The cabin is equipped with 2 rows of first class, 3 rows of business class, 4 rows of economy class, including advanced entertainment system and distinctive interior decorations of Chinese and Russian style, integrating comfort and advancement. It also reflects the concept design of CR929 aircraft's cockpit. The mock-up makes it possible to showcase to the potential customers and future passengers the advantages of comfortable cabin in the economy class in comparison with same class aircraft.
Flight crew and cabin crew will entirely enjoy the comfort of their working stations as well.

“Cooperation between Russia and China in the long-range wide-body aircraft program is an extraordinary example of collaboration in the international aircraft industry. Competitiveness at the highly-developed global market of commercial aviation, especially in the most recourse-intensive and complicated segment of wide-body aircraft, demands integration of efforts, resources and strengths of each partner. It is subject to economics, technologies, experience and human capital assets. Our companies, UAC and COMAC, lead the way in such strong cooperation within CR929 Program”, stated the President of UAC Mr. Y. Slyusar during the premiere demonstration of CR929 mock-up in Zhuhai.
