July 08, 2012 – Farnborough , UK (Techreleased) –A Korean Air Next-Generation 737-900ER (Extended Range), featuring Boeing’s innovative Sky Interior, was the second Boeing [NYSE: BA] airplane to arrive at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow.
“We are proud to partner with industry-leading Korean Air to show off their 737-900ER here at the 2012 Farnborough International Airshow,” said Beverly Wyse, vice present and general manager of the 737 program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Boeing takes great pride in knowing Korean Air is using the Sky Interior to deliver a more comfortable travel experience for its customers.”
“The 737 Boeing Sky Interior is helping airlines like Korean Air to differentiate themselves from their competitors,” Wyse said. “Passengers instantly see and feel the difference.” Those differences include sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting, larger stow bins and more intuitive placement of attendant call and light buttons.
