Video: inside Qantas' new Boeing Sky Interior

Qantas is getting ready to showcase a radical new-look cabin on its domestic fleet next month, when the airline's first Boeing 737NG (or 'Next Generation') fitted with Boeing's slick Sky Interior takes to the skies in late October.

The plane's cabin shares its design DNA with the streamlined interior of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and represents a major makeover for conventional aircraft interiors by embracing curves and colours to make the cabin lighter and brighter, as well as looking ‘softer’ and more spacious.

(Note that the photo above is of a Boeing mockup – the actual Qantas interior will sport the same Marc Newson business and economy seats as the Red Roo's latest 737-800s.)

On our visit last week to Boeing's 737 factory in Seattle we put together this short video to showcase the most noteworthy features of the Boeing Sky Interior cabin which you'll start on domestic Qantas flights from late next month.
