This aircraft is 20 feet longer and four inches taller than its predecessor, the 787-8, with 30 per cent larger windows and 60 per cent less engine noise both inside and outside the cabin. The aircraft offers four-class configuration i.e. World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy), Club World (business class) and a new First cabin – a first for the airline’s 787 fleet.

Created specifically for the Boeing 787-9, the new First suites have been painstakingly designed based on feedback from First customers, to put comfort at the heart of the experience and make the very best use of the more intimate space.
