Boeing shows off 737 with Sky interior

Boeing showed off its Air Berlin 737 at the Le Bourget airport to the media over the noon hour today. It’s outfitted with what it calls its Sky Interior.

Inside, overhead lighting can change from the cool blue of the sky to the warm orange of a sunrise. Overhead bins are configured to hold more baggage. But flight attendants don’t have to struggle with their weight to close them when they’re full.

Attention has been given to small details. For example, buttons over the seats have been reconfigured so passengers don’t confuse the overhead light with the call button for a flight attendant. That’s something that happens on a frequent basis, Boeing officials said during the tour.
