Seatbelt Sign On Boeing 787

Mon Nov 28, 2011 5:14 pm

I tried to do a search but didn't come up with much, looking at 787-8 cabin photos - where are the seatbelt/nosmoking signs? If you look at the PSU it looks like there are only the reading lights and air vents.

Here is an image showing them:

One change that Boeing made though is that the arrow on the Fasten Seat Belt sign is now green; it was red on previous aircraft.

Also, it looks like Boeing has eliminated the illuminated No Smoking sign. Most airlines will probably simply have symbols printed on somewhere.

I wonder though, will Boeing offer a "Please Turn off Electronic Devices" sign option on the 787?

Ahh, I looked at the ANA Cabin photos but I don't see one anywhere! I would have thought that a "Please Turn off Electronic Devices" would have been standard now, is there a similar sign on the 777?

Symbols cover all languages....hence makes more sense.

I haven't seen text-based No Smoking and Fasten Seat Belt signs in quite some time; I remember seeing them in the past on 727s and L-1011s.

I think some of BA's 737-400s have text signs

First time I saw an electronic devices sign was one of the text ones on board a US airways A330-300 MAN-PHL

I have always wondered what symbol can represent such sign. My idea would be the common power symbol, where it would either show a red X around it when it is time to turn off electronic devices (similar to the lavatory signs on many newer Boeing aircraft), or would change from green to red (similar to Airbus lavatory signs).

In a country with multi languages out here...Using 2-3 Texts [International/State/Local language] was common,this has subsequently been replaced by Symbols.

CO has the lavatory signs on their 737 Classics in both English and Spanish.

I think there is one for Airbus. I believe it is something resembling a mobile phone or a "device" with a X through it.
