La fin du chariot de nourriture et de boissons? A l'avenir, les passagers pourraient commander des repas sur leur téléphone et les récupérer dans des casiers à bord
The food and drinks trolley could become a thing of the past. That's because airline passengers of the future might be able to pre-order snacks on their mobile phones and then collect them from on-board lockers - and order food mid-flight that's heated up by robots in the belly of the plane and collect it from a delivery point.

Naturally, the 787 was not initially designed to be a competitor to the 777. It would be crazy for Boeing to design a new plane that would compete with its own aircraft, but we can look at the comparison from an airline point of view to see which is best and most cost effective. Follow the link to see a table of the aircraft, ranked by how many passengers they carry configured in two classes.

Boeing’s big gamble on the world’s first twin-aisle commercial aircraft not only went on to pay off handsomely, it led to a revolution in the way the whole world traveled and shipped air freight. Without the 747, there would likely have been no extended range Boeing 767s, 777s, and 787s; no Airbus A330s, 340s, or 380s.
It’s only February, but Boeing Co. executives are already closing in on one of their most important decisions of the year: whether to plow an estimated $15 billion into a new jetliner family. The aircraft nicknamed the 797 would feature Boeing’s first all-new design since the 787 Dreamliner’s unveiling in 2004, while shoring up its product line against recent Airbus advances.
