I am delighted that my first 787 Dreamliner flight was on LAN Airlines, which on January 2 became the first carrier to offer international service on the 787 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) with non-stop flights to Santiago, Chile three days a week (Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) and with daily flights to Lima, Peru beginning in February.
In addition to pre-flight festivities that included short speeches and a ribbon cutting, there were snacks:
During the mostly night-time flight, we experienced just a few examples of the airplane’s LED lighting options, but before “real” passengers boarded, a full light-show was underway while press visitors and special guests toured the plane.
