Announcement: Better flying conditions for your lungs - Boeing 787
Posted: Rossoe @ Tue Aug 09, 2011 12:36 pm
I have kept a keen eye on the aviation industry ever since I experienced my first collapsed lung and subsequent operations - currently the cabin pressure on most commercial airplanes is around 8000ft, Theoretically current planes could reduce this pressure, but would have to shorten service intervals and lower the planes lifespan - increasing costs. The latest Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with it's composite fuselage design brings some much welcome improvements to cabin pressure and air quality :

Breathe cleaner air – current aircraft have very clean cabin air, relying on technology used in operating theatres. The Dreamliner will have even better air quality due to an innovative purification method known as “gaseous filtration”, ensuring less unpleasant smells and reduced throat irritation.

new composite fuselage structure enables lower altitude cabin pressure as the internal pressure will be equivalent to 6,000ft as opposed to the standard 8,000ft. Therefore, the body adjusts more easily to flying, resulting in less travel related headaches, sickness or fatigue.

Reduced jet lag symptoms – use of advanced materials in the manufacture of the fuselage (which are corrosion resistant) and improved technology means higher cabin humidity when compared to other commercial jets. This will reduce symptoms of dryness and dehydration, which can cause jet lag.

Ozone is removed from outside air; HEPA filters remove bacteria, viruses, and fungi; and a gaseous filtration system removes odors, irritants, and gaseous contaminants.

If you are worried about flying because of your lungs - fly a 787 Dreamliner. Most major airline's are receiving first batches of these planes by mid 2012
