The Delta 737-900ER airplane also features the Boeing Sky Interior, which includes the B/E Aerospace advanced LED cabin interior lighting system.

This configuration contains numerous B/E Aerospace systems and products including our lavatory system which increases cabin floor space resulting in increased passenger placements while providing an improved look, feel, and comfort as well as more useable space inside the lavatory. Additionally, through the design of the lavatory interior and antimicrobial coatings on the interior surfaces, the lavatory is cleaner and more hygienic.
