The Dream Tour airplane, ZA003, is outfitted with the 787’s special cabin features, including a welcoming entryway, dramatically larger dimmable windows, bigger bins and dynamic LED lighting.

The airplane is configured with a luxurious business-class cabin, an overhead crew rest compartment and an economy class section.

Dates and locations for additional tour stops, which are planned through April, will be announced approximately one month in advance.

At many of the stops, local media will have the opportunity to participate in tours of the airplane and discussions with Boeing executives and pilots.
