Boeing and Lion Air have celebrated delivery of the carrier’s first 737-900ER to feature the new Boeing Sky Interior.
The Boeing Sky Interior features a number of enhancements. The sculpted sidewalls of the interior are designed to provide passengers with a feeling of spaciousness, while new window reveals make the windows seem larger. LED lighting can be programmed to provide soft blue sky overhead or to create different effects during the flight. Large stowage bins pivot down and out and intuitive placement of switches and improved sound quality are further features that enhance the passenger experience.
Lion Air was the launch customer for the Boeing 737-900ER in 2005. This delivery is the airline’s 43rd 737-900ER from a total order by the airline of 178 Next-Generation 737s.
