Why Partially Lower Luggage Bins In 777?

Hi

I have been on quite a few 777s. On a recent flight from Atlanta to Paris on Delta I observed for the first time that the center overhead luggage bins are lower for a partial length, and then abruptly they are raised within the economy class.

I don't know if that's standard, and also what's the reason for it?

Delta's 777's are first generation, so they would not have the crew rest in an upper compartment. Besides Deltas T7's are older, from before the Idea popped up for the first time.

Maybe something to do with the AC?

First Generation? I assume you mean they are the -200 series...Which I will give you...otherwise...Delta created in conjunction with boeing the overhead crew rest...and it IS installed on ALL of the 777s on the lot...now mind you that's only 8 of them...but they all have overhead crew rest...If I recall correctly this exact topic was literally BEAT TO DEATH about 6 or 8 months ago  Smile

This exact topic was beat to death before... DL has refitted all of their 777's with overhead crew rests in the last year or two. They are located inbetween doors three and four. The reason that the bins are lower is to allow more room up in the crew rest.

Delta was on the first to buy the OEM 777 crewrest. If they would have bought them from Flight Structures Inc they'd have a roomier crewrest without the lower bins.
