    How does the passenger load compare on the MD-80 versus the 737-800?. seems like the 800 may have more pax to take up that 48 bags.

    •United Airlines is retrofitting its 152 Airbus aircraft with curved bins that can accommodate up to two-thirds more bags.

    I have a hard time imagining how that's going to work.

    Is UA doing something about the bins on the 767s? Not sure about the PM CO aircraft, but the old UA planes have the tiniest imaginable bins.

    Some of the DL bins are unrealistically small.

    The old 763's are abysmal, especially in the middle section, although my roll-aboard does fit if placed in sideways. I've found the A320 can be a tight fit.
