Boeing has announced the launch of its new Space Bins cabin storage, which provide more room for carry-on bags. These are now offered as an option on new Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX aircraft.
Each of the larger Space Bins will stow six bags, two more than the current pivot bins installed on Next-Generation 737s with the Boeing Sky Interior. This is based on a standard size carry-on bag measuring 9x14x22 inches (23x36x56 cms) that is also the security standard too.
With a lower bin lip height, Space Bins provide increased visibility into the back of the bins and make bag loading easier. They are also less difficult to close than current pivot bins, and require no bin assist mechanism.
Launch customer is Alaska Airlines who will begin installing Space Bins on all new deliveries as soon as they become available in late 2015.
Boeing’s Space Bins will also be available for retrofit on in-service Next-Generation 737s. www.boeing.com/commercial
