One of the most remarkable features of Boeing s 787 Dreamliner are the electronic dimmable windows. No more window shades. Instead, you press a button to decide how much light comes in.
For the 787 s first customer, All Nippon Airways, the windows don t go dark enough.
Reuters reports ANA is asking Boeing to come up with a way to make the plane s cabin darker because the dimmable windows are not dark enough for long flights. ANA wants to install the classic pull-down blinds on two of the already delivered 787s, which are used on long-haul flights, so passengers can sleep better.
Boeing reportedly has not said whether it will meet ANA s request or if any other customers have made similar requests.
