At the 2006 Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Airbus showed a mockup of an A350 interior designed by BMW Designworks. The stylish cabin has some interesting features which are designed to relax the passengers and save space. There is also a cool mood lighting feature which can project images like the night sky or clouds onto the ceiling.
“In the entrance area there is a dome that gives us the feeling of spaciousness and openness in the cabin and configured for whatever mood you want to generate,” said engineer Dougie Hunter.
Airbus has also improved the overhead bin design to increase their volume. “The number of bags that can be accommodated in the centre bin of the business area will be two standard roller bags per passenger,” says Hunter. “The economy bins can take one standard roller bag per passenger.”
