Boeing 747 8 Cabin
On entering the new Boeing 747 8 Intercontinental, passengers will immediately know they are on a new aircraft. The interior concept is very much in line with the modern styles of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airy swept up Boeing Sky architecture gives a feeling of space.
The use of LED lighting, aside from the functional weight advantages as well as longevity, offers the ability to have smooth light transitions offering a more calm and soothing environment. The feeling is of being outdoors, the lighting and the sense of space. The 747 8 Intercontinental takes the technology and designs that make the Boeing 787 Dreamliner the sought after aircraft of choice with passengers and runs with it.
The overhead luggage bins have been designed to be unobtrusive when closed to help add to the feel of space. At the same time they have been made much deeper so that the average wheelie bag can be loaded end-on into the bin. This has always been a point of stress with the travelling public, the race to get to their seat first so that they don’t miss out on getting space for their carry-on luggage.
On entry to the vestibule at door two which is the standard entry point for boarding a 747, travellers will notice more space and the sweeping staircase leading to the upstairs bubble. There is more space in this area than previous Boeing 747s to enable a better flow of em-planing and deplaning passengers.

To further add to the concept of space, the windows on the Boeing 747 8 are larger than the Boeing 747 400 and more in line with the Boeing 777 at 38.8 centimeters tall by 27.3 centimeters wide(15.3 inches tall by 10.76 inches wide).
