The next-generation Boeing 737 with the new 737 Boeing Sky interior will sense a soft blue sky overhead, created with colored LED ceiling lighting designed to enhance the sense of spaciousness.

The Boeing Co. selected B/E Aerospace as manufacturer of cabin lighting for the next-generation Boeing 737 aircraft program. This supplier furnished equipment (SFE) system will become standard equipment on all next-generation Boeing 737 aircraft and is part of B/E Aerospace’s $2.3 billion unbooked SFE backlog. Program deliveries are expected to commence in late 2010, with volume deliveries commencing in 2011. B/E Aerospace’s digital LED lighting system features adjustable lighting with full-spectrum color capabilities, providing superior cabin ambiance and unprecedented lighting control.
