Background: SYNOPSIS: The interior of the new 767 airliner has been completed at the Boeing plant, Renton, Washington, in full-scale mockup form. One hundred, eleven feet (33.8 m) long, it is entered through a 747-type double-width door leading into the first-class area.
The medium-range 767 has a twin-aisle interior such as that introduced in the 747, and the airliner will bring wide-body spaciousness to many routes which do not have such service at present.
Tourist-class seats are wider than those in today's standard-body airliners. The overhead bins have greater capacity and length, so more carry-on baggage can be accommodated.
The special upholstery with diagonal stripes... the sculptured ceiling...and the soft indirect lighting combine to add to the feeling of spaciousness of the sixteen and a half foot (5 m) wide cabin.
The galley across the aft end of the cabin is like that in the 747SP (Special Performance) airliner. This is only a preview of the real thing, of course. The first 767 is scheduled to go into service with United Airlines in mid-1982, the first entirely new Boeing airliner since 1966.
