Malaysia Airlines has taken delivery of its 75th Boeing 737.

The airplane, a 737-800, is scheduled to arrive in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Wednesday.

The aircraft comes with the 787 Dreamliner-inspired Boeing Sky Interior, which features larger pivoting overhead stowage bins, larger window reveals and LED lighting to enhance the sense of spaciousness.

Malaysia Airlines was the Asia launch customer for the Boeing Sky Interior in October 2010.

The 737 has been an amazing airplane for our airline, said Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, chief executive officer of Malaysia Airlines. When we took off on our own as Malaysias national airline on 1 October 1972, our inaugural jet flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore was operated using the 737. Since then this aircraft has been a very reliable workhorse for both our domestic and regional operations. We continue to be impressed by the 737s consistent reliability, unmatched economics and innovation in passenger comfort.

Malaysia Airlines took delivery of its first 737 in 1972 and has operated the 737-200, 737-300, 737-400, 737-500 and 737-800.
