Breathe Easier: Boeing Maps Cabin-Comfort Boost for 777X

Boeing Co. sees a way to set its new 777X jetliner apart for airlines normally fixated on costs: by making travel easier on a passenger’s nose and throat.

Creature comforts such as higher humidity and cabin air pressure to ease jet lag on long flights are part of the planemaker’s redesign of its flagship 777 for the 2020s and beyond, said Jim Haas, director for product marketing for Boeing’s commercial airplane unit.
