We Must Be 'Dreaming': New 787 Boasts Rainbow Ceiling

dreamliner rainbow ceiling Move over, Virgin. You're not the only ones with in-flight mood lighting. The new 787 Dreamliner is taking ambient lighting to a new level, offering up a literal rainbow of color on the ceiling.

The inaugural 787 flight took off on Tuesday from Seattle to Tokyo after a day-long delay due to a faulty cooling valve.

Want to take a ride on the Dreamliner? You'll probably have to tackle a long-haul route, but United will show off their shiny new plane on a flight from Houston to Chicago on Nov. 4, and alternate routes between Houston, Chicago and Newark over the next few months, USA Today reports.

A special thanks to Mary Jo Manzanares (Traveilng with MJ) for the tip.
