When AirTran first ordered the 717, AirTran heavily advertised the 717s large overhead bins. With the Southwest/AirTran merger, the 717s are now being considered for elimination, therefore, everyone will have to deal with smaller bins, especially on Southwest's 737 Classics. However, WN has specified their upcoming 738s to have the Boeing Sky Interior, which has even larger bins than the 717.

I was thinking, for a more consistent product, could it be possible that WN will be the launch customer for Heath Tecna Project Amber? While the Project Amber bins are not exactly the same as those from the Boeing Sky Interior, they are a viable alternative, since the Sky Interior cannot be installed on existing aircraft. Project Amber is designed to fit on all 737 Classic, pre-Sky Interior 737NG, and all 757 aircraft.

I don't know about Heath Tecna Project Amber, but those Heath Bars sure are delicious. I hope they get some of those.

I think WN has more important things to spend money on than new bins for the 737-700s.

Especially when WN's shtick is free bags.

I doubt they would upgrade the Classics, how many more years do they have left?

Project Amber is a Sky Interior clone by Heath Tecna for existing 737s and 757s, featuring huge pivot bins. Read about it here:

The main problem with the Boeing Sky Interior is that it can't be retrofitted onto existing 737/757 aircraft, so Heath Tecna designed Project Amber to make up for that drawback of the Sky Interior.
