Come on get happy

It seems like only yesterday I was talking about our very first 737 with the new Boeing Sky Interior (BSI). Only two years later, we’re celebrating the delivery of the 500th 737 with this amazing interior. The airplane was delivered today to Aviation Capital Group, and Copa Airlines will lease and operate it.

I’ve flown on Sky Interior airplanes countless times in the past couple of years. But I always enjoy seeing the reaction of other passengers when they get on board a Sky Interior airplane for the first time. The large pivoting overhead bins and the cabin lighting really make for a “wow” factor moment.

While the interior gives our airline customers an edge over the competition, it’s the opinions of passengers that speak volumes. Two Boeing Sky Interior operators recently conducted passenger surveys. Norwegian Air Shuttle found that more than 60 percent of its customers rate the Boeing Sky Interior more comfortable than the standard interior. And they just felt “happier.” Transavia, a Netherlands-based airline, also said passengers enjoyed a significant improvement in the overall cabin experience.

To celebrate the 500th milestone, employees who build the Sky Interior at Boeing’s Interiors Responsibility Center in Everett held “Oktoberfest” luncheons. Managers served a traditional Oktoberfest meal and employees were also given commemorative “500th BSI” stickers.

Cheers to another milestone!

Congratulations to everyone at Boeing who had a hand in bringing this product to our customers and their passengers. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite videos (below) that shows exactly why I love the Boeing Sky Interior so much.

Hello Boeing staff.

Just flew on a Virgin Australia 737-800, registration no. VH-YFJ, and loved the sky interior.

Hoping to visit the Boeing Plant between the 15th and 19th March 2013, during our trip to the USA and Seattle to visit family and friends.

Best regards, Brian and Mary Simpson and family.

Mariano (U.S.):

Good job 737 team!!! Keep up the good work!!!

Mostafa M (Rancho Cucamonga, California (USA):

I want to congratulate all the employees of Boeing who always do a superb job of reducing waste, keeping the environment healthy and clean, designing and building more fuel efficient airplanes with fewer engine parts and easier accessibility for mechanics, continuing on more creative innovative ways to reduce carbon emissions, and cost effective ways to build airplanes with stronger materials. Always love Boeing!

Bryar Smith (GB, MI, USA):

Wow this interior looks stunning! I love Boeing and Boeing planes and this is just another reason in many. I cant wait to fly again and see the new Boeing Sky Interior!

Ronald Lee Cuie II (Seattle,WA 98133):

The very newest 737 I have flown on a few years ago was a 737-900ER via Continental Airlines. It was just delivered where it had the new jetplane smell. At the time it was to be removed from service for the installation of 12inch monitors. And the interior was very nice. So it will be a sight to see the sky interior for me...

keesje (Netherlands):

It's a nice interior upgrade indeed. Looks better and gives more stowing space at the same time. Why didn't Boeing do it, say 10 or 40 yrs ago ;)

macsaigy (Budapest, Hungary):

With this interior design Boeing determined what means "Boeing-feeling" on the board.
Congratulation!

Norman (Long Beach, CA):

Among many other things, the Boeing Sky Interior is a great reason for airlines to buy the 737 and for passengers to fly the 737. Perhaps when the 737 MAX is put into service the Sky Interior could be advanced to all new levels. A nice thing about the new interior, this could be updated on any existing 737 providing the benefits of the new interior to planes already in service.

Parker (Wadsworth,Ohio) (Wadsworth,Ohio,United States of America):

The Boein 737 MAX is a new step in aviation history and leaves a smaller carbon footprint. Boeing should make a 747-400 and 747-8 max.

tom (wellington):

the 737-800er is awesome,i cant wait for the 737 max comes out

Andrew Boydston (Boise, ID):

I've been out for awhile, but never far from Boeing's program news. Even though much is going on (i.e. progress on the 787(10) and The(777-X) as such,the new kids on the block,the 737 has managed to stay more than relevant with its sky interior and will leap frog the market, in its pursuit of excellence, the Max. Your camera shot, you've provided in the Journal, showing the main isle from 1st class to economy is elegant. This is a teaser for the Max, where more possibilities await the traveler and the Airlines.
