The January schedule includes the following stops:

According to Boeing, the Dream Tour aeroplane, ZA003, is outfitted with the 787's special cabin features, including a welcoming entryway, dramatically larger dimmable windows, bigger bins and dynamic LED lighting. They say the aeroplane is configured with a luxurious business-class cabin, an overhead crew rest compartment and an economy class section.
