Boeing 737-800 retrofitting

I came across this pic of a 738: the plane has mood lights.
Has LY started to retrofit their 738s?

Thanks

Anyone have any additional info on the 737-800 retrofit? I did find two pictures of what appear to be new seats, but no further info. Bottom of this review: https://flight-report.com/fr/report/...h-tel-aviv-tlv

I flew in one yesterday in C. When I walked in I was a bit confused since I have never seen this confit before.

overall comfortable, has USB power, and overall it was nice.

didnt get a chance to see the Y cabin, however the partition between C and Y was a bulkhead and not a curtain in the current 738

Do you happen to have any pics to share, or know the reg of the aircraft you flew on? If not the reg, the flight number would be great, too. Big improvement for LY!

I flew in Y yesterday in this new config. Was sitting in row 21.

The bulkhead is very strange. It basically leans back, so that the last row of C can recline. But at take off and landing they "straighten" it manually.

Overall the cabin has a new feel. The new USB is a good addition, and besides row 21 they added a place to put your cell phone to watch movies
