What's this red light indicator inside the cabin, its flush with the sides of the plane. The exact location would be a couple of rows ahead of the overwing exit seats.

This picture was taken before take-off. Forgot to observe the light after take-off. This is not a flight-attendant call indicator.

    $\begingroup$ @MichaelKjörling No, there was no light on the opposite side of the cabin, It may have been off, that I cannot confirm. I did look on the other side to see if there was a red light there as well. $\endgroup$ – Firee Nov 27 '17 at 13:05

    $\begingroup$ This is not an answer (so not posting it as such), but I seem to recall a question/answer here at some point in the past that may be related. I apologize but could not find it again. I believe on some aircraft there are interior markings to indicate to the crew at a glance which window(s) are optimal for looking outside to have a good view of the front of the engines in case a rapid visual inspection is needed. Could this be some sort of indicator of such, since it appears to be right above a window in approximately the right place to look at the front of the B737 engines? $\endgroup$ – Milwrdfan Nov 28 '17 at 17:25

    $\begingroup$ @Milwrdfan I remember the question you're referring to. It referred to A320, which had some kind of sticker above windows. My first thought went towards that, but I couldn't see a corresponding light on the opposite side of the cabin. Waiting for someone with actual knowledge of a 737 cabin to answer it. $\endgroup$ – Firee Nov 28 '17 at 17:41

I found this pertaining to the new interior design of some Boeing737(s), I can only guess the coloring is from one of the mood lighting (Blue or red) has a defect in the connections.enter link description herehttps://www.airlines-inform.com/flight-reports/amarchukov-1754.html
