I am very curious as I heard from my colleages that the overhead lockers/compartments can be automatically closed by pressing a buttom on some 777s. I wonder if this is true or not. If it is, this would be very nice for both pax and cabin crew. I wonder if this is an option offered by Boeing. The O/H lockers on 777 are always heavy to close if they are fully loaded. And it is even more difficult to pull them down if they are empty. Pax tend to close them all after they get their baggage out leaving the weight exercise for the cabin crew as they conduct their after landing check.
Back to the question, just wonder if they can be automatically closed.
