch screen display) is also a plus. The special effects lighting in the cabin is a first I've ever seen and almost all the passengers were busy taking photographs. A talented young violin player was also on hand to entertain the passengers and a gift pack (consisting of an 8GB pen-drive, pen, passport holder, note pad and eye cover) was distributed to commemorate this maiden flight.
