I want to fly this bird

Despite cancellations from Air Canada, due to union woes, and Northwest and Delta, due to bankruptcy, Boeing's 787 Dreamliner has already notched up an impressive 200 orders in one year. It boasts all sorts of technological features I don't pretend to understand (lightweight poly-something), but my homosexuality is all a-twitter over its radical new approach to interior design.

I prefer it over Airbus' ostentatious double-decker 380 that will feature lounges, gyms, boutiques, and restaurants that remind me a little of the Love Boat and that the likes of me will never be allowed to see. Check out the swooping arches, enormous windows, and calm nightlighting on the 787.
