Air Canada Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (C-FVND) arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) on a Perfectly warm Monday sunrise 2020. This is the fifth addition to our Air Canada Dreamliner study in which we aspire to photograph the company’s 37 Boeing 787s. The first Dreamliner was a 787-8 variant received in May, 2014; the first 787-9 was acquired in July, 2015 . C-FVND was delivered in February, 2019, making it Air Canada’s second newest Dreamliner and the newest still flying ( C-FVNF is currently parked due to COVID-19). Since then, it has served an incident free lifespan. In addition to large, dimmable windows and spacious interiors, the Dreamliner’s in-flight experience is ranked among the best. The most noticeable contributor to this is Boeing’s “active gust alleviation” system, which measures turbulence at the nose and adjusts various controls to mitigate the effect on the cabin. Additional systems ensure the cabin pressure remains higher than most aircraft, making the flyer feel like they are cruising at 6,000 ft in lieu of the traditional 8,000 (they are actually at 35,000-40,000 ft). Humidity is also substantially increased, partly due to better air conditioning units. The combination of these advancements means less headaches, less fatigue, and overall happier travellers.
