BMW Shows Airbus How to Light an Airplane Ceiling

Airbus has teamed up with BMW to create a tricked-out interior for its A350 jet that it will be showing at the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2006 in Hamburg next month. Suckers for way-cool lighting, what really caught our eye was the ceiling treatment. Take a look at how it simulates the clouds in the sky on a moonlit night. BMW has also put together some fine-looking seats and a generally swank interior for this A350, even in steerage.

Don’t hold your breath for this to appear on US airlines, which will probably be coming out with a bare lightbulb and straw on the floor for its updated aircraft interior design.


Thanks, D.

That's airbus's attempt to make you feel real cozy when the pilot kicks the rudder pedal too hard and the composite tail breaks off just like the one in New York a few years ago. Like the old saying goes-If it a'int Boeing I a'int going!
