Continental unveils Dreamliner cabin

CONTINENTAL AIRLINES has unveiled its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft interior at the 2010 National Business Travel Association (NBTA) International Convention & Expo, conveniently held this year at its home base of Houston.  In 2011 it will become the first US operator of the revolutionary aircraft.  Big windows and a lower cabin altitude of 6,000 feet reduce the adverse physical effects of pressurization on customers.  The overhead storage bins are the largest in the industry, allowing space for every passenger to fit a standard-size carry-on bag in the bin above.  Following the display in the convention, Continental will exhibit the 787 mock-up fuselage at its Houston hub in Bush Intercontinental Airport's Terminal E. www.continental.com
