G'day folks!

The other day I was flipping past ch.25 in the Boeing 737-100/200 manual and noticed something. It named three options for the cabin style (overhead bins etc), the "Carry-All Compartment", "Wide-body Look", and the "ATI interior".

Now, in the diagrams one can clearly see the difference between the first two, but I couldn't find anything on the ATI interior. Also, many of the various sections say at the top of the page "all except ATI Interior", but few seem to actually apply to it. All I can really find on the ATI interior is how the passengers' emergency oxygen system is different than on other 737s.

I know I'm missing something here, but can anyone point out what this ATI interior is all about?

If I'm not mistaken (which is highly possible) the ATI interior was that applied to the -200QC 737's. They were tiny little overhead bins that pulled down from the ceiling but barely held anything. They made it so that pallets could be loaded into the cabin in the front, and you still had pax in the pack.

I've seen this interior on Alaska Airlines' -200QC back when they still flew them.

I think you're referring to the "widebody" interior that Boeing introduced on the 707/727/737 in the early 1970s, or possibly slightly earlier. It replaced the original open hatracks with small overhead bins and new ceiling/wall panels. Every 737 or 727 combi I have seen (and I have flown on a few in northern Canada) had the "widebody" interior which, as you say, permitted enough room for cargo pallets. Most Boeing narrowbodies (except the combis) were later modified with larger overhead bins to meet changing customer habits in terms of how much carry-on baggage they wanted to bring on board.

Following photos show the Boeing "widebody" interior on 707s and also on a 727 combi and 737 combi. In the 727 photo (First Air) you can see the movable divider at the front that divides the passenger cabin at the rear from the cargo compartment at the front.

I've never heard of an "ATI" interior. Perhaps it was one of the later versions with larger overhead bins.

Correct. The diagrams in the 737-100/200 MM show the "widebody look" as being the smaller bins as shown in those photos, and the "carry-all" as being the larger bins found on most 737-200s. Looks like the idea was airlines could have the widebody look which made for a more spacious cabin and allowed cargo pallets (where I come from commonly known as igloos) to fit on the main deck, or opt for the carry-all compartments which simply allowed more and larger carry-on items to be stowed.

Still haven't come up with anything on this ATI interior though.
