Boeing has published a series of teaser images of cabin innovations on its forthcoming next-generation B777 aircraft.
The manufacturer has taken to Twitter to post three images over the last few days. One shows a mock-up of the economy cabin (above), along with the message “Just like the 787 #Dreamliner, the #777X passenger experience will leave you feeling refreshed with better cabin altitude and humidity, temperature, sound quality and lighting”.
A second depicts a short gif of windows being dimmed in what looks like business class, along with the post “Take it all in! Windows on the #777X are larger and higher than the competition, giving everyone a view and more light no matter where you sit”.
And a third shows an overhead bin with the message “Lose that luggage anxiety! Overhead bins on the #777X are larger, providing more room for your carry-on. Plus they are easier to access!”
Users can also access an automated Facebook Messenger app via messenger.com/t/Boeing, which provides links to further information, images and videos about the B777-X, and a dedicated microsite is also available at boeing.com/777x/reveal/.
In 2017 launch customer Lufthansa published renderings of the business class seat which will feature on its B777-9 aircraft, which it says will offer more privacy, “a special shoulder zone for side sleepers”, as well as larger monitors, and aisle access for all passengers.
Lufthansa has 20 of the next-generation Boeing aircraft scheduled for delivery between 2020 and 2025.
As previously reported by Business Traveller, Boeing’s recommended seating plans for the B777-9 call for operators to adopt a ten-across 3-4-3 layout in economy.
