The Star reported that Malaysia Airlines is set to become the first full-service airline in the world to operate the B737-800 with the new Boeing Sky Interior.
To enhance passenger comfort, the interior design is similar to that installed in the B787 Dreamliner and features the use of mood lighting.
Other improvements include a higher ceiling, larger windows, leather seats, touch-screen inflight entertainment units, individual power supply, bigger stowage bins and USB ports for electronics.
The plane will make its inaugural flight on Monday to Kota Kinabalu, MAS’ new eastern hub, where it will be based, followed by a commercial flight to Haneda Airport in Tokyo, Japan.
MAS has ordered 54 more B737-800, in addition to 25 Airbus A330-300 and six A380 that will be delivered in stages to replace its older fleet.
