"and higher humidity than previous planes."

Apparently, you can thank the carbon fibre body for the higher humidity. And the higher ambient pressure too. Both are results of not using aluminium. Carbon fibre is stronger so supports the higher pressure and not susceptible to corrosion from the humid air so no need to dehumidify to such uncomfortable levels.
