Nice one Matt, although some of those last ones look a little too high to be main deck (and too low to be upper deck) - bear in mind the ref position will be the flight deck i.e. between floors.

I still don't get why they put only 2 thrust reversers, with 4, the landing performance will be way greater... Reversers don't add much performance; most of it comes from the brakes. The reason there are no outboard reversers is the risk of FOD (foreign object damage) - due to the wingspan, the out...

What's wrong with the normal sunscreens? They're heavier (and markedly so on the 787's larger windows) - plus the ability to put them at ~50% tint means you can have a softer lighting in the cabin without forcing everyone to close their blinds altogether. Come to think of it, it'll be nice for peop...
