Hmmm, that flight deck looks surprisingly similar to my Metro I'm flying.... shouldn't be hard at all to transition (especially to the paycheck!)

It looks just like our 145XRs!!!

Except for the gay seats, the overhead panel, the HUD's, the electronic chart bags, the center pedestal, the VMO on the airspeed PFD. Did I miss something?

Huh?
When is Boeing going to get rid of the cumbersom, bulky, and space limiting controll column? They need to get with the program and make these long range aircraft more comfortable for the flight deck crew. I know it would be hard to do, but they should swallow their pride and admit that Airbus has the right idea with the side stick.

New Technology ???

Pretty much looks like the EASY cockpit I fly and with the Dassault 7X coming along with fly by wire and a side stick maybe a little outdated (-_-).

No need to hide it, just watch it on the MFD if you are interested.

The roomy cockpit and quiet environment that doesn't require headclamps or noise cancelling headsets to keep from going deaf.

Oh yeah, the Business First crewmeals.

I don't see any panels to hide the porn behind.

I will never forget the trip, where my CPT and FO started talking about that....and pulled the mag compass correction card out to reveal...BOOBS. I started looking everywhere on my FE panel - flipping the old ashtray down, etc...there was porn. A lot had been taken off and there were the initials NPFGP. Any clue? I was assuming it was No Porn For God's People or something.
Anyway..when I first saw your post I immediately thought you have flown on a 72. Or do ALL the old Boeings have the treasure chest of porn?

What kind of ground or flight condition are they attempting to recreate with that first picture? "This is what the view out the cockpit windows will look like moments before impact."
It appears to me that this view would be common when turning onto the runway for takeoff (except for the fact that the seats are empty).

WOW! Looks like EVERYONE has SJS.

The 787..... it is supposed to alter the airline routes??

How is it going to effect the Air Line Pilots pay and work rules?

Who cares about bells and whistles.....

I need a Career!!
