This is a flight review of our Thomson Airways Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner flight to Puerto Plata (Gregorio Luperón International Airport) in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. We flew in economy class called "Dreamliner Class" on the Dreamliner. All footage of the journey is filmed from the economy class cabin. Our flight crew was mainly British with a Scandinavian stewardess on board too. Our Thomson Airways Dreamliner (Boeing 787-8) had registration number G-TUIA and was named "Living the Dream". Our flight started at Copenhagen Airport in Denmark and the aircraft passengers where mainly Scandinavians (Swedish and Danish nationality). Our charter holiday trips where booked via Star Tour (name for TUI in Denmark) (Fritidsresor as TUI are called in Swedish) which is the same as TUI travel in the UK and Germany. I believe TUI is called ARKE in the Netherlands, is that correct?

Our Dreamliner flight review begins at Copenhagen Airport in Denmark. The viewer can follow our arrival at the airport (Terminal 3) before we walk down to Terminal 2 where out Thomson Airways check-in desk is located. We then check-in at the self check-in counters and the drop our luggage at the Thomson Airways Baggage Drop Off area. We then make our way up to the departures area via the tax free shopping area. Once through the tax free shopping area we walk over to the windows where there is a little snow storm outside, the first aircraft we see is the Qatar Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner being towed away. We walk around the airport for awhile before we again pass another passport control (2 x passport control because we are leaving the European Union). We then arrive at our departure gate area (our gate was C29) where we get our first glimpse of our Thomson Airways Dreamliner passenger aircraft which is rather covered in snow. It is here at the gate that we are told that the flight is delayed as there is a problem with the aircraft's water supply system which means that there is no water for the lavatories or tea and coffee. We eventually board the plane just over 1 hour delayed. As we pushback and start taxiing we get some nice views of the Thai Airways and Singapore Airlines Boeing 777 aircraft also standing at the C area gates, We also get some nice views of the terminal building construction project (I believe that the terminal is being upgraded to be able to handle the giant Airbus A380 aircraft, which currently do not fly to Copenhagen Airport. The aircraft then makes it´s way for de-icing where the viewer gets a cabin view at the deicing process of a Dreamliner Boeing 787 aircraft. After de-icing we taxi over to our runway for take off (Runway 04R), from this point our journey begins. Watch out for economy class cabin views where you can see the 3-3-3 seat arrangements, view the in flight entertainment system (IES) a touchscreen used mainly for movies, TV shows and the route and speed of the aircraft (also the reading light and stewardess calling button are found on the touch screen). We also visit the galley and lavatory. Inflight meals which we have prepaid also feature in the footage. We had one main meal and then one complimentary snack box just before landing.Also watch out for the famous Dreamliner mood lights, the fancy new self dimming windows the huge General Electric e
ith their characteristic noise reducing chevrons (or saw teeth) and much more. We really hope that you enjoy the footage of our first flight on the Thomson Airways Dreamliner to Puerto Plata (Gregorio Luperón International Airport) in the Dominican Republic.
