There are also more interior designer touches in the Internationals that increases their price.
We hate the sliding doors in our LE EB and really prefer the ease of storage access and quantity afforded by the FC overhead bins; we miss the bins dearly. The back / diffused lighting is great for show, but decreases to nil when we put our comforter into the upper storage in the FB.
The roller shades are a nice touch, but wait until they malfunction and/ or need to be replaced. We like to store our EB with the shades down to prevent any sun fading, but are already noticing a decrease in roller tension.
I don't mean to rain, but merely express our observtions, too.
