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.
