OK, from the picture it looks like it is getting fit with the "Signature Interior" from Boeing. Originally came out for its 777 fleet, it has been fitted, as a standard, to the 744ER (for QF), last 4 744PAX (for CI), and the 764 (for DL/CO, although DL's 764 does not have IFE). Expect higher ceiling, better lighting and generally a roomier feeling.
Also I believe MAXjet was the all-business class aircraft? No sense installing all-business class seat except on high-yield market like NYC-LON.
JPS on A300-600RF A319/320 B737-400/800 B757-200F B767-300F CRJ-200/900. Looking to add more.

Quoting Tod (Reply 3): A, HA, UA and Silverjet are getting 763 reconfigured with the Heath Tecna Nu-Look interior which is similar to the Boeing "Signature Interior" and just as nice (maybe a little nicer).
The 767-200's that Silverjet are getting from Thomsonfly are already installed with the Nu-look interior.

The First Choice interior is NOT the same as the Boeing Signature Interior as found on Delta/Continental 767-400ERs. The outer bins are the shelf type, not the pivot type. The First Choice interiors are a modified form of the original 767 interior, but with more curves, giving the cabin a more modern appearance:

9 of the 58 767-300's at American are configured with the new interiors, those are the nine ordered from Boeing in the early 2000's to replace the 9 former TWA 763's. It doesn't look like the remaining 49 300's will be refurbished with the new style interiors.
Correct me if I'm wrong, I think if the registration ends with AN instead of AA then you are likely to be in a new style interior 767.
I'm wondering if any of the 200's still in service do have those interiors, the majority don't but maybe the ones at Continental do because those were built not too long ago. I know American's 767-200's won't receive the new style interiors, they date from the 80's.
Anyone flew on a Continental 767-200?
While I have never flown on one, Continental's 767-200s do have the Boeing Signature Interior.
What other airlines using the 767-200 have them with the Signature Interior?
BTW, Delta has been refurbishing the interiors of their 767-300s. Aside from the new signage and leather seat covers, the aircraft also have fluorescent lavatory/No Smoking/Fasten Seat Belt signs. The lavatory signs are now symbol-based rather than text-based. However, the overhead bins are the same as they always were. It would be nice if Delta would add the retrofit that First Choice has, or the Heath Tecna 767 NuLook package. Around 2000, Delta has updated the bins on their MD-88s and 757s.

AA is going to refit the front half of their 763s with the new look interior. Basically the entire business class, and the small front economy section will have the new look interior, while economy from the overwing exits back will have the old interior. It's a shame they can't do the entire aircraft, but at least the appearance in business class will be improved.

Quoting SNATH (Reply 18): Do you know which airlines have gone for it?
ABX Air is the launch customer for this STC. Their ex-DL 762's are being converted by the Bedek Group in Tel Aviv, that's where the mod is being installed. The software and systems are also upgraded - it's a 737NG type avionics package. Truly amazing to see it in action.

Which company is AA getting its new 763 interiors for their new business class sections from? Boeing, or heathtechna?
I just went to the heathtechna website and saw that they're offering both 'swingdown' 777 type bins and 'new door' type bins for the 767 depending on how much cash you wanna spend and how much time u want the aircraft out of service. Any news on which type UAL etc are going for? I hope its the swingdown type ones because they look so much better and increase the capacity significantly.
