A 12-inch seat back screen for in-flight entertainment, 31-inch seat pitch, and six-way headrest for better neck support in its economy class seats. Sounds like a dream? You will get it all in Vistara's new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft which was unveiled this week.

Vistara has ordered four more of these airplanes, this one is the first and will be used on long-haul international routes. The plane arrived in Delhi on February 29 from Boeing's production facility in Everett, Washington to much fanfare.

You will get wifi as part of the inflight services, the first in India. If you travel business class, you get a monitor of 18-inch size. All the 30 seats are lie-flat and in 1-2-1 configuration. The fuselage is 6m longer, and it can carry more passengers (on an average 280). It is also more fuel efficient than the earlier generation aircraft. Have trouble sleeping on planes? They will have a special 'wellness lighting solution' called Human Centric Lighting which will help you adjust sleep patterns.

The plane made news in 2019 when the Qantas 787-9 Dreamliner completed its longest non-stop flight from New York to Sydney in 19 hours and 16 minutes.
