Fair use: "FlyDubai will be the launch customer for the Boeing 737 Sky Interior which features new LED lighting, larger 777/787 style pivot bins and a host of other changes."

Article also notes a few other launch airlines.

"CFM will introduce the CFM56-7B Evolution engine in conjunction with a new interior to deliver a 1% improvement in overall aircraft efficiency. Boeing will also make minor tweaks to the aerodynamics of the aircraft to contribute to a 1% improvement as well. "

http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/fl...reaking-boeing-launches-737-s.html

So the interior doesn't offer fuel improvements, but the improved 737's that will come with the new interior will have mods resulting in fuel improvement.

Is this a total of 1% improvement from the engines, interior and aerodynamics combined, or 2%, with a full 1% coming from the aerodynamic changes alone?

2% total, 1% each from engines and aerodynamics.

I thought I read that this engine received CAA and FAA certification only very recently (this week?) but I thought they said 2%? improvement in fuel burn?

The press release says the airplane/engine will offer a 2% combined improvement in fuel comsumption.

Thanks for the above.Either way 2% is a huge bump in efficiency for such a mature plane.I personaly love the new interior.The combined package will no doubt keep customers very happy indeed.It all adds further questions as to whether a major re-engine is really needed/wanted by large scale existing operators with all the associated increases in opertaional costs.

The engine exceeded its performance targets, though last I read, CFM won't say exactly how much better than 1% they achieved.

Me too!

No it doesn't; there is NO QUESTION that airlines want something drastically more cost effective. The 737NG and current A320 just aren't gonna cut it for the longhaul, and 1-2% here and there isn't the ticket to continued sales success.

Whole line, as far as I know.
