Good bye Kindergarten class, hello high class!! I must say it does look very nice and inviting, it almost doesn't feel like a 737 inside.

Very nice indeed. The seat pitch in both EY & JCL left a lot to be desired though

Will all new build 737s be getting this interior, or is it an option? Curious if UA/CO will opt for it...

This interior deserves a one word description. Boring.


It's 737s, 747s and 380s. Not 737's, 747's and 380's. Learn to use the apostrophe for crying out loud.

My understanding is that current 737 customers can opt for the new interior or stick with the old one, while all new customers must take the new design. I am almost certain that I read that Continental (now United) opted to take the new sky interior on future new planes and that they should be taking delivery of their first one soon.

All future UA 737 deliveries (ordered by CO) will come with the Sky Interior.

Huge improvement IMHO over the old "60s-70s" style interior that have been in the 737/A320 aircraft.

MH does not operate the A320s (MH has always been a keen supporter of Boeing for their narrowbody aircrafts since ages - from B731 to B732 to B734 and now the B738).

Interesting to read that the interior received positive responses from A.Net, much to the contrary when the new livery was first unveiled in mid October.

Personally, I am glad that we are going to bid farewell to the annoying multi coloured 'Smarties/M&Ms' interior soon.

I thought the same exact thing. Really?

The reading lights aren't even LED. Pretty cheap by Boeing and this "enhancement" is only a option to boot!

In terms of overhead luggage space is it reduced with the push up bins? Looking at one of the pictures, it looks like the depth is reduced?

Why does everything on A.Net have to be negative?
It is an option for current customers so they can keep fleet continuity.
SWA has 500 737's now they should get 100 more with a different interior? (This is an example).
New 737 customers will get only this option.
The reading lights are LED's. All interior lights and signage is LED.

No you don't loose depth. The hold larger bags and actually more bags.

Um back up the horses-- "Everything on Anet. has to be negative?" Generalize and bitter much...

It was an observation and you're wrong according to the Malaysian airlines photo of the GSU with a non-LED light. Either way, if what you're said is true..it's not adding up in either a stock Boeing photo or a delivery a/c photo. Any rational person would come to that conclusion.

Southwest is a terrible example, apparently Continental/United and American felt the need to compete against VX's cabin when it's a matter of changing the bulbs and adding different o/h bins with a more "modern" feel. American is specifically using those "special" 737's on the DFW-SFO flights and it's not a pure coincidence.

I was wondering if the person who thought this interior is boring has been inside it?
I think it's a pretty remarkable interior, very spacious and has bigger bins even though they look smaller.
Would they have any better ideas?

I think it looks nice and look forward to flying on the 738 on my next vacation to Malaysia. Although seating wise there is nothing exciting but then it is not primarily used for long haul flights.

TOP MARKS!

That looks incredibly stylish. I've flown Malaysia quite a bit over the years. While the service has always been first-class the aircraft interiors left a lot to be desired. Let's hope they don't limit this interior to a couple of planes.

Excellent! So, AA should be taking this interior? I was hoping so. Considering they have 100 odd 737s in their fleet with mismatched interiors (two configs), I thought they might not be keen to add another, however, I figured with another 70 odd 737s on the way, they might be willing to accept this new interior in the newer seat config and continue to standardize the existing fleet.

Well yes, true - on a relative scale compared to the old MH interior, this new one might be considered "boring" - however, call me crazy, I don't completely enjoy being shockingly visually stimulated by an aircraft interior while in-flight.

Especially early morning when I'm still groggy or long-haul when I'm trying to sleep.

This new interior is rather simple, but elegantly so, and I think that ultimately MH made an educated decision transitioning to this new style.

The next 737 CO/UA take delivery of will have the new Sky Interior, and all subsequent deliveries there after. A couple should be in service with CO/UA by the end of the year.

There are more than 1200 737s with the Sky Interior on order with 46 different customers. Going to be neat to see this interior everywhere. From a list price standpoint, will Boeing charge exisiting customers more to stay with their exisitng interiors instead of opting for the sky interior?
