Boeing has delivered its 1,000th 737 Boeing Sky Interior aircraft with airline customer Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA.
The 737 Boeing Sky Interior features modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting that aims to enhance the sense of spaciousness and larger pivoting overhead stowage bins.
Norwegian Air Shuttle was one of the launch customers for the 737 Boeing Sky Interior. This is the airline's 48th Next-Generation 737-800 with the new interior, making it the largest airline operating with the 737 Boeing Sky Interior in Europe.
A passenger survey conducted by Norwegian Air Shuttle soon after the airline began service with the new look claimed to find that more than half of respondents rate the 737 Boeing Sky Interior more comfortable than the standard interior. And passengers reported they feel "happier" in the new interior.
Since the first 737 Boeing Sky Interior was delivered in October 2010, more than 60 customers have ordered the new interior. Approximately 85 percent of Boeing's backlog of more than 1,900 Next-Generation 737s will be delivered with the 737 Boeing Sky Interior and will be standard on Boeing's newest family of single-aisle airplanes, the 737 MAX.
