Re: Crowded Sky: Boeing finds more room overhead

I was aware that Boeing was working on this idea and it sounds like a real winner. A carry-on bag is almost a necessity for people who fly. Boeing deserves full credit and thanks from consumers for this innovation.

The Dreamliner has a lot of overhead space compared to the planes I'v flown, so this will even be better!

I favor standardizing, but think the seven inches depth is too skimpy. Nothing is more frustrating than having a bag that is okay as a carry-on with one airline, but to large with a connecting airline. Still, overall it looks like we're getting screwed again!

Good news for people traveling on Canada's two major airlines, Westjet and Air Canada. They will not adapt these new standards to their markets. The old baggage rules still apply. More on this story in the Vancouver Sun .

I hope this effort is a real and continuing one and that other companies follow. Carrying everything onto the plane, to my way of thinking, is like any trend where if enough people say it's a good idea, even when it's not, hoards fall right into step, like lemmings. If I was offered valet service for a nominal fee to have someone carry my suitcase for me and I wouldn't have to touch it from the time I arrived at the airport until the time I was leaving at my destination, I'd jump at the...

Crowded Sky: Boeing finds more room overhead

PHeymont ·
Or, in a way, less room overhead. By sacrificing two inches of headroom and making a few more tweaks, Boeing has created what it calls "Space Bins," overhead compartments for 737 that can take 6 carry-ons where 4 fit before. Alaska Airlines got the...
