PORTLAND, Ore. – One of the world’s newest and most advanced passenger jets touched down at Portland International Airport on Thursday.
The Boeing 787, known as the Dreamliner, landed in Portland so employees at a Boeing paint facility located at PDX could check out the new jet.
The Dreamliner features several new features in the passenger cabin, including large dimmable windows and higher cabin humidity, which Boeing says increases comfort.
Boeing says the airplane also is more efficient than other planes.
