  • Boeing Sky Interior debuts with Continental

    2011-01-03

    Continental Airlines is the first carrier in North America to own the brand new Boeing Sky Interior 737-800 aircraft.

    The new jet features more environmentally-friendly LED lighting, more space in overhead bins thanks to the design that allows them to retract into the ceiling, a cleaner ventilation system, cabin-noise reduction and touch-screen flight attendant panels.

    "When customers first step on the plane, they will immediately notice the fresh cabin architecture," fleet vice president Ron Baur said in a statement. "This modern interior gives the airplane a more open look and feel while increasing cabin comfort and overhead storage space."

    Continental has yet to fly the Sky aircraft, as it is must be fitted with fuel-efficient winglets in the airline's Orlando, Florida, maintenance facility. The carrier is expecting a delivery of additional 737 jets in the next year.

    There are currently no details on when Continental will introduce the new aircraft into its line of service.

    Continental Airlines is a member of Star Alliance, which serves more than 180 countries with 21,000 flights every day. The carrier flies 63 million passengers on an annual basis.
