Boeing (NYSE: BA) said it has announced the launch of its new Space Bins, which provide more room for carry-on bags.
Space Bins are now available as an optional feature on new Next-Generation 737s and 737 MAX airplanes.
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. That´s based on a standard size carry-on bag measuring 9-in x 14-in x 22-in (23 cm x 36 cm x 56 cm).
Launch customer and hometown partner Alaska Airlines will begin installing Space Bins on all new deliveries as soon as the larger bins become available in late 2015.
Boeing´s Space Bins will also be available for retrofit on in-service Next-Generation 737s.
