I do but this info is considered highly proprietary by Boeing and they don't like them being released in public months before they're due so if you don't mind I'd rather keep that info 'off radar' for now. I will say that the FlyDubai should be popping out on the flight line at RNT very soon as it's ln 3356. First flight is planned for mid August and under normal circumstances I would expect it to deliver at the end of August, but like I said in my opening post, it's planned to be doing testing under an experimental N-reg so it could be weeks/months before it finally hands over to FlyDubai.

From the ln's quoted and the current monthly production rates, you should see them on the ramp at RNT/BFI in December.

Malaysia Airlines' 9M-MXA is expected to be delivered in October 2010 (that's 3 months away!). MH will received the second B738 (9M-MXB) with the new Boeing Sky interior in December 2010. 33 more B738s will be delivered to MH from 2012 until 2014.

Quoting RobK (Reply 2): oykie, no dates finalised yet. The FlyDubai will be doing a bunch of testing under a fixed N-reg for some time before delivery.
Thank's for the answer. It seems like the interior will be delivered on time according to the dates set by Boeing. Are these planes fully fitted with the areodynamic tweaks and CFM56-7B Evolution engine? They are supposed to give a combined 2% better performance over the excisting 737NG.

Quoting ETFokker50 (Reply 15): How is the Boeing Sky interior from the "Signature" interior?
And so Boeing now has 3 interiors? "Classic", "Signature" and "Sky"?
Very much all new. Overhead bins are pivot-style, like on the 777. Lighting goes LED, and much of it a cool blue (you know, the kind that scientific research has shown prevents you from sleeping? Yeah, THAT color). All new PSU's, which look very sharp in photos. If you're interested, you might consider going to... wait for it... BOEING'S website and looking at the photos for yourself.
No, Boeing does not have three interiors. Currently, only one is in production, and that's the signature. Classic hasn't been produced for years. Why count it? They had hat racks in the 60's, I'm not about to count that either...
Quoting embajador3 (Reply 16): I wonder if Ryanair will also adopt this new interior on its new 738s.
I highly doubt it. Considering that the Sky Interior is a deletable option for those airlines who are already existing customers, I fully expect that the FR's and WN's of the world will minimize cost and stick with what they've got.
Do you really expect Ryanair to charge for lavatories on one hand, yet allow nicer cabins on the other? Lol, I wish.
