The Intelligent Aerospace take:

February 16, 2021 - Airbus' A320 Airspace interior renovation started in 2017 and features customizable LED lighting throughout the cabin and the lavatories boast anti-microbial coatings, with large overhead bins that replicate the look and feel of the larger A330new and A350.

"The initial in-flight testing subjected the cabin to conditions well beyond what it would normally be subjected to in a standard flight profile," Airbus said in a press release. "Special cameras and sensors throughout the interior were connected to dedicated flight-test and recording equipment in the cabin so that the engineers could analyze the performance and characteristics of the cabin elements in real-time on board, as well as in the lab afterwards. . . Now this second flight-testing stage, together with the lessons-learnt from previous developments, will further help to ensure a robust product at entry into service in the coming months."
