One of the megado exclusives was the Boeing Customer Experience Center. Now, this is not a place where the average person can just go and check-out the options available for the aircraft, especially since some of these options will never see passenger use because they take too much space. This is a place where airline executives come to see potential configurations for their aircraft order. We were able to tour the mock-ups of the 747-8, 737, and 787.

Also included on the upper deck is a mock-up that either encouraged or was in response to the new Lufthansa First Class Suites.

I’m not going to post much here because everyone is extremely familiar with this aircraft.
What is really interesting with these seats are the controls in first class.
Unfortunately, this is only a part of the collection, as the main 787 demo is in another part of Seattle.
Wouldn’t you love to have a bar like this for those times when the upgrade out of Y doesn’t clear 😉
And to give you an idea of the space in the cabin, when it is not packed with way too many seats
And you hear about all of the bin space that is on the plane. They actually went and designed a bag mock-up with the worst bag that still meets all airline carry-on guidelines to ensure that the bags fit properly in the bins.
