Kulula.com recently received its sixth Next-Generation Boeing 737-800. The aircraft, with 189 economy class seats, features the Boeing Sky Interior which includes sculpted sidewalls and larger overhead stowage bins and windows.
To improve the on-board experience, the reading-light switches have been redesigned to allow customers to find them easily without pressing the flight-attendant call button. The speakers, which are integrated into each row's passenger-service unit improve the sound and clarity of onboard announcements.
The Next-Generation is the first commercial jet airplane certified for Ground Positioning System landings, which uses satellite technology to make landings more efficient and accurate. The aircraft is fitted with a new set of Split Scimitar Winglets which reduces fuel consumption by 1.4% per aircraft, resulting in an average cost saving of $100,000 per aircraft per year.
