Boeing To Retrofit Space Bins On Alaska 737 Fleet

Boeing and Alaska Airlines have confirmed they will begin modifying in-service Boeing Sky Interior 737 aircraft with bigger overhead bins in the next year.

Boeing and Alaska Airlines have confirmed they will begin modifying in-service Boeing Sky Interior 737 aircraft with bigger overhead bins in the next year.

The Seattle-based carrier is the launch customer for the space bins retrofit programme which will see 34 of its aircraft – mostly the 737-900 variant – fitted with new overhead bins.

Alaska had its first 737 fitted with space bins in October 2015. The pivot bins stow six bags, two more than the ones installed on 737 aircraft with the Boeing Sky Interior.

Mike Fleming, vice-president, Boeing Fleet Services, said: “By providing our customers with a retrofit option for the Space Bins, we are allowing long-time 737 customers, like Alaska Airlines, the ability to keep their entire fleet current.”
