Qantas to replace overhead bins on Boeing 737-800 BSI with new design to fit larger bags, and more bags

Übermittelt
 
Qantas will trial a new overhead bin system in its Boeing 737-800NG aircraft designed to fit not only larger carry-on bags, but more of them. The retrofit cabin interior, codenamed Project Amber and developed by aircraft interiors firm Heath Tecna, will be installed by Qantas in the fourth quarter of 2012 and promises to boost overhead stowage capacity by 30-40%.

I'm not sure how more seat space can be created out of overhead space - I'm not aware that there's any such trade off. Does anyone think there's scope for a mezzanine?

More seat space would be better. Who wants to make more baggage space, instead of seat space ?? The airline does .. why ? Cos more seat space means less income. I struggle now with getting my bags outa the overhead, and I prob still will. Any way ... Cheers.

You Can Bearley fit A Normal Backpack in a bin. Great now you can probably put your laptop in the bag and it will just fit. Just What We Need!

Good one Philip .. ha ha . Yeah I reckon if they did create a mezzanine, how would they get my usual red wine up to me, amd my second helping of sweets ? You are so right though about carry on being weighed. There would have to be a limit to carry on baggage if more was allowed. Ken.

Just what we need, more and larger bags inside the cabin

Whose dumb idea was that? How about more bum space instead of baggage space. Speaking of bums, someone should actually get of theirs and start enforcing the rules about size and quantity of the baggage allowances.

So spot on Donald. The flamin' seat space is bad. I never traveled in a sheep truck atound this district, but I know how they feel after my trips over seas !! Money speaks loud .. their wants to give more baggage space, but no more room space. Cheers.

You only have to experience what it is like in the US with sizes of bags being brought onboard, I like a bit of comfort when flying without having to put up people taking over my allocated bin for their oversize bags when I do the right thing and check my baggage.

Cannot believe that this is being contemplated. Baggage handlers out there look for new jobs.
