Boeing's 787 Dreamliner is already hard at work carrying passengers for a handful of international carriers, but Boeing's efforts to promote the newest jetliner in their stable continues full steam. The DreamTour, a round-the-world journey showcasing the design and function of the state-of-the-art airliner, built by Boeing in Washington and South Carolina, continues to draw crowds, and this week's stop at Washington National Airport was no exception. The next stop on the tour is Dallas./Ft. Worth International Airport, and Airline Examiner will be taking readers onboard for a tour of the features of this new aircraft, which, with a record-breaking order book, will become a mainstay of the world's air fleets as the century progresses.

Stay tuned for a firsthand account as we step onboard for the first time, try the seats, peer through the passenger windows and learn how the aircraft will fly from the all-electronic flight deck. Visit us after Friday's event for a slideshow with photos from a noted aviation photographer, and perhaps even a few interviews with executives from Boeing, American Airlines, or DFW Airport. We'll also be live tweeting from the event, so don't forget to follow us on Twitter or Facebook for the latest feeds.
