CBS News) The Boeing Stratoliner was an iconic aircraft that practically called out COME FLY WITH ME. So can this new Boeing 787, the Dreamliner, really bring back the good old days of air travel? Our Cover Story is reported now by Barry Petersen:

If you believe the old TV commercials, airline travel used to be amazingly pleasant ! Now we are searched and stressed, and left standing in endless lines.

But Boeing believes its new 787 Dreamliner will bring back some of the good old days.

“Really what we were trying to see if we could trigger again, recapture the magic that flying really is,” said Boeing’s Blake Emery, who helped design the interior – where even spaciousness comes with a message:

“We really wanted from the moment you crossed the threshold to be able to kind of say, ‘Ah, I made it, this is it, this is going to be good from here on out,'” Emery said. “A total psychological moment.”
