The flight was my first experience of the Boeing 787. I flew in the economy plus cabin and find the new economy plus to be significantly inferior to the old premium economy which used better seats.

Turning to the Boeing 787 I was very surprised at the very low build quality (at least as this relates to the internal fitting out). There were significant creaks, groans, an rattles emanating from the plane and the fit and finish of panels was very poor. This casts doubt on the quality control.

I was impressed by the size of the overhead lockers which were thought to be smaller.

In summary, I much prefer the Boeing 777, a much better experience.
