Last Friday, I asked some of you guys over at the Holy Smithereens Facebook page if there were any aviation lovers out there and what, pray tell, would your favourite aircraft be?
I loved that the FB community seemed not only to have a lot of frequent travellers but those who are in the aviation and travel industry too.
And with it came some strong opinions on the favourite aircraft, and the main voice seemed to be:
Well this is a good sign.
Because Boeing is celebrating a major milestone. In June 2014, Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner has operated over 100,000 commercial flights, and have carried over 20 million passengers.
This figure is kind of astounding to me.
20 million passengers…
That’s FOUR TIMES the entire population of Norway!
However, what’s more astounding to me is that I have NEVER been on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner yet!
But, all that is soon going to change.
When I received an invite to experience the Boeing 787 Dreamliner with Jetstar Australia, I of course said,
“Holysmith– I sure want to be officially added among the 20 million!”
And trust Boeing and Jetstar Australia to tickle my travelling feet in true Holy Smithereens style.
They are flying me to Bali where I am to stay at one of Seminyak’s newest luxury resorts, Double Six.
This is going to be a really short trip over the (semi-long) weekend but I am hitting THREE firsts:
- – My first international flight with Jetstar Australia
- – My first experience with Boeing Dreamliner 787
- – My first time in Bali, Indonesia
I’m leaving on Friday and what happens in Bali….
Be sure to follow , and I will be using the following hashtags:
And for the resort lovers and connoisseurs, be sure to also follow:
Now as for the flight , I will be travelling in both Economy and Business class so I can really relay what the sensory experience onboard the 787 Dreamliner is on all cabin classes.
I have read and heard great things about the Dreamliner experience – like bigger windows, higher ceilings, and higher cabin humidity levels.
And I of course cannot wait to see how they are IRL (in real life).
I would love to know, from those who are aviation experts, and those who’ve experienced the Boeing Dreamliner 787:
— What things should I look out for in the flight? Any interesting experience or facts about the Dreamliner?
And to those who haven’t been yet, let me know what in particular you’d like me to look out for in the flight.
Oh, and have you been to Bali? Any tips on what I can do there in 1-2 days?
