Airplane interiors are boring. Why is there never any innovation? Well, BMW has changed that. The new Airbus A350 twinjet is being unveiled at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, and it has a BMW designed interior. Among the dozens of innovations, the roof lighting can dramatically change and the storage now enables two carry on bags per passenger.

“There are new lighting features and shaping in the cabin,” says A350 chief engineer Dougie Hunter. “We can project onto the ceiling whatever is appropriate for the mood required – for example the night sky or clouds etc.”
