According to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, the network in the Dreamliner's passenger compartment is supposed to give passengers in-flight internet access. However, it is connected to the plane's control, navigation and communication systems.

The Dreamliner is in the final stages of production and when it is finished it will seat between 210 and 330 people.
