Isn't the sky interior based off the 777 interior?

The 777 pretty much already has it. Minus that ghastly blue, which I can only consider to be a good thing.

Some airlines have mood lighting on their 777s, so it should be too hard for others to put it in if they really want to.

787 I thought, which is dervied from the 777 interior (again I think).



I don't care what you think of my opinion. It's my opinion, so have a nice day :)

The "Sky" Interior is just a modification of the "Signature" interior anyway. The biggest difference is the lighting and the contours of the ceiling aren't smooth and continuous (there's the ceiling layer and then the overhead bin layer instead of one long continuous wave-like curve). I'm sure Boeing could find a way to shoehorn a 787 or 748-like interior in.

I would say the biggest difference is the pivot bins...on a 737, that's a big deal.

Compared to the Signature Interior? Cuz the Signature Interior uses the pivot bins (well, the 737's "Signature-inspired" interior doesn't use the pivots, but that's not the point here I think).

I believe that LED lighting is already approved for the 777 Signature interior, and the 777 windows are already much larger than the old 737 windows, so other than a few differences in the way the ceiling is "trayed", the Sky Interior is the 777 Signature interior for the 737NG...

I'm inclined to agree with the majority of the responses. The new 787-style interior simply isn't significantly different enough from the 777 interior to warrant such a change. The big difference with the 787 is the cute colored lights. Those can be installed into a 777 already. A 777 interior makeover wouldn't result in much tangible benefit (weight savings, bigger bins, etc.) so there's not much point to it at this time.

However, if Boeing ever does a 777NG, they'll probably "cuteify" the interior.

It's better than the purple lighting on Virgin America. Was not a fan of that when I flew them...

I find it a bit chintzy, but honestly, I could care less. After six hours, I just want off the F-ing plane. Doesn't matter how many bells and whistles are on it. A gilded cage is still a cage.

Hehehe... I usually feel the same way... and that's just on a routine 6 hour flight from MIA to EWR!  vomit

I don't think the 777 needs an interior change. It already has an innovative and fantastic interior.

And as evidence, just go inside a CO 767 with the signature interior and then go into an older 767 to compare. The CO 767 feels like such a modern, airy plane inside it makes you wish, from a pax perspective, there were more airlines flying it. The 777 signature interior concept makes any aircraft feel bigger, so I'm sure the 787 take on it is going to make that plane feel like a 777 inside, just as the 748 will feel roomier and the 737 will feel less claustrophobic even if there really isn't any additional pax space in either plane.

It definitely makes an aircraft feel more modern, but it didn't make the 777 feel any bigger to me (rather, it somehow felt rather cramped to me, but I don't know if that has to do with me being used to 747s or me associating the interior with the 767 since I had flown in one of DL's 764ERs before I had flown on a 777).

But to me, as someone who always travels in Y, the overhead makes very little difference. In fact, I prefer the 747 interior because you have the air vents on some carriers.

Delta has gasper vents on all of their 777s (including the 772LRs), as well as on the 764ERs.
