Probably trying to polish its current poor image, Boeing invited Fortune Magazine to get an inside look into the Dreamliner factory, secret orgy quarters, and the showroom, in which—after spending $150 million on an empty aircraft—you have to pick the seats, including their A/V entertainment equipment (like whopping 23" LCD monitors in first class), and even the coffee maker. Head to Fortune to see the entire video and gallery. [Fortune]
This happens over and over. Every time a new model comes out from Boeing we see concepts of how nice and spacious the plane is.
Then you buy a ticket and board your first flight on the new aircraft, and you wind up with your knees in your face and your elbows jammed into your hips.
They talk the talk but can't walk the walk. Not that they leave any room to do so...
